Rated 5 out of 5 by from My partner and I stayed in Freo Espresso for a week. The building is in a fantastic location, easy walking distance to everything in central Fremantle as well as trains, ferries and buses. The owners were really helpful and have made sure the apartment is equipped with everything you could need for a comfortable stay. As an added bonus it is the basis for the apartment block that features in Tim Winton's new book Eyrie!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from After spending 7 nights in an overpriced and grotty hotel I was very fortunate to stumble across this apartment. Great rates matched the great location that Fremantle has to offer, very clean and well equipped. The owners are as friendly and helpful as you will meet anywhere! If needed I would certainly return and wouldn't hesitate to recommend to family, friends and business colleagues.
