Built in 1903 by convict labourers this property was originally occupied by a Master Mariner who plied his trade from the still operational Port of Fremantle.
Later occupied by a Customs Clerk and a School Master, this home exudes the unique character of Fremantle's past and plays a significant role in our cultural heritage.
Mariner's Cottage is fully self contained with all the modern conveniences you would expect on holiday including all you require in the kitchen, a gas fire in winter, fans for summer and full laundry facilities.
The master bedroom and second bedroom both feature a queen size bed and the third bedroom has 2 singles.
Relax on the love seat, take a piss in the tardis (pommy humour for the outside loo) or relax on the lounge (three recliners with drinks holders included) and watch a DVD.
Recline in the clawfoot bath in the immaculate white tiled bathroom or take a shower - the choice is yours. And yes, there is a inside loo as well.
Off street parking for 2 cars is provided at the rear of the property. This easily parks a dual cab ute or 4wd and a small family car.
Walk to Freo in a couple of minutes, eat at The Governors pub and restaurant, enjoy a multi cultural takeaway or sit back with a glass of wine - its all on your door step.
The trams may not rattle down Hampton Road anymore, but you can still jump on/off the FREE local bus and visit all the attractions of Fremantle.
I know that you will enjoy the rustic yet modern charms of this fabulous home so dont hesitate, send a reservation enquiry now to secure your booking.
Fremantle is recognised as the best preserved 19th Century seaport in the world. Over 150 buildings in the port city are classified by the National Trust, These include: The Round House which was built in 1831 & is the oldest public building in W.A, The Esplanade Hotel which was built in 1890s and the Fremantle Prison which was built by convict labour in the 1850s.
Fremantle was establlished in 1829 as a port for the fledgling Swan River Colony and was the major city in Western Australia for much of its early history. Fremantle became a city in its own right by 1929, and survived the building demolitions of the 1890s and the 1960s. The city emerged in 1987 when it was the host city for the Americas Cup sailing challenge, as a city rich in heritage and character.
?Freo? as it is also know to the locals, is home to a 500-strong fishing fleet and a vast number of yachts and pleasure craft. Two significant historical replica ships were built here: The HMS Endeavour and the Duyfken which was the first Dutch vessel to chart the Australian coastline in 1666.
The port city of Fremantle is located at the mouth of the Swan River on the West Coast of Western Australia and is part of the Perth metropolitan area. Perth city is only 20 kms away which is a 25 minute cab ride or 30 minute trip by train.
Fremantle is much more than an architectural time capsule. It provides a unique opportunity for visitors to experience and enjoy a range of cultural activities in a relaxed atmosphere. A browse through the markets or leisurely stop at one of the numerous cafes and restaurants will complement your exploration of the arts, making a visit to Fremantle a rich and rewarding experience.
We stayed 2 nights with a small group of friends. this property represents great value for money and is very acceptable in comfort and accessibility. we walked into Fremantle to enjoy activities with friends, restaurants and the nightlife. Highly recommend for couples, smalll groups and families. only flaw is parking could be difficult for larger vehicles and guests may be tempted to use neighbouring parking facilities.0 people found this review to be helpful. 0 people found this review to not be helpful.
Mariners Cottage is a charming, yet spacious cottage in the heart of Fremantle. The beds were very comfy and we felt at home with the extremely comfy lounge and big TV. The street noise bothered me on the first night but it didn't worry me for the rest of our stay. The parking was a little tricky but we just parked our cars and then walked or caught the free CAT bus everywhere.0 people found this review to be helpful. 0 people found this review to not be helpful.
The Mariners Cottage was interesting. we did like the large Tv and the fireplace, and kitchen and the Beds were comfy. the street traffic was a little loud for us though as we are lite sleepers.
