The total isolation. I could cook eat drink and dance to my favorite CD’s in front of a fireplace. No one to bother and no one to bother me. Time to think review heal and plan my future. Thanks Tim and Lily

Perfect place to get away for couples. Turned off the phones and just took in the bush while sitting back and enjoying some of the region's wines. Perfect location right in the middle of all the town's, 20min from Busselton, Margaret River and Dunsborough.

We'd like to take credit for the beautiful forest however nature does that all on its own! we are just fortunate to be able to share it with you. Thank you!

Great getaway

Pros: Peaceful, open air environment. Away from the crowds. Sitting in the outdoor spa with a glass of red watching as a couple of 'roos wandered at dusk.
Location: While hidden away, it is pretty close to Margaret River and a lot of the wineries. About half an hour to Yallingup.
We stayed at the wilderness chalet and loved it. Very peaceful and the open air style for the place really invites the bush in (while enjoying all the creature comforts!). The outdoor spa is a brilliant way to wind down after a hard day of wining and dining around Margaret River. The owners, Lily and Tim are lovely people and great to have a chat about recommendations for wineries and restaurants. Loved their two blue heelers.
