We spent three nights in the Baudin Suite at Lantern's Retreat in Dunsborough. It's only 900m from the centre of town so within walking distance if you want to have a couple of drinks with dinner. It does get a bit dark in a couple of places on the walk back but the path is a good one. Lantern's Retreat was built twenty or so years ago and refurbed ten or so years ago. A couple of little bits look a tad worn but overall it's a great place to stay. Very inviting, as is the host, Serge. There's off street parking, a pool, nice lounge area, keypad entry. All very well done. The Baudin Suite is on the first floor and has its own balcony with a couple of comfy chairs. The suite itself is fairly open plan with a large lounge area with a dining table and two lounge couches and coffee table. The area that draws the eye, though, is the bedroom area with its red walls, king size bed, lovely lighting and small windows. Exquisite. The bed is very comfy. Then there's a large walk in closet with a mobile oil heater (if required), ironing board and lots of hanging space. Across from that is a small kitchen area with microwave, small fridge and some cutlery and crockery. It's not a key feature. Then there's a very large bathroom with shower, twin basins, toilet and a large spa bath. It's all very well done. Not cheap but that's in keeping with most accommodation down this way. We'd stay here again in a heartbeat.

Serge is a great host, happy to provide us with recommendations for dinner and places to explore. We booked the Baudin Suite and it was a beautiful room, large and spacious. Waking up to the sound of birds was a welcome change and only a short walk to the beach.

We loved our stay at Lanterns. Serge was incredibly welcoming and the property is decorated beautifully with lots of attention to detail. Even though our stay was only one night we felt refreshed after sleeping in the large, comfortable bed. We will definitely recommend to our friends and stay again when we are in Dunsborough.

The environment created at this lodge can be felt as soon as you are welcomed at the door. I felt the weight of the world disappear walking into the residence & Surge made the check in quick and easy and was very welcoming. My room was nice and roomy and the bathroom was huge. Thoroughly recommend!

Stayed here last minute for one night at the end of January. Serge couldn't have been more welcoming. Room was huge, beautifully done with a massive bathroom. His stunning artwork is up on the walls and most definitely have a look at Bunkers Whales in the guest salon. The detail is mesmeric. A short but delightful stay - many thanks. Highly recommend.

My wife and stayed at the Lanterns Retreat for two nights and couldn’t believe how beautiful the property was. Just a short walk to the beach and town was also an added bonus. The room had everything and more, the pool was gorgeous and warm and the port and minties were just one of many surprises. Serg and his daughter Emma were brilliant hosts ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
