Why Sandra Rutledge / John Rutledge chose Tapitallee
Carriages is a relaxed unique accommodation, converted from 1920 goods train carriage filled with interesting antiques. We are a sanctuary for local wildlife and have many birds who call in each day. The salt water swimming pool is an extra treat. We are 30 minutes to many beaches and 15 minutes to shops. Sorry but we have a no pet policy

Comfortable and quirky
The Carriages are back-to-nature comfortable, warmed by a fireplace that had been lit before our arrival. A full kitchen with everything you need, including John's delicious coffee. Close to Bundanon. Simple, quirky and great.
The property is beautiful! We loved it, well equipped and the hosts are very nice and kind and they left us some goodies. Definitely recommend!
Great family guests welcome back anytime
Sandi and John were so very welcoming and kind enough to offer me an extra night for free. I
Such a beautiful property going to sleep of a night listening to the songs of nature divine and waking to such a peaceful space.
It was such a joy to come home to after long days spent catering a festival
A delightful relaxing eco holiday stay
I really enjoyed my five nights stay in Sandy and John's beautifully appointed antique railway carriage. The setting is bushland quiet and green but still not too far away from the many interesting surrounds. I was happily included in their comfortable lifestyle and I felt very much at home. I am happy to recommend this relaxing interesting venue to all and sundry.
kind regards from one happy traveller from Fremantle W.A.
We were very happy to have Di as a guest, welcome back anytime and can recommend her with confidence to any bnb she chooses to stay in the future
We are a small Solar Company who came to this area for work. Our four boys stayed at Carriages for 8 days. They were spoilt with Breakfast items left for them and the heating turned on when arriving late after work. Sue and Sandra were so easy to deal with , even checking in every couple of days to see that they had all that was needed to make their stay a home away from home. Would thoroughly recommend Carriages to anyone. Big thank you Sue and Sandra for all your help.
Sue was the host as we were away, said everything went smoothly and were great guests welcome back anytime
Very quirky converted & extended railway carriage nestling in a peaceful bushland setting. Comfortable beds & plenty of space. Ideally suited for visiting both the coast beaches, water activities & the nearby lovely valleys & countryside.
