"Di and Rob, you have created a stunningly relaxing haven, and it has been wonderful to experience the care and consideration you have given to every detail of your guests’ stay. We’re really blessed to have been two of them. Lovely meeting you and sharing our journeys. Hope our paths cross again. Much love."
Terry and Lynn Forrest, Cornwall, England.

"The best and most beautiful things cannot be seen or even touched, they must be felt within the heart. The beauty here touched our eyes and our hearts, so rejuvenating. Thank you – gratitude for the peace, healing, nurturing and love. With love and blessings till next time."
Shanie and Rebecca.

"Thank you for a really amazing and relaxing holiday. This truly is a piece of heaven. The house has such a beautiful energy, and we loved all the special touches you provided. We’ll definitely be back."

"A short, sweet stay. We arrived tired and burdened, but are leaving lighter and inspired. We just feel so blessed to have had this experience. Obviously the environment is lovely, peaceful and unique, but what makes the stay so energising and spiritual is the loving, thoughtful and generous spirit of you. Di and Rob, how wonderful that God chose our paths to cross. You have touched our hearts. I feel overwhelmed with the thought of all the souls who have passed through this haven and have been nourished, maybe even changed for the better, because your many kind gestures encourage us to give back to the Universe. We can’t wait to return."

"Thank you so much. The beauty and soul of Riveresque says it all. It is beautiful and unique. We loved the outdoor shower, the great marble bathroom and relaxing on the daybeds on the large verandah. Pure bliss."

"Our universe works in mysterious ways, and we give thanks and gratitude for connecting us to River’esque, and most of all to Di and Rob, two such beautiful souls! We will hold treasured memories in our hearts of the warm welcome we were greeted with on arrival. Our experience was abundantly peaceful, magical and soul nurturing, with too many special touches to mention! A most relaxing environment overlooking a healthy, lush bushland that connects to a serene flowing river. The residue of happy, peaceful energy from past guests who have stayed at River’esque is extremely comforting! You just need to go and treat yourself – we promise you’ll want to keep going back!"

"You must stay at this magical place. The exquisite setting in peaceful woodland with welcoming parasols, buddhas & lights along the driveway, prepares you for a magical experience. Gentle Gamelan music greets you as you enter the door to a paradise of beautiful Balinese artefacts, stunning flower arrangements, bamboo furniture, scented candles & rainbow coloured silk furnishings. The house combines the utterly romantic with the most modern & luxurious features. Highlights include a wonderful spa bath in only one of the two excellent bathrooms, there is an outdoor shower, a superbly equipped fitted kitchen with wonderful breakfast foods, including fresh fruits & tasty eggs from the owners' own hens, there are two superb bedrooms. The one upstairs has a dreamy fourposter surrounded by floating curtains. There is a large veranda with excellent barbecue as well as large comfortable sofas. The loving attention to detail by the enthusiastic & delightfully friendly hosts is astonishing. Silk or towelling bathrobes are ready in the wardrobe. There are even orchids tucked into the spare towels. Plenty of information about local attractions is available."

"The tranquillity and peacefulness of this exquisite ‘Bali experience’ is overshadowed by the midnight shower under a sky of bejewelled diamonds twinkling and falling around you. So mesmerising, you frolic in the rose petals under the shower longer than you should and then retire to the blissfully romantic four-poster king-sized bed amid swathes of soft sensual netting and silk. Yes, this is in Margaret River, Western Australia, hosted by the beautiful effervescent Di and Rob. The attention to detail is incredibly amazing with a little bit of Bali everywhere you turn. Bowls of bright gorgeous flowers and little flower faces peeping out at you from the most unlikely places, your pillows, towels and even the toilet roll. Candles flicker in every little nook, while the passion and warmth of the owners to share and welcome is also evident in the homemade muesli, jam and free range eggs. This is an experience highly recommended and not to be missed – you will love it!"

"This place is out of this world, a dream come true. We have stayed at River’esque on numerous occasions and wouldn’t stay anywhere else in Margaret River. Whenever we have friends/family visiting from the UK this is a must-see for them – and they are always blown away. The actual house is fabulous, with fresh bright flowers, fruit and all your basic food requirements (the homemade muesli is the best!), Balinese-style everything – touches beyond belief to make it the most tranquil setting we have ever been in. The balcony looking onto the treetops and down to the Margaret River with huge Balinese daybeds to lie on, surrounded by amazing birds and wildlife and lovely sounds. The bedrooms are lovely, and the king-sized four-poster bed upstairs is beautiful, and even has flowers and chocolate hearts on your pillow. The indoor shower and jacuzzi bath are stunning – all glass so you can see you are sitting in the middle of an amazing forest. The outdoor shower is a must, with fresh flowers all around, looking at the treetops and amazing surrounding – once you’ve been in it you won’t want to get out. You even get to see kangaroos at the top of the hill. You can walk down to the Margaret River and into the town, and can even have a BBQ outside on the balcony. The owners Di and Rob are absolutely lovely and make you feel so welcome, they are just a phone call away if you need anything. They can advise you on anything you need to know about where to go and what to see. They go out of their way to make sure your stay is perfect. Also, if you are active there are bike and running routes from River’esque which are great. It is truly magical and we always love every minute of our stay here."
