“Excellent” Mullaloo Retreat was a lovely start to our new life in Australia as migrants .The accommodation was superb and in a very good location. The owners were on hand if needed. They graciously pointed us in the right direction for local real estate agents, car hire amenities etc which saved us a lot of ground work. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. It was a great transition and eased us gently into our new life in Oz.
“First class self contained accommodation for couples” The property is ideally placed closed to excellent safe beaches and other facilities. The accommodation itself is well maintained, clean and with all the facilities in first class order. The apartment itself is independent of the main house.
The rental also permits use of a Patio area with access to the excellent shared below ground swimming pool, adult bicycles, snorkelling equipment etc. Use of an integral double garage is also included. The owners live on site and are attentive to any requests. A thoroughly recommendable holiday destination.
“Best Experience yet” In the past few years, my wife and I have travelled to Perth more than a dozen times. Sometimes just the two of us and sometimes with a group of golfing buddies (this time, we were 11 golfers).
On each trip, we would stay at a different venue. However, we don't think we would want to do that anymore. We guess we have found a near perfect place at Istana alfred cove - Thanks to Douglas & Shirley for giving us the opportunity to experience the splendour of their place.
The house is beautifully furnished, spacious and squeaky clean. The house is well stocked and fully equipped just like a first class hotel and if not better!! It also has a large driveway. Located along Canning Highway and next to Swan River, it has easy access to public transport and all necessary amenities are nearby. It is conveniently located for travel to most places in Perth.
Staying in Istana alfred Cove saw never a dull moment!! Besides the good company of our golf kakis, we had mahjong, table tennis, karaoke, big screen TV, video and assorted games to keep us occupied...(even a piano and 3 guitars!)
Douglas & Shirley are a warm, friendly, caring and accommodating couple. They did their best to attend to all our needs and requirements. They went out of their way to welcome us at the gate and showed us around their beautiful home. We always had replenished stocks of bread and fruits during our stay. On some nights we even had 'tau huey' and homemade apple strudel sent to us. They were always available when we needed assistance.
This lovely couple even prepared for us a sumptuous steamboat dinner and late checkout and dinner on our last day.
Thank you Douglas & Shirley for making our stay such a pleasant and wonderful experience and for providing us a 'home away from home' for seven nights. I would like to think that we have made 2 more new good friends in Perth,,,Do call on us when you are next in Singapore.
