Stay as Fremantle locals do in the gorgeous, restored, heritage-listed Mole End cottage on Walker Street in South Fremantle. A cheery, spacious open plan welcomes you. Comfy leather lounges, Netflix-equipped TV, Wi-Fi, games, and books take care of all entertainment needs. Two bedrooms have queen-size beds while the smaller one has a king single which can be split. If you love outdoor living, you will fall in love with the wooden deck and the dreamy gazebo in the garden. The outdoor grill is a great touch, especially if you want to enjoy an evening of cooking with your travel companions. However, it is the attention to detail which steals your heart. A stocked kitchen, an amazing book collection, tea lights for the patio, etc. are just some aspects which make Mole End cottage so warm and welcoming.

Whimsy is the catchphrase of the 19th-century Cool house, the former abode of Fremantle iconic artist Rebecca Cool. If you appreciate the quirky and the avant-garde, head to the Cool house! The whimsy begins right from the colorful pathway lined with green, flowering bushes. The sedate living room clashes brilliantly with the neon-colored kitchen-cum-dining space. The four homely bedrooms and two bathrooms are adequately furnished, with the fourth bedroom opening to the rear garden. The front porch, alfresco dining area, larger-than-life abstract artwork, colorful chandeliers, brick fireplace, muralled walls, and vintage mirrors and coat racks are what make the Cool house so singularly exceptional. Located on McLaren street in South Fremantle and a stone’s throw from the beach, this heritage-listed timber worker’s Stayz Fremantle cottage makes for an exceptional stay!
