salrye is a unique eco friendly straw bale studio situated near Gnarabup Beach and was completed in Jan. 2014 by the owner/designer ,local skilled tradesman and artisans.

WE HAVE A MINIMUM STAY POLICY OF MINIMUM 2 NIGHTS throughout the year except christmas/new year holiday season. Contact me for updates, between 4 and 7 nights.

Similarly over easter, 4 nights minimum.

The studio is a 10 minute drive from Margaret River township, if you would like to to try local produce from the farmer's market or wineries or check the internationally awarded galleries at the bottom of town near the River.

The studio features half meter thick lime rendered walls and north facing floor to ceiling windows so in summer the long eaves exclude the sun's rays,the walls keep the inside cool and the seabreeze naturally flows through the house.

In winter the lower sun streams well into the house and the warmth is retained by the floor and walls making it a wonderfully comfortable enviroment for guests year round.

The large bedroom/ensuite has french doors leading out to a north facing secluded paved verandah /courtyard with table and chairs in a native garden setting,perfect for alfresco breakfast or lunch. PLEASE NOTE This is a one bedroom studio. Extra guests use sofa bed in the lounge area.

.The living area also has French doors leading out to the northern deck with bar b que ,herb/vege garden and succulent plants in a rockery.

The sofa in the lounge converts to a bed with inner spring mattress for additional guests. Extra guests are charged $30 each per night.

The west deck catches the seabreeze and has a remarkable set of re-claimed

Indian Cedar antique entrance doors.

The kitchen is fitted with stainless steel appliances and is equipped with a great variety of top of the range cookware and crockery., ideal for sampling the local produce from the farmer's market and wineries.

Step out of the Cedar bathroom door to a secluded outdoor shower ,great for rinsing yourself and bathers after a pre- breakfast swim at one of many beaches within walking distance

The owners Gordon and Ashesha have traveled extensively and worked abroad and this is reflected in the quality and range of international ,local and reclaimed fittings and furniture such as Moroccan lamps,Middle Eastern rugs,Indian sari curtains and locally sourced hand crafted Marri benchtops in the kitchen and bathroom

The linen is bamboo or Egyptian cotton, the doonas are down and feather.

All laundry is done on the premises, not in an Industrial laundry.

Beach towels supplied on request.

The driveway has room for 2 to 3 cars and or a boat boat ramp 5 minutes drive

salrye is within walking distance of one of the few protected beautiful beaches in Margaret River.

The oval at the end of the street is a dog exercise area, local dog beaches within walking distance.

Driveway gate secures your dog in a shady area with large dog house and bed.

Literally, down the road there are quality white sand beaches and reef swimming, diving and fishing with an excellent cafe nestled into the southern headland.

Walking/ riding trails go from Gnarabup all the way to the wonderful vistas of Surfer's Point and the mouth of the pristine Margaret River.

At least 8 world class surfing breaks are a 5 minute drive from salrye's doorstep.These include hollow beachbreaks, points and outer reef bombies suitable for professionals to beginners.

Stand up paddle board hire and lessons are a regular feature on the beach in front of the white elephant beach cafe.

The Cape to Cape Track can be easily and quickly accessed so if your after a day's trek the option is there.

If you bring a bike or hire one down here, there are many forest and beach trails nearby.
