Elaine and Graeme met us at the house and were instantly warm and friendly. Elaine was very happy to provide information about places to visit in the locality and spent some time to go through some general housekeeping about their property. The carton of milk in the fridge on arrival was appreciated so we could enjoy a cuppa after our journey before heading out to do a food shop and explore! The view from the house instantly installed peace and calm and watching kangaroos in the garden early in the mornings was the highlight for our toddler. The 3 bedrooms were spacious with plenty of storage and the open-plan kitchen/family room well equipped with a gorgeous wooden dining table facing views over to the bay. The lounge was very comfortable and can be closed off using sliding glass doors so any noise from the TV is unlikely to disturb any sleepers.
Communication with Elaine was easy with quick responses to text queries received.
The house is perfectly positioned to explore the northern part of Margaret River - our 3 night stay was not long enough but gave a great taster of what's on offer in the locality.
We totally enjoyed our stay in this large house with beautiful view to Dunsborough Bay, only 5 minutes to Meelup Beach, shops and not far to other attractions in this area. Our host Elaine was very friendly, and one night we were also invited to family gathering with live music in her property, which we really enjoyed. Our last day we were nearly two hours delayed departing due to my daughter having a surfing lession, but our late departure was not a problem for Elaine,

Due to a sick child, we had to relocate some of our family to this house. Elaine and her husband were very accommodating (even taking a late night call for child medicine).
The house is well maintained and clean and has beautiful views of Geographe bay up to Busselton.
Would definitely stay here again.
Beautiful peaceful views lovely get away
Thank you Elaine and Graham for allowing us to stay at your wonderful apartment. The apartment is beautiful, and we enjoyed having such a nice, stylish home for our short holiday. We can't wait to come back in the near future! Will definitely be recommending Whitesands to friends and family.
We had a great stay at elaines villa. The villa was fully equipped with anything you could have needed to have a good stay down south. The villa was two minture walk from the beach and a five minute drive to the town centre of dunsborough. The furniture, appliances, showers, a/c and tv all worked perfectly. Thank you for letting us stay at your villa Elaine. Kind Regards Pascal.
The hosts made us feel welcome and were unobtrusive in this rustic and peaceful setting that is away from the maddening crowd.
Greame and Elaine made us fell very welcome.
My wife summed it up when returned to Meelup Hill after a beautiful day of exploring Cape Naturalist, and said. It fells like we are at home.
Excellent location with plenty of room in this spacious home. Very comfortable beds as well.
We will definitely holiday here again.
We loved our 3 day stay at this home. Our hosts made us feel very welcome and the gift of fruit, wine and biscuits was a thoughtful touch. There was plenty of space for our family and the views across the bay from all the windows were stunning! We will definitely come back. Thank you Graeme and Elaine for a perfect holiday !
Our stay at Elaine's place was wonderful. The house is perfect for a famliy of 4 and we all loved the beautiful beach-style in the house. It is perfectly equipped and was absolutely clean and lovely. We stayed 5 nights around Christmas and it was defintely too short. The beach is 1 min to walk and the area around Dunsborough is amazing. Thank you Elaine for having us.
Elaine and her son were great guests, very nice and friendly persons. I highly recommend them as very good guests. They left every thing so clean and tidy. I hope they

Elaine booked the apartment last minute. We did not meet in person, but after she left, the apartment was nice, clean and tidy. I would recommend her, as she seems a very good guest.

Thank you Dodd family! We’re so glad you had a wonderful Christmas in our home. Everything was perfect when we returned. And thank you for your note. You were wonderful guests. Come back again!
Elaine and her family were wonderful guests. Though their visit was brief, they were just passing through, it was nice getting to know to them a little bit. It seemed we had a lot in common. Easy-going, respectful of our home and friendly. What more could one want in a guest? We'd welcome them back any time.
Elaine and her family are great to host. I would invite them back any time. They left my place immaculately clean. They stripped the sheets, emptied the trash, brought all linens down to the washer and dryer, and left a sweet thank you note. They are great communicators. Bravo Dodd family--this family makes AirBnB worth doing on both sides and it is so refreshing guests who realize it is a two-way arrangement! There kids (grown adults) are mature, kind, thoughtful and the whole family was a delight to host.
Great group! Elaine and her family were perfect houseguests, I was extremely comfortable having them in my home. They were all very outgoing and arrived ready for a good time. Everything was left clean ( I believe the kitchen was even cleaner after they were finished than the way I left it in my rush to get to work that morning). I highly recommend hosting Elaine and her family.
I have to agree with all the other reviews of Elaine and her family. They were wonderful to work with, so gracious and nice. It was my pleasure to meet them and have them stay in my home!! They are welcome anytime!
Elaine and her family were the greatest!!!! They were wonderful guests and very nice. They were extremely neat and clean. We couldn't ask for better. We had a great time spending Thanksgiving together!!! We hope that they stay with us again and would highly recommend them to any other host.
Elaine and her family are absolutely delightful.
They and their children have been family friends for many years and are wonderful both as hosts with their South West properties and would be perfect guests.
For many years our family spent holidays with their family in their home in Dunsborough, Western Australia and our times together were thoroughly enjoyed. Even then Elaine was a born hostess!!!
Just beautiful people.
