If you like a house with character and don’t mind foregoing five-star luxury, then the Wave House near Yalingup is the coolest holiday house in the southwest.
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.
Every window boasts amazing views of Indijup Beach 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 lovers may be interested to know that Tame Impala recorded one of their albums in this house.
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.
If you want to add to the crowd, the Wave house studios located next to the main house (pictured above) can be rented too. The Wave house studios sleep another four people and can be rented separately.
One of the biggest quirks about the holiday home is the cave out the back. This is a natural amphitheatre and is a popular wedding venue or can be used for other functions.
If you’re thinking of staying here, a word of warning. 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.
In return, this Yallingup holiday home is full of originality and creativity- you won’t come across another home quite like this.
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.
