This is by far my favorite place we have stayed in Margaret River. We stayed 2 nights and really wish we stayed longer.

Perfect for a winter break but would love to go back for summer experience too.

The Chalets, the lakes, the nature walks, the views – everything was absolutely perfect!

Couple with 3.5 year old, she loved seeing the ducks, horses and sheep along with the forest walks and around the lake.

We are a family (our kids are 4 & 12) who stayed at Tanah Marah for 4 nights in Jan 2020.

We made a good choice to book a cottage at Tanah Marah. This place has everything. Very good sized bedrooms, 2 huge bathrooms, comfortable beds & linens, well equipped kitchen, beautiful view from each room, lake, forest, golf course,tennis courts, gym, smart tv, sheep, horses, friendly and beautiful dog.

Location is very good, close to the town and many restaurants. There are kayaks to use in the lake, very relaxing. If you are lucky, you can catch some marron from the lake, just in front of your door.

Specially, Linda is very nice and helpful. Thank you Linda & Rory for a very warm welcome. We recommended this place to all my friends and family. We will stay at Tanah Marah next time without a doubt. There were some tears from our kids when they had to say good bye to this place and the dog, Pandora.

A family of 2 x adults and 2 x kids (11,8). Stayed at this beautiful place for 3 relaxing nights. The chalet is immaculate!

Plenty to keep the kids busy. Golf (9 holes…we managed 6), bush walk, tennis, gym, library, chasing sheep and keeping up with Pandora, the gatekeeper of Tanah Marah! ???? Kids loved hanging out with her.

If you love photography, this is also a place for you. A shout out to Linda and Rory for being such great hosts. Thank you very much!

Will be recommending Tanah Marah to all friends and family.

Such an amazing peaceful spot, really close to Margs town itself.

Linda was an amazing host, told us everything that was needed, then we were left in peace to enjoy the beautiful accomodation and grounds.

We played table tennis, pool and used their dvd and book library, we smashed floating golf balls into the deep lake, rowed kayaks out to retrieve them. Almost went for a round of golf with the onsite home kept golf course.

Sat and ate cheese and drunk wine in the sun at Sunset. Seriously, this place is a gem amidst options Margaret river has to offer.

We can’t believe how wonderful this place is. So peaceful and idyllic, we loved the lake and boating out on it.

Linda and Rory are absolutely wonderful and we can’t wait to be back.




Loved spending Easter 2019 on Tanah Marah.

Beautiful Setting. Wonderful hosts. A great time had by all.




Stayed for an impromptu weekend away and we thoroughly enjoyed it.

The chalets are lovely and the sunrise over the dam is very picturesque!

In the heart of Margaret River Wine region, close to chocolate factory, cheese tasting, wine tasting, excellent restaurants.

Stunning property, spacious two bedroom chalets overlooking pristine garden and lake views.

Small touches like heating on when arriving in winter, welcome goodie snacks and wine, very appreciated especially when I let them know one guest was gluten free.

About 5km from Cowaramup township where you can stock supplies of local wines and amazing foods, very good range of gluten free. Try the choc shop, candy cow, soaps, small goods etc. very quaint and authentic.

Property has tennis courts, lake, wildlife surrounding. Owners are very friendly and welcoming. Will recommend to all friends visiting the region.

Could not agree more with previous reviews – the luxury of the chalets, the views, the walk, tennis courts, library, Linda and Rory’s hospitality and communication.

Our son said “this is what other place advertise and wanna be – whereas Tanah Marah delivers”.

Would recommend strongly…..if you get a chance – book with no fear – you will be delighted.

This place has it all. Beauty and serenity but also lots to do …and such luxurious accommodation. Heartily recommend you visit and see for yourself.

The host family could not be more helpful. A five star experience.

We recently stayed at Tanah Marah for the 3 day weekend. Thank you to our hosts Linda and Rory Curtin and Panda dog for the most beautiful weekend in this lovely eco retreat set in the stunning Margaret River bush.

The 6 x 2 bedroom fully self-contained chalets were fastidiously clean and beautifully appointed with huge bedrooms that overlook the beautiful lake.

