A quiet place to stay in a great location with everything you need for a comfortable stay. The hosts are very accommodating and respectful of privacy. I would definitely stay here again.

We had a lovely stay in Cris & Jason's cottage. It sits in the back of their property, with private access from the driveway and separate access to the backyard. It was very quiet with nothing but the chirping of birds waking you up in the morning. The neighbourhood is cute with a few cafes & restaurants, a corner store, and some fashion stores. The place is spotless, spacious, and smartly decorated with everything you need for a short or extended stay. Cris & Jason are lovely, and we would love to stay with them again when next back in Freo.

Jason and Christina were perfect hosts, helpful and friendly but respected our privacy and were there if we needed them.

Our first experience with Airbnb was an absolute delight. Jason & Cristina were perfect hosts. They made us feel very welcome. Their garden studio is exactly as described on the website, if not better. It has a very welcoming feel to it. The gardens are beautiful and well looked after. The neighbourhood is very friendly and everything is close by. We were very happy to stay and sad to leave. It felt like home away from home. Thank you Cristina & Jason

We were relocating from the USA to Perth and chose this property for a long term stay (1 month) based on the pictures we saw on AirBnB. Once we arrived, we determined the pictures were updated and did not accurately reflect the correct state of the studio, and clearly was not suited for long term rental. The studio is the size of a single carport with a tiny kitchen and bathroom; the porch, kitchen and bathroom are as depicted in the AirBnB photos. The bed is a twin bed with a faded blue printed bedspread, not the crisp white comforter reflected in the AirBnB photos. There were no cushions on the sofa (we had to use the pillows from the bed on the sofa). The towels were old and well used. The room has a gabled wood roof with a lot of cobwebs and dust. There were some electric globes missing we replaced ourselves using the box of globes in the kitchen. The kitchen faucet was not sealed on the countertop, so it lifted off each time it was used. The bathroom and kitchen portion of the studio sits in the patio, which means if the owners are entertaining in the patio, they might as well be in the toilet/kitchen. The washing machine is located in the kitchen and is to be shared with the owners!! The shared patio and the porch of the studio has plenty of plant debris – during our month stay the parents of the owners cleaned up the debris from the bougainvillea bush once. We were grateful because at night large cockroaches came out to play. The wireless internet connection kept dropping off for the first week, however, Jason managed to fix the problem just in time for my online university exams. The quality of water at the studio was of concern – the chrome on the shower enclosure was peeling away at astonishing speed. If a drop spilt on the floorboards, it left a white salt stain!!! We did learn one lesson from this stay – we will now ask owners of all future properties we rent to confirm whether their place looks exactly as pictured.

Response from Cristina & Jason:
It's a shame there was no communication from Calvin about any of these issues during his stay, which was quite unfortunate, as we could have addressed each. 1. Yes, the studio has been updated. We have added a ceiling fan and we rotate the linen, so if Calvin had asked, we would have been more than happy to supply him the white doona cover rather than the pastel one, and also plenty of sofa cushions and any extra soft furnishings. The photos have been taken by an Airbnb certified photographer and accurately represent the studio space. 2. Again, we rotate the towels and linen, and would have supplied brand new ones on request if he wasn't happy with the clean white ones he had. 3. The studio was spotless on Calvin's arrival. It is professionally cleaned, and we have had only compliments (as reviewed by fellow Airbnbers previously) about the state of the studio. After the 1 month stay, without cleaning, dust and cobwebs may occur. 4. The bed is a Queen size bed, not a 'twin bed'. 5. We will be taking a closer look at the kitchen faucet and chrome on the shower enclosure. It would be the surface enamel that would be the problem, not the 'quality of the water'. 6. The bathroom and kitchen do not 'sit in the patio' - that's an interesting one.... The studio is a stand-alone building, and if the tenants choose, they can open up the double doors which opens out into the undercover area for great natural light, or they can close the doors. It is quite clear in the (Airbnb certified) photos that anyone sitting under the patio is quite separated from the studio if the tenants inside wish. We entertained just once in this shared undercover area during Calvin's 4 week stay. 7. We almost always time it when there are no guests, however for Calvin's 4 week stay, we needed to use the washing machine, just once, after coordinating the best time to do this with him. 8. It is Autumn, and we have nature close by - a fragrant Frangipani and other plants do tend to drop leaves. The bouganvillea drops purple petals. The leaves were swept every few days (I have a feeling Calvin has come from apartment living direct from the U.S.), and additionally when we were away, by my parents. 9. The internet extender was occasionally dropping out for Calvin (who was highly communicative, out of character it now seems, about this concern), so we engaged an IT consultant to trouble shoot, and ultimately added another new extender, running three wi-fi signals down to the studio, covering all bases, which ensured there was no further issue. To sum up, it's disappointing Calvin chose not to bring up these points during his stay, rather, saving it to express these after he had left. The studio, and Airbnb for that matter, doesn't tend to suit everyone. I have a feeling, after reading his comments (some actually rather spurious), a stay in a hotel or serviced apartment may have suited this couple better.

Cristina and Jason's studio is fantastic! This might sound a bit over the top, yet it's true, there is nothing I didn't love about the place. The location is ideal and the garden beautiful. It's very clean and equipped with all you need and more. Jason and Cristina are very hospital and easy to communicate with. I will stay there again that's for sure (I didn't want to leave in the first place....). 10 out of 10.

Cristina & Jason User Profile

We are a Spanish-Australian couple. I (Cristina, Spanish) came to Australia for one year and got stuck in it after meeting Jason. Jason is from Fremantle but has been living abroad for many years until he settled in back in Freo.
We both live together in a house in East Fremantle close to the ocean. Both of us enjoy water sports, hiking, travelling and enjoying different cultures, food and drinks.
We are lucky that in Perth and Freo there's a big musical scene and many venues where to enjoy live music, as we both love music.
Regarding our style of travelling, it depends on how much time we have, but in general, we don't like to stress out and "tick" all the boxes, but the opposite: we like to relax, enjoy a meal, a drink with friends, a hike, a concert or whatever the destination has to offer us.
We have been using "airbnb" for a while and we think that it is a great idea, as we dislike going to impersonal hotels where you can't even open a window. We are respectful with other people's life, so we believe that this way of accommodation has given us the balance that we've been looking for.
Other than respectful to people, we try to be respectful to nature by saving water, recycling and being mindful of the lack of resources and its awful distribution in this planet.
