Ben and Nichola welcome you to The Sleeping Lady Private Retreat.

The secluded location on the warm northern slopes of the Porongurup Range provides the perfect getaway.

Situated in Porongurup, Western Australia, at the north-eastern end of the Porongurup Ranges, The Sleeping Lady Private Retreat is a separate self-contained chalet set within 5 acres of rural land.

It’s the perfect choice for those wishing to escape to the countryside and enjoy the peaceful surrounds, wineries, birdlife, wildflowers and explore the magnificent mountains of the National Parks in Porongurup and Stirling Ranges and the many stunning beaches along the coastline.

The Sleeping Lady shares a driveway with Castle Rock Estate, so you can wander next door and taste a variety of award-winning wines.  Other wineries nearby are Mount Trio Vineyard, Abbey Creek, Zarephath Wines, Ironwood Estate Wines, Millinup Estate Wines, Jingalla Wines and Dukes Vineyard.  Being not as well known as other wine regions has its charm. There’s every chance you’ll turn up at a cellar door, being the only ones there, and have a relaxed chat with the owner or winemaker about the subtleties of this year’s Riesling.

The perfect base

Our central location means that there are many attractions to choose from close by or an easy drive.  Castle Rock and the Granite Skywalk are right on our doorstep!

Why not explore the magnificent Porongurup National Park, visit local wineries, discover wildflowers, go whale watching, or hike up Bluff Knoll, the highest peak in the Stirling Range National Park?  Take a trip to Mount Barker, Albany, Denmark and Two People’s Bay. Explore the stunning coastline or simply relax and get away from it all.

Spectacular mountain views

A wonderful balcony is ready for you to enjoy a magnificent view.  What a place to enjoy a coffee or a glass of sensational local wine!

Dear Nichola, What a beautiful place you have here. Peaceful & quiet with lovely views. Thank you for waving your magical wand and bringing out the sun and blue skies for us after 6 x days of o/cast, drizzly weather around the South Coast. The chalet is lovely and tastefully decorated and above all spotless. Your breakfast hamper that you supplied was magnificent and took our breath away. So much beautifully arranged fresh food, it was a “Banquet in a Basket”. Thank you so much. I will be certainly singing your praise to all my friends and associates in the BMW Motorcycle Club WA. Thank you again!! PS: thanks for your kindness + birthday present + our cards = beautiful!!
