Initially apprehensive about staying in the midst of nature, my urban city kids were quickly won over by the fantastic amenities, the generous size of the chalet, beautiful and open view through the windows and how ridiculously spick and span everything was. Everything in the house was spotless and looked brand new. We had a nice chat with the owner who called on us on our last night there and was really helpful with tips on where to get some last minute shopping.
It's entirely self sufficient with laundry facilities and fully equipped kitchen, yet warm and cosy to come back to every evening. We spotted lots of colourful birds and a few curious kangeroos which was such a nice sight after a full day of activities out. We stayed at Chalet 3 which was next to a pretty dam. The location is great...about 5-10 mins drive from Margaret River city centre so sufficiently removed from the touristy hub yet still central enough to get around with ease. From there, it was an easy drive to the activities we've planned: Rosa Brooks for horse riding and Augusta for whale watching, stopping enroute to the several farms/shops to buy fresh produce, chocolates, essential oils etc.
The chalets were adequately spaced between themselves. So really helps when you have noisy children. We couldn't hear anything coming from the other two chalets and we hoped they also didn't get a share of my son's occasional fussing and hollering! It is pitch dark at night so it's comforting to know there are other human beings around.
Will definitely stay here again. A serene, beautifully maintained home away from home.
