About the property

Inspiring Forest Retreat in the Heart of the South-West

Relax and unwind in 10 acres of peaceful southern forest bushland backing on to state forest. Sit back on the huge wrap around verandah and be inspired by the tranquillity of native forest, birds and wildlife. In winter, wake to the trickling of the winter stream that flows through the property.

Forest Redtail Retreat is idyllically situated 10 minutes’ drive south of Nannup. Stylishly furnished interiors with polished jarrah floors, cosy wood fire, expansive verandah with forest and water views, and all the comforts of home.

The Retreat comprises three large bedrooms – Master retreat with queen bed and French doors leading to a wide verandah, plus two other large bedrooms, one with a queen bed and one a double bed. Spacious, newly appointed gourmet kitchen and open plan living/dining all with inspiring open views to the native forest.

Reconnect with nature through bush walks, bird watching, exploring property tracks and adjacent state forest; or simply sit back with a glass of wine or book on the verandah.

A Base to Explore the South West

Forest Redtail Retreat is 12km south of Nannup, a charming historic timber town.

Peace and Tranquillity

  • 5 of 5

Forest Redtail Retreat offers everything you need if you're looking to getaway from the stresses and demands of everyday life. The property is breath taking and the house is warm and welcoming. We loved sitting outside and listening to the natural sounds of the native wildlife while overlooking the property's creek. While there is no wifi or tv, there is still so much to do. You can go for a walk and explore the property, take a bath, rug up by the fireplace or relax on the veranda with a good book. I would definitely recommend this place for couples and families alike. Thank you for a wonderful stay :)

Beautiful woodland retreat, wonderful rustic spacious Jarrah feel to house. My favourite place was the deck with the view into the wide open space down to the lake. Charming blue wrens and little rabbits visited as the sun dappled through the trees in the late afternoon. No tv and limited mobile contact made for a truly peaceful stay without distractions. Would love to stay again.

A real getaway when you need to get away

  • 4 of 5

Redtail Retreat is just that! A great opportunity to leave the rat race and enjoy absolute peace and tranquil beauty on your doorstep. It's secluded and the view from the verandah, lounge and kitchen overlooks a private lake, bubbling stream and tall trees. Animals and birds are constant companions. Don't worry that there's no tv - you'll be surprised how little you need it. Let the world get by without you for a while - we did and loved every minute.
