Frequently Asked Questions
Do you allow animals?
Get in touch, and we can have a chat about your pet.
What about public transport?
One of the key aspects of our properties is that they are all well located with respect to public transport. Perth trains and buses are generally very reliable and there are plenty of services which will take you into the Perth CBD. We are happy to advise of transport links to other locations (for example, universities) - please just ask when you enquire.
How do I book a property?
The best way to go about booking a property is to send us an email with your requirements and your move in and move out dates. (If you have not yet confirmed these dates, approximate dates are fine.) Jen will assist you in the paperwork preparation and arrangements to deposit the bond and first two weeks' rent into our account. Once we have received this, your stay is confirmed.
How long do you rent the properties for?
Our minimum term is three months, but we are more than happy to rent for longer - our longest tenant stayed in one of our properties for two years.
What about air conditioning/heating?
All our properties have reverse cycle air conditioners (ie. both refrigerated cooling for summer, and heating for winter) installed in the living areas. Pedestal fans are provided for the bedrooms for those warm summer nights. In addition, an electric heater is provided for the cooler weather.
Is housecleaning included in the rent?
No, however weekly or fortnightly cleaning can be arranged for an additional cost - just get in touch with Jen to enquire about any cleaning arrangements. One-off 'end of lease' cleans can also be arranged, if you are just too busy to do this yourself but want ensure your bond is returned in full.
Are the properties close to Perth city?
All our properties are located north of the Perth central business district, and are close to public transport.
Glendalough and Osborne Park are both very close to town, with the nearest train station being Glendalough train station, two stops north on the Butler line. If you're driving, it can take as little as ten minutes to get into Perth. Balcatta is a little further out (at about 12kms from the Perth CBD), but is still close to excellent public transport links and major arteries into the city. Generally, it takes no longer than about 25 minutes to travel to or from Balcatta to Perth in peak hour traffic.
What about shops, parks, and schools?
All our properties are close to local shopping centres and schools, and are literally only a few minutes' walk from a range of parks, including Glendalough Open Space.
