Great eight days on the farm with extended family (10 adults and 4 children) while celebrating our son's marriage. Kids loved being able to feed the pig our scraps, plenty of room to run around and ever obliging landlords who kept smiling even when we locked ourselves out of one of the bedrooms!!
Fabulous place for a family holiday.

We had a wonderful 2 nights at the Straw house. Everything we needed was in the house. The setting was so peaceful we could have stayed longer. Carolyn the owner made us so welcome with a fresh home made cake and a bottle of local wine. My overseas guests were really impressed. Also my 14 year old staffie felt right at home. We will return.

“Fantabulous!”

From original enquiry Carolyn was exceptional - nothing was too much trouble and she answered every query within hours. We were welcomed at the Straw House with a delicious choc and almond cake and bottle of wine. The spacious house and facilities suited our group to a tee and offers accommodation suited to large families and groups. It is excellent value for money. It is a fascinating house full of colour and quirky features set in beautiful bush. It was heaven reading on the verandah day bed - so very peaceful and relaxing.
Thanks heaps Carolyn - you and your Straw House are fantabulous!!

“Bliss”

I decided our family of 4 needed a short break. We already live in a beautiful part of WA- but needed something a little different. My priorities were:

Abundance of Space
Nature our doorstep
Dog friendly
Child friendly
Nearby attractions
Relaxing and peaceful
Mountain / running bike trails
Beaches

The above list met and exceeded my expectations. Plus there was more... Streams, farm animals, abundant bird life, beautiful forests and walks.

The property is ideally situated to many local activities and attractions and close enough to the town of Margaret River to pop in for essentials or a spot of shopping.

The most delicious cake and bottle of wine greeted us on arrival- and once settled we met with Carolyn the owner who was on hand if we needed anything.
The house is large, homely and uniquely comfortable. Everything we needed was provided for- and more.

Would I return?
Well I'm already looking for available dates....

“Great for large families with kiddies”

Loved this place! By the end of our 3 night stay it felt like we were leaving our home. Lots of bedrooms and majority have queen beds, lots of kids toys to play with, books to read, DVDs to watch. The kids loved walking down to the animals in the morning and feeding the pig our scraps and carrots to the lovely donkeys. It was such a quiet and peaceful place, but was close enough to do a few touristy things. Will definitely be making a return trip and recommending it to others.
The log fire was great for winter and heated the whole house really well!!
