1853 On Market

A light filled lounge room in a heritage Airbnb in Fremantle

This immaculate art filled heritage beauty oozes old Freo charm, with its hardwood floors, high ceilings and super special stained glass windows, all backed up by the modern conveniences you need. 1853 On Market is set within the iconic heritage listed Higham building (built in 1853), which is superbly located smack bang on the main cafe and restaurant strip for all your eating and drinking adventures. It also boasts large TVs in both rooms, lush queen beds, electric blinds, dimmable skylights and double glazing to keep the noise out, so good luck pulling yourself outta bed at this restful getaway.

Plympton Summer House

Plympton Summer House

Look no further than Plympton Summer House for a luxe poolside staycation not too far from home. This super stylish five bedroom home is brimming with natural light, coastal-inspired furniture, leafy greens and summery vibes. You could easily spend all day and night lounging by the pool and sipping drinks in the outdoor entertaining area, but when you're ready to get up and go, walk to the iconic bars and trendy boutiques nearby. 

Amherst Cottage

Amherst Cottage Airbnb in Fremantle

It doesn't get much more Freo than this charming two-bed colonial cottage. Tucked away from the action (but not too far) in a quiet street, the art-filled character home is the ideal pad for a weekend in Freo. You're walking distance from a bunch of awesome bars and restaurants but we reckon the lush outdoor deck is calling for you to spend a balmy evening in.

Silver Street Studios

Silver Street Studios is likely to be different to any Airbnb you've ever stayed in. This South Freo space was previously an artist's studio and a gallery and is now an award-winning retreat, with breathtaking high ceilings and a rustic design, plenty of nooks and crannies, colourful rugs scattered on the floor and a lush outdoor area. Did we mention there's also an outdoor tub to soak yourself in after a day of beaching and brunching? 

Poets Harbour

Poets Harbour, Fremantle Airbnb

It's not too hard to imagine cosying up in this beautiful architecturally designed Fremantle Airbnb. From its lofty ceilings and character charm to its quality furnishings and lush linens, Poets Harbour is the ultimate den of relaxation for two.

The Bank Fremantle

The Bank, Fremantle Airbnb

Built in 1904, this renovated heritage beauty is set inside a former bank. Inside the two-bedroom loft, it's light and bright and kitted out with stunning art pieces and everything you could ever need. The real beauty of this place though, lies in its handy central location, so you can hit up the best drinking and dining joints Freo has to offer.

The Loft House

This home has the handcrafted spiral staircase of our dreams. If that isn't wow enough, this open-plan loft home captivates with its exposed brickwork, local artwork and clever design. Each beautiful space flows into the other, with bi-fold doors off the living room that bring the beauty of nature inside with your own alfresco deck area. Upstairs, your main bedroom and luxe bathroom await, including your own private balcony to watch the sunset. To round out your 5-star staycation, wander down to Madalena's Bar at the end of the street for some freshly-caught seafood and a local vino to match. 

Orcades & Karoa

Prepare to romanticise everything inside this light-filled loft in Freo's historic West End. Every inch of this three-storey home feels like it was lifted out of a cool interior design mag and oozes understated beauty. Spend your days cafe exploring Freo's iconic Cappuccino Strip before heading to nearby enoteca, Vin Populi, for a gorg array of Italian eats and drinks. When you're done, you can head home for a nightcap on the street front balcony before retiring to your cosy bedroom.
