“Stunning design in an ideal location- can't be beaten” - 5 of 5 stars By Jennifer
We choose this rental as the photos sold it to us and they don't even show it off to it's true magnificence We were keen to get the feeling of being outdoors by the water with the luxury of being indoors ….we were grateful to have somewhere so amazing and still affordable
Justin was an amazing host and gave lots of perfect hints and tips along the way and nothing was ever too much to ask. We borrowed his bikes and spent the four days travelling between Cottesloe/North Fremantle and South Fremantle with ease- it's the perfect city to cycle in and nowhere is more than 15 mins away.
Leighton beach was also the nicest in the area and conveniently only a 5 min walk- Justin also told us about a secluded beach by the river which was perfect Food in the local area is outstanding- try Bread in Common in Fremantle and Propeller in North Fremantle which were our favourites so much so that we went to both for breakfast and dinner. Would thoroughly recommend this place to anyone and you can't beat the location."
“You cannot find a second place like this in Perth” - 5 of 5 stars By Joy
It is looks unreal. When I saw the ads for this place, I hesitated and was wondering, "this is cannot be real. Is this a scam?” Now I am writing my first Trip Advisor review. In some cases, it is not you who has chosen the place but the place has chosen you. As an obsessed world traveler, this place is everything I am looking for. The architecture style of this place is spectacular. The whole house is a designer piece like a grand glass piano. The glass window frames the Perth blue sky and white clouds like a live postcard. You may observe the boats, birds and flowing sky.
Location, Location I did jogging, cycling and swimming in front of the Home, very private beach and bike track, sometimes you even can see dolphins. 10 mins drive to Hippie Fremantle with the best bars, bookshops in Perth. You also can take bus and train to Yuppie Subiaco and the city. 10 mins walk to a hidden food and café street at Vic Street. The owner who started this project is a very helpful and multicultural professional, and his dog Indi is adorable. I don't feel like sharing this, but I will double my happiness to share my experience
