Beautiful Location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this gorgeous location. Sunny Perth provided the perfect weather and we spent most of the time sitting in the sun on a wonderful location on the river watching the boats sail by. This home provides everything you need and we appreciate the personal care provided.

A Well Equipped Sanctuary ! 3 thumbs up !

  • 5 of 5

Photos don't do justice to this property as it actually is bigger and nicer than in the pictures. This is actually a 3+1 bedroom as they can install a bed in the gym room. Every room is very clean (cleaner than my house and I have 5 maids back home) and this house is equipped with anything that you would need during your stay plus some extras. The view to the river is very serene and beautiful, and across the river there are some lovely trees and grass as a nice backdrop. Just to the right of house, you will find a nice walking trail that leads you to a nice playground for the kids. Very good value for your money, we will come back for sure !

It really is a retreat

  • 5 of 5

We really loved our stay at Riverfront Retreat. It's a beautiful big house that really felt like a home away from home. Everything you could ever need is in the house and we found it to be absolutely immaculately presented. Jennifer really has thought of everything. The location is nice and central. You definatelty need a car, but that's a given no matter where in Perth you stay. We can't wait to return, and probably wouldn't stay anywhere else now we've found this place!

Wonderful location

  • 4 of 5

Our stay was excellent. Kids loved the location and facilities were fantastic. Owners were very helpful and accommodating. Shame about not being able to use pool though. Apart from that, would definitely recommend property.

Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5

Photos do not do justice to this beautiful property situated on the picturesque Swan River. The house is modern, spacious and tastefully appointed with all the necessary features, plus much more, for a comfortable stay and situated conveniently. Reservation of this property on our next trip to Perth will be a priority.
