Absolutely beautiful townhouse with every need catered for. A true home away from home! Our puppy enjoyed exploring the backyard & we enjoyed relaxing under the pergola. Our stay was for 6 weeks & Morag & Willie were terrific hosts & so obliging. Highly recommend staying here.

Relax and enjoy

  • 5 of 5

We flew into Perth in January 2018 as the temperature nudged 37 degrees C. We entered The Sanctuary to find it lived up to its name. The lights were on, the air conditioning was on and there was a lovely welcome basket waiting for us. Morag arrived shortly afterwards. She is so friendly, a really lovely lady.

The house is nicely furnished with pictures and mirrors giving a homely feel. It has plenty of space and is really well equipped. Everything you need is there, including excellent wifi. It's in a lovely road, a few minutes walk from the river and lots of supermarkets and cafes within a ten minute drive. We liked the Melville shopping centre.

The garden was absolutely delightful. We had nearly all our meals out there. If you were quiet, the birds would come down to the numerous flowering plants to drink the nectar from the grevillea flowers or feast on the grapes as they ripen. There were lots of seats so you could be in the sun or the shade as you wished. A fine Weber BBQ meant that we could cook in the garden too and there was a handy washing line for when you had a machine load of washing to dry.

Very few negatives to this property. The new bathroom is really lovely but the house only has one toilet which might be a problem if there are six of you. The parking space is a bit narrow if you have a big car. Other than that, it's an excellent place to stay. Thank you Morag, hope to see you again.

Fantastic place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this property. It is so well appointed and has absolutely everything you need whether it's for a few days or a month. The location is convenient as it's very close to the river and a great area for walking and places to eat and buy food are close by. It's a big house with room to move around with a very secure back garden which was really lovely. We were able to take our dog which made our stay perfect. We met the owners who live next door and they were very nice. If you want to stay in Perth for a good price in a fantastic property..... Stay here !!

We recently stayed here for approximately 2 weeks and it was absolutely fantastic.

The townhouse itself has absolutely everything you need, linen, beach and bath towels, board games, washing products, books, bbq, outdoor furniture and a great little welcome basket full of delicious snacks. Its location is perfect, 200m walk from the water, 5min walk/2min drive to great cafes, and a 25minute drive to most suburbs, fremantle, cottesloe etc etc.

It is the perfect size, great split level layout and the back courtyard area is perfect in the afternoons.

The owner Morag was exceptionally friendly and helpful to top everything else off.

We would definitely stay here again and will be recommending to all my family and friends should they ever travel to Perth.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed for a couple of weeks at The Sanctuary and are extremely happy with the unit. It was a perfect base to use while in Perth and is situated in a lovely quiet area. The owner is very friendly and helpful, unit clean and has everything that you could need. The kids loved the welcome basket too, thanks so much for the great stay.
