We just came back from Margaret River and really enjoyed our night at Willy Bay Resort. We stayed in a new room overlooking the vineyard which was very relaxing... As reviews have said it is self contained. We picked up provisions in Margaret River and enjoyed some wine from our tastings on the deck overlooking the vineyard. Appliances are great... More

I was amazed by the stunning views of the lake and surrounding bushland. The vines were bare at this time of year but that's just the season. The birds singing and the Kangaroos roaming around in the mornings is just magical. The chalet was so well appointed, full kitchen, laundry, spa bath, massive TV, dining suite and lounge suite, everything... More

A hidden secret I think. We last stayed bout 8 years ago and it still has its charm. We booked at last minute and had a choice of chalets, reception even showed us both when we arrived. We chose the lake view chalet over the vine view. Both would be great but I love overlooking water. Kids stayed free so... More

Checking in on a rainy winter afternoon seemed the perfect setting to enjoy this little slice of the awesome Margaret River Region. My unit was spot on - in terms of size, spaces, amenities (and appliances) perspectives to indulge yourself. I was only able to spend one night, but it brought back feelings and experiences reminiscent of many wonderful stays... More

What a gem. We had a chalet overlooking the bush. There are 24 chalets in total and the choice of view is all yours. Sitting outside at sunset, sipping wine, we listened to the kookaburrus, watched the grazing kangaroos, glimpsed the scuttling rabbits and just breathed in the beautiful fresh air. It was an absolutely delightful place. The lake was... More

We took this trip to get away from hectic lives from working in the airline industry. What a beautiful spot with fantastic service. Everything was perfect from booking online, to arriving at the new check in area. We went to our chalet from the map provided which was very easy to find. We could not stop saying WOW. The chalet...

From making the booking to check out we received the most courteous, helpful and friendly service from Kylie, Wendy and Lisa. The chalets are gorgeous, fully self contained and spotless. The beds and linen are heavenly. The bathrooms are luxurious. Even the 'old' ones are stunning so don't be worried about choosing one of those if that is all that... More

I spent 1 night at this resort with my Mum and Grandmother to celebrate my Mum's 50th birthday. All of the chalets are spread out around the property, some with lake views and some with forest views. We stayed in a two bedroom chalet with a forest view. The chalets were absolutely immaculate, everything was spotless and in very good... More

We booked Willy Bay for a recent family holiday after reading favourable reviews on Trip Advisor, and were not disappointed. Our 2 bedroom (2 queen beds) 'rammed earth cabin' was relatively new, clean and well appointed, ideal for a family of 4. We had views over the dam, but you could also select views over the vines or alternatively the... More

Nice clean studio ut certainly not a resort. A large area of land that has not been landscaped or beautified in any way. Several dual units dumped in the paddocks . There are NO amenities at this accomodation so make sure you go with supplies. It is a 30 minute drive to Margaret River town and as we found out... More
