Perth - relaxing home & garden
We are a friendly and well-travelled couple who enjoy meeting people and welcome singles and couples from Australia and abroad to our home in Perth.
Our B&B is in a quiet and relaxing part of Perth.
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 great café/coffee shop serving light meals and pizzas a couple of blocks away.

About the Host, Allan & Pär-Johan
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.
