Overview

About the property

Nestled in an acre of shady Karri Forrest grove on the Wilson Inlet foreshore at scenic Denmark, Western Australia, enjoy a memorable holiday experience at The Coombe, embodying a sense of tranquillity, space, peace and light.

The Coombe is a two bedroom modern rammed earth and glass luxury holiday home, inspired by the Usonian hexagonal designs of Frank Lloyd Wright, in particular the Berger House. With all rooms enjoying sweeping unsurpassed views over Wilson Inlet and the Nullaki Peninsula through floor to ceiling glazing, a friendly relaxed atmosphere is generated by open plan living and wrap around verandas.

West lies the Valley of the Giants and Tree Top Walk, north is Mt. Barker with its produce and wineries, wildflowers and the Porongorups, east is the Great Southern centre of historic Albany. Eco-tourism includes seasonal wildflowers, whale watching, mushroom hunting and bird watching. Whatever your interests, The Coombe is sure to please; perhaps relaxing with a book warming before the JKent Stove, savouring one of Denmark's fine wines at sunset, or just absorbing the fresh clean air and natural serenity from the veranda where you will see many species of bush and water birds in their natural environment.

Situated on the shore of Wilson Inlet close to the bar and Ocean Beach

This lovely home is cosy, comfortable and convenient abundantly equipped down to a hairdryer with quality furnishings, crockery, suites of glassware, cutlery and linen. Both en suite bedrooms have a q.s. bed, electric blanket, down doona in winter, quality blankets in summer, bedside lights and a clock radio. They are on opposte sides of the house and very private, The gourmet kitchen has besides the usual oven and cooktop a microwave, wok, electric frypan, rice cooker, food processor and dishwasher plus the glorious view as a meal is prepared. There is a Weber Q barbecue on the verandah. We leave a selection of herbs, spices and dryfood in the pantry for your convenience as well a birdseed for the birdfeeder which attracts a variety of parrots and honeyeaters. The smart and comfortable outdoor furniture on the covered verandah is a delightful place to sip a glass of wine and relax after a day of sightseeing and enjoy the bush and water birds that are in abundance. We leave a large pile of wood under cover to feed the Kent slow combustion heater which warms the house and with the glass front the flickering fire is a delight to watch. There is an excellent library of books, dvds and videos to curl up on the lounges by the fire and read or watch and just let the world go by.

We supply the superior Mt. Romance bathroom amenities to both bathrooms, a complimentary jar of homemade Grapefruit marmalade and Spicy Tomato Sambal, and for a stay of 3 nights or more an excellent bottle of Harewood estate wine. We regard the winemaker James Kellie as the best in the Great Southern district.

The house is well situated to take in all the interesting day trips.

The famous surfing Ocean Beach is only minutes away, and just 13 ks along the road to walpole are the wonderful beaches of Mad Fish Bay, Elephant Rocks and Greens Pool all together in the William Bay National Park. These are quiet, safe swimming beaches with white sand and chrystal clear water with the huge outcrops of smoothe rock that stretch from the beach out into the ocean that are fun to walk - or run - over.

Further along is Bartholomew's Meadery, The chocolate Factory, and The Toffee Factory that also make cider and "A Bit on the Side" ;preserves and chutneys. The Tree Top Walk is at Walpole and you can begin your day early with a cruise on the Walpole Inlet, an experience the Muir family have made memorable

If you like bushwalking the Bibbulmun Track is at the end of the street with several tracks up to the Monkey Rock lookout, or along the Inlet with lovely water views.

Along the scenic, historic Scotsdale Road are many renowned wineries and cafes. Scotsdale Road has a gentle incline through the karri trees, it began life as a track for the bulloch teams that pulled the karris to their destination for the first tree fellers. Later is became a railroad, but now is a beautiful bituman drive. Along the way is a cheesemaker and the Alpaca Farm where you can hand feed the Alpacas and all the other little animals there.

On the road to Albany, just before the scenic drive turnoff, is "WoodWorks", a display of wood craftsmanship hard to beat. If you take the scenic drive past Cosy Corner and Torbay it is easy to access The Gap, Natural Bridge and the Wind Farm. Back into Albany you come to the Amity, the reconstruction of the ship that brought the first soldiers and settlers to Albany. Then around the stunning coastline to Mr. Clarence, the Forts, Middleton Beach and Oyster Harbour.

When back at "The Coombe" it is so lovely and relaxing you will never want to leave.

The Best Anywhere

  • 5 of 5

We spent 16 days/nights at this fabulous home straggling Feb/Mar. It was truly one of the most enjoyable stays we've ever had anywhere, and we travel the world. We so appreciated not being given a list of 'dos and donts', simply no smoking. One sensed the welcome and hospitality of the owners, Ian and Lauris. Although we live far away in Alaska, we plan on returning next year for, hopefully, a longer time. Cannot recommend this place enough.

Owner's Response: Dear Margaret, Thank you for taking the time and trouble to post such a wonderful review on the Stayz site. I do appreciate it very much. It was delightful to have guests from the other side of the world, and if you return from all that way away there will be a hamper as well as wine waiting for you on arrival. Perhaps next time we will be able to arrange to meet face to face. Every best wish, Lauris

Wonderful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

It was our second holiday at "The Coombe" and it was everything we remembered from the first stay. Peaceful and calming, shady, fresh air and breezes from the inlet. A wonderful water and tree view, birds feeding and chirping. Comfortable beds and a well equipped kitchen that includes essentials such as herbs, spices and condiments. We hope to experience "The Coombe" again soon.
