The Lanterns Retreat guest house is in a superb location just 11min walk to the town of Dunsborough which had a good range of restaurants to eat, including a Coles store and a number of shops so everything is on your door step. The beach is even closer, not one of the best in the vicinity but lovely for a...

My wife and I stayed here for three nights and the experience was so much more than we could have reasonably expected! Serge was the consummate host willing to engage in conversation about music, literature, birds and just about any other topic. Our room was comfortable, well-lit, airy and in a quiet location. We were spoiled for choice with the...

Serge the owner is the kindest, prepares the best breakfast all fresh and made to order the night before. Great location walking distance to the city center and restaurants,...

Serge was extremely welcoming, a perfect host. We had the best five days, starting each day with a sumptuous breakfast selected from a huge selection of wonderful home cooked meals, prepared expertly by our host. So good in fact that I have tried to replicate the beautiful berry trifle we had each day, but failed to come up to the...
