“Great base for SW Western Australian holiday”
Reviewed March 10, 2018 for a stay in February 2018

Markingle is a very comfortable, well looked-after 1970s-style house at Geographe, north of Busselton, which makes a great base to explore the south-west of Western Australia. We were four adults staying in the house and we had plenty of room. One bedroom has bed that is more child size, but we had a small person who used it in comfort. There was a sea breeze every day, so we kept cool in the evenings when we came home. The back verandah is a lovely place to sit and debrief on the day (or have a BBQ). The kitchen and dining area are large and there's all you need to cook meals. The local IGA and bottle shop and petrol station are a couple of blocks away. For coffees, Sensations Cafe at Geographe is 15 minutes walk or 5 mins by car.
The beach is one block away but you might also want to walk along the foreshore shared pedestrian and cycle way that goes all the way into Busselton, about 4 km. The local area is very pleasant for walks in the morning or afternoon. And it's very quiet: Basically, a suburban setting just back from the beach.
We spend one day exploring Busselton and then day trips down to Margaret River, about an hour's drive, and on to Augusta and other interesting places. Markingle was a fantastic base to come back to each day.
Thanks for a very relaxing holiday!

Reviewed December 29, 2016 for a stay in December 2016

Markingle is by far one the most homely and well fit out property we have come across, especially with internet and WiFi access.

It's not modern or new but it was an actual family home until 2012 and not built as a holiday let. The kitchen and bathrooms were well stocked.

The extensive collection of books, DVDs, board and card games kept the young and old entertained.

During our stay in late December, the weather was unusually mild - nothing over 24 degree c. I wondered how the property would fair with only an air conditioner in the kitchen dinning.

Management Response

We are delighted that Caroline and her family enjoyed sharing our holiday home and would love to welcome them back one day.

As the house is just one block from the beach and evening sea breezes are the norm in Busselton we have found that the fans (and heaters for winter) provided in the bedrooms are more than adequate for a very comfortable stay.
Happy New Year.
