Thankyou, we had a fantastic time again, still talking about it now, and definitely didn't want to leave. Having a week was great – we did a trip to Salmon Beach, had dinner at the Balingup Night Markets, attended the Small Farm Field Day, participated in the Balingup ANZAC Day service and march, and having our Misty View Cottage haven to retreat to whenever we wanted. Time went by too quickly, but felt like we were there for ages.

Thanks again for your wonderful hospitality

Billie & family - April 2013

I have just spent the long weekend in March 2013 in Kimba's Cottage. Very glad now that I've found this place!  The cottage was spotless, comfortable, and best of all…and what I look for everywhere I stay….complete privacy ! Balingup is considered a winter destination, but summer has its benefits too, such as sleeping on the verandah of my cottage under the stars and listening to the kangaroos rustling about all night. Cheers Deb and Brian..can't wait to get back there.

Neil - March 2013

We had a wonderful time here in Balingup. The cottage is beautiful and the views are absolutely stunning. We'll be back in Spring to see the valleys in full bloom

Sue B - January 2013

Another wonderful stay!! We never want to leave...will be back very soon!

Rick & Sam - Feb 2012

Just a short note to say thanks so much for the weekend. The Chalet was perfect and loved all the little details such as the products, porch couch, fan, books, CDs, games – and especially the ‘good taste’ of the room. Everything we needed was there but not ‘over the top’ - just perfect. We’ll definitely be returning – and everyone’s talking about these mists in the valley – so got to get back for that in the winter time. Thanks again for the hospitality.

Andre & Roz - March 2012

Everything was perfect. We loved our cosy little cabin and especially enjoyed the yummy hamper you provided. We are heading back to Perth feeling totally relaxed! Jesse loved the animals!
