We had the most wonderful stay for 5 nights in November 2013. While choosing our accommodation in Margaret River, I was looking for a tranquil place surrounded by nature yet not too remote. I was so happy when we finally arrived at Merribrook. Although there are just a handful of cottages, the estate is very big and the cottages are... More

Thank you Lorraine & Richard! We had the most AMAZING honeymoon!!! We couldn't have stayed at a more beautiful, peaceful, special place! We stayed here at the lake house 3 nights in June. It was the perfect place for a honey moon. Lorraine and Richard (Owners) were absolutely lovely and so accommodating! The breakfast was fantastic! The rooms were fantastic!... More

Merribrook is a really very nice owner run retreat beautifully positioned for the wine route, beaches and cliff walks. The owners are welcoming, friendly and helpful and the breakfasts are delicious. The setting around a lake is lovely and the accommodation is very comfortable. There are also lovely walks within the retreat grounds. Instead of driving into Margaret River for... More

My friends and i were in m.river to attend a wedding. I chose Merribrook because it was conveniently located (to the wedding) but it turned out to be much more than I expected - it was comfort nestled in tranquility. A relaxing swim in the pool, breakfast lovingly prepared for you... Could not have asked for more. Richard and Lorraine... More

We stayed at Merribrook during Easter and it was the perfect spot to escape to and relax. We woke up each morning to the sound of Kookaburras in the trees, followed by an absolutely delicious breakfast. The cabin itself was comfortable and in great condition, and the location is beautiful and secluded, with a lovely walking track where you encounter... More

You can't help but relax at Merribrook. When you arrive there, you drive down a gently winding road, through the bush, finally arriving at a welcoming garden area. We were greeted by Lorraine, the owner, and Val, the caretaker, and... I can't remember her name, but a beautiful black Great Dane. There's no mobile service at Merribrook, and the internet... More

At first I wasn't so sure. No phone or TV or internet access (accept internet in main building). But the little cottage we stayed in was delightful and spacious. So peaceful, can't hear any traffic, only birds. Far from neighbours. Surrounded by gorgeous bushland. The property is beautifully maintained with lots of wildlife, especially a large variety of birds and... More

Stayed in cottage number 7 over the weekend. On arrival was greeted by Odette who was extremely welcoming, and went through the property amenities in detail. The cottage we stayed in was just lovely. Contained all of the facilities needed when staying off the beaten track. Set in a beautiful secluded part of the world with absolute privacy from other... More

Spent two nights here in March. Great relaxing location with the great owners who were very helpful. Lovely grounds and very comfortable chalet. I especially liked being able to cook ourselves. Centrally located within the great wine district. overall a great stay.
