“Relaxing, spoilt by owners, lovely area”
Reviewed January 31, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

What a great and warm welcome from Kathy n Don! Fresh fruit platter, espresso coffee, milk, fresh laid eggs, complimentary wine".........my new favourite Kathy ensured our 12 and two 10 year olds were welcome to not only feed their chooks but collect eggs, hand feed kookaburras, and borrow swimming noodles, boogie boards and sand board!
Fun time had by all ie sand boarding, climb golouster tree/diamond tree, swam at spring fed pool, ate fresh Marion, 4WDing, coffee factory, patted baby Aussie wildlife , tram ride to waterfalls.
Marri House plenty big enough and close to cafe, grocery shop, butcher, bottleo, and attractions!

“A beautiful home with lovely host”
Reviewed January 13, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

We had a wonderful stay in Marri House. It is truly a home away from home. It is absolutely everything you need for a fabulous stay. Kathy and Don were very welcoming. From a beautiful fruit tray with a great variety of fruit on the dining table to fresh eggs and milk in the fridge, we can’t ask for more. My younger daughter especially enjoyed going to Kathy’s house (which is next door) for feeding the Kookaburras.

The house was spotlessly clean, well designed and with an eye on detail. The kitchen was very well equipped. We cooked every night throughout our stay. While enjoyed strolling out to town and bush tracks during the day, we stayed up later and later each night for family board games and Wii together. We had a memorable stay in Marri House.

“A class above the rest”
Reviewed November 21, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

As Americans who've lived in Aus for four years but always knew our stay down under would come to an end, we have seen many portions of this great land. Almost every time we've stayed in self accommodation and none have impressed us like Marri House. Don and Kathy were very welcoming and attentive to our motley bunch ranging in age from 22-months to 77-years-old, and even had an assortment of fresh food for us that we arranged ahead and threw straight on the barbie on arrival.

Houses we've rented in the past have had few utensils in the kitchen, or dull knives, or have been drafty. Nothing like that will bother anyone staying in this beautiful, new, and well appointed spot close to town yet snug in the southwestern forest. Everything in the house is top quality and they have thought of everything (there are even wooden tongs with the toaster in case you are toasting something small)!

Our kids enjoyed the kids channels on Foxtel, as well as Kathy kindly inviting our older one to help collect eggs from the hens for us to take home. My wife and mother-in-law enjoyed the two Kookaburras which always seemed happy to come and say hello.

Even if there was nothing to see and do in Pemberton I think we'd want to go back to what felt like a perfect combination of bed and breakfast (the welcome and attentiveness), resort (robes, custom touches, and fresh fruit platter), and self catering (a quite spot with everything you need).

I've been too lazy to write reviews of other places in the past but this place warrants praise!

“Book this one!!”
Reviewed September 17, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Our stay at Marri House was just perfect. My husband and I were on a weeks holiday with our 1 year old daughter and were looking for somewhere with space which was clean and beautifully kept and suitable for such a young one. Prior to having children, we used to stay in top hotels and I still look for that luxury hotel feeling wherever we book. We weren't disappointed. Marri House is beautifully appointed, really clean and fresh, from the surfaces to the linen, and yet feels homely. Our hosts, Kathy and Don, were brilliant, answering all of our questions before we got there and providing a constant stream of fresh eggs from their chickens who live at the end of the plot. This kitchen is just brilliant, and is probably better equipped than my own kitchen at home! You won't find yourself trying to cook dinner with one tiny pan and a blunt knife like you do in many self catering places. From the Nespresso to the juice press to the brand new blender, you won't be disappointed. The Pemberton area is gorgeous and was just great for getting away from the city and relaxing as a family. Marri House made our stay, and even the rainy day we spent with the fire on watching Foxtel cartoons with the little one was just brilliant. Thank you Kathy & Don!

“Absolutely Terrific”
Reviewed September 6, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Our family of four just left Marri House and it was fantastic! Kathy and Don are extremely thoughtful hosts who have built a wonderful little piece of luxury in Pemberton. The house is everything you could need and more. We've stayed at lots of villas and apartments around the world and hands down Marri House is the most thoughtfully organized place we've ever had the pleasure of visiting. Here's what the entire family had to say...

"Immaculate!"
"Very Organized."
"Just AWESOME!"
"Wish we could live here."

If you are looking for a place to stay in the Pemberton area, don't hesitate - book now!

One of the most beautiful places we've ever stayed down south. The accommodation was immaculate and the utilities were amazing. The kitchen was better kitted out than my own home and if there was anything you required, Kathy the owner, was there in a second to ensure you had what you needed. The house is very new and the design is modern, practical and comfortable. The location is ideal and even though you are in the town centre, you feel away from it all as it's located on a hill on the outskirts of the town.
Thank you Kathy for such a wonderful visit, you are without a doubt the hostess with the mostess!!!
