Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely, relaxing stay. We had a great winter break at Yira Katta. The views are absolutely magnificent. It was very quiet and a great place to unwind. The log fire kept the living areas wonderfully warm. We would often go for a walk on the farm property which was very nice. The Chittering Valley is a lovely place to explore, and so close to Perth!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Weekender We booked this home for a family weekend getaway, a trip to the country with no internet for the kids to experience things as we did as kids growing up. The home was spacious, clean and had everything we needed for the stay. The fire added a bit of cosy comfort for the cooler weather we had. The property was amazing and the kids had a great time exploring along the creek and river that runs by the property. Both the kids and us Adults had an awesome time and reconnected as well as enjoying the good old country fresh air. Would highly recommend this property to others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thank-you to the owners for sharing this beautiful place, the views and tranquility are restorative. Lovely siiting on the verandahs and beautiful spacious house. Great for families, we did not have to unpack any toys or movies and seemed to be stuff to enjoy for all ages. We enjoyed a lovely morning kite flying. One of the best set-up guest accomodation, with lot's of thought into what items you might need. We stayed 2 weeks and John emptied rubbish and offered to bring firewood and fresh linen, very considerate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We had visitors from the UK & took them to spend 4 nights with us in this property & it was absolutely fantastic. The house has everything, you just need to take yourselves, clothes, food & drink. It was so quiet/relaxing & the views from the property are unbelievable. Definitely would recommend that you stay here & will hopefully go back ourselves in the future.
