The SpaceWelcome to The Guest Room! Your room is a semi self-contained flat located on the lower floor of our home. It is large and modern - a comfortable space that has the feel of a hotel room.
WHO SHOULD VISIT?
The Guest Room's amenities and convenient location makes it a fantastic base for anyone visiting Perth including:

- new residents to Perth who need temporary accommodation prior to renting/buying their own place;
- business people in Perth for work;

The room is ideal for singles or couples. We can also accommodate those travelling with a small child as the room is large enough to put down a small mattress or portacot should it be required.

The kitchenette is ideal for small-scale self catering such as making tea/coffee, continental style breakfasts, re-heating food and the preparation & storage of picnic food such as salads, sandwiches & snacks….perfect if you'd like to take food from home when you're out and about exploring!
Grocery supplies can be obtained from a choice of supermarkets only a short 5-10 minute walk away.
We provide you with clean towels, sheets, pillows and basic bathroom items free of charge. If you are staying for longer than a week we can organise fresh linen for you. Longer term guests may also organise to borrow our washing machine to do a small load of washing if required.
We welcome you by stocking the pantry and fridge with some breakfast provisions to get you started and keep you going for a day or two. Once you book in, feel free to let us know your continental breakfast preferences eg cereal, fruit, bread, juice, milk etc and we will endeavour to stock up accordingly.

From $475 per week for couples
If you require anything additional, let us know before you arrive and if possible, we will organise that for you. Guest AccessGuests have private access to the flat and all the amenities within. The Guest Room entry is accessed via the carport shelter located at the front of the property. Interaction with GuestsThe owners live on the top floor of the house, connected to The Guest Room by an internal spiral staircase that will remain locked during your stay to ensure your complete privacy. The entrance to the main house is up the stairs to the left of the carport.
Upon arrival, we will welcome you and settle you in, making sure you have all everything you need.
We have great local knowledge of restaurants, wine bars, pubs, cafes, beaches, quirky out of the way gift shops, kid friendly spaces, parks and many other Perth attractions that we would love to share with you.
We are an active family, so are out and about ourselves, much of the time, but for the duration of your stay we will always endeavour to provide advice in person, if not by phone, should you need it. The NeighborhoodWe love living in Mount Hawthorn!
Mt Hawthorn is a popular, cosmopolitan area with all the facilities you need within easy walking distance.
In addition, its central location means easy access to Perth's major attractions both north and south of the city centre.
It's close enough to Perth city (about 4km) to give it an inner city urban edge but also far enough away for peace and quiet too, especially when sleeping at night. The area is safe and friendly and there are parks nearby.
Facilities within a short (5 -10 minute) walking distance include more than 8 restaurants, 7 cafes, 5 pubs/wine bars, parks, post office, supermarkets, bakeries, liquor stores, gift & clothes shops, newsagent & dry cleaner.
Start your day with a great coffee from Yelo or Humblebee, pick up some delicious sourdough bread and snacks on your way through from local provedore, New Norcia Bakery and finish with a delicious gourmet pizza at our local BYO pizza joint, Neighborhood Pizza.
More sophisticated dining options your preference? Let us book you into Halu (Japanese Western Tapas), a 5 minute walk away, or Divido a lovely European influenced diner. Pop into 'Budburst' wine bar for some intimate post dinner drinks or soak up the atmosphere of the crowd and maybe a live band or televised football match at our local pub, 'The Paddington Alehouse'.
Alternatively if you're here on a Friday night, walk up the road (10 mins), and through the telephone box to experience one of Perth's best kept music venue secrets, The Jazz Cellar. Getting AroundThe domestic airport is about 15-20 minutes drive away and the international airport about 25-30 minutes.
Our home is centrally located, about 4km north west of Perth city. It is a very convenient location for access to all Perth's main attractions.
In addition, fantastic restaurants, bars and theatres are close by in the urban villages (cafe strips) of North Perth, Leederville and Mount Lawley. There is also Northbridge which is a little further at only 3km. Perth beaches are only 9km away.
We have a couple of bus stops 100 -150 metres from The Guest Room. The 403 bus runs regularly during the day and will take you about 10 minutes to get to the centre of Perth.
You can also access the Perth city centre from one of the many bus stops along Scarborough Beach Road. (10 minute bus trip). Buses travelling the other way on Scarborough Beach Road will get you to Scarborough Beach in about 20 minutes.
Once in the city centre you can travel around using the free CAT buses and explore many tourist attractions including the Cultural Centre in Northbridge (Art Gallery of WA, State Theatre Centre, PICA & Western Australian Museum), the Perth Mint, Bell Tower, Kings Park and Swan River. Fremantle is a 30 minute train ride from the city.
Leederville is a 20 minute walk or 5 minute walk & 3 minute bus ride down from The Guest Room and has tons of shops, bars, restaurants, a train station and a free green CAT bus to the City.
We can organise timetables for you and would be happy to show you how to use the public transport system.
Free street parking within 30m of The Guest Room is available for those with their own car.
The Guest Room entry is accessed via our carport shelter located at the front of the property. We park our cars under the carport so ask that those travelling by car park please utilise the free street parking with the exception of unloading or loading your vehicle when you arrive and depart.
