Yet another wonderful stay in this Bird Haven! No bird or rabbit with us this time but no doubt we will have a pup next visit. In house massage was excellent.

We have had a very enjoyable stay. The Chalet was very comfortable and equipped with everything we needed. Our boys loved playing cricket in the front field. We loved the eggs and Boots and Clyde. The birds were beautiful and the veranda was perfect for breakfast and coffee and to sit and watch the boys and the birds.

Thanks for another wonderful stay as always. I don’t think I’m ever going to get too old to enjoy the farm and the animals. We loved going in the ute and feeding the cows and calves and I adore Clyde, the bunnies, guinea pigs, chooks and Buster. Can’t wait to see you guys and all the animals next time!

We all enjoyed this stay a lot. Curly loves it down here and so did I! I can’t wait to see how big Buster is next year and how fat the rabbits get. Clyde is so sweet and loves being brushed (he is so cute).

Thank you Jenny and Richard for a fantastic stay. It exceeded my expectations by miles! So peaceful, yet within easy reach of plenty of things to do. The Chalet is like a home from home, with wonderful personal touches throughout. There has been much thought put into the equipment provided – there was nothing more we could have wanted or needed.

This place is awesome!! We wake up and take the scraps to the chooks and gather the eggs; the guinea pigs get a grassy treat and Lucky and Wilbur some carrots. The kids think it’s great! You then spend the day at the beach or winery hopping to return to the quiet farm again in the afternoon. We have had the most fantastic time and I’m sure will return.
The Young Family, Perth

Loved the place. Loved the area. Thanks SO much for making us all feel welcome. You are wonderful hosts. We came to walk parts of the Bibbulmun Track – South Tennesse to Eden Road 19km; Shelley Beach to Cosy Corner – 6km; Mt Halliwell to Denmark – 10km; Sand Patch Road to Hidden Valley and Return – 9km. Thoroughly enjoyed the walks. We enjoyed relaxing on the balcony, watching the birds (many types). Fed the horses, looked at the guinea pigs and fed the chooks. All to short but hopefully will be back one day.

We stayed from Feb 14 th until Feb 23 rd 2009 After our 5 hour drive from Perth Hills, it was great to finally get to our destination of the Avoca Farm chalet. Wow, from our first steps inside we knew this was gonna be a great holiday. The chalet was very clean, open and had a great feel to it. This chalet has everything you could want on a holiday. Clean bright bedrooms, bathrooms and a great little kitchen with everything you want. Richard and Jenny make you feel like it’s your home but they give you total privacy, just what you want on holidays. The scenery is amazing down this way, Lowlands beach, all Albany ’s must-see tourist spots like the Gap, Natural Bridge , Wind Farm etc. Tree Trop Walk is great and if you love fishing a ½ day trip with Madfish Charters is recommended. Overall great holiday and hope to be back again – a big thankyou.

We stayed, or wanted to stay 5 nights, but added one more night. I finally managed to start the fire with only 2 fire starters, except for the last night. Sorry about that. The Alkoomi wine as good and kindly tell your neighbour that the beef was absolutely delicious! The house is definitely generous, just as you are, adorned with many things. Really felt good and comfy here. Warmest regards…..

We enjoyed the stay at the farm house. We love the animals too. The animals we enjoy most is the guinea pigs, Lucky and Wilbur and also the baby goats. Although the last time we had a black-out it was very fun. The next day after the black-out we saw a rainbow it was amazing! There were two rainbows! It’s our 2 nd trip to Avoca Farm chalet. We all missed the lovely place so much that we decided to drop by again! It’s such a wonderful place and lovely animals too. Jenny and Richard and family are fantastic! Thank you so much for your wonderful reception and the hospitality extended to us. It is again such a memorable stay at the farm! The house is as cozy as home – we would be looking forward to coming back here again… sad to leave though!

Thanks so much for this wonderful chalet. We all had a truly peaceful and wonderful holiday. We enjoyed the calm, clear and clean beaches and good foods we were able to cook in your well equipped kitchen. We did not have much chance to miss home and Thai foods.. We will find some spare time to revisit your Avoca chalet and of course will tell friends who would like to experience Australian western hospitality like we do. Thanks once again dear Richard and Jenny..

Thanks Jenny and Richard for setting up Avoca. This is a great place and dog friendly so we feel very welcome, especially Molly and Lucy, our dogs. I normally bring lots of ‘bits’ away to make our stay special, but you have already provided EVERYTHING, we feel so spoilt. We had visitors from Albany with young children and they had a ball with feeding the horses and ponies carrots and applies. Avoca is situated perfectly to Albany and Denmark and all the attractions, but isolated enough that we feel we are getting away from it all. We’ve had all sort of weather – hot, cool, rain, so the fans and heater both got used. …Not long to Xmas so we have decorated the trees with tinsel.
