There’s no doubt family holidays and weekend getaways are some of the best times—which is why more and more people are choosing to build their own holiday home in their favourite place on the coast, in the bush or in the countryside.
Modular designs are a great option for holiday homes, and we’ve built hundreds across Victoria and NSW, for couples, retirees and families, helping them bring their vision and ideas to life.
Whether you plan to use the home exclusively for your own holidays, or rent it out while not in use, there are some key design features to look out for and factors to consider.
So in this article we’ve narrowed the focus to 3 popular modular designs for holiday homes to provide you with some inspiration.
Front view – Anglesea
If you’re looking for space, luxury, and privacy, the two-storey Anglesea has it all! Split over two levels you’ll find loads of living space, three spacious bedrooms and three bathrooms, making it ideal for up to three couples or two families who are holidaying together.
The ground floor includes a spacious living zone with access to the optional front deck, plus two bedrooms each with their own bathroom. Upstairs, bedroom 3 includes an ensuite and walk-in robe, plus a separate living zone and private balcony.
Side view – Anglesea
The split skillion façade gives the home a modern yet timeless appeal that suits any location. Plus, the addition of the optional garage gives you extra room to store all your holiday gear and essentials, like bikes, fishing rods and surfboards.

A home that is well-suited to larger rural and coastal blocks, the Hampton 19 is a fantastic option for a holiday house. With four bedrooms and a large, open central living zone, it can easily be adapted to suit your needs and is big enough for the largest of families.
The kitchen is open and ideal for entertaining, and the walk-in pantry is great for keeping all the essentials on hand, while the bedrooms include a walk-in robe or built-in robes so you have plenty of storage there too.
