Overview

Explore the beautiful West Coast from this charming guest house located in the middle of Darling – the heartbeat of the West Coast. A gorgeously restored Victorian country home is the picture of peace and tranquillity, effortlessly blending the old with the new. Three individually decorated country-style rooms are housed in the main house, while the more modern garden annex offers a further three generously appointed rooms. The grapevine covered patio overlooks the sparkling swimming pool (with open-air lounge) and is the ideal spot to unwind. Each space is dedicated by a local artist, with specific works having been chosen to help to enhance the ambience. A beautiful and well-maintained garden boasts ancient pepper and palm trees, as well as a burst of colour with abundant aloes, roses, lavender and bougainvillea, the heady aromas bringing a sense of calm and relaxation. Generous breakfasts are served in the breakfast room, out on the terrace or on the patio – the perfect way to start your day before heading out to discover the gems of the nearby coastline with its stunning natural beauty and national parks. Sample the locally produced wine, beer, sweets, and cheese, with the pièce de résistance being the endless flower fields that bloom in the spring. Relax after a day of exploring in the cosy TV lounge or library. Wonderful comfort and personal service awaits. Off-street parking | Complimentary Wi-Fi | Individual concierge services.
