The FarAway House - holiday home in quiet rural location near wineries and walks

Adults-only holiday home in Frankland River
When you book to stay at The Faraway House you will have the whole house to yourself. Let yourself in with the key in the lockbox. It has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and an open plan kitchen, dining and lounge. There is also a craft or writing room for those looking for a creative getaway! There are no hidden costs - all cleaning costs are included in the night rate.

The house is beautifully appointed with quality furnishings and mattresses. Those who love to cook will love the large country kitchen stove and the kitchen is set up for baking with a mixmaster, cake tins and trays. There is a slow cooker and microwave and all the cookware you will need, including a wok. There are bedside lamps provided next to each bed with a USB port for convenient charging of your phone.

For the coffee lovers there is a coffee plunger and a Turkish percolator for on the stove. Bring your favourite grounds and enjoy a morning coffee on the verandah. Tea lovers are catered for too with a teapot available and have a look in the buffet for the pretty china teacups. Instant coffee, tea, sugar and milk is provided.

The Faraway House is the perfect escape destination. Due to being in a remote location, WiFi is not available. There is Telstra 4G reception in the house, however Optus is not reliable but will connect to the SOS service. The television has a satellite connection and there is also a DVD player with a selection of DVDs. Enjoy some technology free time and enjoy playing cards or board games or do a jigsaw puzzle.

There is a WIR off the main bathroom and walk-in pantry in the kitchen. Bedroom 3 has a clothes hanging rack and a small dresser.

Each room has a rural outlook and views of trees. The garden is filled with grevillea and flowering shrubs which the blue wrens, silvereyes, pardalotes, willy wagtails and honeyeaters love. In summer you will also see flocks of Muir's corellas (cacatua pastinator pastinator)... they are the noisy characters that look like cockatoos. Behind the house is a wandoo grove, often inhabited by the local kangaroos. The stars at night will astound you and remind you why it’s called the Milky Way.

ACCESSIBILITY

The house suits those needing easy access. There are ramps into the house with a rail and a single step at the front and back door. Once in the house it is all on the one level. The main bathroom shower and toilet have rails and the toilet is above standard height. There is a low step into both showers, both of which have handheld shower heads.

LONG STAYS

If you’d like to book a longer stay please contact me about a discounted rate.

SHORT STAYS

One night stays are available on request, however will incur a $100 service fee. Please contact me to discuss.

PETS

Due to the property not being fenced and the number of birds and wildlife (kangaroos, frogs and rabbits) on the property and a neighbouring property with chooks, ducks, geese and cats we are not pet friendly.
