About the property

This stunning reproduction pioneer holiday home and property offers a wide range of family and pet friendly activities. The spectacular Southern Ocean coastline, West Cape Howe National Park, The Nullaki Peninsula, Torbay and both Denmark and Albany are less that 20 - 30 minutes away. Nearby are some of Western Australia's most awarded wineries, restaurants and produce farms as well as the tall Karri (Valley Of The Giants) forest regions of Nornalup National Park and the popular Tree Top Walk near Walpole.

Wolfes Landing has been recently renovated and features a large well equipped kitchen and generous family areas. It sleeps up to eight in large comfortable bedrooms on two levels. We can stretch to an extra two if needed with another two fold out beds. The upstairs master bedroom has an en-suite toilet and vanity. A large wood fired heater keeps this spacious house toasty warm in the cooler months. The children will find the old fashioned tree swing at the back of the house a delight. All bed, bathroom and kitchen linen including blankets and doonas are supplied as standard.

An exciting range of holiday activities are available directly on the property. Bush walking, fishing, kayaking, birdwatching or just relaxing while soaking up the ambiance of this special place. The house commands sweeping views of the Nenamup Inlet which laps the shoreline just twenty metres from the front door of the house. The abundant forest and aquatic bird life is truly spectacular and bird lovers will be in paradise. A quiet paddle in a kayak or canoe will introduce you to many species of water birds that inhabit the area including black swans, ducks, pelicans, spoonbills, egrets and ibises. The famous Bibbulmun Track is accessible year round and passes just a couple of kilometres down the road.

We are pleased to offer hire kayaks and canoes for exclusive use on your own private inlet forming part of Wolfes Landing property. Two single seat and one two seat kayaks plus a two seat Canadian canoe are provided. All vessels are state of the art, sturdy and safe and one is designed for fishing from as well. Safety equipment is supplied as standard. Please inquire about the other kayaking options and locations available (the Wilson Inlet, Hay River and Hartmans Beach).

The local fishing is superb and will suit all ages with a choice of ocean, beach, inlet and river venues to test your skill. Check out the photos in the image gallery. Big King George whiting, Black and Silver Bream and Pink Snapper can be caught from the bank of the Wilson Inlet. Boat and rock fishing is another dimension with big Sampson Fish, and Tuna year round and Salmon in season from Easter. We are only minutes from the ocean with a handy boat launching ramp just a few minutes drive down the road on the Wilson Inlet. If you book be sure to bring your fishing gear. If you prefer we can hire you a range of fishing tackle to suit the youngest beginner to the serious fisho at a very reasonable rate as well as all the local advice you need to get among the big ones. Basic beginner kits are available for only $10.00 per two day hire.

A large flat screen TV and a Blue Ray DVD/CD system is supplied. Just bring your own USBs, CDs, DVDs or portable disc drive based movies and music.

Babies or toddlers up to two years old are admitted for a flat nightly fee of AU$20 if they sleep in a cot. We provide two quality cots (one drop side and one porta-cot). Both cots have mattresses and liners but you will need to bring your own cot linen. Please advise us if your little on sleeps in a cot using the guest comments section of your inquiry form.

We are pet friendly and pet owners and pets will revel in the ample grounds (nearly 30 acres) of open spaces and virgin native forest in which to explore and run. Please note that we only permit dogs that are adequately socialised to safely interact with with other dogs and people. Therefore prospective guests should note that this is an important consideration if you intend bringing your dog. These issues can be clarified prior to making a booking by contacting us direct where we are happy to advise you. We also have a secure and comfortable pet enclosure where you dog can be accommodated for up to a day if you need to visit a national park or restaurant during your stay.

A pet fee of $25/pet is required to be paid upon arrival. This is to offset the additional cleaning required after pet friendly stays.

Relaxing Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Was completely child and pet friendly. The children explored the bush and were occupied for hours outdoors. The dogs enjoyed exploring as well and found plenty to do. The house is absolutely beautiful with amazing views and enough space for everyone. I particularly loved the kitchen and the benches where the kids could sit together at meal times. Our host John and his poodle were very friendly and welcoming. We were give some awesome tips on places we could go with the kids and dogs, Anvil beach was perfect!

Amazing location and beautiful rustic house

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just spent a wonderful ten days at Wolfes Landing. The location is incredible - the sounds of swans, magpies, wrens, kookaburras and frogs dominate. John is a great host - incredibly helpful and knowledgeable. The house is well designed with different living areas and a great kitchen. The views from the balcony are beautiful. Perfect place for my teenage boys and 80 year old mother, and me! We look forward to returning soon.

Great property

  • 4 of 5

What a little gem in the middle of the bush. Short distance between Albany and Denmark and the view from the house is lovely. John was a great host and nothing was too much trouble.

A fantastic and peaceful location!

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I spent a weekend here while visiting the Albany and Denmark region. Beautifully located right on the water surrounded by nature. The dogs loved exploring and playing with lovely Bohdi, the resident poodle :) John and Valerie are just a stones throw away if you need anything which is very helpful. We look forward to coming back down longer next time!

Lovely house

  • 3 of 5

Loved that the beautiful, dog-friendly Anvil Beach a short drive away. And loved the house: the master bed was comfy with great views over the bay, an impressive fireplace, kitchen is well-equipped and bathroom is nice and big with a lovely view out to the trees. The owner John is a very knowledgeable and accommodating host. Their house is less than 100m away so wasn’t quite the secluded retreat we were after, and would have preferred some of the communication be just via sms to avoid unexpected visits. Besides that, a lovely stay.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay Tanya. Yes I agree about the preferred use of SMS. Unfortunately a lot of our guests use a mobile phone provider that does not offer sufficient coverage in our area and often messages are missed. Thank you for your well intentioned advice though. Cheers John & Valerie

Inlet & Forest Close To Nature

Wolfes Landing is located on the Nenamup Inlet on The Nullaki Peninsula. It is located conveniently between The City of Albany and the picturesque township of Denmark. It is suited for family holidays (including pets) or just a romantic getaway where the only sound you will hear will be the many bird calls and the sigh of the wind in the trees. The shore, boat, inlet and river fishing is spectacular and if you don't fish the beaches are really something. Restaurants, wineries, galleries and craft shops are all close by.
