About the property

At "Rothwood" we have many short term accommodation options. From 1 room for 1 night for 2 people too the exclusive use of the whole property for 10 people for 2 weeks or more. The choice is yours and we do our very best to accommodate everyone's individual requirements. Please note that our prices start from $120 per room, per night, for a couple.

Set on 5 beautiful acres with lush green paddocks, fruit tree orchard, large grassed gardens with native shrubs plants and trees, babbling brook with an old timber bridge, swimming pool with built-in spa, large deck area, Bali gazebo and a ornate brick built BBQ is "ROTHWOOD". A former equestrian centre which has been lovingly restored into a perfect homestay / farmstay retreat. We have 6 horses 5 chooks, a plethora of wild birds such as black Cockatoo's, Parrots, Kookaburra's, lots of ducks, eagle's, magpies, curlews, blue wrens and many more. Oh I must not forget our resident Bandicoot. A funny little creature who comes out at dusk every night to feed and is a marsupial.

"Rothwood" is a mix of old quirky, rustic, nostalgia meets new modern decoration, artwork and furnishings. The old homestead, has been lovingly restored to it's former glory by the present owner, operators Kevin and Swan. Dating back to 1939, with 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms all named after famous race horse's. There are 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms in the main house and our Red Rum bedroom and bathroom which offers a little more privacy and is separate from the main house. It has it's own vanity basin with tea and coffee making facilities. This room also overlooks the stable yard. 3 of the other bedrooms have split king singles which can be tailored to your specific sleeping requirements. All bedrooms have flat screen TV's, timber blinds and polished hardwood Jarrah flooring.

The fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, fridge freezer, microwave,pots and pans,and gas stove oven, provide all you require to knock up a special feast. There are 2 lounges and a formal dinning room which complete the internal layout of the property.

Outside is a swimming pool with built in spa, large deck area, Balinese gazebo and brick built BBQ with granite bench tops. To the rear of the property are large gum trees and a fruit tree orchard with oranges, lemons, papaya and mango. It's really quite lovely to sit beneath the shade and listen to the babbling brook that meanders through the gardens.

Rothwood is located 9 km's from Perth International airport and a few km's more to the domestic airport which makes it an ideal location for traveler's needing a good nights rest before commencing their journeys either into our great state or to other destinations around the globe.

Perth's Crown casino, the new football stadium and city centre is only 20 minutes away by car and can be reached fairly simply by traveling straight along one major road. Our proximity to Tonkin (.5 km) and Roe (2km's) highways make traveling up North or down to our South West really accessible and will save you precious time on your forwarding journey.

We are at the base of Perth's hills with the town of Kalamuda and Lesmurdie falls only a short trip up the road. There is also a local Perth transport bus stop (50m's) at the front of our property which can take you into Perth or to the afore mentioned Kalamunda.

Rothwood as a venue

At Rothwood we are much more than just a B&B. With all of our fantastic facilities we see Rothwood as an ideal location for business'es to rent the whole property for corporate events, entertaining, team building weekends or even that Christmas party with a difference. It's also a great location for family gatherings, anniversaries, birthdays or of course that special romantic weekend away.

With the Balinese gazebo set slightly higher than the big deck area it makes for a great wedding venue. Of course, this is all subject to availability so be sure to call and book early to avoid disappointment!

Of course we want all of our guests to enjoy their time at Rothwood but we make clear now this is not a party house and strictly no schoolies or unruly people need apply. Thank you, for your understanding in this matter.

Horses at Rothwood

Rothwood is in a perfect spot for interstate or country folk who are bring their horses to Perth and require a nights accommodation for their equestrian counterparts as well as themselves. Set in our grounds we have several lush green paddocks,6 stable with lighting, a wash down area, lunging ring and an olympic sized floodlit dressage arena.

All this and remember your only 20 minutes from Ascot and Belmont races course's.

Lovely property, but not dog friendly.

  • 3 of 5

This property is huge and beautiful with friendly hosts, but is not dog friendly. There is no enclosed yard and we were ask that the dogs do not wee on the lawn. They are allowed inside in the lino areas of the house. Pool and facilities of the house are fantastic, especially the split system aircon a in each room.

Owner's Response: Hi Penelope Thank you for your review. I would just like to clarify for other future guests reading this. Dogs or pets in general are not allowed in the house full stop. Never ever! I made an extreme concession for your elderly dogs and I'm sorry it didn't work out for you. We are indeed looking at our pet policy mainly because dog owners in general don't take any notice of it. Yes we have rules again sorry if you didn't like the rules. Dogs must be kept on leads at all times as we have horse's and chooks on the property. We also have a policy like every other business called "duty of care". We love dogs but rules are rules. We are on 5 acres of land and back onto a wood. So there's no lack of space. I happen to take great care and passion for our gardens, every time a dogs wee's on the lawn it kills the grass. If everyone's dog did it, we wouldn't have a lawn! I'm sure this is not a big deal to most dog owners who are looking for a place to stay. I agree we don't have a separate yard for them this is something we may look into in the future or indeed we may not bother as alot of dog owners do like their pets to stay indoors with them which we do not allow. I hope this helps anyone thinking of staying with a dog. Please feel free to give me a call I'm happy to have a chat. Although having many dog owners stay with us, our property is clearly not for all dog owners. Kind regards Kevin

I booked Rothwood for my overseas family as accommodation for my wedding in Perth. The location was perfect- super close to the airport but away from the mad traffic in its own little retreat near the hills. The property itself was gorgeous, big spacious and clean. We got home grown tomatoes and fresh eggs in the morning as well as any help we required! There was literally everything you could need and Kevin and his friends and family where all so lovely. Everyone fell in love with this big beauty! well worth the money. Thankyou Rothwell Homestays!

Excellent Accommodation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay, rooms are large with the whole place being very tastefully decorated, a credit to the owners. We had a late arrival and were greeted by the owner, who was friendly and nothing was too much. The bed was huge and very comfortable, followed by a wonderful cooked breakfast after rising, which was much appreciated after our late night flight. The location is perfect from airport, only a short drive away. Thank you for our enjoyable stay and late check out :)
