Loved the peaceful rural setting and the quaintness / romantic room we were in. So quiet. It was lovely. We had a room with a spa however we did not utilise this as it was quite small. It would also have been great to have had a window of sorts in the bathroom from which the beautiful surrounds could be incorporated some more into the accommodation. Host - John was excellent. Very helpful, very friendly and very accommodating. Thanks John!

Rip off

Pros: The young labrador pet was the one and only good thing about this property
We spent 2 nights in chalet 31 at $150 per night. This accomodation is ultra basic and below the standard of anywhere ive stayed in southern WA. The kitchen was very poorly equipped, there was no bread knife so we had to cut a loaf of bread with a blunt steak knife. There was no egg flip so forget about cooking eggs. The kitchen was so small there wasnt even a single draw. We had to crawl around on the floor to get the cutlery which was in a plastic crate. There was no proper cooktop, just a small freestanding electric oven with 2 rusty electric hotplates attached to the top. Heating was provided by an ancient rusty gas radiator with a worn out fan that made the whole thing vibrate noisily. The heater had to overcome a permanently open vent in the ceiling through which cold air flowed constantly. The bathroom had a tiny dark shower enclosure and only one small shelf to put toiletries. I had to leave my stuff on the floor so my partner could at least put hers somewhere. 2 of the window blinds werent working so I had to fix them. The floorplan was tiny with cheap cane and metal furniture that looked 1970s ish. The only sofa was jammed in a tiny space under the stairs so only one person could sit on it at a time unless you pulled it out into the passageway blocking movement through the living space. The timber floors throughout had weak joists so they creaked at night waking up anybody trying to sleep. The tap water was a rich brown colour from tannin. You be the judge.

climbing time

Pros: good location, open views
Location: Close to mountain walks, various levels of difficulty. Some a real challenge, others a very pleasant walk with bit of climbing. Close to Albany.
centrally located between Porongorups and close to Stirling Ranges. We climbed one per day, even the 4 and 7 year olds.
