Property Description

A Grape Escape is a contemporary West Australian cottage set on 8 acres of trees and pasture half way between Margaret River townsite and the sea. Just off Caves Road, you are immersed in the Margaret River region's wineries, beaches, caves, forests and other attractions.

With no neighbours to be seen or heard and only a mob of local kangaroos to share the serenity, relax with a glass or two of local wine and a barbecue on the huge jarrah decked balcony and watch the sky change colour over the wonderful view to the coastal ridge. Or you may prefer to cook some of the fantastic fresh local produce in your well appointed kitchen.

The stylishly furnished lounge and entertaining areas are heated by a cosy woodheater in the cooler months and air conditioned in the warmer months. Two large bedrooms with comfortable queen size beds are very inviting.

A tasteful large bathroom with complimentary Vasse Virgin toiletries and laundry complete the cottage and lead you out to the surrounding garden where the birds are carrying out their enthusiastic conversations.

Pets welcome by arrangement, but for the comfort of future guests, must observe a few simple house rules. Rural ring lock fencing surrounds the house and will keep most size dogs happily contained whilst you are there. A secure pen is also provided should you need to leave your dog when you go out.

Overflow sofa bed in lounge available along with fold out single bed for children (Linen hire optional for these at extra cost).


This property allows pets by arrangement. Please see the terms and condtions for all details.

Our first stay here and we're already thinking of coming again. Beautiful house, very welcoming and very well equipped. The weather has been a bit chilly but the wood stove has kept us warm to the bone. Thank you for the hospitality. We'll be meeting again.

We had the most amazing stay here. It was so tranquil and peaceful and the best place for our two dogs to run around in the huge fenced yard. Everything you could want was supplied including lots of games. The fireplace was just the best on a winters night. Can't wait to come back!

Beautiful property, located just off Caves road and short drive to Prevelley Beach and Margaret River township. Wonderful deck for meals and bird and kangaroo watching. Peaceful, comfortable, well stocked kitchen, comfy beds.

March 2017
Perfect little house close to town and the beach, but feels nice and secluded with a massive backyard and lovely view. Pet friendly, the dog loved it. Really nice and clean :) also booked last minute (the day before) and no problems at all. Would definitely recommend.

My wife and I stayed for three nights in January at A-Grape-Escape with a friend from the UK to show her the Margaret River area.

The cottage was ideal for this. The location was very good and it was quiet. The cottage was very comfortable, the beds were good and it had a nice 'feel' to it. Our friend was very impressed with seeing kangaroos nearby.

We would recommend this place to others.

We have been there many times over the years, which is a testament to our experiences. In summary we see it as a perfect haven for 'getting away' without all the hassle of remembering to take this & take that as it is all there in situ. We love the ambiance & the proximity to the wineries and the beach but close enough to Margaret River to go shopping or a coffee perhaps returning with food for the BBQ.

Of course it would not be a holiday without our 2 dogs - they love the big verandah and the  many hide spots to sleep; in turn we like the fact that they are securely fenced in and if we are off site they have a secure dog house gives us peace of mind whilst away for a short period.

The house internally caters for all  tastes but is essentially Australiana with a focus on comfort and relaxation with enough games, novels & music/TV to keep you anchored to the house.

All in All a great house, great location for couples, families and pets to relax, communicate & de-stress. We will be back 2-3 times each year.

Hi. We had an amazing time at A Grape Escapse. Highly recommended!

August 2016
This was the second time we have stayed at the Grape Escape this year. Thoroughly enjoyed our 4 nights there. The weather was quite wet and stormy at times but we were cosy with the log fire to keep us warm. It is a great set up and our dog loves roo watching there from the deck. Cannot fault it.

August 2016
We have been staying at A Grape Escape for over seven years now and to be honest wouldn't stay anywhere else. The staff are very helpful and welcoming. Its always spotlessly clean and the log fire is very inviting with a glass of red on cold winter months. The lounge we find is very cosy with a great selection of books and DVDs to choose from. The beds  are very comfy and warm.  The view from the verandah of the kangaroos is unique to the grape escape.  The walks around the acreage are to be savoured and our old dog Bonny thinks it's her second home.

May 2016
Absolutely lovely house and dog had s great time. Thank you.

Stayed at the Grape Escape for 4 nights in May. Great location a short car ride into Margaret River town or to the coast. The cottage is well set up with everything that you could want. It is very comfortable and extremely cosy with the pot belly providing a real down south feel. Our retriever through he'd died and gone to heaven as he spent hours checking out the roos from the deck and garden. Will definitely be back.

March 2016
Absolutely wonderful.  The house is very well appointed and comfortable.  Most enjoyable to be sitting out on the verandah of an evening watching the kangaroos and listening to the bird life.  I would definitely revisit.

October 2015
The ease of booking combined such a homely house makes it feel like the place is your own holiday home
Will definitely tell friends and also be back. Our little cavalier loved it

September 2015
We absolutely loved our stay at "A Grape Escape". The house was everything you want in a holiday house (clean, comfortable, good kitchen / bathroom, fire) but the extra touches made all the difference. The bed and linen was resort quality! Firewood at the tip of our fingers was a bonus. And we loved seeing the abundance of kangaroos from the porch. Not to mention a perfect location! We will definitely be back. Thank you :)

August 2015
We had such a wonderful relaxing time. We found ourselves spending so much time at the house, we barely went anywhere else! Our little dog loved being able to run around - we'll definitely be back!

