Great location
90% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Our home is in easy walking distance to the main street of Albany and we provide a private upstairs space with a large bedroom that can be configured to have a king bed or 2 single beds. There is a private bathroom with a bath, kitchenette and living area with a smart TV. There is a private entrance through the downstairs laundry as well as off road parking. We live downstairs and are available to assist with helping make your stay in Albany as pleasurable as possible.

The space
Our home was originally built in about 1890 and consisted of 3 rooms and we have very recently restored this front section of the house to look more like the original cottage. We are opposite a Foundation Park, which is where the British flag was first raised in Western Australia.
In 2016 we completed a new extension on the back to make the home modern and comfortable.
The upstairs area has 3 bedrooms (one of which Airbnb guests use), a lounge area and kitchenette.
The bedroom has hanging and drawer space. The bed can either be a king or 2 singles. It is a light airy room with windows that have views of Princess Royal Harbour.
Their is underfloor heating in the bedroom and the bathroom. The bathroom has a large bath and the shower is over the bath. This is also a very light airy room.
The loungeroom has a smart tv, lounge chairs and a small dining table. There is a dimplex heater for extra heating if required. The windows facing south have views of Princess Royal Harbour.
The kitchenette is suitable for preparing simple meals and has a sink, microwave, small fridge, toaster, electric kettle and a small convection hotplate. There is crockery and cutlery as well tea, instant coffee, milk, oil, salt and pepper. There is a plunger for coffee but we do not supply the coffee.

Where you’ll be

Albany, Western Australia, Australia

We live in an historic section of Albany and there are many beautiful old houses nearby. Opposite is a lovely big park and we are only a very short distance to cafes, restaurants and tourist attractions. The Brig Amity is just at the end of the street running parallel, as well as the Residency Museum and Anzac Peace Park. We love being able to hear the occassional church bell, tug/ship/train horn, as well as the many birds. If you are lucky you may see a possum or bandicoot.
