Beautiful relaxing jewel, unique and lightly touched by people. Given the total area under management by the RIA and the logistics, a great State park that is not supported by WA State. The accommodation is as shown, simple, uncrowded, beautifully located, rustic, all within a hop step or jump to a prestine white sand beach, no shoes required!. Ride around... More

Thank goodness for the volunteers , the visitor centre paid staff were appalling. We arrived on Sunday morning & if we didn't know what questions to ask we never would have found out what was available or what was included in our winter package & how it worked. After a second visit to the centre we had about half the... More

Just back from an amazing stay in Rottness at one of the Units at Longreach&Fray Bay. Really impressed with the aminites, the cleaniless, service and the location. Amazing!! The fact that every day I slept listening to the sea and in the morning could walk on the sand beach, the bays just look amazing. Every day I sat on the... More

So, the title of this review is right on point. If you take kids, you'll find yourself allowing them to frolic in beautiful sandy beaches that are reminiscent of the Caribbean or Cancun. Unspoiled coral and beautiful crashing waves with a view of the Indian Ocean... Just unbelievable! The bus is the perfect way to get on and off to... More

We have just returned from a very relaxing holiday from Rottnest. My husband, sons and I stayed at number 225. It was a very Cosy little cabin with all we needed. I was very surprised that the beds were very comfortable, had a flat screen TV and a great heater to keep us warm. Everyone on the island were friendly,... More

Accommodation was simple and basic but gave us everything we needed for a chill out weekend. Toilet and shower are in the back yard which were clean and simple. Plenty of hot water and places to store the bikes. The heritage bungalow has canvas sides and therefore on a windy night can keep you awake with the . I suggest... More

The 3 bedroom unit (506) in Thomson Bay was a great location with a fabulous view. Obviously that is what you pay for, because if you were anywhere else in Aus or overseas, the cleanliness of the accommodation just would not cut it. For $50 a night per person I think a clean toilet, inside and out. Non greasy door... More

Thanks for your feedback following your stay on Rottnest Island. I note your comments about the bungalow that you stayed in which is heritage accommodation dating from the 1920's.
