Description

This beautiful quirky straw bale house has all the ingredients for a magical holiday. The house has a rambling quality, which makes it ideal whether you are a couple wanting a cosy hideaway, or a large group wanting a special retreat. Completely secluded amongst olive groves and bush, with glorious evening light on the magnificent karri trees, you can relax on the front veranda and listen to the sounds of nature, with kestrels, wagtails, blue wrens and frogs all around.

When the wind comes from the West, you can hear the crashing of the surf on Redgate Beach just over the ridge.

The house has the wonderful insulating qualities of straw - cool in the summer, warm in the winter. A wood heater with abundant firewood from our own plantation will ensure your warmth and cosiness whatever the weather

Stroll around the farm, and you are likely to see kangaroos and emus. Go spotlighting at night in the natural bush behind the house, and you'll find possums, phascogales, bandicoots and maybe even a coupan :

The house itself is spacious, with several living areas, 2 TVs with free-to-air satellite reception, a fully equipped kitchen, with plentiful good quality pots, pans and appliances, an enormous marri wood dining table, beautiful lead-light windows and comfortable beds.

There are 6 large bedrooms - 5 with queen beds one is on a loft, and a 6th bedroom with twin beds. The enormous upstairs lounge can be closed off for a 7th bedroom with a sofa bed.

There are 3 bathrooms with loos, so no need to queue

There is a slate top pool table in the games room, as well as a table tennis table which can be wheeled out for a game on the back patio.

A short drive down Redgate Road takes you to the wonderful beaches of Redgate, or head to the bright lights of Margaret River only 10 minutes away. The prestigious wineries, Leeuwin Estate, Voyager Estate, Xanadu, Cape Mentelle and Redgate are 5 minutes away.

Alternatively, just stay put, relax, and enjoy a bit of bucolic bliss

We like to offer favourable rates for longer stays - just ask. We are happy to negotiate. At Easter or Christmas/New Year, we will only consider bookings for at least a week. This gives us the time we need and value with our own families, so hope you'll understand.

Other public holiday week ends 3 night minimum.

LEAVERS - we do accept leavers, but under some fairly stringent conditions. We've been very pleased with most of our leavers groups, and believe in giving them a fair go.

Activities

There is horse riding in the vicinity, or bring your mountain bikes for a blast through the famous Margaret River trails. There is a local surf school, and plenty of wind-surfing or kite surfing for the intrepid. Fishing, whale-watching, caving - everything is here or within easy reach. Go rock-climbing or abseiling. Take a Winery Tour, climb the Leeuwin Lighthouse - whether you want to fill your days with activity, or nothing at all - this is the place to do it

If you are interested in any particular activites, ask us to provide info on local providers. We'll do our best to help

Pets

We welcome well behaved dogs of all sizes. There will be a $10 fee charged per dog per stay, with a maximum of 3 dogs.

Dogs deserve holidays too And they do love it here - so much space to run and play.

The house is 400m from the nearest road, so a safe distance from the sparse local traffic.

We ask owners to keep their dogs off the furniture and out of the bedrooms, and not to leave them unattended inside the house. There is a 'dog den' with a kennel inside to keep your dog/s safe when you go out without them. Alternatively, they can be chained on the verandah, or shut in the laundry room or the games room if necessary.

If they have coats that shed hair, owners should be prepared to clean up the hair for the benefit of future visitors. Owners are also asked to clean up their dogs' droppings from the garden area and around the outside of the house before they leave.

It's a 5 minute walk to the other end of the farm where there is an abundance of farm and pet animals, including ducks, chicken, peacocks and guinea pigs, so your dog/s must be kept under strict control when visiting these areas. Around the house we get visited occasionally by kangaroos. Please don't let your dog/s chase them. However, feel free to let them chase rabbits

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful & relaxing house We loved our stay at the straw house. From the relaxed environment to waking up to the kookaburras. The house is homely, fully equipped & relaxing. The peace and quiet was lovely and the freedom and space for the kids and dogs to enjoy was a big bonus. Feeding the animals was a huge hit. Amazing holiday fun had by everyone and we will definitely be back. Thank you.
