Pleun and Hennie have created an amazing treasure close to the stirling ranges. All the buildings have been built by their hard work and amazing skills. We stayed in the converted Dakota it was so comfortable and had everything we could want to make our stay enjoyable including books cds dvds and games. The decor is beautiful and everything is...

A most unusual kind of accommodation, and cannot fault what has been done here. Fully restored Dakota DC3. Everything you need is in this plane - kitchen, microwave and cooktop, tv, wonderful wooden decking that's leads into the plane - with views of the Stirling Ranges to enjoy as you sit outside sipping a wine perhaps! Bathroom with shower. A...

4 nights in the Dutch House were wonderful. After early morning walks in the Stirling Ranges, this was the perfect place to come back to relax. With a beautiful and interesting house to stay in, with great views over the ranges, and every little detail thought of, we could not have been happier. The windmill and plane on site are...

The Owner Pleun has just rebuilt a DC3 Dakota and fitted it out as luxury accommodation. It comprises kitchen, sleeping area, shower room and cockpit with all working instruments. We stayed in it for two nights looking out at the peace and quiet of the Stirling Ranges and the night sky full of stars. Hennie, Pleun's wife is a great...

We stayed in the Winery Quarters. The accommodation was a gift for a birthday to my husband, so we arrived not knowing what to expect. Hennie warmly greeted us and showed us to our accommodation which was so well appointed with everything we needed. The decor is quirky but very tasteful. We looked at all the accommodation and they are...

This is the second time we have stayed in this beautiful part of the world. The owners are so kind and thoughtful. Their homes are so cute and clean. It is near the Stirling Range National Park so can hike many terrific mountains.

This place is beautiful and so relaxing because it is off the beaten track. I stayed with friends who had been here before and recommended it. The couple who have built and furnished these rooms, cottages have given them a unique character. We stayed in the Dutch house with all the pig ornaments (there were 6 of us, so 4...

Booked at the Lily for 2 nights with our teenage daughter. Stayed in the Miller's quarters. The whole experience was fantastic. Stunning views to the Porongurups and surrounding area. The self contained accommodation offered everything we needed. Games, music and books in the room added to the relaxed nature of the experience. Hosts Pleun and Henne are so welcoming and...

What an absolutely beautiful place to stay! We stayed in the Dutch Cottage. So much character and charm. The attention to detail is a credit to Hennie and Pluen. The accommodation was spotlessly clean, warm, comfortable and well appointed. Perfectly located for exploring the Stirling Ranges. I would highly recommend you stay here.
