Our modern two bedroom Lakeview chalet was well equipped and made for a very comfortable stay. Unfortunately our view wasn't obscured by bushes. The location is ideal if you enjoy nature and a quiet getaway. Guests would need a car to visit Margaret River and beaches.

Beautiful timber tables. Even the latest Miele washing machine and dryer. And a fully operational kitchen. Or a BBQ outside. It is so lovely to enter the resort at night with the path lit... More

We spent two nights mid week just after the silly season. It was great waking up to fresh air and wildlife in the extremely well appointed chalet.

A very high standard of accommodation in a peaceful setting. If you are looking to get away from it all for a few days, this is the place to be. We stayed here for two nights and would definitely stay here again. 15 minute drive from Margaret River, surrounded by some of the best wineries in the area.
