Swan River/Kings Park accommodation

We were hoping to stay at the Peninsula Riverside apartments for a few days from 5th November but have found out that the Red Bull air race is on and the minimum stay is 7 nights plus $$$ loading. Also the one bedroomed apartments with river view do not have twin beds which we would want.

Does anyone know of any nice apartments with a view that we could try?

Thanks.

An earlier post re accommodation saw the comment by Guruswife that basically all accommodation within cooee of the city is now fully booked for the time the race is in town. Have you considered Fremantle or Hillarys Boat Harbour instead?

Thanks Perthite. I did realise that it might be difficult but I'm happy to give it a try. Sometimes agents like HotelClub or Australiahotels.com can get you a room when you can't do it yourself.

We're happy to consider Fremantle or Hillarys Boat Harbour. Any suggestions for nice, well reviewed apartments there?

Thanks.

There are apartments up that way but none that I can personally recommend. Being a local have not had any call to try them out. Sorrento Resort gets mixed reviews and there are no recent reviews on the Hillarys Harbour Apartments. Seashells at Scarborough also gets mixed reviews. Sorry - not much help on this occasion.

Not n apartment with a view but a lovely, well equipped and affordable house:

We love staying here on little getaways to Freo, the house is one of the best equipped we have ever stayed in, and it is within easy walking distance of the beach and the cafe strip in Freo. There are also bus stops within reasonable distance. The owners, who live next door, are hospitable and helpful. Can't recommend this place highly enough!

If you look in the guest book, you'll see Sir Frank Hardy of America's Cup fame has stated here (twice, IIRC).
