I booked three nights at the Willy Bay Resort to celebrate my boyfriends 30th birthday. When looking for somewhere to stay I had two criteria, luxery self catering accomadation in a natural settling. Well Willy Bay certainly ticked both of those boxes (and more). It was awesome. We stayed in Chalet 7 with panoramic views over the lake and vines. Breathtaking. For three days we didn't see or hear another person while at the resort. You are in the heart of beautiful bushland.We spent most nights in front of the log effect gas fire with a nice bottle of red.
The chalet it self was beaufifully decorated with all mod cons. The chalet was spotless and everything was well maintained. Comfortable beds and crisp white linen.The hosts have made life easy by providing tea, coffee, cling film etc. As Metricup is about 20 mins from Margaret River I would recommend stocking up on breakfast bits etc before you arrive.
We will definitly be back should we get the chance to visit the South West again!
