Reviews for Riverbank

Riverbank Margaret River
July 2016
House is huge for just hubby and me, very well kept and have everything you need for cooking.  It's also not far from the vineyards and chocolate factory. I jogged around the beautiful and serene area almost daily. Only unfortunate thing is we were there in one of the colder winters and there was no electric heater. So hubby had to warm the living room by starting a wood fire daily in the fireplace, most definitely a unique experience coming from a tropical country that has no winter! Will definitely choose to stay there again but when it's warmer.
(Note: 2 electric room heaters added to the property)

The house was lovely and clean albeit freezing when we first arrived but once the fire was established the house was able to warm up sufficiently.

Amenities in the house are everything you need. The place was far too large for just the two of us, but would be perfect for a family with children, or a group of adults staying together.

Overall a lovely stay in a beautiful house and fantastic location.

I've Stayed here twice now, once with my husband and in laws and once with a group of friends, we adore this place! A perfect position, close enough to town to walk or ride your bike if you want and far enough from town to feel as though you are in the middle of nowhere. The house is beautiful and has everything you will need to enjoy your stay and not worry about bringing the kitchen sink.

Lovely house, we felt like we were surrounded by bush but still so close to all the amenities of town. The deck out the front was perfect for a BBQ and a glass of wine!

The house was lovely and very homely.  Had a really great stay.  Loved using the fire and having the wood at the side door ready to go.  Next door neighbour's dog was a lovely addition.  

It was clean and peaceful.

Thank you we had a great stay

We loved our time at Riverbank. In particular, we enjoyed the timber and artwork throughout the house, the potbelly fireplace, and the huge open windows at the front. We appreciated the provisions in the kitchen which were varied and ample. We also appreciated the second toilet!

The only thing we really missed was a washing machine. We went into town and did our washing at a laundromat. (House Down South - Washing machine now supplied)

Everything we wanted to see, from wineries to beaches to quirky cafes, was within easy reach of the house. We were blessed with beautiful weather throughout our stay and made the most of the opportunities to get acquainted with the area.

The surrounds and birdlife were stunning and made it easy for us to immerse ourselves in a true holiday experience. We could have hardly asked for anything more.

Congrats on a gorgeous place!

An hassle-free takeover to handover procedure of this lovely abode. Location is absolutely a plus. Living near the "woods", yet within decent neighbourhood of the locals and close to Margaret River township. We love the tranquility, the huge living space, and fireplace. Full kitchen appliances and tablewares that we can freely use. Clean house with clean liners (very important to me!).  We felt so homely except for the bed. It would be lovely to have better comfortable ones, especially sleep is very important to tired guests, to complete full stars rating. Would highly recommend this holiday home.  PS: We enjoyed our daily 'visitor' - the neighbour's dog. He's such an obedient boy.
OWNERS NOTE - The bed has been replaced since this review. We appreciate the feedback.

Great house,very quiet, enjoyed plenty of bush walking near river. Would have liked a washing machine and better pillows but apart from that really enjoyed our stay. Thank You.

How can you go back to your normal life after spending time in this gorgeous house! Snuggling up with the warm fire which heated the whole house, was so comfy! Sitting on the deck in the morning watching the bird life and taking in the fresh south coastal air was a much needed dose of "just what the doctor ordered". We had such a great time touring the wineries, which is practically on the door step. Thankyou Riverbank we will definatley be coming back!!!

The house was amazing. Beautiful quality fittings and very clean. The lounges were the very comfortable and again great quality. The garden, the herbs and the surrounds were tranquil and divine.
Thank you for the coffee and wine which we enjoyed and a few other bits and pieces left in the cupboard.
We had a very enjoyable relaxed and comfortable stay.

Had an amazing 3 day stay at Riverbank. The place is beautiful and has a great location for the Margaret river, close to town and many of the vineyards. We very much enjoyed the outside space and BBQ area to relax and unwind with a glass of wine. I would definitely re commune staying at riverbank, it is a lovely place and if I am in the area again I would love to return to the property. Thankyou.

Great house in a beautiful location!

October 2013
We spent 3 nights in this great holiday house in a wonderful location surrounded by bush with the river walking trails across the road, and a short drive or cycle to town.  The furnishings in the lounge/dining are really lovely and comfortable, and the place was spotlessly clean on arrival.  We'll definitely return to this spot.  Thanks!

We had a great time in Margaret River and enjoyed our stay at Riverbank - peaceful, comfortable and convenient - everything you could want was available and we managed to stay warm in the chilly weather.  Would definately come back again!

We had a wonderful stay. Easy to book, no fuss to get into the house, well maintained and overall a very enjoyable experience. The only thing I would suggest is possibly having a portable heater of some kind in the winter months....We were staying with our baby and during the night and early morning the main bedroom became very very cold.

Our stay was fantastic.  The house was very clean, comfortable and wonderfully homely.  All the information provided was clear and helpful. The rooms were spacious and all very nice (there were no fights over who gets the best room).
We only wished we could have stayed longer.
Thanks for a great stay!

We LOVED our stay at Riverbank. It is a very warm, cosy spunky home. The kitchen and bathroom were great and the deck also. I would highly recommend this house to anyone staying 2 nights or 2 weeks in the area. It is suitable for a couple or a large family. Very happy.

Great affordable house, awesome spot.

January 2013
Enjoyed our stay immensely. Property was very lovely and the location was perfect - close enough to town, but also secluded. Used a number of the fresh herbs and produce available in the garden in our cooking which made it feel homely. Will definately consider Riverbank for any future breaks. Thank you to staff at House Down South for providing extra fans during such a hot period - made the stay more comfortable, and the quick efforts to correct our booking requirements.

Riverbank was clean, comfortable and well appointed. It was in a great location and close to everything in Margaret River. We would definitely stay here again

Our stay at Riverbank was most enjoyable.   Our family visiting from England were very impressed and we all enjoyed the view of the natural bushland and the bird life, and ate many meals out on the front verandah.  The house was very tastefully decorated, clean and comfortable.   The kitchen was very well equipped with all requirements for self catering.  Kindling and firewood supplies were plentiful and the wood fire was very easy to manage, and most enjoyable during the cool evenings. The whole experience from making enquiries and booking the home, to arriving and collecting the key ran very smoothly and we couldn't fault the service we received.
