About this listing
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.
See more photos of Grasstree & the area on my Instagram page @grasstreebandb
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.
Cancel up to 5 days before your trip and get a full refund, including service fees.
From the South West of Western Australia.... Like trying new food, walking around new places, meeting new people....also like wine!
I have really enjoyed hosting guests through airbnb....you will find that I am pretty relaxed & keen to ensure you enjoy your stay at Grasstree & the beautiful area we live in.
