“Exceeded our expectations”
Reviewed 2 December 2014 for a stay in October 2014

person found this review helpful

We had figured that there would be several apartments here and that ours would not have the view across the river - we were hugely surprised that the photos absolutely do justice to the accommodation offered. The rented apartment occupies the whole of the ground floor and benefits from expansive windows to the adjoining wharf and river beyond. The owners live in a quite separate apartment up stairs, not that you would notice.

Offering three comfortable bedrooms, one with an ensuite bathroom and the other two sharing another bathroom, this apartment is more house sized, with complete kitchen, separate dining area and generously proportioned livingroom. The living areas, including the kitchen, dining area and a separate outdoor dining area, with gas barbecue occupy the wharf side of the apartment.

We had friends in from Tokyo and were delighted that this apartment exceeded our expectations. Slightly jaded in a few very minor areas, but easily forgiven for its terrific location, very good calibre of accommodation and lovely view; great value too.

We were particularly appreciative that the owner was happy to accept us as four guests for just one night, rather than imposing a multiple night minimum stay. Indeed, we had inbound friends arriving from Switzerland the following week and rather than just saying that "we would go back", we have already been back - just perfect for our requirements and highly recommended. The Thai restaurant in Port Fairy is a decent option for dinner too.

“Beautifully situated.”
Reviewed 11 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

When we attempted to book this lovely apartment we were auto moved to a site called Flipkey. This is an American company so the cost comes up as US dollars, also, it does not provide any means of checking any details with the owner until one has paid. This was a nusiance for us as I wanted to confirm the wheelchair access. In the end we just went with it as we had paid and just had to assume that wheelchair access meant wheelchair bathroom access as well. This was not the case. We are two senior couples with one person wheelchair bound. The apartment has lovely bedrooms and two bathrooms.The bathroom that has a front on toilet that allows transfer from wheelchair, but has a shower over the bath which is impossible for a disabled person. The other bathroom has a shower cubicle but has a fixed arm faucet which would be too difficult for the carer to manage, and also has a hob(too difficult and dangerous to get over when you can't walk) and no shower chair, so not really accessable. Our wheel chair person had to be sponge bathed in her wheel chair while we were at this location. The apartment itself is really lovely. Being able to walk out onto the walkway around the river was perfect and we thoroughly enjoyed our time at Port Fairy.

“Great position!”
Reviewed 24 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

My husband and I did a whirlwind road trip from Adelaide through to Lorne. Our first night we spent at this lovely waterfront accommodation.

We were very impressed with it's location on the estuary with the fishing boats moored right out front. It was very clean and spacious with outdoor table and verandah looking out onto the water.

It was excellent that we were able to just have the one room in a three bedroom house. Most owners would only rent out the accommodation if it was fully occupied. It's much nicer to have
a spacious house to spread out in rather than just a room in a hotel.

The parking is very convenient off street in the driveway - quite secure.

Port Fairy is a pretty little town with some excellent restaurants. We drove in because it was late but you could easily walk it from the accommodation.

I would definitely recommend staying here as a couple, family or friends travelling together.

“Charming Point Fairy”
Reviewed 3 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Point Fairy was the start of our road trip and a delightful surprise!
We were so charmed by our accommodation that we decided to stay in and have a BBQ so that we could fully enjoy the experience. The property was located right on the estuary with fishing boats as our neighbours. Lovingly cared for and tastefully appointed it was a charming home away from home. The owners were helpful and easily contactable. The only thing we didn't like was having to leave. We would love to visit again and we would stay for longer.
