This is an over 100 years old renovated weatherboard house in the heart of North Fremantle, walking distance: 1 minute to the river and 5 minutes to the ocean. Public transport at the end of the street (train and bus to the CBD and Fremantle). I'm an artist so there's always something interesting around, especially in the garden which can serve as a meeting place for guests. It has a welcoming atmosphere.
There generally isn't a problem with booking in time, as often guests are arriving at all hours on planes etc.
