Our Favourite Beachfront Holiday Houses
Holiday houses right on the beach are a rare and special breed - nothing can match being so close to the sea that you can listen to the waves as you fall asleep and walk out to feel the sand between your toes first thing in the morning. Can you imagine anything more uplifting and restorative than that? We can’t either, which is why One Off Places boasts a gorgeous and diverse collection of beachfront holiday houses…
But where to start? When you picture your house by the sea, do you envisage white sands, turquoise blue waters and lush palm trees or are you more drawn to rugged shores which are as wild as they are breathtakingly beautiful? If you’re visualising something at the tropical end of the scale then how about this stunning beach house in Bali? The accommodation is bright and luxurious, the staff cannot do enough for you, and (most importantly) the location on the shoreline is simply unbeatable.
If you still want that hot exotic feel but you’re looking for something a little more rustic and authentic then these eclectic houses in Goa are exactly what you need. The properties sit directly on the sand on a semi-private spit of land overlooking the ocean, the location is so secluded that you’ll only have turtles and fishermen for company, and the facilities on site mean that you never have to leave. It’s likely you will never want to!
Back in the UK there are also some fantastic holiday houses right on the beach. On the Irish coast you will find this charming whitewashed thatched cottage which offers stylish interiors, peaceful surroundings and an abundance of unspoilt scenery.
And down on the Isle of Wight is a wonderful New England style house which has six bedrooms, a private beach and exceptional panoramic views across the Solent. Could there possibly be a more enchanting and exciting location for a family holiday or a weekend away with friends?
On Spanish shores you will discover this boutique stone house in Galicia, a characterful yet elegantly renovated beach cottage with an open fireplace, a roll top bath, a plunge pool and direct access to the sand dunes.
So as you can see, our beach houses come in all shapes, sizes, styles and settings but the one thing they all have in common is their proximity to the big blue. And whatever your age, circumstances and state of mind that will never lose its appeal. Holiday houses on the beach are places you will never forget.
