We stayed at Bright Skies for one week. Great location, beautiful garden and amazing host. Kim provided us with everything needed and was very helpful. As someone who just arrived in Australia I can say with confidence: We had a relaxed stay with a warm and lovely host. Thank you Kim for making our stay so wonderful.

We stayed at Bright Skies for 7 weeks and found it very relaxing. If you don't want to drive the the public transport is very good with buses into Joondalup & Whitfords close by.

The room has everything you need and Kim had supplied us with everything you need if you had just arrived from the airport which is a great bonus. Lots do not think of this. It is close to supermarket, restaurants and the train station at Joondalup is not too far. We loved our stay it was very peaceful and had a dip in the pool which is so close would have used it more if the weather had been a little warmer. We hope to return some time in the future. Many thanks Kim for making us welcome in your home.

Kim made us very welcome with a perfect balance of looking after us whilst respecting our privacy. Well located for the Freeway and local beaches, with use of the swimming pool opposite Bright Skies, it was a perfect choice.

We stayed at Bright Skies for just under 3 weeks and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Kim made us feel welcome and at home. The accommodation is neat and clean and everything is at your disposal. We will definitely stay there again when next we go to Perth.

I stayed at Bright skies in June 2014 as a new migrant while I looked for more long term accomodation. As I needed to be in the Joondalup area of Perth the location was ideal. Connolly being 10 mins walk from the Joondalup train station which is situated in the Lakeside shopping centre. The train system links you to the rest of Perth. Kim is a great host and very helpful with any questions about Perth or Australia in general. I stayed at Bright skies on my own while waiting for the rest of my family to arrive but the room and facilities would be more than suitable for a travelling couple. Kim provided all the things needed for comfortable self catering stay along with the use of washing and kitchen facilities. I would certainly recommend Bright skies for anyone wishing to stay in North Perth as either tourist or commuter.

We stayed with Kim at Bright Skies during the month of March for 16 days. We have a lovely big room with private use of a bathroom and toilet. The kitchen lounge and garden was shared access. Kim is a great host, very friendly and helpful and was there if we needed her advise or recommendations but also gave us loads of privacy as well I would not hesitate to stay with Kim if ever we visit Perth again and we willdefinately be making a beeline for the Kangeroo Arms English Pub which is within walking distance and serves great food and of course a very nice wine or too! Thank you Kim for helping to make our visit to see our daughter so delightful xxx

From the moment I arrived, Kim went out of her way to welcome me and help me settle in. She really went out of her way to show me around, and she has a real passion for her local area. She's such a friendly, warm person I feel like I've made a friend during my stay. The place itself is fantastic. Lovely little garden, plenty of space and air con (a must in the summer!) Set into a complex of similar houses, it's quiet, and there's a lovely pool, located in the middle of the complex (10 seconds walk from Kim's front door) so you can cool off during the heat waves! The bedroom is very modern, comfortable and cool. Fridge, TV, desk and huge mirrored wardrobes, it's just ideal. I also had full use of the kitchen, and my own cupboard with utensils etc so I could be totally self contained. Although Connolly was really quiet and more suited for someone with a car, I found the public transport was decent during normal working hours, with a bus stop just around the corner which runs to the local shopping center. There are also local shops and restaurants a 5 min walk from Kim's place, and another five minute walk and you're at the golf course where you can see Kangaroos at dusk! The golf course also has a decent English style pub too. In the town (about 5 mins bus ride away) there are more pubs, restaurants, banks, and a shopping center too. If you're looking for a friendly host who gives you space but is sociable if you like that too, and you want some of the best beaches just a few minutes drive in the car, a taste of real suburban WA life, a chill by a quiet pool, your own space, a friendly host, and a sleep in a very comfortable bedroom at night, then Bright Skies is the place for you. Highly recommended and already considering a return visit!!!
