we intend to be in Perth in mid February for the birth of our son's and his partners first child and are looking for 2 weeks unit style accommodation somewhere around north Perth. we have looked on the internet but conflicting reviews about the same premises have made us very wary. Does anyone know of a location they could recommend
Thanks john y

Maybe a cabin at Karrinyup Waters resort.
Short 10min drive to north perth from the resort.

Yup, Karinyup Waters is great! We were there a few weeks ago, in a whizbang, and they were very helpful. Nice spot too!

WTH is a whizbang?? Is that something you drive, or something you camp in?

Gidday

sorry to be picky but you be a bit more specific? Do you mean the suburb North Perth or anywhere north ofPerth. That covers a big area

February is a great time to be here, fine and warm and great beach weather

cheers

No worries John

I know some people who use the Northbridge Hotel, but not for two weeks and I see you are looking for unit accomm.

cheers

Hi John,

Have you thought about doing a house-sit? Free accommodation in return for looking after someones house, pets, potplants. No requirement to be home all the time. Here is a site that we use to find sitters when we are away. aussiehousesitters

Cheers,

Val

Hello John,

Easy access to the freeway.
Good pools, Good owners.

Hello again John,
we live in Busselton and unless we are staying before going overseas, we take our caravan. We have stayed for up to three weeks at different times in our van. Cabins usually overnight.
They are a Top Tourist Park so if you belong to that organisation you get the discount.
Their phone number is 1800 633 665
or 08 9447 6665

I have found them to be a very well organised park and have had no problems over the past 15 years or so.
we haven't stayed there since June as we are on a round Oz lap; currently at Yeppoon. Hope this helps.
Regards
Rob J

When you say "north Perth" do you mean the actual suburb North Perth, or the general region to the north of the city..?

G'day John - Accommodation is not easy to find between North Perth and quite a few kms North of Perth.
If you stay in North Perth or Leederville, there's plenty of accommodation, but be prepared to pay CBD accommodation prices.
Once you move out of North Perth, accommodation isn't easy to find, until you get about 20kms North.

Here's a small house in Woodvale that may suit you. It's about 20kms North of North Perth, but it's highly suitable for a couple, and it has easy access to the Mitchell Freeway, which makes for a fast run into North Perth.
The owner lives in the rear house on the same block and he seems to specialise in weekly rentals. The rental cost is $130 a night, which is pretty reasonable pricing for Perth.

The accommodation has a rating of 5 out 5 from 8 reviewers. It appears to be a very nice spot, with parkland/bush over the road. The owner is pretty strict, no smokers, no pets, and suitable only for a couple. I find that apartment/house owners who set strict rules, usually makes for a pleasant stay.

With the Stayz site, you deal directly with the owner of the accommodation.

1 Bedroom house for rent - Woodvale

I think you're well advised to move fast, February is the high season and accommodation is very rapidly booked out from now on.

Cheers, Ron.

P.S. I trust the birthdate of the bub is spot-on! We got a new grandchild last April, and we flew from Perth to the Gold Coast to see him - but he didn't want to make an appearance!
We sat around for 10 days, waiting and waiting - and he still didn't appear, so the docs had to induce him!
So it ended up, instead of having a fortnight with new bub, we only had 4 days, before we had to come home again!!

Cheers, Ron.

Thanks Ron, I trust we may have better luck with the arrival time but as it is their first who knows? As long as they are fit and healthy that's all that matters but I am sure Grandma will make sure she gets some quality time. Good luck and thanks again Regards john y

As a Perth dweller, I concur with all the recommendations you've been given here. I will just add one more - that may/not interest you. We've had visitors stay at Sorrento - there are two options here - either the Quality Resort or inside the marina at Hillarys Harbour Resort. Obviously, quite a bit more upmarket than a cabin at the caravan park but I'm not sure what you're after. It's a big trip to come to Perth and Sorrento is absolutely stunning. Everything you need will be in walking distance and its 25 min drive to North Perth. We don't have all day traffic here - just peak hour blockages and only in the direction of the city.

Hope this helps.

Thanks Michelle we will have a look. With regard to traffic we live in a fairly isolated part of the Victorian High Country. 5 cars in 5 minutes in the local village outside of holiday times would constitute peak hour...Regards john y
