Stayed in the lodge. Three families. Twelve in total. Great location for Margaret River. Peaceful. Everything is max an hour away. We found lighting the fire at night and using the games room ideal and the large dining table was great. Went for five nights came home feeling we been away for ten.

Amazingly cosy and warm up, home made bread , beautiful drive to location, absolute serenity, perfect hub for caves and Cape Leeuwin, and friendly, accommodating and prompt staff. We stayed for 2 nights in the Kookaburra Chalet which we essentially used as a Hub for exploring the beautiful region, the chalet is surrounded by beautiful gardens in deep in the... More

We had a two night stay in Blue Wren. The chalet was well equipped with everything we could have wanted. We had a wonderful time - we needed the time to escape from our busy lifestyle and Blue Wren gave us exactly that. It's close to Margaret River but we didn't want to or need to go there or anywhere.... More

My wife and I had a short (2 night) stay at " Kookaburra" chalet and what a lovely experience it was.Firstly let me say if your looking for all the mod cons of a "resort" then this is not the place for you. On the other hand if you're looking for a quiet, secluded getaway then this is definately the... More

Not a great first impression when you drive up to the Chalet (kookaburra) and are greeted with a gazebo in desperate need of some maintenance, along with some very worn and tired looking outdoor furniture. The unit was relatively clean, good linen and a well equipped kitchen, but was certainly let down with worn and dated decor, a washing machine... More

It is unfortunate that Chelsea's response completely contradicts ALL reviews that we have had this year! While Chelsea was correct, we had overlooked the state of the chairs in the gazebo,after a severe winter that included flood damage, they have been immediately replaced. The short power cut was due to high winds and the washing machine had simply not had... More

We have just returned from an absolutely fantastic 4 days at one of the chalets. If you want a relaxing, away from everything break Boranup Forrest Retreat is just fantastic. With absolute fantastic surroundings and a great wood fire what more do you need. Thanks for a great stay and would certainly recommend to my clients and friends.

A beautiful location. Plenty of space in the rooms. Great Fire. The nearby cafe is superb. To get there continue past the front gate a few hundred metres down the track.Cafe closed Mondays. A few minor changes would really make a difference -blankets need replacing big big fluffy doonas, some local maps and ideas for places to visit. eg Contos... More

Thank you for your feedback. Without it, we will not improve or achieve the high standards we aim for! I am glad you enjoyed Boranup overall. I think these nights are just extremely cold, Mark, and it is time to consider electric blankets. This was the first year we needed evaporative air conditioners! Climate change! I believe Mark, our caretaker,... More

I just wanted to thank the owners for a wonderful holiday! We all had an amazing time! The lodge accommodated 10 adults, 4 little kids & 2 babies and we all loved it. It was so nice to get out of the City and relax in beautiful accommodation that is set in stunning scenery. The lodge is gorgeous and homely... More

My daughter found the Boranup Resort online when we were searching for accomodation for Leewin Concert starring Carol King. Booking was easy and I spoke to carol, who was helpful in lots of ways. She texted instructions to the Resort which were easy to follow and the drive in the forest was quite spectacular. The Kookaburra Chalet was spacious, clean... More

We firstly got a really good deal to stay at the lodge this summer. Upon arriving, we realised that the place was bigger than we had expected and was meant for way more than our family of 6. It is a great place for large families to spend time together. Sheila came to greet us on the evening of our... More
