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.

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.

Simply beautiful secluded country property!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing house on a stunning property! Everything and more from what we were hoping for with our family time away.

The house itself is beautifully appointed with a fabulous upgraded kitchen, great bathroom with gorgeous claw foot bathtub big enough to get in with my 3 kids and good water pressure for shower is always a bonus when staying in the country! Master bedroom is breathtaking being able to lay there and watch the stars at night through the enormous window doors that open up to the wrap around verandah. All beds extremely comfy and clean! Large dining table plus outdoor wooden table was perfect for a big family. Log fire was great for the cooler nights and warmed the whole house.

The property was so peaceful and we could hear the creek from the house. lovely open space for the kids to play and the tracks around the property and through the little pine forest were perfect for exploring! Plentiful birdlife around and blue wrens everywhere!!! Kids easily entertained themselves without tv for 5 days just through exploring and adventures around the property.

Just 10min drive to beautiful nannup town centre.

The owners were fantastic and went above and beyond to help and assist. We can not fault anything about this property and look forward to making it back again in the not so distant future!!

Hidden country gem!

Beautiful House & Property

  • 5 of 5

3 of us stayed for 2 nights last weekend and it was absolutely gorgeous! A beautiful house surrounded by open green spaces, forest, a dam and even a little babbling creek. Having no tv was a great reason to sit out on the wide verandah, listen to the birds and running water, and watch the rabbits hopping in and out of the bushes ... sheer bliss! (I loved the big oven too.) :)
