The area offers recreational foreshore areas, natural limestone cliff formations and a very large reserve area. Walking and cycling paths meander along the Swan River foreshore. Tennis Courts and Point Walter Public Golf Course are literally ‘up the road’, situated hilltop capturing sweeping views of the Swan River.

It (email hidden)ly street life‚ a thriving café culture (locally known as the cappuccino strip) and an alternative arts scene amidst the workings of a fully functional port.

Interaction with Guests

We look forward to meeting you and are here to welcome you and help where we can. We mainly use separate areas of the house so we offer our guests as much privacy as possible. We do however get on with our normal activities of daily living which includes cleaning, maintenance and gardening.

The Neighborhood

There are popular bars, café's, and restaurants close by the house on the water front along with 2 Yacht Clubs. Sometimes if you are lucky YOU CAN SEE DOLPHINS when walking along the river side. Swans, ducks and pelicans are a regular feature of the river scape along with Yachts and boats etc. There is also Tennis Courts just down the road.

THERE ARE MANY ACTIVITIES AND THINGS OF INTEREST: Brochures and information on many activities/timetables are available in the house. There are quite a number of restaurants, bars and coffee shops within reasonable walking distance. I HAVE A WHOLE LIST (WITH AUTO LINKS) OF THINGS YOU COULD CONSIDER DOING SO IF YOU WOULD LIKE ME TO SEND IT TO YOU LET ME KNOW.

Getting around

TRANSPORT near the house- There is a bus service to Fremantle or Perth city centre that runs during the day (3 min walk) or another that runs late into the night 1.3 km (12 mins walk).
We are next to the river, beach and Fremantle. Perth City Centre is a short (30 min) bus &/or train trip away. So you have the best of both within easy reach. You can enjoy the quirky atmosphere of Fremantle, take long riverside walks or go to the beach 5 mins away by car.

TRANSPORT from Airport. There is now a bus from the airport which requires 1 bus transfer. Ask me how. There is also a shuttle service that operates to and from Fremantle that will DROP AND PICK UP AT THE DOOR (approx. $40 per couple). A Taxi from the airport is approximately $50

Other Things to Note

Air-conditioning is an evaporative system which is whole of house system (all or nothing).

  • My second stay with Joolz and Ric and again wonderful. Great hosts, nice room, comfy and cool despite the heat of Perth. Had a lovely time and my stay was all the better for their hospitality

    See you again soon guys

    March 2014
  • It was warmly & friendly welcome from you & Ric on the day we arrived. Even it was short stay only 3D 2N, we feel very comfortable, the rooms were good, house is spacious & bathroom is clean. It is very pleasant place to stay! The stunning views of Swan River makes me & my parents enjoyed most when we had morning work at the riverside. I will stay at your place if I return to Fremantle. Thanks Julie & Ric you were very hospitable and being so helpful giving us directions to Fremantle

    February 2014
  • A very comfortable and friendly space to stay. Julie and Ric are great hosts, always prepared to help, or just there for some conversation. Fremantle is about an hour walk along the beautiful bank of the river Swan.

    October 2013
  • Julie and Ric have a wonderful large house and backyard, the room was great and they are excellent, helpful hosts - they even extended my stay for a couple of nights at the last minute to help me out(Ric also drove me into the Freo train station when he saw me wandering in the wrong direction on my first morning there!!). Buses are nearby, the Left Bank a short walk away. Thanks guys, hope to see you again soon.

    October 2013
  • Julie and Ric's were kind enough to accommodate my mother at short notice. Lucky they did because she really enjoyed her stay. She said they very welcoming hosts and the apartment was close to just about everything you need as well as the beach! Would recommend to anyone going to Fremantle and she looks forward to staying there in the future.

  • Friendly people, good location

    August 2013
  • Great stay!

    We had a lovely time in their gorgeous house. There is a beautiful walk to Freo, and the hosts were wonderful and accommodating.

    Beautiful room, gorgeous garden, just a fantastic experience.

  • Lovely hosts and nice quiet room, very clean and comfortable. Thanks Julie and Ric!

    Response from Joolz & Ric:

    Thank you Gabe it was a pleasure. Regards Julie

  • Down to earth hosts who are frequent travelers themselves so Julie and Ric would understand your needs. Great location, clean and comfortable. Peaceful and quiet at night in the neighborhood which helps a good night sleep. Fremantle market is a short drive away and I find that very convenient. Great alternative if you want to escape the busy Perth city which is a 20min drive away.

    Response from Joolz & Ric:

    Thanks Mei Ling. It was nice to meet you both. All the best. Julie

  • I was glad for the time I spent there because it meant that I could recharge my overworked batteries and get a great restful vacation at the same time...!
    Both Julie and Ric Amor were attentive to my every needs and helped me make the very best of the third leg of my great Australian trip!
    And I can't wait for the next opportunity to come and stay at River Vu...
    What a fabulous location! I cannot decide what I liked most, between the peace and tranquillity, to the tremendous surroundings, or perhaps the whole convenience of being so close to everything while being secluded enough to be comfortable.
    This is a place for a writer or an artist who wants privacy and peace, while being in a position to enjoy the outstanding vistas and riverside!
    5 Stars for comfort, convenience and memorability!

AS HOSTS: Hi, we are a down to earth couple that have been lucky to host some really lovely people over a few years. We are generally pretty quiet and a little on the shy side and don’t like to be intrusive. We therefore tend to give our guests space but we are available to chat should you wish and we try to help out where we can and want our guests to be comfortable and enjoy their stay with us. We generally use separate parts of the house however there is some areas of overlap. Our aim is to provide a little bit of separation to provide more privacy than would otherwise be possible in a share situation. We like to be at home, generally pottering around (renovating and gardening). AS GUESTS: We’ve travelled a bit and stayed in Airbnb homes in US, Spain and here in OZ, so we know what it is like to stay with new people (especially the first time). We enjoy the adventure of finding our way around, new things, different cultures and fitting in and ‘doing’ as local people do. As guests we are very sensitive, respectful and clean guests that are appreciative that you have allowed us to share your home. We hope to get the opportunity to meet you and make friends on our travels. OUR LISTINGS ARE: Garden vu room- https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/54877 Cosy room- https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/92945 river vu room - https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/44914 We would really appreciate it if you fill in a bit of your Airbnb profile with picture...so we can put a face to the people who are interested in staying with us... Have a great stay in the sunny Fremantle and Perth, we hope to have the pleasure to meet you and help you enjoy your stay.
