The SpaceFrom the minute you turn off the main road a sense of tranquility takes over, summer or winter. The rolling hills, the distant lighthouse, the blue of the ocean – whatever it is, there is something very special about Moore River and the town site of Guilderton. The estuary, where the Moore River meets the ocean is the place for coffee, picnics, swimming, fishing and boating.
A few twists and turns away from the Estuary, is The Classic Beach House - the perfect holiday accommodation with its polished timber floors and large front verandah overlooking the valley to the ocean, and from where the setting sun can be enjoyed.
This air-conditioned home is well maintained, clean and private. With 3 bedrooms it can accommodate up to 8 guests. Two bedrooms have king size beds, while the third has two sets of bunk beds.
Quality linen and bath towels are included. Both master bedrooms will be made up for your arrival, while the bunk beds will be left unmade to allow you to choose who's having which bunk. All beds have thick and comfortable doonas’, plump pillows and crisp white sheets.
The house has one bathroom with a bath and shower, a separate WC, laundry with a washing machine and a well-equipped kitchen, including coffee maker, microwave, blender, sandwich maker and all the usual utensils. There is also an outdoors hot and cold shower for use after the beach, which will save both cleaning time and the environment.
There are two living areas, one on the main level which has a Flat screen Television, Foxtel, DVD player and two big comfy sofas to relax on, while the adjacent dining room which seats 8 - 10 has a CD player and radio. A games room on the lower level, which also houses the second, double bedroom, has a comfy sofa, pool table, 2nd flat screen television, DVD player, air hockey, darts and plenty of books and board games to make this feel like a home away from home.
A large carport at the back of the home makes for easy unpacking on arrival and a great place to store your fishing tackle or to clean your catch of the day before cooking it on the gas BBQ or wok burner. A gate over the driveway secures the back yard allowing pets to run freely.
A fenced play area for children at the front of the home, can be viewed from the large tiled verandah where a 2nd dining table seats 8 - 10 guests.
Fishing lines and golf clubs are kept downstairs to make your stay more enjoyable.
The Classic Beach House is recommended for families, couples and friends who want to relax or enjoy a more active getaway with golf, fishing, swimming, kayaking or taking on the Desert Dune - a massive dune where children both big and small, use body boards to surf down the dune and out into the river below. Its a must-do Moore River activity. Guest AccessYou will have access to the whole home and be able to make use of the boat parking in the lower section of the front garden. The house has it's own private driveway with parking for up to four cars. Interaction with GuestsYou will be able to self check-in from 2pm on your day of arrival.
We strongly suggest you do the bulk of your grocery shopping before you leave Perth. The NeighborhoodMoore River and the townsite of Guilderton is located an hours drive north of Perth. Guilderton has two small shops, a cafe, Country Club (Great counter meals available on the weekends), Golf Course and Tennis Courts.
The stretch of countryside encompassing Lancelin, Moore River, Gingin and the Chittering Valley is an appealing place to explore with national parks, The Pinnacles, beautiful beaches, wineries, fresh local produce and unique local arts and crafts.
The Moore River in Guilderton provides safe paddle boarding, kayaking fishing and swimming and then over the sandbar is the surf and fishing beach. It's the perfect distance from Perth to enjoy complete serenity.
Guilderton recently won Keep Australia Beautiful, Australian Clean Beaches Award for 2015. The townsite is known for its timber stairway leading from the outlook gazebo at the top car park down to the ocean beach, with a mid-way look-out platform and seat. This stairway is not only to provide safe access to the beach, but it puts an end to the destruction of the dune caused by people walking all over the dunes to get to the beach. Getting AroundYou will need a car to drive to the property but once settled in the beach is about 400m away and walking distance. Moore River is a very small, sleepy town and safe for children.
