Behind a graceful heritage façade of wrought iron and stone lies one of Victoria’s best-kept secrets. In the laidback coastal town of Port Fairy, three hours’ drive west of Melbourne, Drift House is a designer beach house with serious style cred. This adults-only retreat is home to four ultra-luxe suites, each with a distinct personality.
Sprawling over the entire ground floor of the original homestead, suite One boasts an open fireplace, contemporary kitchenette, sleek all-black bathroom, and a deep stone soaking tub in the corner of the bedroom.
On the floor above, suite Two works a chic aesthetic of dove grey and sage green, enhanced by large-scale abstract canvases. Soakers may want to look elsewhere, as there’s no tub here: the payoff is the expansive verandah, ideal for alfresco dining à deux.
Decked out with reclaimed timber and rugged stone, and sporting a private courtyard with outdoor fireplace, suite Three is a natural beauty. Light-filled suite Four is our pick for movie buffs, thanks to its projector screen. It also has a king-size bed and bathtub.
While the styles may change between suites, one thing remains a constant: intuitive service and a host of luxury extras that ensure you need not leave your room, including sumptuous breakfast hampers and a ‘Maxibar’ packed with pasta, sauces, wine, sweets and everything you’ll need for an indulgent in-room meal.
If you do slip out of your room, Port Fairy’s relaxed cafes, restaurants and walking trails are on your doorstep. Wander to Griffiths Island or take a dip in Port Fairy Bay, or jump in your car to explore the region’s pristine wildlife reserves.
Just don’t drift too far… that Maxibar awaits.
