We visited for 6 nights and had the most wonderful time. Serge is the perfect host. Nothing is too much trouble for him and he goes out of his way to make your stay perfect. He has an excellent knowledge of and enthusiasm for the Dunsborough area.

My wife and I stayed here for three nights and the experience was so much more than we could have reasonably expected! Serge was the consummate host willing to engage in conversation about music, literature, birds and just about any other topic. Our room was comfortable, well-lit, airy and in a quiet location. We were spoiled for choice with the...

Perfect place to stay on a trip to Margaret River area. This place is very well taken care of, the house is beautiful, the suites are very spacious, comfortable and elegant. Serge the owner is the kindest, prepares the best breakfast all fresh and made to order the night before. Great location walking distance to the city center and restaurants,...

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights and it was perfect. Lovely big room and bathroom with glorious king size bed and freestanding bathtub. Serge was very friendly and helpful. Accommodation was within walking distance of the beach and town. Would definitely stay again. Thanks!

Serge was extremely welcoming, a perfect host. We had the best five days, starting each day with a sumptuous breakfast selected from a huge selection of wonderful home cooked meals, prepared expertly by our host. So good in fact that I have tried to replicate the beautiful berry trifle we had each day, but failed to come up to the...

A wonderful place in a great location with a very comfortable vibe. Serge is a great host who will go out of his way to help. Highly recommend staying and who can't knock back free chocolates and port by the fireplace!

A whistle stop stay for us but very enjoyable. Very well presented with all the amenities you could ask for. Serge was a great host and provided very helpful information on the local area and places to eat. Wonderful breakfast too. Recommended.

We liked everything about Lanterns Retreat! The room we had was on the second floor, almost as a standalone apartment unit. It is beautifully decorated, well appointed and spacious (the photos here do not do it justice!) We had a balcony overlooking the gardens where we whiled away many hours just reading. The b&b also has a small pool which...

My partner and I spent 3 nights at this wonderful bed and breakfast over the Christmas long weekend. From the moment we walked in the door our host, Serge, was delightfully welcoming. He was very friendly and informative as he showed us around the lovely common areas of the retreat and then our room, the Baudin suite, which was exquisite...
