This is the second year we have had a short break at Yelverton and we are looking forward to our next visit already. For a family of four, 'Sheoak" is a wonderful chalet - two double bedrooms, generous living/dining area and a lovely patio/barbecue area with your own hot tub. The shower/bathroom area is a little small/odd but the quirky feel adds to the charm, I think. The accommodation is spacious and clean and the owners are relaxed, making you feel at home - even providing a few welcoming groceries. Although, to be honest, being in Margaret River we ate out for all our meals, apart from a couple of snacks.

The chalet is also stocked with tv, dvd, lots of dvd's and books, information about the local area and wildlife, toys for the kids, fully equiped kitchen - it's all there.

The wildlife here is a real joy, feeding the kangaroos during the daytime and seeing creatures such as bandicoots, possums and woylies after the sun has gone down - the woylies in particulr are a real treat. Like cute fat rats who bounce about like kangaroos - timid but will come close if you are quiet and patient.

Can't find fault, love the place - many thanks to the owners for such a well planned retreat!

We stayed in a two bed chalet for two nights in early April 2013. The owners, Joy and Simon, were very welcoming and helpful from the start. The chalet was well appointed and very clean, with really comfortable beds. Everything had been thought of, from child's toys, to washing powder, games, books and masses of local info. The outdoor spa is a must!
But it is the wildlife that steals the show. Woylies, possums, kangaroos, birds and bandicoots come up to the chalet in the early evening and are very calm and friendly if you are. The possums and kangaroos will eat fruits and the feed provided straight from your hand.
It is a fantastic place, in a lovey park. The chalets are very private too.

We had a lovely relaxing getaway. It was a privilege to get so close to wildlife. We had close encounters with kangaroos, woylies and possums. The accommodation was really nice, very clean and comfortable. It was in a good location as it allowed us to explore the area- it was not too far from Dunsborough or Margaret River (or the many wineries in the area!).

Stayed for 3 nights 30th Jan - 2nd Feb in Fern Chalet. Loved it. From the moment we arrived we relaxed and enjoyed every minute of the animals, the tranquility, the spacious chalet, the spa under the stars. We went for a walk around the property which was well signed and a nice way to see inside the bushland. Dont leave the animal food containers out!! We did and they were taken by the naugty kangeroos!! Will be suggesting this to all my friends and family.

We had a wonderful stay, what a perfect location. The wildlife was amazing, kangaroos and possums coming up to the chalet every night and so friendly. The hospitality was excellent, what more can yo say about the home made bread other than delicious. Planning a return visit in the in the winter for a chill out.

Our stay at Yelverton Brook Eco Spa Retreat was nothing short of perfect. We went for two days and ended up staying an extra day we were enjoying the surroundings so much. Joy and Simon are the perfect hosts, with freshly cooked bread on arrival which was absolutely delicious and wonderful cabins that leave you wanting for nothing,including an outdoor spa which was the perfect place to relax an watch the stars
If you are looking for that perfect place to get away and relax with the wildlife that come to visit you at night and during the day then Yelverton Brook Eco Spa Retreat is certainly the place to be.
Thank you Joy and Simon for a wonderful three days and congratulations for what you are doing for the environment and the preservation of our precious wildlife. we will certainly be back.
