Overview
Holiday Rental House -
7 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 15
Margaret River, Margaret River Region, Western Australia
The Straw House is a huge straw bale farmhouse on a rural property. With plenty of room for large families, a well equipped kitchen, as well as a tranquil setting, far from the madding crowd.
The house is very spacious, with rooms in every direction. All the bedrooms are large and have comfortable beds, and there is space for extra large groups if needed.
Whether you come as a couple or as three families on holiday together, The Straw House will fit your mood. Warm yourself with the wood stove in the winter, and stay cool in summer thanks to the wonderful insulating qualities of straw bale construction.
Sit on the verandah and listen to the birds and the crashing of the waves from Redgate Beach (a 5 minute drive away). Look across the vines and olive trees to magnificent bush, with towering karri trees picking up the light of the westeri...

Large house amongst the farms just out of Witchcliffe. Stayed with 10 friends over the Leeuwin concert weekend. Rustic with 7 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. Large stocked kitchen and dining with a pool table and table tennis table in a shed adjoining the main house. Great place to stay with a large group or a couple of family's.

Huge house for a large family or extended family. Great facilities on quiet property with farm animals. Carolyn left us a tasty cake and bottle of wine and made sure our stay was a pleasant one. It was great to have a library, dvds , board games, table tennis and pool table which were well used. Would definitely recommend.

Stayed here for a week before Christmas and it's a loveley house for a big family gathering with plenty of room for everyone including downstairs lounge plus a huge family room upstairs for watching films / playing games etc. Don't forget to visit the boat ramp at Hamelin Bay to see the stingrays while you're here!
