You'll be so thrilled when you enter this tranquil space. Brand new renovation, luxurious bedding & amenities, included a deep soak tub. Steeped in history, Tarrington Cottage oozes warmth & comfort, with King bed, small kitchenette, sink, bar fridge, DeLonghi coffee machine, kettle, television, microwave, WIFI & welcoming treats!! Perfectly central to the township, restaurants, the wharf, Griffiths Island, beaches and park walks. Complete privacy in a quiet street... what more could you want?

The space
This light and bright studio room is the perfect romantic getaway, or private space to call "home" whilst away on business. It has everything you would hope for in boutique luxury accommodation, but without the price tag. "Tarrington Cottage" is rich with history but boasts all the modern comforts after a full renovation was completed in August 2017. Snuggle into your inviting bed with waffle weave doona, perfect pillows and electric blankets to keep you toasty and warm in the winter months, and air conditioning and ceiling fan for summer cooling. Breakfast is not included, however the room has complimentary nibbles, bubbles upon arrival, bottled water, and other treats to keep you smiling during your stay. Tea and Coffee facilities (including espresso machine) are provided as well as a toaster, bar fridge and microwave, but NO STOVE or OVEN. If you need a coffee fix, I recommend 'Driftwood’! For breakfast stroll down the street for a bite at 'Bank Street & Co.' , ‘The Farmer’s Wife’ or the long-time favourite 'Rebecca's'. For dinner or bar drinks 'The Merrijig' is literally steps away from your front door on Campbell Street overlooking the Wharf. I can also recommend other fantastic eateries in town such as 'Coffin Sally' pizzas, 'Gladioli’ for fine dining, ‘Conlan's Wine Store', ‘Gregory’s’, ‘Lemongrass Thai’, yummo! I recommend starting your day however with a walk around Griffiths Island, or along the wharf and beaches of Port Fairy, before hitting the town for a bit of retail therapy. The indoor pool facility and gym is in sight from the cottage, so you can always head off for a dip, or exercise class if you feel inspired! Otherwise, I suggest soaking in a bubble bath, before nestling into bed with a Netflix movie, or flicking through the magazines provided, and make the most of this beautiful luxury retreat while you can.

Where you’ll be

Port Fairy, Victoria, Australia

Port Fairy was voted the most liveable town in the WORLD in 2012 for a population under 20,000 - this is a novel fact for Port Fairy locals, but no surprise! This town is magical for visitors to the area, with all you need or want as residents. There's a plethora of restaurants to choose from, open year-round, both fine-dining and casual. There's a fabulous selection of fashion shops - ladies, you won't be disappointed! There's a supermarket, a hardware store, two primary schools, an indoor pool, gym, and all the sporting facilities desired. The community is fabulous and super friendly, and there's always a buzz around town. Port Fairy has festivals and activities throughout the year including a fortnightly market (weekly through Summer), the renowned Folk Festival in March, Port Fairy Winter Weekends, the Spring Music Festival, a Jazz Festival and plenty of summer activities to keep you entertained, like surf & paddle-board lessons, boat trips, fishing, walks, cycling groups and much more. There's history aplenty, art galore, a regular seal at the wharf, and whales that pop by sporadically, not to mention plenty of nearby tourist attractions. So come visit us, put your feet up, get out of the weather extremities and enjoy all that Port Fairy has to offer. I recommend visiting the Visitor Information Centre upon arrival to find out more...

I love being creative, gardening, cooking, house design, people and Port Fairy! My favourite part of the day is setting off for an early morning walk along East Beach, watching the sun rise over the ocean... just divine. I feel so lucky to live in this gorgeous town and look forward to sharing its hidden treasures with you too!

During your stay

There is a lockbox for convenient self-check-in. I love meeting people, and will usually be only a stones throw away (if not at home) but I respect that some guests prefer privacy on their holidays. You have a private entrance and can come and go as you please. Message me at any time if you'd like to meet.
