Why Marilyn Van Beek chose Busselton

After spending many holidays in the Margaret River/Busselton region we decided to have a 'sea change' from the hills area of Perth . We discovered the Piano Box one Easter while holidaying in the area. Both my husband & myself fell in love with the Old Broadwater Farm Estate and the Piano Box & now love the whole region which offers many activities for everyone at any age!

What makes this house unique

The Piano Box is an architecturally designed home with quality furnishings and stylish decor with all the comforts of home. From the front patio witness the beautiful sunsets and cool summer breezes with a glass of wine! Enjoy the easy access to beaches, untouched forests, galleries, wineries and the many sporting activities of the Margaret River/Busselton region.

Fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our few days here. The house is clean, stocked with everything you could need and a short drive from the beach and town centre. There is a park around the corner for those with little ones like us. We came to Busselton for a wedding at Old Broadwater Farm. The house is about 50m from the entrance - perfect location!

Thanks Marilyn! :)

Comfortable & Convenient

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable home away from home, with everything you might need for your stay, including plenty of room to spread out. Terrific location if you have a family wedding at the beautiful Old Broadwater Farm as it's only a short walk. A distance from shops, beach and jetty, so you do need a vehicle.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments Dee. We are fortunate to have the Old Broadwater Farm 5 mins away thus we accommodate many wedding guests.
