I was in Perth for work and to visit for the first time for longer then 24 hours. Erica's duplex provided a great place to base myself out of, free wifi, all amenities you could want and more and some great takeaway places around the corner.
Highly recommend it when you have a car in perth to stay with Erica and use it as a base.
What a Gem! After spending 10 days in Bali it was great to stay in such a modern, stylish, clean place. It had everything there you could want & Erica was very helpful & friendly. Thank you Erica, we will definitely stay with you if ever in Perth again!!!
Our stay in Perth was lovely! The apartment was perfect, in a great position and our host was great! I will be staying here again when we are in Perth!! Thanks Erica!
I stayed Erica's unit for 3 days with my husband.
Erica is very good host. She is a warm-hearted person! We arrived her unit at midnight however she welcomed us with smile and gave us milk for breakfast. The unit was clean and organized, it had everything we needed - slippers, extra blankets, travel brochure, (email hidden)c. I guess Erica is accustomed to traveling. We liked the interior and garden. The interior was so beautiful and we really felt at home. The garden was well-kept. I loved to see fully bloomed roses from garden chair:) One night, Erica came to tell us to watch fireworks. Fireworks were set off in Perth City and we could watch it from the unit! It was memorable.
The unit is located in quite and safe area - 20 to 30 minutes from CBD by car. The car rental store which Erica recommended was very good. They delivered a car to the unit.
This was our 2nd visiting to Perth. Thanks to Erica, we loved Perth more than before. We would like to stay in Erica's unit at the next time, too.

Erica is a fabulous host who provided us with all the information we wanted. she is always free for a chat and is ever so nice. We came back late one night and she helped to take in all our clothing from the clothesline and even folded them nicely - that's how awesome she is. the house has every creature comfort you can think of and my personal favourite was the milk frother which gave me the much needed cappucino in the morning. the house is also around the corner from convenience stores and restaurants that open up to 8pm in the evening and buses into the city is just a 5-10min walk away! I will definitely stay here again!
Very nice house in a quiet area!
We enjoyed two weeks in this lovely furnished house. It has everything you need! The hostess Erica is very pleasant and cares their guests with passion. Every morning we enjoyed our breakfast on the terrace in front of the house. Also the garden behind the house is lovely decorated and maintained. The house is well located and by car you can reach Perth Downtown in 10-15 minutes.
We absolutely recommend this house. We would stay here again.
Erica has certainly thought of everything in this "home away from home".
Every comfort has been supplied and it really felt like home!
Very well located near a couple of restaurants and corner shop to grab that emergency tub of ice cream or chocolate!
Thank you for a great stay!
The apartment was beautiful, and if can't think how Erica could equip it any better - even a whole drawer of sewing stuff and a Christmas tree. She was very welcoming and helpful too. Would definitely recommend it.
Erica has set the benchmark high as an excellent host. Her duplex is super cosy and complete with necessities you would expect from a lovely home. I said 'home' because hotels barely provide basic necessities. I would choose to stay at her duplex over any hotels in Perth CBD. This is my point of view as someone who regularly stays in Four Seasons and Mandarin Oriental hotels worldwide during business trips every month.
It is in a very convenient location. 3mins walking distance from convenience store, 3-5mins from Crown (Burswood) and Perth CBD.
Erica lives next door which means help is just a few seconds away if you need any assistance with your stay. At the same time, she gives full privacy to her guests.
Fabulous host, clean and nicely designed home - what else can I ask for?
Erica's home is very nice and is right next door to her if you needed anything. She was very accommodating and kind towards us during our short stay.
Everything you would expect in this home are provided and you can tell that Erica has made an effort to ensure the home is very comfortable for her guests. The villa itself is a few minutes walk to close by supermarket and restaurants. There are also several bus services in the area which are only 5-10 minutes away depending on which bus.
The experience at this home has been a great experience and I highly recommend booking a place with Erica.
