Beachfront beauty for the whole family, including your pooch

Playful, nostalgic, refined. A home unlike any other, blending the best of 20th century design originals with lux comfort and considered quality appointments, all set in a superb location.

Hidden directly on the beach almost midway between Busselton and Dunsborough in tiny Marybrook this home is instantly nostalgic, yet playfully current, and ready to help create wonderful new holiday moments. You can even bring the family dog to Summer of 81.

Choose between a morning swim in the beach or pool and coffee on the deck overlooking the ocean, the opportunities to be active or relax are endless as the day opens up before you. With a due north facing aspect across the calming waters of Geographe Bay.

Morning coffees, brunches after a morning at the beach, spectators pavilion for games on the lawn and late afternoon drinks as the sun goes down. The open plan kitchen, dining and living space opens onto the alfresco area, so even if you are inside, you’ll still be part of the action.

The home is perfectly appointed for memorable dinners, (three dining areas), the latest Miele appliances, Vintec wine fridge, Nespresso coffee machine and superb quality kitchenware, cookware, knives and glassware.

The master bedroom is located upstairs, a private suite that affords excellent privacy - with king bed, ensuite/spa and living area with adjoining kitchen. The first queen room, downstairs, has an ensuite and a lovely outlook over the front garden. There are two additional queen bedrooms and a children’s bunk room that sleeps 3.

You'll be comfortable at Summer of 81 whatever the season; reverse-cycle air conditioning in the upstairs living area and two fireplaces in the living rooms downstairs for the cooler months.

Ideal for multiple generations to enjoy together; the kids can play on the lawns or ride along the coastal track while the adults can take a deep breath and read, take in a movie (or do nothing) with lots of places to find some solitude (with a well-stocked library) or entertain – with three separate living areas - everyone can find a place!

Summer of 81 is well located to visit the lively coastal towns of Dunsborough and Busselton, foreshore playground and award-winning jetty, the longest wooden jetty in the Southern Hemisphere; compete in world-class events like the Busselton Ironman (December) or Busselton Swim (February); or explore the greater Margaret River region.

Dunsborough, Western Australia

At the northern end of the Margaret River Wine Region, Dunsborough is a thriving tourist town well known for its pretty coves, long stretch of sandy beach, scenic regional parks and proximity to some of the world’s best surfing beaches, caves and food producers. We have a great range of luxurious holiday homes in Dunsborough to suit every need.
What a location! We loved the house, the furniture, the views, and the short walk to the beach. We'll be back next summer.
