Whether it’s for some much-needed R&R or to let loose with your besties, getting your whole crew together for a cheeky vacay is seriously good fun. 

And when it’s time to decide where to go, we’ve got your backs. We’ve pulled together a list of all the best big Airbnbs in the best spots around WA, so you can start planning your squad’s highly anticipated road trip. 

Here are our picks of the top Airbnbs for large groups in WA.

Maybrook

DUNSBOROUGH

Maybrook, located literally on Dunsborough’s doorstep, is the place your crew needs for the weekend. Spread over a spacious one-story plot, this place sleeps eight people and is perfect for those after a chilled-out few days away. With its very own fire pit, plus a massive kitchen looking out to the deck and lawn, space certainly won’t be an issue here. Whip out the ping-pong table if your pals are on the competitive side. 

Stargazer Lookout

MARGARET RIVER

Surrounded by bushland, Stargazer Lookout sits right near the beach, but is still only a short drive to all the cafes and eateries in Margaret River. Boasting an epic private deck complete with a BBQ, stone fireplace and overhead lights, you might find it a little hard to actually leave. There’s also four bedrooms sleeping up to eight people plus spacious open plan living indoors and a stunning tub with a view.

Dingup House Bed And Breakfast

MANJIMUP

Sleeping up to 16 people, this huge, historic estate sits on a whopping 45 acres of farmland and is the perfect base for anyone heading down for truffle season. You can amble in the rolling hills or play a game of darts by the fire in the barn. Given its size, rooms can be booked individually which allows a little more privacy for those who want it—prices are around $50 a night per person, which is seriously good value if you ask us.

Cowrie Cottage

ESPERANCE

If you and your pals have been looking for a cottage core getaway, but haven’t been able to find anything big enough to host you all, look no further than Cowrie Cottage. An adorable little coastal cottage right around the corner from Esperance’s main strip, this spot is walking distance from some of the most amazing south coast beaches. It sleeps eight, and at $140 per night each you’d be getting a darn bargain here.

Casa Marina

MANDURAH

Having marine life in your backyard? It’s a yes from us. That’s what you’ll find at Casa Marina: sitting smack bang on the Mandurah Canals, this pretty, grand home has its own little jetty onto the canal so you can catch crabs for dinner. Or, just watch dolphins playing in the water—another one of the major perks of this house. The home is beautiful enough to just hang out there the whole time, or you can grab the provided kayaks and go for a paddle.

Treetop Escape

YALLINGUP

As the name indicates, this place is an incredibly cosy (yet somehow spacious) getaway among the trees. Sleeping up to 9 people, there’s a gorgeous freestanding bath for you to soak away your troubles, and a BBQ on the balcony situation going on too—perfect for summer. Tucked away not far from Injidup Beach, you’ll be in heaven here.

Asrama

BROOME

No international travel? No worries. Asrama Broome is basically the Aussie version of a gorgeous Bali villa, complete with the stunning decor and a resort style swimming pool. Offering space for up to eight guests, take the whole squad or the whole fam up to WA’s great north and enjoy Broome the luxe way. It’s set right near the waters of Roebuck Bay, plus Cable Beach and Chinatown are just a short drive away. P.S, there’s an indoor/outdoor bathroom too—just like a Seminyak villa.Asrama in Broome

Getaway On The Beach

BUSSELTON

If your crew likes the sun, sand n’ surf, this Getaway on the Beach is the spot for you. Housing up to ten people, sit on the balc and watch the sunset with a chilled vino. It’s a 2-storey house so you’ll have plenty of space, and yes, you can bring your furry friends along for the trip too. It’s the perfect beachside hangout, so you and the squad can fire up the BBQ and chat the evenings away as you listen to waves crashing against the sand.

Yaringa

DUNSBOROUGH

This luxury holiday home is perched very close to the beach, and is a stone’s throw from central Dunsborough. With sweeping views from the balcony of bushland and beach, Yaringa sleeps up to 8 people and is a beautifully tranquil retreat while still being central. Enjoy the crisp, white interiors and ocean breeze during your relaxing getaway.

Castleview House

ALBANY

Smack bang in the middle of Albany is Castleview House—a sleek, modern, and pretty darn luxurious getaway for big groups. It’s perfectly situated for exploring Albany’s best if you want to get out and about. Of course, you can just curl up inside by the wood-burning fireplace in the living room. It sleeps ten, plus you can bring your furry friends along for the holiday too.
