Xavier Cottage was opened by the Catholic Church in 1986 to provide accommodation for children with intellectual disabilities. From February 1986 it also provided weekend and holiday respite care for children with intellectual disabilities. In June 1987 the cottage moved from Albert Park and took over the building which was previously St Monica's Cottage at Woodville. Xavier Cottage closed in 1988.
