Willy Bay is undergoing some upgrading works but that didnt affect our stay as we were out mostly in the day. We chose the Forest View chalet which the furthest away but love the privacy and peacefulness of it. Birds singing in the mornings, rustling of the Karri trees, just so serene..
Only a small hiccup when we arrived on a Sunday, we couldnt open the keylock code for the chalet but luckily a staff was around and gave us a spare key.
This is one of the most comfortable stays we had. There's a fireplace, kitchen with microwave and oven, washer & dryer (with laundry powder too!) outdoor griller, jacuzzi tub, heater lights in the bathroom so u dont shiver after a shower or soak.... every detail is so THOUGHTFUL.
Was a shame we didnt really get to spend more time in the chalets as we were out early mornings to explore MR and back in the evening when its dark... (driving in dark was quite scary, gotta turn on your high beam lights as the route to Willy Bay is pretty dark at night and gotta keep a lookout for animals too)
