"We felt like we were 'in a tree' amongst the trees.
With windows all around and wood all around we were a part of nature.
In our fast paced world this is what so many people need to 
reconnect to themselves, each other and nature - how it should be and will be again soon.

Thank you, thank you, thank you."

Yet once here we felt completely departed from the usual life! 
We so appreciated a warm fire pre lit, and delicious bread waiting for us.
Walks to explore around the Ark with our little dog who loved pretending to be a bush bandit 
rather than the city slicker he is.
We hope to be back "

The Yurt itself is just spectacular, not only due to it's views but also because of it's secluded location on the property.

Thank you so much, we wish you all the best and we'll definitely see you again soon."

The canvas of greens and browns out of the kitchen window were alive in the recent rains.
While the view off the balcony through the tall tres as old as time and to the massive blue inlet.
It was an adventure to walk the trails out back.

This is our 5th stop on our tour so far, including Cape Lodge in Margaret River, The Esplanade in Fremantle plus Cottesloe on the beach and this is the best so far.

"WOW - what a find!!  We have spent 3 wonderful nights here with overseas relatives.
You have thought of everything and more!
From the comfy bed to the little candles dotted discretely around. The carpentry & workmanship
that has gone into these two retreats is awesome.  My eyes kept being drawn to all the love &
attention to detail that has gone into the Yurt - from the self supporting ceiling to one beautiful table.
The beautiful Australian birds visited every day and our little dog Mischa loved wandering around the bush.
Denmark has, yet again, welcomed us with open arms.  Such a beautiful place to visit and full of warm,
friendly people.
Thank you for your exceptional hospitality.  We really love this place and will be telling all our friends.
We look forward to returning for a second time to enjoy a warm fire & your lovely bread.
Also loved all the artwork in the Yurt and around the garden."

 - Carolyn & Chris - Bridgetown (& Mischa)

"We stayed at The Yurt about 3 years ago and promised to return to this magical peace of heaven
nestled in the karri forrest.
So we are back to celebrate Brendan's 60th Birthday.  When we drove up the driveway we felt like we were
coming home, and then walking into the cosy home with a loaf of bread waiting for us, just felt like we have
come home.
The upstairs bedroom reminds me of a special place in Melman in South Africa.  We are reminded of the
Rondavel.  The shape of the ceiling and all the wood.
Lighting the fire was so easy & it warmed up the house.
ABSOLUTELY loved our 3 day getaway.
We will be back again"
 - Rose & Brendan


18 Nov 2016
"It is sad to say our trip has come to an end as we have enjoyed every minute of our stay.

"Sensory serenity heaven! From the first moment we pulled into the Ark’s driveway we were flooded with the welcoming,
magic aroma of the forest, accompanied by the amazing sights and sounds of the beautiful Yurt and the birds that surround it.
As people who dwell in the city, and near the ocean it felt so nurturing and balancing to have so much wood and earth
element energy around us. Amazing CD selection – loved playing Van Morrison as we unpacked,
oohing & aahing as we discovered each of the extraordinary touches you offered both in your hospitality and
your furnishing of this amazing structure.
We’ve lost count of how many times we said the words “Perfect” ....“I Love this Place”…”I’m So Relaxed”!
Thank you so much for creating such an extraordinary sanctuary.
We’ll be back."
- Rakes & Ben


3 Mar 2016
"Thankyou for letting us stay here for a few days while we explored Denmark and it’s surroundings.
This place is just beautiful and we will recommend it to anyone that will listen!

Thanks for providing a relaxing, cosy and romantic setting for our mid-week getaway.
All the best"

"When city life begins to hurt
Look down south for a special Yurt.
It's deep inside the Karri trees
Just turn up & find the keys
That open the doors to a heavenly place
Away from the crowd & the rat race.
Great granite rocks & native life
Will take away your trouble & strife.
A warm welcome in this hideaway
Is food for the soul, so they say
We will be back, that's for sure
The Yurt of Denmark is a certain lure!"
