Opened in December 2013, Drift House is one of the latest additions to the Australian boutique accommodation landscape. Located right in the heart of the beautiful coastal town of Port Fairy in south-west Victoria, it sets a new standard of design for luxury holiday accommodation, one that relates to the history of site and the place, but from a contemporary perspective. Drift House appeals to those looking for a luxury escape that is a little more individual and interesting.

To some people Drift House is a boutique Hotel and to others a retreat. The label is not important. Put simply it is a special place to stay. It does not represent over-the-top opulence nor doily wrapped Victoriana. It is unique, individual and entirely bespoke. Striking external architecture combines with sumptuous and sensual interiors to create a supremely relaxing environment.

Drift House consists of four very private and entirely self-contained suites. The use of innovative materials, salvaged timber and beautifully designed fixtures results in a modern, cutting edge and luxurious atmosphere. All suites have been appointed to a very high standard. They have beautiful and spacious modern bathrooms with walk-in rain showers, deep baths, quality towels and products from Grown Alchemist. Well equipped kitchen facilities, a relaxing lounge area and the very special Drift House Maxi-bar. Bedrooms have amazing King Size beds with high quality linen, down doonas and a choice of pillows. Wi-Fi is available free of charge throughout Drift House.

A yummy breakfast hamper is supplied free of charge. This focuses on local ingredients and is compiled daily. A typical hamper will include Farmhouse Muesli, poached fruit, Grampians Pure Yoghurt, Irrewarre Organic Sourdough bread, a selection of preserves, eggs, avocado and house made baked beans. Espresso coffee machines and high quality teas are also provided free of charge.
