Had a great stay here in the king bed chalet! Each unit has nice privacy with a vineyard view. One thing that needs to improve to get a 5-star is their wifi. It is very slow, and drops out frequently; requiring you to re-sign in much too often. That's the only critique though. The units have a fully-equipped kitchenette inside...

Great place, we enjoyed it so much we extended our stay. Its perfect location for several wineries with a couple within easy walking distance and many more a short drive or cycle away. The staff were great and the accommodation was the best we've experienced so far in several trips to the region, we will definitely return.

If I was disappointed, I'd say so... But I wasn't, It is amazing ladies and gentlemen! Location/Outside: The location itself is great, literally in the middle of the Margaret River Wine Region and with varying views of rolling hills or tree-lined vineyards for almost all rooms. You can get to most attractions, wineries, beaches within minutes. In saying that, it...

Willy Bay resort is literally perfect! Our studio chalet was spotless and very luxurious with the most comfortable king bed. It's so well equipped with high end appliances and all the kitchenware you could need, which is something I always find lacking in other holiday rentals. Only tip is bring your own olive oil, condiments etc. as we forgot and...

This was our second stay, the first being several years ago prior to the more recent addition of some new 'chalet apartments' (their words) and an impressive function venue.
