Fantastic place to visit
These chalets were so unexpected, you could easily stay here for a week. We stayed four nights. They had a fully equipped kitchen, oven, cook top, dishwasher, microwave, and a full-size refrigerator, as well as plenty of pans etc,
There is also a BBQ on the outside deck.
It is a quiet oasis, kangaroos hopping by, as well as native birds and plants.
The king size bed is very comfortable, the bathroom exceptional with a spa bath and large shower. There is also a washing machine and dryer in a separate cupboard. Plenty of hanging space.
A home away from home.
The staff is very helpful and personable. We will definitely come back again if we are in the area, and will not hesitate to recommend it to friends.
It is ideally situated in the wine region, with several vineyards and cellar doors within a kilometre. Very pleasant outlook and grounds

We came down to the south-west to do some wedding planning and stayed here. The view of the vineyards by day and Roos at night was gorgeous. The place was impeccably clean, the bath towels lush and had a beautiful bathroom. Would definitely recommend staying here.

Good value
Efficient and pleasant service from time of booking and right through our stay. Comfortable, clean, spacious rooms with all we needed for a 5-night stay as two couples. Convenient location from where we visited between Busselton, Dunsborough and around Margaret River area. Enjoyed several walks around the bush setting. Self-contained accommodation and quiet location.
