Nestled into a hillside overlooking Middleton Beach, this quaint little cottage is shabby chic at its finest – think crisp white walls, sparkling chandeliers, wingback chairs and patchwork quilts.

But contrasting these old-world touches are some serious creature comforts, like the huge plasma TV and iPod docking station. There are two queen-sized bedrooms to choose from – one of which has a twin sleep out attached, and a cute children’s bedroom making it a perfect summer stay for young families.

A 10-minute walk down the hill will land you at Middleton Beach, popular for surfing, fishing, snorkelling, even kite surfing. There you’ll also find many little cafes for coffee or a seaside snack, such as Beachside Café and Bay Merchants. While you’re in the area, check out the nearby Sunday fish markets at the Albany Boatshed, where you can pick up all kinds of local summer seafood, and a warm fish burger for brunch.

From $287 per night (low season, three-night minimum), $1890 per week (high season). Sleeps seven.
