Feel instantly relaxed as you step into our magical home. Find it hiding away quietly, enjoy the unique architectural design and lie in the hammock under the trees. From here, you are perfectly positioned to explore this buzzing town and coastline.

The space

Everyone who walks into our home beams about it's distinctive peaceful feel. The high ceilings, big windows, mezzanine levels, exposed beams, jarrah floorboards and stained glass windows give it its unique character. It's 'very Freo' and designed by renowned local architect Brian Klopper.

The mature trees, historical train carriage and native birds in the garden add to the charm of our home. Relax and unwind in the shaded hammock or enjoy a BBQ under Perth's gorgeous sunshine or warm summer night sky.

At the end of a day experiencing the beaches and cafes of the area, you'll love coming back to this cosy and peaceful nook where you can make yourself feel right at home as a Freo local.

The stairs to the mezzanines are very steep. They are not suitable for use by children, people with vision or balance/mobility difficulties or people under the influence of alcohol or drugs. You will not need to go upstairs unless you want to watch TV or use the study desk.

We share a driveway with neighbours at the front. Guests can park a maximum of one car in the driveway as any more will block the neighbours entry/exit. There is plenty of street parking for other vehicles and there are no time limits or tickets required.

Guests are not permitted to enter or use the historical train carriage in the backyard.

When the glass back doors are open, they need to be propped by rock/wood to avoid the wind slamming them shut and potentially breaking the glass.

This was one of the very best places we have stayed in, and we are regular AB users. Everything about Laura and Rob's place was excellent. Its a few minutes out of central Freo, but if you have a car or use the bikes supplied that is no problem. it really is home from home, in the sense that they supply everything you might need. Its a fully functioning home unlike most Ikea fitted out Abs now. There is plenty of space and its full of character. Great place to stay and we would highly recommend it.

Hi Tim, thanks so much for the great review and more importantly the feedback. That's a really good point about the oven - could have explained to you but we do usually have it drawn on there. I will add that back on - must have erased off! So hapoy you enjoyed yourselves otherwise. Laura & Rob

We loved this place - it's totally magical and the pictures don't do it justice. It's close to the beach and lots of great cafes and restaurants. It's also quiet and very private and feels like you're in a little castle in the country. Thanks for having us - we'd love to come back.

Our family of four (daughters aged 12 and 13) stayed here for 3 nights. Laura's communication was prompt and friendly. Great location, close to Freo. Our bed was super comfy but daughters said their shared double bed was hard. Great water pressure in the shower! The TV was upstairs, during our stay it was 40 plus degrees, the down stairs air con didn't cool upstairs, watching the cricket was quite hot up there! Maybe a pedestal fan up there? Otherwise, loved staying there and would definitely recommend it. Thanks Laura!

What an unforgettable weekend! This home completely surpassed our expectations! It was homely and stylish with a quaint, serene garden area which provided a peaceful retreat from the city. All in all it satisfied our every need. We would love to stay here again sometime :)

We love road trips and camping, but our little Freo pad is our favourite place in the world.

We start the mornings by opening up the bedroom window, watching and listening to the birds outside. We usually have a cuppa on the seat out the front or in the hammock under the trees. Sometimes we walk around the corner to the quirky Cool Room Cafe where we pick up our favourite bread and wander in the antique store next door.

Weekend mornings are best spent down at Fremantle Markets. While we're there we'll often wander through the eclectic mix of shops at MANY 6160 too. It's always hard to choose where to grab breaky or lunch out of so many options! Little Creatures is always good for a local brew, George St has a few nice spots and we can't beat somewhere on the beach like Coast or Bib and Tucker.

Getting outside is mandatory for us, so we hop on the bikes or drive to Port or Leighton Beach for a swim or surf, or we walk down to the Swan River every day.

Dinner might be a BBQ out the back or we'll walk or ride into Fremantle CBD, East Fremantle or North Fremantle. Some of our regulars are Bread in Common, daily specials at the Left Bank pub on the river, burgers from next door in the back courtyard of Mrs Browns bar and take-away from Mother India which is just on the other side of Stirling Hwy.

There's live music for us to catch almost every night and often free - Fremantle Art Centre, Sunday afternoon jazz at Creatures Next Door and Mojos are great but it's always nice to stumble on small gigs at little venues or go to one of the bigger festivals.
