“I will stay at no place else in Perth the next time”

If you are a looking from a home away from home, look no further. The host Marilyn and Patrick treats you like family. I especially enjoy the chit chat that I have with them, they also enlighten me what is it like living in Perth. They were knowledgable in guiding first time traveller where to eat and go for sightseeing. Their house was clean and if you like relaxing by the pool, they have a beautiful pool as well. The location is not too far from any attraction such as Kings Park and the Perth Zoo. If you like the night life, the house is near the fremantle habour and market where there Little Creature brewery and Kalis fish market are. Overall I will recommend it to anyone who likes a quiet and beautiful neighbourhood.

“Enjoyable 5 night stay”

We spent a most enjoyable short week in Perth following a recent WA tour.
Being our first "home" stay experience, we weren't quite sure what to expect, until we were greeted by Marilyn & Pat on arrival at the airport. They made us most welcome and our top floor 3 bedroom plus living room accommodation in their home was clean, tidy, and very comfortable for our stay.
Located to the South of Perth, the bus (just up the street) took us to the City in about 15 minutes in morning traffic, and in about the same time on return. We found the Perth public transport system to be excellent, and on the Tuesday when we went by boat to Fremantle, we even returned to our "home" by bus as well.
A return trip to Perth at some time in the future would see us enjoying Marilyn & Pat's hospitality once more.

“Gorgeous,home from home!!”
Reviewed April 20, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

My family and I recently returned from a 'visa validation' trip to Perth and i'm so glad I stumbled upon this little gem of a place to stay. The accommodation was perfect for our family of 5,3 big bedrooms,a living area,spacious bathroom,own kitchen and a balcony with BBQ and unlimited use of the pool,we couldn't have asked for more.

The location is ideal,close to shops,restaurants,parks,river and if you have use of a car you are never more than a short drive away from somewhere fantastic...the city,fremantle,Hilarys, the beach...the list is endless. We didn't use any public transport as a family but my husband did and he said it's regular,easy and convenient to get around on the buses and trains.

As for the owners,Marilyn and Pat,what a wonderful couple.We were treat like part of the family and we felt like it.They are warm and caring and nothing is too much trouble.As we are moving to Perth,the advice we got was invaluable...good areas to live,good schools,where to shop,nice restaurants,football clubs..I could go on but Marilyn and Pat advised us on everything,there's nothing we couldn't ask. Our boys loved them and their dogs (and cat) and I never worried about the kids being noisy or in the way, they walked the dogs with Marilyn a few times and loved it.

So to sum it all up,if you want to stay in a homely environment with warm,welcoming people,this is the place for you. We loved it so much we are moving 5 minutes up the road so we'll be calling in for a cuppa!!

“Wonderful accommodation for the Wrinkly Trekkers”
Reviewed April 3, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

My wife and I enjoyed our six night stay. The apartment was approx midway between 'Freo' and Perth CBD and located in a very pleasant residential area. Excellent local transport, as we had no car. The local regular bus took 10 minutes to get into the centre of Perth and twenty minutes to 'Freo'. The apartment was spacious and located in South Perth : deal for touring/sightseeing/visiting the Perth area. The owners, Pat and Marilyn were extremely friendly and obliging and gave us plenty of advice and made us very welcome in their home - they could not do enough. Thankyou Patrick & Marilyn.
Tips : ensure you visit 'Freo' (Fremantel) and its historical sights, watch the Sun go down from Freo eating local fish n chips (wonderful) and have the correct money available for the local bus.

Myself,wife and 20 month year old loved our time with Marilyn and Patrick. We had never stayed in a holiday rental and it exceeded all of our expectations and both Marilyn and Patrick went out of there way to make us feel at home. Facilities were great and we all loved the pool which was a lovely addition to have in the hot weather,we used it every day and miss it already. The apartment is baby friendly and well furnished meeting all of our needs

We would highly recommend staying here and will definitely return. Marilyn and Patrick were a great help giving us information about the local area and where to go which really helped us make the most of our holiday.

We can't wait to return and found there website very useful www.gibsonapartment.com in the run up to the holiday.

It was really a pleasant stay for my family and children. Marilyn and Patrick are wonderful hosts and made our stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. It is just 10 mins drive to the city and Fremantle. Big rooms with spacious living, kitchen and dining area just for us. Not to mention a great pool!!
