We loved our stay at Phylis's cottage. The location was really great for the kids with the most gorgeous park just at the end of the street. Walking distance to cafes, supermarket so we didn't have any need for a car. Phylis was really lovely and went out of her way to make us feel at home. The beds were comfy and the kitchen was really well appointed. We would stay again for sure.

Shelton Park presents a fantastic base for a trip to Pearth. Lovely community feel, safe and great food within walking distance. The train station to central Perth is 5 mins away, and roads in out and through Perth are easily accessed

Check in was very easy. Parking easy. A very clean comfy private home. The beds are very comfy. Appreciated the hot water bottle !! Close to Hollywood Hospital and cafes. The best Airbnb we have stayed in.

Phyll was a great host, very considerate and understanding and responsive to our needs throughout our stay. Excellent communication as required. House is in a lovely location in Shenton Park next to a gorgeous park and play area for the children and a quick walk to shops, cafes and transport.

Well equipped, good location, near to park, shops and trainline. Smaller than expected, felt crowded with 2 small children. Had some difficulties with host due to an error I had made with the booking. This was eventually resolved by the resolution centre but unfortunately overshadowed our stay.

Response from Phyllis:
I'm quite amazed at the issues raised by Carla. WiFi is consistent, cleaning is always done to a high standard. The fee dispute was finally resolved through following Airbnb's recommended procedure. Unfortunately some things were left damaged. This is the first time in over a year that hosting guests has been difficult.

We really couldn't have asked for a better experience after having spent 5 nights in Shenton Cottage. This place is an absolute gem of a find in a beautiful part of Perth. A quiet, leafy neighbourhood but within walking distance to some of the best breakfast and coffee spots (we recommend Excelsior!) and close to some beautiful parks which our 5 year old son could have spent all 5 days in - as could we. Phyllis is the most welcoming, thoughtful host, nothing was too much trouble. The cottage is cosy and well equipped with a gas fire in the living room to keep you warm on chilly evenings (each bedroom had radiators too but we found we didn't need them once you're in bed). We really couldn't fault Shenton cottage and would love to come back again one day.
