About Tony Terry

I was born in Margaret River being descended from the first settlers in the district, Alfred and Ellen Bussell. I am a former high school Principal who lives in Perth but have had an ongoing close affinity with Margaret River.

Our 3 children and six grand children are proud of their Margaret River heritage and just love visiting such a very special beach house.

Tony Terry purchased this house in 1998

Why Tony Terry chose Gracetown

I was born in Margaret River being descended from the first settlers in Margaret River, Alfred and Ellen Bussell. Historical photos including the Grace Bussell horseback rescue of the "Georgette' survivors adorn the walls of this

amazing property.

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with this property due to its great views over a beautiful bay, closeness to the sea together with its exceptional facilities.

It has been wonderful to share the Marmaduke experience with others and to find so many of our visitors also fall in love with our beach house.

Great property with everything supplied

  • 5 of 5

A visit with family and found there was enough beds for everyone comfortably. Loved the patchwork quilts throughout the home. Having a well stocked pantry was a big bonus which made the catering very enjoyable. Enjoyed sitting on the deck for breakfast and dinner. Would definitely return.

Wonderful Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved our stay at Marmaduke House. The owner was a pleasure to communicate with. The house was a real home away from home with everything you could possibly need; even down to a beautifully crafted hand made quilt on each bed. The facilities the property offered were excellent; we played pool, ping pong, basket ball, watched Foxtel and DVD movies, read 2 novels, played cards and board games and watched a pod of whales frolicking in the ocean through the telescope on the balcony off the master bedroom!

Relax property at a quiet town.

  • 5 of 5

The place is superb in a quiet town. We are enjoying the stay in this house. There are many facilities inside the house: one pool table, basketball court, table tennis table, and BBQ pit. At night you can look up to the sky and see all stars around you. Definitely will come back again.

Brilliant property!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had the most perfect week - it had every comfort we could hope for, the location was beautiful, the hosts were lovely and answered all our questions beforehand, changed our booking when we needed to swap days and even rang to make sure we had a good time. The kitchen is stunning and I was able to cook as if I was at home, loved the DVD library and the balcony with the gorgeous sunset views. We went with two teenagers and they both took a private wing to escape to. Honestly could not rate this house any higher!
