How did we pick these Albany stays?

Our editorial team selected these Albany stays on this list based on price, location and real customer feedback from booking sites and review platforms. Where applicable, we used our own personal experiences in Albany to make recommendations.

Where should I stay in Albany?

  • Middlebeach for beaches: If you want to spend your days soaking up the sun and the sea, we suggest booking accommodation in Middlebeach. There you'll have an extended coastline to choose from as well as Emu Point in close proximity.
  • Princess Royal Drive for walking trails or national parks: Albany neighbours the Torndirrup National Park, Gull Rock National Park, Baker's Junction Nature Reserve and Two Peoples Bay Nature Reserve. As these parks are quite spread out, we recommend finding a holiday home within the town centre or near Princess Royal Drive.
  • City centre for family-friendly activities: Getting to the region's top family holiday spots is easiest from the city centre of Albany. With a couple main roads leading to most attractions, it'll be no hassle getting from A to B.
  • York Street for wineries: If you find accommodation near York Street in the town centre, then you'll have the Alkoomi Cellar within walking distance. York Street also leads directly to the Albany Highway, which leads to Wignalls Wines, Oranje Tractor Wines and Wilson Brewing Company.

Cheap holiday homes in Albany

We found some of the cheapest stays in the general area of Mount Melville and Spencer Park.

Save money by picking spots that are further inland and don't have direct views of the ocean. According to Airbnb, the average price per night in Albany is around $190, but there are a plethora of cheaper accommodation options to choose from under or around the $100 mark.

If you're looking at saving a few extra dollars, we recommend looking into private rooms compared to entire homes or studio spaces

Luxury holiday homes in Albany

The most luxurious areas are by the ocean, including Middleton Beach, Albany CBD and Emu Point.

Your five-star stays have larger outdoor entertainment areas, some of which have BBQs, waterfront views and in some cases, garden spaces. This accommodation also tends to sleep more people, and is great for groups of friends who are getting away for the weekend.

Albany is quite a hilly area, so stays like the Bayview on Morley, Rowley House and the garden home offer views of both the city centre and the ocean.

Pet-friendly holiday homes in Albany

Albany is a pet-friendly area, offering a wide range of properties that will welcome your pet. If you're bringing along your furry friend, we suggest looking for stays in the Albany CBD, Mount Clarence or Emu Point areas. There are also plenty of outdoor reserves such as Foundation Park and Eyre Park that allow your dog to run around freely without a leash. We've chosen these homes as our top picks due to their grassed backyards which are closed in by high fences.

Frequently asked questions

Is it legal to stay in a holiday home in Albany?

Yes. You are allowed to stay in a holiday home but it's still advised that social distancing practices are followed.

What should I bring to the holiday home?

We recommend packing:

  • For the beach: Swimmers, extra towels, hats, sunglasses, sunscreen
  • For national parks: Comfortable walking shoes, hiking essentials (optional)
  • For wineries: Dress shoes

What should I consider when booking a holiday home in Albany?

A few things we suggest keeping in mind when booking accommodation include:

  • Air conditioning/heating. Depending on what time of year you're going, you'll want the option of central heating as well as cooling.
  • Outdoor balcony. One of the main perks of staying in Albany is the picturesque views of the water. So picking a stay with an outdoor space is sure to make breakfast (or dinner) that much more special.
  • Onsite parking. If you're driving to Albany, be sure to book a stay that has its own private parking spot.

How can I get to Albany?

If you don't want to drive, you can catch a train to Albany's local train station. From there, if your accommodation is in the town centre, you may be able to walk or simply order a taxi. However, we suggest driving if you can, as it will make getting around a little easier.
