My husband and I got married in a intimate, low key ceremony last week at the bush chapel. Our day was just magical. Our family and friends stayed at Eight Willows and all commented on how lovely the accommodation was. Our room had a beautiful view over the lake, bathroom was lush and room had everything we needed. The Residence for our reception was just perfect! Carly was very helpful with any questions I had and helped the day run smoothly. Was the perfect venue for our special day :)

We got married here mid week this week. The venue is incredible. We really love the bush retreat feeling, and it's exactly what we were looking for when picking a venue. Part of us choosing this location was the ability to have everything in the one place, especially for our interstate guests. Thank you to Carly, who was our coordinator. She made the whole process easy, ensuring the day ran smoothly. This allowed us to relax and not worry about coordinating our vendors while getting ready. All of our guests commented about how gorgeous the venue is and what an amazing day our wedding was. We can't wait to come back and stay here again.

A 2 night stay with my family (4 adults) in this little sanctuary was just enough to feel replenished and refreshed but still left me wanting to stay a couple nights more. The beds in our 2 King Chalet are so good and the location is very tidy. The resort is in between Yallingup and Margaret River with about a 20min drive in different directions, which was close enough for a drive but further enough to have some peace and quiet. There were a couple wedding functions held during my stay, this place looks quaint and lovely for a wedding. I do, however, wish we booked a chalet with a spa/bath! Would've been amazing. Thanks for having us!

Carly (event coordinator) made our day special and smooth. She was wonderful! The venue was stunning - we were married under the willow tree beside the lake. The rain stopped, the sky cleared and the photos show how beautiful it was. The accommodation was outstanding, and all of our guests were so pleased they stayed on site! I would thoroughly recommend the accommodation and venue to everyone - not only stunning, but so well placed to visit all of the amazing local vineyards, towns and beaches!
