ESPERANCE CHALET VILLAGE
Set behind sand dunes and nestled among trees, Esperance Chalet Village is a collection of chalets, cabins and shacks. This idyllic hideaway is within walking distance of pristine, tranquil beaches and just a five-minute drive from town. The village offers a home-away-from-home feel, doing as much or as little as you like — bike riding, fishing and bushwalking are all popular activities. “I didn’t want to leave,” says photographer Marnie Hawson of her own stay. “The chalets were beautiful, full of character, and our host Di made us feel so at home.” One of the area’s original holiday destinations, this peaceful bush hideaway offers the perfect base for exploring the surrounds. From $140 per night, minimum two-night stay. For more details, telephone (08) 9071 1861 or book online at esperancechaletvillage.com.au
