BeneTae studio is a 10 minute drive from Dunsborough, situated on a large rural property offering complete seclusion, surrounded by bush. Our owner-built, self-contained Studio, made from recycled materials, is adjacent to our house, with its own entrance. It is a welcoming bush retreat with tranquillity and space to explore the property. We are also situated within easy access to all the Margaret River attractions.

The space

This two storey studio is an ideal summer and winter retreat. The main room is fully equipped with kitchen, dining and sitting areas and pleasantly cool in summer. Upstairs bedroom, with queen bed, overlooks the orchard and vegetable garden. It can get hot in summer but cools down with the southern breeze at night. Fans are supplied and downstairs we have an extra bed and sofa-bed for those warm days. During winter the living area has a slow combustion wood heater with a flue which also keeps the bedroom warm. The bathroom is downstairs has a shower over the bath. There is a bricked veranda and BBQ area outside overlooking the bush garden.

Guest access

The road access is about 500 meters from the street. Plenty of parking.
Guests have access to bush walks where they can explore the various orchids and wild flowers when in season and encounter numerous kangaroos
within the confines of the property. Happy to supply a mud map in case in case anyone feels they may get lost.

Interaction with guests

We are happy to point our guests in the right direction should they require help in planning their daily outings or require information about the area.
There is a Tourist Guide to browse, and it is well worth reading the guests' comments in the Visitors book.

Very cosy and quiet cottage in a lovely bushland setting, not far from the heart of Dunsborough. Perfect base for exploring. Loved the wood fire and board games and very accommodating hosts! Thank you for having us.

Beautiful cute studio in bush setting, open fire and wildlife galore... Marshall and Gill are hugely interesting hosts. They were very respectful of personal space and yet made themselves available to share little gems of their lives and their home!!!

A hidden gem! A beautiful studio, and the location is secluded yet close to all amenities. Marshall & Gill are very friendly, hospitable as well as knowledgable hosts. We are looking forward to visiting again soon.

Marshall & Gill's self contained studio was beautiful! It is warm & welcoming, with the fire heating both upstairs & downstairs. The upstairs bed was extremely comfortable, & bringing our own linens made us feel completely relaxed & at home. Though it has a rustic feel, having been built by Marshall & Gill themselves, the kitchen & bathroom have all the amenities you could possibly need. We out ate during our stay, but we would have been able to cook up a meal easily. The hot water in the shower/bath is almost instantaneous & everything worked a treat. In terms of location, Dunsborough is maximum a 10 minute drive, & we also explored Busselton, Yallingup, & most of the coast line. You're close enough to see & do any South West sightseeing you like, but the property is also secluded enough that at night you can only here the trees & crickets. I'm already dreaming of our next stay at BeneTae! Upon arrival Marshall greeted us & gave us some tips on getting in & out of the property & into town, & helped us get the fire going. Throughout our stay we also met Gill & Soapie, & Gill brought us some fresh apples from their orchard! If you have the chance while on your visit it was so wonderful to chat with both Gill & Marshall, they're both so inviting & intelligent

This was one of the best airbnb'we have ever stayed at. There was everything we could possibly need in the cottage, the Woodford kept the whole house super warm, the bath/spa was gloriously deep and relaxing, and the walking trails on their property were stunning. They are such a lovely couple who were extremely accommodating. My husband and I needed a 4 day get away from the city and got exactly that and more. Will definitely be heading back to this gem!

Marshall and Gill are gracious hosts, there to answer your questions and share a cup of tea. The place is clean and spacious. Marshall even chopped wood and lit the fire in anticipation of my arrival...and again the next morning. I highly recommend this place.

Quiet, bush setting. Great place to unwind from a busy lifestyle. Conveniently located to explore the cape. Marshall and Gill are lovely and very hospitable hosts.

We are a retired couple, who have never been working harder, managing our large rural property, recycled owner buildings and gardens. We (and our Maltese Terrier, Sopi) welcome you to share this tranquil bush setting. We have been renting this bush studio adjacent our home for over 20 years, and thoroughly enjoyed hosting many guests over this period. We are new to Airbnb in 2017.
