We had a fantastic time staying with Steve. He shared with us everything from local advice, his excellent cooking and wine and a tour around the area. Steve made us feel comfortable and welcome in his home. There was plenty of room for all our luggage, bus stop round the corner to get to Fremantle and Perth.
Steve was an amazing host, he was so accommodating, entertaining and friendly. My colleague and I became good friends with Steve over the two week stay with him and we really look forward to our next visit. Highly recommended!! A++
Steve is a great host, he was very helpful for us !
We spoke together very easily, about lots of subjects. The house is simple but very comfortable, clean and fully equipped. There is plenty of space to stock your stuff. The house is located in a nice neighborhood, supermarket and other shops are close. We spent a great moment at his house.
Cheers Steve !

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.
About the Host, Steve
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.
