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 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.

The cottages were very comfortable and had all the amenities. We loved being out in the bush but also a quick drive into town. The cottages are well spaced so you feel like you have a privacy. The wifi worked great! I met Gail and she was lovely and very helpful. I highly

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 you will be able to return soon.

It's a great environment for familes, with walks along the trails providing an insight into the Australian bush and its native occupants. Our kangaroos are wild and roam freely through and around the bush block, so we're extraordinarily fortunate that they feel comfortable here. Thanks Mark and we look forward to your return.

These delightful cottages are nestled amongst a variety of gum trees cleverly identifiable whilst wandering the walking tracks on our arrival. Provisions for a continental breakfast a welcome surprise as was the bottle of local wine, setting the scene for a comfortable stay in a

Many thanks for your kind comments. As intimated, we identify our wonderful trees with coloured disks which I sourced from the UK several years ago. I took a punt on the diameter of the hole in the middle and was exceedingly fortunate in finding nails which fitted snugly. Anyone reading this will be fascinated to know that the hot pink disks signify that that this tree is, in fact, a snottygobble. There, I bet you can't wait to get down to explore the bush block for examples of this exotic sounding tree. Thanks again.

The cottages are amazing. You have everything you want. Out side we encounter kangaroos, rabbits, bulls, cows, sheep and a lot of nature trails. The place is only 5 minutes from Margaret River. Each cottage has BBQ pit and everything was just perfect.

Many thanks. Might I mention that we don't have sheep, or cattle, on our property. Some may be on an adjoining property? And that we aren't welcoming of rabbits, We're so glad you enjoyed your stay.
