In the swim: 10 top pools in the Margaret River region

Enjoying summer down south in WA is surely one of life’s simple pleasures. The sunshine is plentiful, the skies are blue and the only thing you need to do on holiday is decide between the beach or a swimming pool.

If you do decide on the pool, here are ten fantastic swimming pools and ten fabulous homes for you to consider in the Margaret River region. Each is the perfect place to work on your tan, have fun with the kids or enjoy a poolside cocktail.


Eagle Bay is all kinds of amazing — and so is this pool.

Jahangir, Eagle Bay

With enough room to sleep 10 people, this opulent house, Jahangir, has a stunning pool that almost leaps out over the bay. It’s easy to imagine yourself here with a group of friends, enjoying cocktails around the pool before dinner is served.

At one of the most luxuriously appointed houses you’ll find in the South-West, this uniquely shaped pool will have you wanting to holiday here every summer from now on.



With a serious Palm Beach feel to it, this pool at Sublime was just made to be enjoyed by a group of friends in the height of summer.

Sublime, Yallingup

Nestled in the Gunyulgup Valley, this stylish pool could host all manner of fun times during the holidays — or be the perfect spot to get your morning laps in before breakfast. But with a plethora of sun loungers around the pool’s edge, if you don’t feel like swimming you can simply take some time out and read a book or soak up the sun instead.


Salty Kiss

Perched on Yallingup hill with sweeping views across the Indian Ocean, Salty Kiss provides a wonderful vista and a pool! Morning dips and late afternoons swims, it’s hard to choose the ocean or the pool when staying at Salty Kiss.

Splash about to the sights and sounds of nature in this modern-chic retreat. Secluded in rural Yallingup, this fabulous pool overlooks the beautifully landscaped gardens and surrounding bushland so you can swim and sunbake in complete tranquility. There is also a fabulous hot tub for the cooler months at Songbird with similar views!

Another Eagle Bay beauty, Picquet is high on the glamour factor.

Just imagine yourself enjoying a gorgeous sunset (or sunrise, if you’re an early riser), swimming with your loved ones as you look out over the Bay and drinking in those pretty pink skies.

This home sleeps 10 and every part of it makes the most of those idyllic ocean views, including the pool. Getting in the swim has never looked quite so attractive!


Villa Gris

You’ll be in the lap of luxury at this modern masterpiece set within 5 acres of native bushland near Dunsborough. Villa Gris‘ 12.5m pool is located in the back garden but you can see all the way through the open plan living area, through the bush and catch glimpses of Geographe Bay in the distance.

Serene Shores

No need to travel to the Maldives, dive into a fabulous South West holiday at Serene Shores. This luxury holiday home boasts stunning, elevated views across the beautiful aqua blue waters and unique coastline of Eagle Bay. The shimmering pool and alfresco deck are the place to be, but nearly every room has a water view.

This holiday home is all class and sophistication by the beach in Eagle Bay. But when you’ve had enough of the sand, you’ll love lazying around by Bilyarra’s gorgeous pool in the front garden. Read a good book or stare out across the bay.

A picture postcard rural retreat in Yallingup, Marribrae will leave you with some serious pool envy.

A gorgeous expanse of blue that hugs one side of the home, the pool comes complete with sun lounges, a Hamptons’ vibe and plenty of room to move.

This pool is just perfect for families who want to make the most of the gorgeous WA sunshine. With Marribrae’s sprawling lawns for a game of cricket or kick of the footy and six spacious bedrooms, the whole family will love this summer vacation destination.

Wilderness Rise

Get ready for luxury. This is one seriously good-looking pool. And if that isn’t enough for you, there’s also a Jacuzzi at the end of it!

Wilderness Rise, Margaret River

Wilderness Rise is the perfect spot for friends to book over summer. This Margaret River home has some enviable style; one week here and you’ll want to move in forever.
