Ferndale Cottage - garden retreat

Bedrooms 3
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 1 - 3 nights


About the property

Ferndale cottage is located in a safe, quiet suburb. It is just a very short walk to the Canning Regional Park. You can walk along paths through the bush to Canning River Cafe for breakfast, lunch or anytime for a coffee and cake.

I also have a 7 seater car available through Drivemycar.com.au

Westfield Carousel Shopping centre is a five minute drive away. Browse the many shops and then stop for lunch to rest your feet after a few hours of retail therapy.

Or get on to South Street and head to one of the beaches around Coogee and South Fremantle. The drive is an easy 20 minutes.

Hop on a train at Cannington Station and take a 20 minute train ride into Perth City.

If you are visiting on a business trip the cottage is central to Perth city or the industrial areas of Welshpool and O Connor and the Port of Fremantle. Of course it is also only 20 minutes to the airport in heavy traffic.

Our cottage has three bedrooms, bathroom with a terrific shower. The water pressure here is fantastic. Relax in the garden bath also. It is a very deep old claw foot with a new finish and hot and cold running water?

The kitchen is fully fitted out with all dining and cooking utensils as well as a coffee machine and a juicer. There is a wonderful Italian fruit and vegetable market a few minutes away.

Ducted evaporative air conditioning will keep you feeling cool in summer.

Welcome pack for bookings 7 days or over And the all important eating

If you book for a week or more there will be a welcome pack of 2 bottles of wine, cheese platter and flowers.

If you are flying in late at night I can arrange supper for you

Or ..... if you are flying in on the red-eye I can organize some breakfast so you can fill up, have a shower and then just stretch out and sleep.

When you wake up to the new day you will find plenty of fresh white towels, coffee machine, dishwasher, FOXTEL, a selection of DVDs, books and games and of course wifi. Pretty much -holiday stuff.

If you are hungry and don't feel like cooking, a very good Chinese restaurant delivers at night, also Crust Pizza and a nice Thai and Indian restaurant. For eating out or business lunches or dinners the Craftsman at Carousel shopping centre serves a very good meal with impeccable service. Also the Crown Casino complex and Perth city are only 10 k from the cottage.

Chill out and relax relax relax

Relaxing Bath in the garden

For relaxing there is an antique cast iron bath with hot and cold running water in a section of the side patio. Fill it up with bubbles and soak your cares away with a glass of wine looking out to trees. Or with your eyes closed listen to the birds twittering.

Swimming pool access

Or have a swim in the solar heated pool in summer. It is gorgeous at night floating around looking up at the stars. Jump in after a hard day's sightseeing.

After the kids are in bed

Or ........ get back to basics - warm up in the front courtyard huddled around the open fire with a glass of red and a cheese selection.

And ..... there is a luxury model bidet seat installed on the toilet so you don't even have to wipe your bottom.

A great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The property was wonderfully appointed. Apart from all mod cons, there was nothing needed to settle in. Fruit in the bowl, milk and bread in the frig just to name a few of the things that were available. Very happy to recommend this property

Lovely jome

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Ferndale. The owner was generous and most helpful. The house is lovely and fully equipped with all the things we needed.

We arrived late and the owner got the house air conditioned and lighted up the gate so that we could find the house easily. A lovely bouquet and fruit platter greeted us as we enter. Will definitely book again if we return.

A wonderful Stay :) Highly Recommended :)

  • 5 of 5

Lyn is a lovely lady who did everything she could to make our stay a pleasant happy one. The house is lovely, and we felt right at home there. It is full of nice individual touches. The beds are comfortable and the cooling system much appreciated in the summer heat. The pool is great, and we enjoyed it every day. It's an 11min walk thru the park to a very good food shop and bus stop. It's a quiet area. Lyn even provided a tricycle for the kids (and me :) ). If you stay here, do try the outdoor bath/shower, it's really cool in the beautiful outdoor setting Lyn has created. Thank you Lyn, we really did love our stay, and we very much appreciate all your efforts to make our stay a good one. If we visit Perth again you may well see us again :)
