Nestled on a hilltop and with uninterrupted views of sloping lawns, tall timbers and a creek system that boasts two lakes traversing the valley, is this stunning nine hectare property that offers luxurious accommodation and high quality facilities for group functions. Gilgara Retreat is perfectly located in that it is only seven kilometres from the townsite of Margaret River, yet very close to wineries, vineyards and restaurants, world-class surf and beaches and majestic Karri forests. Conveniently though, Gilgara is far enough away from the townsite, that it feels secluded, quiet and private when staying onsite. This perfect combination of distance and proximity makes Gilgara an ideal accommodation venue.
As well as being a perfect setting for a garden wedding, a quiet and secluded location for a yoga retreat or an impressive backdrop to a corporate function, Gilgara offers accommodation for up to 30 people onsite. With a combination of traditional shared farm house type accommodation and secluded self-contained apartments, Gilgara Retreat encompasses everything guests would expect in a visit to the south west of Western Australia.
Gilgara Retreat offers two types of accommodation: Farm style bedrooms in the Main Homestead and adjoining Lodge plus eight separate modern self contained suites.
The farmstyle Homestead has three north facing living areas with a huge open fireplace and is serviced by a large commercial style kitchen. Five king size bedrooms with private ensuites are located along a long hallway and an office is strategically located adjacent to the main carparking area.
Eight self contained garden suites, which are located along a picturesque pathway, offer king size beds, luxurious ensuites complete with sunken spa baths and split level lounge and kitchen facilities. These suites all open onto private alfresco verandahs that overlook the sloping grassed lawns.
The two bedroom Lodge constructed in the same style as the Main Homestead is nestled between the homestead and the garden suites and provides the perfect residence for owners or managers to live on site.
For brides, corporate groups and health and yoga retreats, Gilgara offers not only a quiet and beautiful setting, but, it has the capacity to be turned into an exceptional wedding or corporate event venue. There is ample space on the undulating lawn for an event under a marquee, or guests can make use of the grassed courtyard cocooned by the Homestead and Lodge for a more intimate function. The Barn can be utilized as a dance space, yoga or corporate meeting room and there are beautifully maintained native gardens to capture memorable photos.
All in all, Gilgara Retreat offers a luxurious accommodation experience for guests and an ideal venue for magnificent functions.
