Finding somewhere to live may feel like the Wild West out there, but if you need a light at the end of the tunnel, we’ve found a handful of Perth’s more delightful homes available to rent this week, at a range of budgets.
382 Newcastle Street, West Perth ($600/week)
Nestled between West Perth, Highgate and the CBD, this charming townhouse is as quirky as you would hope for its location on the city’s fringes. Formerly a shop, the home occupies two levels – with a huge living and dining room downstairs, plus a secondary living area upstairs with a loft-style bedroom.

42/119 South Terrace, Fremantle ($720/week)
Another conversion! This time, we’re in Freo – and what’s more Freo than a warehouse conversion designed by Brian Klopper? The Primaries Wool Stores were originally built circa 1923-25 before being converted to a commercial and residential development in 1993. Number 42 in the development features two bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms and two car bays. With conti rolls and fresh produce from Galati & Sons, cocktails at Who’s Your Mumma, and coffee from The Little Concept right on your doorstep, the location is pretty hard to beat.

517/380 Murray Street, Perth ($580/week)
Sick of the commute to and from your CBD office? You can’t get much closer to the heart of the city than this apartment, located at 380 Murray Street. Relax on your balcony overlooking the rooftop garden, or unwind after a long day’s work with a dip in the rooftop infinity pool, which boasts an unmatched view of Perth’s premier landmark (the Telstra quarter pipe).

11 Harley Street, Highgate ($690/week)
This Highgate heritage charmer has everything you’d hope for in an inner-city character cottage. Part of the heritage-listed Vasse Terrace and with Hyde Park as your backyard, the Federation Italianate style homes were originally built in 1898 – featuring a stunning filigree frontage and ornate mouldings inside.

113A Forrest Street, Peppermint Grove ($1800/week)
Perhaps you’ve got a bit more budget up your sleeves? This Peppy Grove mansion is also up for grabs for a cool $1800/week. Four bedrooms, four bathrooms, wine cellar, a lavish interior and even a lift – situated between the river and the beach in one of Perth’s most enviable suburbs!
