A secluded, peaceful spot in the forest with everything you need. Bed is fantastic, the outdoor shower divine and the tranquility is perfection. Will always come back. The kitchen is well equipped to make some meals using local products- including the generous sampling waiting for you when you arrive. Sitting on the porch and enjoying the wildlife among the trees...

What a very special place to stay when visiting the Margaret River region. The cabins are located in the bush offering a high level of privacy and at the same time being clean well appointed for our 4 day stay. Nature is all around with bird life and kangaroos within easy viewing. Every day we looked forward to our return...

Such a peaceful and tranquil location, with everything you need to escape provided. We enjoyed the self guided walks around the property, took pleasure in all the birds and kangaroos which visited us daily. We appreciated...

I very rarely bother to write reviews but feel so compelled to write something about this truly special place that once settled in we didn't want to leave. The management have a 'hands off' approach but are very much available if needed which leaves you feeling truly free but very safe in a woodland setting at the same time. The...

We stayed in the lodge for 3 nights and everything we needed was there when we arrived. We could not fault anything with our stay. The rooms were very spacious and clean. One of the highlights was the kangaroos which came very close at certain times of the day. We will definitely book again.

We tend to come back each time we visit the region. You are tucked away in a private villa and surrounded by bush. You feel like you are alone in the area....just you and the kangaroos and birds. Oh and a visit from the local bobtail lizard. The place is clean and fresh. Brilliant spa with glass roof to allow...

We stayed at the lake-view chalet for Christmas. It was the perfect way to end our week-long trip in Margaret River. When we entered, we found welcoming gifts- holiday poppers, champagne, local Margaret River cheeses and chocolate. It set just the right note to kick off our holiday. The house is equipped with everything you may need- fully stocked kitchen,...
