We are not a five-star hotel but we are sure you will find our home a welcoming and relaxing place to stay while you enjoy the many sights and activities of Perth and its surrounds. Come home to our quiet sanctuary after a busy day of playing tourist or conducting business.
Check-in (from 2.00pm) and check-out (by 11.00am) times are negotiable depending on availability of the room. We are also open to stays of longer than 7 nights. Just ask.
Check-out is 11.00am. This is negotiable depending on availability of the room. If you want to extend your stay by a day or more, please ask. This might be possible depending on bookings.
A continental breakfast (cereal, juice, toast, tea or coffee) is available between 7am and 10am. If you require breakfast earlier, just ask. Please let us know in the evening an approximate time you would like breakfast. If we are not here, breakfast will be set up for you to help yourself. Tea and coffee is available all day.
Please use the exhaust fan when showering (bottom switch inside the door). The light for the mirror and the power points are inside the mirrored cabinet.
The shower has an instant water heater. To start the flow of hot water, pull out the mixer tap fully and then adjust. Please use the scraper to clean the glass after showering. Use the bathmat as the tiles can be slippery when wet.
If you forgot your basic shower amenities, please ask.
Use of the kitchen is generally restricted to preparing sandwiches and so forth for lunch and not for cooking meals (other arrangements may be possible). Please ask before using the kitchen and please leave the kitchen clean and tidy. Do not help yourself to food in the pantry or fridge. No preparation of meals in your room.
LAUNDRY AND IRONING
There is an ironing board and iron in the laundry. Please ask if you need to use it. Please do not wash clothes in the bathroom. If you want to use the laundry, please ask. A small charge of $2 per wash applies. We use the outside clothes line for drying and only use the clothes dryer when necessary.
Please use our on-site parking and refrain from parking on the street or verges.
ALARM AND LOCKING UP THE HOUSE
The house is alarmed when no one is here. If we are not going to be here, we will provide a key and a code and instructions on setting and disarming the alarm. The bedroom window is locked and we will give you a key. Please ensure all doors and windows are locked before you go out. The front security door must be locked at all times. Just flip the locking device.
There is a sensor security light on the front porch. Please do not turn it off.
SAVING THE PLANET
We aim to be an environmentally friendly household. Perth has limited water supplies. Therefore we ask that you be mindful of water use when using the hand basin, in the kitchen and when showering (short showers please). Please don't leave taps running unnecessarily (e.g. when cleaning teeth and shaving).
As part of our environmentally friendly approach, we change towels and sheets every week (for stays of seven nights or longer). If you do want a fresh towel at some stage during your stay, please let us know. We service the room when we change the sheets, not daily.
We only use the heating and air-conditioning when absolutely necessary. During hot days, close the window and the curtains and that will help keep the room cool. The nights are generally cooler and an open window at night will cool the room. When the air-conditioning is on, the window needs to be slightly open to allow the cool air to flow.
Please turn off lights and appliances when not using them.
Our garden is watered using our own bore system that is not connected to the main supply.
GARDEN AND POOL
Please feel free to relax in the back garden and use the sun lounges.
The pool is a salt water pool. We keep the pool cover on when the pool is not in use to minimise evaporation and use of chemicals. It also maintains a pleasant water temperature. If you want to swim and the cover is on, please ask and we will remove it. If we are not going to be here, we will show you how to remove and store the cover and put it back on at the end of the day.
No diving or excessive splashing that wastes water.
Do not use our bath towels for the pool. We can provide pool towels if needed.
Please use only plastic glasses around the pool; no glass or bottles.
There are power points at floor level behind the curtains plus a power board at the bedhead. If you forgot your adapter, please ask. We might have one to lend you.
This is a non-smoking home. No smoking anywhere! If you do smoke, please go outside the gate.
We prefer that you not have visitors in our house. Definitely no visitors when we are not here. As this is a residential neighbourhood, please keep noise to a minimum, especially if returning to the house late in the evening.
We have a folder with tourist and other information, maps and bus timetables.
If you have any questions, please ask!

Reviews of this property
Top accommodation; The interior, bed and washroom are very good (everything clean and tidy). The location is good as well, easy to find and get to and away from.
We can highly recommend Allan & Pär-Johan as hosts, and same for the room!
We would come back everytime again.
We had a great time. Allan and Pär-Johan are really nice and they helped us a lot. They have a wonderful house in a great region. We can recommend them.
Came back for a second day, since the first stay had been such a nice experience. Wish these extraordinary friendly host all the best and would book in any time again when I'm around.
Very nice and attentive host. Neighborhood is beautiful for a stroll. I enjoyed the stay and thank you very much for the hospitality.
Spontanius and warm Hosts, that made us feel at home strait away.
Upon ore next down under vacation, we will come back to your wonderful paradise.
Thanks for a lovely time.
Eric & Brigitte
We spent a great time and no doubt we will return.
Per-Johan and Allan are gracious hosts who know how to put you at ease.
We enjoyed our discussions in the evening on the terrace ...
Furthermore the house is really nice, very clean and being able to enjoy the pool which was 30 ° and sun loungers, can only give a great addition to the B & B I especially recommend.
Nous avons passé une excellent séjour et aucun doute que nous y retournerons.
