About this listing
An indulgent get-away in Port Fairy. The perfect space for a quiet getaway at the end of Victoria's Great Ocean Road. In heart of the "most livable town in the world", The cottage mixes old world charm and luxury only 5 minutes from town and beaches.
Come and enjoy some heritage luxury. An authentic Port Fairy blue stone cottage with all the modern appointments you could enjoy. It's the perfect setting for that "Romantic Getaway" or the peaceful indulgent retreat you've been dreaming about. Imagine sitting back in the luxurious corner spa, on the first night, sipping the complimentary wine and chocolates, then relaxing in front of the open flame gas log fire.
The cottage, built in 1860, is National Trust listed, but completely renovated inside tastefully to provide modern conveniences but true to its age old charm.
It has two bathrooms and two bedrooms. The main kitchen is fully functional with all cooking utensils, hot plates, microwave and dishwasher; complete with fridge and tea/coffee making facilities. The second bedroom has its own small separate kitchenette.
A short stroll across parkland takes you to the premier South Beach and the famous Pea Soup. It's only two blocks from the shops and restaurants. Stroll another hundred metres and sit on the Wharf or wander a little further across the causeway to Griffith Island for spectacular ocean views and our wonderful Lighthouse.
If it's the world famous Folk and Roots festival you love, we are only a hundred metres from the front gate.
There's ample off street parking for cars or even a boat if you're interested in Port Fairy's famous fishing.
The nights at the cottage enable you to live in the heart of the town with walking distance to everything. After a day at the beach relax in the spa or in the cold months; cosy up by the gas log fire. Wine chocolates and fruit await when you first arrive.

Campbell St. is one of the main streets in the town but very quiet. Within walking distance to the shops, restaurants, parks and beaches; and a hundred metres from the skate park.

There is no local public transport about the town, but a bus service to Warrnambool 200 metres up the road. Everything in the town is walking distance .

We hope you to will share and respect our love of our cottage named after a young girl who began her teaching profession here in the 1880s; Elizabeth Margaret Brady.
Of note, Port Fairy water is bore water; quite clean but yucky tasting. We do have tank water available, but suggest you bring bottled water if you like a good cup of tea:)
The second bedroom with a queen bed. The window showers the room with beautiful sun in the morning. Just the place to sit at the bench and read the paper.
Damien and Adele were away but we were well looked after by Katie. Communication was friendly and welcoming. The cottage was presented thoughtfully with wine, chocolates, fruit bowl, fresh flowers, lovely toiletries, selection of teas and fresh milk. The cottage was very clean and warmed up nicely with the gas log heater. It is well positioned to walk into town and down to the river with easy car access.
