Perth Airbnb: 15 Places to Stay for the Ultimate Australian Experience

This article may contain affiliate / compensated links. For full information, please see our disclaimer here.

If you’re looking to explore the Australian West Coast, your best option (and frankly, one of your only options) would be to find a Perth Airbnb.

Bordered by the Indian Ocean to the west and Australia’s vast expanse of outbacks to the east, Perth is famous for being one of the most isolated major metropolises of the First World. Even so, many would argue this is the greatest city in the Land Down Under, and chances are you’ll come to share that opinion after vacationing here.

You’ll find no shortage of incredible places to stay in or near the city, but we’ve made a list of what we believe to be the 15 best Airbnbs in Perth.

Quick Info

Type: Entire Home (1BR, 1B)

Location: Nedlands

Superhost: Yes

Price: $

This Perth Airbnb boasts a memorable interior backed by a positively gorgeous, decent-sized garden. 

The cabin is an oddly homogenous mix of Scandinavian design, a Japanese bathroom, and one of Perth’s swankiest neighborhoods… We guarantee there’s nothing quite like it in the area! The makeshift kitchen perfectly fits the tone of the house, and the sleeping nook with the lovely view of the yard is the perfect place for a couple to charge their batteries.

Close to the city center yet sporting a homely, suburban aesthetic, Nedlands features countless amazing locales, and the lovely Kings Park and Matilda Bay are only a few minutes away.

Why We Love It: Unorthodox cabin that manages to pull off an unlikely combination of aesthetic choices.

What Past Guests Have Said: “Great little airy cabin with everything you need close to UWA and the river. Easy access via public transport, or on street verge parking. Nice to have muesli, milk and a coffee machine provided!”

“Our second visit here.The cabin is clean,comfortable and in a wonderful location. Thanks Claire.”

“Any one wanting to explore this area should look to Claire for this humble yet gracious escape. Zachary particularly loved the Varsitey Bar at the bottom of Broadway Fair, its now doted a hidden gem.”

Type: Entire Home (1BR, 1B)

Location: Mount Street, West Perth

Superhost: Yes

Price: $

Many of the world’s most gorgeous galleries can be found in Australia, but if you want to dodge the inevitable crowds, this Airbnb in Perth can act as your own little art exhibit.

The defining feature of the sunny living area is the wall of flower paintings, which are every bit as ravishing as the real thing. The fashionable bedroom will have you looking forward to a good night’s sleep, and the fancy bathroom and kitchen are the best you could ask for.

On top of being an amazing place to enjoy your morning coffee, the enclosed balcony gives you a taste of what you can expect to find in the immediate area. Mount Street offers countless dining and recreation options you won’t want to miss out on.

Why We Love It: Elegant studio with an amazing balcony view.

What Past Guests Have Said: “LJ has a beautiful place right in the middle of the city. There is limited parking, but if you arrive in the arvo around 3-4 there shouldn’t be a problem. Its an old building, but she did a great job inside and its definitely worth staying there. We had a fantastic time and will try to stay with Lj again.”

“Lovely place! Very clean and such a welcoming atmosphere will definitely consider when looking to stay in the city next time, thank you!”

Quick Info

Type: Entire Home (1BR, 1B)

Location: Perth CBD

Superhost: Yes

Price: $

You might be surprised at the quality that Perth Airbnbs bring to the table, even when traveling on a budget. Case in point, this incredible CBD apartment.

The interior effortlessly masks the price of the rental with (arguably) the most elegant living room in the entire city. The unassuming decorations make the bedroom look incredibly stylish, and the kitchen features everything from modern appliances to a TV, allowing you to flick through the channels as you wait for your delicacy to finish cooking.

Finally, the sunrise over Perth Mint is out of this world, so day larks should greet the morning out on the balcony and take some next-level photos.

Why We Love It: Beautiful apartment with a breathtaking interior.

What Past Guests Have Said: “Awesome location! Tucked away near hay street, you could just walk up to the CBD area in 7 mins. Marcus is also very responsive should you have any enquiries. Highly recommended place to stay!”

“Marcus was really friendly and easy to contact, and was flexible about check-in timings as well! The apartment was spacious, well-furnished and had a great shower and comfortable bed. Location was really good too, which made it easy to get around. We’ll definitely stay here again if we visit Perth!”

Quick Info

Type: Entire Home (2BR, 1B)

Location: Wanneroo 

Superhost: Yes

Price: $

There will always be an audience for stylistically unique rentals, and this Airbnb in Perth is exactly that. 

