What a beautiful and secluded way to spend a few days in the region. Each chalet is in its own private setting which ensures your privacy. The only things passing by were the kangaroos and the birds. The welcoming touches were very welcome! A well equipped kitchen and a woodburner fire just mean you never want to leave.

From the touches like warming the chalet for you before you arrive, to the welcome pack with samples of Margaret River treats, to the...

Absolutely pampered with the luxury interior the room. Oversize spa jacuzzi, with day window. Luxury bedding in 5-star hotel room setting & the fireplace built a cozy atmosphere in unexpected winter season in early October. The bonus was when we spotted kangaroo hopping by from our bedroom window.

lovely spot to chill and re-energise what ever the weather. Returning in December. The wildflowers were in abundance as were the birds. Great facilities in the kitchen and complimentary Margaret River produce.

We have been going to Forest Rise Retreat for the past fifteen years and never get tired of the beautiful forest surrounds, with birds, kangaroos and total relaxation. Indoor Spa and Log fire.
