Our property is ideally located for travellers or short stays in Perth, WA. It is a one bedroom, first floor apartment that sleeps up to 4 people.

The Space

The apartment is completely self-contained, with 1 spacious bedroom, a bathroom, newly renovated kitchen and living area. Most furnishings and equipment are new. An undercover dedicated car bay is available downstairs. The apartment complex has a shared laundry area, with plenty of washing machines for your use, and a large clothes drying area. The unit comes with an iron and ironing board, laundry basket and pegs for your laundry.

My kitchen is fully stocked with all the basics, such as an oven, stovetop, microwave, electric kettle, toaster, as well as pots, pans, crockery, cutlery – everything you may require to cook a nice meal. There is a nespresso machine and milk frother (aerochino) provided. Nespresso pods are also provided for your stay. If you have a preference, please let me know and i'll do my best to accomodate your request. The pantry is also stocked with breakfast cereals, pasta, rice, oil and a range of spices for your cooking needs. A range of teas are also provided for your convenience. We have a communal organic vegetable patch downstairs, and guests are welcome to help themselves to whatever is ready (and in season). If you wish to stock your fridge/pantry with more, send us a list of your preferences and we'll do our best to get them in for you - you pay us the shop receipt.

The apartment comes with all linen provided – doonas (duvets) and covers, blankets, sheets, pillows, teatowels, towels, bathmats, hand towels; everything you could possible need for your stay! The usual toiletries/cleaning fluids are also provided to save you buying those.

My apartment is walking distance from the local shops, which has a supermarket, bakery, liquor store, cafe, newsagent and pharmacy. Public transport is excellent, with the bus service just outside the apartment complex. There is also a lovely lake and park within a short walking distance.

The Perth CBD is only a short five to ten minute drive. The neighbouring suburbs of Subiaco and Leederville has plenty of restaurants and nightlife.
Check in/out times can be flexible, depending on other guests so please ask in advance.

Airport pick up and drop off can be arranged at extra cost (between 6.30 am and 10.30 pm)

Guest Access

Wifi (via a wifi toggle) is available at additional cost. Please enquire if required.

Interaction with Guests

I believe in giving my guests their privacy. They are welcome to call or text me if they require any assistance.

The Neighborhood

Wembley is a lovely family oriented neighbourhood. My apartment complex is a short walking distance from Lake Monger, where you can go for a nice stroll. The Ingredient Tree is a great cafe down the road that offers a yummy brekkie.

Getting around

My apartment is a short 7 minute drive to the CBD, and 5 min drive to trendy Subiaco and Leederville. If you require public transport, there is a bus stop just outside the apartment complex. Its a 5 min bus ride to the Glendalough train station, which is 3 stops from Perth station.

  • The apartment was exactly what we were looking for. Thanks heaps Illiona!

  • Lovely apartment in great location. Clean, convenient, not huge but big enough. The apartment has all the amenities you need with shops and takeaways nearby. Easy drive into the city. Illiona was a great host who ensured I was met on arrival and the place was stocked with basic food and drink meaning I didn't have to go straight out to the shops. Great apartment with a good host making it a perfect base for a trip to perth.

  • Our stay in this apartment, made our stay in OZ just perfect! Very clean and cozy. You get there everything you need! The location was for us very good. Just a few minutes from Scarborough and Hillarys harbor and just a few kilometers from the City!

  • Illiona's apartment was really clean, friendly, in a quiet area. She was a wonderful host, she left food and drinks for us, she even bought amazing cookies. We were like home, thanks Illiona

  • I didn't meet Illiona personally as my friend checked in & out. But great that she had free bottles of water & drinks in the fridge, some snacks, & organised my bedding for sofa bed.

    Getting the portable Wifi was very good value for money. Air-con worked well. Shower's temperature was a bit hard to adjust/keep constant but fine for short stay. Laundry is out of the house for $3 per load.

    Convenient location as it's close to freeway. Only a few minutes drive from Subiaco & Perth CBD.

  • They say Perth is the most isolated city in the world. Consequently, you'd imagine it would be hard to feel 'at home' anywhere within the city limits. Not so.

    Thanks to it being clean, well-stocked, and fully-furnished, this inner-city pad was, indeed, a home away from home for this weary traveller. The place even had a coffee machine!! I mean, seriously, who does that?!

    Illiona is an incredibly generous host with a great little place. Do yourself a favour and stay there.

  • Illiona was a great host. The appartment was very comfortable and well equipted, and close to amenities including supermarket, bakery, 'bottle shop', take away, cafe and train station (just 2 stops to central Perth). When we arrived there were cold drinks in the fridge, some snacks, and Illiona even accommodated our requests for decaf coffee for the nepresso machine. We stayed for three weeks and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thanks Illiona

    February 2014
  • Thankyou Illiona. Very clean & comfortable bed. Very thoughtful in leaving bottled water & other nibblies.Quiet block of units with carport for car. Great (email hidden)anks again. Reenie from Melbourne

    January 2014
  • My husband and I were staying in the apartment when Illiona was out of the country. However, she was still very helpful, checking on how were doing and answering various queries via email.
    The apartment has all essentials that you'd need for a comfortable stay. It is also near an IGA and Herdsman Fresh. Good coffee is available at Ingredient Tree about 700m away. A real convenient location indeed!

About Matt: I'm a freelance photographer based in Perth, Western Australia. For over 15 years I've been working in the media industry, mainly working for major newspapers. I can offer my guests private photography workshops going over pretty much any aspect of photography with them. Specialising in off-camera flash techniques, I'm often called the Australian version of Joe McNally. Please message me your requirements and I will get back to you on a price. I live in my current Rivervale home with my wife, who also has her Wembley unit listed on Airbnb. I found Airbnb after struggling to find affordable accommodation for an overseas holiday. I thought I would then offer the same services for those wishing to stay in Perth, that was not only affordable but also met my expectations. About Illiona:
