From Spa Resorts to Vineyards Stays, 6 of the Best Accommodations in Margaret River

Petite Eco Cabin

If you’re visiting Western Australia’s Margaret River, and looking for a place to rest your head post-winery visits or adventure day, you’ll be spoilt for choice.

The region south of Perth, encompassing Margaret River, Augusta, Bussleton, Dunsborough and Yallingup, has stays ranging from quaint bed and breakfasts and basic holiday homes, to sumptuous hotels and resorts, and even overnights on working farms and — ideal if you’re planning on visiting them in the day — vineyards.

So, what are the most special spots among them? We’ve rounded up the best accommodation in Margaret River right here.

Petit Eco Cabin, Yallingup

Petite Eco Cabin is a single cabin with windows that take in views of its surrounding farm and Windows Estate vineyard. The timber inside the cabin comes from a family farm, and all fixtures, fittings and décor was made in Australia by local artisans. The cabin captures and stores its own rainwater, and a solar hot water system provides hot water. Without a doubt, the cabin’s highlight is a vintage outdoor bath that runs hot water and is near a fireplace that you can use during winter.

Tree Chalets, Busselton

Tree Chalets has two chalets on its 90-acre, family-owned bushland property, both powered by sun and fed by rain: Chalet Rosegum and Chalet Bluegum. Listen to nature sounds from the chalet’s deck, soak in its outdoor bath or curl up with a glass of red around its indoor fire. The property also offers loads of nearby nature walks, as well as a therapist offering gum tree massages that you can get right outside the cabin. If you’ve got extra cash to splash, book a winery tour in a scenic helicopter.

Blackwood River Houseboats, Augusta
