Interaction with guests
Each villa is completely separate, my wife and I live in the front villa and are keen to help in any way we can, but happy to leave you as you please.
Cottesloe is one of the best located swimming beaches in Western Australia with great walks, local bars, lots of restaurants, local supermarket and takeaway options just up the road.
We have free bikes available or the nearest train station is just 10 minutes walk where you can travel to Claremont, Subiaco and Perth City in one direction or go explore the port City of Fremantle the other way. Also a local bus on our street goes directly to Perth.
Other things to note
The famous Cottesloe main beach is about 10 minutes walk south, otherwise our local beach has a great swimming and snorkelling spot just 5 minutes away. See the Guidebook for a complete rundown of local attractions.
This is a residential area and we expect our guests to respect our neighbours peace and privacy at all times. Definitely no loud parties or anti social behaviour. Absolutely NO SMOKING allowed inside the Villa, outdoor smoking is okay.
Married with 3 grown up kids and excited to be part of the Air BNB community, love preparing our places for a comfortable stay, meeting people from around the world and helping guests discover the best of local food and West Australian beach side living.
