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.
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.
You will have access to our entire home, however the historical train carriage in the backyard will not be accessible.
Interaction with guests
You will have our place all to yourself, however we are very responsive to communications. Should you need anything during your stay, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
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.
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.
