This is a lovely little studio tucked away in Bernd's garden. We stayed for 6 nights and really felt comfortable. The garden is beautiful and well stocked with mature trees and plants which give the feeling of privacy even though the owner is around tending the plants and cleaning the pool.
Bernd was very discreet but it is his home and so was in the garden on occassions but we had no problem with this as he was very helpful and it was nice to have a chat.
The studio probably wasn't spotless and the windows and frames could have done with a clean but it wasn't a clinical hotel that cost a fortune either.
Bernd suggested a car hire company in the nearby town which was most helpful as they picked us up from the studio and took us to do the paperwork and collect the car and then drove us back when we dropped it off.
There is a bus stop within walking distance with buses going into Perth city which is better than driving as car parking was expensive in the city. Then we used the free CAT buses to travel around and see the sights and stop at the shops etc.
The coast road is lovely to drive on and there are several places to stop for beaches, cafes and bars along the route.
Walking distance from the studio you have a shopping area wjth supermarket,bottle shop. take aways and restaurants, the Thai restaurant was very good.
The local beach is within walking distance with the usual cafe and facilities but if you have a car you have several to choose from along the coast road.
We would definately stay at the Studio again and recommend it to others, a fab place to chill out and relax.

We arrived early at Sunset Studio and were made very welcome by our host, who was available but not intrusively so during our stay. The accomodation met our needs, was well appointed and was set in a beautiful garden just right for relaxing, with a pool for cooling off in when the sun was hot. The studio is within very easy walking distance of the beach and surf club. The nearby village shopping area has handy shops and bus stops within easy reach. We really enjoyed our stay and would definately recommend to our friends and family.

“Paradise”

My husband and I stayed in the Sunset Studio for almost three weeks. We really enjoyed our stay here. The cottage is a little older on the inside but it is very clean and has everything you need. The cottage has a highly functional kitchen which is great for making meals and drinks. There is even an outdoor BBQ if you prefer.

We found the bed and pillows to be very clean and comfortable. There is a front load washing machine to do your wash which was a real bonus for us. There were plenty of towels and even two beach towels for the beach.

The outdoor space is just beautiful. The front and back are surrounded by beautiful trees , birds and fragrant flowers. The pool is beautiful, Bernd cleaned the pool every morning even though we never used it. The outdoor daybed was just wonderful. We spent many afternoons reading and relaxing here. We really enjoyed the outdoor space, it is a little piece of paradise to come home to after a long day of adventure.

The location of the studio was great. We found it to be very convenient to get around. Everything was just a short drive away for us. You could walk to the beach if you like, but we had a car.

Bernd was a wonderful host. He was very respectful of our privacy, but if you needed anything he was there to help. We really enjoyed his little dog "Juan" He is the sweetest and cutest little dog. Thank you Bernd and Juan for making our trip to Australia so wonderful. You have a beautiful home here. Hopefully one day we will be able to come again.

“Great location - near to beach - BUT.......”

Great location and a lovely setting, however you are never alone being in the owners back garden.

The first night of our stay was spent cleaning the place, either the owner or the previous guests had left the kitchen and bathroom in a sorry state. Crockery, cutlery, pans etc were new and clean, however the draws and cupboards were were not.

The bedding consisted of two rather thin single duvets for what is a double bed, both were totally worn out. A top cover was stained with a hole in it. Pillows limp and lifeless also one was badly stained.

Windows looked as though they had not been cleaned for ages.
The pool was unusable - water was green.

Come on Bernd get your finger out and get some cleaning done your guests should not be expected to do it for you. Get some new bedding, Treat the damp in the bathroom. Get a new cooker hob unit, as you are aware only one ring is working. Repair the leak on the gas bottle before the studio ends up in the pool!

However all that said, we did enjoy the garden which is beautiful and Bernd is very pleasant and welcoming. I would recommend you stay here provided all these things were put right.
