This Airy Australian Getaway is Actually a Prefab Beach House

It's kid-friendly, too

Here's another beaut from Australia that will have you seriously considering going Down Under for your next beach town vacation.

This bright and open getaway for a family of five is located on a stunning stretch of land in Aireys Inlet, a popular surfing destination 74 miles southwest of Melbourne. And get this: it's a prefab house built for $560,000 AUD (roughly $418,000.)

Designed by ARKit, a design-build firm that specializes in advanced prefabricated building solutions, the three-bedroom Light House, as it's called, was factory-constructed before being transported to its site. To incorporate as much of the surrounding coastal landscape as possible, the architects created large decks that extend the indoor-outdoor potential of the home while also doubling the living area.

Here, a long kitchen allows for communal dining with guests, while a bunkhouse room with custom trundle beds gives the kids their own space to play. A generous portion of the cedar-clad exterior walls feature floor to ceiling windows that let natural light flood through the space. Have a look around.
