The Space"Cooringa" - 1897.
Welcome to the historic suburb of Claremont, part of Perth's exclusive western suburbs surrounded by prestigious homes and recreation grounds.
Our accommodation is detached from our heritage listed historic home and comprises of an open plan 75sqm two storey self contained, studio/loft with secure garage parking, separate bathroom, kitchenette and private lane way access, surrounded by landscaped gardens and a 100m stroll to the Swan River.

We are located a one minute walk from the Swan River foreshore, home to the popular Mrs Herbert's Park & Freshwater Bay museum. Beautiful views of water activity, yachts, twinkling lights and an abundance of bird life. Many residents swim here each morning or kayak and fishing from the jetty both day and night is also popular.
There are quality restaurants, cafés, boutiques, supermarkets, sporting grounds and parks all within walking distance as well as a bus stop right at our back door.
A five minute drive will see you arriving at Cottesloe Beach, Kings Park or shopping at Claremont Quarter & Subiaco.
Our property, "Cooringa", is positioned between Perth and Fremantle so you are a short drive from anywhere you want to explore. You won't find a better location to base yourself on your Perth visit. You're entirely self contained and have privacy to come and go as you please. It's tucked away nicely that if you didn't want to be found, you wouldn't be!
Remote garage parking is on the ground level with a private access door leading to a bathroom (vanity, toilet, shower, hair dryer). We supply the loft with quality towelling and personal products such as shampoo, conditioner, soap and body lotion for your use which is Australian made with 100% organic botanical ingredients.
A stair case leads you to the second storey, open plan loft accommodation. Note there IS a handrail however it wasn't yet installed at time of photos being taken.

A dining suite for two overlooks the garden, pool and treetops and sits beside the kitchenette, equipped with sink, microwave, bar fridge and tea/coffee/toast facilities. There is a full sized fridge/freezer on the ground level & wardrobe with hanging space to use for any oversized supplies you may wish to bring with you.

It really is worth a stroll down to rivers edge, any time of the day or evening.
A honeymoon or romantic vacation? Let me know in advance for a few extra special touches.
We are a family home so you will likely hear some laughter from my three children on occasion if they're in the garden and they're always happy to stop for a chat if you poke your head in to say hello.
The accommodation is NOT suitable for wheelchairs or prams as it is two storey. Although we feel the loft is suitable for 2 people, we are more than happy to accommodate a baby and can organise use of a porta cot if required with 24 hours notice. Please keep in mind there is a staircase without safety gates, so this is at your own risk.

Your accommodation may also receive light housekeeping (linen change and general clean) once per fortnight for stays exceeding two weeks if you wish, by prior arrangement.
We believe our loft is pretty special and hope you do too. Our guests are important to us and many return time and time again. For some, it is their home away from home when they travel here regularly for business. We love seeing old faces.
