Fantastic 4 day getaway. So peaceful and relaxing. Beautiful part of the world with first class accommodation.
Well worth the drive
After not visiting Margaret River for 4years it was lovely to drive down there and stay at a place that exuded country cosiness. The layout was perfect and just being able to sit in front of the fire with a wine and a book was the epitome of relaxation The location is central to the towns amenities and well worth the visit - We'll definitely stay again!
Fantastic stay, lovely area and perfect for a quick getaway - much appreciated and highly recommended :)
This place was great. The décor was lovely, and everything was spick and span. Loved that just out the back door was the river and lovely bush walking trails. We walked to town one evening for dinner when it was still light (wouldn't do it in the dark). Would definitely recommend your place to friends.
A beautiful place to stay. Location is perfect - an easy and most enjoyable , 20 minute walk in to town via the forest or a short drive . Décor is exceptional. Loved sitting out on the balcony, enjoying a wine or two. Serenity was just what we needed. Thank you.
Location and house was great. Private and secluded but also not far away from Margaret River. The track across the river into nature walking tracks was particularly lovely.
Overall great stay!
We stayed at Aroha in September and found the place to be very neat and comfortable. The garden was lovely with native birds appearing on our balcony each morning. It was great to have the river virtually outside our back door. The bed was luxurious and the woodfire very warming. One minor annoyance, which was a bit off-putting was having the rules stuck on the fridge, like you might expect in a motel. But other than that everything was excellent. (Thanks for the feedback. We will be moving the 'Code of Conduct' from the fridge)
Was fantastic! Ww loved how close it was to town! We loved that you had foxtel hd and a wood fire. Each morning there were a few birds that kept comin back around which we loved too! Pretty rare to make someone feel at home away from home and this was 100% perfect to that ☺️
Aroha was a lovely place to spend a wintery long weekend in Margaret River. It had everything we needed and was extremely comfortable. Having the fireplace, massive TV and full Foxtel subscription made it the ideal place to stay when the weather is wet and wild.
Really enjoyed the house, very cosy, very well fitted out with all possible needs met.Great location near the river and walk to town (in the rain one day, but that was a great experience. Nice quiet location but close to all amenities. Would recommend and would stay again if we come back.
What an amazing place to stay in Margaret river. Nice and close to the town center but you wouldn't know because you are surrounded by such natural beauty. We spent most of our time on the balcony relaxing. I would recommend to anyone and would stay here again. Plus the owners are very friendly. Thanks for a good weekend.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Aroha during our most recent trip to Margaret River. We have been guests at many similar establishments over the years and I must say Aroha is the best combination of value and luxury we have encountered so far.
It was the little things we noticed like the pod coffee machine with both decaf and regular pods... Huge and comfortable bed with great pillows and linen... Foxtel... high quality DVDs... The wine and chocolate and so much more. The owners certainly take a lot of pride in how they present the property and it really shows to self employed people like myself who are extremely details orientated and appreciate great service.
Well done and we would love to return next year!
Great stay - easy access, warm fire and reverse cycle system, lovely and quiet location - would definitely recommend to others.
Whilst you are close to other houses you feel like you’re miles away. The accommodation is top spec and the log burner made it perfect. The river is right on your door step which was perfect for breakfast and enjoying the wildlife coming and going around you. Yes, there is a “car park” where people pull up and go for walks/walking their dogs but you don’t really notice it and you’re certainly not overlooked/feel like you’re being watched. A perfect place to get away from everything but close enough to get everything you want. Great place to stay
Aroha proved a lovely quiet bolt hole to relax at the end of a hectic day sightseeing wine tasting beach going and eating too much and too well. Extremely peaceful. Very comfortable. Great situation by the river and close to town and all amenities. Bottle of wine and chocolate a nice touch.
We really enjoyed our stay so much that we are more than happy to stay again
After a busy day at gourmet escape it was really what the doctor ordered

Amazing Amazing Amazing.
Such a romantic little hide away.
Will come back for sure.
Loved also all the little things to start the fireplace.
Very lovely owners
We loved the property; the location was perfect. A short drive into Margaret River and it's many attractions and yet you feel like you are nestled away in the bush somewhere. The apartment itself is well appointed and the view from the front deck out over the weir and river is idylic. The sound of the river rushing over the weir is a soothing sound like wind through the branches of a tree. A great place to rest and relax or a great base for exploring the surrounding region.
Well worth a visit.
What a fabulous stay! Everything at your doorstep. The beautiful view from the outdoor seating area of the river and forest is breathtaking. Within seconds you are crossing the bridge over the water into the lush forest. Walk one way and you will find endless trails with wonderful scents. Walk towards town, and within a short time you are near cafe's, boutiques or anything you might need. Hop in the car and there are never ending winery's and of course, countless beaches. Stunning. Highly recommended!
We really enjoyed our stay at Aroha. It was great being in a quiet location near the river but still being close to town. The accommodation was of a high quality and I would recommend this place to others.
