ABOUT TANAH MARAH
Tanah Marah is located halfway between Cowaramup and Margaret River, in Western Australia’s famous Margaret River wine region.
The property is absolutely stunning and completely secluded, whilst also convenient to local attractions.
Six picturesque self-contained chalets enjoy commanding views of our expansive private lake and forest.
The Lakeside Function Centre and reception is located on the opposite side of the lake. Superb green lawns stretch away to the forest.
A pretty causeway lined with rosemary hedges links the two sides.
There’s a 9-hole golf course, tennis courts, a gym, kayaks to use on the lake, lawn games and a library available for guests.
The 340 acre property includes native Australian bush land providing excellent opportunities for walking and bird watching. There are also some friendly sheep who love to be fed even though they graze on lush farmland all day!
The two bedroom rammed earth chalets are well appointed and recently renovated. A full-sized, fully equipped kitchen has Cesarstone benchtops, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, microwave and European ovens and induction cooktops.
There’s a large dining table and plenty of space to relax on comfy couches.
A terrace with generously proportioned outdoor furniture overlooks our stunning private lake.
Large bedrooms can be configured with a variety of luxuriously comfortable beds, and each comes with its own enormous ensuite bathroom.
About The Owners
Like many people we had always loved holidays in southwest WA. For over 30 years we were very happy farming on our beautiful property Kerry Downs in York, and busy working off the farm as well. On a visit to Margaret River to visit old friends we were told of a property that had been for sale for some time.
We were intrigued by what we were told of the property we have now named Tanah Marah – one visit and we were hooked by the absolute beauty and the opportunity that it presented. We were amazed to find ourselves moving down within six months, with the added bonus of some of our family coming with us!
We are now running Tanah Marah with our daughter Lucy and with help from our sons Tom and Joe. We share in all the tasks, although using the new ride on mower seems to be the most popular job!
Tanah Marah was previously run as an Eco Resort and restaurant and already had a lot of amazing infrastructure including a lake, sealed roadways, a nine hole golf course and rammed earth chalets. When we arrived, the property was tired and neglected. We have put in a lot of work to restore the grounds and completely refurbish the chalets, and very importantly to Rory, resealed the two tennis courts with plexipave. We still have a few sheep, so can enjoy the occasional farm activity, and have great hopes for our border collies Pandora and Annie!
We plan to continue upgrading the buildings and grounds for individual visitors and groups of people to enjoy.
We feel privileged to live in such a beautiful place and love learning about this amazing environment and how to care for it. We strive to create a high quality accommodation and event venue, providing unique experiences for our guests to treasure.
Linda and Rory Curtin.
