Reviewed 21 October 2008

We are always a little suspicious when we see glowing reviews of a property, so we'll downplay this one by saying we had a magnificent (rather than stupendous) four-day stay at Yelverton. It is set in a nature preserve so the animal life is plentiful and much in evidence. The kangaroos are a bit too food-needy, but cute nonetheless. But what we really loved was the quiet, the well-appointed self-contained chalets and the price was pretty reasonable for what you got. This one is a winner! And very proximate to the Margaret River wine country, so lots of wineries are within 10-20 minute driving distance. This place is special and we strongly recommend it.

Regarding the "dislike comment" about owners out of town, we were on a well deserved camping holiday up north for the month preceding the guests holiday at Yelverton Brook so some tardy responses to our clients email questions did happen, we apoligise.
We like to leave our guests in privacy in their spa chalet but with the new office now in operation, the reception area has improved.

WOW!!! What can I say... a rare find, magical, simply awesome! Imagine being greeted by kangaroos at the verandah, feeding them out of your hands. One of them even followed us into the chalet, sending my little daughter into squeals of delight. The possum and the baby of its back was equally fascinating and we had so much fun watching the wildlife that it was hard to concentrate on our barbeque dinner. The chalet was very well equipped and had everything you could possibly need. Coming from Singapore, we were not used to the cold nights and we therefore fully appreciate the reverse cycle air-conditioning and the heated bathroom floor after stepping out of the outdoor spa. Rod (who was helping out the owners Simon and Joy) was ever so helpful and did not seem to mind our thousand and one questions before or during our stay. It was hard dragging ourselves away in the morning. Highly recommended.

Flew to Perth for a wedding so added a few days to see Margaret River. Were looking for something quiet and 'rural' to be a good base for the wineries and beaches. Yelverton Brook was perfect. Set about 1 mile off the main North/South road in a large wood, each chalet is barely visible from the next, and all are located among the trees. The chalet we stayed in was clean, with a milk/butter etc welcome in the fridge and freshly baked loaf from the proprietor that was handed over with the keys!
The decor is a wee bit on the chintzy side, but the bed was very comfortable (and we are very fussy about beds - bad backs etc), the shower had good flow, there was a TV, DVD player, HiFi and log fire. However, the best bit happens in the garden.
On the fridge are jars of Kangaroo, Possum and Bandicoot food. If you put these out at dusk, you will be rewarded with numerous visitors during the evening. We had, at one point, 8 kangaroos on the lawn, closely followed by bandicoots, possums and a rarer animal called a Wyoly <sp?>. In the day, beautiful parrots come to feed. The other great bit about the garden is the 6-seater hot tub - sitting in that with a bottle of fizz watching the shooting stars - fantastic!
Thoroughly recommend this to families with children - its less than 30 minutes from many vineyards and great beaches.

One of the most amazing places I have been.

The peace and tranquility is a great setting for romance or just to get away.

With a beautiful Chalet with all the creature comforts and probably the closest accomodation to the serene Margaret River wine region.

I was sitting in the heated outdoor sppa sipping champagne and thought this place is great and could not get any better then 5 min later I was hand feeding some kangaroos from the back door step....

Have just spent an amazing week at Yelverton Brook - in fact I liked it so much Joy & Simon very kindly put me up for another 2 nights as I couldn't drag myself away. Its a magical place with loads of friendly kangaroos, possums, parrots, bandicoots & other creatures all wanting to be your friend.

Joy & Simon are the nicest people you could wish to meet and went out of there way to make me feel comfortable & at home after the friend I was staying with had to leave mid way through the week. The chalets are huge, super clean & have everything you could possibly need. The outdoor spa was fantastic - words can't describe how amazing it is to lay in a hot spa with a glass of wine admiring the millions of stars.

There is so much to do & see around the area and everywhere I went I was struck by the friendliness of everyone.

The whole area is so beautiful & clean & generally pretty awe inspiring. I'll definitely be returning when I get the chance.

Thank you both for an amazing time

This is one of the places you really want to keep going back to. There are only 5 chalets, separated from each other, so total privacy. Huge outdoor spas ready whenever you feel like one, day or night for each chalet. Joy and Simon the owners also provide fresh cooked bread, eggs etc for breakfast. The main attraction are the animals, birds galore, woylies an endangered species, kangaroos and joeys, possums etc. The animals are so tame you can pet to your hearts content, and if you dont shut the door to the chalet will follow you inside. The owners even include food for you to feed everyone. This place is a conservation area, the animals roam free within the area, and it has huge fences to keep them safe with the site. It has a/c. heat, bbq, full kitchen, tv everything anyone could want. Give it top rating.