If you’re traveling with children or simply enjoy spending time in the great outdoors, you’ll love this cottage’s country-style exterior, which is home to a variety of lovely farm animals. Between the outdoor barbecue area and the charming kitchen, there’s no meal you won’t be able to cook up, and inside, there are enough beds for up to six people to lay their heads.

Wanneroo’s farming community is sure to add an element of positivity to your stay, but the center of Perth is only 20-or-so minutes away by car, should you choose to urbanize things.

Why We Love It: Cute country cottage in a peaceful location.

What Past Guests Have Said: “Kids had an absolute ball. We loved staying here. Lisa was great with the kids allowing them to feed and play with the baby chickens. Princess was the highlight, every morning when she heard the kids she would come over for a carrot or 2 and a pat.”

“A very clean and well presented property. We found it to be a good place to operate from, shopping facilities close at hand and easy to get where we wanted to go.”

“It was a pleasant stay at Lisa’s with everything we needed in a lovely setting. My daughter loved being able to feed “Princess” the carrots which Lisa provided & being able to have farm fresh eggs also supplied.”

Quick Info

Type: Entire Home (2BR, 2B)

Location: Burswood

Superhost: Yes

Price: $

Offering a genuinely authentic take on a tried-and-true interior style, this Perth Airbnb is elegance given form.

The apartment executes a near monochrome design flawlessly by sprinkling in some blue and the occasional house plant. The open floor plan gives you plenty of space in the living room and kitchen areas, and each of the two bedrooms comes alive with personality. 

The amazing balcony views are enough to light a fire under anyone’s feet, as this rental is mere minutes from all the very best places in Perth. Even so, the Burswood area itself is very peaceful and tranquil, so you’ll be spared from any and all unwanted noise throughout the day.

Why We Love It: Fashionable apartment conveniently close to CBD.

The Loft

The Loft

Quick Info

Type: Entire Home (1BR, 2B)

Location: Fremantle

Superhost: Yes

Price: $$

This Perth Airbnb outshines a lot of the city’s more expensive rentals by virtue of its tasteful decor.

The loft is essentially a warehouse that’s been given a complete makeover. The contrast between the sleek kitchen appliances and the still-visible storeroom elements is what gives this place its aesthetic edge. Interior design aside, the loft can sleep up to five people between its three beds, and the balcony view of the city is superb.

The biggest advantage of staying in Fremantle is that everything you could want to visit is bound to be a few minutes away at most. The hosts maintain that The Attic and Bread In Common are the area’s best restaurants, so may as well start there!

Why We Love It: Stunning loft located right by the beach.

What Past Guests Have Said: “Second time visitors, and it just keeps getting better. Will be back.”

“Jessica was very quick to respond and the communication was great. She even allowed us to check in early before our wedding day which was a huge help. The apartment is exactly as described in the listing and was such a beautiful space. The bed was extremely comfy. Best location right in the heart of Fremantle close to many bars and restaurants. Would definitely stay here again. Thanks!”

“We loved our stay at The Loft. Amazing space, has everything you need & is so close to everything fun that Freo has to offer.”

Quick Info

Type: Entire Home (2BR, 1B)

Location: East Perth

Superhost: Yes

Price: $$

We can’t come up with enough superlatives to describe this Airbnb in Perth… it’s just that good!

Clean apartments look even cleaner when they feature floor-to-ceiling windows combined with tiled walls and hardwood floors. You can expect the spectacular kitchen and living area to be glistening whenever the sun is up in this stylish space. The two bedrooms offer some amazing views of the city, as does the incredibly spacious balcony. 

If you stay here, the city’s best parks, restaurants, and the Optus Stadium will be right at your doorstep. What’s more, the few major attractions that aren’t within walking distance are easily reachable via free public transport.  

Why We Love It: Impossibly stylish apartment in the heart of the action in Perth. 

What Past Guests Have Said: “The city skyline night view is easily the best thing about the apartment. Little details and small touches such as ornaments and pillow cases relating to the Lunar New Year made it all better, especially considering that my group was all Asian. Would definitely come back if met with another opportunity!”

“Fantastic centrally located apartment in close proximity to local restaurants, the city and Optus Stadium. Great balcony with amazing views of Perth city skyline. Maggie was always prompt with her responses and all questions answered!”

Quick Info

Type: Entire Home (2BR, 1B)

Location: Fremantle

Superhost: No

Price: $$

This Perth Airbnb is truly a breath of fresh air, and it ought to serve as a template for any good vacation house in Australia and beyond.

