“Fantastic stay at Istana Alfred Cove”
Our party of 11 had a brilliant time during our stay at Alfred Cove. With a fully setup games room and karaoke room, the kids were constantly entertained. The fully functional kitchen allowed to make home cooked dinners which was important since we had 5 kids with varying ages. We even managed a nice BBQ dinner with their outdoor BBQ which was perfect during a cold winter night. One of the best part of our stay was the great hospitality that Douglas and Shirley bestowed upon us, patiently answering all our queries and accommodating any request we had within their means and even managed to lend us a picnic mat when we decided on an impromptu picnic. All in all a superb stay at Alfred Cove and highly recommended to anyone planning to stay in Perth.
Response from the owner It's been an absolute pleasure hosting Mindy and her lovely family. We are delighted to hear that all amenities were used and enjoyed to the fullest by both the adults and children. There was certainly quality family bonding time in the house which was spacious to accommodate your needs. Thank you for choosing to stay at Istana Alfred Cove. We look forward to your return stay in the near future. Kind regards Shirley and Douglas Owner / Manager
“friendly and welcoming hosts”
Had a very wonderful stay at Istana Alfred Cove with great location, the owner is very nice and helpful with check in and out. Kids were entertained with games and entertaining area, will highly recommend to friends and family
Love the location and amenities provided. The kids enjoyed the place especially the games provided. My parents love the view and easy access to the park every morning. Thanks for the service and off course your kind help in lending us your own set of hot pot utensils. Definitely one of the best holiday I had so far. Great work Shirley !!! Thanks.
“Great host who will take care of us well”
Shirley was quick to respond and very helpful to our large group of 6 adults and 4 children. We needed groceries as we planned to cook each night, and true to their promise, Shirley bought our long list of groceries and diapers before we arrived so that we could cook dinner for our kids once we checked in. This saved us precious time at the Supermarket especially on day 1 of arrival. In addition to the bedrooms, we spent lots of time in the dining, family room and movie room. The men and kids loved the games room - ping pong table, pinball machines etc. We had a little accident where one of the kids fell and had a deep cut to the lips. Shirley was immediately contactable and had a number for an emergency doctor whom we could call. So good to have her direct us to the right help when we needed it most. We also needed to borrow her baby bathtub for our trip to Margaret River. She was most obliging and that made the next segment of our trip more manageable for the kids. Thanks Shirley for a most memorable stay at Istana Alfred Cove.
Response from the owner Thank you too for being wonderful guests Min-Yi. Very happy to know that everything has worked out with the accommodation. We always try to provide a smooth-sailing process for our valued guests whose more important concern is to enjoy the accommodation and the sights and sounds of Perth. We offer a free shopping service for grocery and meal purchase prior to check-in, hoping that this will add to the convenience of what Istana Alfred Cove already provides. Glad it was to you. Thank you again for your patronage. We look forward to your return in the near future. Shirley and Douglas Owner / Manager
“Excellent Place to Stay”
Our group of 8 golfers were stay at Istana Alfred Cove for 4 nights during October 2014. The house was clean and well kept. We like the kitchen most as it caters for Asian people need. Owner Shirley is very friendly. We certainly will book this vacation rental when we visit Perth again.
Response from the owner Thank you very much for taking time to write a review describing your stay experience at Istana Alfred Cove. We are happy that your group of 8 golfers had a great time enjoying golf and the camaraderie, especially with your friends who live in Perth. We'll certainly welcome back with open arms, you and your friends. Thank you again for choosing to stay with us. It has certainly been a pleasure! Kind regards Shirley & Douglas
“I Miss Perth and Istana Alfred Cove!”
