If you are driving down to Margaret River from Perth, I recommend you stay in Willy Resort. It seems you are alone...haha.. I haven't met other guests during our stay (3 days 2 nights) BBQ is just one step from the living area. High quality cooking utensils are more than enough.

Willy Bay is private, comfortable, well appointed with beautiful surroundings. The resort is close wineries and everything you could need. Unfortunately, for my husband he became very ill and thanks to the caring and efficient staff, especially the wonderful, Kylee, my husband was looked after. And so was I. I cannot thank Kylee enough for being there and sorting out...

We enjoyed a short 3 night stay at Willy Bay Resort. Beautiful property with a picturesque lake, vineyards and a forest backdrop. Our studio was very well finished and immaculately presented with a fantastic view over the vineyard. Staff were very friendly, polite and helpful.

Willy Bay is simply superb. Well appointed studio, no expense spared. Luxurious, comfortable, private, your stay will feel as though you are the only people on the property. Property is extremely well priced and a must if you are visiting this superb wine region.

Our fantastic well-appointed room was a newly appointed suite with a stunning view over a lake with the backdrop of a natural bush setting. The location was brilliant, very central to Metricup and the myriad of surrounding wineries, Margaret River and Busselton. A three day stay using this location as our base was just right to take in all the...

If you are looking for an amazing weekend away with a loved one then this is the place to book. It is such a peaceful place to relax. Super quiet and beautiful ambience. The King chalet was incredible. Such a great design. You can't beat the location or the staff. Margaret River's little secret.

Everything was good about this place, the chalet was modern and comfortable, it was quiet and handy for everything. reception staff were friendly and the whole thing was uncomplicated. I would suggest a bigger fire as flames didnt really provide much heat? Other than that, it was perfect.

Thanks for your review! We love hearing back from our guests and are delighted you enjoyed your stay with us. Our gas fireplaces create a lovely ambience, particularly in winter.

Great location to Margaret River town, Dunsbrough and all the winery and food attractions. The driveway into the property takes you on a lovely journey past the lake, and around the boundary of the property (adjacent to a winery and countless rows of grapevines) where there are little roads leading to the chalets.
