Beautiful, renovated two-story townhouse with loads of charm in a quiet central Fremantle location, on free bus route, or easy for walking, biking. Sleeps up to five. Spacious living/dining, new kitchen, bathroom, laundry, and internal courtyard with barbecue. Within a few steps of the developing Wray Ave area, easy way to central Freo and the Cappuccino Strip, or a 15 min walk or free bus ride to South Beach. This is a prime Fremantle location!
Spacious and light, this is an easy and charming place to stay. It is in the delightful Primaries complex which fronts onto South Terrace, but quiet because access is from neighborhood streets Russell and Grey. The entire complex was once one of Fremantle's woolstores, as the overhead beams and outside brick walls bear witness.
The open plan ground floor (kitchen, dining, living and laundry with WC) includes a private, green internal courtyard with gas bbq, table and chairs. Outside the front door, a small external paved area and bench allow you to relax, read and chat with passersby. You'll likely meet your friendly neighbors, most are full time residents.
The kitchen is very well equipped - I love to cook and hope you make use of it when you are not eating out in Fremantle's great cafes.
Two large bedrooms easily accommodate 4, with a sofa bed in a semi-open mezzanine room for another, possibly a child. Please note there is only one bathroom, but 2 toilets, one upstairs and one downstairs in the laundry.
This town house is a perfect base from which to explore Fremantle’s many and varied attractions, on foot or via the free CAT bus, which stops steps from the door. 2 minutes away are Fremantle Hospital and Wray Ave with the wonderful Galati’s Deli and Frank’s Gourmet Butcher, 4 distinctly different cafes and some great shopping. Downtown Fremantle is an easy 5 min walk, with the cappuccino strip, the Fishing Boat Harbour for fish and chips and sunsets, the Fremantle Markets, and more. In the opposite direction, take a 15 minute stroll to South Beach and its cafes, or you might be lured into one of the many cafes passed on your route. 200m from the door, connect with a dedicated bike and walker path that runs from South Beach past the Fishing Boat Harbour, the port, and around to the river.
This townhouse is 3 floors, 2 of which, ground and second floor, are available to you. The ground floor has front door, living room, dining room, laundry (with WC), kitchen, private courtyard and stairs. On the second floor you'll find the main bedroom with a king size bed, second
bedroom with a queen bed, bathroom, and a mezzanine floor with a sofa bed (not private - suitable for a child).
A few days before you are due to stay, I will email you instructions for the lockbox on the external wall. There will be one key in the lockbox, and another on the dining room table.
Look for the white binder downstairs on one of the tables. It will give you information you need about the house and the area, but you can email me as well for any answers to specific questions re what Fremantle has to offer, and for insider information. When we are here, we are constantly trying new cafes and generally enjoying everything Fremantle has to offer. And that is a lot!

If the weather is hot, it is wise to leave all blinds closed during the day, and the evaporative air on. The switch for the zircon is in the master bedroom, on the wall by the dean and light switch.
If the weather is cold, the gas heater in the living room does far more than it looks like it is capable of. Hold down the button and count to ten. if it doesn't ignite let is rest a minute and try again, holding down for longer.
This is my home for about 5 months of the year. Please treat it as you would your own place.
No pets, please, and no smoking.
