Our aim is to provide all the urbane
comforts of a city B & B, without the imposition of hovering hosts.
Accordingly, we do not intrude at breakfast time, before you are ready
to face the world. Rather, we pamper you with the continental breakfast
provisions of your choice, including eggs and endless tea and coffee,
discreetly placed in your own bar fridge (one for each bedroom) in the
sideboard the night before, so you can help
yourself at your leisure in the morning. When you indicate, via a sign
hanging on the dividing door, we will quietly clear away your breakfast things,
and service your rooms.
When our washing machine is not in
use, you are welcome to use our laundry facilities and clothes line/dryer, if
we are in attendance. Alternately, there is a Laundromat on your walking map within
easy strolling distance.
Children of all ages are welcome at
Above Bored, where child safety has been
carefully considered. Our landscaped gardens are fully enclosed within high
clinker brick walls, with high latch gates. There's a sturdy grill over the goldfish
pond, and fire screens are provided for each of the gas fireplaces,
which attach to the wall when children are in residence, to prevent the
screens from being pulled over. However, all responsibility for the safety of
your children can only reside with you. As we do not own a cot, you may like
to bring a porta-cot, for any littleys not yet comfortable sleeping in a
single bed. And, at the top of our street, we have a playground, only 5 minutes walk away, on the corner of Norham and Blake Sts (see walking map).
Professional local babysitters can always be found here: www.findababysitter.com.au, our postcode is 6006.
Well behaved pets can be accommodated at Above Bored, after prior consultation. We have the friendliest dog park in Perth, just 5 minutes walk away. The locals chat and their dogs romp with yours about 5pm every day between Namur and Farmer Sts (see walking map). Additionally, you are most welcome to feed our pond fish at
feeding times – just ask us for some fish flakes.
