Once again another amazing stay at Annicca. Maz and Sue you do such a great job! Love love love everything about this house, especially the spa, the pool table, the huge comfy king bed, the balcony overlooking the water on which to sip tea and eat toast in the mornings. Set in the bush land but only a five minute drive from town - it ticks every box. My now fiancé and I came to Annicca for our first ever holiday together and four years and the fourth trip later to Annicca we’re celebrating our engagement !!!!
"Annicca" is in lovely Denmark, Western Australia, 5 minutes drive from the town centre. Six of us (3 adults & 3 children) spent a week in Denmark this year (Sep/Oct 2018). If you do the same, stay at "Annicca". Marian has ensured that the property and all its facilities will make you completely comfortable. The house is large with lovely living rooms (including a pool table) and bedrooms . The kitchen is large and well equipped (thank goodness for the tumble dryer, dishwasher etc). The house 'sits' in a large bush-plot, totally peaceful except for the chirping of birds (and occasional kookaburra laughter!). We had been in Denmark before, and revisited many enjoyable attractions, but we did find one new place to visit .... the ANZAC museum in Albany .... brilliant. Have a great time at "Annicca".
So we were fortunate enough to experience annicca many times pre kids when we were young n free. , 3 kids later and Our first trip back did not disappoint. Not sure why we hadn’t been sooner ... greeted with warm memories and a feeling of coming home ,we enjoyed very precious family time. The house was immaculate, so clean and comfortable . Thanks Maz as always a fab house with fab amenities fab host xx
I very rarely write reviews unless an experience is exceptional or totally horrible. Annicca I am happy to say, is about to get one of the best reviews I have ever written for anything. We have traveled a lot and stayed in many places, but our experience with Maz - the gorgeous and fantastic owner - and the beautiful warmth and serenity of Annicca, is one of the absolute best we've ever experienced in a self contained place.
I know this may seem a little long for a review, but this isn't a normal review because it wasn't a normal holiday. So I'm going to share our experience, because Maz had a huge hand in making one of the most important occasions in our life even more special and memorable.
My new husband and I eloped to get married in Denmark a couple of weeks ago. At the time we were making plans, I came across Annicca and it ticked all the boxes we were looking for : Classy and more up market - but at a very reasonable price, very high cleanliness standards, secluded and surrounded by nature, wood fire, cosy, spa bath, king size bed and most importantly....option to bring our little dog along.
Maz went above and beyond from the start and her kindness and thoughtfulness has been overwhelming. When we mentioned we hadn't organised witnesses for our ceremony yet, she offered straight away to help out. Here I get to mention another wonderful angel of the “Annicca” family”, Sue. She is the caretaker and guardian of Annicca and does an absolutely fabulous job, of not only keeping the house absolutely spick and span, but also in keeping an atmosphere of loving warmth and welcome that I know Maz feels strongly about.
Sue was totally on board with helping us out as a witness and also kindly organised a friend to make the 2 witnesses we needed. They were so amazing and generous on the day, and we could not have done it without them. Maz and Sue did everything they could to ensure there was no stress with our plans and bent over backwards in every respect, asking absolutely nothing in return. The Annicca Angels (I now call them) have truly given us faith back in the kindness of strangers.
We decided to actually get married at Annicca house in the end too, and it was all the more special for it. These amazing ladies treated us like beloved friends or family, and we have just been overwhelmed by the kindness, generosity and helpfulness that came along with our honeymoon house. We not only got married there, but had a wonderfully relaxing and cosy 2 week honeymoon.
Annicca is a fabulous house, a true home away from home. It really does feel nice and secluded with nobody around, but you are only 5 min from town and close everything else around . The plum blossom trees in spring are a particularly stunning feature at the front of the house. The quintessential, but classy, “wooden cabin in the woods”, Annicca feels like home as soon as you walk in. It's not just the gorgeous warmth of all the wood (pretty much every part of the house is wood..and a few tiles), but you can feel that this is a place that somebody cares about and it has a definite calm and welcoming warm “vibe” as soon as you walk in,...not to mention the cute welcome message and generous champagne provided by the hostess!
The spa, the pool table, the fab big kitchen, sun room, it's really spacious and has many outside sitting areas...it's a unique and fantastic little place, we wish it was ours! You lovely ladies truly care about this house and the people who stay there and it's very much appreciated.
It has been an awesome experience and we will definitely be returning as long as Annicca is in Maz's hands. (definitely for our 1 year wedding anniversary if not sooner!). We not only love Annicca but are also totally in love with Denmark now, what a stunning place and such lovely people.
The selfish part of me doesn't want everyone to know about Annicca ha, ha....but no place or host deserves a positive recommendation more than this place, and it's the very least I can do after everything Maz has done for us.
Maz, you and Sue truly are angels and there aren't enough words to express (although I know I've given you a few already ha, ha) just how much everything you ladies have done..and more ..has meant to us and how much we appreciate it. You truly made our whole elopement experience extra special and stress free and we will always be grateful and love you for that. Our little pup is also so appreciative xox How kind, loving and accommodating you have been for our little fluff ball also holds our deepest gratitude xoxo
So that's our story and my review, I can't recommend the Annicca experience enough as a relaxing, wonderful, yet unpretentious break away from the city. Maz, you are hands down, THE BEST hostwe have ever had the pleasure and honour of dealing with. Anywhere! :-)
Thank you again Maz and Sue, from the bottom of our hearts. You have life long fans for as long as Annicca continues to be in your hands.
Love J, T & G xoxo
We recently stayed at Annicca where we instantly felt at home. The house is beautiful, cosy and unique, located in a quiet bush setting. One can really relax and unwind here from the busy pace of life. Highly recommend it.

Beautiful house beautifully decked out. Warm and cozy in a lovely location.
The kitchen was huge and well equipped and we enjoyed playing pool and board games.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and it was just what we needed.
Marian was a pleasure to deal with and gave us all the info we needed.
No optus ph reception or wifi but it was nice to be "off the grid" for a few days and there was reception in town and a landline if we needed to be contacted.
Privately located in natural bushland surrounds.Woodfire,pool table and spa put to good use.Good base station for your daily trips to local attractions.My partner and I had a relaxing romantic 2 night stay here-wish I had booked for the week!!
