“FANTASTIC HOUSE, HOSPITALITY AND REGION”
Reviewed November 14, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

A great find thru Trip Advisor and it was the best! Outstanding drive into the property and then it is all in front of you. We were so excited to arrive and find home cooked cake and a bottle of wine waiting for the 5 of us. So many rooms to choose from...to sit, to ponder, to sleep! Clean sheets etc, co-ordinated to match the decor of each room. Just loved the central kitchen and all the décor throughout The Straw House. The stairway filled with books and then the Loft. Pre dinner drinks and nibbles whilst gazing out ....Just so much to take in! The outdoor day beds were well used...even at night. Will definitely go back when we visit WA again.

“Relaxing Stay”
Reviewed July 11, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Our family and another just stayed here and we all could have stayed longer. This place is fabulous if you want privacy and space. The house is full of character and charm. We loved the log fire that kept us warm night and day. The welcome wine and cake from Sophie was lovely and unexpected. The house is fully equipped with everything you might need. A couple of requests were met promptly and with a smile. We will definitely return.

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”
Reviewed September 3, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

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....
