About this listing
Myrtle Street is a cul-de-sac with a community atmosphere.
Just 20 min walk to the city centre, 15mins to Beaufort St Cafes and boutique stores and 10min walk 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. Many guests say the photos don't do it justice!
My charming timber cottage is quiet, clean and fresh, with polished floor boards and reverse-cycle ducted air-conditioning so never too hot or too cold.
The kitchen has all the mod cons plus the usual requirements - pots, plates, cutlery, microwave, sandwich maker etc. if you wish to also has a great coffee machine for that morning fix.
The bathroom is small but functional - 2nd toilet out the back. Towels and linen are provided.
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. 15 mins 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 GEM! It 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.
Please use the rubbish bins in the front yard and tie off bags particularly for food scraps, nappies etc so they don't spill into the bin as they can get smelly and 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. 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

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.
