The apartment is thoroughly cleaned before each guest's arrival. For those staying longer than a week, guests have the choice of doing their own housework for privacy, or allowing us to come in once a week to change the bedding, wash sinks and toilets etc.
We live in the main house on the same block, so we are usually available instantly if you need us. We will leave you in peace if you wish, but if you want to chat, find out more about the surroundings, or even join in a game of cards, we're very approachable.
My wife and I are retired business owners with a married daughter living nearby with 2 young girls, and a married son with 2 boys who lives in Japan. We have lived in Perth for the last 17 years but originally came from the North of England.
We are not pub/nightclub people but love the theatre, museums and travel. Now that we are retired we are travelling more without being tied to our business as we were in the past.
Both my daughter and I love F1 racing, a passion definately not shared by my wife. Hence my travels always seem to fit in a trip to a motor race or at least a motor musuem, as long as my wife has some cultural events to take part in. We love theatre, cards, board games, reading, handicrafts; and try to keep fit by swimming once a week, cycling, walking and even a bit of yoga in front of the TV.
