Sheerwater is one of only 219 houses nestled within the D'Entrcasteau National Park Settlement. Overlooking the Southern Ocean. Sheerwater is also the only cottage available as holiday accomodation with ocean views at Windy.

Sheerwater was originally a small holiday shack built in the 1950s. Since then it has been partially renovated and extended over the years to become a cosy 4 bedroom family holiday cottage with stunning ocean views. It is powered by a petrol generator and has a gas fridge/freezer, gas hot water and gas heater. Unfortunately due to the lack of power at Windy Harbour there is no washing machine, however a laundromat is available in Northcliffe. It is a requirement of the Windy Harbour Management Committee that all generators be turned off by midnight.

It is fully self-contained with all crockery, cutlery, coffee plunger, pots and pans etc and a couple of wind-up torches for when you need to turn the generator off. It also has a small TV and DVD player, a selection of DVDs, loads of books, magazines and board games. The roadside balcony houses a gas barbecue and outdoor seating. For safety of small children the balcony has a lockable gate. Mosquitos are around in the evenings, being close to the ocean, some mosquito coils are available. The peppermint trees do attract bees in the spring and early summer season.

We also have an excellent telescope that can not only view the rings around Saturn (if you know where to find it!), but it is also great for land viewing. Sandy Island is only five and a half kilometres off the coast, directly in front of Sheerwater. A perfect way of seeing the island up close without getting wet or cold.

See the fishermen and women's faces up close to see if they had a good days fishing as they come back in. If they're smiling a quick walk down to the boat ramp might score you a cheap fish for dinner. You won't get a fresher fish, that's for sure! Even in the winter it's great being warm and snug in this cosy cottage watching the waves rise and fall.

Things To DO

Windy Harbour is a sleepy coastal holiday settlement that becomes a busy little fishing port at Easter time and during school holidays, and it is a short distance from the Pemberton wine region and the beautiful karri forests for which the South West is famous.

Stroll along the beach, past nature's spa up to Cathedral Rock, continue up the cliffs to view The Window, a great place to watch the sunset over the ocean. A little further around is the lighthouse and another seat to just sit, rest and take in the beautiful view. Even in summer though you may need a jumper as the place isn't called Windy Harbour for nothing!

There are many walk trails, scenic spots and 4WD trails in the area and of course the fishing so many come for. The surfers also enjoy the waves at Salmon Beach.

Extra Information

NextG mobile phone reception is only available on the cliffs, not within the settlement. However there is a public phone box opposite the caretaker's building and for emergency purposes only the caretaker's number can be given out.

The new Northcliffe Visitors Centre is full of great ideas on things to do and places to go within the area.
