2014 STAYZ Award Winner - Best Outdoor Lovers Property WA

Ballakup is the perfect tranquil bush getaway, and yet only minutes from Millbrook winery and the many historical and natural attractions of the Jarrahdale-Serpentine area. Why drive 4 hours or more to the south-west of Western Australia when you can be amongst the beautiful Jarrah forests of Jarrahdale in around 45 minutes from Perth.

Ballakup is not your average holiday house. Why not treat yourself to something special? The modern but earthy house boasts a unique blend of architectural features such as skillion and barrel vaulted ceilings, quality finishes and a stunning solid jarrah deck contoured around native grass trees.

Set in just under an acre of forest, bush and grass trees this custom designed home backs onto state forest with the Munda Biddi mountain bike and walking trail literally right behind the property. Kangaroos, emus, cockatoos and other native wildlife abound.

Jarrahdale has a long and interesting history with logging in the area dating back to the mid-1800s. Local attractions include the Millbrook award-winning winery/restaurant, an operating saw mill, museums, Koala and wildlife parks, Serpentine dam and National Park, endless walking and mountain bike trails, parks and picnic areas.

Ballakup is perfect for a quick weekend getaway, a relaxed holiday with friends, family holidays, tourists visiting Perth or for that romantic trip away. Mountain bikers, hikers and nature lovers will also love it.


Ballakup has 4 large bedrooms, with a full ensuite bathroom for the main bedroom. There are 3 queen size beds, 3 single beds one a trundle bed and a double sofa bed. The main bathroom features a spa bath and sumptuous travertine marble tiling. The main living area has polished jarrah flooring, a deluxe kitchen, a 10-place dining suite, a cosy wood-burning stove and a stunning view over the deck and bush beyond.

Quality furniture and appliances, a wood-fired heater and air conditioning ensure comfortable living year round. Freshly cleaned bed linen and towels are provided.
