The Space

Welcome to our home in Manning, a suburb about 8kms south of Perth city centre. We offer a private room with a comfortable queen size bed and private bathroom and toilet. You have use of the pool and the garden. Continental breakfast is provided. We can provide information about Perth and places to visit and things to do.

Bus to the city is a 2 minute walk. Canning Bridge train station is a 20 minute walk or take the bus to the station. At Canning Bridge you can connect to buses to Fremantle and elsewhere and trains to Mandurah or the city (and beyond). If you have a car, we are close to the freeway to the city or down south and Canning Highway to take you to Fremantle. We are only a few minutes from Curtin University.

There is a small supermarket just a 5 minute walk down the street plus a café, fruit shop, butcher, newsagent, liquor store and pharmacy. A larger shopping centre with supermarkets, post-office, bakery and many dine-in and take-away restaurants and fast food stores is about a 20 minute walk or 5 minutes on the bus. There is a great café/coffee shop serving light meals and pizzas a couple of blocks away.

If you have a car there is parking in our driveway behind a security gate. Free Wi-Fi.

We are not a five-star hotel but we are sure you will find our home a welcoming and relaxing place to stay while you enjoy the many sights and activities of Perth and its surrounds. Come home to our quiet sanctuary after a busy day of playing tourist or conducting business.

Check-in (from 2.00pm) and check-out (by 11.00am) times are negotiable depending on availability of the room. We are also open to stays of longer than 7 nights. Just ask.

  • Enjoyed my stay, I was very comfortable in a very clean and tastefully decorated house.
    Allan &Pär-Johan are very friendly and welcoming hosts. Highly recommend, looking forward staying again.

  • The room was pleasant, and it was great having our own bathroom and it was really almost brand new. The location was convenient, but we drove so it was easy getting around. We were out most of the time and barely had any time to interact with Par-Johan and Allan. However, we were there during Summer, and it did get kind of warm. Although they had central air-conditioning, it wasn't warm enough for that to be turned on but yet it wasn't really cool enough to sleep comfortably. So it would have been great to have a fan for those borderline Summer nights.

    Response from Allan & Pär-Johan:

    Sorry if you found it too warm. You should have asked. There is a fan available. Cheers

  • My partner and I enjoyed our stay in Allan and Pär-Johan's beautiful home. Breakfast by the pool and abundant garden was lovely. And the bathroom is super stylish and clean. Thank you for opening your home to us. It was so nice to meet you both. Bec & Yuri

  • After a long flight it was great to arrive in Perth at the Goody House B&B. It is located in a nice and quiet neighbourhood of Perth. Our hosts Allan and Pär-Johan were wonderful. They took great care of us and made us feel very welcome. The room and bathroom were spotless and very comfortable. The poolside breakfast was also memorable. We would definitely recommend this little oasis to anyone looking for a quiet and friendly place to stay in Perth!

  • Very comfortable accomodation.
    Allan and Par-Johan are superb hosts!
    We stayed a week in their house and it was like being in our own home.
    The breakfasts in their garden were unforgettable!!!

  • They have a really beautiful home in a quiet neighborhood. We really enjoyed our stay with Allan and Pär-Johan. They are both lovely people and they made our stay really enjoyable.
    Totally agree with the sentence "mi casa Es Su casa" gracias!

  • A lovely restful spot in the suburbs! Beautiful house, and exceptional hospitality from Allan and Pär-Johan. Just perfect for recovering from jetlag at the beginning of an Australia trip!
    Although it's a little way out of the centre of town, it's easy to get to the CBD with frequent buses running just round the corner.

    I had a lovely time, thanks Allan and Pär-Johan!

  • I stayed 4 nights with Allan and Pär-Johan and enjoyed my stay very much indeed. I very highly recommend this as a place to stay. The large bedroom is very nice, with a very comfortable bed, wardrobe, and small desk. It is at the front of the house but very quiet. There is a private bathroom that is not ensuite but is right next to your bedroom. This is a wonderful bathroom, very clean and newly fitted out with an excellent shower. Very nice towels were provided. Good breakfast that I ate sitting out in the back garden listening to the native birds. Public transport is excellent, including train to Mandurah, bus to Perth and to Fremantle, and very easy to use. The neighbourhood felt very safe to walk around in and explore, and is very quiet. I felt very safe here, as a female travelling alone. Free wifi that I had no problems with. Hosts are both very friendly, open and interesting people, and both very genuine. I enjoyed the company of them both. Overall I rate this as an excellent experience. I will definitely stay here again when next visiting Perth, and I did regret not being able to stay for longer.

  • We chose this B&B after reading all its good reviews, all entirely justified. We enjoyed our 6 day stay and the company of Par-Johan and Allan (who went away on business a day after we arrived) and will most certainly want to stay again when visiting the daughter who has just moved to Perth. A very pleasant and comfortable home with born hosts. All the best to both of them!

  • Boendet var precis som enligt beskrivning, rent och fräscht och ett trevligt värdpar som serverade en bra frukost vid den tidpunkt man önskade (mellan kl 07-10). Det var trevligt att ha tillgång till pool och bra wifi. Man ska dock vara medveten om att man verkligen bor "hemma hos"/tillsammans med värdparet och att det bara är ditt sovrum och toaletten som du har för dig själv. Värdparet är hjälpsamma och tillmötesgående, rekommenderas!

About
Semi-retired couple - university academic & language teacher. We enjoy travelling and meeting new people. We have travelled a lot of the world and lived in Sweden, Australia and the USA. We especially enjoy summer afternoons in the back garden, lazing by the pool, having a glass of wine and enjoying the company of friends, new and old. I am passionate about social justice and ask that our guests be respectful and share in the benefits that come from knowing all people, embracing those things that make us different and unique. Pär-Johan speaks Swedish fluently (he is Swedish!), a little German and a little Esperanto. I speak English and remember a few words of French from school days. If you wish to know anything more, please do not hesitate to ask.
