I thought this location deserved 3.5 stars rather 4 stars that I ended up giving it... so I will start with the negative.
My biggest gripe is the state of the cleaning. The chairs on the balcony were a bit sticky, as was the table. The grill was not terribly well cleaned either. The sofa smelled of sweat.
This aside, I guess this apartment is as well equipped as such places are in Margaret river. We last stayed here in 2001 if I am correct.
The general cleanliness in the apartment was otherwise ok beyond the above. Bedrooms on ground floor and living area the floor up. It is getting cold and we found the heated bed pads... but needed to dig around to find the socket. It was almost as if they were hidden ... and hoping we won't find how to work the heat pad.
Location is convenient within Margaret river. Some restaurants & bakeries within walking distance. If you're doing the margaret river discovery tour, their pick-up point is 2min walk away at the Info centre.
Reception was friendly. No complaints.
p/s If you're planning to do a BBQ... the meats at the butcher just past the IGA supermarket are better.
