Hearn's Beachside Villas
Ranked #8 of 11 Hotels in Port Fairy
Reviewed 18 February 2015

My husband and I had two nights at Hearn's Beachside Villas. We were so happy and impressed with the accommodation. The rooms were clean and tidy, modern and extremely comfortable. You just had to walk out the front door to the beach. The walk along the beach and the surround area was beautiful. I would recommend this accommodation to anyone and look forward to one day returning.

My wife and I celebrated our 1st wedding anniversary at Hearns and it was the perfect place to escape the city life. Our huge bed was a great base to watch the waves rolling in and the Gas fire was a nice touch. With only a short 2 min drive to the town centre the location of the villas is also handy. We will definitely be recommending anyone heading to Port Fairy to stay at Hearns Beachside Villas.

Loved it here. We arrived late when it was dark and couldn't see the view from our apartment. In the morning we puled back the curtains and blinds and it was absolutely breathtaking. The apartment was spacious and meticulously clean. Some reviews on this site have criticised the fact there isn't a reception desk etc I actually felt it was a positive! Very relaxing, can just do your own thing. A beautiful beach is just at your doorstep.
This is not the place to stay if you want a 24 hour reception, or to have lots of activity and things to do around you. In fact we didn't even see any neighbours for the three nights we stayed. It is secluded, private and quiet. If you are looking for activity, nightlife, room service etc you are probably better off staying in Warrnambool. Port Fairy is a nice, but quiet town with some nice cafes and little stores but is certainly not a huge tourist hub.
Word of advice - you will need to bring mozzie repellant as they were queuing up outside the door when we got there. Not a big problem, you can still enjoy the view but just be prepared. Also, there is a fully equipped kitchen so you can bring milk, bread etc with you. There is an IGA in town (which closes at 8pm) where you can stock up on the essentials. The apartment also has a washing machine with built in dryer which is handy when you are on the road.
Didn't seem to be any internet (the folder in room said they were still working on it) so no Wifi that I was aware of. Just enjoy the views! I did get phone reception while there though so you could tether through your phone if you really wanted to!
Would definitely recommend!

Room Tip: We stayed in Villa 1 which was lovely

Perfect romantic hideaway. Take your wine from Your Barossa vineyard tours and enjoy the stars, the sea and the silence.

Modern, sleek, clean and amazingly equipped - washing machine, dishwasher, spa, BBQ etc

We fell in love with it and didn't want to leave.

The views are to die for. Perfect place to unwind.

Designed for privacy, in an isolated location on outskirts of town, this is a great place to get away from it all for a few days. It is absolutely peaceful, with no sounds except the rush of the waves on the rocky shore.

Some reviewers have described the villas as impersonal, poorly serviced, etc. The flip side to that, of course, is that if you want to get away by yourselves it is a great place. Not only are there no (sometimes annoying, and overbearing) hosts and you never have to worry about fitting your schedule in with the staff servicing the rooms daily, but you are totally isolated, if you wish, from guests in neighbouring units, each having a private view of the ocean.

The villas are reasonably modern, well furnished and comfortable. The kitchen contains the basic necessities to get by - especially considering there are so many good restaurants in town who'd want to cook anyway, other than to enjoy a fresh local lobster and bottle of wine as the waves lap the shore in the moonlight.

The minimum service model works well in this setting, although I felt that the costs saved should be better recognised in the daily rates, which are quite high for what you get.
