Beautiful bush cottage

  • 5 of 5

Sometimes returning to a place you have really loved isn’t the best idea, but our second stay at Boranup Cottage was even better than the first. The secluded bush setting of the cottage in the beautiful Karri forest was a gorgeous as ever. This archetypal rammed earth cottage, with blue wrens and kangaroos close by is only a few steps steps from the fantastic Boranup Cafe and Gallery, yet feels like you are the only people for miles around. Loved the log fire, well apportioned living space, giant rainforest shower and hot tub. Our kids went completely free range. And the location is just stunning. Jane was so supportive and compassionate when’s my husand has an accident and we and to cut our holiday short. Couldn’t fault this place, and can’t wait for our third visit! Oh and the best bit is that it is very dog friendly as well!

Wonderful escape into the forest

  • 5 of 5

This was an outstanding location to stay, with ease to head either north or south along Caves Road and to all points along it. The peace and quiet of the location, nestled into the trees, made it a great escape after each day of exploration. And the access to Margaret River, Hamelin Bay, Augusta, and all points in every direction made this an outstanding starting location for explorations. And then, once the travels were done for the day, pulling the patio chair out under the open sky made for great way to bring the day to a close under the blazing Milky Way.

The location was very well apportioned and comfortable, clean and tidy to welcome us. The kitchen had every amenity needed for a comfortable stay and the contents were well thought out for those staying either for a short or a long stay.

Beautiful and serene

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was wonderful and clean and a perfect location from which to explore the surrounding caves (can recommend Giant's Cave especially!) and hiking trails. The lounge room was spatious and cosy, the shower was extraordinarily large, and the spa was a lovely extra. The array of cooking pans, crockery and tupperware was particularly useful. We had a lovely time and hope to be back before long!

A lovely cosy cottage with great atmosphere.

  • 5 of 5

Hi Jane, we had a wonderful week-end at Boranup Cottage. It was so

great to get away to the beautiful surrounds of your cottage in the forest. Your cottage is the perfect antidote for a busy working life up in Perth. Walks, drives and restaurants were the order of the day and we

enjoyed it all. It was lovely our dog could join us as well at the cottage and many of the local venues including Boranup Café.

A lovely little cottage

  • 4 of 5

It feels like you are in the middle of nowhere, although the Boranup Gallery and Cafe is literally 3 minutes walk and there are chalets and other properties located close by. The cottage is cosy, but I agree with another reviewer in that the bedrooms are not heated so the additional blankets provided are needed in the colder months. It was clean, the shower was good however I would recommend a stronger exhaust fan as it can get quite steamy in the bathroom.

The two single beds pushed together were not comfortable to sleep on so I would recommend a new double bed or two singles that are at least the same height. The oven would occasionally go out while cooking and I am not sure if this is due to how it is vented as it sounded like air was coming in when the wind blew.

The location is good and in easy access to all Margaret River has to offer and the drive down was beautiful with all the tall trees.
