The Margaret River Region is every Western Australian’s favourite destination. I know, it’s a big statement, but I can back it up with wine, a stunning coastline, enchanting forests, world-class cuisine and luxurious accommodation.
Private Properties is known for its unforgettable properties in amazing locations ranging from sleek and contemporary designs to pre-loved bungalows, many boasting coastal, vineyard and bush views. They have recently released five new properties for those yearning to escape to Dunsborough, Yallingup and Margaret River.
Situated on the tranquil banks of Geographe Bay, Dunsborough offers white sandy beaches, gentle walking/cycling trails and a bustling café culture. The bay is a popular for water sports including diving, snorkelling, kayaking and swimming. On the north-western point is the top end of the Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park, which is known for the stunning Cape Naturaliste, the Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse and the Cape to Cape Track.
Forest Beach House
Just as the name suggests, you’ll be shrouded in the bushlands of Meelup Regional Park and the sparkling Geographe Bay. Architecturally designed in industrial chic, the polished concrete floors, charred timber and plush leather couches make for a stylish coastal stay for eight. It’s only a stone’s throw to the rockpools and coves of Dunsborough’s coastline.
Surrounded by the Leeuwin-Naturaliste Park, Yallingup is famed for its spectacular views over Yallingup Beach and the Indian Ocean. A world-class drawcard for surfing, snorkelling, swimming and caving, as well as galleries, food and wine, it’s easy to understand why it was named after the Aboriginal word for ‘place of love.’
With sweeping views of Yallingup’s coastline, Apricus encapsulates the region’s coastal charm. Light and bright and bathed in modern white furnishings and timber details, family and friends won’t be able to resist gravitating towards the open-plan living area and balcony. Sunset views are guaranteed to a backdrop of bush and turquoise hues. Sleeping eight, it’s a short walk to Yallingup Beach, the new Lagoon Yallingup café and historic Caves House Hotel for pub grub and live music.
Barefeet Retreat, Yallingup
You might be cocooned in luxe decor at the Barefeet Retreat, but the casual coastal vibe invites plenty of barefoot luxury. Almost every room across its three levels promises ocean vistas and the sheltered BBQ deck on the top floor will keep all eight guests (plus your furry friends) satiated as the sun slips into the Indian Ocean. It’s a leisurely stroll down to the family-friendly Yallingup Lagoon and bustling Caves House Hotel.
The Hamptons comes to Yallingup at the Sundowner where you can luxuriate in Western Australia’s famous sunsets slipping into the Indian Ocean from your balcony – or your bed. Sleeping six people across three bedrooms, there’s plenty of space to relax within its crisp and coastal décor. From here you can walk to the Caves House Hotel or to the new Lagoon Yallingup restaurant.
Margaret River Region
The Margaret River Region is approximately a three-hour drive south of Perth and synonymous with towering forests, rugged granite outcrops and jaw-dropping coastline. It’s also famous for its wine and food and the entire region is dotted with wineries, restaurants, cafes, breweries, cideries, distilleries and world-class produce. You could say there’s something for everyone. The township of Margaret River is currently undergoing a make-over but most venues are still open, including the Margaret River Farmers Markets on Saturday mornings.
Bushland Retreat, Margaret River
Overlooking bushland on the outskirts of the Margaret River town, you’re well-placed to enjoy the region’s many eateries, wineries, breweries and attractions. Nestled among towering eucalyptus trees and the river, there are bush trails winding through the forest, along the river and even into the Margaret River Brewhouse. Sleeping eight, this wooden chalet is the perfect spot to cosy up in front of the fireplace.
