About the location

We are 25 minutes drive from Perth city (cars available). Also on good transport links both bus and train. Perth Airport is 10 minutes away. So we are close to everything. Our house is located right on the Swan River in Guildford - beautiful natural bush spot. Guildford is a quaint little town with a village feel, it has bakeries, antique shops, secondhand bookshop, pub, restaurants, post office, etc. There is also the tourist bureau for all the information you will require during your stay. Good shopping is a 15 minute drive away with all the major stores/grocers etc. We are at the gateway to the Swan Valley and many tours leave from Guildford to explore our wine area, or you could hop on the river cruise from Perth which actually sails right past our house to the many wineries for lunch and wine tasting. We have a canoe to explore the river, bikes to use on the cycle path and if you want to fish - we can have that for you also! Then bring your catch home and chuck it on the barbie! (Weber Q and very civilised and easy to use). Guildford has a local Theatre which has productions on all year. The Casino is 15 minutes away and that has loads of entertainment. Guildford has a lovely heritage area which includes the old gaol and has a fabulous art centre with the Guildford Potters. There are walking tours you can take around Guildford that points out the local historical houses and places of interest. Plenty to do, or want to do nothing - all is here for you!!
