Windy Harbour is a quaint seaside hamlet located inside the D'Entrecastreaux National Park. Being inside a national park gives Windy some unique features with there being no mains power or limited mobile phone reception(Telstra only). Windy Harbour is a collection of holiday house's without fences, no paved roads and a feeling of time gone by. There is a caretakers shop with limited supplies(bait/bread/milk) with Northcliffe being a 20 min away.
The Barefoot Beach House is a lovely 3 bedroom house with self sufficient solar so you can have most of the comforts of home including an electric fridge, washing machine, gas hot water, gas hot plate, gas oven, Jarrahdale slow combustion fire for the cool evenings. We ask that no electrical appliances with heating elements be brought with you as the system will not work with high wattage equipment (eg Hair dryers, Straighteners, Electric Heaters). You have a choice of either the front or rear veranda to unwind and relax on and in the evenings there is a fire pit in the back yard to gather around and chat. There is parking for 2 cars or 1 car with a boat. The main bedroom has a queen, the second has a double and the third bedroom having a set of bunk beds with the house comfortably sleeping six. All you need to bring is your linen/towels , food and of coarse your fishing rods if you wish to catch your dinner.

Great winter escape
Had a wonderful time in Windy at Barefoot beachouse. It was clean, cosy and comfortable for us. We loved the warm fire on the cold days, and really enjoyed the games. A beautiful and unique part of the south west. Ian and Lucia were very accommodating.
Fun summer break
3 Mums & 4 kids really enjoyed staying at the cottage for a well deserved break! It contained everything we needed plus more. We especially loved the spacious yard and front verandah and plenty of room for us to relax while the kids enjoyed doing what they wanted. Looking forward to our next mini-break!
Clean, Quiet, Relaxed
Fantastic place to stay for a much needed break. Ian and Lucia were wonderful to deal with, sending a lot of information including a map and directions about a week in advance of our stay - very helpful. We arrived to find a well presented house, very clean and tidy, with everything we could need. Well appointed kitchen with coffee, tea and sugar supplied - along with plenty of utensils and such, spacious bathroom with soaps, beautiful secure veranda areas - loved the rocking chairs - VERY COMFORTABLE BED. We loved it so much we are already planning our next stay. Would highly recommend to family and friends. Thank you both for a wonderful place to relax.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay as we found the place very relaxing and quiet which is what we needed.
Great getaway cosy house
We had a great time at Barefoot Beach House. Kids had a ball exploring Windy. The wood fire kept the house nice and toasty and having the wood cut is a nice touch. It had every thing we needed. Can't wait to go back
adequate and comfortable
Great reprieve from the hustle and bustle of city life in a place that time forgot. It is what it is - a barefoot beach house in Windy Harbour. The hosts were extremely amenable in dealing with our 'let' which made the experience easy and relaxed.
