We've just returned from three nights staying in one of the railway carriages at Dunsborough. We loved it!! Interestingly, a lot of the other reviews seem to focus on it being a little run down and in need of work. Personally, I think they are missing the point of this place... it's rustic... it's in the middle of the countryside... More

Just returned from 5 days in Cottage 2 and totally agree with others, the setting is peaceful and lovely to be able to take your dog but before we even went inside noticed the fly screen door did not close and I doubt it had ever been cleaned, the table and chairs outside had never been wiped or unstacked for...

We stayed for 3 nights in Standard Cottage 2. What we liked about it: 1. peaceful surroundings. you can hear the rustling of the leaves when the wind blows. you can barely hear the sound of the cars on the roadside 2. modern kitchen faciltiies --whirlpool fridge, microwave oven, scanpan pots and pans. cutlery and crockery are matching (i've been...

We had a wonderful few days in Dunsborough in Cottage 2. The cottages are not pristinely clean but this is a good thing as you don't have to worry about bringing mud inside. The cottage was fitted with comfy beds, a large flat screen TV and Scanpan saucepans which were great to cook for. The wood fire is very cosy... More

Absolut brilliant stay. Our first time in a carriage - we loved it. Spacious, clean, in the green, peaceful, BBQ facility just in front. At night, nothing than the wind and some animal noises - heavenly. Our dog was welcome as well. We will go there for our annual leave. Hosts nice and helpful. Great and not expensive - especially...

I have stayed here several times and loved it every time. The kids love to be let free to roam and check out the animals and help with egg collecting and feeding . It can get muddy when wet but the kids loved running around in their rubber boots. I have stayed in the cottages and the rail carriage and... More

From looking at the pictures on the net I expected clean, comfortable, spacious and surrounded by grass. The reality was a run down, old and dirty place in the middle of a sandpit. It was the most expensive place I have paid for and since then have rented a brand new holiday house by the beach for $70 a night... More

As previous reviewer has mentioned, this place is pretty run down in some ways, but we certainly enjoyed our carriage and found it extremely comfortable. We wanted for nothing. Plus to sit outside and watch the roos and listen to the birds was great. There are also some quite new looking cottages suited to families, with laundry etc that look... More

Husband and i stayed two nights in November 2012 in a rail carriage. Weather was lovely during the day but cold at night. Luckly the carriages had aircon as we used it to keep us warm. The facilities are good and clean but they are basic and starting to show a bit of wear and tear but there was nothing... More

This place is special. It is showing some wear and tear round the edges but the novelty makes up for it, times ten. The surroundings could do with a couple of days work with tractor bucket and trailer, and some plantings here and there, but when you are sitting out front on the deck sipping a Margaret River wine and...
