THE DAISY HOUSE
House | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
The Daisy House is one of Subiaco's most unique properties, being designed and hand built by award winning Perth architect Brian Klopper in 1978.
Featured in “A Short History of Western Australian Architecture” by Geoffrey London, the Daisy House was one of the first homes in Western Australia to use recycled bricks in its construction and amazingly it also uses old steel railway line from the 1850?s as floor joists and door and window lintels. Old wooden telephone poles and giant wooden beams salvaged from the old Busselton jetty in our south west are also used throughout as structural features. The house takes its name from a beautiful large daisy leadlight window designed and built by Brian. It is truly an intriguing building.
The Daisy House is a 2 storey dwelling with 2 queen beds upstairs and is located in the western end of Park Street, only 200 metres from all the facilities of Rokeby Road.
Rokeby Road is one of Perth's favourite shopping areas with restaurants, coffee shops, hotels, fashion, supermarkets and fresh food markets, all within a very short walk from the Daisy House.
Our properties are all fully "self catered" - once you arrive and settle in we won't interrupt you with cleaning and servicing. If you would like your bed made and your house cleaned, please let us know and we would be happy to come and do your housework for you at a cost of $100 per time. If you just want a quick tidy up and your beds made, it would be $40 per hour.
The Daisy House is also just several doors from a beautiful small pocket park which is a mecca for locals, with their families and dogs, and is home to a fairly significant local bird population. Families of kookaburras frequent the park often. The park is lovely and peaceful during the day, becoming busier later in the day, and then peaceful again early evening. It is a nice spot to sit with a cold drink on a warm day and enjoy the bbq facilities and commune with the locals.
There is also a nice roomy courtyard garden at the Daisy House with it's own bbq if you wish to dine or relax at “home”.
The Daisy House – a very unique alternative to the hotel lifestyle.

The Western Australia region
The city of Perth is known as one of the most isolated in the world, mainly due to the sheer size of this beautiful country of ours, Australia. This isolation ensures we have some of the most pristine landscape in the world. Our multitude of endless white sandy beaches are a truly wonderful way to see us at our best, and only a 15 minute drive from the centre of the city. Watch out for our famous hungry sharks though :) Perth is situated on a large expanse of river land called the Swan River, which meanders comfortably inland from the historic port city of Fremantle. Perth City itself is situated some 15 kms upstream from Fremantle and the river then continues it's way up through our beautiful Swan Valley, complete with it's vibrant wine industry, and then into the picturesque Perth hills area. Axiom on Hay is situated only a few minutes walk to magnificent Kings Park, which thanks to some very forward thinking ancestral city fathers, is a large 1000 acre tract of natural bushland, preserved in it's native state, right on the edge of CBD. It is criss crossed with a multitude of walking and cycling paths and is also home to several award winning restaurants and cafes, in several locations throughout the park.
Perth, Perth Metro Area
Without fail, the best part about Subiaco, and in particular this area of Subiaco, is the close proximity to all the services you could want or need. Plus the friendly local community. You will be nestled in amongst historic residential homes, large and small, fancy and quaint, strong and remodelled or slightly worn and a bit crooked - the area abounds in character. Full of restaurants, cafes, shops, parks and friendly locals, you will love your stay in Subiaco, whether for business or holiday.
In the heart of older Subiaco, Park Street runs east to Kings Park and west to Rokeby Road. It is only a short walk to Patterson Stadium (formerly Subiaco Oval), 2km to the Perth CBD and 5km to delightful Matilda Bay and the University of Western Australia. Also the Perth Convention Centre, the new Perth Arena complex, the Perth Theatre Centre, His Majesty's Theatre, the Perth Museum and the Art Gallery of Western Australia are all just a short distance away.
The house is also located centrally and close to 5 major hospitals – St John of God, King Edward Memorial, Princess Margaret Children's Hospital, Sir Charles Gardiner and Royal Perth.
Trains and buses are also close by for that visit to any of Perth's fabulous iconic pristine beaches or perhaps the historic port city of Fremantle.

Stayed here over Xmas, had the best time, everything was in first class condition, so near shops and cafes, walked all over Subiaco shops and returned to Daisy Cottage exhausted. Once inside the gate… More
