Abbeys Retreat is a fantastic stone and iron house ideal for families. So peaceful and quiet you won't want to leave.
Abbeys Retreat is so different from anything else on offer in the South West It is a fabulous stone and iron family home with two huge lounge areas ( one upstairs ) with the enormous kitchen / lounge dining area downstairs being over 100 sq m. There is a fantastic open fire in the conversation pit which is so popular with all our guests. There's nothing like turning off the TV and sitting around the fire, with friends and family, telling stories or toasting marshmallows. The upstairs lounge is air-conditioned. Downstairs remains cool through summer with the thick stone walls. Fans in all the bedrooms.
The 10 acres is so quiet and peaceful, and with a dam on the property bird life is abundant. There's kookaburras, cockies, blue wrens, and so much more. Wildflowers abundant in spring.

We stayed here with extended family to celebrate a special birthday and gather everyone together. The kitchen was well equipped to cook for 16 and the communal areas lovely and relaxing- particularly the outside area and bbq. The inclusion of a bar fridge in the kitchen is a great idea to suit a large group. Our 16 people were very comfortable in the selection of rooms with all the bathrooms very good. Our beds were very comfortable with thick curtains to keep out the morning sun. Well located in beautiful bush land close to both Dunsborough and Margaret River we had a truly fabulous stay. Thank you!
What an amazing stay we had at Abbey's Retreat with extended family visiting from Ireland. The house suited our groups needs (all 16 of us), is well equipped (the host has thought of everything) and a beautiful tranquil location within driving distance of many of the South's best attractions. The pictures do not do it justice as the layout far exceeded our expectations. Excellent communication with the host. Overall I would highly recommend this property. I would definitely stay again with a couple of other families/friends. Thanks Jane for your hospitality, this was a rare find that catered for our numbers and we have all left with such wonderful memories. Please note the stay was in early January 2018 (the year of stay field only lets me select up to 2017)
Excellent Stay at Abbey's Retreat
A group of ten artists stayed at Abbey's Retreat this last weekend and what a wonderful stay we had. A spacious, beautiful home containing a large kitchen, plenty of indoor and outdoor living areas, comfortable beds and three large bathrooms. An ideal home for a large group or family to stay in. The surrounds are tranquil being a treed block with a lot of bird life. As a collective group we plan to stay again next year because we had such a great time. Individuals of the group also want to bring their families to stay as well. Being the person who organizes our annual art weekend I am so pleased everyone had such an enjoyable experience.
Thanks Janine. So glad you enjoyed your stay. Would love to have you back again. Kind Regards, Jane
Great weekend getaway!
We stayed at Abbeys Retreat for the weekend with our closest friends/family for a birthday getaway for my Husband's 30th birthday (11 adults and 4 children).We loved it! The house and outdoor area are amazing - so beautiful and amazing set up - plenty of different spots for everyone to spread out. It was a perfect size for our group - plenty of space to be together without being on top of one another. Easy to find, close to all the 'things to do' when you're down South and convenient instructions located around house to help keep things organised! Was a pretty cold weekend for our stay and the rooms were quite cold at night, but the fire made a big difference. Would definitely stay again in the future :)
Thanks for the review Jess. Glad you enjoyed your stay and happy to have you stay again.
Best weekend holiday house
Stayed 4 nights recently with several families-11 adults and 4 children aged 10-14. The property is in a very tranquil location, close to wineries, Dunsborough, Margaret River and the beach. We found it to be well equipped with everything we needed to have large family meals. The beds were comfortable and the caretaker was also very responsive to a problem we had with the coffee machine. Beautiful property for a large group.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house has everything you could possibly need and the beds are very comfortable! Thanks so much Jane.
