Situated just 5kms (NE) of Margaret River township and within easy driving distance of the region’s numerous attractions, the immensely popular Margaret River Hideaway and Farmstay is a gazetted ”Land for Wildlife” property.

Our 4 gumnut rated accommodation includes 2 well-appointed Studios (suitable for 1-4 persons) and 7 very comfortable 2 and 3 bedroom cottages, catering for between 2 and 8 guests. Many guests, including some from overseas, return again and again, such is their enjoyment of our peaceful retreat.

There are many reasons to book direct, the 1st being that you will be increasing our ability to improve our offering by not having to pay commission. We also have a loyalty programme in place for returning guests, so there are ongoing benefits.

This is the best family holiday I have ever been on. The accommodation is perfect, including disability access and the lovely starter breakfast provided. You can tell that all our needs have been considered. We woke up every morning, greeted by the many different animals on the farm coming to say hello. Kim is the most beautiful, loving host and Farmer John shows great care when spending time with the families during feeding time. The numerous playgrounds and cubbies kept the children busy on the farm all day. I felt a great sense of peace and serenity.

We loved our stay at this delightful farmstay. The cottages are set in a quiet forest just north of Margaret River, far enough away to be away from the touristy town, but close enough to all the galleries, wineries and beaches for which the region is famous. The cottages are excellent with high quality amenities. A bonus is that we were able to take our little dog, who had a fenced area of the garden, from which she watched the alpacas, turkeys and pet kangaroo. A lovely few days. Thank you, we will be back!

This is our second visit and loved it even though our kids are big!!! It’s a great place to relax and have family time including our two staffys!! The house immaculate and clean, great fenced area for the dogs and spectacular views across the paddocks and bush. Close to Margaret River and all the region has to offer!

We took our 2 boys down for 3 nights and they had the best time. The animal feeding and the many playgrounds kept them entertained. The animals roamed the property and the boys loved watching them from our cottage. Kim was a great host, providing lots of educational information during the animal feedings and dvds to keep the kids entertained. Will definitely be returning in the future.
