Friendly staff, great views over the bay. Ive stayed twice i loved it so much. If you are staying in Albany this is the place you must stayed at. The best accomodation in Albany by far, and very well priced. Lots of walking to do on the great track around the bay. Also some play equipment for the kids.

We came here to start the Bibbulmun Track after cycling over from Tassie. We loved our stay here and loved the owners who introduced themselves and bend over backwards to make our stay pleasurable and good. All was perfect to begin with in any case, but still Joe and Annette managed to really impress us with their generosity and kindness.... More

We had a cottage right on the river which could fit 8 people!! Such a surprise that a place can hold so many people. Parents downstairs while us kids were upstairs. So glad there were two TVs, a tip is to bring something that can play DVDs as the top tv doesn't have a DVD player. 6 of us travelling... More

This is by far one of the nicest, cleanest and best located holiday accommodation in Albany. We statyed for 4 days over Easter, and it was amazing. Watching the sunrise over the harbour, while having a coffee was a highlight. It was brilliant. The owners are very caring, and look after you very well. It isn't located to far from... More

This was our 3rd stay at Lilac cottages, Shared cottage 2? with some friends on 2nd visit, and had cottage 3 to ourselves this time. 2 had 2 double bedroom and 2 bathrooms, so was great for sharing. 3 is closer to the water so was more convenient to launch our windsurfers from. It's been recently renovated and tastefully furnished,... More

Stayed for 5 nights over the New Year 2013/14 period. Accompanied by wife, daughter and son-in-law, and two small grand-children. Saw in the New Year standing on the side of the bay, watching the fire-works from the town. This is the perfect place for a family to stay - quiet and far from the noise of the modern world. We...

Over all the cottages are nice, being winter in albany the yards had been let go so the over all attraction of the properties was let down. We found mould in bathroom and on blinds in Kitchen, dust on tops of curtains and on most higher surfaces. The heating was not the best on a really cold night and no... More

We recently visited Albany, WA in August 2013 and were recommended the water front villas as accommodation. The accommodation was perfect for the three adults and two children. A lovely self contained apartment with a generous amount of space. It was well equipped with several TVs and had ample facilities including two toilets which was great with 5 of us... More
