Rika's place was great! It had everything we needed and she thoughtfully provided cereal/ tea/ coffee/ condiments/ toiletries. We particularly appreciated the hand held shower head so that we can shower our 2y8m old easily. If you have young and curious ones, please be careful as Rika's place has some glassware around and you would not want to break them by accident!

Rika was waiting for us when we arrived. She showed us around the house. It was an easy check in. Fantastic location - was a convenient drive to everywhere. Parking was great - just next to the house. The cafe round the corner offers good breakfast. The baby highchair provided is handy for us! Thanks, Rika!

Our family enjoyed our stay in Rika's lovely duplex. We were travelling with a 3 month old infant and the portacot was vital to our needs. Rika was a joy to communicate with, she was clear, responsive and readily accessible. Thank you Rika!

Rika User ProfileRika is a superhost.

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 so close to Perth as everyone in the street/neighborhood are all very friendly.

ANIMALS: I have one cat that is very shy and keeps to her self and on the odd occasion I look after a very cute dog. They spend a lot of time inside my house and sometimes in the back yard and never 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 I know our guests will be the same.
