We booked a 4 night stay for our family of 5 adults and 2 kids in June. Unfortunately, we weren't quick enough to book the bungalow and had to stay in the 3 bedroom cottage. The animal feeding sessions every morning was nice and our kids really loved carrying the guinea pigs and baby rabbits. Peter and Rene were nice and friendly (until we told Peter we were leaving, that is -- more about this later). However, accommodations left much to be desired. There was one air-conditioner for the whole house. We had to sleep with the bedroom doors opened to try to let some warmth into the room. The BBQ was old. On the first night, the fire actually burned through the gas knob and melted it! We had to stop cooking halfway for fear of an explosion. When we reported it to the management the next morning, they replaced it with a new one by evening. All the furniture in the house were old and dated. And the 3rd bedroom was really 3 single beds stuffed into an entryway. It's the first thing you see when you open the front door to the house. Perhaps coming from a city, we were not so used to limited hot water supply, so to our great surprise, the hot water was completely used up after 1 or 2 persons had their shower. With all these problems, we decided not to end our vacation in Margaret River this way, and informed Peter on the 3rd day that we were leaving the farm. We had only stayed 2 of the 4 nights. Peter did not ask us how we felt or made any attempt to ask for feedback. His immediate response was that he would have to charge us in full and that no refunds or discounts whatsoever was possible. I was rather disappointed with his attitude. It was on this sour note that we left.
