I can't say enough good things about this place. Beautiful grounds- make you feel like you are tucked away in the country but you are so close to town and all the fun activities. Full kitchen and house. Perfect for a family getaway. Friendly staff and lots of nature and fantastic smelling forest. Will definitely be back!

My girlfriends and I stayed in the Small Family Cottage (cottage 4) for 2 nights in March 2017. It was our first time in Margaret River and we found this accommodation to be suitable for our needs. The location was great - very quiet, dark and private. About 5-8 minute drive into the main town. There were 2 bedrooms, one...

Hi Celine Being a true rural retreat, water is pumped from our soak, treated, stored then gravity-fed to the cottages. There will, therefore, be some tricky moments. A small price to pay for holidaying in a bushland setting. I'm delighted that you and your friends enjoyed your stay and we look forward to your return.

Had a great 3 days staying here. Our two kids, 3 and 1, loved the outdoors and being able to go outside to spot birds and kangaroos. Great location close to Margaret River and local attractions, cottages have all the basic amenities needed to make the holidays enjoyable, they are really clean and well maintained, as well as being nicely...

Our complimentary "starter" breakfast is suited to adults and children, it's true; and we have an expectation that parents will cater to the needs of infants. Great to hear you enjoyed your stay.

Thank you very much for organising such a private cottage for us. We were very impressed with such a comfortable, modern and clean cottage. We appreciated the quality kitchen and the beautiful bathroom. We loved every single moment in the cottage. The welcome breakfast pack and wine were deeply appreciated. We stayed at cottage 8. Im very grateful to the...

Is it any wonder that our guests return over and over again when their experiences are as you've described. Too few of our guests take the opportunity to get our after dark, to enjoy the walk trails and the star-lit skies. Maybe more will if they read of your experience. Thank you and we look forward to receiving you and...

We had our 3rd visit here and found the same peaceful cottages (8 in all) each set in its own little bit of bush for privacy. Well appointed with everything you could possible need for a comfortable stay. We walked in the bush and saw many kangaroos and a ring neck parrot pair came to our veranda for a quick...

Many thanks for your kind comments and I'm delightful to hear that you are returning guests. We do get many, of course, because they love the natural experience and look forward to seeing the improvements that we've made since the last time. You have noted that we've installed air-conditioning, which could only be undertaken after an upgrade to power supplies...

We spent 6 nights here and it was not enough. This was a return visit having stayed here 6 years ago on our last visit to Australia. We thought it great then, hence the return visit but this time it was even better. The cottages have been refurbished and are brighter and more comfortable. Kitchen equipment is excellent and vey...

Thank you very much Beryl and I'm sure Gail will be thrilled to hear such positive comments. In fact, I'm sure you would have been very surprised on entering the property and cottages as we've done a huge amount since your visit 6 years ago. We've improved signage, sealed the 600 metre entry driveway, completely gutted and refitted the cottages...

I don't think anyone could be disappointed with this place, the cottages are well appointed and extremely comfortable. We had my elderly mum with us and 3 young grandsons and we had a very enjoyable stay. The cottages are very conveniently located for exploring the surrounding area, great to return to in the evening time to watch the antics of...

The property is positioned well for access to both Margaret River and the beaches, caves, wineries in the local area. The cottage was in good condition and clean and had everything we needed to self cater if we wanted. Staff we very friendly and accommodating of our needs with no fuss. Wifi access was good.

We spent 5 days at Bussels in mid December with our two children (aged 8 and 10) and loved every minute of our stay. The cottage itself was cozy had everything we need needed for a very comfortable stay. Each cottage was well spaced from the other cottages to ensure privacy. We ate all our meals outside on the little...

It's so pleasing to hear of families strolling along our walk trails as it takes you (quickly) into tall timber and unspoiled Australian bush. Thank you for your kind comments and we do look forward to having you return.

Peace and quiet is what you get when you come here. There is no internet (or at least very poor) onsite until you get to the end of the driveway, but you don't need it. Plenty of wineries and things to do within a short drive to keep you busy for days. The cottage was great, clean, cooled by fans,...

Thanks Darryl for spending your honeymoon with us. You may join the long list of guests who visited as youngsters and have since returned with children and even (in some instances) with grandchildren. And when you visit next, you will see that we've installed air-conditioning as a further upgrade to the cottages.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our 8 rammed-earth cottages are fully self-contained, with each having 2 bedrooms (see note), fully-equipped kitchen, living room and shared bathroom. Cottages are randomly scattered on our 20 hectare (50 acre) bush block and we're within easy driving (5kms) distance of Margaret River township, beaches, wineries, cafes, restaurants, shops and the region's best tourist features. All cottages have been completely refurbished in recent years, following which we were awarded a 4-star rating by AAA. Note: Our lead-in tariffs are for 1 or 2 persons occupying 1 bedroom. If guests wish to use the 2nd bedroom, we charge an extra bed fee in order to cover the additional costs of linen and cleaning. ... more   less
