We were traveling from Margaret River to Albany, and it would have been a tiring 5-hour drive had we not stopped here. We were glad that we did! It was a really good break from the real world, and we got down to some real kickass cooking on the gas barbecue. We got to see some wild kangaroos hopping around too!
The rooms were in pristine condition, and we loved the space we had! The views from the windows were spectacular, as we were able to see the inlet from there.
There was a rare power failure in the region on the morning of our departure, and the owners were so nice to send us each a bottle of water in case we didn't have any drinkable water due to the inability to boil water!
I'd highly recommend this place to travelers along the south coast highway. It's a fantastic pit stop to recharge your batteries in the middle of the monstrous journey between Margaret river and Albany.
