About the property

Location and local Attractions

Located in Augusta, just 100 metres from Jay's Beach with great views of the Southern Ocean and the mouth of the Blackwood River. Close to the Margaret River Wine region, and the south west forests.

Watch whales and dolphins from the veranda. Surf and child friendly beaches nearby. Leeuwin Lighthouse. Great fishing or boating on the river or ocean. Wineries, caves and all the attractions of Margaret River close by.

What to expect

Chaudiere Beach House is a family holiday home, furnished for casual comfort while still being stylish and attractive. It sits on an elevated bushy block with magnificent views over Flinders Bay and the mouth of the Blackwood River. Its peaceful and tranquil location is only a few minutes walk to the ocean, river, fishing spots and local café.

The accommodation consists of an upstairs house and a downstairs flat. The house and flat are completely separate and self-contained, but are never rented separately. Groups of up to eight are accommodated in the house while larger groups are also given access to the flat.

There are two driveways (one to the house and one to the flat), which provide plenty of parking and easy access, including for elderly people. However, the external stairs linking the two are quite steep, and care should be taken by groups with young children or frail, elderly people.

We cannot accommodate vehicles with excessively high clearances and the driveways are not suitable for anything more than small dinghies. However, there is an area at the bottom of the street where larger vehicles can be parked.

The upstairs house has a comfortable living room with a flat screen television and a separate dining room with a reverse cycle air conditioner. There is a well-equipped kitchen with a dishwasher, induction cooktop, electric oven and microwave. Tea towels are supplied. There are four bedrooms that sleep up to 8 people and two bathrooms (including one ensuite). The main bedroom has a queen bed Two of the bedrooms have twin single beds, the fourth (a converted sunroom) has a double bed. The beds will be made prior to your arrival. Each bed has a feather doona and a lighter cover. We also supply one bath towel per person.

The downstairs flat has a living/dining room with a television and a kitchen with a electric stove. There are two adjoining bedrooms that can accommodate up to four people. (The main bedroom can be accessed externally through sliding doors, or via the second bedroom). The main bedroom has a queen bed. The second bedroom has one set of bunk beds. The downstairs beds also have feather doonas and light covers and we supply one bath towel per person. There is also a bathroom.

The house is inspected and cleaned after each rental. However, its proximity to the ocean and the bushy nature of the yard mean we cannot guarantee sparkling windows and the occasional spider or small lizard may wander into the house.

Please be sure not to leave food out as this may attract ants.

We are always happy to adjust the rent appropriately in the case of genuine problems provided we are informed of these matters in a timely manner so that we can arrange to have them rectified as soon as possible. Refunds will not generally be given if we are not advised of problems until after your stay is completed.

Cancellations and changes in numbers

The deposit is not refundable. The balance is refundable for bookings cancelled 28 days before your stay.

If the number of guests increases you must let us know at least 5 days before your stay and we will amend your booking.

If we are notified of the reduced number at least 28 days before your stay we will adjust the rent and refund any excess. However, there will be no refund if the number of guests is reduced less than 28 days before you stay.

Great views & very spacious

  • 5 of 5

We had a family of 9 people from Brisbane staying here for 3 days, and it was wonderful. The sunrises and water views were lovely, with plenty of space inside and out for us all to enjoy. The beds were comfy, the doona's warm, and everything was very clean. It felt very homely and comfortable with big dining tables (inside & out), big lounge area. Nice walks down to beach (100 metres away) and the river mouth and esplanade (300 metres away) with lots of dolphins, sting rays and pelicans. Loved our stay here, and would love to stay again one day. Would thoroughly recommend larger groups staying here.

A Relaxing Place to Hang Out

  • 4 of 5

Stayed here in mid August with family from the USA - 9 of us in all including little kids. We loved that we could come back after a long day touring the Margaret River region to a comfortable home with all the facilities that you could want - nice linens, generally comfortable beds, a living room couch so comfortable you could sleep on it. The living area was a nice place to congregate and spend evening family time together. The view was phenomenal. And taking evening strolls was easy with the beach a stone's throw away.

Lovely spot for a winter stay

  • 4 of 5

We had a great mixed family holiday in Augusta last September. It is a great place to stay with lots to do within easy drive including walks in the Boyanup forest and caving, vineyards, beer/ciderys and food glorious food. The house was ample, welcoming and fitted the needs of a changing group very well, including two toddlers. We had many changes as various family members arrived and left but we coped with the granny flat down stairs for the come and goes and more permanent sleepers upstairs. Yes some of the fixtures are a bit tired but it is a holiday/beach house and fulfills its purpose very well. A bit of a trim for the view and all good.
