The first month of Summer is here and we can’t wait to enjoy a holiday in the sun. While some might have already booked their favourite summer destinations, others are lucky enough to have their own slice of paradise beachside. Today we’ll have a look at Our Top Ten Favourite Beach Houses in Australia!
From the outside, Torquay Beach House by Luke Fry Architecture & Interior Design doesn’t look like any other beach house we’ve seen. This structure looks like a modern fortress by the sea! It screams toughness and boldness in all its edges and corners which features raw concrete, exposed brick, with Japanese charred timber battens. It subtly references to Palm Springs mid-century modernism and contemporary pavilion structures, challenging the idea of a coastal home. Who else is digging the vibes?
The Aireys House in Aireys Inlet is simply in a class of its own. Talk about next level beach house goals! This particular home, whilst a beach house is slowing becoming a primary residence and we can clearly see why. With that incredible glass window apex that points straight out to the Airey’s Inlet lighthouse, that view from the living room, dining and kitchen that takes your eye across all of Airey’s Inlet right down towards Lorne, we didn’t want to leave when we were here either! See for yourself and have a quick tour of this incredible pad in our Let Us In home tour…
Next on our list is the Beach House by Architecture Saville Isaacs. This home took the meaning of “bringing the outdoors into your home” to a whole other level! Outdoor and indoor pavilions were established and are utilized as public and communal spaces, all of which are specifically designed to maintain the connection to the beach and provides different aspects of beachside living. The interiors of this home also reflect that of a true beach home – light and relaxed with a subtle coastal touch. Definitely a one of a kind beach paradise!
Low key houses with high levels of details are such a sight to behold, just like the Golden Beach House in Queensland’s Sunshine Coast. Simple, clean and laid back are some stand out traits of houses that win us over and this coastal home definitely wins the part for having those. A project of Nick Tyson Architecture and Dan Young Landscape Architect, this home is bound to be a house of sunshine on its own.
Situated only a stone’s throw away from the iconic Shelly Beach, Portsea Beach Shack by Pleysier Perkins Architects is a redesigned 1960s beach shack that was given new life. This home is a relaxed and light multipurpose hangout. It blurs the lines between the inside and the outdoors and has the perfect spot for entertaining guests with relaxing, uncrowded space all around the background. Did someone say pizza oven?
Peacefully nestled in the quiet coastal town of Blairgowrie, this beach house designed by Meraki Creative is built with entertaining, scenic views, and longevity in mind.

The Avoca Weekender by Architecture Saville Isaacs is a relaxed, robust home with a strong relationship to outdoors and evocative views.

Last but definitely not the least, peacefully nestled one block away from the beach in Balnarring, a quiet, coastal village on the Mornington Peninsula is a family house surrounded by coastal landscape and holiday nature. The Fauconshawe Project by The Little Brick Studio got its design inspiration from the natural beachside colours and tones and fused them into an incredible beachside abode.
