We stayed at the 3-bedroom Chalet #4 and had a great stay. While we didn't meet Lauren, she had communicated clearly and we had no difficulty finding the place and letting ourselves in. The kitchen is fully equipped and so is the laundry room. The bedrooms are excellent (no cheap frames or sunken mattresses!). The property is beautiful with a view of the dams to the back of the house and wild kangaroos roaming the property and even the front garden. The location is perfect for exploring the Margaret River region with the beaches a short drive or a 5km run away. Would definitely come again!

It was a lovely little chalet with a stunning view. The night was rather chilly and the fireplace was a huge welcome. The beds were also equipped with electric blanket which was a plus point. We could see many kangaroos roaming freely from the kitchen. The kids totally enjoyed spaciousness of the chalet. Lastly, Lauren was kind enough to pop by the next day to ensure we settled in alright. Overall, a great stay and worth the recommendations.

Kim and Lauren are the owners/managers of Acacia Chalets in Margaret River, 3 self-contained chalets that receive excellent reviews on Tripadvisor. Margaret River Wilderness Retreat is our original home and is very spacious and captures that "Margaret River feeling" with Jarrah timber floors and limestone feature wall. The house is light and bright and overlooks the farm dam and guests can see kangaroos and wildlife from the decks that surround the home. As a husband and wife team we ensure the property and home is always well maintained and kept spotlessly clean.

Kim is a keen surfer and loves golf and fishing and is happy to share his local knowledge with our guests. Lauren loves swimming and walking and the Cape to Cape walk track is nearby.

We love living in this very beautiful part of Western Australia We don't live at the chalets but are only a few minutes away and always contactable by phone and email and we visit you as you arrive to make sure you are comfortable and have everything you need for a great holiday in this beautiful part of the world.
