Perhaps I have been spoilt staying at similar places at a cheaper nightly tariff because as pleasant as this 'retreat' was, iI did not feel the same level of excitement as other reviewers have expressed. To start with the positives, the bed was large and very comfortable, the cosmetic accessories in the bathroom were local and lovely, the kitchen was...

We live a busy lifestyle and need a place to unwind and clear our minds without any distractions. We find Forest rise offers exactly what we need. We arrive to peaceful natural little house with a fire place that brings a warm cosy feel to the entire place. We did not see any other people near or around our place...

I don't really want to write negatively, but the website and the reality didn't match. I have only resorted to a Trip Advisor review as I wrote a paper-based feedback on the form provided, but have received no response from a facility which promotes itself well up in the market. Facilities (especially the bathroom) were ageing. Red tile floors don't...

Everything was amazing, loved every moment of our stay. The little birds that came to visit every day were just so cute. We needed nothing else for our stay. CD's, DVD's ,games, wine, cheese and biscuits were great.

You will want to stay forever! A short drive past the picturesque lake, then through the forest on the property, leads to each of the secluded rammed-earth chalets. They are beautifully appointed with a kitchen, log fire, air conditioning, a large spa and very a comfortable k/s bed. The verandah is a perfect place to observe and enjoy the wildlife,...

The most peaceful, relaxing and romantic spot in the south west!!!! Love it...beautiful big spa under the stars, log fire, local goodies and bubbly in the fridge and a comfy king bed to sink into. So close to all the wineries, perfect spot! My partner just proposed to me there too which was amazing 😍

This is my new favourite spot in Margaret river. The chalets were lovely, very well appointed and completely private. We had the fire roaring all weekend. Loved the bikes outside the chalets. Also loved the lake, recommend lighting a fire there at sunset.

This place is just gorgeous. Your unit is set in its own private area. We were down by the lake. The room is great with a spa that has windows out so you can see the night sky.

We stayed for a mid week winter getaway and were not disappointed. Not having to check in made it seem like we were just coming home, with the heater on, fridge stocked and music playing. We took advantage of the walking trails and push bikes - some great opportunities for photography of landscape and wildlife. Sitting in front of the...
