Stay cool this summer at a Private Properties’ house with a pool.

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 eight fantastic swimming pools and eight 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.

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.

Nestled high on the hill in Yallingup, 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.


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!


You might feel like you’re actually in Bali as you sit and sip a cocktail by this glorious pool at Kokomo.

Set in rural Dunsborough, this sprawling property has a delightful pool area that the whole family can rest and relax in — surrounded by beautiful natural bushland.

The pool area also comes complete with a barbecue, so really that’s everything you need to do a WA summer in style.


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 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.

Set in eight hectares of natural native bush, what could be better than cooling off in this super-stylish pool? It’s perfect for your morning laps, too.


You’ll definitely keep your cool in summer by this pool.

Nestled between Dunsborough and Eagle Bay, Ravenswood has the ideal pool for relaxed catch-ups with friends and family.

While some of you can get in the swim, the rest of the gang can chat, laugh and swap stories while enjoying the comfy lounges of the adjoining outdoor area.


An extensive pool area guarantees year-round relaxation at Cathay.

With a 20-metre lap pool and a gas-heated outdoor spa, this house is perfect for guests looking to get some laps in while on holiday.

With Cathay’s raised sundecks, built-in bar, barbecue, locker rooms and showers, you’ll be rewarded for your hard work in the relaxing lounge area after your work-out.
