Erica is a very nice lady who welcomed us with heaps of big smiles on her face. We stayed here for 1 night to celebrate our 6th Valentine and had a super great time! The interior design makes the rooms look modern and spacious despite its humble ground size. The neighbourhood is quiet, clean and safe - makes it hard to believe that the house is only minutes to the city.
We had a wonderful stay. The house was immaculate. Erica had thought of everything you would need and more. I would highly recommend staying here.
Staying at Erica'smwas like staying at an I'd friends. I was greeted as I got out of the car and shown where everything was Erica had even turned on the air on before my arriva so it was comfortable when I stepped inside. She explained where all the best restaurants were and made her recommendations.
It was a great stay and I will be back
Thank you for being such a warm host
Erica is so friendly and nice lady, and the accommodation is amazingly beautiful. My friends and I could spend comfortable days thankful for that. I highly recommend staying here!!!
It was such a lovely place. Though we stayed only for a day, Suzie made sure we were comfortable. Highly recommend staying here, everything was perfect!
Erica was a fantastic host, who greeted me warmly and ensured I knew how everything worked before giving me privacy for the duration of my stay. The apartment was just as described and was located close to the city. A few lovely touches - including chocolates, biscuits, milk, cereal, pantry items & toiletries made this a great experience.
My family and I enjoyed our stay at Erica's place. I am not new to the area, having previously stayed in Kensington on Gwenyfred road for a year as a university student, so I was pretty familiar with the area and confident that it was a peaceful and quiet area to make for a relaxing break with my family. Indeed it was just that. Erica makes for a fantastic host. Her home was ready upon our arrival, the a/c turned on due to the hot day Perth was having. Her home is immaculate similar to what she has up on the photos, although if you are keen, you will note that some of the furnishings you see in the photos have been changed but that does not take away from the fact that the property is beautifully set-up. In fact, that is a credit to her. One will easily tell that she is a Marilyn Munroe fan. Her property is tastefully decorated from the wall hangings to the sculptures that adorn her outdoor area towards the back of the property. The beds were extremely comfortable, so much so that it was hard to get out of bed come morning. I did meet up with his son, who is a lovely young man who no doubt has a wonderful lady for a mother. My mother in law who is visiting with me was really impressed by Erica's business sense and the excellence she places in presenting her place as an oasis from the hussle and bussle of city life.
I would not hesitate recommending Erica's place to my friends and/or returning for a visit to Perth and choosing to stay at Erica's place.
Evans and family.
ERICA: I love spending time with my friends and family. Have traveled to many countries and know what its like to have nothing better than a very clean, comfortable place to stay and more important having the comforts of home and a good nights sleep.
I enjoy tennis, dining, movies, entertaining and listing to music . I love the outdoors in summer and meeting new people which is half the attraction of being an AIRBnB host.. I love cooking and gardening. I enjoying most of my time being at home and living in Kensington so close to Perth as everyone in the street/neighborhood are all very friendly.
AARON: My adorable son is in year 12 at school who is studying media. Maybe a film director one day.
ANIMALS: Our 2 beautiful cats Mia & Cougar will also make you welcome, on the odd occasion I look after a very cute dog Freeway . They spend a lot of time inside my house and the back yard and no allowed in the guests unit so you may be greeted with a couple of very friendly pets. I do not allow them inside the Villa/unit for the guests benefit just to keep it pet free clean.
We are polite, respectful, easy going, nothing is too much trouble and know our guest will be the same.
