Guest access

Margaret River is a destination that truly offers something for every age, taste, budget or ambition. The region is most famous for its wineries that produce many fine white and red wines that are exported all over the world. The Margaret River flows through the centre of the region, passing the Margaret River Township that is 8km from the ocean. Although the area is named after this town, it spreads all the way along the coast from a few kilometres south of Busselton, out to Cape Naturaliste and the spreads over an area about 30km-wide down the south coast to Cape Leeuwin, Australia’s most south western point.

View our native kangaroos, especially at sunset and sunrise.

We value our guests privacy so although you are able to contact someone 24/7, we will leave you alone otherwise.
Keys are collected from the office or from a key box just outside the office outside of work hours.
Weekdays 9-5 only.

I will not be there to see you personally in because detailed instructions will be sent to you upon booking confirmation as to directions, key collection from our office point etc. Plus much more information including maps and 'features' of the property.

The neighborhood

The Margaret River Wine Region is truly one of the great holiday destinations of the world. Blessed with a perfect Mediterranean maritime climate, the four seasons are gently defined in the soulful corner of Western Australia
The surrounding area will leave you with plenty to do but the best part of all is just enjoying the surroundings of your 'home away from home' for the time you spend here.
Famous for international surfing competitions, Margaret River mouth is 10 mins drive away where spectacular scenery and awe inspiring waves may be viewed along this stretch of coastline.

Year-round, the Margaret River Region offers premium wineries, superlative galleries and art, remarkable caves, superb and diverse accommodation, fine dining, beautiful coastal and forest scenery, excellent swimming, fishing, world-class surfing beaches, golf courses and history.

It is an area of outstanding hospitality and beautiful country with rolling green hills and thick forests. Caves Road is named after the several large caves that it joins, with daily guided tours available. The coastal scenery is rugged and breathtaking in many parts. There are many fantastic beaches from the world class surf beaches of Prevelly and Yallingup to the tranquil clear waters of Geographe Bay.

A tranquil heaven perfect for families. We have family over visiting from Ireland so we needed somewhere to cater for a young couple a family of four (10month & 4 year old) and two grandparents.. This house suited everyone perfectly.. Also even though it feels private and secluded it is only a five minute drive to Margaret river town.. thank you Belinda we will definitely be back ☺️

Belinda is a lovely host, she's very accomodating to our requests and answers messages very quickly. Her house is beautiful, we were so surprised with how well it was equipped. Our guests from overseas thoroughly enjoyed their Australian outback experience, especially watching the kangaroos hopping around so close to the house grounds. We will definitely be back!
