About this listing

Spacious room with ensuite for your exclusive use. This character home offers you a relaxing lounge with open fire and tranquil outside area. Fun loving, sociable brother and sister duo will help you enjoy either peaceful privacy or mass amusement!

The space

You’ll be hard pressed not to enjoy your stay in Bayswater, a beautiful, central suburb of Perth. This newly renovated character home offers you a relaxing lounge with open fire and tranquil outside entertaining area, ready for whatever your holidaying pleasures may be. You’ll be welcomed openly and warmly during your stay.

Our home is the second on a large privately owned block and has recently been renovated to a functional 3 x 3. Your beautifully decorated room contains a double bed comfortably sleeping 2 guests, quality linen, walk-in wardrobe, ceiling fan and heater and the ensuite is kitted with a toilet, basin, large mirror and shower.

To make yourself feel at home, away from home, you’re invited to use the common areas; lounge, dining, kitchen, laundry and outside entertaining area, all of which contain the necessary ‘mod cons’ to make your stay a comfortable one. The lounge has an open fire place which can be used in the cooler months for added comfort and that holiday feel. Additionally, bi-fold doors in the dining area bring the outside in, or the inside out, when looking to relax over a meal in the warmer months. Enjoy a drink and unwind after your days activities surrounded by everyday comforts.

Guest access

Guests have access to the whole house and amenities, excluding only the two bedrooms occupied by house residents. The kitchen is fully equipped for you to prepare meals should you wish and continental breakfast supplies (cereal, bread, tea, coffee, milk) will be available to you at all times and is included in the cost of the room. You’re welcome to use additional kitchen basics such as oils, spices, flour, and pasta. A small tip covering what you have used would be appreciated though not expected.

The laundry is also fully functional with laundry detergent, top loader washer and outside clothes line which is available to you should your stay require it.

Unlimited WIFI is available for guest use, login details are provided upon check-in.

As we appreciate your travel schedule won’t often parallel our work schedules, check-in and check-out times are fully flexible. Details for both will be provided upon confirmation of booking.

Interaction with guests

We are a relaxed family and we enjoy offering our space to travellers. Your comfort is our main concern and as such your privacy is respected at all times. If you are looking to get more out of your holiday both of us are very approachable, social and enjoy speaking with guests to get to know their traveling interests and recommending places to visit. Depending on our plans we will often invite you to join us on outings with friends and family. Guests are welcome to relax with us around the home at all times however, if you prefer your privacy your room is spacious and light allowing you to read and/or rest whenever you like.

Our home is modest and old fashioned in its design in that rooms run off from a centralised kitchen; as such we may see each other often outside working hours and personal schedules. Having said that, Eric works full time, Monday to Friday so is usually only around the home in the evenings and over the weekend. Kate also works full time and has quite a busy schedule with study and training commitments before and after business hours but is most often than not around for evening meals. Noise will be kept to a minimum as we go about our morning and evening routines wherever possible. Your room is quite far from the front door and kitchen however so we anticipate noise levels to be of little concern.

Kate enjoys entertaining friends and family over dinner when time permits and likes to hold small gatherings which you will be invited to join. You’ll be advised at the time of booking if a dinner is scheduled so you’re aware in advance. Very rarely will a dinner be scheduled after you’ve already confirmed your booking, however if it were we would always seek your endorsement to avoid any inconvenience.

Regular evening meals can be a bit haphazard as we both try and juggle differing work/life schedules but if we’re sitting down to dinner together guests are always welcome to join and share their stories over the meal and a glass of wine or beer.

We have a pet cat, Mr Darcy, who can be (as his name suggests) ‘pretentious and aloof’ at times but very friendly. You can catch him lounging outside in the sun… most of the day.

The host is very friendly, funny and easy to communicate with. It is very pleasure to stay for a week because it is located near to supermarket especially 24/7 IGA (just a few min of drive) and petrol station. Also, it is near to airport and we don't have to rush or leave too early. Kitchen is well-equipped and we can enjoy cooking! We absolutely love playing with her chubby housemate; the cat.

Highly recommend this place if you looking for long stay in Perth. It was very awesome to stay within Kate's bnb because it's very comfortable and it feels like home.

Great location for the airport and car rental. Room with ensuite is perfect. Plenty of information on Perth outside the room. Easy check in with key box if host isn't in. Managed to catch up with Kate over great breakfast. Would definitely recommend and return! Thanks again.

Kate is a Very friendly and sweet host ever I met! The room is clean and comfortable with a private washroom. Thanks Kate for being a great host and if we come Perth again, we will stay her home again for sure.

Kate's place is in a lovely quiet neighbourhood that feels really safe. It was one of the most friendly, relaxed and welcoming Airbnb stays that I have had :) The bed was really comfy and I loved that there was a bathroom just for me! Great value and great location. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this Airbnb and I hope to stay again sometime. Thanks Kate & Eric!

Kate User ProfileKate is a superhost.

My name is Kate; I am a Perth local and have lived here full time for 10 years, before that spending time in country WA. I’m very laid back, easy going and enjoy a challenge, an adventure seeker at heart. I love opportunities to try new things and weekends are often spent experimenting with a new creative outlet. I’m an active person and like to keep fit by running, cycling, swimming, boxing, playing soccer and basically any other activity I can get my hands on!

I enjoy reading and cooking for friends and I love meeting new people, that’s the best thing about travelling! I’m looking forward to the people I’ll meet while hosting and the ways I can help people during their travels, whether that be to tell them about local events, show them the sites or simply help them reset by enjoying a quiet weekend away, undisturbed.
