Luxury Holiday Homes for the Ultimate Summer Getaway

Most West Australians have fond memories of childhood holidays spent down south. From carefree mornings spent playing on the beach to cosy winter evenings playing board games by the fire, the region still holds a special place in many of our hearts.

Renting out a holiday home down south is the perfect way to recreate these memories with some added luxury and perhaps with a few more visits to the wineries than before. If you’re planning on getting down the region this summer then these are some of our favourite places to stay.

Bunkers Beach House

This beachfront home resides on the front row of the spectacular Bunker Bay. Designed by architect Gil Nichol, the home is made up of two levels of floor to ceiling glass doors and windows, five ensuite bedrooms and balconies with ocean views. The home has a fully equipped kitchen and an airy open plan feel that’s perfect for entertaining that extends onto the alfresco. Whether you spend your days here lounging with a book on the outdoor day beds or making the most of your direct beach access, there’s no doubt that this is somewhere that you will be returning.
