Polly Baptist
As a professional sailor and chef for the last 30 years I made my home in Gnarabup about 10 years ago building this house. Having trained as a plant based chef and nutritionalist, I continue with my studies whilst  still working on yachts. I come back to the region in the summer to enjoy the south west by entertaining, hiking, swimming and paddle boarding along our pristine Western Australian coastline. I am happy to  provide workshops, lunches or snacks to those who are staying at Saudade, just make an enquiry.

Having travelled the world extensively I have returned home to Western Australia. I am an experienced surfer, diver, fisherman and boat handler. I have  a wealth of knowledge of the Margaret River region. I play golf regularly at the local course, mountain bike around the region, surf daily, and I am an avid outdoorsman happy to share my knowledge and skills with the guests upon their requests.
