“Wonderful peaceful accommodation”
Reviewed 23 September 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Jilba cottage is beautifully situated on the southern slopes of the Porongurup mountain range in the Great Southern area of Western Australia. The ancient granite Porongurups have long been one of our favourite destinations for walking and sight seeing. The self contained cottage is on a farm specialising in cattle, avocados and olives and comprises two bedrooms, one with ensuite facilities, a spacious lounge/dining area and a fully equipped kitchenette. Everything was fresh, clean and well presented. Views from the balcony were spectacular, looking over the coastal plain to the city of Albany, forty kilometres to the south.
Breakfast ingredients for the first morning were kindly provided and there was enough for the second morning too. Some of the delicious home grown olives were also provided.
Joan and Jim Baily, the friendly owners, have thought of everything to enhance the comfort of their guests and we spent two happy and peaceful days here. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend it for couples or small families.

“Perfect for a quiet getaway in the Albany area”
Reviewed 22 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Thoroughly enjoyed our four day stay at Jilba Cottage. It is beautifully appointed and situated at the southern side of the Porongorrups . We really enjoyed a wine on the deck in the evening watching the sun go down over Albany while kangaroos came in from the bush for their evening graze. Jian and Jim are excellent hosts.
