“fantasic weekend stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014

this is the perfect little hideaway close to all Margaret river has to offer.
great little chalets, fab spa, all you could ever want for a bit of peace and quiet, perfectly secluded, we didn't see a soul during our stay.
Evan, is the perfect host, and we enjoyed a good wine tasting at the cellar door , and without a doubt they have the best cab sav in all of Margaret river .. yummy =)
this place is a real treat ... go treat yourself to a night here

My partner and I have now stayed at island brook estate twice and highly recommend it. After staying at many different types of accommodation in the Margaret river region, we have finally found our 'go to' place. In a fantastic location and set in beautiful bush land, the private chalets are clean, comfortable and you can't beat the view. The owner Evan is always friendly, welcoming and accommodating. Can't speak highly enough of our our experience at island brook estate. Their wines are outstanding too, don't leave without trying (and buying) a few!

We just had a great 2 night stay at their Chardonnay cottage, really enjoyed, it's very well placed for wineries, caves, chocolatiers and beaches. Saw some rare Red tailed Black Cockatoo's while we had our breakfast, made my morning.

My wife and I stayed in the Cabernet 1 Bedroom lodge for 3 nights midweek. We had a special offer of $150 a night with 3rd night free. The lodge was lovely, set in a wood setting, near the winery. Well equipped, BBQ, spa bath inside, comfortable bed. Quiet apart from wildlife (birds). Road barely audible. Evan, the owner was extremely welcoming and full of information. We did a wine tasting, the merlot is excellent. The kangaroos are in the woods and can be seen when running round the path that runs along the edge of the wood, or in amongst the vines at dawn and dusk. The Margaret River area is beautiful. You need a car to make the most of it. Beaches, sunsets, resturants. A relaxing 3 days before hitting Perth. WiFi on site, but not in lodge. We will be back. Took a case of wine with us, which Evan autographed. We believe this place will grow in reputation. We loved it.

We stayed in the 2 bedroomed chalet - Semillion. There are only 3 chalets, all in the Forrest and each private. Excellant amenities and clean. Great location for visiting Margaret River and Cape Naturiste areas. Wine is superb! Unfortunately we did not have and kangaroos visit us. Evan the host owner was very helpful. Only criticism was there was local road noise from about 4am but we got used to that, and it could be improved by adding a second bathroom or at least a second or separate toilet. The chairs on the verander were a little uncomfortable.

Hi Robina,
Thank you for your review, and my apologies on behalf of the kangaroos :)
I apologise for the early morning road noise, it is an annual occurrence every February. It comes from the trucks delivering grapes to the winery's. White grapes need to be harvested in the cool of the morning hence all the activity on the roads. It is much quieter now.
I will look into the chairs.
Hope to see you again sometime.
Warm regards,
Evan

Spent two nights on Xmas in the forest, a secluded and relaxing stay overall. Two bedroom in the chalet that can accomodate 5 people at most; Adequate kitchen tools, and good-sized bathroom (sadly the SPA did not work).

The most enjoyable part is breakfast outside the chalet, watching the forest with fresh gentle breeze passing by. BBQ machine is on the patio as well.

Evan is warm hearted and went out of way to send Iphone charger to our chalet. It is also a pleasure chatting with him on the vineyard.

Really enjoyed the 4 days we had in Chardonnay chalet on island brooke estate. Very private in amongst the jarrah trees. Evan was very accommodating - we had an issue with the water heater (Califont ) and within a few hours a new one was up and running. Evan was very helpful with local tips and recommendations. Went looking for the Roos in the nearby field with camera in hand, went I got back to the chalet on dusk, turns out the Roos had been on the front lawn of the chalet !much to the amusement of our group who decided not to follow me :-)
