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.
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 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.
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, 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.
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.
