“A Cosy Oasis for a great getaway!”

The Rusty Hollow is a wonderful place to stay, it a uniquely restored railway carriage and is only 4km's from Guildford near Perth in Western Australia. There are fresh eggs, home-baked bread provided by the very friendly owners. The owners have usefully supplied 2 bikes with helmets and locks.There a wonderful soft cosy double bed one end and 2 singles at the other end of the carriage. The feel is retro but with loads of wall socket for modern tech! The owner also support the environment in many ways and ask you do the same. They are situated next to a reserve you can wander in and it is only a short drive to the Swan Valley......I think it is a lovely spot and will definitely book again !

We'd love to host you again---thank you for your kind words! No bicycles at present, so car is the best transport option. Or perhaps NO car offers the best excuse to relax and enjoy the quiet? :o) There are some fantastic small coach tours of the nearby Swan Valley which depart from Guildford, if anyone is keen to try some of the amazing wineries while someone else does the driving. Hope to see you again soon!

The Rusty Hollow is a truly uniquely wonderful place to stay, the beautifully restored railway carriage is located around 4km's outside of Guildford near Perth in Western Australia. The owners are delightfully friendly and provide fresh eggs, home-baked bread and even freshly roasted coffee beans for your stay. On arrival you are greeted with the sight of the carriage laid within a little track off the side of the road. The carriage decoration is really tastefully done, modern appliances coupled with a retro look. As the accommodation isn't within easy walking distance of the town centre the owners have usefully supplied 2 bikes with helmets, this also include a lock for when you park up - no lights though so make sure you are back by dark! The interior is really snug and comfortable, a soft cozy double bed one end and 2 singles at the other end of the carriage. Wall sockets everywhere and fly-screens on the drop windows (really nice touch). Its unique, comfortable and superb. I really recommend staying here!

Thank you again for staying with us---we're so glad that you enjoyed your visit! The bicycles are currently unavailable, so guests are advised to have their own car for getting about. (it takes 30 minutes to walk to the nearest village). Taxis are another option, and we're always happy to assist with directions via mobile phone if needed.

Beautifully restored railway carriage with clean facilities. Nice and cosy but still enough room for my husband and I and our two kids. Friendly and welcoming hosts keep to themselves but are around if you need them. They provided a lovely fresh continental breakfast and we were welcome to walk around the farm and even watch the cow being milked.
The only down side I found was the noisy fridge, but no one else seemed bothered by it.

Thank you for your kind words---it was our pleasure to host your family! The chickens and cows really enjoyed the extra attention and all the yummy treats. We are so happy that you enjoyed yourselves, and you are welcome to visit us again anytime.
Apologies for the fridge---those retro 1950's models look really cool, but they don't quite behave like modern-day ones!
