About Sonya Chalk

I live on a farm in a little community called Willalooka which is inland from Robe.

We love travelling, seeing new places and cultures, reading, painting and taking long walks along the beach.

Sonya Chalk purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Sonya Chalk chose Robe

Driftwood is a timber cottage overlooking Fox Lake with a gorgeous view of the vegetation surrounding the lake. The lake has plenty of bird like with a bird hide nearby. It is also a minutes walk to the beach. Lovely quiet area of Robe.

Very comfortable and we enjoyed the cliff walk to Robe. Weather was extremely cold but cottage was quick to heat up with an excellent hot shower.

Cosy, tranquil and welcoming

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed a lovely winter break at Driftwood with our Mini Schnauzer. From the moment we arrived we felt at home - heating and music had been put on to welcome us and a bottle of wine was among the welcome pack. Really appreciated the little touches - a towel for the dog, good dvd collection and coffee machine :)

The house is really well situated next to long beach - perfect for dog walks in winter when you can take dogs off-leash a little further up the beach. Loved the short coastal walk into town for brunch each day and also very impressed with the local brewery which is just up the road from the house and has a great tasting selection at the cellar door.

Thank you Sonya and Simon, we hope to come back soon.

Cute cottage

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Driftwood house - Robe. Being able to bring our dog was a bonus. Only wish was a firmer mattress as this was suited to those who like a soft mattress. Having a nespresso machine was heavenly for us.

Owner's Response: Thank you for writing this great review, I appreciate your feedback It is lovely to hear that you throughly enjoyed your stay and the nespresso coffee was heavenly. Driftwoods mattress is from the very supportive Sealy Sovereign range, with a micro cloud hotel topper, I think it would have been the topper that made it too soft for you. The topper sits on top of the mattress and is easily removed for a firmer sleep. We are only too happy to deal with any issues, questions or give a recommendation, just phone and we will be there. Kind regards, Sonya

Great place to relax

  • 5 of 5

We really loved our stay at Driftwood. Its a great location and we loved being able to walk in to town for dinner and coffee. The house is nicely set out and has everything you can possibly need. The only slight downfall was the overwhelming smell of dog when we first arrived and the rug in the lounge room being full of black dog hairs.

Thank you for a great stay :)
