About the Homestay
I live in a 8 bedroom house which located on a large block of land (over 9000 square meters) in the quiet suburb of Beckenham, which is 7.5 miles (12km) southeast from Perth CBD (only 15 mins by train). I have outdoor animals in the large backyard (dog and sheep). Guests are welcome to use the tennis court in the backyard.
There is one large shopping mall (Westfield Carousel Shopping Centre) 2.5km from the house with over 300 shops, supermarkets, cinema, IMAX, restaurant and pub under one roof.
The house has 1 single room, 2 double size bedrooms, & 5 queen size bedrooms with 2 bathroom, 2 toilet, 2 kitchen, 2 dining area and 2 TV lounge. You can park the car in the front of the property which can easily accommodate 10 cars.
It's an International house as all my guests come from overseas and eastern states of Australia who come to work, live and travel in Western Australia. Some of the guests have stayed over 5 years, there are also coming back guests as well, so you will meet interesting people from different countries. Sometime, we have house meal & drink together.
The house is not far from everything, The suburb is very quiet and safe, most of the local residents have been living here for over 30 years.
Complimentary tea/coffee in the kitchen, all necessities provided (linen, towel, washing liquid, hand soap, washing powder for the laundry, toilet paper & etc. Please feel free to ask if you need anything extra or special which is not listed here.

Yan help me much here as a visitor to Australia, and I must say thank you very much for your help and warm hospitality
Thank you so much for everything. Thanks to you, I had comfortable time
daring the stay. The most memorable experience with you was making wanton.
I had never seen the machine to make wanton's skin. I liked it very much.
I managed to go back to Japan.
I was not anxious about my daughter during she was in Perth, because she was with you and you kindly took care of her.
Thank you so much for taking care of her. She is not mature enough, so I suppose you had much trouble with her rather than other travelers.
I met Maru at Cairns on 4th September. She said she enjoyed her stay in Perth.
We enjoyed diving at Great Barrier Reef staying a ship fro 3 days.
After that we visited Kuranda city taking Kuranda seanary railways and sky-rail, then visited the Atherton tableland to see wallabys, platypuses and possams.
We came back to Japan on 9th September safely.
Maru has got really meaning experience in Perth thanks to you.
Thank you again.
Yan is a great person and a great host - very helpful and wise. I felt comfortable as soon as I arrived. It's an easy walk to Beckenham station from the house and 15 minutes into the city on the train. I found the whole area to be very quiet. Yan is also the only person I know who has pet sheep (Mickey and Sheila) in the huge garden at the back of the house. I enjoyed meeting them as well as the other guests who were very nice people. I loved staying there and hope to stay again the next time I'm in Perth. Thankyou for everything. :)
Yan was always around to ask questions & great person. The garden was a work in progress. The room I stayed in was lovely, big & comfortable. Thank you Yan.
