About Bruce Murray
From the owner - Liz Williams: Originally from Liverpool. I have lived in Australia since 1977. I am now retired, but was a Hospital Social Worker, specialising in Aged Care. In retirement I have leased the property to Kirkland Parton Pty Ltd, and Mr Bruce Murray is the manager. Although he is shown as a new member (2019), he has been assisting me with bookings on Stayz, and then HomeAway since April 2016.
Why Bruce Murray chose Margaret River
Liz bought the Margaret River property as an empty lot in 2004, and built the house in 2007. She had it solely as a holiday home for some years before entering the short term rental market in 2015. She liked the location of the property for its convenience and ambiance.

Cute House in the forest yet just a short walk into town
Lovely location that really feels like you are away from everything yet it's within an easy walk of the town.
The key lock box is great as there is only one set of keys. It meant we were able to leave the keys in the box & whoever returned first could get into the house. We had three cars there and parking was a bit tricky especially when the small minded neighbours (Cheers Tours) coned off 'their' bit of forest parking area that we had used to turn around.
The reason for the 4* rather than 5 is the beds. It's great that all the beds had electric blankets (July in MR is cold) but the queen beds creak quite loudly. I'm a light sleeper & any movement caused the bed to creak which woke me up.
Thanks for your review, Erica. Comment re the beds we haven't had before, but we'll certainly have a look at the issue. We're glad you enjoyed your stay otherwise.
Very happy overall.
Our group from Perth, Canberra, and the USA all enjoyed our stay and would book the property again. The only negatives were:
1) No heating in the downstairs bathroom.
2) Mattresses in the downstairs two bed bedroom were like hammocks
3) Not enough electrical sockets in convenient locations.
Thank you for your feedback. We welcome all comments which enable us to exercise our policy of continual improvement. We are also happy that you enjoyed your stay, and look forward to welcoming you again sometime in the future.
Spacious and comfortable.
Great location walking distance to town. Holiday Home is spacious and comfortable. Good value for money compared to what else is available. Would stay again for sure.
Beautiful home in the trees
Very private and secluded amongst the trees but only a short walk to town. Sitting on the deck is beautiful and the couch upstairs is epic. We'll be back next year and would live to bring the kids one day too. Watch out for the pole next to the water metre in the driveway, we arrived at night and I hit it with the car :(
Surrounded by nature with all the home comforts and close to town
The house has a great location compared to the other holiday homes in the area. Comfortable and within close walking distance to Margaret river town site if you can manage the hill. Beautiful walking tracks in the forest along the river.
Surrounded by nature, each window frames the trees. The kitchen is well equipped. It was especially nice having decent coffee in the morning – a coffee pod machine and milk frothier. The couch is very comfortable too. The top living and bedroom area is lovely, which is where we spent most of our time. Our little dachshund loved sitting at the window watching the outside world. He had to be carried up and down the stairs to take him out for walks, and watched as there is no fence, but all worked well. The downstairs bedroom opens onto a patio and also has a beautiful view of the trees. Lovely waking up and being greeted by nature. All in all a very homely place. Would stay again.
Beautiful views, very comfortable and wonderful walking trails.
Our family had a wonderful time.
The house was clean & comfortable with amazing views! We will definitely be back!
