Lonely Planet has listed Maylands as Perth’s "next big thing" with a definite foodie buzz around the neighbourhood, particularly among the eating and drinking spots huddled on Whatley Crescent.
The apartment is located right above the Maylands café strip which has plenty of fantastic cafes and restuaruants, as well as handy amenities such as a bank, post office, bottle shop, chemist, newsagent and doctor. Two supermarkets (Coles and IGA) are only a short 300m walk away.
I have lived in the area for many years and can highly recommend:
- Mrs S for delicious breakfast – try the cornbread!
- Milkd for great coffee
- Sherbet for cute and delicous cakes
- Ploy Thai for amazingly cheap Thai food (plus its free BYO)
- Swallow for drinks in a boutique wine bar with live music many nights.
You will also be located:
- 15 mins drive from Perth international airport;
- 11 mins drive from Perth domestic airport;
- 3 mins drive from Mercy Hospital (St John of God Hospital Mt Lawley);
- 13 mins drive from the Swan Valley;
- 30 mins drive to Fremantle;
- 14 mins drive from Kings Park;
- 7 mins drive from Edith Cowan University (ECU) Mt Lawley; and
- 20 mins drive from Curtin University Bentley.
Maylands was one of the first areas to be settled, so it is filled with heritage listed buildings and character. Maylands has excellent facilities with a gym, library and park located right across the road. During summer the park hosts night markets with amazing food and stalls. If you want to go for a run (or a gentle walk!) the river is only 1 km away.
Public transport around the apartment is readily available and very easy. Maylands train station is located only 250m away on Whatley Crescent. The train station is only five stops (12 mins) from Perth city on the Midland train line, making it a central location.
Buses run from Guildford Road and Eight Avenue (bus route 41), with the closest bus stop only 90m away. Bus timetables are provided in the apartment for easy planning and are also available on the Transperth website.
A taxi rank is located 50m from the apartment on Eighth Avenue. There are always plenty of taxis available.
Other things to note
The road and railway noise is low and nobody notices it, but I would advise delicate sleepers to be aware of it before booking.
The apartment will accomodate children but it is not "childproof" - for example it has a glass coffee table and has a balcony. A travel cot, a high chair and baby bath are available upon request. Please let me know when you book if you need any of these things.
To ensure that you enjoy your stay to the fullest extent, I kindly request that a few house rules are followed:
Children: The apartment will accomodate infants and children of any age but it is not "childproof" - for example it has a glass coffee table and has a balcony.
Smoking: Please do not smoke in the apartment, including on the balcony.
Noise restrictions: Please respect that the building is home to other residents and noise restrictions do apply. Loud music is not permitted late at night.
Toilet: Please do not flush any foreign objects (sanitary items) down the toilet as this may cause blockages.
Kitchen: Please wash and dry all dishes before you leave. Leaving dirty dishes will incur an extra cleaning fee. Don't worry, there is a dishwasher that does both for you!
Parties: I ask that the apartment not be used for parties please. There are plenty of venues a stone's throw from the apartment that would be suitable.
Late check-out & check-in: The apartment is generally booked every night. As I need time to clean the apartment between the guests I host I am generally unable to offer a later check-out than 10am or an earlier check-in than 2pm.
Cancel up to 7 days before your trip and get a 50% refund plus service fees back.
Hi there. I'm originally from the UK but have been living in Perth since I was 6. What I love about Perth is that it is has the perfect weather, is full of friendly people and there are endless things to do. If you are looking for great Perth accommodation, please contact me for more details.
I love to travel and have an endless list of countries that I’d like to visit. I’ve stayed in some amazing Airbnb places overseas and am now lucky enough to host people in my own home and beloved city. I think that Maylands is an amazing area to stay and I hope you will too!
I love watching movies (I’m slowly making my way through the list of Oscar winners from every year) and visiting Perth’s beautiful beaches, especially at sunset. I am an avid music lover, secretly love a good dad joke, hate cucumber and make the best two minute noodles in the world!
