We stayed at Grandview for a total of 4 nights, 1 at the start of our Australia holiday and 3 at the end.
Geoff collected us from the airport after our early morning flight as arranged, and later that evening was kind enough to take us back to the airport to collect our rental car.
Geoff and Leanne’s friendliness was fabulous. Nothing was too much trouble for them, they were excellent and friendly hosts.
Grandview is a wonderful house, set on a hill overlooking Perth, with wonderful views of the city. The outside decking on the upper level provided a sitting area and the day bed was super in the sunshine! The lower level had the swimming pool, BBQ, dining table and chairs and sunloungers. We enjoyed watching the sun set over the city and the early evening visit from the Kookaburra.
The room itself was modern and clean and had everything you could want, with a large comfortable bed, foxtel cable TV (and a DVD player with selection of films), nice en-suite with shower, toiletries and heated towel rail. There was a separate room within the bedroom with clothes storage, fridge, tea and coffee making and an ironing board. Electric blankets were nice as it did get a little cool in the late evening.
Breakfast was continental style, with fruit, yoghurt, cereals, toast, croissants, teas, coffee and juice.
We were thankfully able to use the washing machine, which was very handy.
Geoff and Leanne are happy for you to share the facilities of the house, and there are interesting items of memorabilia all around.
A 20 minute walk (few minutes drive) up the hill is a very nice Italian restaurant called Embers, we ate there at lunchtime and also had a very nice evening meal (best to book for evenings as it gets busy). There is a French patisserie here too, although we did not get to try as it seemed to be closed a couple of days during the week.
A little further along the road is Kalamunda , we walked from the B&B and it took about 35 minutes (only a short drive). In Kalamunda you will find a few restaurants including Thai on the Hill (very nice), as well as a variety of shops, supermarket, fish and chips, visitor centre etc.
Perth was about 30minutes drive away, Geoff did say getting there by train was easy too.
We had a thoroughly enjoyable time at Grandview, and would most definitely choose to stay again.
Thank you Geoff and Leanne.
