This is one luxe take on the classic beach house: Le Soleil sits among native bushland, boasting four bedrooms, brand new furnishings and a neutral but sleek décor.

And the best place to soak up unparalleled views of Island Beach: the large deck, where you can cook a lazy barbeque dinner while watching wallabies and kangaroos in their native surrounds.

Alternatively, wander down the 150-metre path to the pristine beach below, famed for having King George whiting.

But if you feel like trying out some of the island’s other great swimming holes, be sure to visit Penington Bay (a short drive west). It’s a summer hotspot among locals, popular for fishing off rocks and swimming in its natural rock pool.

And with plenty of foodie delights within a scenic drive (Clifford’s Honey Farm, Island Pure Dairy Farm, Dudley Wines…) this is a summer stay for the senses.

From $180 per night (low season), $500 per night (high season). Sleeps eight.
