This property is a little slice of heaven; you will not find a better place to escape day to day life. Set in the Margaret River wine region of WA, nestled between Yallingup and trendy Dunsborough, this property is a true retreat - you will feel you are a million miles away yet if you wish to venture out, there is so much on your doorstep: the most beautiful beaches in the world, wineries and many tourist attractions. Catering for all seasons, pool in the summer, fire in the winter.

The space

The house is fully equipped and is suitable for 2 families, or four couples. We do not accept bookings for large adult groups (21sts etc). Will consider your request (eg, responsible adults - girls weekend is a popular request!). Maximum 8 adults.

Bedding: 2 KS beds and ensuites bathrooms, 1 QS bed, plus a 4th bedroom with 2 sets of single bunks. There is a third bathroom to share plus an extra toilet.

Linen: Guests are required to bring their own bed sheets, pillow cases and towels - however we do have a linen service if you wish to hire your linen.

There is a rumpus room with Foxtel TV, loads of dvds, books and board games for children and adults alike to enjoy. There is another living room with a TV which is great for relaxing in the afternoon with a book, or just a separate area for the adults!

The inside dining table is long seating 10 great for dinner. There is a double sided fire place for a log fire. The kitchen is modern with all appliances overlooking the vineyard.

There is a great alfresco with a huge outdoor dining table where you will enjoy long table lunches or bbq dinners in the warmer months. This is overlooking the pool. There is a solar heat pump on the pool and if you keep the blanket on every night, it will stay at a beautiful temperature during the day. There are sun lounges and umbrellas.

The verandah that overlooks the main lawn and vineyard has a day bed and outdoor chairs and also a tall bar table with stools, and also a hammock. This is our favourite spot to sit and look out in the afternoon / early evening with a glass of wine and tasting plate; you will enjoy the surroundings, or you will love watching your kids play soccer or other games. We have even had the adults playing lawn boules (provided) and have had some fun using it as a golf driving range.

In the garage we also have a tennis table and a pool table for more fun and games. There is also a large trampoline on the property for the kids.

The children will also enjoy exploring down by the dam where there is a stream they can paddle in - or we have had good old fashioned boat races with twigs and home-made wooden boats! The property is set on 10 acres so there is plenty to explore. We have resident kangaroos as well. You will not see any other houses or neighbours so you really will feel you are away from everything. However - do be aware that we do have neighbours and noise travels, so please be respectful in the evenings and if you are playing music outside (we have a boom box provided) be mindful of the volume as the evening gets later.

The laundry has a washing machine for your use, and in the garage there is a dryer should you need it.

The garage also has beach chairs, buckets and spades etc which you are free to use during your stay - plus sometimes we have surf skis left there that you are also free to use.

In the pantry we have a top shelf where we keep food (the owners) and we have a shelf that is full of condiments that guests are welcome to use - spices, salt, pepper, oil etc. We know that it can be a pain when you are travelling to stock up on everything so we are happy for you to use - however just ask that you leave a note if anything is running low so we can replenish.

We also keep the property stocked with handwash, body wash, dishwashing liquid, dishwasher pellets, tea, coffee, sugar.

Rubbish: As this is a rural property there is no rubbish collection from the local council, so we have a hired large skip / bin for your rubbish to be disposed in. We have this regularly emptied, however if you note it is rather full, please let us know and we will have it emptied immediately.

Guest access

Guests are free to use the entire house and the garage, which has items you may use for the beach etc; plus a pool table and tennis table. Guests are free to go where they want on the property. There is a large shed away from the main house, which is locked and unavailable for guests.

Interaction with guests

I will be available to answer any of your questions by mobile or email at any time.
If by any chance I am unavailable / out of the country... we have friends 5 mins from the property that can answer questions or tend to any issues.
For key collection, we can arrange for it to be collected from a separate house or in a lock box on the property, for which we will give you instructions to access.

Other things to note

Parents with young children should note there is an unfenced dam on the property so will need to be diligent. It is set away from the house. There is a grassed lawn with a fence, but not completely enclosed.

There is a water tank and as rainwater is precious in the South West, guests need to try to limit water usage (no long showers like my daughter takes).

The property has a security alarm (for which we will give you the code) and security cameras.

As this is a large rural property, from time to time there will be maintenance during your stay (for vineyard; lawn mowing; pool) but no-one will come to the house. Also, during March/April there may be grape picking - a date that we cannot choose as it is up to the wine goods as to when the grapes have to be picked! We usually have a space of a few days to have them picked and try to organise this when there are no guests at the property. However, some guests have actually enjoyed witnessing the experience in the past!

Thanks Renee for a wonderful stay. We all enjoyed it, and like most trips, it all went way too quick. The house was great and it was good to see the children running around outside and enjoying all the facilities that is on offer for them. A great place to chillax and unwind.

A beautiful property with the perfect amount of remoteness, yet everything exciting there is Down South is close by. Great place to go down with a group of friends.

What an amazing place for a family get away!!! From the vineyard to the pool to the bush surrounds this place was a a real slice of down south heaven. Renee has thought of everything to make your holiday a breeze- kids entertainment (swings, trampoline, games, table tennis and theatre room) and adult fun too (including bikes, martini glasses and huge boards for platters). You really don't need to go anywhere else. Can't wait to visit again!!

Renee is absolutely lovely and so easy to deal with. Her home far exceeded my expectations. The pictures certainly do not do this amazing place justice. Could not have asked for a more picturesque setting. Will definitely be back!

Renee User ProfileRenee is a superhost.

I'm married with 3 children (2 teens & an 8 yo); we live in Hillarys, a coastal northern suburb in Perth. We love WA, being outdoors and the beach. We love spending time at our holiday home in the South-west. We also enjoy travelling within Australia and overseas with our kids (and hope to continue to do so for as long as they want to be with us!!). Having been lucky enough to have travelled extensively, I know the importance of having a great place to stay - and have found that the accommodation can make or break a holiday, especially when travelling as a family!
I am proud to be a "Super-Host" with Airbnb, and will make every effort to ensure you have a great stay and will be contactable at any time to answer any questions before or during your stay.
