“Outstanding” Business Traveller Tired of Hotels?
Rather than stay in the 'usual' Fremantle hotel, we opted for Coral Cottage this time. Our 6-day experience was as follows:
At 5am we started the day a sunrise jog along the beachside path followed by a swim with the local early-risers at South Beach.
We returned to to the Cottage and delved into the basket of goodies provided by Judy and Hugh ...honey roasted almond muesli, local organic yoghurt & milk, Wa roasted biodynamic coffee bean, seeded sourdough from the bakery across the street, fresh eggs, tomatoes, mangoes ...the list goes on.
Off to work by 730am the cottage is an easy walk to Fremantle Train Station.
Returning home in the evening we were able to pause and appreciate the private sunny sandstone encrusted courtyard, bottle of cold crisp white wine and macadamias (also part of the hamper provided by Judy and Hugh). South Fremantle beats Fremantle hands-down when it comes to dining venues, lacking pretensions and devoid of 'bling'. Just great food!
Shower and don a fluffy bathrobe in the evening...settle down in the cosy living room ...and discover more goodies...prizewinning books that could keep you reading for a year, local chocolates, an exhaustive selection of CDs.
I am hesitant to write such a positive review because I work in Fremantle and Perth frequently and I fear the cottage will become so popular that I will not be able to get a booking! However, this property is so outstanding, and the owners so engaging and pleasant that I am compelled to speak the truth. A truly memorable experience for all the right reasons.
