About the property

This beautifully restored heritage listed cottage is perfect for both a holiday or business stay in Fremantle.

The interior is spacious and open plan. The pine flooring with authentic oriental rugs, gives a bright and cheerful atmosphere, as well as being easy to keep clean. The house has a deep verandah which offers shade on hot afternoons.

The sitting room has reverse-cycle air conditioning, a small gas fire and comfortable leather lounges. There is a TV, DVD, unlimited wireless internet and a modern kitchen.

The two main bedrooms situated at the front of the house have queen sized beds and overhead ceiling fans. The third bedroom, which can be closed off from the main sitting room has a king-sized bed which turns into two king-singles.

The bathroom has a shower/bath and double basins with a separate internal toilet.

To the rear of the cottage is a spacious covered area complete with a gas BBQ and outdoor furniture. The laundry is equipped with a washing machine and a dryer. Like all old Fremantle houses there is an outdoor toilet in the corner of the block, in addition to the internal one.

This is non-smoking accommodation - please respect our request and only smoke outside - thank you.



Location and transport

Mole End Cottage is situated in Walker Street, South Fremantle, a special place only 5 minutes from the centre of historic Fremantle, Western Australia's most visited destination.

Walker Street is only two streets back from the beautiful and family friendly South Beach. It is a no-through road that has minimal traffic. The beach is accessed via a path at the south end of the street.

Walker Street is a residential area with Mole End Cottage being the only short-term accommodation in the street so that when you stay here you will feel as if you are at home in your own Fremantle holiday house.

There is ample free parking in the street and one under cover bay beside the cottage however if you do not have a car you can hire bicycles from the local bike shop just around the corner and the nearest stop for the free CAT bus into the centre of Fremantle is only a 5 minute walk away.

Fremantle is well served by excellent public transport, both bus and train. Quite frankly if you are only interested in visiting Fremantle, you don't need a car.

Local Attractions

Nearby South Beach offers safe swimming and is a great kite surfing, canoeing and sailboarding area.

There is an extensive range of reasonably priced restaurants and cafes just around the corner in South Terrace including our local pub the South Beach Hotel and the State's if not Australia's best bakery - Wild Bakery.

Fremantle boasts a large number of attractions including the WA Maritime Museum, which houses the America's Cup winning yacht Australia II and the Ship Wreck Gallery, a world leading maritime archaeology institution that tells the story of the Dutch discovery of the Western Australian coast including the infamous Batavia wreck and mutiny.

The Fremantle Prison is world heritage listed and its tours have won multiple awards.

Fremantle is famous for its art and music scene - the Fremantle Art Centre being a "must" visit and with most pubs and clubs featuring live music.

The historic harbour, unlike most in the world is still open to the public and you can enjoy a coffee at B Shed while watching ships come and go.

About Jenny Longley

I left England to live in Western Australia over 40 years ago and have lived in the same house in South Fremantle since then. We live next door to Mole End Cottage which enables us to ensure that our guests have the best possible service while they are staying in the cottage.

Jenny Longley purchased this cottage in 1976

Why Jenny Longley chose South Fremantle

Our love of the beach led us to this area and over the years it has blossomed and become one of Perth's premier beachside destinations. The delight of this area is that it is close to the heart of Fremantle and yet is far enough away to be quiet and peaceful, with a safe beach within a short walking distance.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage is over 120 years old but was completely restored 20 years ago so that it has the ambience of a heritage house but has the convenience of new amenities. It is light and airy and open plan and has charming outdoor living areas.

It is in a friendly street with friendly neighbours.

Great place for a family stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Mole End Cottage. The property is really suitable for young kids and there are even toys and children's books to keep the kids occupied. Location is fantastic, close walk to the beach, playground just at the end of the street. Supermarkets are also very close by. The property is spacious and had everything we needed. Jenny was easy to reach if we ever had a question and accomodative to our needs. We had an enjoyable and relaxing stay and would love to return.

Classic Freo cottage is a great location.

  • 5 of 5

We loved this character cottage in South Freo for its fantastic location, well-appointed kitchen, and comfortable beds. Our family of 5 was comfortable, and Jenny was helpful throughout our stay. Would definitely recommend for self-catering holiday close to the beach and CAT buses to Freo.

Loveliest cottage in Fremantle

  • 5 of 5

We loved Mole End Cottage, with its proximity to Sth Fremantle, the beaches, great fresh seafood and the free bus. Our hosts made us feel most welcome. It was so comfortable we didn't want to leave.
