With 4 secluded self-contained cottages, nestled in a peaceful bush setting, whilst enjoying the animal interaction experience. We have a large number of animals for daily animal feeding activities. The huge playground and pool will keep the kids busy whilst the grown ups enjoy some of the local wine and produce from the privacy of the cottage verandahs. The native bush contains over 150 species of plant including spectacular wildflowers, and is home to wildlife such as kangaroos, bandicoots, and possums, great for a peaceful walk. All this enables both families and couples to spend their days on the property. When you do want to venture out we are positioned in the heart of the Margaret River region. Most of the South Wests major tourist attractions are within easy reach of us.
Basic, cosy and comfortable enough. We mostly just slept there, so for us was a good base. The owners are very accommodating! Thank you
Best place to visit for families, book in advance as this place is very popular during holidays. And the petting experience with the animals each morning at 8:30am...the kids just love it 😄
This place exceeded our expectations in so many ways. My parents, partner, son (1 year old) and myself just spent 2 nights in the Redgum cottage. The location is perfect, nestled in the middle of bush land we found our extremely clean and brilliantly presented cottage (the personalised welcome sign is a very nice touch fyi!!!!), watching the wild kangaroos hop past every morning and getting visits from the friendly peacock named Romeo, my son was in his absolute element! A travel cot, high chair and a bunch of toys, books and DVDs were all provided - excellent for all ages. The owners and staff are so friendly and take time to get to know you and also give lots of recommendations regarding the surrounding area and must see attractions. Feeding the animals every morning was the absolute highlight! Not only did my son love seeing so many animals up close and personal, but us adults loved the experience just as much. Will definitely be back and have already recommended to so many people!! Thanks for making our trip to the region so memorable!! We'll definitely be seeing you again soon!
Natural bush. Variety of Animals. Playground. Quiet. Kids loved feeding time
We booked Rosella Cottage for three nights. We arrived mid afternoon and found the cottage to be suffocatingly hot. Granted it was a hot day but windows in the cottage had been left wide open which of course let the heat in. We located the air conditioner and turned it on to cool the place down before the rest of the party arrived. We looked for air con units in the three bedrooms but there were none. When accommodation is advertised as having reverse cycle air conditioning I think the average person would think the whole cottage would be air conditioned. Gradually the two bedrooms closest to the air-con cooled off but it took till mid evening for enough cool air to float through to the back bedroom.
Two of the group took their shoes off upon arrival and soon found the soles of their feet were becoming very dirty. The floor may possibly have been swept or vacuumed before our arrival but I feel sure it had not been mopped. I visited Joanne, the owner and mentioned the heat in the cottage and the floor being dirty. I asked her for a mop and some cleaning solution so I could mop the living area. Joanne is very friendly and helpful so of course she obliged. She suggested opening doors and windows to cool the place off. I mentioned the peacocks might come in the doors and she said they were opportunistic . We found this to be true.
Opening doors and windows might seem a simple thing to do and it would have helped a lot as afternoon turned into evening and the outside temperature cooled off. However flyscreens on doors and windows were minimal and those that were there were ineffective. Apart from the kitchen window all other windows were without fly screens. There were two sliding doors, one at the front entry and one in the back bedroom. The front flyscreen was torn along the edges and in a fragile state. The back bedroom door didn’t have a flyscreen at all. We were not at all keen to have the cottage full of mosquitoes or peacocks so the doors and windows had to remain closed.
The two front bedrooms were presentable. However the back bedroom was not good. It was basically a narrow verandah that had been poorly closed in to make the cottage bigger. It was not at all suitable for paying guests. There was one tiny window which you couldn’t see out of unless you stood up. There was the sliding door onto a small concreted area at the back. This was a room with two beds in it. The room was so narrow that you couldn’t reach the second bed unless you walked sideways around the end of the first bed. There was a floor fan that helped move the air but it was not the sort of room you would pay to stay in. The single bed in that room needs looking at because it sinks in the middle.
For a balanced review I want to add l the good things about Kerriley. The kitchen was well equipped. Everything needed was supplied. We had plenty of hot water. The towels were very soft and clean. The shower and toilet were very clean. There were plenty of games and toys and this was really appreciated. Other folk have commented on the ants. Yes, there were some but we never really found them to be an issue. The property is very quiet. The thing we liked best about Kerriley was the animal feeding each morning. The couple who do the animal feeding are brilliant with children. They remember each child’s name and ensure that all of them are actively involved in the feeding process. This is a real tourist attraction not to be missed.
When I got home I checked on the Kerriley Park website. There were several photos of rooms in the other cottages but no specific photos of the interior of our Rosella Cottage. I wondered if this was intentional. A photo of the back bedroom in our cottage would not have resulted in any booking being made, I’m sure. Joanne gave us a discount on our accommodation when we made the booking a few weeks ago. Was this discount given because it was known that Rosella was very run down. We left the accommodation after only two nights, preferring to lose our money rather than stay longer.
