Istana Alfred Cove is just like a “home away from home”, with complete amenities that makes any vacation stress free. We initially planned a family trip for 7-8 people, but in the end only 5 of us made it. The house is spacious and has more than enough room to house a group of 8+ people. The entertainment room and Karaoke was a huge bonus. The house is clean, tidy and bright with modern furnishings. Surrounding environment is extremely pleasant being in a residential area and we felt very safe. Location is also very convenient, being close to shops, grocery stores, food (KFC just around the corner!) We hired a car so going places from Alfred Cove was very quick and easy. We liked how Shirley was just next door, and deeply appreciated her kind advice/information when we had many questions to ask.
Our stay was an absolutely memorable experience and I’ll definitely recommend this place to friends!
This is an awesome house ~ so comfortable, spacious, warm, and homely! Shirley and Douglas are super friendly welcoming hosts and made us feel right at home. The house is very spacious with 4 bedrooms, an entertainment room, a living room, a games room, large kitchen and dining area, outdoor patio area, laundry room, 2.5 bathrooms, and a covered carport area. The house is conveniently located to all major destinations. Only 20mins away from Perth City; 20mins to Fremantle; 30mins to the airport; less than 10mins to Garden City (a shopping mall with everything! Including supermarkets, department stores, chemists, cafes, movie theatre). With modern furnishings and decor, the house is very clean and tidy. The house is complete with all the necessities ~ all the pots and pans if you want to cook at home; kitchen utensils; complete set of plates/bowls/cutlery for more than 8 people; washing machine & dryer; fridge freezer with a wide variety of cooking sauces; a great range of seasonings. Comfy beds and spacious rooms. We were impressed with the games & entertainment room! (Never worried that you'll be bored at night!) We'd like to say a special "thanks" to the lovely hosts, Shirley and Douglas, for their kind hospitality during our stay. Shirley was very helpful and made us feel warmly welcomed (as it was our first visit to Perth). And we were touched by the kind treat they gave us one evening (which we all enjoyed! Thank you!).
Without a doubt, we will recommend this lovely residence to our friends and family if they stay in Perth. And we'll definitely come to stay again next time! Awesome place! Convenient location. Couldn't ask for more!
Istana Alfred Cove is a beautifully clean, incredibly equipped and wonderfully comfortable holiday accommodation option. We stayed with our 2 children (one baby and a 2.5 yr old) for 8 nights, with my parents also staying with us for 4 of those nights.
We had plenty of room and individuals were even able to escape the kids in other areas of the house if they wanted.
The location was great for access to Fremantle and Perth city. There is also a gym over the highway for those wanting to keep up with fitness!
Lots of information regarding the use of facilities within the house and great, prompt communication with Shirley. We had a great home away from home for the week!
The homestay is as awesome as the owner, shirley! Shirley response promptly to all the queries, she is so helpful, provided us with all the travel info before we travel to Perth. She even willing to do grocery shopping for us before our arrival. We love the homestay so much, it is a luxury cosy place, they have everything that you need for a holiday in a homestay. 5 stars for Shirley and Istana Alfred Cove!
This is our second stay and its as awesome as the first with the kids really enjoying themselves with the entertainment room, games rooms and outdoor dining area.
They even provided us with eski during our lobster catching trip with picnic mats. A very well equipped house for cooking, entertaining, bbq parties and conveniently located. My son and i even jogged along the scenic river 3mins walk away 2x this week!
Thank you Shirley and Doug for the hospitality and great stay yet again.
Istana Alfred Cove was amazing. We enjoyed our time there. The table tennis and pinball machine and other arcade games were pretty cool. I brought my 6 month old baby and they had everything from baby bath tub to shampoo hat and toys even. My bubba had long naps and sleep in their porta cot.
Thank you Shirley. We really enjoyed our stay
