Perks for the Parents

This luxury, family-friendly fairy tale residence in the heart of the beautiful Margaret River region has its own koi pond, swimming pool, hot tub and huge loft playroom – both kids and adults will have a ball here. The majestic, grand estate is nestled near the ocean and between some of the region’s iconic wineries – parents can enjoy tasting sessions and tours. The residence sleeps up to 12 comfortably with 4 kingsize bedrooms and a children’s room where they can all have fun together with 2 king singles and 2 trundles. The estate is partnered with the Cape Lodge Restaurant nearby so parents can sneak away for a romantic dinner, leaving the children with a babysitter, knowing they are walking distance away.

Why Kids Love it

Dubbed ‘the castle’ by some of the pint-sized (smaller) guests here, this place has a number of quirks that give it an enchanting story book-feel. Outside there is the pool with shallow areas, a folly and pond and koi carp to feed. Inside, there’s an enormous, gated loft consisting of a TV / playroom room complete with Xbox and plenty of games, a ball pit and wooden train set for toddlers. The stand out feature is the wooden play kitchen, market and ‘Birdwood Café’, complete with tables and chairs for customers and its very own menu! There's a grassy area out front for ball games. The beaches and the ocean are not far away for days of surf and sand.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 3 nights. The property has a gated pool but an ungated farm dam and koi-filled pond where non-swimmers should be supervised. The house itself has 3 stories with the top loft fitted with a baby gate. An option of an infant pack containing baby essentials can be provided free of charge. It includes a crib, high chair, bath and thermometer, quality baby toiletries, steamer, sterilizer, bottle-drying rack, baby monitor, change mat, co-sleeper, cellular blanket, cutlery and a padded playmat. The Stables are the studio and workshop for the estate’s artist in residence, Alan Meyburgh. He offers private workshops and is a wealth of knowledge on the area.

About the Location

Birdwood Estate is located in Margaret River’s Golden Triangle in Western Australia. It’s an easy drive to nearby wineries and breweries, local beaches and shops. The area is a foodie delight with local producers selling everything from olives, nuts, cereals, jams, chocolates and cheese. Family activities include Sunflower Animal Farm, Yallingup (sheep) Shearing Shed and Mirravale Riding School. The more adventurous can try ba Bushtucker canoe and river tour. Beaches are plentiful and the picturesque Injidup Beach is just 15 minutes by car. Fly into Perth and hire a car (you’ll need one to get around). The drive to Birdwood Estate is just under 3 hours down the coast.

Style Notes

Old-world charm and contemporary luxury. This stately Queen Anne Federation residence with its very own turret is built of solid limestone and is full of its original character with distinctive features such as 4 open fireplaces, soaring ceilings, traditional bay windows and exposed beams salvaged from Westralia railway sleepers. Its newly furnished interior takes its inspiration from the rustic interiors of Soho Farmhouse in the English countryside. The beautiful bathrooms feature imported vanities for a relaxed, quintessentially Hamptons feel. We love the high-ceiling kitchen with wooden beams, a chandelier and oak table that manages to feel grand and rustic at the same time; the high quality linens and décor in the hotel-style bedrooms; and the surrounding natural beauty of tropical trees, birds and the occasional kangaroo.
