About This Listing
My timber cottage is quiet, clean and fresh, with polished floor boards and reverse-cycle ducted air-conditioning (not in kitchen) so never too hot or too cold.
The kitchen has the usual requirements - pots, plates, cutlery, coffee machine for that morning fix, microwave, sandwich maker etc. if you wish to cook at home.
The bathroom is small but functional - 2nd toilet out the back. Towels and linen available.
Myrtle Street is a cul-de-sac with a community atmosphere ; the only traffic in the street is the neighbours - extremely quiet and private. You can relax in the back yard, sit on the front porch or enjoy a cosy night in front of the TV.
Or head out and take a walk into town - just a 20 min walk to the city centre. 15mins to Beaufort St Cafes and boutique stores and 10min to the rapidly growing, funky William St with its small designer shops, small bars and music scene. Also, Leederville cafe strip, Luna Cinema, Northbridge restaurants, nightspots and Chinatown are also a short walk away. 5 min walk to Hyde Park and 2 mins to Robertson Park and tennis courts. Of course, if you have a car, these times are greatly reduced.
A visitor parking permit is available - please remember to put it back as it is the only one I have
Close to public transport buses into city and free Cat bus system
My house is a private get away if you want a "home" rather than a "hotel" for your vacation. My style is a bit quirky and "different" and I have my "found objects" artworks on the walls.
No smoking inside please.
If smoking outside please use the ashtray as I'm a bit paranoid about the deck catching fire as there are dead leaves under it.
If it's really hot, could you please water my poor attempt at a garden.
Would you mind bringing in the rubbish bins if they are on the street and then use them particularly for food scraps - don't want to attract vermin etc
I use the side door entry as the front door. Please lock everything you open and make sure the front door is securely closed with latch closed - no need to deadlock
There is an extra single mattress under the double bed if it is needed
There should be plenty of linen and towels etc - bottom drawer of chest of drawers in bedroom 1 and bottom shelf of cupboard for 2nd bedroom.
The reverse cycle air - con / heater control panel is in the hallway - just push the on button. I don't usually play with the settings too much. As there is no air con in the kitchen, it works more efficiently if you close the door to the kitchen as this gets very hot with the afternoon sun setting.
Instruction manuals are available for kitchen appliances when you arrive.
Please respect my house as it is my home and although it is need of a renovation, I still love it and it is a great place to live and hang out.
Enjoy your time here and in Perth W.A
It was really easy to communicate with Terri and she was really helpful with us. We love her beautiful home and the pictures do not do justice as her home is much more amazing when we were there. Her home is located very near the city and accessible even when we arrived late at night. I love that Terri kept her home really clean and cosy for our stay. The full pantry was an added bonus too! Totally a perfect experience!
Myrtle St Cottage is a wonderful place to stay. I spent 5 days there with my family. Terri was incredibly accommodating and at the last minute managed to arrange for an extra guest to stay. We really enjoyed having the room to spread out a bit and enjoyed lunches on the deck. Her home is funky and we enjoyed the artwork. She popped the essentials in the fridge: juice, milk and butter and then went all out and added in dips, pesto, smoothie juice etc. If we were back in Perth we would stay here in a heart beat! It was a wonderful experience.
Terri has a very beautiful house, a very classic bedroom, kitchen with full equipment, and the house are with fashionable design.
Terri give us a lot of help, provide us a lot of information, prepare us breakfast.
This is our third time visiting Perth and This is the best accommodation experience we have ever.
I stayed with my family for 3 nights in Terry's house. Everything was great, the house is charming and located in a quiet area but walking distance to North Bridge. We felt very comfortable and happy as she had prepared a very warm welcome. The house is clean and pleasant and has everything you need. I would highly recommend it.
My sister and I stayed here on our first visit to Perth and it was perfect. Terri kept in touch with us before,during and after our stay, even greeting us with a welcome basket of Cava, dips, yogourts, milk, butter etc. The house was uncluttered with clean architectural lines, artwork, excellent aircon and everything one would need. We could walk into the city centre in 30 minutes and there is a great corner shop 30 secs away and a Dan Murphy's within five minutes- a necessity for enjoying the back garden. Okay, so we are English, but to be able to drink excellent coffee, toasted fruitbread and fresh in-season mango's whilst sitting under a citrus tree listening to kookaburra's laughing, magpies carolling, rosella's sweeping by and a butch gang of black cockatoos filling the sky when breakfasting was quite simply magical and not to be forgotten.
We spent a really nice time in Perth. Terri's house is lovely especially the outdoor terrace. We highly recommend this place!
Der perfekte Ort,um sich nach einem langen Flug zu erholen; man fühlt sich sofort zu Hause. Im Schatten des Zitrusbaums ist das Frühstück ein Genuss. Der Fußweg zur Haltestelle des kostenlosen Stadtbusses ist ebenso kurz wie zu Restaurants und Läden. Das Haus ist hell und geräumig, alle Einrichtungen funktionieren, und für die ersten Mahlzeiten ist gesorgt. Man fühlt sich bestens aufgehoben. Terris Haus ist meine erste Wahl für Perth.
About the Host, Terri
Hi I'm Terri. I was born in Melbourne, lived in Sydney for 15years and now find myself living in Perth.
I have travelled and worked all over Australia - from nursing in Melbourne, prawn trawlers off the Queensland coast and carpentry in Sydney for 15 years. Now I'm part of the mining industry here in Perth.
I love music, and enjoy keeping up with the new sounds of the local indie bands and don't mind a bit of country influence (more Dolly than Kenny).
Mostly, I enjoy pottering in my backyard tool-shed, and love creating "found object assemblages / sculptures" - quite a few of which are hanging on the walls of my house. Also, I designed and built the deck in my backyard - its great for sitting outside and having a beer as the sun goes down.
I have traveled to Paris, Spain and Portugal, Dubai, Philippines and lots around Australia and hope to spend more time doing this in the future.
