About this listing
You are welcome to stay in a bright, comfortable room in a funky green home close to the Perth CBD, public transport, river walks and the trendy Mt Lawley cafe strip. Your spacious room comes with eclectic decor and artwork, a comfortable queen-size bed and a Mac computer with reliable wifi. The bathroom is directly opposite your room.
Our property has a huge wild backyard with a mini eucalyptus forest, productive banana trees and 2 natural springs. The benches in our kitchen are made of wood from a Queensland Mahogany planted in our yard over 27 years ago. A balcony set in the treetops is a perfect spot to take in the unique surroundings.
Breakfast is basic 'help-yourself' and includes a choice of muesli, toast and eggs. A range of teas and (plunger) coffee is available at any time. You are welcome to use the kitchen any time, including the Thermomix! All linen and towels are provided.
Our home is semi-detached - the duplex next door is also available for short stays on Airbnb (see our 2nd listing). Ten years ago we built (with our own hands!) our master bedroom and bathroom downstairs. Oliva, our loveable 17yo hipster son, lives upstairs and speaks pretty good Italian. Lola, our golden cocker spaniel, will also delight!
Our solar-powered electricity, rain water collection, recycling and composting will appeal to guests seeking green-accommodation.
The Swan River is at the end of our street ~ a gorgeous walk (or bike ride) in one direction takes you to the free CAT bus in East Perth, inlet cafes, Perth City Farm* and the Perth CBD. The pathway in the other direction meanders for miles through wetlands and parks. Our canoe, called 'Carrot', and a range of push bikes & helmets are available to use.
The duplex is just 10mins drive from the domestic airport (20mins from the international) and 3mins from the interstate train station. Off road parking is available at the front of the duplex.
* Perth City Farm has a fabulous coffee shop and organic produce markets on every Saturday from 7am - noon.
