The Wave House – Margaret River’s Coolest Beach Shack

The Wave House

If you like a house with character and don’t mind foregoing five-star luxury, then The Wave House is the coolest place to stay in the southwest. Perched high up on the hill overlooking Indijup Beach, the Wave House has panoramic views of one of the regions most stunning beach.Wave House 8

The house is set on fifty acres amidst the Cape Naturaliste National Park. From the Master Bedroom on the third floor, you can do a surf check without even raising your head.

Wave House Lounge Room

Every window boasts amazing views and there are plenty of cosy corners to chill out and relax.

You’ll find musical instruments throughout the house, including a piano in the basement. Music loves may be interested to know that  Tame Impala recorded one of their albums in this house.

Wave House Kitchen

The Wave House takes a crowd and there’s enough room for up to 20 people. There are four large bedrooms in the main house, along with enough cutlery and kitchen gadgets for a very large dinner party.

The house also has spring fed tea tree water, very rejuvenating and great for the complexion.

Wave House Second House

If you want to add to the crowd, there’s the Seachange Shack located next to the main house (pictured above). The Shack sleeps another four people and can also be rented separately. There’s also a Ecodome further down the driveway which sleeps another four people.

Wave House Ampitheatre

One of the biggest quirks about the house is the cave out the back. This is a natural amphitheatre and can be rented for functions. It’s the perfect venue for weddings, parties and another event you can think of.

If you’re thinking of staying here, remember that this place is rustic and not a luxury house full of five-star comforts. The bush setting means that there are plenty of creepy crawlies, cobwebs and the occasional mouse.

Bring your own bedding, including doona and sheets. A mattress protector is also not a bad idea although I’ve since found out that the brown circles on the mattresses are from the tea tree water.

  1. I am trying to find the booking details for “The Wave House” Margaret River’s coolest beach shack. It is no longer on Stayz. How do I contact Wave House ?

    1. Seriously don’t bother. Just stayed there. Awesome views but seriously shocking conditions. Boarder line that it should be shut down due to lack of hygiene

      1. I’m sorry you had a negative experience of the Wave House. It’s been several years since my stay at the house and as mentioned it’s far removed from five-star accommodation. If you have serious concerns about the state of the property and the hygiene can I advise that you get in touch with the owner via the booking service that you used.

    1. Hi Laura, it really is an incredible and unique house. There’s so much soul and creativity inside those walls that it more than makes up for what’s missing in creature comforts. I hope that you get to spend a few days there.

  2. Cannot believe this type of accommodation is readily advertised online. Can seriously think of many homeless people who would love this and at least take pride in keeping it clean. Further more, we were charged an additional fee for clean linen, which clearly had been slept in by previous guests (not sure how many previous guests in total). Disgusting and should be ashamed. If it had a negative star rating, would say a minus 10. Had 15 other guests that can back me up. SERIOUSLY SHOCKING

    1. If you were disappointed with the standard of The Wave House please get in touch with the booking service that you made your reservation with and voice your concerns. The opinions on this website are my own and I have no links to the owner of this property. Many thanks, Nina.
