5 minutes from Yallingup and Smiths Beach, 12 minutes from Dunsborough, 30 minutes from Margaret River and surrounded by award winning Wineries, restaurants and Galleries. Far enough away from town to avoid the crowds but close enough for your morning coffee and swim.
The property is registered as Land for Wildlife with the Department of Parks and Wildlife so there is a strictly NO PETS POLICY- NO EXCEPTIONS. That includes small dogs. Local caretakers and our perminant neighbours keep an eye on the property and are vigilant. They have been instructed to contact us if they notice anything suspicious at our property and if any pets are seen on our property.
The bird life is amazing with so much variety - Blue Wrens, Red, Yellow and White Breasted Robins, Rosellas, White and Red Tailed Black Cockatoos are just a few of the 30 species we have seen at Three Bears Cottage.
The cottage has 3 bedrooms and 1 bathroom which is a semi ensuite to the main bedroom. The toilet is separate. It is nestled on a 4.5 acre secluded property in the stunning Yallingup Hills. The kitchen/living areas and 2 of the bedrooms face north with floor to ceiling windows and doors to take maximum advantage of the winter sun. There is a wide veranda around half the cottage and a huge deck overlooking the slope that leads down to the winter creek that flows from June to October. There is a 6 burner hooded BBQ under the veranda and a 10 seater table and umbrella and sunloungers on the deck. The kitchen is fully equipped and the cottage has a great open plan living area with a wood fire for winter and air conditioning for summer, flat screen TV, video / DVD, Foxtel and Bose sound system with iPod dock.
There are some lovely walks along the emergency fire brigade tracks at the back of the property eg. a 500 m walk will get you to the Petra Olive Estate to look at their farm shop or have a coffee and biscotti or antipasto selection. A 5 minute drive away is Yallingup Woodfired Bread for freshly baked warm bread. We are a 30 min walk 3 km or 3 min drive from the well known Little Fish restaurant at Gunyalgup.
Once the birdlife quieten down at night you can even hear the surf pounding Smiths Beach and Yallingup. There are 2 kayaks for your use.
