Here are the best Airbnbs in Western Australia to book now. 

Plympton Pool House

East Fremantle

For a laidback poolside staycation that’s not too far from home, look no further than Plympton Pool House in East Fremantle. This architecturally designed studio is brimming with natural light, rattan furniture, leafy greens and gold accents, and it’s a short walk to the iconic bars and trendy boutiques of George Street. 

Kalbarri River Shacks


Fill up the tank, stack your surfboards on the roof and set your compass north to Kalbarri River Shacks. You can take your pick between two of these beachy shacks situated right on the Murchison river—the Northside shack or the Southside shack, which can each sleep six guests—or if you’re travelling with a larger crew, go ahead and book out both! A beautiful front deck connects the two shacks, and it makes for the perfect spot to settle in for some people watching and sunset drinks after a big day spent catching waves and exploring.

The Sanctuary


Picture this: you’re sitting poolside with your mates watching the colours of the sky change to pink and purple as the sun sets over Exmouth. Sounds like the ideal setup for an Instagram story, doesn’t it? Well lucky for you, The Sanctuary is situated right on the marina and has its own private pool and jetty—so if you’re bringing your boat up on an epic roadie, it also has a place to stay. This spacious house has a laid back and relaxing vibe, making it the perfect home base for your Exmouth adventures. 

House Of Cards Chalet One


If you’re looking for accommodation that’s within close proximity to some of the best drops in the Margaret River wine region, look no further than the chalets on the property of House of Cards’ vineyard. Chalet One can sleep up to six guests, and boasts a fully-equipped kitchen and dining area, a cosy fireplace, a luxurious freestanding tub in the master bathroom and most of all, jaw-dropping nature views. 

Olive Cottage

Carbunup River

Escape the hustle and bustle of city life and book a stay at this cosy little cottage on a cattle farm in Carbunup River. Watch as the cows graze in the nearby pastures or grab your camera and go for a walk to the lake at sunset—whatever you do, just be sure to soak up the peaceful ambience of this beautiful rural stay.

Lefties @ The Bay


Lefties @ The Bay is a two storey architectural masterpiece that sits pretty on the hill overlooking Cowaramup Bay (which is just a short 400m stroll away), and we’re actually lost for words at just how gorgeous it is. This modern home away from home is filled with natural light, funky wood furnishings and plenty of amenities including two indoor fireplaces, a large balcony and a big bathtub. We also can’t help but notice that the beautiful rattan furniture and light fixtures throughout the house are reminiscent of those at Meelup Farmhouse, which is just a 35 minute drive away… talk about Instagrammable.

Doris Betty Beach House


This sweet 1960s beach house in Denmark is simply overflowing with character. Decorated with warm, neutral tones and a few fun splashes of yellow, this thoughtfully-designed coastal home is photogenic from every angle.

The Castle


This historic character home is well and truly deserving of a spot on your Insta grid. Once you’re done admiring the facade, step inside and check out the charming furniture, high ceilings, jarrah french windows and original fireplaces. When day turns to night, reward yourself with a relaxing bubble bath in the freestanding tub.

Doe Cabin


Nestled in the tops of towering Karri trees you’ll find Doe Cabin, a relaxing newly-renovated three-bedroom house in Denmark with plenty of ‘grammable trails and biking tracks right on its doorstep. Don’t let the dark wood exterior fool you, the inside of this cabin is jam-packed with bright bursts of colour, and every window looks out to a view that will be the envy of all of your Insta followers.

Bickley Valley Cottage

Bickley Valley

This renovated cottage built in 1914 and located in the beautiful Bickley Valley is the ultimate country getaway.  The place is extremely scenic (and you can enjoy the spectacular scenery from your private balcony) and is full of charm with a luxurious feel. Although it is located only 20min away from the Perth CBD, you’ll feel like you’re in the middle of the English countryside. And if that wasn't enough, it’s also close to loads of local wineries and restaurants that will make your stay extra special.

The Treehouse


This uniquely designed house is an architect's dream come true. A boab tree is the focal point between two separate dwellings, making the outdoor living area pretty spectacular. The house is linked by a shaded deck and outdoor kitchen. The treehouse also showcases antiques, collectables and unusual art pieces throughout the rooms. There are two luxurious bedrooms, with one revealing an outdoor bathroom so you can shower under the stars. Could it get any more romantic?

Jaspers Islay Cabin


Jaspers Islay Cabin has no shortage of wow-factor. This sleek, contemporary cabin is full of functionality, like a sliding door that reveals a modern kitchenette complete with Smeg and Nespresso appliances, and a back deck that looks out onto a big back garden.

Littlewood Chalet


This chalet in Osmington is oozing with rustic luxe charm. The interior is decorated with handcrafted furniture, cosy textiles and fresh flowers, but it’s what’s outside that makes this stay extra special. The private deck opens up to 30 acres of spacious woodlands, and it’s the perfect spot to pour yourself a glass of wine and take in the sound of silence.

The Carriage


Possibly one of the most unique stays in the entire state, The Carriage in Mundaring is a luxurious historic South Australian train carriage that has been lovingly restored into a one-bedroom, one-bathroom getaway. You’ll feel like you’ve been transported into a completely different era, all without travelling too far at all—this beauty is only a 45-minute drive from Perth. 

Albany Executive Apartments


Take one look at the exterior of this pastel lemon-coloured apartment in Albany and images of San Francisco’s famous Painted Ladies will come to mind. After you’ve finished snapping pics of this photogenic row of units, ascend the staircase and prepare to be wowed by panoramic waterfront views.
