Homely House close to City!

House - Entire home/apt · Myrtle St, Perth, WA 6000, Australia

The Space

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.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • The perfect base to explore Perth! We travelled to Perth with our two small children and Terri's lovely house was perfect for us. With a lovely outside space and easy walking distance to local amenities, its ideal for those wanting a change from hotels and to really get into the Perth lifestyle. Also for those travelling with children the outside area not only provides a play space but also somewhere for the adults to unwind at the end of the day. We would stay here again in a heartbeat. Terri, the host could not have been more helpful and despite never meeting her we were made to feel incredibly at home and welcome. Thanks to Terri our trip to Perth could not have been better

  • Terri has a beautiful home right in the heart of the city. Her kitchen is fully equipped and rooms are cosy. We really loved the colours and decorations she choose for her place. Although we didn't get to meet Terri, she left us instructions on how to operate her home and even food!

  • We loved staying at Terri's place in North Perth. We were a group of four and the house was roomy and homely. Terri generously left some breakfast ingredients and the bed linen and towels were all immaculate. This is a great place from which to explore the city and a nice place to come home to after. The air conditioning is first class but we found that we didn't need it much as the house stayed cool most of the time. Stay here if you can

  • Terri was a wonderful and caring host even though we never met. The house is in a great location and is also well maintained. We felt at home immediately when we arrived. Next time we return to Perth we will definitely stay here.

  • We had an absolutely wonderful stay at Terri's house, which is not only very beautiful, very well equipped and clean but also very well situated for exploring the city. We found everything we needed (or more than that!) and felt very much at home. The outside deck is another big plus... Thank you very much, Terri (also for the things in the fridge)!

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Terri's house. The location was very convenient, as a base to visit the city, and north and south of the river. The house was very clean and Terri went to the extraordinary effort of providing some breakfast items as well as champagne. We would recommend this property and thank Terri for her hospitality.

  • Nice and clean house near Perth City! Getting to town was just a short drive. Terri was a great host, provided us with healthy breakfast and even a bottle of champagne! We love all the unique decorative art works around the house. We had no problem locating the house and parking our vehicle throughout our stay. Terri even provided us the use of her wifi. This house is highly recommended for travelers visiting Perth.

    December 2013
  • We had a great stay, the house was perfect for us! The bedrooms and living room are fully air conditioned which meant the kids and us slept beautifully even after a 38' day. Thanks Terri for leaving such a great selection of nibbles and breakfast food so we had something to eat after the long trip. The kids toys were an instant hit with my 4yr old too, kept her occupied while we got our bags in order. Would highly recommend to anyone, such a great deal.We had friends visit while we were there and said they would let their interstate friends know too as they were so impressed with the place. Big thank you Terri we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

  • This is a lovely character home, full of lovely things in the perfect spot for the City, Hyde Park, great Vietnamese food…. We felt instantly at home and were able to gather as a family before and after our daughter's wedding which took place quite close by. The garden 'deck' was perfect for a yoga session in the morning and dinner for six on a balmy night. The house is bright (unlike some older homes) and well laid out - the beds are comfortable and linen etc of great quality. We hope to return when we next have a reason to gather in Perth.

    November 2013
  • We absolutely loved our stay in Terri's beautiful home!

    The location is fantastic, about a 20 min walk to the city and a short walk to restaurants (some great Vietnamese ones included) and shops. There is a gorgeous big park about a two minute walk away.

    The house itself is perfect, it's beautifully decorated, the beds were extremely comfortable, heaps of towels and linen, the kitchen is great - useful condiments etc in the pantry (a real bonus), the outdoor area is fantastic - great for entertaining or relaxing. 5 Star!

    All in all we just loved it and felt very lucky that we made the choice to stay here rather than any of the other options. We had a few family and friends come over (as we were all in Perth for my brothers wedding) and they were all so impressed with the house (and a little jealous that they weren't staying there I reckon ;) ).

    Terri was easy and nice to communicate with. Thanks again Terri, you made out holiday in Perth even better :)

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.
