Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We have travelled extensively in both Australia and overseas and this true Aussie gem is one not to miss. Riveresque is a tranquil piece of paradise where you cannot help but relax! Imagine walking up in the most beautiful bush landscape, hearing nothing but the native birds sing their morning song. We just loved having our breakfast on the balcony and watching kangaroos hop by and then revisit us again at dusk as we sampled some of the local wines - which are outstanding by the way. Our hosts went out of their way to ensure everything was ready and perfect for our arrival and we really appreciated all their recommendations of local places to visit. The Villa is centrally located to the Main Street and only a short drive to the regions spectacular beaches and wineries. It was obvious why this place is ranked #1 place to stay in Margaret River. We will be back!!

Kyle thank you for your wonderful review and so glad you were able to enjoy the wildlife on the property. One of the kangaroos you spotted was a female and she had a little joey shortly after you left, so if you return there’s a new addition to our Riveresque family! So glad you enjoyed our little piece of paradise, and hope you come back to visit us the next time you visit Western Australia. Safe travels, Glen

It's like Bali in the heart of Margaret River! Excellent location - secluded but still close to the centre of town. The house is immaculately clean and the variety of breakfast foods is a great bonus that added to making our stay hassle-free. We'll definitely be back and cannot recommend it enough if you're looking for a relaxed and easy stay.

Cold day, the heater was on when we arrived. The Bali music was already playing. As close as you could get to Bali without actually being there. Plenty of basic foods already supplied, condiments, tissues, tea/coffee etc (good pods), all toiletries, bath salts, kitchen roll etc. Plenty of crockery and saucepans etc, good electric cooktop. Great communication with Sharon - she was always offering to pick stuff, or drop things off. The place was very clean. Water pressure excellent - better than Perth. Quite secluded, and very peaceful. Spa was great. Close to town, restaurants, and highly recommended. Hopefully we get to return.

We stayed at River'esque with another couple of friends (total 4 of us). The whole experience was just fabulous! It felt like we went abroad for holidays. The large terrace is extremely secluded, and with large daybeds overlooking birds of paradise is a perfect spot for a couples chill out, reading a book or just enjoying lovely Margaret River wine. It has a large indoor spa and the hot outdoor shower (we went in winter and it was very zen taking these showers in the morning). Beds were comfortable and the whole place was very clean. We appreciated little touches like a fridge and larder stocked with breakfast basics

How special that we could transport you to beautiful Bali without going. The daybeds and view are divine arent they and so happy that you braved the outdoor shower as its such an amazing experience, especially in winter. Thankyou for being perfect guests. Hope to welcome you back

Tastefully decorated with beautiful artefacts from Indonesia, lush gardens all around and a verandah filled with bird song ... this place is heaven. Close enough to walk into town but far enough to never hear a car. Walking and cycling trails right there. Excellent amenities and the beds are really fantastic. We will be back.

Loved our stay to bits. Couldn’t recommend it enough and it’s amazing for couples or even with young ones. Sharon provided us with a portacot soon as she knew we had a toddler and next days breakfast was on the house. It’s prettier in person than photos:)

Perfect combination of a zen Bali feel and the best wines in the world. Great location walking distance to Town Center but in a peaceful isolated location surrounded by forest and the river. Nothing except the sound of nature. Highly recommended for a peaceful romantic get away.

So happy that you were able to find your Zen at Riveresque ! It was created to allow our guests to feel a million miles away from our ' usual' life yet really only a peaceful bush walk from all that Margaret River has to offer. We think the location is perfect and nothing more amazing that sitting on the deck with the birds visiting or luxuriating in a hot outdoor shower. We would love to welcome you back again.

I was invited to join friends at this getaway, and whilst only walking distance from Margaret River township, it felt a million miles away. What a wonderful escape it is, with lovely walking trails on the doorstep presenting stunning photo opportunities and even a gin distillery at the end of one trail! The chalet is decorated in a Balinesque style which seems to offer an extra level of tranquility. It is very well equipped and is perfect for two couples with comfortable king beds in each spacious room and two bathrooms plus a stunning outdoor shower. The generous deck overlooks a lush tropical garden with a beautiful bush land backdrop and the generous day beds are the perfect spot for morning coffee, reading or indulging in an afternoon nap. A return to River’esque is high on my list!

My partner and I booked River'esque for a romantic couples getaway from the city and it exceeded every single one of our expectations. From cuddling up on the day beds among the serenity of the forest to holding a glass of Prosecco in the spa with the afternoon sunlight beaming through, everything was absolute perfection. I can't recommend River'esque enough to couples wanting that little bit extra from their accommodation. We can't wait to get back down there!

This little heaven was just as perfect 16 years after our wedding stay there: The dappled sunlight on the spa, the outdoor shower courtyard, the biggest bird of paradise flowers imaginable. This time we had 3 kids with us, and the balcony fitted us all in sprawled relaxation, coconut spritzers in hand. Treetop views from the 4-poster, real coffee, nice bread and the capacity for a 20m long rope swing all hit the sweet spot. It’s homely enough to be comfortable but glamorous enough to be feel a bit resorty, literally a few minutes out of town. Good on you guys – anyone would feel fabulesque here.
