When looking for convenient, family-friendly accommodation you may come across many different options including hotels, resorts, serviced apartments, self-contained units or short stay furnished accommodation to name a few. If you find yourself asking ‘what does furnished accommodation actually include?’ you might find that the answers differ from property to property. There are certain furnishings and amenities that typically always included, and others that may or may not be available. Executive Escapes has a diverse range of modern, well-located short stay accommodation in Perth which include all the comfortable conveniences you need to relax and feel right at home. Here’s a general guide so you know what to expect from furnished, self-contained short stay accommodation.
In the Kitchen
You will find large appliances such as a fridge, stove, oven, microwave and dishwasher, as well as small appliances like a toaster and kettle. Some may also include a coffee maker, blender or food processor. The kitchen will also be equipped with everything you need to cook a meal such as pots and pans, bakeware, dishes and utensils and eat a meal, including crockery, cutlery and glasses.
Kitchen facilities will vary between properties so it’s best to check the finer details before you book to ensure the kitchen space has everything you need to meet your catering requirements.
All Executive Escapes properties include complementary tea, coffee, sugar and milk, as well as kitchen staples such as olive oil
The Living and Dining Space
The dining area should have a table and enough chairs for a minimum of 2-4 people depending on the size of the property. The living area should have enough comfortable seating for the number of guests staying and will usually have a TV and stereo system, lamps, coffee table and maybe even a desk. All Executive Escapes short stay holiday homes will also provide free access to Wi-fi.
Beds will be made up with fresh hotel grade bed linen and have enough pillows and blankets for all beds, including fold-out sofas, beds and cots if requested. Keep in mind that this type of accommodation is different to a hotel in that it is not serviced every day with fresh linen so if you are staying for an extended period of time, you may request a housekeeping service half way through your stay from us. Most self-contained accommodation options will have a washing machine, and either a tumble drier or somewhere to hang your laundry should you need to wash any clothes or bedding during your stay. Executive Escapes provides complementary washing detergent so you won’t need to buy this.
All properties will have clean and modern bathroom facilities with toilet, shower and basin as a minimum, some may also include a bathtub. In the bathroom you will find clean towels and a bath mat as well as accessories such as a toothbrush holder, soap dispenser and waste bin. All Executive Escapes properties will supply toilet paper soap, conditioner and shampoo.
Parking and Outside Space
These will vary from property to property. Most properties will have parking space available to accommodate one car. Inner city apartments will likely have a balcony or small patio with a table and chairs, but you should not expect large garden areas or outside dining spaces unless the property is located outside of busy urban areas.
Other Amenities and Services
Short stay furnished accommodation may come with more than just furniture and catering equipment, depending on the property, you may also find:
- 24-hour concierge
- communal laundry facilities
- swimming pool/spa
- tennis court
- fitness centre
- BBQ facilities
- lounge area
We do recommend that before you book accommodation, you always check the facilities provided to ensure the property will meet your expectations on arrival.
