About the property

******A Great Escape******

Nestled among peppermint trees you will find this 2 storey hideaway in the quiet location of old Melros with fantastic sea views just 90 kms south of Perth on the outskirts of Mandurah, just past the Dawseville Cut. Melros boasts excellent fishing, crabbing, boating, swimming and surfing and native wildlife abounds.

The beach house is a perfect way to relax and wind down while watching the sunsets from the large 2nd storey verandah. Child friendly with secure yard, sand pit and gate at top of the stairs to keep kids safe. Ideal for 4 adults and 4 children.

In the early mornings and late afternoons, kangaroos from nearby bushland graze on the lawns of houses and nearby park. Take care when driving!

Close access to three of the best golf courses in WA - The Cut, Meadow Springs, and Secret Harbour.

There are at least 4 bikes in the shed for kids and adults to use

Great family friendly property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed her for a little family getaway. It was an excellent location, just a 2min stroll to the beach and park. Great sized house with everything you could need, including views of the ocean. My 3 year old particularly loved the sandpit and kids toys. It was a bit chilly at night during our stay which is a shame because the upstairs deck area would be amazing to sit out on summer evenings.

Amazing Property!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place! My wife and I along with our 2 young boys spent a weekend away in this amazing place! This is the perfect place to escape and unwind, the home itself has a chilled out vibe with its beachy theme. There is a sprawling balcony with plenty of space for the boys to play while enjoying ocean views and gorgeous sunsets. There is plenty to do inside and outside this home. Everything we needed was provided. We particularly liked the beach and parks being so close to this location, our boys loved the adventures and seeing a few kangaroos along the way. We were lucky to have beautiful weather during our stay, we will definitely be back during summer! Thanks again!

Everything was perfect for a winter get away from the welcome note and complementary bottle of WA wine to the lovely yet relaxed and beachy decor and beautiful bedding to the wonderful location a very short walk to the Indian Ocean and coastal walking and bike paths and the Cut and fishing We enjoyed the use of the bikes and fishing gear and our only complaint was the surf rod was broken

Thank you very much Annette for a great holiday.

Amazing hidden gem

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing place to stay on mother's day weekend! This house had everything you could ever want. You could do a short stay - which we did but you could easily stay a week or two. The house was clean and neat. Bed and all bedding were provided and were wonderful and soft. We were a bit nervous about having a stair case with our 2 year old but having the addition of the gate at the top took this worry right away. The children's bedroom/toy room was by far our little mans favorite spot. He spent every waking moment playing with the doll house and all the toys it came with. He loved playing outside in the cubby house and the sandpit and having the property closed completely with at gate made it that much safe for him to play.

We LOVE that things such as hand soap and toilet paper is provided as this hasn't been the case in MANY other places we have stayed. We have found this hidden gem and plan to stay as often as we can.

Would love to see a fire pit or similar outside to roast marshmallows and keep warm in the cooler months.

This is by far the best beach house we have ever stayed in and the owners made us feel extremely welcome from the moment we booked it.

We look forward to many more stays
