Star 4.9 (9 Google reviews)

Barn Hives is a self-sustainable eco-luxury tourist destination in the middle of unspoiled nature of Margaret River region.
Whether you’re looking for an adventure, relaxing break, spend a honeymoon or simply to wind down in nature, Barn Hives eco-friendly pods invites you to experience nature, restaurant and surroundings, in the premium way while leaving minimum print to the Earth. Situated within the incredible Smith's white sand beach situated only a few minutes away while central to all amenities Margaret River is offering. 

The name of the Barn Hives (Eco Pods) comes from Barnyard Bees farm, their bee’s hives spread around the property. When they think of a hive, they simply think of a natural piece of construction. But adding a little touch of the modern, they get a mix of new and old, with a link between nature, landscape and ecological sustainability. It’s a reference to the conservation tourism concept which Barnyard Farm is all about. 

Barn Hives were constructed with maximum care for the environment. Guided by nature, evolved with aesthetic passion, and fortified by an all-encompassing sustainable philosophy, it is a masterpiece of forward-thinking flair. 

The industrial contemporary design architecture of Barn Hives is inspired to be bold, optimistic, and distinctly of this place while at the same time materials and colours were chosen to make it blend naturally into the landscape. The shape of the pods provides a wonderful top view of the vineyard surroundings, giving guests even closer experience of living in the hive proximity with nature. 

Special attention has been paid to sunlight and cross-ventilation to achieve comfort without the use of harsh mechanical implements. Water is collected from rainfall and heated by solar panels making it self-sustainable. With a pallet fire heater during the chilly winter days and fans for summer. 

Barn Hives aims to prove that hospitality and environmental conservation can coexist to create a unique and positive experience. Create more, consume less; embrace every opportunity to learn and improve; be innovative and committed; inspire others to positive change; and always look to nature, a richness of experience without over-consumption– that is their philosophy. 

Barn Hives was designed for adults, whether they be couples, friends, siblings, mother and daughter or just travelling solo, so it’s rare to bump into a guest who is under 18. Their team will always be happy to discuss any exceptions!

Best place I've stayed, ever. Beautiful location, accomodation and scenery. It was lovely to watch the ducks and chickens waddle about the area pecking at the grass as well; it was very relaxing. The kitchen is well populated with everything you'd need to make most foods, and the outdoor barbecue (although we didn't use it) is of high quality. The lighting is perfect and the speakers help create a really calming atmosphere. As a couple we found it very romantic. The only hold-up was the inclusion of an oven instead of a microwave - was the first time we've stayed anywhere that had an oven! Required a bit of adjustment but was quite useful. The shower and bathroom are very spacious, despite the deceivingly "small" 50m2 floorspace. The queen-size bed is super comfortable, as is the couch on floor level. The restaurant next door, Barnyard 1978, is wonderful. Best coffee I've had in WA and everyone there is so friendly and helpful. I highly recommend staying here and would love to return in the future - it is well worth the nightly cost for the experience alone.

One the one hand there is very little to say about this place: it‘s absolutely stunning. On the other hand one could list all these positive aspects: easy check-in, bottle of wine as welcoming gift, high quality tech and kitchen equipment. Friendly service, beautiful location in the vineyard. Not these strict check in and check out times as everywhere else these days after the pandemic. And a great restaurant onsite. You can’t do anything wrong staying here.

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at the barn hives. Beautiful scenery out on the deck, cute barn animals, delicious coffee, and nice wine. Our hive was very hot upon arrival though, so I'd recommend going in the cooler months.

These hives are seriously amazing. Having driven past many times we thought it time to sleep in one. We just spent a fabulous 3 nights in Hive 1 and can't recommend it enough. A perfect place to come back and relax in after a busy day amongst the vines. Highly recommended.
