Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We had a wonderful stay at Liz's cottage. Liz was there to meet us and show us how everything works. She left us with some afternoon tea goodies which were much appreciated. The cottage is exactly as shown in the photos. It was a delight to come "home" each evening after busy days with family reunion in Perth. This made our stay in Perth the best ever!

  • What can we say.........the cottage is exactly how it looks in the photos!!!... 100% better than we were expecting.

    Liz is a lovely host, and the cottage was like home from home... the coffee machine, the BBQ, kitchen and the bed were all fantastic.....!!!..

    Liz recommended a few places and shops to visit and all were excellent, we really could not have wished for a better stay in Perth.

    The cottage is very close to all the transport, and Freo is easy to get to.

    Thanks Liz, see you again soon.

  • Just wonderful !
    From the email we received prior our arrival to organize our check-in to our departure, everything was just perfect ! The cottage is spotless, spacious and the patio is lovely with a hammock to relax after long days in Fremantle.
    When we entered in the cottage, everything was set up for us : fresh fruits, chocolat, ice cream, bread....and a chill bottle of wine !
    Thank you Liz, your place is amazing and we will come back again !

  • We loved staying in this gorgeous cottage. Everywhere you look there is some interesting touch, some extra thoughtful provision, from a very generous array of goodies to candles to beach towels to sunscreen. There is nothing more that we could have wanted. We did not get to meet Liz but she communicated well with us and we were well looked after by her friend Helen. The house is very close to Fremantle both by car and the local bus.We were just disappointed that we only had three days to enjoy the peace of the lovely courtyard.

  • The week in the cottage in Freo was perfect! The cottage is lovely, arty, comfy and the veranda is the perfect place for a first coffee in the morning and a BBQ and some wine under the stars in the evening. Helen was there whenever needed and she is such a friendly and helpful person who gived us a feeling of being home. The communication with Liz was easy, fast and friendly, too. Explore WA by hire car: we did some amazing day trips to the Pinnacles and to Margret River and spent some relaxing hours at the fantastic beaches. For sure we´ll be back one day because one week was not enough. Thanks a lot!

  • Great cottage to stay in for our week in Freo. Everything needed was provided as well as a considerable stock of extras including quality food and wine. Very generous! The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful with easy access to both Perth and Freo using our hire car. Would definitely book again if we ever come back.

  • Amazing little cottage. It's such a great place to stay and Liz really has thought of everything. I really could not recommend it more.

  • What a gem of a place. Great position, easy to get to everything and just about the perfect size- especially with the use of the 2 outdoor areas/zones. The hosts have thought of everything, literally; this creative and relaxing place comes highly recommended! Thank-you

  • This place definitely lives up to its name . Lots of character, plenty of space for 2 including outside space and parking . From the moment you walk in the door you know your going to have a good time in the cottage . Liz gives you a great starter pack for your arrival and there are lots of extra goodies as well around the place. There was wi fi too. It's in a good position within easy access to town by 15 min bus journey. All communication was friendly and efficient before and during our stay. We would definately come back and recommend it to others. Thanks Liz and Helen you have thought of everything.

  • We loved our stay in Eclectic Cottage at White Gum Valley, Perth, Western Australia. It was perfect for us - quiet, comfortable and roomy with interesting artwork. Loved the hammock. Could have spent the whole week in it.

I'm a Freo local with a passion for my city, its beaches, cafes, relaxed vibe and friendly people. Most Summer days I'm on the beach with my partner Jim and dogs enjoying the calm and clean waters of South Fremantle. We've lived in our South Freo house for many years, and have recently bought and restored early c1900 limestone stables in White Gum Valley into a short stay/bolthole with all modern comforts. We want to share this space with like-minded people and hope you'll enjoy the peace, beauty and environs of the cottage. We love to travel, and know that every place we stay has to feel like a little bit of home... we'll try our best to make sure you are comfortable and happy while in ours. Thanks for stopping by! Liz and Jim
