I don't need to repeat all the excellent reviews for this very unique place. It's all true!The views, the kangaroos, the emus, the hospitality, the comfort, the BBQ and the tranquility. So let's focus on what made it even more special for us. Phil and Kerrie's hospitality, our very developed conversations especially learning about the outback and sharing an evening drink or two. Our most favourite thing was going to the local bottle shop for a good bottle of Aussie red, then the local butcher for a couple of fabulous steaks with kebabs for starters, all cooked up for dinner on their BBQ. They even have all the marinades and seasonings too. Just a couple of blocks away is the fish merchant but we ran out of nights as there are a couple of good places to eat in town as well. We have unfinished business here as our stay was so good. We never made it into the hot tub so we will see you again next year.

I came with my parents in this place at the beginning of January and it was such an amazing experience, probably one of the best our life. Effectively, the place is beautiful, you can appreciate the view of the kangaroos, rabbits ... and the host were really kind with us even if we didn't speak a perfect English ... they tried to speak with us during the 3 days spent in this place. Thanks for all on the deck

If you plan to visit shark bay region, it is a must to stay with Phil & Kerrie ... and all „their“ friendly animals visiting them every day. I cannot tell what we loved the most: our friendly, helpful, caring host, the big BBQ outdoor kitchen, the chilling sunset hours with our host on the veranda, the view, the kangaroos, ... already for staying again with Phil & Kerrie I would put Denham always on my list again!

This a fantastic place for accommodation while in Denham, WA. The room large, clean, and quiet. A selection of breakfast choices was offered each day and could be prepared by yourself whenever in the day you wished to eat. It was ideal for us as we went to Monkey Mia early in the morning and came back just before lunch to have our breakfast. The hosts were extremely friendly and accommodating.
