The West Australian local government, City of Vincent, has long been known for their leadership in community engagement and ensuring the community has exceptional services and offerings to suit anyone within the city limits.

The Suburban Dream

December 12th, 2017|Community, Founders Thoughts, Hosts, Trust|

Like many Perth suburbians, I bought into the lifestyle of a large block, 10 minutes off the freeway in the fast-growing southern suburb of Harrisdale/Piara waters. We parted ways with over half a million dollars, choosing a local Perth project builder to complete our mini-mansion; 4 bedrooms, study, family, 2.5 bath, double garage, stone benchtops, wood flooring, upgraded tapware, and of course the front & backyard [...]

What’s it like being an Airbnb Host in Perth?

November 25th, 2017|Community, Experience, Founders Thoughts, Hosts, Trust|

Like many Perth kids, as soon as I was old enough to get a passport and pay for a plane ticket, I was outta here! And like most Aussies I went to Bali.  I then saved my pennies and made the pilgrimage to London. I then backpacked, went back to London. Which was followed up with more backpacking before hitting up London a third time. By [...]

Life in Paradise

July 9th, 2017|Founders Thoughts|

For as long as there has been people, there has been a requirement for space. From our need to gather to our need to exercise, from art expression and sharing, through to learning. Or to simply be…. Space is pretty much essential to us humans. It seemed to be that in our past, spaces were shared pretty effectively. Any visit to an ancient city ruin shows this [...]

Build Trust in Your Community

June 5th, 2017|Founders Thoughts|

We blame the automatic garage door opener. It isn’t our fault; that’s for sure! Or maybe it is… In most neighbourhoods these days, there are plenty of driveways that end in an automatic garage door. While convenient, especially on a rainy evening after a long day at work, what has this done for the concept of Community? Growing up, we used to regularly wave, stop, chat and generally [...]
