We booked early to coincide with friends who migrate from Perth to this unique accommodation each year at this time. We had a fabulous two days at this heritage villa loving our en-suite room with a post bed and fascinating decor. When you book you are offered the option of an

Response from John P, Owner at The Postmasters Lodgings

Guests and owner all in their bedrooms at 9 PM. No vacancy sign displayed. Loud banging on door at 10 PM. Got up and opened front door. Fellow demanded room at low price. Told them to try the Motor Camp. Certainly no insults from our side.

"Any that are available! You must book in advance as this is a small, family type of establishment, where the service is bespoke."
"We stayed in the front room with the Peacocks! Awesome."
"Double overlooking veranda & bay Don't if you like standard, tick-box anonymity Do for quirky, old world charm"
"We asked for the larger of the rooms at this guest house and it is recommended because it has a larger bathroom. Space is a bit tight in the bedroom which has a four poster bed and a fan which was very necessary as the weather was very warm and the room quite hot for sleeping. No fly screens so the fly spray was needed (and supplied)."
"There are limited dining options in Rawene, and they close early, so let Dorothy & John know if you require a meal."
