Drift House is beachy, luxurious and totally romantic
The perfect base for exploring the far western coast of Victoria, or doing absolutely nothing at all.
Drift House is an award winning, six suite retreat in Port Fairy, one of Australia’s most beautiful heritage towns.
Drift House set out with a simple aim to build the best accommodation in regional Victoria.
Cast anchor at Drift House hotel in Port Fairy, whose masterclass on beach-boutique features pops of colour, salvaged timber and bathrooms decorated with Japanese tiles. Instead of a restaurant, you’ll have breakfast in the stylish salon. In the place of formal staff, you have two charming owners acting as hosts.
Designed by award winning design architects, Drift House is a property of contrasts consisting of 6 private suites each with an individual design resulting in modern, cutting edge and superbly comfortable environment. The interiors are flooded with light and furnished with eye-catching contemporary pieces, creating a striking contrast with the building’s historic façade.
The Drift House approach to responsible tourism is the result of own personal passion for, and commitment to the environment and community within which we live. We do all the things we do because we want to and we believe that they are the right things to do.
Rooms have a generous maxibar as well as Nespresso machine. There’s a comfortable library, a rectangular 10m solar-heated pool in the gardens, shielded by a reclaimed rock wall and of course, there is the beach close by.
Port Fairy is an historic seaside village, 290kms southwest of Melbourne.
It’s been voted the “Most Liveable Community in the World”. Nestled at the very end of the Great Ocean Road it stands guard over the mouth of the Moyne River and overlooks one of the most beautiful stretches of coastline in Australia. There is much to do from the Shipwreck Heritage Walk or Griffiths Island Lighthouse Walk.
