"Great location"

I am next to carr st in cleaver st. We can walk to leederville in a couple of minutes, which has a village like vibe with restaurants,large fitness centres, cafes,pubs, varied retail, tafe, schools,library, large sporting centre,train station etc and best of all an art house cinema. We are right next to a swimming centre, indoor and out and gym. We are also close to other entertainment centres, such as mount Lawley, Northbridge, Subiaco, and the city. Public transport all very accessible with a bus in the street taking only a few minutes to the city.
There are many lovely parks nearby such as hyde park and kings park, and several dog parks.
The area still has many character and heritage homes. This pocket of West Perth is really East Leederville, a very separate area from the business district of West Perth.

"Love living in West Perth!"

I am a single professional and live in an apartment complex near Harbour Town, near the City West train station (east of Thomas St, south of the Fremantle train line). Have lived here for about 6 months and absolutely loving it, such a convenient location! This part of West Perth has plenty of businesses so it is quite busy during the day and parking can be hard to come by (this doesn't bother me one bit as I am at work). However at night and on weekends this part of West Perth is quiet and there is plenty of street parking available for when friends come to visit (free of charge at night and on weekends). There are also two lovely parks nearby (Harold Boas Gardens and Totterdell Park) if you are looking for a bit of greenery. I was tossing up between West Perth and East Perth (where I could have bought a 2 bedroom apartment for a similar price to my 1 bedroom in West Perth) but chose West Perth as I feel much safer here. Almost all of the apartments in this area are nice and new and tend to be occupied by young professionals, I don't often see kids around. There is an old block of flats with some Homeswest occupants reasonably close (cnr Hay & Colin Sts), but I suspect it is old age pensioners or similar living there as I have never seen the police called or any dodgy characters hanging around (unlike previous Homeswest flats I have lived near!)
