There were 3 couples of various ages upward of 65. When we arrived and got out of our vehicle there was a very audible WOW!!!!!!. This feeling continued through the house. Secret Garden catered for all our needs and wants plus. There was a peaceful tranquillity about Secret Garden that put us into another place. We could not fault anything - we just loved being there. We had a Lady in our group who suffers from advance stages of Parkinson's and this place catered for her with no problems whatsoever.

We asked for and received an early arrival time and from that moment we knew that our little break away from normal daily lives was going to be fabulous. There is a ramp for walkers/wheelchairs-beds a so comfortable; linen towels etc fresh and clean in fact the whole place is amazingly clean.

We would thoroughly recommend Secret Garden to all and sundry. a big 10 out of ten from us.

“Attention to detail lacking.”
Reviewed May 18, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

If first impressions are lasting then this is why we have given the house an average rating. We arrived to a house with all the blinds down making the house dark and cold (yes I understand it is Autumn - in many houses we rent, the owners put the heaters on ahead of time). We were also disappointed that there was not a teabag, sachet of coffee let alone a bikkie to welcome us. Also no shampoo, conditioner or soap in the second bathroom. The broken oven knob controlling ignition and the thermosat made the oven tricky to use. Attention to detail was lacking - blown light bulbs in the Master suite, battery powered candles were flat, firewood supplied but little kindling, rubber gloves with the fingers missing ,and given that people will want to cook or BBQ how about a small bottle of cooking oil? A few more hangers would be appreciated too.
On the plus side, the house was impeccably clean, with soft towels and comfy beds.Luckily there were heaters in the bedrooms and the kitchen was well equipped. The garden is lovely and I am sure that the house would be great in summer given the large deck.
With a location 30 minutes from Margaret River township and 45 minutes to the beach, at the prices charged, a bit more"love" is needed. Given you provide vases a few sprigs from the garden would have been welcoming and candles that work, or a supply real ones would have been nice. Even motels provide a starter pack of tea, coffee and sugar, always appreciated after a long drive. Also in this day and age wifi is expected and you have the connectivity on the roadside. Had we wanted to stay a week, without wifi we would not have booked this property

Brilliant spot closer to the Berry Farm rather than the centre of Margaret River. If you want to be surrounded by beautiful scenery then this is the place for you. A little bit of a drive from town, but absolutely perfect if there is a group of you who want to be away from the city. My girls LOVED the basketball hoop out the front. Stunning bathroom. Huge bedrooms. Relaxing and tastefully decorated. The only minor thing was the gas oven which was a little fiddly to operate, but the kitchen has everything, even down to the waffle iron. I would absolutely recommend this property to everybody. Watch out for the kangaroos at dusk! They really get very close.
