If you are looking for a perfect vacation house in suburb of Perth then this the best choice. We were travelling with 16pax consist of 9 adults, 6 children and 1 infant. Know what? This is perfectly fits us. The owner knows everything what a tenant needs especially if you are a muslim. They prepare the sertu soap, prayer mat and even the direction of the Kiblah. We were given all the list of halal stores and halal eateries long before we came here so we can make our preparation. They also assist us on buying halal meat and chicken for our stay there without any handling charges. Superb!!! As for the children, since this not our first time travelling together, they don't want to leave the house. Its weird..all because of the games and entertainment provided by the house owner. Its like living in your own house. The 4 bedroom + 1 karaoke room will be lasting for a very long time in our heart. Cooking makes easier with all the stove, microwave. dishwasher, refrigerant and the setup makes you feels like you own that kitchen. A lot to say regarding the house..but just experience it and you will know the different..Thanks house owner Shirley & Douglas for providing us HOME : )
Strategically placed between Perth CBD and Fremantle. For muslim there are few Halal restaurant nearby (10-15 mins drive). Alternative you can also cook at home. The host has prepared 'muslim purification soap' to 'samak/ clean' all the utensils. The game room is awesome and kids will definitely love it. For those travelling using low cost carrier such as Air Asia, you don't need to bring many clothes as you can use the washing machine/ dryer provided therefore same your Kg cost. We will definately stay there again on our next visit to Perth. Thanks to Shirley for your kind and great hospitality and all the shopping tips... you rock!!!!!!!
We are a family of 8 and the place is just perfect for our 5 days trip to Perth. The location is at the center and our accommodation host Shirley is warm, friendly and thoughtful. Rooms are clean, with comfy beds and large spaces. Will stay at alfred cove again definitely. :)
Everything, from booking to the real stay was a breeze. Shirley is such a friendly and helpful host! My kids simply loved the huge amount of activities that kept them occupied throughout our stay. They did not even want to go to bed! my in laws enjoyed themselves too. They even had a mahjong session. All in all, I highly recommend this place, nice and cosy, huge and clean.
What can I say! Terrific worry-free stay for a pregnant mama (third trimester!) with a toddler in tow and a hard to please 80 year old grandma!
We visited for the first time in August 2015 with our 16 month old and came back for a second visit in August 2016. This time, I was 29 weeks pregnant and Shirley and Douglas made sure our stay was comfortable.
I had my mother and 80 year old grandmother who flew in from Hong Kong stay with us this trip. Even my usually hard to please grandmother was thrilled about the accommodation and the care we received.
Please do yourself a favour and book a stay here! Thanks so much Shirley and Douglas!!
Stayed there for 6 days .... Loved it the minute we stepped in. Everything was so beautifully done, well Organised n well equipped ! Shirley even provided fruits n some groceries upon arrival. My Daughter loved the games room while we enjoyed the karaoke room n of cos Mahjong!!! It made us feel so at home ! Unfortunately for us my mom had a bad fall whilst we were out and Shirley went the extra mile of providing a walking cane n some
Ointment for the bruises. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay n will definitely be back again !!
The Istana Alfred Cove definitely ranks #1 as my best stay ever!!! Shirley thought of every aspect of what her guests may need. We have nothing negative and that's a first for me!
Highly recommend the Istana for large groups.