August 2015
Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Grape Escape.
Property was lovely. Our dog loved the outdoors aswell.
Great spot to head to Prevelley and into Marg River.
We did quite a bit of Moutain Biking, the weather wasn't very good.
But thoroughly enjoyed coming home to the warm fire

August 2015
A beautiful house in wonderful surroundings. Very well appointed with everything you need. We had a really lovely time and we'll definitely be back!

August 2015
What a beautiful little place set amongst grassed paddocks and tall trees. Cosy interior, beautiful bedrooms and spacious outdoor area. We found the place simply inviting and will be back. Also loved the fact that we could take our beloved dog that just loved the place.

We will certainly be back to stay again

My husband and I along with our 'fur family' of two had a very relaxing and enjoyable stay at A Grape Escape.  The property was clean, well appointed, secure for our two dogs and private from neighbouring properties.  It is idea for two couples or a family with 4 children.  We particularly loves waking up to the many kangaroos feeding the in paddocks just outside the property.  We staying during the winter and the wood fire burnt non-stop for the entire time we were there making the house cosy and warm. We would thoroughly recommend the property that is about 10 minutes from Margaret River.  We plan to book again to enjoy this lovely property.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at A Grape Escape.
It was secluded and private yet close to everything Margaret River has to offer.
The home was warm and cosy and offered all the comforts of home and was very well appointed.
The deck was ideal for relaxing, dining ... Kangaroo watching!
Superb location for dogs with a well fenced yard .. And afore mentioned kangaroos proving much amusement for pooch.
This accommodation was perfect for us and will be our first choice for next visit back to Margs.

It was also well managed through House Down South, providing a hassle free booking service.

May 2015
We can highly recommend The Grape Escape, the house is well equipped and the grounds are fabulous, having a dog friendly place to stay was very much appreciated. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone. The whole experience was great. We will defiantly be back for sure. Thank you very much for letting us stay in your house.
Yours sincerely

Great location, peaceful and quiet but close to Margaret River town centre and easy access to other sites in the area. We loved our stay so much here that we have already booked a return visit. This would be a perfect place to stay in the summer or winter. Tiffany

Tis is one of the best dog friendly accomodation we have stayed in. The house is well appointed and beautifully designed. Our dogs loved sitting on the deck watching the kangaroos. We have recommended this house to our family and freinds and we would love to come back this year in winter to use the wood fire.

December 2014
Loved the secluded, rural feel of A Grape Escape, with the filtered light through the tall trees, the kangaroos and heaps of birds. And the house is within a good walk to Prevelly and a longer (but easy) walk to Margaret River.

The house is very comfortable and well appointed. We tended to gravitate to the huge veranda to watch our dog wear himself out in the big native gardens.

Justine at House Down South was very helpful and came back to us very quickly when we made enquiries about A Grape Escape.

I think we will be back!

November 2014
That was my second time at the house. I loved every minute of it. I'd recommend it to all my friends and family. I can't think of anyway you could improve on it really. I will definitely be coming back soon. Thanks for making it so welcoming and enjoyable.
Cheers and all the best for the busy season ahead.

October 2014
Very enjoyable and relaxing stay. House is very well appointed with everything you could possibly need. Will definitely consider booking again.

August 2014
We had a lovely stay in a grape escape, just relaxing, bird watching and cosying by the log fire with a glass of red was just bliss. We will definatly be returning and looking forward to another lovely time.

August 2014
Love the house!  The location is very convienient, close to everything you will ever need, particularly to Prevelly Beach for our dog and the wineries along Caves Road for us.  The house is very clean, well designed and welcoming.  We really feel like home and it's hard to leave.  We will definitely go back soon.

July 2014
We had a great time at the Grape Escape and could not fault the place. It was good to have the cooking facilities and sitting room.  A really good choice!!

June 2014
Really beautiful.
A gorgeous cabin on a private gorgeous and lush area.  
Quiet but only a very short drive to the town centre and well placed as a starting point to venture around to Augusta.
Even our spoilt labrador loved it!
We will definitely be visiting again.

Just returned from a great 5 day stay. The house was perfect. We enjoyed watching the kangaroos grazing in the mornings and evenings and they fascinated our dog! Thanks, Nick

November 2013
The Grape Escape was a wonerdful place to stay. It was so peaceful and relaxing. It was perfect for our girls holiday away that I booked for a persent for my mum's 60th. It's so close to everything but you feel like you are in the middle of no where, with no one else around for miles. It was such a beautiful place to stay. It has everything you need and more. All the little touches, make the stay even more enjoyable! The local's are very friendly (Kangaroo's I mean) and the property is surrounded by stunning native plants. It was so lovely to walk around and enjoy.  Highly recommend The Grape Escape to anyone looking at a wonderful Holiday or relaxing weekend away! Its truly an amazing place to stay. Thank you so much once again. We will back for sure!
