We have driven past these cottages many times over the years but have never previously stayed here. Well that has all changed. These are nice comfortable cottages. They are clean and with all the facilities you require for a relaxing few days in the Margaret...More

Thank you David for taking the opportunity to visit our little bit of paradise. We've owned it since October 2001 and firmly believe it was the best decision of our lives. Gail has been managing the property for almost 6 years, which has been a...More

Booking and confirmation of my reservation was trouble free. The key was easy to collect and the surrounds blew me away as I am a wildlife transporter and to have kangaroos outside my door each morning was the icing on the cake. The cottage had...More

It's one of the joys of owning this wonderful property that I've been able to stay in all 8 cottages at one time or another; and I can't say that I have a favourite. They're all pretty much the same, though the bathrooms in 1,...More

What a true gem this place is. Combine the wonderful location, bush, wildlife, cosy, comfortable cottage and the wonderful Gail - it’s a true mix that is just perfect! This was our 2nd visit and we were not disappointed. What was supposed to be a...More

Thank you so much for your comprehensive review. We agree that a stay at our bushland retreat is an ideal tonic and that a stay of more than 3 nights will go a long way towards revitalising the senses. Thanks again and we do hope...More

Cottage is VERY well furnished with a fully equipped kitchen and lots of utensils and cutlery. Location is close to Margaret River town (5mins) but is far enough that you enjoy the peace and tranquility of Margaret River. Internet connection can be a bit intermittent...More

10 out of 10 is not an exaggeration, Margaret River has many good accommodation places, but this one is probably the best kept secret jewel and by writing this review I act against my interest, as I do not want to many people to discover...More

Thank you Natalie. Our "Land for Wildlife" property has been proven the property of choice for many thousands of visitors through the years. Some have stayed more than 20 times and (in some instances) return with their grandchildren...to soak up a bit of bush life....More

About
Description
Our 8 rammed-earth cottages are fully self-contained, with each having 2 bedrooms (see note), fully-equipped kitchen, air-conditioned living / dining room and (shared) bathroom. Cottages are randomly scattered on ...More our 20 hectare (50 acre) bush block and we're within easy driving (5kms) distance of Margaret River township, beaches, wineries, cafes, restaurants, shops and the region's best tourist features. All cottages have been completely refurbished and we're the equivalent of a 4-star rated property (4 gumnuts in our terminology). Free Wi-Fi is available in all cottages and (following a great deal of effort) can now support streaming. Note: Our lead-in tariffs are for 1 or 2 persons occupying 1 bedroom. If guests wish to use the 2nd bedroom, we charge an extra bed fee in order to cover the additional costs of linen and cleaning. Less
