Perfect home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay in this beautiful home. This house has everything you could possibly need. A fully stocked pantry, a wonderful games room for kids and adults. Pretty much all age groups were catered for in some way!

It's only 10 mins from the city, in a lovely rural location

Thanks again for your wonderful hospitality Doreen - we will be back!

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

Doreen was wonderful and so hospitable. The house was terrific & had everything you could possibly need & was also close to town but so nice & quiet.

Would definitely love to go & stay there again & it's the first time I've seen the kids be kept occupied for days without getting bored.

Thank you Doreen!

Perfect Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

The house was excellent! It was set up so well to cater for our 3 family entourage of 7 Adults and 5 children ages from 10mnths to 15 yrs. The walks through the avocado orchard was amazing. The kids loved the playroom and the games room. All our needs were catered for and the beds were so comfortable. I would recommend this home to any family wanting a quiet but beautiful get away. Very close to shops and town centre. Thank you Doreen for being such a friendly and generous host.

Beautiful family retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 4 night stay in this lovely property, with our two children and pet dog.

The amenities were of a very high standard and everything we could think of had been provided. I enjoyed the luxury of a spa bath, whilst the children loved playing table tennis and riding around on the scooters. We had daily walks through the avocado orchard and out in to the paddock near the creek. Only a short drive into Albany city centre made it a wonderful location. We will recommend this property to family and friends. Thank you again!

A homely stay at Albany

  • 5 of 5

The drive to Mt Willyung Retreat from Perth is relatively easy using the Waze app. It's important to contact Doreen when you are about 30min away as you will need her help to guide you to the gate leading to the road track into the farm.

It was a wonderful 2 night stay with our family at the fully furnished and equipped home.

Doreen is a thoughtful host as she has taken care of the usual home comforts such as provision of boxes of tissue paper around the house and even brought over a box of toys for our toddler.

We'll definitely recommend our friends to stay at My Willyung Retreat if they are making a trip to Albany and that they should stay more than 2 nights to fully appreciate this lovely home.
