The owners, Gordon and Ashesha, are ex English language teachers (Perth Universities and overseas )so if International guests need help or specific programs (eg IELTS) can be arranged. Ashesha has extensive cooking experience from running cafes in London and Fremantle so gourmet breakfasts(special diets etc) can be prepared (especially on weekends.)

There is a secure fence in the driveway especially for your dog!

The Neighborhood

The space, fresh air and views, being able to walk to the beach and take my dog for a swim!

Getting Around

The studio is 11 kms. form Margaret River and there is no public transport.

Other Things to Note

We are dog friendly but the studio garden is unfenced, however the driveway [on the shady side] has a dog fence so no problem with your dog escaping if you go out!

Millions of people are using Airbnb to sleep in strangers' homes, beds, and even couches. They have an amazing selection and you can't find their stuff anywhere else. There is a catch: you often need to contact several hosts to actually get a place to stay, so make sure you give yourself some lead time.

Place's rules

Respectful of the neighbours - so not a party house! If you bring your dog please be sure it behaves well. Your dog possibly gets anxious if left alone for too long. I will call or text if that happens and expect a response. Dogs shed hair! Please be aware of this and don't let your dog on the furniture and especially not on the bed! Extra cleaning will be charged for. Leave the house clean especially the bbq. Please report any damage or breakages.
