Willy Bay Resort was the most perfect venue for my son and daughter in laws wedding. The accommodation is 5 star and fantastic for allowing family and friends to enjoy the experience without travelling. All staff were happy to go out of their way to ensure a magic stay and events coordinator Kylie was the most professional person I've worked...

Hi Fish, We were so pleased to be involved in your son and daughter in laws wedding. All of your family and friends were a delight to meet and it was a wonderful wedding to be part of. We agree Kylee is a superstar Events Manager! -The Willy Bay Team

Willy Bay Resort is set in a beautiful location, with views of lakes and vineyards. The studio chalet we stayed at was pristine, modern, spacious and elegant. The chalet was fully equipped with a deep spa bath and state of the art amenities (washer, dryer, dishwasher, big screen tv, bbq). Our two night stay was very relaxing and comfortable!

Cannot fault the accommodation at Willy Bay. All the settings and facilities are top notch and great for a luxurious base while visiting Margaret River or to stay in and get away from it all. Thanks for making the trip enjoyable for our families, the joint rooms for travelling families is a great idea.

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...
