Our Exmouth House – Cobia

That fantastic verandah

Another of our home owners stories. This time Avril and Daan from Cobia – 20 Carpenter St, Exmouth.

In November 1999 as we were about to leave Exmouth we decided to have a look at what was available for sale.

We already owned a couple of villas in the Exmouth Villas Resort but felt very restricted living there. There were so many rules in the complex and dealing with a body corporate in a complex with 42 villas was very difficult.

So we found this house and could see that it had enormous potential as it just needed some TLC and a bit of imagination. Both of which we could conjure up between us.

That was in 1999 and since then we have turned this house into a low maintenance easy care perfect holiday home. We come here ourselves for  5 or 6 months every year….to escape the southern winters.

The polished jarrah floorboards give  a lovely warm feel and from when you walk in the front door the house sort of wraps itself around you and says ‘Welcome…have a good time.’

The heart of the thouse is the verandah where it all happens…

If you want an afternoon snooze with a good book or when entertaining friends the verandah is perfect for a party as it has seating for 10 and a fridge to keep the drinks cold…what more could you wish for? Just outside the verandah is the barbecue and fish cleaning area with sink and hot and cold water.

When we are in residence we just about live on the verandah as it overlooks the tropical garden making it very private and has a lovely inside/outside atmosphere which just says relax…have fun.


Our Exmouth House – Tusk

Originally we didn’t warm to the American Block Homes, but Tusk was different. The renovations were all done, including this huge back verandah, sliding doors from the lounge to the outside, and even this amazing extra room. We couldn’t believe how lucky we were. Now we are busy (as usual) renovating and getting the garden up to scratch.

We have given it a really retro modern finish, with funky 70′s replica furniture in leather, and modern lines with the linen and decore etc. Matt Gogoll has provided all the great underwater photography artwork on the walls. Me being an ex-chef you will notice there is ‘more than enough’ of all the commercial cookware etc that you could possibly need. Just can help myself!

We are just loving the new revamp that we did this September, including the two new airconditioners! We nearly died last January when the temperature hit 49deg and we had New Year’s Eve hangovers!! We have added a marri wine rack, new reticulation and obviously new furniture. Plus more stuff for the kitchen.

One day this home will be our home…not soon enough I am afraid…oh well.

Our Exmouth House – Turtle

The first of our home reviews, from the owners themselves.

“We purchased this home about 5 years ago now. I just fell in love with the simplicity of Exmouth and the ‘nothingness’. My husband just wanted somewhere warm to retire to sometime in the future. I had book reading and beaches on my mind, he had fishing.

It’s been a labour of love making our mark on this holiday home. I’m a little quirky and love ‘arty farty’ things, my hubby is a little more spartan! So we have struck a balance of his  simple style, versus my clutter and chaos theory of decorating. With lots of colour and bits and pieces around this home I really hope you love it as much as we do.

Hubby is in charge of the garden, all that lovely greenery around the pond is all his handy work. It often gets out of control, the ‘dry garden’ is also out of control at times but there is always plenty of bird activity and even wildflowers at times. Lots of native plants and the most massive fragrant Frangipani tree!!

We call it ‘Turtle’ as we hope you will also enjoy the slower pace that a holiday in Our Exmouth House will provide you.”
