“Wonderful getaway in Margaret River” We have made Seaside our home away from home for a week over the summer holidays for several years. It is a large ( 4 bed, two bathroom) and comfortable family home with all modern conveniences, and some blissful extras like an outdoor shower. The location is excellent, in Prevelly within walking distance of Gnarabup beach with its beachside cafe. Beaches are safe and Prevelly even boasts a children's playground. I have no hesitation in recommending it to any future Margaret River holiday visitor.
Who’s up for adventure on the South Seas? Or, if not the seas themselves, how about the most idyllic beaches in the southern hemisphere? We’re talking private desert islands, blue lagoons, coral reefs, palm trees and sea turtles. The allure of the South Pacific doesn’t diminish inland, either - the Outback and the mountains of New Zealand see to that.
Whether you’re a surfer or exist to sun yourself, the beaches of the South Pacific are world-class. Australia’s Bondi Beach and Byron Bay are international icons, and Bora Bora’s Matira Beach is so perfect it looks photoshopped. Houses and apartments in the South Pacific are typically best by the beach.
The islands of the South Pacific are straight from a fairy tale - or perhaps a pirate story. Pure white sandbanks seem to float on the ocean, fringed with palms and surrounded by the bright blue sea, while dormant volcanoes conceal deep lagoons. Dolphins play, turtles roam and travelers relax.
Visit Middle Earth
New Zealand is a place so magical it’s synonymous with Tolkien’s fictional landscapes in The Lord of the Rings. Traverse great mountains, explore Fiordland National Park on South Island and visit the set of Hobbiton in the north. You’ll be spellbound from the moment you step off the plane.

4B Princess Palm Apartments
Just the best
Beauty apartment with amazing views and balconies to soak it all in. The host Jacqueline is a lovely warm thoughtfull person, just the extra touches with a bottle of wine and chocolates to welcome us. The apartment has absolutely everything you need..home away from home. And the views..just amazing! The Woodies from Whitemans Valley (Erica) …
Sunny Spacious Seaview Stunner
Even the weather matched our stay - wonderful
Couldn’t have asked for better facilities.
Quiet, clean, warm and wonderfully equiped.
Super accommodation. …
A Virgin Island in the Sky
Close to City & Value for Money
The apartment came very handy while attending our conference in Sydney. Much lesser in price than what it would actually cost to live in City itself. The 2 minutes walk from Train station and then 30 mins' direct train to City offered easy connectivity. We'll be back next year! …
AVARO HOUSE - Beachside & Swimming Pool
Perfect location/space for relaxing getaway with friends or family
Can not fault this place at all- such an idyllic outdoor setting with deck, pool and lounge chairs over-looking the beach, makes for the perfect spot to entertain guests or hide away for some R&R. …
An excellent family break in a beautiful part of Victoria
What a fantastic property for a short break in country Victoria just out of Ballarat.
My total experience, from booking to check out was excellent. Malcolm was very helpful and accommodating of our large group of 8 adults and 7 young kids.
All of the adults enjoyed a relaxing long weekend while the kids entertained each other with board games, nature walks and table tennis.
Even thought we were there in the peak of winter we still enjoyed the grounds and enjoyed long nights around the fire place with cold beers and glasses of wine.
This was an ideal (and reasonably priced) base for our trip to Sovereign Hill for the 'Winter Wonderlights' which I also highly recommend.
Great rooms and plenty of fold out bed options for a big group like ours.
I hope to come back again in summer to enjoy the outdoors even more.
Note: I would recommend getting the extra heating option (available when booking) during the winter months as it does get very cold (a little below zero while we were there). …
We rented this apartment for 4 nights as a family on our arrival in Australia. It was perfect for us; a home from home. It was spotlessly clean and very well equipped. It is in a good location; about a 15 minute walk to the Manly Wharf and all the restaurants of Manly. However, it’s worth mentioning that the walk to Manly centre is down a fairly steep hill which you then have to walk up again on your return to the house!! It wasn’t a problem for us at all though. We used the Manly Fast Ferry to go straight into Sydney which was really convenient.
Robyn was a great host, extremely responsive with answers to queries. She recommended a great restaurant ( Hugo’s) for my son’s birthday.
One minor complaint is that there were no free tv channels, only internet tv which we couldn’t get to work for some reason but it wasn’t a big deal for us as we were out sightseeing most of the time.
All in all, a fabulous house and a very professional host. …