Waking up each morning to the mist on the lake and the sounds of the many birds was a highlight of our stay. The bed was probably one of the most comfortable hotel beds we’ve slept in.

With the tennis courts beside us, the 9 hole golf course, kayaking, rowing or walking along the trails there was so much to do. You can spend your day taking photos in the bush, bird spotting, investigate the local wineries, or just sit and soak up the scenery but at the end of the day our group of 10 would come together for meals and a glass of the local wine by the firepit.

Linda and Rory were fantastic hosts, friendly and informative, directing us to local eateries and wineries which we loved exploring. We will definitely be back soon.

Perfect location. Secluded yet a stone’s throw to town.

The best place in the South West to recharge your batteries. A perfect combination of location, beautiful chalets and peaceful tranquility.

I will definitely be back!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Tanah Marah.

Our favourites include the beautiful and serene environment, as well as the luxurious and comfortable chalets.

The owners are incredibly hospitable and friendly and have done an excellent job capturing the essence of Maragret River.

Couldn’t recommend this please enough and can’t wait to stay again!

Tanah Marah is just the most gorgeous property.

I was very lucky to stay a few times during April and May, and it was absolutely blissful.

The lake has so many personalities and I loved getting to know them all. The birdlife is stunning, the owners are wonderful and the chalets are divine.

11/10 would recommend.

Outstanding bush retreat, magnificent tranquility. The wedding took place in the forest, a gravel walk from resort…perfect for agricultural couple and rural family who had stayed days before the wedding in the cottages.

Family staff at reception were so efficient, catered food to die for. Verandah and dancefloor a picture, round tables aplenty. A wonderful complete package for a wedding and reception.

My 6th trip to Margaret river ended up in this little piece of a paradise.

6 chalets situated in 300+ acres was nothing less than Heaven. Lush green everywhere, totally secluded from the hasles of the outer world. You will only listen to the chirping of so many varities of birds, will see rabits running everywhere and the sight of birds landing in to the lake is a pure bliss.

Chalets were very well equipped, spacious, luxurious with all the quality fittings and kitchen amenities. Linda and the entire Curtin family was so friendly and caring. They did all those things what they could make our stay ever memorable.

Those walk trails inside Tanah Marah and Kayaking in the lake in front of the Chalets are the must to do things. They have a great tennis court, a library and a gym as well.

I can’t wait for my next trip to Tanah Marah. One of the best properties ever stayed in my life.

This is our second stay at Tanah Marah. We previously visited on a sunny Margaret River weekend where we enjoyed kyaking, croquet, lake and karri walks with friends.

This time around we got to enjoy the warmth of our well appointed chalet as the wonderful winter weather and well needed rain were a feature of our trip.

We witnessed the lake on its first overflow and warmed by the fire in the restaurant each night sharing the spoils of our day trips to the farmers market, wineries, breweries (the Beerfarm milk stout is perfect for wintry times) and local cheeses.

The things we love about Tanah Marah is that from the time you arrive, you get to sit back and relax while looking over the lake to the karri trees. Morning walks in either type of weather are good for the soul.

The recently renovated chalets are fully self contained, but to be honest we only cooked breakfast there once as we enjoyed the access to the kitchen in the restaurant for big family style dinners.

The beds are the most comfortable in the southwest, hands down….seriously.

Rory, Linda, Lucy and (of course) Pandora are welcoming and genuine hosts who go out of their way to make your stay as comfortable as possible.

Conveniently close to town, but far enough away to have a peaceful break.

Maybe next time we will manage to squeeze in a hit of tennis or round of golf between wines!

Thank you so much for hosting my family at Tanah Marah.

It is a piece of paradise and the accommodation is so well and beautifully appointed. You both have done such a wonderful job.

My family loved their weekend retreat and mum and dad thoroughly enjoyed being spoilt for their golden wedding anniversary. They both said everything was perfect.

The kids (and the big kids!) had an absolute ball on the lake and golf/tennis course. More than enough to keep them all busy.

We all feel refreshed and relaxed after our stay.




Fantastic property, and so well run.

Had a function at the restaurant and had the incredible benefit of guests being able to stay on site.

The chalets are absolutely stunning and perfect for small groups.
