Stayed here last weekend and it was amazing. Fantastic cottage that has everything you need! Breakfast cereal, toast, milk, orange juice and a lovely bottle of wine await! It's very comfy, cozy and secluded from other cottages. I'd definitely recommend and will stay here again! I didn't want to leave

Security is less of an issue here than in some parts of the world, however I understand that it takes a little time for some guests to relax into it. I'm glad to see you enjoyed your stay. More

Such a great place to stay. . Quite and peaceful with an abundance of wildlife that arrive at all times night and day. The rooms are really well furnished with all the modern cons you could want. The bed was so comfortable it was hard to drag myself out each day. The great location of this place allows easy access... More

We stayed here for 4 nights with our two children, ages 7 and 10, and really loved the property. The breezes were great for cooling down the rooms in the evenings along with the ceiling fans. Coming from a big city in Asia, it was a nice change to be able to leave open windows, enjoy the fresh air, and... More

Thank you for your comprehensive appraisal of our property. It's true that we offer our own wildlife and that there are usually mobs of kangaroos around the perimeter. It's great to see you got out and about also as there's so much on offer. More

Drove from Perth, travelling time about 3-3.5h. Only 8 cottages available at Bussells Bushland Cottages; and although they are closely scattered within the bushland, the cottage (can speak only of ours) is clean, airy and provide lots of natural light. It offers sufficient space for a family of 5 (we had the family cottage > 1st room with queen bed... More

In summer, guests should open windows and the main door around 4.30pm - when the sun goes down behind the trees and the temperature drops. Then, at night, they should leave the windows open to allow the evening breezes in to cool things down. I know it's hard for some to imagine, however we don't have security issues here. Noises...

Bussells was a great place to stay for families. We stayed for 3 nights which was the minimum stay over the xmas period. A complimentary bottle of Redgate wine was provided - due to length of stay. The property was very clean and provided all kitchen equipment necessary to prepare meals. Also had a bbq. Kids enjoyed watching the local... More

Thank you for your kind comments...it's very pleasing to see that we continue to tick the boxes. In the 14 years we've owned the property, we've made significant improvements and will continue to do so as cash flow permits. Some of these improvements, including the way we treat waste water, won't be seen, whilst returning guests know that we resolved... More

Stayed in these cottages after xmas with friends from uk. Brilliant place! Well located, very clean and tidy and well stocked with kitchen essentials. The breakfast pack provided is a lovely touch, as well as tea and coffee essentials after long tiring drive!

Thank you for bringing your friends to share our bush block and for your very kind comments. When we purchased the property in 2001, we firmly believed that it would appeal (greatly) to international guests, as well as to the many locals who visited year after year. Our natural bush setting, delightful bird life and resident kangaroos all go towards... More

We had a fabulous stay here at Bussells cottages. The cottages are clean, well maintained and in a beautiful setting. Our kids loved going on kangaroo watches every morning and evening....they saw lots and lots of them! There are some lovely walks around the grounds also. It is only a 10 minute drive into Margaret River for shops and restaurants.... More
