Property's Favorite Review
We had been warned not to expect much in Denham, but this property brought the best out of the experience! Beautiful setting looking across natural scrubland out to the sea , an idyllic spot to enjoy glorious sunsets. The attention to detail in the furnishing of the rooms was impeccable, and the facilities available for self-catering were fabulous! The provision of a cook-your-own breakfast allowed for flexibility and independence. This had everything you would get in a well-rated hotel with value added in the great host and hostess, semi-private entertainment area, including a fabulous hot spa looking out over the ocean. Highly recommended!

We visited On the Deck as part of our honeymoon around Australia visiting from the UK. Phil and Kerrie were great hosts and looked after us throughout our stay. The highlight of our stay was sitting in the brand new hot tub with a glass of champagne enjoying an amazing panoramic view which encompassed a wonderful sunset, glittering sea and kangaroos milling around in front of the deck. Thank you Phil and Kerrie for a fantastic experience its something we will never forget!

We stayed in the Blue Room for 3 nights as part of a 2 week getway to the North West. We loved the accommodation and facilities, and Denham itself. Phil and Kerrie took time to make us feel welcome and gave great advice on what to do, see and where to eat! It was a pleasure being in their company.

We stayed in the upstairs blue room for a couple of nights. This was definitely the classiest B&B stay we ever experienced. There is a hot spa on the top deck overlooking the ocean and national park, a fully equipped outdoor kitchen for cooking your breakfast and dinner, a shower cubicle with massage jets and memory foam mattresses and pillows!! Hosts Phil and Kerrie moved to Denham from one of the big cities and know a thing or two (or three) about upmarket lifestyle and paying attention to details. They will make sure your stay with them will be as enjoyable and informative as possible.

We originally booked for May 2021, but twice had to postpone due to COVID-19 border closures. Phil and Kerrie were helpful and understanding, gave us a credit and kept us informed of our booking status when we booked for date nearly 18 months later when we were finally able to make the trip. When we arrived the room was spacious and very comfortable in a great setting next to bushland frequented by wildlife and with a view out across Little Lagoon and beyond. The breakfast was generous with lots of choices. Phil and Kerrie were friendly and informative hosts who provided lots of information about activities and facilities in the area as well as information about life in Denham. Denham is a great place from which to explore Shark Bay and Monkey Mia. And On the Deck is a great place to stay in Denham.

Phil and Kerrie have created the perfect accommodation for visitors to the beautiful Shark Bay World Heritage Area. The house is perfectly built and positioned, the rooms and facilities are immaculate, sunset from the spa is an unmissable experience but most of all, it is the warm and genuine welcome from the hosts that really makes the stay. From the moment of booking onwards, Phil and Kerrie were warm, friendly and helpful. Our two nights in Shark Bay were perhaps the highlight of our WA trip and On the Deck is so good it puts many much pricier options further up into the NW to shame. Keep up the good work and thanks for your hospitality.

Stayed here on 1 and 2 July 22. Great place to stay. Our hosts, Phil and Kerrie were most attentive and gave us good advice on the local area, Monkey Mia etc. The sunset from the deck is amazing and we were able to enjoy it with other guests on both nights. We had the 'Green Room', with its self-contained alfresco area. Location is good - only a few minutes from the centre of town. Thanks, Phil and Kerrie for a great experience.

We had 3 nights at On-The-Deck and we were very glad we chose this place. Phil & Kerry were excellent in all aspects - welcoming us; advising what to do and where to go. The room had all the facilities we needed. There is a full size communal kitchen for guests, and Phil provided us with whatever we needed for breakfast so that we could cook it ourselves when we wanted. We could use the kitchen for any other cooking we wanted. Even nice-maker. Great views from the balcony - spectacular sunsets Highly recommended

We loved On the Deck. Right on the edge of Denham overlooking sea and bush but an easy downhill walk to the seafront. We stayed in the Yellow room on the first floor, very comfortable and clean. Breakfast items chosen the day before to cook yourself on the deck outside the room. Great idea! Wonderful safari lodge feel when the kangaroos and emus come out of the bush at dusk to eat carrots provided by the hosts. Phil and Kerry really go the extra mile to make you enjoy your stay. Kerry even went shopping for prawns and scallops for us to cook when we couldn't make it to the store. Would definitely recommend staying here!
