My husband and I had a lovely few nights at Gilgara. Angus was a perfect host - providing relevant information on the area as needed, we enjoyed his tips regarding seeing a great sunset, stingrays and lunch options. The house was cool but when I asked for a blanket to sit on the chair in the evening Angus provided two... More

The villas/self contained were cold and wholly uninviting. Air-conditioning did remedy the chilly room but not the floor under foot - I didn't bring my Ugg boots... Concrete walls, stone floors and floor to ceiling glass which means.... no proper window coverings. That's fine until the neighbour's light shines into your bedroom until midnight. Guests are provided with eye shades,... More

Dear Monique W, thanks for your review. I want to point out one detail, the Gilgara Garden Suite Villas all come with a fully equipped kitchenette with a fridge, hot plate, microwave, kettle, toaster, cooking utensils, crockery, glasses, and cutlery. We also provide complimentary tea, coffee, hot chocolate and sugar in the garden suite villas. Essentially, the Garden Suite Villas... More

This is defiantly my number one in places to stay in WA, I cannot recommend Gilgara enough. The elegant decor is fresh and fabulous, the house wouldn't look out of place in a top interiors magazine. The quite setting and extremely comfortable beds mean you get a wonderful nights sleep. I relax the minute we arrive ! Angus is a... More

Angus welcomed us upon our arrival. Extremely generous with his knowledge and time we instantly felt at 'home'. The property grounds are peaceful and well kept. We choose to stay in one of the garden suites. The room was very spacious and well furnished. The spa bath was a great addition and waking up to the birds each morning was... More

My partner and I have just returned from a 5 night stay at Gilgara Retreat. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Margaret River and our choice of accomodation added to that massively. We stayed in the house rather than the studios and were lucky enough to arrive at a fairly quiet period between busy weekends, so had the luxury of... More

Arrived at Gilgara after 7 days in an upmarket apartment in Perth and were a little apprehensive. Angus made us really welcome and could not do enough for us during our stay. We stayed in a garden suite and can thoroughly recommend them. Comfortable and clean and with everything that we needed. Lovely tranquil and quiet setting. Angus pointed us... More

This place has tremendous atmosphere, and is tastefully if minimally decorated the main house is olde world whereas the garden suites are contemporary. Angus went out of his way to be of assistance as I do not drive in an area which normally requires a car. The gardens are beautiful with expansive vistas ideal for functions or receptions. Breakfast fresh... More

This beautiful old homestead and adjoining garden suites provided us with a perfect base to explore the many attractions of this region. The setting was beautiful, with the large glass windows of our studio looking out on large eucalypts and lovely garden. Facilities in the room were good- large bathroom with spa, separate sleeping area- clever storage and comfy bedding... More
