Slow Dog House is a simple but delightful stone cottage consisting of a spacious living area with a queen size bed, ensuite bathroom, two comfortable lounges, and a separate kitchen and verandah.

The interior of SDH is light and breezy and the linen is crisp and of a high quality.

In the living / bedroom area there is a split system which provides both heating and cooling. A mobile Dimplex oil heater warms the kitchen.

The cottage is surrounded by magnificent Eucalyptus trees in 20 acres of tranquil bushland.

We provide generous supplies of local produce including eggs, yoghurt, muesli, milk, bread, butter, home made jams, honey, Vegemite, ground coffee, a range of teas, and fruit for you to make a self-catered breakfast. For a snack, there are dry biscuits, pate, cheese and soft drinks. Where possible, we try to offer locally sourced foodstuffs.

In the kitchen is a gas stove with oven and grill, and a micro-wave. There is a full range of cooking utensils as well as cutlery, crockery, glass ware and kitchen implements.

SDH is located in the premier Margaret River wine precinct within walking distance or a few minutes drive of Cullen, Pierro, Gralyn and Vasse Felix wineries and the Cheeky Monkey Brewery. Alternatively you may prefer to stay put and enjoy the native birds and kangaroos.

We are approximately 6kms from the Cape to Cape walking track where closest to us is the Willyabrup coastline which has spectacular rocky coves, cliffs and idyllic bays.

Other distances are:
Perth 260 km / 3 hours+ (north)
Margaret River 25 km / 15 minutes (south)
Yallingup 19 km / 15 minutes (north)
Cowaramup 11 km / 10 minutes (east)

SDH is registered as a Wildlife Protected area and so unfortunately pets cannot be housed.

The benefits of staying at SDH are that there's no public transport, the nearest supermarkets are in Margaret River and Dunsborough, and there's a soothing silence at night.

We deliberately leave our guests to their own devices but as we live next door to SDH (but far enough away to provide you with privacy) we're available 24 hours a day if there are any issues.

Due to kangaroos on the roads at night, Ashley or Max are happy to drive you to any of the nearby centres and collect you later. These arrangements can be discussed with Ashley.


Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great location among wineries Excellent location in the Margaret River winery area, close to picture perfect beaches and Margaret River town. Impeccable and well equipped for a short stay sorrounded by nature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't have been better! The cottage is gorgeous, had everything we possibly needed and more. The location was perfect, close to wineries and Margaret River, Yallingup and Dunsborough. Even so it still felt so secluded. We would wake up in the morning, go for a short bush walk and see kangaroos out the back. Sam, the owner, was lovely and so accommodating. He really went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable and had food that suited our needs. We're happy to spread the word. We'll be back!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just what we needed Beautiful, charming cottage set in bush land, it was cozy and comfortable. The local produce was delicious, especially the fresh lemons and mint from the garden. And the fresh flowers were a really nice touch. Sam is a great host, really helpful, thanks for having us, we hope to come back again one day

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Per From our arrival at SDH we felt instantly welcome by Sam who showed us around the quaint and well maintained stone cottage, which was equipped with absolutely everything you need including fresh bread, fruit, milk, cheese, other condiments and treats! Everything was very clean & comfortable. It was the perfect place to stay to relax and feel like you were hidden away from the world but still in a great location close to all the wineries / breweries - in fact walking distance to Cheeky Monkey Brewery, Vasse Felix, Cullen's etc. We really enjoyed cooking breaky in the kitchen and sitting outside in the fresh air relaxing and having a few drinks. Sam is the best host - I cannot recommend this place enough and will definitely return!
