The beaches of Margaret River are world famous for their clean surf breaks and spectacular scenery. For families with young children there are several calm safe swimming beaches to suit little ones.
There are over 100 vineyards in the area offering award winning, gold medallist wines and many are featured in James Halliday's Australian Wine Companion 2013.
We would love to direct you to the wineries that will suit your palate, and if you're a beer connoisseur we can direct you to half a dozen great local breweries
I work from home as a sustainable building/landscape designer and writer and love to hear about what's happening in your part of the world over a glass of wine. Whilst I am usually working and here to let you in on arrival. its always helpful if you let me know what time to expect you, as I use the afternoon hours to do site visits, meet clients etc and am not always in
I recommend you call or text me in the morning of your arrival date so we can organise access if I am not able to be at home when you arrive.
Looking forward to hosting you in 2013, and wishing you a brilliant year ahead!

Pamela made us very comfortable and our accommodation was excellent. Her home is delightful, beautifully designed and spacious. She was a gracious and thoughtful host and we enjoyed exploring the Margaret River region. So much of interest to do and experience. I would highly recommend Pamela. As our first Airb&b, it could not have been better. Kathy and Jon Goff
The attic with a forest view was a sanctuary from the respite of the city. It was easy to find and Pamela was very welcoming. I would definitely go back again.
Paula and her companion Jan booked the attic boudoir and asked for another bed to go into the room, which I was happy to organise. Paula arrived unannounced, without letting me know her arrival time. When I showed her the room she complained...there were stairs (its an attic room), there was only a queens size bed and separate bed and not a separate room each (she only booked one room and I carried the extra bed upstairs for her) there was no ensuite (clearly stated on the airbnb page). By this stage I was feeling quite attacked and that it didn't matter what was on offer it would not satisfy her. She admitted she hadn't read the room description, when booking, and had booked on the basis of my reviews only. As it turned out I was able to accommodate Paula and Jan both in their own room for two nights. Paula was very tired on arrival and that may have explained her mood, but in my three years of hosting, I have never known this ill-will towards me as a host. Her travelling companion Jan was an absolute delight and her presence made their stay so much better. So, one of the morals to this tale is...read the room's airbnb page well, so your expectations are in line with what you've booked, try not to arrive exhausted and let your host know when you are arriving.
There is no better place to stay! We really enjoyed it and would absolutely stay there again. Pam was very helpful and has been a fantastic host.
Pamela was a friendly and welcoming host and the Attic Boudoir was a comfortable room in a pleasant setting. We believed at the time of booking that we would have a bathroom/toilet attached to the room but this was not so and negotiating stairs in the night was a little hazardous for us.
Pamela was a lovely host who was very welcoming and had a property in a gorgeous and convenient location. Our attic room was large with its own little balcony overlooking the peaceful forest. We really enjoyed chatting with and getting to know Pamela, and she kindly allowed us to use her kitchen facilities. Would definitely recommend a stay here!
