Restful one-bedroom self-contained retreat amidst tall Jarrah trees. Has sitting area, bathtub, and small kitchenette. Also features a unique loft room that could fit 2 children sleeping on futon beds. For really young children, they can use the sofa bed or floor mattress.
The retreat is ideal for a couple seeking some 'quiet' time away; or a small family with young children who would enjoy a simple farm-stay in the woods. You can wake up to a view of tall jarrah and gum trees outside your window. You can take a walk in the property to enjoy the forest therapy. We have some alpacas, 2 sheep, chooks and a friendly dog named Sake.
Guests can do walks on paths in the property, exploring the dams, and boulders. They are not advised to explore areas that is truly bush. There are protected birds and other life forms, that guests are not to harm them. The main house is not accessible to guest, except upon invitation. During the fire season, fires are strictly prohibited.
In the winter time, you may roast some marshmallows over a campfire. Our farm animals are always a delight for everyone.
There's an outdoor spa which can be made available to guests upon request.
You will need your own transport to get to the property. It is one hour's drive south of Perth city, and about 35km from the city of Mandurah. Our nearest town is Pinjarra, which is 17km away. If you are coming from overseas, you will need to hire a car from the airport. The drive is about one hour from the airport. You may not be able to use the GPS to look for the location accurately. Once you have confirmed the booking, I will send you a detailed map and instructions on how to get here.
Respect house rules. No open fires allowed
We would like to meet you, and have a chat and cuppa while you are visiting. But we will also be happy to just show you the premises, and let you have your space. We will definitely want to be available to help you with anything you may need.
I live in the North Dandalup hills (outside of Perth) Western Australia since 1998 with my family. Our children grew up here, but have now all left home, some living overseas.
We are Christians and believed that God had provided this special place in the woods, which we had been using to host friends and associates. We would like to extend this hospitality to the wider global community and we hope you will love this place as much as we do.
