We stayed 3 nights at the Stone Stable. Which is closer to the entrance and main residence - but we didn’t feel it lacked any privacy at all from this. The stable is appointed beautifully and is cozy and welcoming. It has a gorgeous court yard where we were able to sit and watch a variety of local birds enjoy themselves. We had a cozy, relaxing and beautiful weekend here and would recommend it to any couple or single looking for some serious RnR. We were pleased to find a small jug of milk, tea and coffee (pod machine) for our use. We met Tim and Lily, who are lovely and we’re able to help us with any concern or question we had. Perfect service. The location is also a short drive from local towns and attractions.

My Husband and I just eloped to the Hidden Valley forest retreat we have the most amazing time. Tim and Lily did the best job by making our day extra special we could not have asked for more. The cabin was very comfortable and cosy I would highly recommend staying here.

Our stay 3 night stay started with a very warm & friendly greeting from the host, after which we were left to our own devices. The chalets are set in a truly peaceful & tranquil setting, surrounded by the most amazing bushland/forest. Although there were a lot of windows with no window treatments it felt very private & secluded with the other chalets well distanced apart. If you are a light sleeper or need darkness for a good nights sleep, these may not be for you due to the lack of window treatments...but it was just so nice to lay in bed with an outlook to the bush/forest. The chalets are well equipped with king bed, gorgeous indoor/outdoor bathroom with all the amenities, kitchenette with a coffee pod machine, fridge, hotplate & microwave but no oven, BBQ, outdoor seating & wood fire. The chalets are not too far from Margaret River & or Dunsborough. We ate breakfast in the chalet one morning & dinner 2 nights, having got some provisions from the Bunbury Farmers Market & Dunsborough. The rest of the time we ate out (highly recommend Yarris & Meelup Farmhouse in Dunsborough). If you are looking for a relaxing, peaceful & or romantic time, would highly recommend a stay here. It felt like we had stayed longer than the 3 nights, that's how relaxing it was.

When we first pulled into Hidden Valley we weren’t so sure we had selected the right location for our southern getaway, but as soon as we made our way to our Ecolodge we knew it was perfect! The ecolodge was a beautifully modern, light filled bush oasis that was a great place to call home for 4 nights. From the floor to ceiling glass in the bathroom, the outdoor bath, the large deck with bbq and the comfy king bed it was all absolutely wonderful! Being 1km back from the entrance/ reception and only 3 other cabins close by (but artfully concealed from each other in the bush) you truely feel like you are in your own private bush paradise. As it is a bit of a drive to get to any food I recommend doing a little bit of a shop to stock up the small fridge before you check in (there is a coles & liquorland not too far away in vasse just off the highway that we ended up going back to). There is salt, pepper, oil, milk, paper towel and cling wrap in the cabin already but you will need a few other staples like butter & sauce. I was worried that because of all the windows and no curtains we would struggle to sleep in but we managed just fine :) We had such a wonderful stay here and highly recommend!

We stayed 3 nights in the Stone Stables and had the most amazing experience. The world is a bit hectic at the moment with covid but the owners have practices in place to minimise unnecessary interaction and the place was in pristine clean condition upon our arrival. Wood was provided for the fireplace, as well as kindling pre-set up when we first arrived. Chocolates on the bed as well as a kind note from the owner to enjoy our stay. Fridge came prestocked with fresh milk for the complimentary tea and coffee supplies which also included a pod machine (complete with complimentary pods). The room was beautiful, the bed was extremely comfortable and the garden, complete with outdoor spa and barbeque, was cosy and private for our enjoyment. They clearly think of everything as we could even log onto netflix via the smart tv, enjoy music on the speaker dock provided and found out that wifi was available within the chalet. 100% will recommend to everyone we know as well as keep this place in mind for our next holiday.
