We came for the yearly Truffle Festival but we will be revisiting just to spent more time in the company of Yvonne and Greg and to re-live the sense of sheer relaxation found within the retreat. My husband and I are frequent international travellers and we know how rare this gem is. We would have liked to keep the secret... More

Yvonne and Greg run a fabulous house with cottages in the garden. Only 20 minutes from Perth airport so a great place to relax. Beautiful gardens with lovely pool. You can walk in the National park via their back door. The best dogs ever and v friendly. Looking forward to returning

A very nice place in a lovely bush setting, close to Perth. So tranquil! Though I would have to say that it's probably not quite as luxurious as it appears on the website and I think probably a little overpriced. The hosts were very accomodating indeed and the service was very good. We found that it was a little odd... More

Nestled in bushland I fell in love with this place as soon as we entered the gates. Upon arrival we were greeted with a welcome platter of nibbles and a bottle of champagne. Our cottage was absolutely gorgeous and spaceous. Definately a place to go if you want to leave the city life behind you for a few days. Delicious... More

We have stayed at this beautiful place twice for a getaway weekend of luxury and relaxation.The cottages and the lodge are beautifully presented and oh so comfortable and Yvonne and Greg are warm and welcoming hosts - whose breakfasts are sublime! The surrounding bushland on and off the property is truly beautiful - and a long walk is both a... More

Luxury retreat by name, to the core! I now realise how apt a name it is. From the minute I drove through the gates of Core, I felt my stress levels dissipate and my inner peace take over. It's less than an hour's drive from Perth, but a million miles away in terms of its calming, restorative qualities. There's 17... More

I arrived at this incredibly beautiful place a complete wreck; exhausted, over worked, stressed out. My days were filled with long walks, massage, floating idly in a beautiful pool ... a number of exercises that gently relaxed my body and renewed my spirit. My room - my cottage - was lovely A wonderful place to slip away for an afternoon... More

My husband and I were in need of some rural tranquillity but time and my lack of health meant we could not travel far. After hours on the computer I was amazed to find the Core Luxury Retreat which was only an hour from home and still in the Perth CBD. Right from my phone call to Yvonne I realized... More
