Sound View Retreat is a lovely secluded beachside location where you can relax with family and friends.

The views from the open living area extend over Lake Vancouver to the townsite of Albany, across Princess Royal Harbour continuing around to King George Sound and the Southern Ocean. Emu Point at the entrance to Oyster Harbour channels the view towards the Stirling Ranges which can be seen on a clear day.

The Sound is a popular retreat for the great Humpback whales and Southern Rights as they make their annual migration along the coast. At the right time of the year you don't even have to leave the comfort of the lounge to see them relaxing and playing in the Sound.

Whether it's a summer holiday enjoying the pristine beaches and nature trails in the area or a cosy winter break watching the waves crash onto Breaksea Island as you sit by the wood fire, Sound View Retreat is the place to be.

Rooms & Facilities

The newly renovated modern kitchen has a breakfast bar with lots of bench space, gas cooktop and electric oven. The kitchen is fully equipped with stainless steel cookware, modern crockery and all necessary utensils together with microwave, dishwasher, pod coffee machine, cafe press and blender.

The adjoining dining area has a large table which can very easily accommodate 8 adults with 5 chairs and a long bench seat.

The open plan living area has a wood burning fire, is equipped with a 42" plasma TV, free on-line movies, bluetooth sound bar for your music and a leather lounge suite.

The front verandah is adjacent to the open plan living area and is a great place to relax with a glass of wine on a summer evening. Here you'll find the BBQ facilities which include a flat top BBQ and a Weber Q.

Bedroom 1 has an ensuite and a queen sized bed. Sliding glass doors give access to a small patio with garden views and ocean glimpses.

Bedroom 2 is currently set up with a second TV and DVD and has a quality pull-out double sofa bed. This room also has access to the front verandah and great sea views.

Bedroom 3 also has a queen size bed, sea views and access to the front verandah.

Bedroom 4 has two single beds and is located toward the rear of the house

Bedrooms 2, 3 and 4 share a common bathroom (with a bath) and a separate toilet.

The hallway nook has a good supply of kids toys, books and games.

The laundry is equipped with a front loading washing machine, clothes dryer and ironing facilities.

An under cover fold-out clothes line and extra fridge/freezer are situated in the downstairs garage.

An outdoor hot water shower is available at the rear of the property - a great way to rinse off the sand after a visit to the beach.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable house with a great view We, a group of six seniors from Singapore, enjoyed very much our short stay at Sound View Retreat recently. The house is very clean and beautifully furnished, and has all the modern facilities one may possibly need, as well as a well equipped modern kitchen. We enjoyed very much the great view from the house and the short walk to the beach. While secluded it's only a short drive to many attractions around the area. Richard has provided very detailed guide to the house as well as useful user-guide for facilities within the house, and has also been very helpful to make our stay most comfortable. We are happy to have chosen Sound View Retreat and hope to return again one day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Views!!! Fabulous views out over the water. Wished we had time to sit and enjoy more but so much to see and do around Albany and surrounds. Comfortable home to return to with the fireplace going at nights. Great directions from Richard and response to any queries. Definitely hope to return one day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This place is something special We brought the in-laws to stay at Sound View Retreat (their first trip to Albany in 20+years) and as well as being in awe of the changes to the town over that time, they were more than impressed by this home and its location. WHAT A VIEW!! The photos only just start to tickle your imagination. It's not until you're sitting on the lounge or standing on the front balcony, that you are truly captivated what you see. It's a full 180 view from town across the harbour, the sound and all it's islands, all the way out to sea. Truth be known, we were all gobsmacked. We found it such a calming way to start the day. We even chose to have a lay-day and spent the whole day staring out at the horizon over many cups of tea. You can tell the owners really care about the home and have their visitors in mind. It's beautifully finished and has a lot of character. Its got everything (wi-fi, Netflix, coffee machine, wood fire, kids toys and games) and it really feels like they've just ducked out and left you the keys to their house - very welcoming and homely .... which, I will warn you, makes it VERY hard to leave!! We can't wait to come back so we've booked again! We have friends coming from Melbourne and as they loved our photos so much, they've asked us to bring them to stay here! We feel like we've just uncovered the gem of the South West - a well kept secret. Thank you for sharing your patch of paradise with us. We are thoroughly excited for our next visit.
