Lorraine and Richard are warm, genuine hosts. We stayed at Merribrook for 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Our family of 4 fitted into the villa with ease and, once we turned on the heaters, we were cosy and content. Breakfasts were fantastic with a really good variety of fruits, cereals, breads and cakes plus cooked options. Richard was very... More

We recently stayed at this property for 3 nights. From the minute we arrived, Richard welcomed us into his property in a professional but warm way. He has the perfect mix of being around but 'not being around' so it feels like you are on your own but if you need something he is there in a flash. The breakfasts... More

We were looking for a quiet, winter retreat to celebrate our 19th wedding anniversary, leaving our kids at home with Granny. A little deterred by prices, we were won over by the thought of a Swedish sauna under the trees and we weren't disappointed!! Everything about Merribrook was a delight and we will definitely be returning, hopefully with friends, in... More

We had a lovely two night stay at this retreat and it was just wonderful! The walking trail is so peaceful, and the spa and sauna facilities were just marvellous! The complimentary breakfast was outstanding, a full table of choices and cooked options! The peach and banana bread was divine! Our hosts were so accommodating and friendly and made us... More

Thank you Lorraine and Richard for a perfect, tranquil break from the daily grind. No distractions from nature and bird calls. No ringing phones, blaring music or noisy crowds. Just what the Doctor ordered. The district offers ample wining and dining options.

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
