Very nice guy , lovely house . Would definitely recommended him !! Perfect journey
Steve è stato assolutamente incredibile, tanto per cominciare ci è venuto a prendere dall'aeroporto e ci avrebbe riaccompagnato alla partenza se non ci avessero accompagnato altri amici... Ci ha lasciato libero uso di bagno e cucina e in casa regnava il massimo rispetto da parte di tutti, siamo stati davvero benissimo e abbiamo fatto amicizia! La casa è pulita e accogliente! Le stanze sono 2, una l'abbiamo usata per i bagagli e l'altra per (website hidden) ha accompagnato a visitare vari posti interessanti e ci ha preparato anche un paio di volte la cena! Davvero una persona squisita e simpatica! Consigliato! Ci sono un centro commerciale e una fermata del bus a circa 10-15 minuti di cammino.
I had a great time staying with Steve. The man couldn't do enough for you, between local advice, excellent cooking and giving me a tour around the area. I would have no problem staying with him again as he made me feel very at home. Probably the best experience I have had with Air BNB.
Steve is a great host. Very friendly and helpful. The first night we prepared a great pasta and drank good wine. A nice way to begin to get together.
The location of the house is great.
My stay at Steve place was awesome. I cannot imagine a better start in my Australian journey. He was very helpfull with my search for a car, cook me delicious meals (because i'm the worst coock ever), the wine etc. The list is so long ! Steve is simply a great guy.
I had 2 rooms just for myself, the house is spacious and is situated just between Fremantle and Perth.
My partner and I stayed with Steve while we looked for a place to live in Perth. Steve gave us the perfect welcome to Perth. He was friendly and full of advice about where to live and where not to live and lots of tips. His place is spotless and spacious. The second room was great because we could put all our stuff in their out of the way. He cooked us a couple of fantastic meals including the BEST fish we've ever tasted. We had some wonderful conversations and felt very relaxed and welcome in his home. Steve's a really interesting guy with a wealth of experience and it was fascinating listening to his stories. Melville is also a lovely area, very quiet and leafy. It was very convenient to get to Fremantle and Perth city, though we did have a car. Would highly recommend staying with Steve!
Steve is a most friendly host who is happy to open his home to his guests and for them to treat it as their own. He is very helpful with introducing you to Perth & Freemantle. He is happy to share a meal and his cooking is excellent.
Mature easy-going person. I no longer work for a seafood wholesaler but (lucky) visiting seafood lovers might still be in for a treat. I am a handy cook and have a wide variety of interests, including literature, contemporary music, theatre and film. Sport? Table tennis, tennis and cycling. I have not long returned from a trip to Italy - which I would like to revisit - so it would be nice to host someone fluent in that tongue.