My friends and I had a fantastic time at Istana Alfred Cove! It is centrally located and has spacious car park space. It is also located close to a Catholic church. The house is tastefully and thoughtfully furnished. For instance, it comes with a multi plug USB charger suitable for multiple gadgets. The house is also very cosy and our favorite spot was the 2nd living room by the heater with super comfortable couches. Yes, the house has 2 huge living rooms and 4 spacious bedrooms! The entire place is very clean, neat and well stocked with groceries for breakfast. I was also expecting a courier package to arrive and Shirley waited for it and the package only arrived late afternoon which means I would have had to spend the entire day waiting if Shirley had not waited for the package! Thank you! If you are a dog or pet lover, the dogs are also a bundle of laughs and very entertaining. Not to worry if you are afraid of dogs as I only got up close and personal with them because I requested for it. The dogs are very well behaved and were never in our way. A very chill, comfortable and relaxing environment and I would certainly recommend Istana Alfred Cove to friends and family : )
First and foremost, the layout of the house was splendid. It was very spacious and had a small backyard for us to hang out and chill.The house was well-equipped with many facilities for us to use; namely - a karaoke area, mahjong table and a BBQ grill. There wasn't any short of any activities for us to do in the house. We were also able to wash our clothes and there was a dryer too! The house also came equipped with a heated blanket. That was a life-saver as the temperature dipped to below 10degrees in the wee hours of the morning. The hosts/owners were very friendly and ensured that we had everything we needed. The hospitality that they provided was top-notch. We couldn't ask for anybody better to make us feel at home. If I were to head back to Perth, i would definitely choose this place again!
“Best Experience yet”
In the past few years, my wife and I have travelled to Perth more than a dozen times. Sometimes just the two of us and sometimes with a group of golfing buddies (this time, we were 11 golfers). On each trip, we would stay at a different venue. However, we don't think we would want to do that anymore. We guess we have found a near perfect place at Istana alfred cove - Thanks to Douglas & Shirley for giving us the opportunity to experience the splendour of their place. The house is beautifully furnished, spacious and squeaky clean. The house is well stocked and fully equipped just like a first class hotel and if not better!! It also has a large driveway. Located along Canning Highway and next to Swan River, it has easy access to public transport and all necessary amenities are nearby. It is conveniently located for travel to most places in Perth. Staying in Istana alfred Cove saw never a dull moment!! Besides the good company of our golf kakis, we had mahjong, table tennis, karaoke, big screen TV, video and assorted games to keep us occupied...(even a piano and 3 guitars!) Douglas & Shirley are a warm, friendly, caring and accommodating couple. They did their best to attend to all our needs and requirements. They went out of their way to welcome us at the gate and showed us around their beautiful home. We always had replenished stocks of bread and fruits during our stay. On some nights we even had 'tau huey' and homemade apple strudel sent to us. They were always available when we needed assistance. This lovely couple even prepared for us a sumptuous steamboat dinner and late checkout and dinner on our last day. Thank you Douglas & Shirley for making our stay such a pleasant and wonderful experience and for providing us a 'home away from home' for seven nights. I would like to think that we have made 2 more new good friends in Perth,,,Do call on us when you are next in Singapore. Cheers! Malcolm Singapore

Iac is indeed a beautiful home...so well furnished, fully equipped and immaculately fresh and clean. Centrally located along the Canning Highway...easily access to places in Perth and all necessary amenities are within walking distance. A perfect homemaker, who thought of everything...well stocked of F&B..breakfast; the next morning - no worries...Wow! this lovely couple can cook!!! We had a 'shirleylicious' steamboat on our 2nd cold night,,,just love the homemade chillipadi sambal...superb!! We rounded up our stay with late check out and a singapore style dinner prepared by D&S...it; was fantastic!! and BTW thanks Douglas for the 'tau huey' and the apple strudels..they were simply yummy!! We all have a jolly good time...7 days of golfing, good homecooked food, cozy n comfortable beds...the guys enjoyed playing mahjong, karaoke, big screen TV, video games each night (lazy to go out) Helloo.. people..our search for stay in Perth finally stops here in Istana alfred cove...mmm...missing the place already!!

God bless maria Singapore
“Great place to stay and helpful landlord”
First time for me traveling to Perth for golf. It had been a nice stay there. House was clean and neat. All facilities were readily avail. Even bread, coffee and fruits were provided FOC. What's best is free calls to singapore! Landlord lady was very helpful as she helped me to activate the prepaid card that I bought in singapore. They also regularly pop by to see if there were anything we need. Highly recommended for families and friends grps to Perth for holiday.
