Margaret River, Margaret River Region, Western Australia
The Straw House is a huge straw bale farmhouse on a rural property. With plenty of room for large families, a well equipped kitchen, as well as a tranquil setting, far from the madding crowd.
The house is very spacious, with rooms in every direction. All the bedrooms are large and have comfortable beds, and there is space for extra large groups if needed.
Whether you come as a couple or as three families on holiday together, The Straw House will fit your mood. Warm yourself with the wood stove in the winter, and stay cool in summer thanks to the wonderful insulating qualities of straw bale construction.
Sit on the verandah and listen to the birds and the crashing of the waves from Redgate Beach (a 5 minute drive away). Look across the vines and olive trees to magnificent bush, with towering karri trees picking up the light of the westeri...

A group of 10 adults, a toddler and a baby have just enjoyed three days, celebrating a birthday and a family reunion, with the majority of guests from interstate, at the very comfortable and welcoming Straw House. There is plenty of room in the house,...More

The good: large, quiet, comfortable and very well equipped. Allow dogs which adds to the family holiday :-) The not quite so good (nothing major that can't be managed). Being located well south of MR most of the family attractions are a car ride away....More

Hi Sandra. Thanks so much for your review and comments. We're really pleased that you enjoyed your stay, in spite of the wretched invasion of mice (a post weather event hazard, unfortunately). We're getting on top of them now, you may be pleased to know!...More

About the neighborhood
16km from Margaret River, and just 5km from the village of Witchcliffe, The Straw House is on a large rural property, surrounded by natural bush, farmland and olive trees. With the nearest neighbours well out of earshot, your break away from the city can be as peaceful (or as noisy!) as you choose.
The property is ideally situated for beach, bush and wineries - all within a very short drive. And the hustle and bustle of Margaret River, with shops, markets, supermarkets etc is 10-15 minutes drive.
A 5 minute stroll along the farm track takes you to our friendly neighbour's collection of animals. Bring a bag of carrots to feed the donkeys and alpaca, or your food scraps for Patricia the Pig, the chooks, peacocks, ducks etc.
Your dog will be in heaven here - so much space to run and p...

How to get there
Most guests arrive from Perth on the Bussell Highway, which comes through Margaret River (stock up on food and drink supplies at Coles, Woolworth or IGA, or some of the great little independent shops).
Continue on the Bussell Highway south to Witchcliffe (9km from Margaret River).
Turn right at the Gull fuel station onto Redgate Rd, and after about 3km turn left onto Thompson Rd. This is a gravel road so please moderate your speed. Kangaroos can pop out unexpectedly, so be very careful.
At the T junction at the end of Thompson Road turn left, then right onto Hadley Rd. The entrance to The Straw House is about 300 metres along and is clearly marked.
Please drive like grannies on the driveway, ie very slowly!
