"The Cowaravan": Basic caravan with kitchen suitable for the independent travellers on a budget: backpackers, surfers, hikers, itinerant workers. Bathroom and shower is inside the house. You will be expected to keep the guest bathroom (shared with other AirBnB guests), and the caravan clean. It is close to many vineyards for those wanting a home base while doing rural work elsewhere. 10 minutes drive to Margaret River, and the closest beach (Gracetown). No smoking, drugs, excessive drinking.
- Access the guest bathroom via the laundry (quietly if early in the morning!)
- Be prepared to have a beer with Gav at least once ;-)
My husband and I are living on land settled by his grandfather in 1932. Therefore, it is a very special place to us, and it's just one of the reasons we've named our property the "Margaret River Heartland".
We share our space with our five-year-old daughter, a golden retriever, 8 chooks, 1 bunny and a rooster, and 2 naughty peacocks. Sometimes the occasional WWOOFA is passing through also, meaning there'll always be a mixed bag at our place + many interesting stories to hear.
I'm an artist in my spare time, so with any luck you'll find some original pieces on the walls (if they don't sell first!)
We're not the types to watch much TV, but when we do we love the crime shows like Castle and Breaking Bad. You're far more likely to find us in the kitchen cooking up a storm, or on the deck watching the stars and sipping a brew.
Just to clarify... the guy in the photo is not my husband, (but in a parallel universe I'd certainly consider it LOL) -- Heston has an amazing brain and it was awesome to listen to him speak about the science of cooking at the 2013 Gourmet Escape. He reignited my passion for cooking, and exploring new ideas in the kitchen. For that my husband is grateful!
