Down south holidays don't get much better than this: spectacular coastal views, a huge deck with an infinity pool, direct beach access — and a secret room.
Even in a region abundantly supplied with spectacular holiday rentals, the Injidup Bay House stands out.
The six-bedroom home — newly listed on WA luxury holiday house booking site Private Properties — is one of a handful of residences at Indijup Bay, and sits on 2.2ha of native bush.
There are sweeping ocean views from inside the house and from the expansive outdoor area, which incorporates a dining area and loungers plus a 20m infinity lap pool.
There's a private path to the beach, and direct access to the Cape to Cape walking trail, plus two hot outdoor showers for rinsing off the sand.
The home's style also sets it apart, with a distinctive "down south" feel from its curving roof line and rustic elements such as local stone and wooden pylons recycled from the refurbishment of the Busselton Jetty.
Then there are a few quirky touches, including a hidden poker room/wine cellar accessed through a secret door and a "captain's bridge" office and library space set above the main living area.
The house sleeps up to 12 people, with six bedrooms and five bathrooms, while a separate guest house accommodates two more people.
There are bunk rooms for children, along with an in-ground trampoline, a kids' cinema room and a games room with a pool table.
- Prices for the Injidup Bay House start from $4995 for three nights in low season.
