The ultimate treehouse escape for your next Swan Valley trip.
Tired of that daily 9-5 grind? Well, take a 45-minute drive into the Swan Valley for a magical escape that will take your breath away.
Sitting on the Baskerville ridge, this Treehouse Retreat is the stuff of dreams boasting modern, rustic decor. It’s caught our attention with a magical outdoor entertainment space and incredible views across the valley to the Coastal Plains.
The area and scenery ooze relaxation, and the heated outdoor Jacuzzi overlooking stunning bushland has us all kinds of excited, wine and sunset anyone?
Okay, our jaw actually dropped when we saw the outdoor entertainment area. Resembling some kind of jungle escape, it featured an outdoor Jacuzzi, kitchen, barbecue and a double-sided fireplace.
There’s plenty to do in the way of outdoor activities with a swing set, trampoline and zip line (not for the faint-hearted) included. If that’s not your style, you can take a stroll through the local bushland and follow a trail to a small pond and seasonal stream- the perfect spot to perch up with a book and picnic.
You’ll be spoilt for choice with Sandalfords, Lamont’s, Houghtons, Upper Reach and local breweries such as Feral and Mash right on your doorstep. It’s also driving distance from John Forrest National Park, Swan Valley Cuddly Animal Farm, Margaret River Chocolate Factory and Bells Rapids. Basically, the only problem you’ll encounter is what to do first.
You get the entire place to yourself so you can take a fun family vacation or leave the kids at home and enjoy a relaxing girl’s trip completed with lots of wine.
The entire bungalow space is $550 per night.

What To Do In The Valley: Our Top Picks
Ranging from vineyards, fine foods, historic buildings and scenic walking trails, there’s no shortage of things to do and see in the valley.
Visit some Wineries and Breweries
Considering Swan Valley is Perth’s oldest wine-growing region, it would be rude not to take a little tour of all the glorious wineries and breweries in its midst.
Their fortified wines such as Shiraz and Verdelho are a must-try in this region, and they’ve also got plenty of organic, French and Italian-inspired wines.
Home to over 40 wineries, 11 boutique breweries and 5 distilleries it can be a little overwhelming to choose.
Some of our favourites? If it’s wine you’re after, you can’t leave without visiting the likes of Sandalford, Oakover Grounds, Upper Reach Winery and Sittella. On the brewery side of things, Feral, The Henley Brook, Funk, Ironbark and Homestead Brewery are our pick of the lot.
If your friends are anything like mine, finding a designated driver can be a task near impossible, so why not book a tour instead? There’s plenty to choose from, with full-day tours, half-day tours and cheese & chocolate tours. Take a look on Tripadvisor for a start to see what’s on offer.
Outdoor family activites
The family will love a day in the valley and you can get outdoors with plenty of exciting attractions on offer. Get lost in The Maze, test out your swing at Oasis Supa Golf & Adventure Putt or cool down at Outback Splash.
If you’ve got a big sweet tooth, then make sure a stop at Margaret River Chocolate Company and Mondo Nougat is on your to-do list.
Go to Nougat heaven or get lost in divine chocolate, with some free tastings on offer too- don’t mind if we do.
Make some furry friends
Caversham Wildlife Park will be enjoyed by adults and kids alike. They’ve got native animals of all shapes and sizes that you can get up close and personal with. Meet some wombats, touch some lizards or get your photo taken with some totally adorable koalas.
The scenery in Swan Valley is nothing short of incredible, and after some days spent stuffing yourself with wine and chocolate you can walk it off on one of the various walking trails.
Take a step through nature at Bells Rapids, Noble Falls, Wandoo Heights or Whiteman Park.
