Things to in Serpentine

The Serpentine falls and Jarrahdale are only a stone throw away so there is plenty to explore.

If you feel like going for a dip there is the North Dandalup Dam about 5 minutes drive away.

Food wise there is the Jarrahdale Tavern, the Jarrahdale General Store and the Serpentine Bistro on the Dam to only name a few. Millbrook Winery is a must if you’re looking for something more upmarket (bookings recommended). There is also the Kings Road Brewing Co only a short drive away.

Looking for something different? You can visit the Bodhinyana Buddhist monastery (8 min drive) and maybe participate in the daily offering (10.30am).

Sammy and Mikala’s story

It’s at this time of the year when everything starts to become more chaotic than normal, and you just need an escape to reset. As soon as we heard about this new secluded cabin surrounded by nature, we just knew we had to pack our bags and get away.

OUR TRIP

Located only an hour south of Perth, it is the perfect spot for a getaway for anyone who just needs an escape to reconnect with nature, but without travelling extensive distances. The Serpentine valley is beautiful and full of activities and looks different all year round. With Serpentine Falls and incredible bushwalks right on your back door step, you will leave this incredible cabin feeling refreshed, re-connected and energised.

On our drive down, we stocked up on supplies, fruit, cheeses, crackers, anti-pesto, and of course red wine. We knew that the closest grocery store was around 20 minutes away, so we made sure to stock up to make the most out of the getaway.

As soon as you arrive at the cabin, you are blown away. Surrounded by nature in the middle of a paddock on farmland, the first thing you notice is how quiet it is.

Nothing but the sound of birds chirping, the bustle of the wind through the trees, or the occasional sounds from the donkeys… Yes, that’s right, there are donkeys!

As you approach the cabin, you can just get a sense of how special this place is. Amazing views, a huge viewing glass window, an outdoor netting to relax, an outdoor fire-pit and barbecue. Inside the cabin, we were very impressed by the amazing space inside – It is deceivingly impressive to see. As you walk inside you will find a large queen bed, a bunk bed, a relatively spacious kitchen and seating area, and its very own separate internal bathroom with an amazing, high-pressured shower and toilet.

There is something about it that makes it so cosy, but it is also so spacious at the same time. This off-grid cabin accommodation is the ultimate place to stay if you need the perfect getaway. Board games, card games, nature walks – these are just a few things we did to have fun and relax. Secluded, away from any metropolitan light pollution, you can lay on the outdoor netting with a blanket and pillow and spend hours on end stargazing. We spent hours watching the colours in the sky slowly begin to change and counting how many shooting stars we could see whilst sipping on a glass of red wine. Being off-grid really made you feel relaxed and we left feeling recharged and energised. It was exactly what we needed.

Hot tip – Turn off all the lights and fall asleep with the blind’s ups on the large viewing window looking out towards nature. There is nothing more beautiful than falling asleep watching the stars move above you. You won’t forget it! This was an experience I will never forget, and I would highly recommend it to everyone.
