Grasstree b+b (or bring you own breakfast- please see below) is charming, cute & comfortable. A separate building adjacent to our home, set in a quiet open bush land property, amongst tall eucalyptus trees and the wonderful grasstrees. A perfect place to relax and unwind.

The space

Grasstree b+b is a self catering bed & breakfast....or you can choose to bring your own breakfast or eat out at a nearby cafe.

*After a year or two on airbnb, most people choose not to have breakfast provided so I have decided to make the default price WITHOUT BREAKFAST which may seem strange but it makes the booking process for my guests much easier. So if you would like breakfast, please enquire before you make a reservation request and I can alter the price for you. I can provide you with a continental breakfast for an extra $30 per couple per night. Alternatively, you can pay for breakfast either direct deposit or cash when you arrive.


The same if you have children. Please simply enquire before you make a reservation request- otherwise airbnb will charge $30 per child. The system only allows me to enter one rate, sorry. I can either update price through airbnb or we can sort it out when you arrive, as above.

Though Grasstree is not big, it is cosy and the decor is warm & instantly inviting, with a retro feel. Not everyone connects with "luxury"...instead we offer warmth & personality! We purpose built the Grasstree building to live in for 18 months while our house was being built. The exterior area you see in the photos is our shed of which Grasstree is part of. But please don't let that put you off! It is properly built with insulation etc, separated by an internal wall- you won't be disturbed by shed happenings! It really is a little home and very livable! Our house is a few metres away but we have created quite a private area for you, screened off by native shrubs.

Though probably best suited for couples if you don't mind sharing a bathroom and being a little cosy in the living area, two couples or a small family are very welcome also.
Please enquire about your dog also as we are quite happy to host well-adjusted dogs!

Downstairs is an open living kitchen area, queen bedroom & bathroom. On the upstairs mezzanine level, a queen & single bed. Though no oven there is an electric hotplate & other appliances and a Weber Q BBQ. If you choose the breakfast option you will be provided with quality & local produce where ever possible. (Eggs from our happy chickens and perhaps seasonal veges from our garden).

I have tried my best to extend wifi from my house into Grasstree, with some success at last! You can pick up the signal outside but unfortunately not inside.

You can watch kangaroos & bird life from your pretty outdoor patio area while enjoying a wonderful Margaret River wine.
Set in a semi rural bush environment you will have access to nature- very starry skies, beautiful bush walks, open space.

We live in a simply beautiful area. But the entire Cape to Cape area is. It is blessed with a varied, stunning coastline, lovely climate, truly wonderful food & wine, caves, forests.... There is a lot to see, do & taste.

Grasstree b+b is five kilometres from the pretty beachside town of Dunsborough & the calm waters of Geographe Bay, ten kilometres from Yallingup surf beach & just a little further to the acclaimed Margaret River wine region with it's many wineries & restaurants. (In fact most of the best wineries are situated half way between Dunsbourough and Margaret River townsite). We are situated in a great spot to explore the entire area.

Please note- Two night minimum.

Long Weekends, Christmas/ January holidays and Easter three night minimum stay & 10% extra

Thank you & look forward to meeting you!

Interaction with guests

I like to treat people as I expect to be treated. Very happy to help with recommendations, happy to chat when the opportunity arises but your privacy will be respected.
As we do live on site you may see us hanging out washing or pottering around in the garden or other homely duties!

Other things to note

It is very likely you will see kangaroos while sipping on your Margaret wine in the late afternoon. And beautiful Splendid Blue Wrens...

We really want to to have a wonderful stay and we respectfully ask you to treat Grasstree with care.
During your stay, while not in the building, please turn off all lights, air-con, & appliances.
On leaving please leave tidy with your dishes washed and put away, bins emptied, light & air-con off & WeberQ BBQ clean.
Please don't concern yourselves with making the beds though.
Wonderful, thank you!

If you are bringing your dog please be advised that there is no fencing around our property. We do have a fenced off area for own our dogs and will certainly consider your dogs joining ours, should you want to go out without your dog, if we all agree there will be no socialisation issues!
With kangaroos around in the evening & night your dogs will need to be watched. A common sense approach to dogs inside.
Look out for our friendly pet dogs on the driveway. They may be initially curious but won't bother you too much. (Though due to the fact that 'Archie' is so very sociable & guests tend to adore him- he will invite himself inside without encouragement. Please be stern with him if this is not what you want. He won't take it personally)!
If you are driving in the area at night, please drive slowly and look out for kangaroos.

Great rural location with lovely walks surrounding the property. Nicely decorated with interesting nic nacs. Trudy and Tim were very welcoming, accomodating and friendly. They went above and beyond by having our dog in their yard whilst we were at lunch.

Grasstree B&B is a lovely two storey Cottage filled with all the comforts of home. If feels so secluded and yet you are only 10 minutes away from the lovely township of Dunsborough where everyone is just so friendly. We look forward to our next visit.

A cosy little haven in the centre of a gorgeous part of Quindalup. I did not feel like we were next to someone's house! It was peaceful and very relaxing, with great walk trails and a cosy fire to come back to. Trudy has a fabulous eye for decorating and we spent half our time at Grasstree admiring the many little treasures about the place. A nice central spot to visit wineries and restaurants. Would definitely visit again.

This is such a cute place. We stayed here with three people. A couple in the downstairs bedroom, then there is an open loft for extra guests. It's a small place but had everything we needed and was perfect for what we wanted. Good location, easy to go into town for forgotten milk, but has the southwest feel with plenty of space, kangaroos and beautiful trees. Also it's out of town in the direction of all the great wineries which is handy :) Nice little outdoor area for wine and cheese at sunset or a BBQ later on. Trudy lives right next door and respectfully came to say hello and offer assistance when we arrived. Her husband came over in the morning and helped us plan some of our activities for the day. They made our stay very comfortable and easy. Would highly recommend.

We were delighted about our stay with Trudy and Tim. The studio is modern, very spacious (plenty of space for our family of five for three nights), impeccably clean, comfortable, and with views of the beautifully manicured yard from every window. It offers good privacy in spite of being directly adjacent to Trudy and Tim's house. The kitchen is small but well equipped; we enjoyed preparing and eating several meals at home. Our three young children loved feeding the chickens and playing explorer games in the yard, and we all enjoyed a couple of walks in the nice, quiet, neighbourhood. Trudy and Tim were very welcoming as well as being helpful with suggestions on what to do in the area. The studio is a 5-25 min drive from "everything". We found the location to be ideal to explore the greater Yallingup area. We would recommend Trudy and Tim's place with no hesitation!

We had such a lovely family time at this place! Loved the location (10 min from Dunsborough). Loved my morning walk in the bush. Loved the vintage feeling of the place. Loved the comfort. Loved all the books, DVDs and the outdoor area. Spent so much time playing the fantastic game finska... Will definitively recommend this place to anyone.
