About the property

Nestled in the privacy of nine acres of native bushland and predominantly Marri forest, Freshwater Springs offers the perfect retreat. This beautifully appointed home sits high on the hill in a small clearing of forest with views through the treetops to the surrounding undulating valley. Abundant bird life thrive on the property and there are regular visits from the resident kangaroos.

Expect your stay here to be a truly memorable experience. We encourage family groups with our focus on providing a relaxing retreat for people to reconnect in a beautiful, peaceful and natural environment.

To avoid disappointment school leavers and adult groups under the age of 25 need not apply to rent this property. Parties are strictly prohibited.

The Home and it's Immediate Surrounds

Architecturally designed, split level with self-insulating rammed earth and abundant use of glass, this cosy country property is in a class of it's own. The open plan living area is ideal for entertaining or just relaxing in the warmth of the slow combustion wood fire. If more privacy is required the games room, complete with pool table and interchangeable table tennis, can be closed off using the concertina doors. No matter where you are in this property the stunning forest surrounds are in full view.

Split levels and careful positioning allows each of the four spacious bedrooms their own private outlook. An ensuite leads off the master bedroom, while the main bathroom includes an indulgent deep bath. Comfortable and homely furnishings complete the inviting atmosphere. The home is fully self contained with most modern amenities.

Hotel quality bedlinen and bathtowels are hired on a per person basis - don't BYO, you're on holiday! Other items may also be hired on request from our caretaker.

Sweeping lawns blanket the three tiers of retaining walls up from the forest to the paving immediately surrounding the house. Outdoor furniture is provided along with a large gas BBQ.

A short walk leads to the property's own private creek and waterfall. Walk on a few hundred meters to explore the Margaret River waterfalls and a choice of stunning walking trails.

Mountain bikers will love the single track of 'South Carters' which connects to the world-class 'Pines' only a five minute ride in from the property.

A hidden gem

  • 5 of 5

Our three families loved the stay. My kids were dismayed we couldn't move in permanently. We all brought bikes and enjoyed getting out. Two of us were keen mountain bikers and the fact that gnarly tracks were just a few hundred meters away was a bonus. It's hilly and for anyone considering riding with young family I recomend going out for a recon before taking young kids out. Wonderfully quiet and secluded. A beautiful homey property we were really able to relax in.

Highly recommended for a relaxing break

  • 5 of 5

The important point for us was that the property suited our group size of eight and made for a very comfortable three night stay. After a hard day of eating and drinking it was great to be able to relax in the bush type setting away from the hustle and bustle. The other point to make is that the property was as described in the web site literature supported with effective relevant communication from the property manager. Next time I will bring my bike!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your lovely feedback. And yes, you can ride in to the Pines through South Carters directly from the property so do bring bikes next time! We'd love to have you visit again and very happy you enjoyed your stay.

Excellent family holiday house

  • 4 of 5

Our group including grandparents, parents and teenage children thorougly enjoyed our week. We loved waking up with bird calls in the bushland, but being close to Margaret River. The whole family enjoyed pool table challenges, access to wi-fi and stargazing.

Fantastic Stay's Property

We really enjoyed our stay at Freshwater Burnside, it is a lovely, well appointed house in a beautiful bush setting. The location is an excellent position to be a base of operations for day tours throughout the south-west.

Beautiful property

Stunning property nestled amongst the bush. Clean and tidy with excellent facilities. Children and adults loved all the bush walks in the property. We would stay here again in a heartbeat. Owners were lovely, accomodating and very easy to deal with.
