Took a three day weekend after the long weekend and travelled down to Dunsborough to get away from the city. Googled Dunsborough accommodation and came across Dunsborough Rail Carriages and Farm Cottages. The well signed, tree lined driveway led me to the office where I found a board out the front with my name and a key (I had booked...

We took the "luxury cottage" for our family. We didn't expect any luxury and so were not disappointed. However it was really spacious and quite well appointed. The only negative was the cleaning which was really not so well done, I had to clean the bath and bassin to get rid off the blue marks of, I imagine, the cleaning...

Thanks for your feedback especially regarding the blue marks. We saw it in another unit and a thorough 'de-blue' has been carried out. It is from our water and requires specialised removal. It would be great to have you stay with us again.

The train carriages were very cool, something different from a standard chalet. Lots of friendly farm animals in a quiet setting. Owners are friendly and let you feed the animals at 9:30am. Great laid back atmosphere. We will be back.

Hi and thank you so much for the positive feedback. We try to have a relaxing, stress-free atmosphere that provides clean, affordable accommodation, great for a getaway without being fancy. It will be great to see you again - the property varies so much through the seasons and is often very different.

Good place central for touring round but just off the beaten track. Carriages are rustic but have all you need, free range hens came to visit at breakfast time, nice touch! Animal feeding attracted the children. Nice place for children, fairly safe. Easy for parking. Only complaint was that they got confused with my booking.

Hi Tess, Thank you for your review. Yes, there was some confusion with your check-out date due to a glitch in the booking system but we believe it did not cause any inconvenience, change to your accommodation or departure date, so we are glad you did enjoy your stay with us.

Spent two nights here and just loved it. Usually we stay in Margaret River but being closer to Dunsborough and Yallingup we found that there was so much more to do! This little place is perfect, very quite and very cosy. Bring the kids and the dogs!! You'll love this little gem!

Stayed two nights in one of the railway carriages with my partner and we loved it! Very cosy and will definitely stay there again. Caretakers were friendly and accommodating. Was amazing to wake up and see all the wild lily's :)

Awesome place to stay with the family. Delux cottage is so spacious and has ample space for our family of 5. Gorgeous relaxing spa bath and awesome wood fire. Beautiful surroundings, great accommodation and friendly owners. Will definitely be back and definitely recommend to everyone.

What a great spot. We fell in love with Dunsborough and the Farm Cottages. So perfect drinking our morning tea on the terrace looking into the majestic trees. Facilities where nice and clean and comfortable, bathroom was lovely (spa bath even). It was so handy to town and everything around, but felt a million miles away, the clarity of the...