Allan et Par-Johan sont des hôtes charmants qui savent vous mettre à l'aise.
Nous avons beaucoup apprécié nos discussions le soir sur la terrasse...
De plus la maison est vraiment très agréable, très propre et le fait de pouvoir profiter de la piscine qui était à 30° et des chaises longues, ne peux que donner un grand plus à ce B&B que je recommande tout particulièrement.
Our stay at Pär Johann and Allan was the best thing that could happen to us !! I traveled with my daughter to Perth for 5 days. The room consists of a 140cm bed (very comfortable), two Nachtskonsölchen, a closet, a small sideboard. This includes a nice bathroom, which is modern and tastefully furnished with WC, shower (glass) and a sink. Each guest gets a bath towel, a towel and a beach towel. You can wash for a small fee laundry. Breakfast consists of toast, various jams, cereals, milk, coffee / tea, orange juice. It is perfectly adequate and is served on the terrace in front of the swimming pool. Thick juicy lemons growing on the trees in the garden. Also lime. The warm pool was very pleasant in the heat and we have this very cool genossen.Falls you buy wine or other foods that you can put them in the refrigerator. Nearby there is a pizzeria. If you drive two kilometers to get to a shopping center. There plenty of very reasonably priced restaurants are where you can eat very well. After Perth itself there are a few kilometers. However, I would say that the hotel is not far away. By bus or taxi or rental car, all goals are easily accessible. The bus stop is a few meters from the house.
Pär Johann was soooooo nice and personable. It is very accurate and can be relied absolutely on him. He helped us a lot. We had wonderful conversations. Yes, you can say we have found new friends in Australia. Allan was not there at the time. But we have got to know him on the last night. He is just as likeable and amiable as Pär Johann. We would highly recommend the Guesthous EACH. A hotel, just how many stars, I would always be against a stay at Pär Johann and Allen are left. Could not be better !! I would not hesitate to rent there again and have this property have many highly recommended.
Unser Aufenthalt bei Pär Johann und Allan war das Beste was uns passieren konnte!! Ich bin mit meiner Tochter nach Perth gereist für 5 Tage. Das Zimmer besteht aus einem 140 cm Bett (sehr bequem), zwei Nachtskonsölchen, einem Schrank, einem kleinem Sideboard. Dazu gehört ein schönes Badezimmer, das modern und geschmackvoll ausgestattet ist mit WC, Dusche (Glas) und einem Waschbecken. Jeder Gast bekommt ein Badetuch, ein Handtuch und ein Strandbadetuch. Man kann gegen einen kleinen Obolus Wäsche waschen. Das Frühstück besteht aus Toast, verschiedene Marmeladensorten, Müsli, Milch, Kaffe/Tee, Orangensaft. Es ist absolut ausreichend und wird auf der Terrasse vor dem Swimmingpool serviert. Dicke saftige Zitronen wachsen auf den Bäumen im Garten. Ebenso Limetten. Der warme Pool war sehr angenehm in der Hitze und wir haben diese Abkühlung sehr genossen.Falls man Wein oder andere Lebensmittel kauft, kann man sie in den Kühlschrank legen. In der Nähe gibt es eine Pizzeria. Wenn man zwei Kilometer fährt gelangt man an ein Einkaufszentrum. Dort sind jede menge sehr preisgünstige Lokale in denen man sehr gut Essen kann. Nach Perth selbst sind es ein paar Kilometer. Dennoch würde ich sagen, dass die Unterkunft nicht weit entfernt liegt. Mit Bus bzw. Taxi oder Mietwagen sind alle Ziele sehr gut erreichbar. Die Bushaltestelle liegt ein paar Meter entfernt vom Haus.
Pär Johann war soooooo nett und sympathisch. Er ist sehr korrekt und man kann sich auf ihn absolut verlassen. Er hat uns viel geholfen. Wir hatten wunderbare Gespräche. Ja, man kann sagen wir haben Freunde in Australien gefunden. Allan war zu der Zeit nicht da. Wir haben ihn aber am letzten Abend kennengelernt. Er ist ebenso sympathisch und liebenswürdig wie Pär Johann. Wir würden das Guesthous JEDEM wärmstens empfehlen. Ein Hotel, gleich wieviel Sterne, würde ich stets gegen einen Aufenthalt bei Pär Johann und Allen links liegen lassen. Besser gehts nicht!! Ich würde jederzeit wieder dort mieten und habe diese Unterkunft schon vielfach wärmstens empfohlen.
Nice house cozy and warm reception. Friendly hosts.
Prettig huis en warme gezellige ontvangst. Vriendelijke gastheren.
After a long flight we arrived to this little heaven on earth. Its beautiful, quiet and very comfortable. Allan and Pär-Johan are great hosts, friendly and helpful and have become very good friends to us. We keep coming back whenever we come to Perth.
We had the best imaginable start into our new lives in Australia at the Goody Bed and Breakfast when staying there the first three weeks after our arrival. Allan and Par-Johan were amiable and very obliging hosts. We had great conversations and strongly recommend their home to anyone who wants to become acquainted with Perth and its surroundings in a cosy and familiar atmosphere. We hope and are very sure that we'll soon be catching up again.
