Beautiful secluded retreat. A perfect venue for a wedding with lots of spacious comfortable accommodation on site and a large reception centre next to the water. Highly recommend. Justin Longbottom
Very secluded forest retreat. Good when you want to isolate yourself. Can be a little scary at night Ryan
We block booked Eight Willows Retreat (all 24 chalets) for our wedding down in Margaret River recently. Note: We did not have the wedding there. Eight Willows was great - great to have everyone around for a few days together and not just seeing them all for 5 minutes on the wedding day. Eight Willows chalets are really nice, all modern with all the amenities and appliances you need. The property is beautiful, nestled in the WA bush - it was a perfect place for all our overseas visitors, plus close to all the fun of Margaret River. Special mention to Teighlor from Eight Willows staff. She was awesome! From all the preparations and logistics to when we were there she was so helpful, friendly and went above and beyond to help us and our guests. Sorted us out a fridge, bins, tables etc for a big BBQ we had the day we checked in. Always responded to queries quickly. Teighlor was a legend! I highly recommend Eight Willows. Dan Sisinni
The chalet is secluded but the rooms are clean with updated interior. It comes with a full functional kitchenette. David Lee
Where do I start... We were awestruck when we entered the one bedroom chalet that we stayed for a night. The furnishing was of high-quality and all details were well thought out. We couldn’t have asked for more - the bathtub even had a jacuzzi! Highly recommended for anyone who visits Margaret River. Joanne Chin
