Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

INSTAGRAM @sommarhusportfairy

Featuring 3 bedrooms, Sommarhus is great for couples or a small family wishing to spend lazy days at the beach, wandering around the historic township, sipping on a coffee in Sackville Street or simply lazing in the secluded large backyard enjoying the garden, birdlife or reading a book.

Open up the house during those warm summer days + feel the cool ocean breeze (please note Sommarhus has NO air conditioning but outside awnings to keep the house cool), whilst in the winter months enjoy the cosy couches and gas log fire whilst perhaps reading or enjoying Netflix. Alternatively sit under the large sheltered back patio which is a little favorite to bask in the winter sun and enjoy the garden over brunch!

Fully self contained home with carport for two cars.

The kitchen has been decorated for those who love preparing good food + is well set up with good quality equipment + utensils including a coffee pod machine. The pantry contains basic ingredients + the garden is full of fresh herbs + fruit trees. Breakfast provisions are supplied (variety of cereals, spreads, free range eggs from our chooks (if laying!), milk + bread). There is a BBQ that you are welcome to use.

Lovely big bathroom with bath and shower (toilet is NOT separate). An additional outdoor hot + cold shower (it is very private + sheltered) is a great addition to wash away that salt + sand or to just enjoy the outdoors!

We take booking for up to 6 people maximum (please note bedding consists of 2 x Queen + 2 x Single (one of which is a pull out trundle bed). Please note our rates are based on 4 guests. $25/guest/night will be added for a 5th + 6th guest (excluding infants not occupying a bed).

Well behaved outdoor pets are welcome. Please note: pets are not permitted inside the house but are welcome to sleep in the attached laundry. The backyard is not lockable but we have sturdy farm gates for pets so please consider this.

A portacot, IKEA high chair + pram can be organised for your little one too by request when booking.

We are located in a lovely quiet area of Port Fairy, on a Norfolk Pine lined street close to the Showgrounds. We are 1.5km to East Beach (patrolled beach) and a 1.3 km (15 minutes maximum) leisurely stroll to Sackville Street (shops, cafes etc). We also have two vintage style bikes you are welcome to borrow (please byo helmets).

Guests, please note prior to booking:

This is our happy place that we have spent several years renovating + now share with our little girl. We expect that guests will treat Sommarhus as they would treat their own property + possessions. This includes leaving our home in the same clean and tidy condition that we will leave it for you to enjoy. We are pretty relaxed + love sharing our home with like minded people but if this is something you do not envisage yourself doing, our house is probably not for you - Sommarhus is not a hotel, it's a home!

Accidents can happen + rather than charging a bond we'd just love if you can let us know of any breakages so we can sort something out.

Sommarhus is not suitable for parties or large groups of visitors. Please be mindful that our neighbours are all permanent residents + friends, some elderly and some with small children + whilst you should feel free to be comfortable + enjoy your stay, noise should be kept to a minimum please.

Cool in summer, cosy in winter, happy holidays!

Highly recommend. It’s the small touches that make Sommarhus #1. Feels just like home. With beautiful breakfast supplies & natural feel through out. Oh and wind rain hail or shine. Get in the outdoor shower. Amazing

Your host will do everything she can to ensure your stay is A1. Xxx

Fantastic holiday place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Sommarhus. I can't recommend this house highly enough. Everything was beautifully ready for us when we arrived and we made ourselves very much at home. Lovely furnishings and decorating touches makes you feel as if you're at a hotel as much as a house you'd happily live in! Stocked with breakfast items, condiments as well as bathroom toiletries - they have thought of everything you'll need. Great backyard too for sitting and enjoying the weather or eating a meal on the deck, and very access to town without being in the midst of it all. Can't wait to stay again!
