Yelverton Brook has a truly relaxing atmosphere about it, from your arrival you are greeted by the Kangaroo's who are very interested to see their new arrivals. The Chalets are nicely furnished, and the outdoor spa is wonderful to take advantage off after visiting the local wineries in the Margaret River region.
Nothing feels more like getting away than being one with nature and that’s certainly how it feels at the Yelverton Eco Chalets and Sanctuary. I brought my grandmother down for her 88th birthday to enjoy the country. Upon arriving at our chalet we poured ourselves a glass of wine and enjoyed watching the birds come to visit on our patio, mostly 28’s. Time flew by as we chatted and enjoyed the scenery, it wasn’t long before we were greeted by the Kangaroos bounding through the bush. We had 7, 3 mamma’s with joey’s and one on it’s own. They must have been quite comfortable as they stayed around our patio for a good 3 hours before wondering off. We watched them the entire time, until about 7PM. They also returned in the morning around 7AM. It has been a wonderful experience, the owners are very welcoming and friendly. The homemade organic bread is delicious and bought warm to your door. There is homemade jams, milk, butter and juice provided along with cereals tea and coffee. They really do cater for everything. The accommodation is not the Crown, it’s homely with a rustic cottage feel, old appliances and lots of floral. We were in the Jarrah chalet which is located closer to the road which you can hear – that would be my only “complaint” if I had one but to be honest it is not a particularly busy road. The whole experience was unforgettable, something I will cherish with my grandmother for years to come. Despite only being 2 nights it felt like we had been winding down for a week. On another note, it’s super close to the wineries and breweries smack bang in between Busselton and Margaret River, everything is on your doorstep. We popped out to Cheeky Monkey for lunch and brought a pizza back for our evening meal. I’d highly recommend this experience to couples, small families or granddaughters and grandmothers.…
The pictures do not do the place justice. The rooms had everything we require there was even milk butter, eggs and coffee beans in the fridge . The rooms were very clean and tastefully decorated with lovely art work. Correct food was also provided for the wildlife and a guide to how much to feed them. The spa in the late afternoon was delightful.
Very welcoming, the place is very clean and comfortable. The highlight is the outdoor SPA. As soon as it is dark you can just watch the wildlife getting out of the bush. Very quiet and relaxing. We even had a little surprise waiting for us as it was our wedding anniversary.
We booked last minute for a three night stay and were truly delighted with the privacy, charm, cleanliness and beauty of the surrounds. The chalets were set some distance away from each other with trees between each building meaning we didn't see another person during our whole stay. The animals were the true highlight though, coming throughout the day and night for a feed. We saw kangaroos, woylies, possums, bandicoots, etc, up close and personal. Great place!
