Australian Traveller Magazine’s 100 Great Australian Holiday Homes
On the rental market for the first time, the astonishing Broome Lagoon is an oasis of privacy set on 11 acres of prime real estate around 9km north along the beach from the world famous Cable Beach Club Resort. Elevated above the dunes and separated from the Indian Ocean by Coconut Well Lagoon, an area thick with fascinating birdlife, the main house on the sprawling property is adjoined by two separate two-bedroom bungalows, all of which are beautifully furnished including plasmas, DVDs and linen to rival any luxurious resort.
A Balinese cabana sits perched alongside a pretty tropical pond, flanked by boab trees so iconic to the region, while a larger, climate-controlled pool is embraced by the corrugated iron main house. If you’re not afraid of the wet season, consider visiting Broom Lagoon during Mango Madness (October to December), when the property’s 200-strong plantation of mango trees lining the driveway will become your semi-permanent hangout. Keep those mango daiquiris coming!
