We were one of 2 families sharing the 4 bed beach front villa called Catalpa.
It's in a great location, right on the beach, walkable to the local town, and easily accessible to all the main attractions in Margaret River.
The managers on site were very friendly and helpful, they recommended a winery to us which wasn't even on our list and ended up being our favourite.
The villa itself is very spacious, has all the facilities you'd expect and is in very good condition.
To be balanced- my (slight) criticism would be that there were very few coat hangers, and the pillows weren't that comfortable - however this really was a minor issue, and compared to all the positives about this place, including washing machines, DVD players, stereo system etc. it in no way detracts from 5 stars.
Some additional nice touches, that shifted the villa from being good to great was that there was wood paper etc. for evening log fires, and on our final day when the BBQ gas ran out, it was replaced free of charge, no questions asked.
Overall I'd recommend this villa highly to anyone visiting this beautiful part of the world, we'll be going back.

Thanks for a great review. We have taken on board your (slight) criticism and have now put in new pillows as well as additional coat hangers.
We are also pleased that our winery recommendation came up as a favorite. It would be great if we (Managers) could sample all of the food and wine at the many wineries in Margaret River on offer but with so many it is impossible - we also rely on our guests to let us know what is their favourite!
We are getting a lot of visitors from Singapore so please....spread the word!!
Hopefully, you will get the opportunity to return again to this special part of the world.

We stayed for 3 nights at the Halcyon villa, a four bedroom luxury villa right on the beach front with the most amazing view overlooking coastline. The villa itself was immaculately clean and decorated to the highest of standards. It was well equipped with everything and more you could need in the kitchen. All the bedrooms were very comfortable with good quality linen and plenty of storage space. Bathroom and showers were excellent as were the towels. Although we did not use them there was a washing machine and tumble dryer available. The villa is open plan, however there is the possibility to close off a small section for some quiet time if needed. There was also a loft area which could be used but the stairs may be a little too steep for very young children, but there was a gate at the bottom of the steps, but I cannot remember if this had a lock or not. The outside area had a large table and chairs, perfect for that evening meal, just beware of the kamikazee beetles and the flies were a bit of a nuisance but not enough to put you off sitting and enjoying the scenery. The location on the beach front is fantastic and you ever got tired of the beach there is the grass area in front of the villa to utilise. The beach is very family friendly and the water in Oct was warm, clear and shallow, perfect for adults and children. This was a treat for us having come over from the UK however I would have no hesitation in recommending this to everyone and am already looking to return, unfortunately not until Nov 2014 when my niece gets married. Thank you for a lovely stay.

Room Tip: Halcyon villa, has four bedrooms, big enough easily for two families or even four couples.

Thank you for your very kind words. It is a piece of paradise here at Whalers Cove and just a pity you only had 3 nights!
We look forward to catching up again in November 2014!

Villa Neptune lived up to the photos. The view from the kitchen, lounge and balcony was fantastic - whales, pelicans, locals walking their dogs - and the neighbouring villas tucked out of sight. One of the cleanest places I have stayed in, and the furnishings felt fresh and well-cared for. Perfect family spot because there is only a bike path between you and the beach. You can also walk into town easily. Not cheap, but you didn't feel cheated either.

Past Mandurah, past Bunbury, past Busselton, heading for Cape Naturaliste, we found these gorgeous villas. Expensive for us Kiwis at $260/night, but spacious and comfy, and just off the beach. Many places will only do a minimum two nights stay which didn't suit our plans, so we were pleased to find this villa. The lady manager was friendly and interesting to talk to.

Room Tip: Ours was called 'William Tell'

Thank you for your great feedback. We have 18 villas in our letting pool and we are able to use a couple of the 2 bedroom villas for 1 night accommodation stays - especially useful for walk-in guests such as yourselves from another country.
We are glad you enjoyed the stay - just a pity it wasn't longer!!

8 of us stayed at Villa Halcyon for an extended weekend. The villa is absolute beachfront with the most magnificent views of Geograph Bay. It is walking distance to all the cafe's and shops. The villa is massive with plenty of room for 8 people. The bedrooms are spacious and well equipped with loads of hanging space. The kitchen is to die for and had everything we needed. The staff were very welcoming and even came down to help take our group photos before our "girls lunch". Loved the place and will definitely be back.
