Luxury waterfront house on a 'mediterranean' island

About Jan and Peter
We've travelled the world over many years, experiencing different cultures and seeing amazing sights. We've stayed in the full spectrum of abodes, from bus station waiting rooms and backpacker hostels to five-star resorts. In each location, we've always found meeting the locals and gaining their insights on life always enhances travel experiences. A snapshot of our travels can be found on my Instagram account: travelaroundguide Peter and Jan
Jan and Peter purchased this House in 2013
Why Jan and Peter chose Wannanup
We believe we have found our Nirvana in our own backyard, so to speak. Our Nirvana - our Joie de Vivre - is on Bouvard Island, located just 10 minutes south of Mandurah and 1 hour from Perth. It is the friendly people and the unspoilt natural beauty that makes the area so special. We hope you have the opportunity to experience all Joie De Vivre has to offer - it will rejuvenate you spirit and soul!
What makes this House unique
Recapture your Joie de Vivre and rejuvenate your spirit and soul! Soak up the atmosphere of the unique Mediterranean architecture on an island, right here on Perth's doorstep! Enjoy a champagne while sitting in your en-suite's corner spa overlooking water. Relax under the rear grape-vined pergola looking down Castaway Canal to the Village Beach. Snuggle up with a nice red in front of the fireplace, with beautiful views all around you. It's nice to see boats sail by only a few metres away from your living room. Dolphins and pelicans also frequently glide by the backyard. Walk out your back door, hop onto your boat tied up to your jetty, and explore the amazing local waterways. Walk to the island's central park and pick some fresh herbs to use to cook up a tasty meal in your gourmet kitchen. Spoil yourself with a luxury getaway.

Return visit relaxation!!
Our return visit to this amazing property didnt dissappoint. Once again very happy with the location, enjoyed fishing off the jetty and just a short walk to the beach. Even tried the paddleboard this time! Cant wait to return!!
Best Holiday Home by far! Out of this world!
Our family has had the most relaxing Easter break staying at “Joie de Vivre”!!
This exquisite and luxurious home makes you feel like you are truly in the lap of luxury! Especially with the gas fireplace, spa bath and coffee machine!
Kids fished and crabbed for hours off the private jetty, and kayaked around the canals! Beds were comfy and kitchen had everything you could possibly need! Didnt have foxtel or netflix however that was a good thing as we didnt watch footie all weekend!! We enjoyed sitting outside on the balcony for our morning coffee and enjoying the everchanging views of the meditteranean canal living lifestyle! One powerball and we will would be living here!!! Haha!!! Cannot rave enough about this beautiful location and home we will be back!!!!!
So pleased that you and your family had a great stay, Tammy. Thanks for your lovely review!

2nd time Staying in this beautiful house
Joie De Vivre is 1 of our favourite luxury house stays. This house is above and beyond other stays as they have a lot of little extras included not just the basics. When we stay here we feel we are in another Country, such a homely feel, luxury furnishings, super clean, comfy beds and pillows, good wifi everything you need for a holiday. I recommend this home to anyone who wants to stay in a luxury home on the water it truly is amazing. The owners are alway there to help if needed never any trouble to make your stay enjoyable.

Perfect for summer holidays
We have just enjoyed our second 3 week summer holiday at this amazing property and can honestly say it was the most relaxing holiday ever! It ticked all the boxes for us and Jan and Peter are terrific hosts.....a lovely welcome basket of pasta and bubbles, canoes for our use, jetty for the boat and the whole house is bright, airy and beautifully appointed with everything you could possibly need. We will be back but now the secret is out .....!!
Thanks so much Pauline and Colin.
