We came to this amazing property for a long weekend getaway (2 couples, 3 kids ages two to eight) and our only regret was that we didn’t book for twice as long.
The home is actually two fully self-contained homes. One is fully renovated into a very beautiful two bedroom, one bathroom with wrap-around floor to ceiling windows that allow you to sit and drink in the amazing ocean and dune vista. The other is a lovely 3 bedroom two bath house (including a great kids retreat at one end) with a big central open plan area and a long verandah - classic beach house vibe. And then there’s the big lawn area! There’s just so much room to spread out and really enjoy a holiday here.
According to the guest info booklet the hosts regularly use this as their family getaway and it really feels lived in and loved. There are plenty of little features that we all enjoyed, from the kids boat and dock play area out front, to the collection board and outdoor games, to the beautiful outdoor shower… he list goes on. We can’t wait to come back in winter to make use of the wood heaters too! Oh, and the beds are super comfortable.
And then there’s the beach. What a beach! Geographe Bay is the perfect family beach – calm, long, relatively deserted, great fishing! The kids wanted to play at the beach at least 3 times every day – swimming, beach combing, a walk up to the river mouth, kayaking (there are two kayaks and kids lifejackets at the house).
I’m going on and on here, but this is the kind of holiday destination that deserves it. The photos on this listing do not lie, in fact if anything the place is even more comfortable and beautiful that the photos suggest. Do yourselves a favour and bring the family or a few friends down there – just make sure you don’t book when we want to go back!
Great location with sea view. Spacious well equipped unit. Surprisingly large yard. Would definatley recommend.
Only negatives slippery rug in the lounge room needs a waste bin in bathroom and another mirror somewhere would be useful .
