Everything about this place is amazing. We booked the place for 8 people, but at the last moment, we had an additional person coming along. Even before getting to Perth, Kendra the landlord was super quick and efficient with her responses, and saw to it that we had enough space for our whole group to sleep comfortably. She sent check in information that was simple and even suggested if she could help us with some groceries as we were arriving late at night. Tripadvisor did mess up our booking as we didn't realise that our booking didn't include the cost for the extra people. We were initially very upset and nearly cancelled our booking (no thanks to the unresponsive team from Tripadvisor who never got back with any solution to their technical glitch) but we were glad that Kendra was very very accommodating and thankfully we decided to continue with our booking.
The house is beautiful! The three bedrooms are of very good size, and the deco is very tastefully furnished. We opened an extra sofa bed in the extra "fourth" room on the first floor which made it a little tight, but that was only because we added one extra person on our end. The bedding was comfortable and the large towels that were enough to keep us warm... because it got chilly, Kendra even set up for us electric blankets to keep us warm at night.
What i love about the house was how it was so well thought through - there's every thing you could possibly need such that you begin to think you're actually in your own home. It had a Nespresso coffee maker with a milk frother.... a toaster, an oven/microwave, a Dishwasher, washing machine, a seperate dryer... actually all the crockery, utensils cookware that enabled my mum to whip up a meal for 10 of us.
What i love also was that the location of this property is AMAZING! It's just 10 minutes by walk, 2 minutes drive to Garden City Mall which has everything you need. There was a supermarket, shops to keep everyone busy, and even a medical centre when my mum needed to see a Dr. Its about 15-20 minutes drive to town, and 15 minutes to Fremantle.
The only pity was the fact that we never got to try the pool and the outdoor BBQ pit as it was just too cold for us. But we are certain that should we ever be back in Perth, we'll definitely be back at Ambar Villa. Thank you Kendra for making your home ours in the 8 days we stayed there. And I'll say this... we'll be back soon! :)
Beautiful house ...we were 7 Adults and had ample room and found the layout of the house suitable as not many houses offer queen size beds in all the bedrooms.
The house is immaculate and I am a clean freak myself... beds were really comfortable and linen lovely ..kitchen had everything you need to cook with and in excellent condition. Nespreso coffee maker a real treat. The main bedroom is a slice of luxury as has large bathroom and the room is huge. We didn't use the outside area as bad storms but it would be a lovely place to have drinks weather permitting. its much closer to Fremantle and Cottesloe than it is to the city but we much preferred it found the city a bit boring once you have been there a couple of times. Lovely river walk just 10 min drive and lovely large upmarket shopping centre about 2 min drive. I would highly recommend staying here ..it is on a main road but inside don't really hear the noise not enough to be disturbed. Kendra was great to deal with nothing too hard for her and she was very professional and accommodating. My only suggestion is the bedroom downstairs is really set up as a study so it lacks warmth when set up as a bedroom and the fold out bed is really only suitable for one person ...Kendra tried to make it as cosy as possible but personally I would forget having it as a study and set it up as proper bedroom. There is a toilet and vanity that accommodates whoever is sleeping downstairs but they need to use upstairs to shower which didn't present a problem. Laundry is huge and immaculate. Beautiful house very luxurious and would defiantly stay here again. Well done Kendra and thanks for keeping up such a high standard it shows.
It was a lovely surprise to find somewhere so modern and well equipped for the location we were looking for. The house is spacious and feels luxurious with the designer bathrooms, and alfresco overlooking the pool, this property has set the bar a lot higher and will look forward to staying in this owners properties in the future, it really was delightful, what you see in the photos is exactly what you get.

as my one line title says, this place is absolutely stunning with an amazing Master Suite with walk in closet and Jacuzzi spa bath! It is also conveniently located in between Perth downtown and the artsy village by the sea Fremantle so all in all cool spot. It also has a great kitchen and outdoor BBQ area perfect for entertaining also. Lastly the owner Kendra is a very helpful person who addressed any minor request with utmost speed and courteousness. All in a ll a superb place to have a short stay in Perth.
My stay at Ambar Villa was a truly delightful experience. Right from the ease of booking to the check-out, everything was a five star experience.
The rooms were quite opulent with all the facilities. The swimming pool, the barbecue, the linen, the cleanliness and above all the ever helping hostess made my stay a real luxury.
I would definitely be staying here whenever I'm in Perth and would highly recommend the place to anybody.
