About this listing
Amazing semi detached 2 storey villa with huge ocean views.
The beach is through the park that you see in pictures and across the road.
Hillaries Marina is 5 minutes walking distance away - Western Australia's most highly visited area. Trendy cafes and restaurants all walking distance.
This villa sits high on a hill and has panoramic views. Kitchen boasts high quality appliances so you can cook with ease while watching the boats sail by. 50"flat screen TV .
Bedroom, takes up whole of downstairs including a beautiful bathroom and compact laundry. Double sofa bed is also in this area that can sleep another two people.
Large balcony where you can feel a part of the ocean. There is a BBQ here for quick and easy meals. You won't want to leave - apart from a dip in the ocean and a stroll to Hillaries Marina.
Surrounded by luxury homes. An excellent area.
Bus stop is 30 metres away where you can catch bus directly to train station.
Luxury without breaking the bank. Treat yourself.
Guests have access to the entire villa.
Interaction with Guests
I interact with the guests whenever they wish to have interaction - for whatever reason.
The neighbourhood is quiet, safe and friendly. Surrounded by greenery from the park and blue ocean, it doesn't get any better than that.
There is a bus stop on the corner - 50 metres away, that takes you to the train station. From there you can go into the city or continue down to the south of Perth eg Mandurah.
Hillarys is a 5 minute walk along the beach or along the path - you can see it from the villa. Cafes (organic included) are just through the park - other choices are at Hillarys Marina where there are lots of cafes, restaurants and all sorts of other shops.
We expect our guests to be considerate of neighbours and to behave in an acceptable manner. Loud music is not tolerated.
We also expect people to take good care of the property. Smoking is not permitted on the premises.
Kathy was warm and welcoming both before and when we arrived. She was flexible on our check in time and showed us through the apartment before giving us space to get settled. She helped us with some ideas for restaurants close by as well. The apartment was very nicely appointed and we had everything we needed. We were happily surprised to find supplies for a nice continental breakfast in the fridge. The location is very convenient to the Hillary's Marina and was perfect for us while we visited our family nearby.
Kathy is a wonderful host!! Always quick to answer any query I had but never intrusive! I really enjoyed staying at her lovely house in Sorrento - it's very spacious and the view from the living room is spectacular - AMAZING sunsets & views of the ocean!! This property has everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay - I highly recommend it! Thanks for all of your help Kathy, I really appreciated it!!
This is a great place to stay especially if you want to relax by the beach. There are a couple of excellent places to eat nearby serving great breakfasts especially on a Sunday morning where you can chill till lunchtime! Close to Hillarys Quay. And did I mention the subsets, spectacular views out to the Indian Ocean. Hosts were fantastic made sure we settled in and even accommodated our late check out- couldn't ask for more.
We're a local business that has used Kathy's apartment for quite some time. She has been fantastic to us and so flexible when we have been asking for last second changes and help.
The area is great and the unit is spacious. I can't think of any negatives.
Thanks for all your help Kathy and hopefully will catch up again sometime in the future.
We stayed for 1 week over the Christmas period. Kathy was there to greet us when we arrived and showed us around the beautiful apartment so we knew where everything was. She gave us some useful tips on where to find places in the area too. She had left us some essential groceries as well as some not so essential treats. This was a lovely gesture and given that we arrived late on a Sunday it was a great help to us. Kathy had guests on Christmas Day and she popped by later in the day to give us some food she had left over which was delicious.
The listing was very accurate. The apartment is beautifully presented and the photos show exactly what you can expect. We are a family of 3 with a 3 year old child and the apartment was perfect for our needs. It was great to have the additional single bed in the bedroom with a screen used to divide the large room into two areas.
The only downside for us was that the bathroom is directly next to the single bed so we had to be very quiet when using it when our daughter was asleep. Also the open plan layout of the apartment means that noise travels from upstairs into the bedroom downstairs. It didn't cause us too much of a problem though.
We loved the neighbourhood. There are many lovely beaches in and around Sorrento as well as restaurants, shopping centres etc. There are also plenty of attractions in the area to keep you busy. It is a very peaceful neighbourhood yet only a short drive from the city and airport.
All in all we really enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to recommend the property. We'd happily come back every year if we could!
Kathy and Ross were two very friendly, helpful, and amicable hosts. It was a great pleasure to meet them. The apartment was as described on airbnb: open and bright space, well equipped, and with a fantastic view of the beach and the ocean. The neighborhood was nice and quite. The coast line was impressing. Shopping facilities are a little bit further away. So one needs a car. I had a wonderful time in Kathy's and Ross's apartment and I hope I will be able to visit them again some day!
Kathy was extremely welcoming and kind, the apartment has beautiful views and perfectly clean.
