Australian Traveller Magazine’s 100 Great Australian Holiday Homes
Just a stone’s throw from the centre of the Margaret River region, one of things we love about A La Plage at Gnarabup Beach is its obstinate insistence that under no circumstances will the property be let out to school leavers, no matter how much money they scrape together. It’s a very modern, refined, quiet home in a pretty coastal area that attracts peaceful family guests, not partygoers. Split across three levels, the five-bedroom A La Plage sits right atop a hill overlooking the ocean and nearby national park, and is outfitted with babies, toddlers and very young children in mind (stair barriers, cots, change-tables etc). So if you’re looking for a place in which you can combine a kid-focused getaway with a high level of luxury and comfort (and no, they’re not mutually exclusive), A La Plage is right on the money.
