About our home

See the ocean from our kitchen. You can be in the water in 10 minutes. We built this house 8 years ago and have developed the gardens and surrounding spaces with an eye to comfort, views and self sufficiency. The house has 3 bedrooms - 1 King size bed, 1 queen size bed and 1 queen size sofa bed. We have a very well appointed kitchen with Miele dishwasher and great big oven. There are 3 toilets, 2 bathrooms, big lounge and dining which seats 10. We have an enclosed courtyard where we grow our vegies and fruit trees to keep them protected from the pesky kangaroos who love our vegies as much as we do! Outside we have a fire pit for those starry nights to sit around and talk and play music. We also have a hot/cold outdoor shower in the garden for washing off after a beach visit. The Margaret River region combines the best of world class wineries, restaurants and beautiful wilderness and beaches. See

More about us

  1. We are a married couple without children. Kym is a Soil Scientist and Margaret an IT Administrator. We love to travel and experience new cultures and different lifestyles. We enjoy lovely surrounds and would treat your home with respect and care. We have had a couple of exchanges to Italy and Adelaide and think it's a wonderful way to share our beautiful part of the world with people from another country.

Where is it?


We live near the ocean in the Cape Leewuin - Cape Naturaliste region which is 115kms long and 40 kms thick on the South West corner of Australia.
The house is in a peninsular of forest that protrudes from the national park forest into the surrounding working farms mainly wineries, cattle and sheep.
There are world famous wineries with restaurants nearby.
The beaches are magnificent and being in the national park they are totally wild. There are spectacular views along the ocean Cape to Cape walk (7 days in total end to end).
Local town is Margaret River (10 kms) with all the services available as well as many cafes, restaurants and art studios.
The local community is apparently the happiest and most engaged in Australia and there is certainly many varied things to do. The local tourist bureau is a great way to see what is happening in the district.
