Holiday House - Forest in the Town

Bedrooms 3
Space 160 m²
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Nestled in a forest setting, Holiday House is only 800m from town and 300m from the Barret Weir on the beautiful Margaret River. An ideal location to savour the delights of the shops and eating houses in the town; direct access to bush tracks for walking and cycling, and the river for swimming and canoeing.

A ten minute drive gets to the beach at Prevelly, with its delightful Greek Orthodox chapel, donated in recognition of the role of the Monks of the Preveli Monastery in Crete during WWII. Visit the many wineries and other great local attractions, maybe using the guided tours available from the Tourist Centre.

Pets may be accepted at the owner's discretion.

Set Up

The house is upside-down! Thus the upstairs contains the main living/dining area, the kitchen, and the master bedroom and on-suite bathroom, with a toilet accessible from the living area. The views are of the tree tops.

Downstairs has two bedrooms, a double and a twin, a bathroom/utility room, and a second living area opening onto the generous balcony with outdoor setting and barbecue.


This spacious house was built a few years ago by the owners, and nestles comfortably in its bush setting. The house is bright and airy, free from the noise of city life. We wish our guests a happy and peaceful stay, hoping they will spread the word about us and this beautiful area.

About Liz Williams

Originally from Liverpool. I have lived in Australia since 1977.

I am now retired, but was a Hospital Social Worker, specialising in Aged Care.

Liz Williams purchased this house in 2004

Why Liz Williams chose Margaret River

I bought the Margaret River property as an empty lot in 2004, and built the house in 2007. We had it solely as a holiday home for some years before entering the short term rental market in 2015.

I liked the location of the property for its convenience and ambience.

Warm and homely!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for 2 nights over a rainy weekend and loved it. The house was clean and welcoming - an upside down setup 2 bedrooms and bathroom downstairs with a wood fire and small lounge and a master with ensuite upstairs where the kitchen and main lounge are. Considering the wintry conditions i was surprised how warm the house was - we popped the split system on in the upstairs area for about 15mins and had to turn it off as we were hot! The couch is large and sat all four of us together no problems - the kitchen is fully equipped, the place feels like a home away from home. House is set back from the road in the trees moments from the river - beautiful setting very relaxing with town just a short walk away, excellent spot for when you want some peace and privacy but still have the local amenities close by. Thank you Liz we (and the dogs) will be back again!

Family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on a wet and windy Saturday afternoon, with our adult children with the intention of spending a relaxing weekend. And we were not disappointed!

The combustion heater soon had the whole house warmed up, and the views through the tree tops helped everyone relax and chill out. So much so that we spent that saturday afternoon and evening lounging around eating, drinking, chatting, laughing and just enjoying this cozy home.

The river being so close was a lovely bonus .... and made for a lovely evening walk.

Kitchen was very well equipped, beds were warm and comfortable .... and shower nice and hot. Everything was clean and comfortable. It only took 10 minutes to walk into the Bakery!!

Our only complaint when it came time to go home was that we hadn't booked for longer!

Went in a group of 6 people more than enough room. 2 bedrooms downstairs with one bathroom and warm fire place and 1 bedroom upstairs with lovely living space and another bathroom. Beautiful surroundings in the middle of the forest and not far from restaurants cafes and shops. Overall a wonderful stay!