You wouldn’t think a living room that features little to no decor can wind up looking so extravagant, but this house is full of surprises. Besides the great kitchen and two cushy bedrooms, what truly sells this place is the enclosed backyard, which is the perfect place to let your pets or children run loose.

Fremantle is one of the best places to stay to get a feel for Perth, and to make things even better, you can leave your car in the driveway for the entirety of your stay and walk to a number of great restaurants and locales.

Why We Love It: Inviting house with a well-maintained garden. 

What Past Guests Have Said: “Firstly, we were wowed by the amazing view and fantastic location of Michael’s place! Tons of cafes in walking distance and a short drive away from the beach. Secondly, we had the entire ground floor to ourselves with a big lawn where my dog could just chill at. The whole house was very clean with modern furnishings and big comfy sofa/beds! We absolutely enjoyed our stay and definitely will be back! Thanks Michael for hosting and helping out when I had to return to pick up when I left in the house. Highly recommended if you’re in Fremantle!”

Type: Entire Home (3BR, 1B)

Location: Scarborough

Superhost: Yes

Price: $$

Even the highest-end Airbnbs in Perth could learn a thing or two from this fashionable, sunny apartment.

The baby-blue furniture works perfectly here, and you’d be hard-pressed to find a more luxurious kitchen anywhere in the area. The three bedrooms are no less stylish, but for something truly outstanding, you can step out onto the balcony and enjoy some fresh air and a complimentary bottle of wine.

This part of Perth is a beach lover’s delight, as it’s close to plenty of surfing spots, oceanside walkways, and other Scarborough draws. Also nearby is Brighton Road, should you want to check out some of the city’s very best restaurants.

Why We Love It: Bright beachside apartment with amazing connectivity.

What Past Guests Have Said: “This place is an absolute must stay. Location, sparkling clean, gorgeous decor, easy check in and beautiful arrival treats x”

Quick Info

Type: Entire Home (2BR, 2B)

Location: Near CBD

Superhost: Yes

Price: $$

This swanky Perth Airbnb for five is one of the better picks for a family looking to stay near the center of town.

The interior’s ample open space is a welcome feature for any good group retreat, and the same can be said for the fancy kitchen and double-bathroom setup. Besides the two queen beds, you’ll also have a crib for the little prince or princess of the family. 

Once you’ve had your share of exploring for the day, you can relax in the building’s swimming pool or hit the fitness area for a quick workout. You won’t have to venture too far to enjoy a good meal, either, as there’s a fabulous Greek restaurant right downstairs!

Why We Love It: Spacious apartment boasting plenty of great amenities and communal areas.

Type: Entire Home (2BR, 1B)

Location: South Fremantle

Superhost: Yes

Price: $$

Spacious, fancy, and dripping with style, you really can’t go wrong with this amazing Airbnb in Perth.

The mix of black, white, and wooden surfaces makes for one of the most alluring color palettes for any house, especially one as bright and airy as this spot. The kitchen and bathroom (walk-in shower, anyone?) are incredible, and the two queen beds offer Hilton levels of comfort and luxury. Bonus brownie points for that spectacular garden and all its floral touches!

You can get to the center of Fremantle in about 10 minutes on foot from here, and South Fremantle Beach is under a mile away – the worst part of staying here is that you won’t be able to decide which bar or restaurant to visit first!

Why We Love It: Gorgeous villa located in what might be the best part of Perth.

What Past Guests Have Said: “Very Beautiful place, great location, very clean, everything has been thought about. Paige is very easy to deal with”

“Great little place! Perfect for a girls weekend! Or even a study weekend. Very clean, calm and so very relaxing especially with all the lovely plants.”

Magical Honeysuckle Cottage Bickley

Quick Info

Type: Entire Home (3BR, 2B)

Location: Bickley

Superhost: Yes

Price: $$$

The origins of this Perth Airbnb can be traced back to over 100 years ago, and its unique configuration speaks volumes about its history. 

Although the house features three bedrooms and has a six-person occupancy limit, the elegance of the interior makes it very easy to recommend this place to a couple. In addition to the solid kitchen, guests will have access to a ginormous patio, which features an outdoor pizza oven with a gorgeous mural, arguably the cottage’s most striking feature.

As spectacular as the deck views of Bickley are, the valley looks even better from up close. Grab yourself a bicycle and check out the numerous trails and gorgeous vining gardens in the vicinity.

Why We Love It: Eye-catching house that’s every bit as comfortable as it looks. 

