About us

Welcome! We are so glad you are here and can't wait to tell you a little bit more about us and how The Lookout came to be.

We are a father/daughter team, who love our little hidden treasure of a town - Albany. My father Bert started his own building company over 40 years ago, and with a passion and talent for carpentry and design, he has finally had the chance to build his "Dream Home".

A born and bred Albany gal, my work has been focused on people and customer service. From working in insurance to managing a day spa, I love helping people and creating beautiful experiences.

Bert and I have poured our hearts and souls into this project and know that you will be able to immerse, indulge, and enjoy yourselves in the curated space we have created.

The Property

Perched atop Mt Clarence overlooking endless sky and ocean, a newly built, spacious, modern contemporary getaway awaits. From thoughtful design to bespoke ​furniture and finishings, experience the Great Southern in pure luxury.

With construction completed in 2023, The Lookout has an abundance of natural light welcomed in by large windows, showcasing stunning views of Middleton ​Beach, Lake Seppings, Mt Clarence and beyond. With open plan living featuring sliding doors that open into the generously sized alfresco area, you can bring the ​outdoors to you or enjoy it from a distance in one of the many appointed lounging areas.

A 700m walk to one of Albany’s most well-known attractions – Middleton Beach – or a 2.5km walk to the town center, a stay here means you are perfectly ​situated between two of the town’s most prominent sites. With ample activities & tourist attractions on offer in the beautiful Great Southern Region, your ​options for adventures and exploration are plenty. With all the modern comforts The Lookout has to offer, from remote controlled black out blinds to a ​generously stocked butler’s pantry, your stay here can be as energy packed or slowpaced as you choose.

Be it a romantic trip for two, or a family staycation, a winter getaway or a summer holiday. Your options are limitless.

Additional offerings

We wanted to curate our idea of the perfect holiday experience, and then allow our guests to freely tailor that into their own unique stay.

A holiday means something different to everyone. From sleeping in ‘til noon and spending the rest of the day curled up on the couch with a cuppa and good book overlooking the ocean, to hiking up Mt Clarence to see the sunrise, and then heading out to the beach for a day of fun in the sun. Or perhaps somewhere in-between the two. To personalise your stay, we have the following offerings available to add to your booking:

In-house Spa Treatments - The Temple x The Lookout

We have teamed up with our local go-to day spa, The Temple, to offer a luxurious addition to your visit to Albany, should you so wish to indulge.

In-house Massage, Reflexology & Yoga with Jemma Foy

Local massage therapist and Yoga instructor Jemma Foy provides a holistic approach to relaxation and health.

Grazing Platters & Champagne

What better way to start off your holiday than enjoying a glass of bubbles with your loved ones and a bite to eat? We offer an assortment of platters and bubbles that can be waiting for you on arrival or delivered to the home throughout your stay.

Early Check-in/Late Check-out

We know that everyone is itching for their holiday to start early, and most likely want to make it last as long as possible. We will always do our best to accommodate an early check-in or late check-out at no extra cost, just ask us!

If any of the above offerings tickle your fancy, please contact Sophie by emailing thelookoutalbany@gmail.com for more information and she will assist you with all of your enquiries as well as arranging all bookings. Is there something we haven't thought of? Let us know! We are always looking for ways to enhance your experience at The Lookout.

"It’s an amazing luxury house and has everything we needed for a holiday stay. I really loved the modern kitchen and enjoyed the breakfast time with the family every morning. The property is also close to the Middleton beach and the famous Fish& Chips shop. Sophie is friendly, thoughtful and easy to communicate.

Staying here is the highlight of our trip to Albany".

"Sophie's house was perfect and luxurious! Beautiful, modern home with the most stunning views. Spacious and spotlessly clean. Walking distance from the beautiful Lake Seppings and Middleton Beach. Communication was fantastic. We loved the kitchen and appreciated all the thoughtful extras that were provided (fresh bread and milk, a bottle of wine, eggs and fresh herbs from the garden, pantry staples, the list goes on!). I also loved the selection of books and managed to speed read most of them. Would love to stay there again!
