Our 3 day getaway to Margaret River, for the first time, was perfect mainly due to our stay at Bridgewater. Beth and Rick are amazing hosts and our room was perfect for us. We stayed in the Studio Apartment and it was clean, comfortable, cozy with a view of their beautiful garden. Wisteria and lemons were in full bloom and the colors and smells were wonderful! The refrigerator is stocked with a great continental breakfast--muesli, fresh milk, fresh fruits, real and instant coffee, nice bread and best of all--Beth's homemade marmalades, 2 varieties! The room is very quiet, too, and the king size bed is very comfortable.
Beth and Rick are fantastic! We had a vague idea of a few things we wanted to see and do during our time there and they went out of their way to understand what we liked, and then directed us to the perfect places. We saw some amazing places that we would not have gone to without their guidance. They were very respectful of our privacy, but also invited us for morning coffee and an afternoon glass of wine if we wanted to join them. We did! They have a lovely home, yard and garden and you can walk down to the Margaret River or walk around their yard and see their olive trees, lemon, lime and grapefruit trees and beautiful flowers.
Bridgewater is perfectly located for getting around the Margaret River area. It's right on the Caves Road and a short 5 minute drive to the town center. You could get to either lighthouse within about 40 minutes--but why rush? There's so much to see and do along the way in either direction--just ask Beth and Rick!
I don't see how anyone could be disappointed staying at Bridgewater.
