Skyhouse Retreat is inspirational holiday accommodation situated amongst ancient karri trees, high on Weedon Hill, Denmark, WA.
With decks adjoining every room, the sounds, smells and sights of the surrounding forest are always only a few steps away. When you live in the Skyhouse only floor to ceiling walls of glass separate you from nature's ever changing panorama.
Birdlife abounds on Weedon Hill. From the tiny speckled Pardelotes that dig burrows in the ground to live in, to the majestic Sea Ospreys whose enormous nests are over a metre across. This you can all see.
At night the forests abounds with all manner of little furry critters and whooping owls. The local possums may well climb up the poles of the house and visit at your kitchen door (fruit only please!)
The building's unusual pole frame construction of hardwood poles and beams - it's sturdy 'inner skeleton' allows it to have external walls that seem to almost not be there. The curved roofs float above the walls appearing to be hardly attached at all. This results in a habitat that is light, whimsical, unexpected and truly organic.
The interior of the Skyhouse is craftsman built with many unexpected delights. Light and colour to stimulate and caress are a feature in every room of the Skyhouse.

The vicinity of your humble abode also offers much scope for some "adventures." The Skyhouse overlooks one of Denmark's best kept secrets. 'The Magic Circle' is a cluster of giant granite boulders topping the crown of Weedon Hill. Sitting on these you are right up in the forest canopy. With the birds!
A wonderful place to relax, read a book or just sit and be with nature. Just two minutes from your front door.
With no near neighbours, you might be deep in the wilderness. You can guarantee the only sounds you will hear will be birdsongs, the wind in the trees, and if it's still... the waves crashing on Ocean Beach, just 1 kilometre away across the inlet. And yet, you are just three kilometres from the town centres - Shops, Galleries, Cafe's etc.
If you feel like walking, two hundred metres away at the base of Weedon Hill is the Bibbulmun Track.
Walk to the East it will take you along the Wilson Inlet through bushland towards the Denmark River and Town. To the West, it will lead you along the Inlet for several kilometres then up Mount Hallowell for some fantastic vistas and to Lights Beach.
For a more relaxing outing, just stroll down to the bottom of the hill to Honeymoon Cove; canoeing, boating or just sitting under the paperbark trees watching the waterbirds.
Further afield, a short seven kilometre drive will take you to Ocean Beach for great swimming, surfing and fishing.

We thoroughly enjoyed our few nights in the skyhouse. A great place to spend your evenings in the forest, enjoyed the luxurious bath and evenings in front of the log burner. Spotlessly clean and fully equipped!
Something a little different
Met and greeted by owner who lives next door. House was comfortable 1 double bed on top floor and 1 double bed outside and downstairs where the bathroom is. Probably suited more for 2 couples but not really for families.
A relaxin haven
Time seems to slow down here, bush birds and silence Funky house. Total relaxation
Amazing, Beautiful, Nature stay
I could of not been happier with this property.. its one of a kind! so in the heart of nature from the birds that came each day to the possum who let you feed her by hand at night. The house is so different and unusual, like an actual tree-house! So cozy and the perfect way to spend my 30th B'day... will be back for sure. Thanks again
So peaceful& Quite magnificent easy walk to the BIbbulmun Track
An amazing property with a unique ambience
Absolutely loved this house. So many things to look at you find your self staring off in all sorts of directions and spotting something new every time. Can whole heartedly recommend. Had some lovely nature visitors too including a little bird, two frogs and a gorgeous possum. My only point would be that the second bedroom is on the ground floor with external access, as is the bathroom. For us it meant the kids ended up with the master bedroom and the parents downstairs but really this wasn't a problem, it was just a bit of a surprise on arrival. If you had just one child then realistically they could sleep on the top floor lounge area next to the master bedroom and be happy as larry. Would love to return to this special treehouse one day.
