Enjoy best of both worlds at beach paradise
Own a holiday home that pays for itself the rest of the year. By NATALIE HORDOV
A HOLIDAY home can be a great idea, but what do you do with it when you are not there?
The owners of this home run it as a successful short-term beach rental, with an established clientele providing a lucrative cash flow stream.
You can enjoy your own holidays down south in a gorgeous, two-storey home overlooking Cowaramup Bay and earn an income at other times, or simply run it as a full-time investment.
The design of the five-bedroom, two bathroom home was inspired by the south of France and has a touch of the Hamptons, with white tones complemented by natural timber.
The result is a light and bright, spacious home that suits its coastal location.
The first floor includes an open-plan living and kitchen area that takes in stunning views of the bay.
It opens to an alfresco area with stairs to the backyard.
Downstairs, there is a kids activity room with built-in bunk beds, two bedrooms, a bathroom and a second openplan kitchen and living area.
A covered entertaining area overlooks the landscaped backyard, which has its own beach volleyball court.
There is ample parking on the 1052sq m block. ■
