Secluded beach bliss
Enjoy seclusion, space and simple elegance by the sea! Yondah Beach House is a unique blend of luxe-in-nature comfort and absolute privacy (you’ll have the whole 300 acre oceanfront estate to yourself!) in a truly stunning coastal setting.
Recently extended and fully refurbished, Yondah sleeps up to 8 guests in three spacious bedrooms, each with its own sparkling designer bathroom. All the other creature comforts are there too including SmartTV and free NBN satellite internet. But that’s not all. Yondah is also genuinely pet-friendly. Get ready to fall in love!!
Magic all year round
In summertime, the living is easy at Yondah. Enjoy picnics and lazy afternoons on your own golden beach, or grab a snorkel and play with curious baby fish in one of the nursery rockpools. Sip drinks at sunset and enjoy a spectacular light show from the sheltered deck-for-two, then fall asleep gently, lulled by the song of the surf and calling seabirds.
In autumn enjoy long golden days, the crisp fragrant sea air and the last of the summer flowers. If you’re feeling energetic you can ‘Walk the Yorke’. In winter, snuggle up in front of a roaring open fire while thunderstorms lash the landscape. Or rug up and enjoy a clifftop stroll… you might spot fur seals rolling in the surf or a whale breaching in the bay.
Wildflowers, wildlife and stars
Spring is the best time for wildflowers. Native orchids and other coastal plants burst into flower along the windswept cliffs and, after good winter rains, the native grasslands become a blanket of vivid green moss dotted with tiny donkey orchids and the delicate white flowers of the carnivorous sundew. Look for kangaroos at first light and at dusk, and keep an eye out for the rare white-bellied sea eagle and osprey as they soar on coastal thermals. In the scrub you’ll find noisy flocks of babblers, wrens, silvereyes and tiny pardalotes.
At night a carpet of stars spreads all the way from one horizon to the other. Watch for comets and meteorites, and experience starlight so bright you’ll cast a shadow! Without city lights nearby, you’ll even see the stunning Magellanic Clouds, two of our closest neighbouring galaxies, and the dusty spirals of our own Milky Way.
