About the property
- Half Baths0
- Minimum Stay1 - 3 nights
Clearhills (Darradup) is a beautiful, coffey rock cottage in a tranquil location. Nestled in the middle of the state forest it's the perfect, secluded get-away for a couple, four friends or a family. You can explore the forest which is teeming with birdlife and wildlife, meet our resident possums and watch the kangaroos and their joeys. During the day you can tour attractions, beaches, caves and wineries. It is so incredibly private and secluded, if you wanted to spend the day on the day-bed reading and slipping into a peaceful siesta it's possible. At night you can snuggle up in front of the open fireplace and toast marshmallows. It is truly magical, showcasing the most magnificent night sky. I doubt that you will ever see as many stars in the sky on a clear night. A two-night stay can be arranged by messaging Penni. Clearhills is a truly unique experience and if you book, we will do our best to ensure it is an enjoyable stay.
This newly renovated house is in a unique location. We have put all the modern comforts into this house, including beds that guests often comment are the most comfortable they have ever slept in. We pride ourselves on cleanliness and encourage guests to contact me (Penni) immediately if there is ever an issue. When I personally book accommodation I above all else expect cleanliness and I would like guests open the door after their drive and feel relaxed and happy. It offers total peace and privacy, but also is only an hours drive or less from many of the southwest's attractions and beautiful coastal towns.
It is conveniently central to EVERYTHING.
You will have access to the whole house and be able to roam around the 67 acres by foot.
Interaction with Guests
Guests will access the keys in a designated spot as we do not reside at the property.

Pemberton, Margaret River, Bridgetown, Balingup, etc. You can read, go fishing, bushwalk or book a canoeing adventure or just sit back and enjoy the wildlife.

feeling one with nature
How to say it was such a wonderful house and surrounding. My young niece was just amazed by Australian fauna and specially the cute possum coming to her hand to be fed. The house is just wonderful and the bush gorgeous. We felt like part of the bush thanks to the "pets" who lives around the house and the beutiful wildflowers. We teally appreciate as well the treats left and the home made game. We couldn't find the mushrooms though! A big thanks to have allowed us to live in this magical place.
Hi Charlotte We feel exactly the same about our little piece of paradise. It is a place of natural beauty and we are so glad to be able to share it with people who appreciate all that nature has to offer. We hope that your visitors return home with memories to treasure. Thank you for looking after our little cottage. (Thank you for feeding our pet possum/s and kangaroos) Warm Regards Penni :)
Just bring yourself
because honestly there is everything you could need at this property. Especially if you like cooking or entertaining. Some of this may have been lost on my little family, with three small children, (we made do with baked beans on toast one night). But we enjoyed other delights, like roasting the marshmallows and hanging out on the swinging chairs on the porch whilst the littlest one found the ride on. Lovely place. Penni is wonderfully accommodating. Would definitely recommend.
Meike thank you for choosing to bring your lovely little family down to Clearhills. It is great that they get a chance to enjoy the outdoors and the simple things in life. Sometimes eating marshmallows and sitting on the swinging chairs is simply bliss :) We hope to have your little trio back again :)
excellent property in the Australian bush
We had the most comfortable and peaceful time in this lovingly prepared cottage sitting by the beautiful fire each night and then enjoying our coffee on the verandah in the mornings listening to the birds in the bush . Heavenly
Thank you Lorraine I am so pleased that you and your friends had a lovely stay. Thank you for leaving the house so tidy. :)
There are few properties that could come close to Clearhills for seclusion and serenity.
Would recommend without reservation for leaving the world behind. Penni If you are ever contemplating selling this property please let me know! Its astounding and we will be returning shortly - our new winter escape.
Hi Hamish we are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Clearhills you were a great guest and we would welcome you back anytime :) we are more than happy to share our little piece of paradise with you :)
Perfect Family Accomodation
We stayed at this property for 5 nights with a family of 2 adults and 3 kids. It was absolutely perfect for our family. The house is extremely well equipped in every room. The lounge room was very comfortable especially the open fire. The balcony was a great outdoor space that the kids especially enjoyed with the dart board and lounge/chairs. The location is remote but we really enjoyed being alone in the forest and the possums and kangaroo that visited daily was an extra treat for the kids and adults alike. The owner Penni was very accomodating and I can't wait till we can return to this fabulous holiday home in the forest.
Hi Tina So pleased that you enjoyed our little patch of paradise. I really loved hearing that your family had such a great holiday. It is very special to be able to get away from everything :) we would love to have you back. Warm Regards Penni :)
