Kerriley Park Farmstay
Reviewed 5 December 2011

My family spent 2 nights at the farm and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Yes, the cabins are a bit dated, but all the furnishings and equipment were in good working conditions. We particularly liked the little touches, such as having toys in the cabin, trampoline in the playground etc. Animal feeding was a delight and the kids had a great time collecting eggs, cuddling rabbits and patting the joey. The farm is pretty well located, with easy access to many sites in Margaret River. Farmer Pete is a really warm fella, always helpful and a great host. Overall its a great place to stay if you have kids.

We were supposed to stay in the 3 bedroom cottage BUT upgraded to the bungalow as we have 8 adults and 1 infant with us. The host were so accommodating with our requests before the trip and have never look forward to the trip and stay at the farmhouse so much. Had read a bad review earlier on before the trip and it was with so much untruth, really need to see the place for yourself. All that was in the bungalow is everything a family will need to make it so comfortable. The host were nice and beautiful people, so forth-coming and made us felt so welcome. It was bad luck we had a tight schedule and the weather did not make it any better BUT definitely will come back for a longer and a more relax stay. YES, we will come back again, thank you Peter and Rene!

Room Tip: The linens, towels and duvets were basic but clean and comfortable.

We booked a 4 night stay for our family of 5 adults and 2 kids in June. Unfortunately, we weren't quick enough to book the bungalow and had to stay in the 3 bedroom cottage. The animal feeding sessions every morning was nice and our kids really loved carrying the guinea pigs and baby rabbits. Peter and Rene were nice and friendly (until we told Peter we were leaving, that is -- more about this later). However, accommodations left much to be desired. There was one air-conditioner for the whole house. We had to sleep with the bedroom doors opened to try to let some warmth into the room. The BBQ was old. On the first night, the fire actually burned through the gas knob and melted it! We had to stop cooking halfway for fear of an explosion. When we reported it to the management the next morning, they replaced it with a new one by evening. All the furniture in the house were old and dated. And the 3rd bedroom was really 3 single beds stuffed into an entryway. It's the first thing you see when you open the front door to the house. Perhaps coming from a city, we were not so used to limited hot water supply, so to our great surprise, the hot water was completely used up after 1 or 2 persons had their shower. With all these problems, we decided not to end our vacation in Margaret River this way, and informed Peter on the 3rd day that we were leaving the farm. We had only stayed 2 of the 4 nights. Peter did not ask us how we felt or made any attempt to ask for feedback. His immediate response was that he would have to charge us in full and that no refunds or discounts whatsoever was possible. I was rather disappointed with his attitude. It was on this sour note that we left.

8 of us stayed for 3 nights but could have stayed longer. Lucked out and go the newer bungalow which had everything we needed as well as being very conveniently located next to the large open fire which the kids used for toasting marshmallows. The hosts were very welcoming and really involved the kids in the animal feeding.
The farm was only 10 minutes drive to the Bootleg Brewery, Yallingup Maze, Swings and Roundabouts, the Sheep Shearing Shed (highly recommended!) and the Duckstein Brewery.
All up we had a great time and will most definately be back. Thanks Pete and Renee!

a farmstay that truly is a place to holiday together as a family in a peaceful, green, stress-free environment. We came with our 2 young children and couldn't have asked for a better time and facilities. Cots, feeding chairs and a baby bath was provided in a clean and well equipped cottage. The kids loved the personal interaction with the farm animals, the freedom to roam around. In the evenings we sat on our deck outside, surrounded by native bush and sounds, fresh air, a glass of local wine and of course a barbecue dinner. Next time we come, we will make sure it's for longer!

Room Tip: Each cottage is secluded within the native bush, so they are all great.

Me and my family of 5 stayed at Kerriley Park Farmstay during mid June in the Rosella cottage. We couldn't find anything faulty. The cottage was clean, comfortable, everything in working condition, even the stove! And all furniture was in a good condition. Farmer Pete and Rene was the best hosts and even got the kids to kiss a goat, cuddle up with the emus! Wow, what an experience for my kids! They even put their hands in a cows mouth! Where else do you get that? They kept the kids so involved during the animal feeding and my kids can't wait for our next trip down there. As a mother, I can't think that somebody can write such awful reviews about this wonderful place. Are you sure we are talking about the same place? We can absolutely recommend this farmstay to all families wanting this experience. Peter and Rene, we'll see you soon back at Kerriley Park Farmstay. PS: can we please have Rosella cottage again? Thanx

Have just returned from a wonderful stay at Kerriley Park Farmstay. Very relaxing setting and great fun for the children. Farmer Peter made the animal feeding exciting for our children and was more than helpful giving advice on the local fishing spots to keep my husband entertained. He even managed to catch a few which we cooked up on the bbq facilities provided.
The cottage had everything we required. We were warm enough with the reverse cycle aircon and everything was very clean. The cottages are charming and made us feel as though we were really living the farm life! Very cosy.
It is a great place to stay if you have children. There was an adventure playground and lovely walks to take around the farm through the bush. The drive into surrounding towns is not too far so it was easy to take in some extra attractions further affield.
Our stay was everything we expected and more and we found the staff very generous with their care and time. We would definitely return.
