About the property

Happy days country retreat is a superb, recently renovated farm house located in the small rural town of Roelands at the bottom of the Darling Ranges.

Set on Eighty five acres of pastoral grazing land and rolling hills this beautiful old house has been completely restored with Jarrah floorboards throughout and furnishings and fixtures that have maintained the integrity of the original design.

From Happy days it's just twenty minutes drive to fine wineries, great beaches and the seaside coastal town of Bunbury, and ninety minutes to the cosmopolitan state capital Perth.

Happy Days Country Retreat has spacious elegant seating rooms, sweeping all-round verandas, a fully functioning practical kitchen and dining area and is perfect for book reading getaways with nothing to disturb you but the toot of a passing train or the call of a red-tailed black cockatoo. It is a perfect base to explore the world renowned Margaret River wine region, (one hour twenty minutes away) and seaside towns of Busselton (fifty mins) or Dunsborough (one hour ten mins).

Facilites include;

Fully functional kitchen,

All linen, fluffy towels,

slow combustion wood fire with firewood supplied,

I can not recommend this stunning accommodation more. It was immaculately cleaned, we were greeted with Cake and flowers. Michelle is just so warm and welcoming.

The decor is just gorgeous and my guests LoVed the experience.

Thank you Happy Days

Perfect weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

The photos don’t do this amazing farmhouse justice! The attention to detail is immaculate. Absolutely amazing! We had an amazing time Friday night with my bridesmaids, then getting ready Saturday morning made for the most perfect photos. Then we had a few days to relax as husband and wife. The perfect scenery of ponies and cows in the paddocks, Ah I’m already planning our next trip back! Thank you for the most amazing weekend of our lives! Love the new Mr & Mrs Carey

Absolutely gorgeous

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent 6 wonderful nights over Christmas at Happy Days and it was hard to pack up and leave at the end.

As soon as we walked in, we were in love with the property. Immaculately clean, gorgeously furnished and decorated; we were made to feel very welcome, with Christmas decorations scattered throughout and a lovely tree to put our presents under. There were also some tasty treats from a local baker waiting for us.

The bedrooms were all generously sized, with very comfortable beds and quality linen. It was such a pleasure to just lie in bed and read, with the breeze blowing in through the windows and verandah doors.

We cooked all our meals at night and everything we needed was available in the very functional kitchen, with plenty of crockery and serving ware.

The gardens were beautifully maintained and we spent a fair bit of time in the evenings sitting outside, watching the multitude of birds (and bunnies). The cows and horses in the paddocks surrounding the property were also pretty entertaining to watch!

Location wise, Happy Days was rural enough to feel like we were out of the city, but close enough to Bunbury that we didn't feel like we were out in the middle of nowhere. We even did a trip to Busselton one afternoon for lunch and a stroll on the jetty.

Thank you, Michelle, for being so friendly and welcoming, and for making us feel like Happy Days was our luxurious home away from home. We hope to stay again one day.

Flawless luxury!

  • 5 of 5

We spent two nights at Happy Days, one with my bridesmaids the night before our wedding and one with my new husband!

The quality and service here is unsurpassed- flower arrangements throughout were gorgeous, beds so comfy, and the setting is beautiful!

Immaculately presented I highly recommend a stay here!

The owners were welcoming, attentive and accomodating. No negatives at all. Will definitely be back!

Excellent stay

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend stay at Happy Days Country Retreat. Attention to every detail the ambience the furnishings etc were so classy. We arrived to a beautiful note from the owner detailing everything we needed to know about the house and a plate of homemade melting moments biscuits. The fire was going in the lounge room and outside a huge load of wood in the wheelbarrow. You could take a short drive to the Ferguson Valley and enjoy the local wineries and the surrounding of this peaceful homestead was amazing. Thank you Michelle and Eamon we will definitely book again.

Beautiful Place

  • 5 of 5

The house was amazing and even more beautiful than the photos suggested.

From the start communication with the owner was really good with prompt clear replies to our questions.

The house was incredibly well prepared and clean with fresh flowers. The owner had even taken the trouble to leave chocolate Easter eggs for our kids as our stay was over the Easter break.

The house is on a big rural plot with cows and horses in neighbouring fields which our kids appreciated. There is plenty of room on the property for kids to play. The gardens have clearly taken a lot of trouble to maintain.

We cooked for 7 people on two nights. The kitchen is well appointed and we had no problems at all preparing and serving meals with all the amenities.

Location-wise the property is about 20 min from Bunbury. It is an easy drive and there were plenty of restaurants and cafes to choose from when we got there.

Overall we can't recommend the property enough!
