Excellent living conditions suited for families. Extremely child friendly with table games and 2 big screen TVs (so that my boys did not have to fight). Tip top condition. Thanks for being good hosts Shirley and Douglas. Will be back again. Glenn Lim
Stayed here for a week, last April. The place is centrally located between the city n fremantle. House is very clean n well maintained. Got all the things we need as if we live there. shirley n douglas r the best house managers in Oz!!! Thanks for a terrific stay!
This is our fourth stay with Shirley and Douglas'. This time, our family of 10 stayed at their newest property in the beautiful suburb of Winthrop. oh boy the location is just fantastic. This place is truly ideal for reunions of families or just want a superb place to stay in Perth. The house is a bargain compared with hotel accomodation.
This property is accurately described. There are 5 bedrooms which fits our big family. The house is huge with enough space for family members to move around without getting into each other's nerves.
1st room - master with Queen bed and ensuite.
2nd room - 2 singles
3rd room - 1 double bed that can fit 2 persons
4th room - 1 double bed for 2 persons
5th room - 2 double bed that can fit a family of 4 person with huge walk-in closet and connecting bathroom.
Bath and toilets
3 bathroom all equipped with hair dryers and 3 toilets.
The kids definitely enjoyed the gaming area which kept them occupied til late at night. There is even majong table for adults!
There's a free laptop and landline for guest's use. Internet WIFI is good and fast via NBN broadband. There are also plenty of travel brochures to make your Western Australian travels a breeze.
Living /lounge area
There are 2 lounge area for families to hangout.
The property can fit 2-3 cars easily. But be careful not to park on the lawn area as one can damage the built-in water reticulation system
Kitchen and dining area
Kitchen is fully equipped and dining can seat 8 persons.
There is a huge backyard where families can enjoy BBQ.
What I love about this property is there is laundry area for long term guests to do their laundry so that they can pack light. It is equipped with washing machine and dryer.
Shirley supplies starter packs (shampoo, toilet paper and etc) during our stay. But guests will have to refill themselves if it runs out which is ok as the rates charged is very reasonable.
The area is located in a peaceful suburb of Winthrop. It is central to everything yet quiet. Thus it is especially great for families with young children as there is very near a big running/playing field a stone throws away and away for big roads. There is a village shopping center nearby with a big IGA supermarket (where one can buy food and supplies), pharmacy, asian supermarket, saloon, restaurants and etc just 5 minutes drive away. For bigger shopping mall, Garden City shopping mall and Myree/Melville shopping center (along Leach Highway) are only minutes drive away. Fremantle is not too far away too. What we enjoyed the most though is the daily stroll to the huge Winthrop park. It is just 2 houses away from the park!
Overall, we very much enjoyed our stay (imagine it's our 4th stay at Shirley's and Douglas' property) and highly recommend anyone to book and stay with them.
