S P A C E - plenty of space, to just take a moment......
Ard na Mara is a place of respite, it is away from the hustle of Busselton and the bustle of Dunsborough. We do have strong mobile phone connection and wifi however we encourage you to switch off - you deserve a break from the relentless communication and "always available" mentality. Take a moment to sit and enjoy the views whether it is of the ocean, the extensive garden or the Peppermint Tree grove.
Moving inside we like to call it Australian Bush Hampton's style; please look at the gallery for images but you can comfortably cater for 8 guests with one King room, two Queen rooms and one Twin single room and we have 3 bathrooms. We are very spoilt with heating and cooling with shutters, fans, reverse cycle air conditioning and in winter - a slow combustion wood heater. With white washed vaulted ceilngs, blackbutt floors, there is a sense of openess yet cosiness and a scenic outlook through every window.
