Our family of 4 stayed in this apartment for a week in early January. Early confusion about which apartment was actually ours for the week was quickly cleared up with a phone call to Leigh, who was very accommodating with our requests and responded to questions timely.
The apartment itself was located on the first floor of the building, easily accessible by stairs or elevator. Even taking the elevator, there are about 6 stairs, but very easy to climb. The location of East Perth is great. Located within close proximity to both Optus Stadium and the WACA, with an IGA supermarket practically next door, as well as a couple of restaurants. Secure parking in the basement also available. Perth is not a large city, so we were within walking distance of central Perth, although it is probably a 2 to 2.5km walk, so you need a degree of fitness.
The apartment itself suited our needs perfectly. 2 single beds in one bedroom, with a queen sized bed in the other. Comfortable lounge suite to sit on, and whilst others have complained about the television, we didn't find it nearly as bad as made out - sometimes it would lose the picture, but only for a few seconds, and on some channels - appeared to be more of an antenna issue possibly, rather than tv.
On the downside, the apartment does have a bit of a musty smell to it, which is extremely strong in the laundry, the air conditioner in the lounge also drips water after it has been on for a whilst. Cooking utensils are quite basic, and don't necessarily match the pots and pans - eg, no wooden spoon! Beds and pillows quite comfortable. The apartment was generally quite clean when we entered also.
All in all however, the above shouldn't detract from what is really a very convenient place to stay. Quiet at night in a good neighborhood, with good facilities.
The Terrace house is perfect for a getaway holiday. It has everything you need. The location is fantastic. It’s so close to the shops and the beach. Free CAT is also around the corner. Couldn’t ask for more.
