Australian Traveller Magazine’s 100 Great Australian Holiday Homes
Just 45min directly north of Perth along the sparkling coast, Yanchep is a sleepy combination of seaside activities, intricate walking trails through wetlands and national parklands, and some of WA’s more fascinating cave systems. The Balinese-inspired Yanchep Sea Shack is a two-bedroom home built on thick stilts high on a hill and surrounded by balconies to take full advantage of the streaming sunlight and commanding views of the Indian Ocean.
The nearby Yanchep Lagoon will provide hours of snorkelling distraction for the kids, as will the endless reef walks at low tide. And the split-level house is purposely designed to keep the kids sequestered on the lower floor, so Mum and Dad can have some time to themselves in the upstairs “parents’ retreat”. What a great idea.
