A unique, privileged & natural experience awaits!

This 2 bedroom converted artist's studio is set on 5 acres of gentle sloping pasture surrounded by paper barks and red & blue gum trees. With views across the valley and forest of the Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park, across "THE" Margaret River, down the river to the famous river mouth and out into the Indian Ocean, this property is a feast for the senses. Admiring sunsets, tracking moon journeys, marvelling at the bright stars in the wide expanse of sky, watching the weather rolling in and exploring the paperbark forest at the river edge are only some of the experiences available to a person fortunate enough to stay at this exclusive property.

Only a 2 minute drive from Surfers Point in Prevelly and an 8 minute drive to Margaret River, staying at this secluded property will give you that elusive "well kept secret" feeling. You will be one of the few who get to experience this side of Margaret River.

The house is light and airy and is an architecturally designed former artist's studio.

For comfort all year round the house has a reverse cycle air-conditioner. The house is set up for all of your home comforts including a spacious kitchen, washing machine & dryer, wireless internet & local phone, LCD television, DVD player and stereo.

For your leisure we have kayaks available for use (for the able-bodied only!). Wander across the fields and take one of our boats down through the paper barks to our private river access. Launch one of our boats and a leisurely 15 min paddle will take you to the River Mouth where you can swim at the popular beach (observe current safe swimming advice) and watch some world class surfing. You can also walk to the River mouth via the "Cape to Cape Track" and around to Cape Mentelle, or walk south towards Redgate Beach.

Check the swell and in minutes be out surfing at any of Margaret River's legendary breaks.

Perfect safe family swimming is minutes away at Gnarabup Beach. This protected beach has a boat ramp, lovely snorkelling and the well known "White Elelphant Cafe' for great coffee! (check seasonal opening times)

The property is home to many native animals, enjoy your evening watching the kangaroos or even an emu dine in the Valley and be serenaded by birds whose song fills the air at twilight. The gentle breeze and sound of the ocean will soothe you into a restful slumber. Star gazing here is unrivalled!

House Specifics

The Villa is comprised of two storeys with two entry points. From the rear driveway you can enter through the lower level door. On this ground level are the two bedrooms, the combined open plan bathroom (shower and toilet only) and laundry, and the sitting/childrens' sleeping area. The two bedrooms are equipped with queen size beds, bedside tables and lamps, and pillows and duvets. The sitting/childrens' area is a small open plan space outside the two bedrooms with a single bed and trundle bed underneath, and a bedside table and lamp.

The upper level has a large open-plan living/dining area & fully equipped kitchen. The front door here is your main entrance.The living area opens up onto a deck which has a Balinese-style daybed, outdoor dining furniture and BBQ. The deck overlooks the marri trees, valley and National Park. The inside living area has comfortable couches, large LCD TV & DVD player, air-conditioning and a entertaining sized dining suite. Above this area is the loft bedroom with queen bed and roof window, accessed by ladder (able-bodied only!).The kitchen overlooks the secret walled garden of the property with its terraced gardens and stonework featuring local limestone and granite. A stream full of fish meanders through lush gardens. At River Valley Villa's main door upstairs is your very own herb & salad garden.The blue gate is your house's private entrance.

The Villa is located next to the property's original home, Pearl River House, but maintains its privacy through both houses being oriented in different directions.

Please note, guests do not have access to the walled garden or courtyard, so as to preserve privacy and space between the two houses.

FAMILIES WITH YOUNG CHILDREN PLEASE NOTE: The house has a water feature(garden stream, flowing 'moats' in winter around house ), including a large unfenced dam in the paddock, and of course the river. The paddock itself is fenced and gated but determined children could climb in. Children need to be closely supervised when outside and owners accept no responsibility when this fails to happen.

A pathway adjacent to the Villa has a three metre drop to the ground as the gardens are terraced. While there are border gardens, there is no fence or handrail. Again, children need close supervision.

DOG OWNERS PLEASE NOTE: As this property is surrounded by National Park we have many visiting animals including kangaroos. Your dog is welcome here if he/she is social, well behaved and even tempered. It is our duty to cause no harm to the existing flora & fauna. Please watch dogs around the water features to avoid falling in. We do not have a fenced area as such at the property to contain dogs, only the upstairs uncovered deck. We do have a kennel and chain at front door for guest's dogs that are used to this.


Weddings considered. Please apply to owners thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Place/ Amazing Views The four of us stayed here for 2 nights including our dog and we absolutely loved it. The views are truly breathtaking and the deck is a great place to have a bbq and a drink in the evening. The layout of the Villa is excellent and the Kitchen is well stocked with everything you need to make your stay a memorable one , we even had a bottle of wine and a personal greeting upon our arrival.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good location, lovely surroundings My family of 6 stayed here for 3 nights in winter. First off, I had mistaken that there would be 2 bathrooms so was surprised to find only one to share among the 6 of us. Despite that, we had a lovely stay at the house, which had a well-equipped kitchen, reliable wifi, and sufficient heating. The walk to the river, though muddy, was very rewarding. I can imagine being here in summer would be so much better. Beds were ok, a bit too springy for my liking but nevertheless gave us good sleep.
