The house was perfect for our needs. It had all the facilities needed for a stay in Perth (air con, and dishwasher were greatly valued) the outdoor shower and bath were an added bonus, not to mention the pretty garden which is not overlooked at all. The location was great too, although we had a car hire for longer journey's, we found the proximity of the bus stop at the end of the road made it easy to travel into central Perth and the surrounding areas such as Fremantle and Subiaco with a dayrider pass. There are cafes and restaurants just a short walk away at the end of the road, and a shopping mall within 5 minutes drive. Annie had kindly provided us with lots basic provisions to get us started which allowed us to settle in before having to go food shopping. It's all the little details that make such a difference. We had a great time, thank you annie.

We had a fantastic stay at Central Character House. It is full of character, beautifully furnished and very well equipped. At the end of the street you will find a plethora of cafes and restaurants and we ate often at the Prophet. This house more than met our needs and goes to the top of our place to stay list when in Perth. Highly Recommended

I would like to thank annie for her warm hospitality service. It is an awesome experience to stay there especially travelling with my 17 month old child for the first time.
The location is centralised with easy access to Coles and Woolies with short driving distance. It is about 7 mins drive to city and 15 mins drive to the airport.
The self-contained house is cozy and comfortable to stay even with temperature dropped to 10 degree celsius in one of the nights. The garden is beautiful. The bushes in the courtyard are neatly trimmed and well taken care of.
Overall, we have enjoyed our stay. Thank you very much!
Lovely home and an oasis in the east victoria park

We experienced wonderful warm hospitality from our host annie for one week at the start of our holiday over good friday and easter day. The house is beautifully appointed and vey homely.
We found the location of Character House superb; only 10 minutes drive to Perth City.
Access to the Swan Valley (a fantastic scenic area to explore) and the Fremantle was very easy. Would highly recommend staying here and hope to return.
Would you recommend this vacation rental to a friend?

I booked this house for my family to stay during my wedding day. Every parts of this house speaks the beauty of victorian style. The house has played an important part for me because I did my wedding make up preparation & photo shots here . Every part of the house either kitchen, the bed rooms, living room, the garden are great spots to take photos. Thank you annie for making our day lovely & I love your bed because it was super comfortable. It helped me to rest very well the night before my wedding day.

We arrived in Perth after a long flight from Vancouver, Canada. The age ranges of the passengers were from 10 to 75 plus. The home was better than what we thought it would be. Annie was the hostess with the mostess. She went above and beyond to ensure that we had what we needed in the home and even offered us the use of her private residence area if we wanted.
With the breakfast items, the character of the home, the convenient location, the accomodating nature of the hostess and of course her big smile, how can anyone give this place anything less than a 5. I only hope that annie has her flat screen TV now (the only thing my kids missed). Read more

This was our second visit to Perth and this beautifully furnished character cottage. It has such a sense of warmth and style down to the beautiful cotton bathrobes and the generous food provisions. Interesting art work and comfortable surroundings. So easy to walk to our favourite restaurant the Prophet this really is a home from home.

We often visit Perth to see family, but have been searching for the perfect place . . . and now we have found it. With a great location, cozy furnishings, and a gracious host we will try to stay here upon return visits. Annie even prepared the second bedroom for our toddler son, with books and, games, and rubber ducks for the bath! Read more

We were very happy with our choice of the cottage as a base for our stay in Perth to catch up with family. The furnishings and appliances were of a high standard and annie, the owner, very generous and welcoming. The cottage is in a lovely area with lots of old cottage and close to shops, Perth city and the River. There is a busy road on one side of the house but we found that the traffic noise was not an issue at night. It was cold and wet for most of the time we were there but the house was warm and a lovely place to come home to at the end of the day. We would almost certainly want to stay there again when we next go to Perth.

Home away from home

This is our second visit to Character House in one year and we absolutely love staying here. We own a guest house 3 hrs south in Margaret River and are quite particular where we stay on our visits to Perth and so we were very lucky when we came across this little gem. The location is perfect for access to the city and within walking distance there are some wonderful cafes & restaurants The Profit being our favourite!). What we really love is the classy decor & comfort of this cottage, it is so well equipped and the attention to detail is what makes this place a home away from home. From the lovely fresh garden flowers, crisp bed linen & towels, selection of teas & coffees, magazines & info on all the local attractions and amenities. The owner is delightful and very welcoming, nothing is too much trouble and will assist you with any of your wants and needs without any bother or stress. We always have a most relaxing stay and love sitting on the porch with a glass of wine during the summers evenings. We highly recommend this wonderful property when visiting Perth.
