The space

This beachside gem is only for the over 50's ( see below for deal). The holiday flat is separate and private in a genuine older style beach house with traditional polished timber floors. You will love the quiet location, read our very happy reviews from overseas and Aust guests, happy to avoid the many rental agents listing beach units on Airbnb. We the owners are on site.
Ideal for those who enjoy brisk walks, the ocean, fresh air, peace and quiet.
Enjoy a nearby shady park with ocean vistas, great for our sunsets !
Location is one street back from a pristine white sand, turquoise ocean swimming beach. Because it's residential, you sleep only to the soft sounds of breaking waves. The area is amongst the most sought after addresses.
A short walk along the ocean front brings you to cafes, restaurants, take aways, shops and a golf course. There are 4 beaches to choose from with differing facilities. Nearby Broome Street (walk to the supermarket) is a very wide avenue of majestic pines, quite unique to this grand old suburb.
Attached to our home, this holiday flat has it's own private off street entrance. Space consists of entrance lounge/ dining adjoining a small fully equipped kitchen. A separate studio bedroom has a queen size double bed.
This room also has a table and chairs by the windows to enjoy the attractive outlook towards the ocean. There are small glimpses between neighbouring houses to the sea.
A spare fold up bed is in the lounge. Both a duvet and cellular blankets are provided. The small bathroom has a full size bath with flexible shower head. Please note that we only cater for guests where at least one is in their 50's or more (max 2 guests).
1 EXTRA NIGHT FREE (when paying for 4 or more nights), notify Chris direct when booking through Airbnb. We are very flexible on early check in and late check out. Please mention your requirements when booking.

Guest access

This older style Beach Flat is fully self contained and no amenities are shared. It features it's own side entrance off the street. There is no outside area for guests, however there is a very attractive shaded park overlooking the ocean only 120 metres away. Ideal to view the Indian Ocean sunset.
Sorry, no smoking on the property please.
Free wifi is available, we ask to keep downloading to a reasonable level.
Guest car parking is off-street on the grass verge at the front of the residence.

Great location and friendly & helpful host. Could do with an interior designer who could really optimize the space for visitors but very good as is. Clean, safe, and bit of home-away-from home. Really appreciate the welcome fruit and supplies in the fridge!

Many thanks Linh, glad you enjoyed. Re. the interior design: Its deliberately quirky to retain the traditional holiday flat feel. Comfortable with all 'mod cons'.

It's a charming and comfortable property, good access to beach and amenities. Our first Air bnb stay and the hosts will be hard to follow.

Thanks for a lovely stay at your place. We were grateful for the fruit, bread, yoghurt, milk and butter provided as we arrived late at night and this was great for breakfast the next morning. The flat was well fitted out with everything we needed and beach towels and hair dryer were provided which helped us with our luggage limits. The washing machine came in handy and we were able to cook if we wanted to. The bed and pillows were comfy and the train was a short walk- timetables were helpful and maps of local walks and shop locations etc were very useful. We really enjoyed our visit and would highly recommend this to others. Chris and Di were great hosts and we also appreciated the late check out to coincide with our flights home. Many Thanks

Thank you both. You are always very welcome. I would remind others that while the train is about 12 minutes walk, the bus is just around the corner connecting with Train stations.

This Cottesloe getaway is close to the beach and walking distance to well priced good eating places and restaurants. It's a doable walk to the train and therfore close to the tourist hub of Fremantle. Shopping for supplies is also doable walking. The hosts are really nice and very helpful.

I and my partner Diane are a retired couple enjoying living alongside this wonderful beach at North Cottesloe. We exercise on the beach mornings, with a dip in the ocean after. Di plays tennis while I am an exhibiting painter. Both born in Perth, we have lived elsewhere, and often travel overseas. Favourite places are France, Amalfi Coast, S.W.England, W.Canada, New York and Russia. We have motored and camped pretty well everywhere in Oz and N. Zealand. Recently in London and Barcelona we enjoyed staying as guests through Airbnb bookings. We belong to a book club, and are regular arthouse movie goers. Taste in music is jazz swing, and romantic classical. Visually, we run to Impressionist, Cubist and Art Deco. Our home one street back from the ocean is a traditional old style comfortable beach house, with
polished jarrah wood floors, light and airy. Most would call it arty!
We cater solely for over 55's in the beach flat annexe, with many return bookings from guests who've found our location ideal while visiting their families. With grandkids in London, we are very much tuned into this scenario. It's a bit like being part of a very friendly world wide club!
Within easy walking there are beachside restaurants, cafes, parks overlooking the ocean, shops and public transport to Perth or historic Fremantle.
It's always fun to share any local knowledge with our guests.
Yes indeed, we like to receive contact through email or sms, with any questions you may have before booking.
