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, 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.
