Windy Harbour is a quaint seaside hamlet located inside the D'Entrecastreaux National Park. Being inside a national park gives Windy some unique features with there being no mains power or mobile phone reception giving your a true escape but if you require a phone there is a pay phone located at the park or if you wish you can drive up to the cliffs and get a mobile phone reception(Telstra) whilst enjoying the stunning views of the Southern Ocean. Windy Harbour is a collection of holiday house's without fences, no paved roads and a feeling of time gone by. There is a caretakers shop with limited supplies(bait/bread/milk) with Northcliffe being a 20 min away.
The Barefoot Beach House is a lovely 3 bedroom house with self sufficient solar so you can have most of the comforts of home including an electric fridge, washing machine, gas hot water, gas hot plate, gas oven, Jarrahdale slow combustion fire for the cool evenings. We ask that no electrical appliances with heating elements be brought with you as the system will not work with high wattage equipment (eg Hair dryers, Straighteners, Electric Heaters). You have a choice of either the front or rear verandah to unwind and relax on and in the evenings there is a fire pit in the back yard to gather around and chat. There is parking for 2 cars or 1 car with a boat. The main bedroom has a queen, the second has a double and the third bedroom having a set of bunk beds with the house comfortably sleeping six. All you need to bring is your linen/towels , food and of coarse your fishing rods if you wish to catch your dinner.
