We love our remote tiny cabins and luxurious down south getaways, but what about a stay with a slice of history?

Australian politics and history buffs will get a kick out of this one – the former Cottesloe home of war-time Australian Prime Minister John Curtin is available to book for long or short term accommodation!

Curtin Home Cottesloe

It’s a comfortable, colonial-style home close to beach, and housed four generations of Curtin family over 75 years!

Curtin and his wife Elsie built the home way back in 1923, with the house undergoing major conservation and interpretation works back in 2010, including restoration of the big, beautiful garden.

Even cooler, inside you’ll find an array of fascinating information on the lives and times of John, Elsie, their children and even beloved dog, Kip.

Grab a cup of tea and sit in the sunroom while you read the Curtin Family home booklet, or you can even listen to an audio tour of the house based on Elsie’s writings.
