After visiting Riveresque over the past 4 years every time we go to Margaret river we are only now getting around to writing a review. Apologies Di and Rob! In any case we thought to share with you all how wonderful riveresque is and how tranquil a feel the chalet has. From the moment you wind in to the tree...

I took a friend from Melbourne to Margaret River and stayed at River'esque for 4 nights. I read most of the reviews & photos on Tripadvisor and very curious about how good this place can be to have 148 five star rating. Discovered it's all true and genuine reviews. My friend and I were blown away with what Di &...

Back in December 2013 my new wife and I had the pleasure of staying at River'esque for a few days to enjoy the beginning of our life together. We couldn't have asked for anything better. It was such a relaxing, romantic and beautiful place to stay. Although we live in Margaret River it felt very much like we had left...

We stayed at River'esque for 5 nights and left feeling relaxed and refreshed, if not sad to leave such a stunning retreat. We cannot thank Di and Rob enough for sharing such a beautiful place with us. There is so much warmth and thought that has gone into everything there. The chalet is filled with thoughtful touches that you are...

It is difficult to properly put into words just how unique this place is. It is owned and run by the friendly, lovely and particularly helpful Di and the legendary surfer Rob. The chalet is meticulously prepared to ensure your stay is more than comfortable. It is tastefully decorated in the tranquil Balinese style. The bush views are sublime and...

You might expect clean sheets and maybe a little chocolate on the pillow. That's good because you get it, but wait till you see the extra, extra little 1%ers. I don't want to spoil your fun exploring and finding then spread all over, but I was impressed by the homemade muesli, lots of teddy bear biscuits and everything in the...

Had a great long weekend at River'esque. All the photos look great but just don't do it justice, particularly the incredible bathroom. Surrounded by the forest, totally secluded, huge bath, indoor shower / outdoor shower. Looking forward to next time already.

Stayed here for 2 nights, but wish we could have stayed longer. This house is amazing! The upstairs bedroom has a four poster bed which is both gorgeous and very comfortable. There's a lovely large spa and the outdoor shower was a very nice feature. The kitchen was very well stocked and the fruit basket was a nice touch. The...

Of all the places we have stayed, this is perhaps the most peaceful and relaxing. The setting is something out of Balinese heaven. The owners Di and Rob are absolutely gorgeous, so welcoming and very accommodating. We have already booked our next holiday already and cannot wait. Highly recommend.

Riveresque was a lovely place to spend four days in Margaret River. It is clean and spacious and the pantry and fridge are very generously stocked. My husband wasn't well for the first day or so, and it was also raining so the comfortable beds and couches and also the board games were much appreciated. Highly recommended not just for...
