We cannot get over how cute this Margaret River cottage stay is. Just picture long, lazy afternoons drinking your Margaret river spoils under the vine-clad patio, picking veggies from the garden and playing lawn games on the sprawling grass. Followed up by cosy nights on the couch with a few board games or stargazing around the outdoor fire. Need we say more? Book here.
This quaint three bedroom cottage is located between Margaret River's pristine beaches and all the goodies in town, so it's the perfect spot for exploring the region. We're big fans of the potbelly fire and laidback decor inside—just think: coastal cool meets Australiana—but the real hero here is the gorgeous deck that looks out across the two and half acre property. Throw on vinos and a cheeseboard, and you're done. Book here.
Berms And Barrels
If you're coming to Margs more for the adventure rather than wine, this sleek, minimal three bedroom home has been designed just for you. There's loads of parking space, a garage to park your surfboards and/or mountain bikes and an outdoor shower that'll go down a treat after a day on the surf. It's also super close to the main strip so yes, you can still make it to Margaret River Brewhouse in time for some sundowner pints and a bowl of chippies after a day out exploring. Book here.
From one great to deck to another. Bella Retreat's beautiful outdoor patio is surrounded by 13 acres of jarrah and redgum trees, so it very much feels like you're hidden deep in the forest here. In reality, you're actually only a short drive from award-winning wineries like Xanadu, Voyager and Leeuwin Estate, five minutes from town and ten minutes from the beach. How convenient. Book here.
This architecturally designed two bedroom apartment is the ultimate Margaret River small stay. Kitted out with local timber, polished concrete floors, lush indoor plants and loads of natural light, the unique 60m2 home is big on coastal vibes and just a short drive from everything in Margs. With one queen bed and a single bed (with extra floor mattress), we reckon this is a great one for young families or maybe just a couples getaway with that one friend who always seems to third wheel. Book here.
It's all about the dreamy sunset views here at Kanangra—a modern, solar-passive retreat with jaw-dropping vistas north of the Margaret River Valley and Naturaliste National Park.

Mr Smith's Straw Bale Cottage
Chasing a couples retreat with character? Mr Smith's Straw Bale Cottage will tick all the boxes. The vibe is artistic, light and inviting with a plush blue velvet couch to curl up on and private garden to soak up some vinos in the sunshine. The owners live next door, so keep an eye out for their friendly English staffy, Annie—she's figured out she can score some extra cuddles if she comes down to visit guests. Book here.
