Holiday Rental House
Welcome to Coral Street Cottage! This little heritage gem is one of three remaining, single fronted, fishermen's cottages built in the late1890s. Shaded by plane trees in a quiet leafy location, opposite a small park, and only a short stroll from Fremantle sailing Club, the Cottage is in a prime spot. It feels nicely secluded and yet is so close to all facilities. The nearest café is just 50 metres away on South Terrace in South Fremantle’s culinary hub.There are numerous good eateries to choose from and a good selection of innovative food outlets to discover such as the two excellent artisanal bakeries, a gourmet Italian supermarket, a vegan ice creamery, a renowned health food shop and more. You could also meander south, towards South Beach, and explore the various boutique gift shops an...Welcome to Coral Street Cottage! This little heritage gem is one of three remaining, single fronted, fishermen's cottages built in the late1890s. Shaded by plane trees in a quiet leafy location, opposite a small park, and only a short stroll from Fremantle sailing Club, the Cottage is in a prime spot. It feels nicely secluded and yet is so close to all facilities. The nearest café is just 50 metres away on South Terrace in South Fremantle’s culinary hub.There are numerous good eateries to choose from and a good selection of innovative food outlets to discover such as the two excellent artisanal bakeries, a gourmet Italian supermarket, a vegan ice creamery, a renowned health food shop and more. You could also meander south, towards South Beach, and explore the various boutique gift shops and galleries along the way...... or head in a northerly direction to soak up all this lovely Victorian fishing port has on offer. The Cottage is a perfect getaway. You will find a stylish ‘home’ full of warmth, character, and classic Freo' charm. The main bedroom is beautifully furnished. The bed is extremely comfortable, has quality, white, laundered, sheets and a French linen throw. The front room (formerly the second bedroom) has now been tastefully converted into an extra sitting room where silk curtains brush wooden floor boards, and the cosy leather lounge and easy chairs make it a great TV room. A jet master ‘Victorian’ fire adds warmth in the winter months. There is an LCDTV, Foxtel, and DVD available. You can also curl up with a great holiday read from our wide variety of books. The kitchen is spacious, well equipped and includes a Miele dish washer. The original wood stove is still in place to show the passing of time alongside the modern cooker. The kitchen leads into the rear dining/ sitting room which has a gas pot belly fire for winter and a comfy reading nook. French doors open onto a Mediterranean courtyard garden with BBQ and the outside eating area for summer. The bathroom opens from the sitting room. It is also equipped with a very efficient Asco washing machine and a dryer. Coral Cottage is very private and the high limestone walled courtyard provides an ideal setting for intimate alfresco dining. Although perfect for a couple, we do also have an extra single bed and/or a cot for a little one that we can put up if requested. Originally on the shoreline until land reclamation in the 1900s, the cottage is now fronted by a small park which leads onto Marine Terrace and Fisherman's Wharf. Only a short stroll from Fremantle Sailing Club and South Beach to your left and Fishing Boat harbour and Central Fremantle to your right, Coral Street Cottage is in the perfect location for a relaxing stay near all facilities. The kitchen is well equipped and leads to a dining extension to the rear of the cottage with high ceilings and bay window adds unique character. French doors lead onto a Mediterranian garden where lemon, lime, quava, bay and a mulberry tree grow with rosemary and a good selection of herbs - and if you don't wish to dine in, you are just a stone's throw from South Fremantle's culinary hub!

About the neighbourhood
Coral Street cottage is in a superb location - the most beautiful shady corner of South Fremantle, opposite a small park. We, the owners, just live next door so have first hand experience of this is lovely neighbourhood. We are close to the beach and a short stroll to the central city of Fremantle. South Fremantle's 'hip' culinary hub is just at the end of our quiet little street - and there is plenty to feed both body and soul. There's no need for a car as most things are walkable. A short stroll to the main line station and you can travel to Perth and beyond. The free CAT bus stops at the end of the road and does a circular trip around Fremantle, stopping at heritage sites and main tourist attractions. Bike hire also easily organised.
Getting around
The most convenient way to see the sites of Fremantle is either by walking, bike, bus or even the Fremantle tram! To travel further afield there are many great day trips available through the Fremantle Tourist Office. It is also easy to hire a car locally and/or get to the train into Perth. The centre of Perth also has a FREE CAT bus service which can be very handy.
