We were one of 2 families sharing the 4 bed beach front villa called Catalpa.
It's in a great location, right on the beach, walkable to the local town, and easily accessible to all the main attractions in Margaret River.
The managers on site were very friendly and helpful, they recommended a winery to us which wasn't even on our list and ended up being our favourite.
The villa itself is very spacious, has all the facilities you'd expect and is in very good condition.
To be balanced- my (slight) criticism would be that there were very few coat hangers, and the pillows weren't that comfortable - however this really was a minor issue, and compared to all the positives about this place, including washing machines, DVD players, stereo system etc. it in no way detracts from 5 stars.
Some additional nice touches, that shifted the villa from being good to great was that there was wood paper etc. for evening log fires, and on our final day when the BBQ gas ran out, it was replaced free of charge, no questions asked.
Overall I'd recommend this villa highly to anyone visiting this beautiful part of the world, we'll be going back.
