Fantastic holiday accomodation located in a quiet street. The kitchen has everything possible in it. Very clean. Loved the fire and foxtel during those rainy moments.

“Clean, Comfortable & Welcoming Host”
Reviewed 29 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Stayed in this property for one night with family while travelling to Albany. The house is excellent, clean , comfortable and above all Kathy was a wonderful host. Wished we could have stayed longer. Everything was perfect in the house with a beautiful surrounding.

“We didn't want to leave!”
Reviewed 15 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Kathy and Don are incredible hosts who made us feel right at home right from the very moment we stepped into the house. They have provided everything you could ever dream of in a house - the kitchen alone was more well-equipped than our own! The fridge was stocked with eggs from their chooks as well as local fresh milk and wine, and luxurious fireplace was also well-stocked and ready to go. We enjoyed wandering around their beautiful garden and feeding the mob of very friendly kookaburras who frequent the house in the evening. Marri House is spacious, comfortable and stylish, and we found it a very easy base from which to travel and sight-see around Pemberton. We only wish we could have stayed longer!

“Fantastic accommodation ”
Reviewed 7 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Incredible accommodation in a beautiful part of the world. We enjoyed a quiet and relaxing two nights at Marri house. Kath was an incredible host and showed us around her lovely property and introduced our daughter to her chooks. We enjoyed fresh eggs for breakfast each morning and we were welcomed to house with a lovely layout of fresh fruit and delicious white wine. Kath was excellent and we are so grateful for all her help and emails

“Excellence in a Rural Surrounding”
Reviewed 20 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

First, thanks to our hosts Kathy and Don for their loving care and information. The welcoming fruit platter, local milk and eggs were most delicious. Our guests from Switzerland just could not get over the fact, that this was a holiday home! There is not one thing missing in the kitchen, even if you were a MKR-chef! The interior design is harmonious and very stylish, so are the bedrooms. We could have stayed for another 10 weeks or so. Kathy and Don give our love to the Kookaburras and the hens.

“Garden of Eden, chooks and kookaburras”
Reviewed 25 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Marri House is a magical vacation spot. Beautifully appointed (Marri wood dining table, skylight in the back bedroom, Nespresso machine), it is a place to relax in style.
We were welcomed with fresh eggs from the "girls", a bottle of local wine, and the most wonderful cornucopia on a platter of fresh fruit, much of which was grown by our lovely hosts, Kath and Don in their veritable Garden of Eden. They live in the cottage next door and are generous, unobtrusive hosts. They have heaps of tips about exploring the local area and are also very well read about the local flora and fauna. Indeed, the bird life is wonderful, as are the characters of the kookaburras who come to be handfed in the afternoons.
The accommodation itself is lovely. The living area opens onto an outside dining/sitting area that is surrounded by the garden: a lovely place to chat, sip and eat. The three bedrooms are well suited for groups of friends or family. And the kitchen is really well-appointed.
Marri House is a perfect base to explore the beauties of Pemberton and surrounds. We will be back!

“Home away from Home”
Reviewed 8 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

After a few nights at Marri House we didn't want to leave!
The house is aesthetically gorgeous, with modern furnishings, well-laid out living spaces both indoor and outdoor, excellently-equiped kitchen, and a native garden beyond the veranda. Stylish and so comfortable, with a peaceful corner to be found for for each guest.

The location is perfect, with forest in all directions, and the Gloucester Tree a short walk away. Kathy and Don are generous and wonderful hosts, friendly and helpful in every way. Our every need was met, and they had terrific recommendations for sightseeing in this beautiful region.

Hope to return again soon!
