About our home

Our home is a unique construction of 2 wooden railway carriages and spacious open living areas built on and around the carriages. Situated a few kilometres outside the popular tourist destination of Margaret River in Western Australia, we are within easy drive of the town, beaches and wineries and 2 and a half hours drive from Perth. If you are looking for quiet, peace and healthy outdoor living in the forest, this is the place for you.

We have 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, an open plan kitchen and living area, a second living area and a laundry. The main bedroom looks out onto a landscaped back garden with a wooden verandah and has an ensuite bathroom. There are two double bedrooms inside one of the train carriages and the second carriage houses a small children's bedroom with bunk beds and the main bathroom. We have plenty of toys for children and a large trampoline and sandpit outside.

The carriages still have many of their original features such as the guard's seat and break wheels.

We are situated on a 70 acre plot of forest. Our nearest neighbours are my husband's parents who look after the horses, chickens and large vegetable garden and abundant fruit trees on the property. They are about 20 metres away from us. They are able to provide you with help and information or privacy - as you wish!

We have cars available for exchange and two adult bicycles and one child's. One of the adult bicycles is fitted with a child seat.
