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.

We stay here every year for the Leeuwin concert and it gets better everytime. It is a slice of heaven when you drive down into the valley and mobile phone coverage ends and you are one with nature. Our clients thoroughly enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and the great hospitality that Lorraine and Richard show their guests. Nothing is too hard.... More

Perfect retreat at the end of our month long visit to Australia. The grounds are amazing with a lovely 3k walk around the reserve, meeting lots of Kangaroos up close. Easy access to the amazing wineries in the region. Breakfast was lovely, served on the terrace over looking the lake, just perfect. Chalet very comfortable and well equipped, remember to... More

We stayed in the Lake House villa and it was absolutely wonderful. There are enormous windows looking out on the surrounding property, with plenty of privacy for the outdoor spa and shower. Loved walking through the kangaroo-filled bush to the lovely breakfast at the main house. Lorraine helped streamline our stay by recommending and organising our tours before we arrived.
