10 Stunning Albany Airbnbs to Inspire Your Next Trip Down South
If you are planning a road trip to Albany (Kinjarling, as the people of Menang Noongar call it) so book as soon as possible because we’ve found the best Airbnbs on offer in this beautiful coastal town.
Whether you want to be close to the city’s cafes and restaurants, near the beach, or tucked away on a rural farm, there’s an Airbnb in Albany for everyone.
This charming red cottage is a stone’s throw from downtown, decorated with beautiful vintage wares, a roaring fireplace, a free-standing tub, an outdoor shower, and luxurious linens for the ultimate night’s sleep. Tucked away on a historic street near the Port of Albany, this Airbnb is a 5-minute walk from the cafes and bars of York Street, including must-visit Liberty and Majuba Bistro restaurants, and is around the corner from the weekly Farmer’s Market in Albany. ‘Albany. Prepare a feast with fresh vegetables and dine under the stars in the lush back garden.
That white siding cottage is filled with beautiful vintage decor, combining the thoughtful touches of a rustic farmhouse cottage and a luxury beach house. Close to Albany’s town beach, Middleton Beach, it’s an easy walk to nearby shoreline, cafes and shops, and a short drive to town. After a day of exploring Albany, come back to snuggle up with a book in the light-filled living room or sit on the foredeck to open a bottle of local wine.
Perfect as a couples retreat, this cozy studio is housed inside a converted shed, which has been fitted out with a kitchen, a comfortable living area and a queen size bed, as well as everything you can think of for a comfortable stay. Absolutely flooded with sunlight (thanks to the floor-to-ceiling windows), the studio is connected to a private garden shaded by a large elm tree. Just steps from town, we can’t think of a cuter place to get away from it all.
End of the River Retreat
This mighty little shipping container on the Kalgan River is proof that good things do indeed come in small (and impossibly luxurious) packages. Completely self-contained and set on a working farm – you may spot grazing horses, sheep, alpacas and kangaroos – End of the River Retreat is perfect for couples or solo travelers looking to get off the grid and get back to nature for a bit. Don’t forget to bring BYO marshmallows for the fire pit on the deck (conditions permitting).
StableBASE is an architecturally designed, eco-friendly Airbnb set on six beautiful acres, which includes a vegetable garden that you are welcome to use, and friendly horses and chickens to say hello to. Inside the house you will find a traditional fireplace, high quality fittings and a spacious living room which opens onto the terrace through French doors. You can also have your well-behaved pooch join you.
Majuba Country Lodge
The Albany Restaurant Team Majuba Bistro also has two dream lodges in Kalgan, and if you’ve dined there, you know the decor is quite special and sophisticated. Savuti One and Serengeti Two sit on 17 luxurious acres and enjoy views of Oyster Harbour, where you can watch kangaroos graze and sunsets paint the sky in this true country setting.
The well named city shrine you’ll feel like your home away from home, with its modern fittings and vintage touches. We’re particularly impressed with the heavenly, Instagram-worthy freestanding bathtub surrounded by gorgeous plants. This Airbnb is close to the city center, perfect for coffee-hopping and shopping, and you won’t find it hard to relax each day in the courtyard gardens or in the open-plan living room.
Another Middleton Beach gem, this three bedroom character house has all the ingredients for a 10/10 stay. There’s a log fire to keep you warm on winter nights in Albany and a sunny veranda to kick start your summer mornings. The beach, cafes and a popular fish and chips are just around the corner, as well as a public park where the kids can go wild.
Host Georgie designed Black Valley alone, a dream she has been working on for many years. You can see and feel the love in every corner of the house, beautiful linens, touches of sage green (including gorgeous velvet sofas) and a manicured garden. The property is also next to a nature reserve and a footpath for leisurely hikes.
3 parade street
This awesome Airbnb has easy access to the town’s main street, not to mention breakfast supplies, a cheese board and wine offered at check-in. Sleeping six people in three bedrooms (in king-size beds, no less), it’s the perfect Airbnb to book if you’re planning a couple or group trip down south. There is also a fantastic lookout over the sparkling harbor and the iconic Brig Amity ship.