What Past Guests Have Said: “Martin’s place is a stylish retreat close to the town centre of Kalamunda and 20 mins to the Swan Valley. The deck is gorgeous and would be perfect for entertaining or spending time with friends. My husband and I loved spending our mornings having breakfast out there! The main bedroom has an ensuite but we chose to use the main bathroom which was more spacious and modern. Martin was a great host, even helping to get the pizza oven set up! Overall, we both loved the few days we spent at Martin’s and would highly recommend it!!”

Type: Entire Home (BR, B)

Location: Fremantle

Superhost: Yes

Price: $$$

A great man once wrote, “There are no rules of architecture for a castle in the clouds”, and that definitely holds true for this Airbnb in Perth.

The only things separating the “interior” from the spacious garden are the bi-fold doors, which, let’s face it, you’re not going to want to close for the duration of your stay. This leaves you with a unique house whose backyard is effectively a massive, grassy room. As for its more base-level features, the rental has a great kitchen, three bedrooms, and a terrace with a truly mesmerizing sunset view.

The house is located in Fremantle, meaning that a leisurely stroll in any direction will lead you to an amazing restaurant or shop in no time at all.

Why We Love It: Cozy, blended living space in one of Perth’s best districts.

What Past Guests Have Said: “We stayed here for the weekend of my wedding. It was the perfect place for all the girls to get ready in and Amy & Doug were so accomodating. Great location, very spacious and stylish. We loved our stay.”

“Wonderful place to stay! Gorgeous yard, brilliant for our toddler to run around in. Comfortable house, awesome big bath to relax in! Hosts were just amazing, quick communication and really, really helpful. Would definitely stay again!”

Price: $$$

If you’re looking to ride some waves during your Australian vacation, this Airbnb in Perth might be perfect for you.

The apartment covers all of the fundamentals: it features an amazing kitchen, three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a half-toilet, all of which are impeccably clean. In addition, each bedroom has a private balcony with an ocean view to get your surfer reflexes up and running first thing in the morning. 

Even if surfing’s not your scene, you’re guaranteed to find something to do by just walking along the Cottesloe beachfront. Keep your eyes peeled for places like Little Sup Cafe and the Eric Street shopping center!

Why We Love It: Gorgeous apartment located less than a minute from the beach.

What Past Guests Have Said: “Great place, great location & everything you need for a fantastic relaxing stay. Hope to visit again!”

Quick Info

Type: Entire Home (BR, B)

Location: Belhus

Superhost: Yes

Price: $$$

Although staying on a farm might not be everyone’s cup of tea, this Perth Airbnb gives animal enthusiasts a chance to make some new furry and feathered friends.

The kitchen and three bedrooms are very charming, but if you plan on booking this place, you probably aren’t planning on spending much time inside, and who could blame you? The gorgeous vineyard-slash-garden offers some amazing views of the area’s rolling hills, and you’ll even have access to an outdoor swimming pool for good measure.  Not to mention pet sheep, alpaca and more!

Located a fair distance from CBD and the beachfront, Belhus is one of the quietest suburbs of Perth you can hope to find. If you do decide to hit the city, though, the center is around 20 miles away.

Why We Love It: Suburban farmhouse where quiet and serenity are guaranteed.

What Past Guests Have Said: “Had the most wonderful experience. The house was beautiful and the animals such a gorgeous touch. Karina was fantastic, she even hunted out her dvds for us when we wanted some. Couldn’t recommend it more.”

“Amazing stay! Big beautiful house with a swimming pool and great entertainment area. The animals are so cute too. The house is very well equipped and has everything you could need. Set on a big block its so peaceful! Thank you we will definitely be back.”

“Amazing stay! Everything you need for a getaway. Our family of 5 enjoyed the pool, outdoor area and house!”

Things to do in Perth, Australia

The capital of Western Australia is as action-packed as they come, so take a look at the following Airbnb experiences to give your vacation that extra kick:

  • Porsche GT3 Ultimate Ride Experience – As you might have guessed from reading our exhaustive descriptions of Perth’s neighborhoods, the differences from district to district are often quite glaring. If you’re still torn on where to pitch your tent, take a Porsche ride with a tour guide and do a thorough sweep of Western Australia in style!
  • Bites, Bars & Backstreets Food Tour – We could go on and on about Perth’s finer points forever, but one of the city’s biggest draws would have to be its cuisine. With that in mind, consider doing a food tour through the district of Northbridge – wine, dine, and recount your vacation experiences with fellow tourists, all while learning a thing or two about cooking in the process.
