Fantastic accommodation in a lovely part of WA. Surrounded by Porongurup National Park it is the perfect location to explore the park and do the many bush walks near by. We stayed for two nights with our three small children (5,1 and 10 weeks) and we highly recommend the chalets for families. Very spacious with everything you need. The chalets are also extremely clean and have a lot of personal touches that make them so special. Hoping we will be back sooner rather than later.

A beautiful cosy chalet, in a gorgeous bush setting. You can tell by all the thoughtful finishing touches that the host really has your comfort in mind. Very clean and tidy, well appointed little kitchen. Everything matched and gave it a very cute feel. Good value for money. Loved it!

Information

  • As the Chalets are built on a traditional Swiss design, the interior stairs are quite steep.  This may be difficult for young children or people with mobility and balance concerns.

  • We are in the Australian Bush.  As such, there will be local animals.  None are particularly dangerous, however care should always be taken with wild animals as their behaviour can be unpredictable - especially if they feel threatened.

  • Porongurup Chalets are 22km outside of Mount Barker and 40km from Albany.  Our local shop closes at before dark and there are very few places to buy food once evening arrives.  Please ensure that you buy food and drinks before you arrive.

  • Our Chalets are tidy and clean. Please be aware that the Chalets are not a 5-Star Hotel. We are deep in the Australian Bush.  Whilst we do have all the mod cons like electricity, heating and hot water at mains pressure, we don't have room service, a shop, a restaurant or a swimming pool.

Rules

WiFi

Unfortunately, fast internet access isn't a feature of the Australian Bush, so if you were hoping to torrent some Linux Distros or binge on Netflix, you're going to be disappointed. We can certainly provide enough Wifi to let you check your email but we think of the lack of speed as a feature. Disconnecting is healthy!

If you're a Telstra customer, you won't have any issues with phone calls or data - but if you're with any other provider, think of your stay here as a digital disconnect.

Quiet time

The Chalets are in an Australian Bush Setting.  It is peaceful and serene.  Because most of our Guests want to enjoy nature, we have a policy of quiet time between 10pm and 7am.

No Smoking

There is no smoking anywhere on the Porongurup Chalets site.

COVID-19

We abide by the Health Recommendations and Requirements of the Shire of Plantagenet, the WA State Government and the Australian Federal Government as well as the WHO and CDC.  As such, this means if there is a requirement for check-ins, vaccinations or masks to be worn, we expect guests to abide by the requirements for the safety of other guests and staff.

All Staff at the Chalets are fully vaccinated and we have implemented Covid-enhanced cleaning.

Recycling

Because we respect the environment and we do not have a local waste collection service, we ask that you are mindful of any rubbish or waste you generate.  We have recycling bins and ask that you separate your rubbish from items that can be recycled.  Instructions are provided in the kitchen of each Chalet.

Water Usage

We understand that a hot shower is one of life's pleasures. However, we do live in an environment where water is scarce.  Please be conscious of your water usage.

Electricity

As an environmentally-conscious provider, we monitor electricity usage closely.  Please ensure that when you are not in your Chalet, you switch off as many lights and appliances as possible.

Heating

All Gas onsite is provided from bottles.  These have a limited capacity.  To ensure you do not run out, please remain conscious of your heating usage and only use the heating where necessary.

Cooling

In Summer, it can get quite warm. In defiance of the sternly-worded letters we have written, this remains outside of our control.  To ensure your Chalet remains comfortable, please open the windows to allow cooler air to flow through.  Even though a hot day can be intolerable, most evenings get very cool.

Groundskeeping

Nature isn't tidy. Trees drop leaves and branches. Weeds pop up wherever they can take hold. Rain results in mud and erosion. So, to keep things presentable and safe, we have to do groundskeeping on a regular basis. Unfortunately, this can be noisy as it involves leaf blowers, tractors, whipper-snippers and other loud, angry machines. We are very conscious of keeping things quiet, serene and peaceful, but these jobs have to be done.

Where possible, we will complete these tasks on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays 10am and 3pm. This will keep the weekends nice & relaxing for all of us!

Security

All chalets have electronic door locks and motion-activated external lighting.  The entire property is fenced and gated and there are security cameras placed in public areas to ensure the safety of our guests.
