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.
Interaction with Guests
We are close handy if you have any problems or queries. Just message or call us when you get the phone number from AirBnb.
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. The majestic Norfolk palms line the streets and our lovely magpie family warmly chuckles every morning. It is within 50 metres from the pool, gym and famous Port Fairy Folk Festival gates.
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 .
Other Things to Note
Why stay in an apartment or motel when you can have your own cottage in the heart of our town? A heritage listed blue stone 1860's cottage tastefully presented with all the luxury set for an indulgent retreat.
Enjoy our cottage and all a real Port Fairy heritage cottage experience can provide. Our place is our holiday indulgence filled with photos, books and modern amenities we too love escape to. 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:)
We had a delightful experience at the Cottage, we found everything to be as advertised. Standard of cleanliness was excellent, location perfect and the little extras provided were much appreciated and added to the experience. Contact with hosts both prior to and after our visit was great.
We loved the cottage and we truly enjoyed Port Fairy. Very comfortable with many nice touches that we enjoyed. Will definitely come back, thanks!
It's really nice to stay in this house like this! The host is such nice guys, it's the best house we've ever stayed till now. The hosts are very thoughtful, and we really really love them! Their room is so clean, and it's so generous of them to give us so many gifts! We strongly recommend this house!
It was an absolute pleasure staying in Damien & Adele's cottage. The cottage is very well maintained and provided just what I was looking for - a feel of the days long gone. For us, it blended in well with the overall feel of port fairy - a quaint little town. We will certainly return for a longer duration next time
P.S - the fruits & wine were a nice touch. Thanks much!
Our host made us feel most welcome, both before we arrived, with advice by phone and checking up on arrival to make sure all was well, and they made us feel very welcome by leading a card, chocolates, fruit and drink, as well as with all of the facilities. This is a delightful place, as restored 1860s cottage with spacious rooms and facilities and an easy walk to the seafront in a delightful town. We'd be happy to return.
De verhuurder heeft ons via sms laten weten dat zij op onze komst rekende. De sleutel lag onder de mat. Het huisje was heerlijk schoon en zag er heel knus en authentiek uit. In de koelkast lag een heerlijk fles wijn koud, vers fruit op het aanrecht en chocolaatjes voor bij de thee. Een vriendelijk kaartje van de eigenaars om ons te laten weten dat wij hartelijk welkom waren. Het is een sprookjeshuis in Port Fairy.
Het centrum is een paar minuten lopen. Kortom een echte aanrader!
Lovely home with really lovely welcoming hosts. Walking distance to everywhere. Enormous bathroom, comfy beds. We were very happy.
