“Perfect Stay”
Reviewed 8 November 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Istana Alfred Cove was perfect in every way: it was spacious, well-stocked and even came with gaming facilities! Shirley and Douglas were wonderful hosts, even stocking the kitchen with instant noodles and drinks.

The location was perfect, a short drive away from the city and everywhere else we needed to go.

Would definitely recommend this place to anyone who is visiting Perth, especially with a large group!

“Perfect place for families who are looking for a comfortable place to stay with kids without feeling bored!”
Reviewed 9 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We have booked both ECCO and Istana Alfred Cove for our stay in perth. And i assure any one who has made their bookings with them that its definitely one of the best choice you make for accomodation in Perth. Shirley was very friendly and she took pains to show us around the house. We were all impressed by how well-stocked the kitchen was! The place is clean and roomy and there is even entertainment room for the adults, and a family room for families with kids! There's also this space where the kids get to play pingpong and soccer table! Our kids really love the place and they look forward to their night time entertainment when all the activities end at 5pm!

Istana Alfred Cove is very conveniently located as we have no problem getting around in our rental car. As we were catchcing a late flight, Shirley was kind enough to allow us a late checkout so that we have time to take a shower after our last min shopping. We definitely will recommend this place to our friends planning their family trips to WA. In fact, many are already asking me for details. And Shirley, like i say, i hope to cya soon!

“Perth & Istana Alfred Cove...here we come !”
Reviewed 29 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

My husband and I, together with our two sons, daughter-in-law and our grand-daughter of 18 months-old had the pleasure of staying at Istana Alfred Cove during our recent 5 days trip to Perth. As this was our first time renting a house for our family vacation, we literally did not know what to expect. Upon arrival at the house, we were warmly greeted by owner Shirley. Shirley took pains to show us the logistics of the house, ensuring also that we knew where basic necessities were kept lest we needed to do some cooking for family meals. Might I say, I was pleasantly surprised by how well-stocked the kitchen was – not only with the ‘tools’ for cooking but also the availability of basic sauces! To enable our family a headstart upon arrival, Shirley had even stocked a loaf each of white, multigrain and wholemeal bread, butter, jam, quick noodles and fresh milk in the fridge! The attention to details in this area is indeed refreshing.

Our family occupied 3 rooms of the house in total, with only the master bedroom having the attached bathroom. The other two rooms are served by a common toilet and bathroom. The rooms are spacious and adequately equipped. We loved the fact that there is free internet available.

Istana Alfred Cove is a great place to stay for the family. It is conveniently located and with most visitors to Perth renting a car at their disposal anyway, getting about from the house is a breeze. What has made this stay special for us is also the fact that the owners had been very proactive in seeing to our needs/requests and sharing some ‘tips’ on seeing Perth. We definitely will recommend this place to our friends planning their family trips to WA. On behalf of my family, thank you Shirley and Douglas for sharing with us this wonderful experience at Istana Alfred Cove! All the best, christine

“Beautiful Home Away from Home”
Reviewed 24 September 2014 for a stay in July 2014

My stay at the Istana exceeded my expectations. Greeted by the owners, Douglas and Shirely upon our arrival. The kitchen was well stocked with condiments and ETC. Attention to detail was given to put together everything The Istana has to offer. Instructions to operating the tv, wifi,etc was so clear you wouldn't have the chance to go wrong. Overall i enjoyed my stay and will go back to The istana.
