Beautifully secluded and surrounded by a grove of olive trees, the Douro Road Retreat is a modern fully-equipped hideaway and all Fremantle’s main attractions are within walking distance or a short, free bus trip away. South Beach, supermarkets, local pubs and restaurants are only a few minutes away. The reticulated gardens have several places to relax in and you can help yourself to our organically grown herbs if you wish to create your own special meals! Double French doors open onto the sheltered alfresco area where you can soak up the fresh South Fremantle ocean air.

Within walking distance of Fremantle South Beach and with off-street parking, this one bedroom apartment is very well equipped with air conditioning, gas cooker, washing machine, clothes drier, bath and walk-in shower. With its wide veranda, I would expect the room to stay quite cool...More

We really enjoyed our stay. The apartment was spotless and the owners, Joy and Tony, were really lovely. Walking distance to beach and just over 5 min drive to lovely Coogee Beach!
