A short walk from the Botanic Gardens and a few minutes further to the National Wine Centre/North Terrace this cute cottage is ideally placed for those who want to be near enough to the city to walk (or ride back home) and still make use of their car if need be. Enjoy your coffee on the front verandah or out the back and listen to the gibbons from the zoo nearby (n.b. this is never early morning)
Please note that this is an original 1850's workers cottage which I've renovated myself.
No oven

The space

Feel free to use anything in the house. If there's anything specifically you need let me know and I'll see what I can do. The designer sofa bed transforms into a king sized bed or 2 separate singles. The other sofa bed changes into a double. (please advise beforehand if these need to be used) There is (tight) undercover parking for 2 cars off street and free street parking is also generally available as well.
The fireplace works and guests can buy firewood from the service station up the road or else from the bunnings nearby. I may also be able to supply some at cost.

Guest access

Guests have access to the whole place including a back yard and front porch. Guests are permitted to smoke on the front verandah or else in the back yard.

Interaction with guests

I am always available to provide tips on where to eat, what to do, where to shop and what to see and do depending on the day, time of year.

Other things to note

Currently they are doing roadworks on Hackney Road to improve the Obahn. This can result in traffic delays during peak hours. It is easily possible to use alternate routes.

We loved the space of the accommodation. Lots of room to put our shopping without feeling cluttered! The nearness of public transport was an added bonus.

Great house in a safe quiet location. Roy was very welcoming and helpful and communicated throughout the stay whenever needed. I had a very relaxing weekend stay but would have been comfortable to stay longer.

Roy User ProfileRoy is a superhost.

I have lived and worked in many countries around the world and am very glad to finally have my own home which others can use to explore this wonderful little city.
My passion is travel and from the knowledge gained about what I need when traveling I hope to provide guests with a care free stay. (Based firstly on safety, comfort, cleanliness and price) If you need any help or have any questions don't hesitate to contact me and I'll endeavor to solve it for you.
