It is close to the culinary hub of South Fremantle yet quiet, very secluded, and has an ambience which is hard to beat. This charming space is the perfect place in which to relax, to escape the pressures of contemporary living whilst being in instant reach of all facilities, the sea, and everything Fremantle has on offer. On arrival we give you a bottle of fine Vasse Felix, Western Australian, wine, local chocolates, flowers, plus a breakfast hamper for your first morning. This holds fruit, local jam, WA roasted coffee beans, gourmet tea...Welcome to Silver Street Studio Retreat. As a summer or winter retreat, the award winning Silver Street Studio and residence is a very special place. This spacious, private, hideaway is a two story, stand alone building hidden behind high limestone walls. It is close to the culinary hub of South Fremantle yet quiet, very secluded, and has an ambience which is hard to beat. This charming space is the perfect place in which to relax, to escape the pressures of contemporary living whilst being in instant reach of all facilities, the sea, and everything Fremantle has on offer. On arrival we give you a bottle of fine Vasse Felix, Western Australian, wine, local chocolates, flowers, plus a breakfast hamper for your first morning. This holds fruit, local jam, WA roasted coffee beans, gourmet teas and freshly baked bread from our local Swiss bakery at the end of the street. The Studio is the perfect place in which to relax, and escape the pressures of contemporary living. The space is very private whilst being within instant reach of South Fremantle's culinary hub, wonderful local facilities and everything Fremantle' has to offer. Originally built to house artists’ studios and a gallery, 'Silver Street' has now been thoughtfully converted into a wonderfully creative, comfortable and eclectic residence. Constructed from large local limestone blocks rescued from a former Fremantle church, magnificent one hundred year old timbers from Rob's Jetty (South Fremantle) and other fascinating items of memorabilia including a turret from the old Swanbourne Hospital. The building speaks to local history, contemporary art and old world charm. On arrival our guests enter the property through a small wooden door within a 'medieval' gate. Ivy trails over high limestone walls which seclude a lush courtyard garden. In summer, this area is shaded by a plane tree, a poinciana, an olive tree, a weeping mulberry, and a grape vine. This is an ideal setting for a private breakfast, a leisurely lunch, or a romantic evening BBQ. Huge glass sliding doors connect this leafy outdoor area to the downstairs living space which is open-plan, has a well equipped kitchen, a dining area and comfortable lounge. Rugs, furnishings, and the character of the architecture create a beautiful ambience. The upper studio level, originally used for producing ceramics, is now reached internally via a stylish industrial staircase. The bedroom has a very comfortable queen size bed, supplied with best quality bedding and soft linen sheets. A small mezzanine connects this area to the bathroom /dressing room. This large upstairs room opens onto the north facing balcony, the perfect spot for a sumptuous bath under the stars! The former kiln room, to the left of the balcony is now a peaceful reading/meditation room - and is occasionally used as a spare bedroom. The downstairs utility room, opposite the downstairs toilet, houses our two bicycles are available for our guests to enjoy when exploring Fremantle and the coastal heathlands. The Studio is not a suitable space for active toddlers, children, the frail or the very elderly but it is a truly rewarding place for the adventurer, the romantic and those with creative spirit! COVID cleaning and requirements: Since the onset of COVID, we have been taking a minimum stay of 4 night stays and have decided to close for 2 days either side of each booking in order to carry out the required deep clean. Thank you for your understanding. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: TAXFILENUMBERPROVIDED

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

A perfect staycation
What an amazing stay! We stayed here as part of our recent honeymoon. The owner left a beautiful hamper and wine for both of us to enjoy. The accomodation is absolutely beautiful and perfectly located close by restaurants and cafes. The owner was very flexible given we had to change our dates around a few times for our wedding, of which we really appreciated. Absolutely recommended a stay, we will be returning!!

