Erica was there to welcome us and explain how the very modern house works. It is a lovely place, and we felt at home right from the start. Erica also thoughtfully started the heaters in the living room and back bedroom before we arrived as there was a cold spell the weekend we were there. There was a good range of cereal and coffee/teas available for breakfast and a quick snack, and there is an IGA and yummy kebabs place only 2 mins walk away. It is a lovely quiet neighbourhood, and we had no trouble finding our way to more good food within 5 - 10 mins drive along albany highway and at westfield. We would highly recommend this place to anyone!
Great place to stay! Really close to the city, and easy to get to. It honestly felt like a home away from home with all the creature comforts we could possibly need. Erica was more than helpful and greeted us kindly on arrival. We'd definitely recommend this place to others and happily stay again in the future :)
What a beautiful house you've got! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Your friendliness and generosity definitely had a big part in making our holiday very memorable. Look forward to out next stay again if there's a chance!
Erica was very accommodating finding a place for a small group of our guests who needed a place to stay. Our guests had only positive things to stay about Erica's place and so we will come back to Erica in the future :)
Awesome stay with Erica! All the amenities were well equipped and there were even cereals provided by the host. The place was clean and smelling good. I felt at home and slept very well. Freeway was an adorable dog and had gave us a lot of fun during the stay. I would definitely recommend a stay with Erica. She s a great host and even went out the extra miles for us at times!
We had a great time staying here, and have no complaints at all. The property was beautiful and had everything we needed. It was a great neighborhood, and everyone was friendly. The house is right around the corner from an excellent deli and a mini mart as well. Erica was an awesome and helpful host. She answered any questions we had and provided recommendations on where to eat and visit. Staying here really made the trip unforgettable, and would recommend it for everyone. 10/10 Would stay again.
This was my first AirBnB experience, and it was definitely a good one. The unit I rented with a friend was very well appointed. The beds were awesome, the towels were luxurious, and the decor was really cool! Erica was extremely attentive and helpful, not to mention gracious, polite, professional, and friendly. This experience really set the bar high :-)
About the Host, Erica
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.
