A FEW IMPORTANT HOUSEHOLD THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW …
Please leave the house in a clean and tidy condition with all dishes washed and returned to their correct places. An extra cleaning charge will be requested if the property is left in an overly dirty or untidy state, or if ovens, cook tops and bbqs are left in a dirty and grimy state, or linen or towels are badly stained (fake tan, makeup and hair dye being the worst culprits). We will endeavour to provide photographic evidence in such cases.
ELECTRICITY ( Heating in winter or air-conditionning in summer).
We are a family of five and we use an average of 38 electricity units per day (i.e. less than 9$/day). We are a mindful family trying to save on our bills and on the life span of our planet. We use little air conditioning and favour natural air draft. In winter we don't heat at night, we use extra blankets... We give you double credit in consumption as it can get really warm or cold during the summer and winter and you are on holidays! But beyond this consumption, we expect to charge the additional used units. We will take a photo of the electricity meter upon arrival and on departure date. For your information, the Perth Synergy rate is : 26$/unit
Sorry but we have a strict no party policy. Large or noisy gatherings will not be tolerated in our peaceful residential neighbourhood.
Please place all household rubbish in bin bags (kept in the kitchen) and place in the large council bins located in the side alley. Recycling policy is explained in a folder left for information on the kitchen bench upon arrival.
Try to recycle where possible.
WE ARE STRICTLY NON SMOKING

We are a family of 5. Our children are 8, 9 and 12 years old. Our house is a safe haven and everyone who comes here tell us how warm and welcoming the house is. We love our house.
We also love our neighbourhood. Subiaco is a wonderful small village with a strong community feel. "Village" even if immediately adjacent the Perth CBD. It is safe and quite neighbourhood. Cockatoos, magpies and honey suckle birds are equally residents to this area. Trees are everywhere and they stay green all year round.
We have decided to rent the house during the weeks when we are in France to visit family. We like the idea that someone is taking care of our house. It also allows us to go abroad to visit our family.
Our kids go to the Subiaco Primary School and Shenton College ( local public schools), I am a university teacher and my husband is an engineer.