Perth’s best kept secret
My absolute favourite place to stay in Perth! I first stayed on my wedding night and we returned for our anniversary recently. As soon as you enter through the hobbit door it is like entering an oasis and you instantly feel life’s worries disappear. I feel like I am not in Perth and it is a great place for a staycation or romantic getaway. The place is bigger than it looks in photos and there is lots of little spots to relax in. So easy to walk to cafes, shops, bars and restaurants as well as the beach. The host Judy is so lovely and always replies to text and emails promptly and is flexible and punctual when meeting for key exchange. Have already recommended to a friend who is also staying for her wedding plus many more who asked where this magical place was when I shared some photos on social media recently.

South Freo Fantastic
The Silver Street Studio is certainly one of the most enjoyable places I have ever stayed. It is a wonderful mix of eclectic furnishings, rustic architecture and a bountiful courtyard garden, not to mention an outdoor bath where you can bathe under the stars in privacy. Judy and Hugh are welcoming hosts providing a very generous provision basket of fruits, cheese, a good bottle of wine to help you settle in and any assistance should you need during your stay. The Studio for all its tranquil seclusion is in a fantastic locale with only a very short walk to good cafes, pubs, restaurants and the beach.

A beautiful, private, character-filled space that you'll want to spend more than three nights in.
Silver Street Studio is in a great location with easy access to Fremantle by a free bus service but also within easy walking distance of two beautiful beaches and a great range of restaurants and cafes. Although it is centrally located, it is quiet and private because it is tucked behind a beautiful old stone wall. The furnishings and decor are one-of-a-kind and beautifully styled in a unique space. The only thing I was disappointed by was that I didn't stay long enough to even start reading all the books I wanted to read. Host Judy was helpful but unobtrusive and the stunning welcome hamper was abundant and filled with high quality products.

Perfect accommodation to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary
We stayed 3 nights at Silver Street Cottage for our 25th wedding anniversary, we could not have picked a more perfect place. It was unique, peaceful, relaxing, quirky artistic, and in a beautiful location, close to the beach, cafes and markets. We were greeted on arrival by our friendly hosts, and a very generous and delicious vegan hamper, which we appreciated greatly. I would highly recommend this beautiful accommodation, we could have spent longer here and still not found all the joy and artistic quirkiness this place has to offer!

Fantastic getaway / retreat with easy access to everything you need yet everything you need inside. Absolutely stunning!
My husband and I visited this place 5 months ago for our anniversary and I talk about it all the time! It’s a 30sec walk to cafes, restaurants and shops and the hosts are the epitome of the word. They have put their heart and soul into restoring this beautiful art studio into a retreat for anyone who wants to be near Fremantle amenities but feel completely secluded. We had no need to leave this place but only did for the adventure. It feels like you’re in another country yet it’s just down the road. Below is a poem I wrote in their guest book that I think wraps this review up nicely: A haven in the jungle, a home away from home, this quaint creative space, is a perfect place to roam. The trains they toot on past as they carry goods away, and the memories are built even on a rainy day. A warm inviting couch with a wooden coffee table, the lamps light up the artwork in this crooked kind of stable. Many little touches that make this place so great like the hamper full of homemade snacks and cookies on a plate. SilverCoralFreo with a tree that grows inside, it touches all the hearts of the people who reside. In its quirky little rooms that have character and charm with a table lit by sunlight to engage your writing arm. A bathtub on the deck and a meditation room, this endearing little studio has flowers in full bloom. This surprising little getaway my husband organised for our one year anniversary but oh how time it flies. A few days nestled in this place has left us both renewed, so thank you Hugh and Judy for the home and all the food.

Idyllic retreat in Fremantle
Silver Street Studio couldn't be improved upon for a comfortable, convenient and interesting apartment in Fremantle. Filled with books, art works and reclaimed artifacts from everywhere, it provides accommodation for discerning travellers that it would be hard to beat. It is close to shops, cafes, restaurants and transport, but remains quiet and secluded with a delightful patio garden shaded by trees and shrubs and an open plan living area where one can relax in comfort. We so enjoyed our time there that we are hoping to come back in 2020.

The mainline station is a 10 minute walk, or a short bus ride, for those wanting to go into Perth and beyond.
