Bali@Avalon has two guest rooms which share a common bathroom with quality finishes and furnishings throughout. Each room has a queen bed with 1,000 thread count sheets. The guest house is housed in a very private Balinese style compound and is separate from the main house. Each room has dedicated indoor and outdoor tables and chairs, safe,as well as small fridge, tea and coffee facilities, and microwave.
If you are a single or a couple wishing greater privacy we are happy to discuss booking out the second room at a reduced rate provided it remains unused during your stay. Ask us about this option.
There is a heated swimming pool, surrounded by immaculate gardens boasting lush foliage and flowering plants. Next to the pool is a Bali style cabana, table and beautiful daybed. There is also a fully functional outdoor kitchen set amongst the beautiful established gardens. Guests should have no trouble finding either shade or sunshine as they desire.
The gardens abound in statuary and several water features, including fish ponds. There is an outdoor shower with hot and cold running water. The gardens even boast a small temple as traditionally found on many roadsides on the island. The garden design allows for both communal areas and nooks for contemplation and privacy. Subtle lighting ensure the beauty continues into the evening.
Guests have complete access to the gardens, pool, cabana and decks. Guests also have access to a barbeque with all necessary utensils.
Interaction with guests
As hosts we are both experienced travellers with a love of meeting people. Having one introvert and one extrovert in the relationship gives a good appreciation of both socialising and the need for quiet personal space. We are happy to work with guests to provide the desired experience as best we can, however it is our home and we with be sharing the grounds with you.
We both work full time outside the home and so will not always be physically available to weekday guests, but where practical and convenient we are happy to assist visitors to enjoy and experience the area. Bob, in particular, has worked in environmental management locally for nearly two decades and has a wealth of knowledge about the region he is happy to share.
Avalon Bay is in Falcon, a residential suburb of Mandurah located 11 kilometres south of the town Centre. It is approximately 80 kilometres from the Perth CBD. Falcon is surrounded by water, with the Indian Ocean on one side and the beautiful waters of the Peel-Harvey Estuary on the other.
Opportunities for water sports abound. There are several nearby surf breaks, a limestone reef for snorkelling, a bay for swimming and miles of sandy beaches for walking. There are 4 boat ramps within a few kilometres providing excellent options for launching a variety of vessels. The beaches and the nearby Dawesville Channel provide excellent fishing opportunities. And of course Mandurah is famous for its crabs and crabbing.
There are numerous walking and cycling tracks in the area.
Cobblers Tavern and its’ bistro is a 15 minute walk away. There are a few other restaurant options nearby, as well as a number of faster food and bakery outlets. Falcon isn’t a nightlife Mecca, but the sunsets are superb.
Bali@Avalon is 1 kilometre from shops at Miami Plaza shopping Centre where you can find supermarkets, newsagent, chemist, and a variety of other specialty shops. Most of the necessities can be easily found there.

Shortly past the shopping centre you will turn right onto Yeedong Rd. Go up and over the hill, when you can see the ocean you are pretty much there.
