Fantastic stay at Trish and Nigel's Riverside Retreat! the place is everything that has been described and even more!! Trish and Nigel were really kind and generous- Trish communicated with us to help facilitate our check in and out times to make our trip more convenient, the kitchenette was stocked with lots of goodies and Nigel helped get ready their bikes so we could ride around the river and enjoy Perth! wish we could have stayed longer! will definitely recommend this!!
We have just had the most fantastic stay with Trisha and Nigel at their luxurious riverside retreat in Perth. We cannot rate both the accommodation and Trisha and Nigel's warm and super friendly welcome enough. They are fabulous hosts and nothing was too much trouble. They were always on hand to offer invaluable advice of the surrounding area. We were even given a personal guided tour by Nigel who gave us our bearings and pointed out lots of the local landmarks.
We were able to use the hosts bikes to take lovely cycle rides along the local riverbank which is moments away. As for the accommodation. It is everything described and more. Truly 5 star luxury and superbly comfortable. A great bed, fantastic cotton linen and absolutely spotlessly clean. We could have stayed forever! Thank you Trish and Nigel for the most fabulous time in your beautiful home.
We returned to Trish and Nigel's place after our first stay and if possible it was even better. Everything was perfectly ready and we were warmly welcomed even if it was a bit late; it realy felt like coming back home.
We have no doubt recommending this place to anyone and we look forward to visiting again. The house and everything in it is perfect, the pool and the outside area very beautiful and well equipped with the barbecue, bikes are great to get around the river and the parks, and again Trish and Nigel are incredibly friendly and caring.
This was the best introduction to what Airbnb can offer that my family
could have wished for. Trish and Nigel were extremely good hosts, they
were friendly, up for a chat and a laugh, provided great advice on local
eateries, tourists sites and activities in the area. In fact they went
beyond the call of duty as hosts to ensure that our holiday, with our 4
month old son went smoothly.
The accommodation was perfect; it was luxurious, clean and had everything
at hand. It was great to have access to the BBQ, vegetable garden and the
pool. We could not recommend this property and Trish and Nigel enough.
This place is fabulous and the hosts are great. Trish has been very helpful in organizing our stay even before we got there, making sure everything was ready and enjoyable for our family. After arriving there, Nigel and her have been wonderful hosts, very respectful of our privacy but also very open to let us into their daily routine, chatting, dining with friends and neighbors, exploring the area and getting to shops and sightseeing places.
The house itself is very beautiful, even better than it looks in the pictures. It is bright, spacious, clean, equipped with all sorts of food and goods, and everything is first class, from the coffee machine to the bedsheets, towels, tv screen, and so on.
The pool, bicycles, and the riverside park were the final great bits for us to relax and enjoy this little corner of comfort, peace, and tranquillity.
Great location! Well stocked. Comfortable.
Trish and Nigel were the most wonderful hosts for our Perth adventure. We came for kitesurfing on Perth's beaches and it turns out that one of the best spots to learn kite surfing was swan river, right by this airbnb!
The ensuite is super cute, cozy and practical, and with all the amenities that are provided, it feels more like a five star hotel room than your typical airbnb. Better even- Nigel and Trish were kind enough to let us do laundry, left food in the fridge, provided bikes, gave us a drive around town for orientation, shared their private DVD collection, researched tour ideas and called kite surfing schools, and also offered their canoe... They are fun to talk to, and super sweet in offering help in whatever you might need.
Trish&Nigel's place is 5 star quality!Just as they are!We could not have asked for more considerate and friendly hosts...they were helpful and their main priority was to give us the best experience possible. Their place is brand new and spotless clean with a bed that will give you the best night's rest you could ask for!The sparkling pool gives you the peaceful and holiday feel you are looking for!We were welcomed with lots of tasty snacks and delicious food on our late night arrival.We will recommend their place to anyone and you will not be dissapointed!
This is our best Airbnb experience by far. Everything stated in the post is real.
Huge bathroom (scented!), well equipped kitchenette, king size bed, top quality linen, silent air-conditioning, 55" TV; good surround speaker, free internet access and free parking. You have a suite with lots of privacy!
Most importantly, Trish and Nigel are very warm and understanding person! They have a lot of passion and knowledge to share their lovely neighbourhood and Perth with us!
They have detailed information listed in a file to inform us where to go and what to eat too. We arrived in the evening , Trish recommended us to try this lovely Cafe /Restaurant - Itz Amore, we love the food there.
Nigel shown us ard Perth and Fremantle and gave us a quick history of Perth too. This show how much of effort both of them put into this to make it a memorable and quality stay.
They even lend us their own bicycle to for us to ride to Point Walter!
I just want to say this is a world class stay with Trish and Nigel! I highly recommend to others. Wish we could stay longer!
Nigel and Trish were fantastic hosts. Gave us some tips about the surroundings and also loan us bikes to explore. The room was spotless, spacious and the big tv and sound system were excellent. Totally exceeded our expectations! Would definitely recommend anyone to stay there!
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
