“House built with sense and love...”

When we first arrived at Alfred Cove, didn't think very much of 'accommodation'. Thinking is just a roof under our head for our 3 nights stay in Perth (family holiday consisting of 9 adults).

When we stepped inside, the house captured my heart. I felt the owner's love and effort been put into this rental house. Shirley and Duncan has did an amazing job on it. It was indeed a home away from home. So much common sense has put into designing including the convenience of the facilities.

We were blown away by their hospitality, and their sincerity offering such great well planned accommodation for travelers.

I highly recommend Alfred Cove to all of you, family, friends or a large group etc. You will be very pleased with what you saw.

p/s : as we were leaving, the owner was going to clean up and prepare the house themselves
for the next arriving guests! what more can you ask for...

“"A rare gem - more like a home than a rental"”

Our family have been fortunate enough to stay with Shirley and Douglas at Istana Alfred Cove in Perth, 10th to 13th Dec 2013.

The whole house is very spacious and airy, perfect set-up for 9 of us in terms of layout. Bedrooms are tastefully decorated and bathrooms are very clean. We loved the spacious living area, TV room, and especially when the owners had converted the garage space to an area where the guests can enjoy a game of table tennis & table soccer. Every one of us had our fun!

Days when we like to cook on our own, the kitchen has everything in there that made it so easy to whip up a decent meal for the whole family. Complimentary food & fruits are provided by the owners too. That’s a bonus!

Shirley and Douglas are very warm and accommodating. They made desserts for us and they tried their best to meet our requests. They did more than what as a house owner could have possibly done amidst their busy schedule. Thumbs up!

Douglas, thank you for your food recommendation. It was excellent.
Shirley, thank you for the help rendered and the birthday cake was a lovely touch :)

We truly loved our stay. It definitely surpassed ALL of our expectations..!

“Brilliant!”
Reviewed 14 December 2013 for a stay in December 2013

We had stayed at this brilliant location on the 10th of December to 13th of December. With a traveling party of 9 person and 2 rented cars. It was rather difficult to find a suitable place to stay but I was overwhelmed once I reach this awesome place.

There was wifi, laptop, washing machine, dryer , table tennis table, mahjong table, karaoke, old school arcade machine and a treadmill machine for the facilities. Not to mention 2 great hosts in Douglas and Shirley.

Location was great with Perth city, Fremantle market, Crown Casino just a couple minutes drive away.

This is an awesome place for a great family vacation... Thanks to Douglas and Shirley...

We cannot wait to be back.
