“5 Star Experience”
Reviewed 21 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We stayed at this place for 3 days in April with my two kids. It was a wonderful and tranquil place to be with your family. We stayed at the tea tree chalet. It had a lovely spa and a sauna in the balcony with a million dollar view. It was so relaxing looking at the view and sitting in the spa. Colin and his wife were so helpful. Kids had a lot of fun with Alpacas and the Sheep. This place had a serene bridge garden where you can have a meal or play chess game. My kids enjoyed playing chess and running around the huge space.

If you want to get away from the city this is the place to go!!!!!!

“Surpassed all hopes”
Reviewed 23 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

The moment we entered the driveway we felt at ease. Mumbles is peaceful, welcoming and close attention has been given to every detail. The local tranquillity was enhanced by abundant the bird life, the grazing alpacas and the lake. The beds were king size and the music from the in-house radio station suited our tastes perfectly :)
Thanks to the hosts, Rita and Colin, we had a perfect stay. May there be many more!

“The Perfect Getaway”
Reviewed 10 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

The owners were very welcoming and allowed us to check in early, a great start to the perfect weekend away. We stayed in Paperbark and absolutely loved it. All very spacious, comfortable and clean, everything was set up perfectly with everything you could possibly need right there infront of you. Really enjoyed the spa pool next to our bedroom and enjoyed eating down by the small lake. Very happy and highly recommended for a quick getaway just 2.5hr south of Perth.

My husband and I stayed in Paperbark apartment for our honeymoon. The property was absolutely faultless. Beautifully presented, clean, considered. Everything you could think of was provided (great coffee!). Super comfortable king size bed with cozy soft furnishings. Fantastic spa in beautiful setting, enjoyed watching the alpacas at play in the paddock opposite.

Kind and thoughtful hosts welcomed us with a card, rose petals, champagne and chocolates to celebrate our marraige.

Will be back to enjoy Mumbles Stays and the beautiful surrounding countryside.

Modern and beautifully furnished accommodation with quality fittings and equipment throughout. Some very thoughtful touches like chocolates and bubbly on arrival.

A wonderful place to relax, drink good coffee, have a spa or a sauna and play chess in the middle of the lake as the sun goes down.
