While other “farmstay accommodation” is geared toward children, Rainbow Trail Chalets has all the fun for the big kids! Our adults-only luxury accommodation is set on a stunning 117 acre property which is home to many animals. While we’re not a working “farm”, you will be able to interact with our pet kangaroos and see other native animals. Check out our Facebook page for some recent pics of animals who have come to visit our guests!

OK, so we are a little quiet for the last two weeks of November and so we are going to give away a free nights accommodation with every two nights booked, that’s pay for two nights but stay for three. Click on the Book Now Button on our website and if you can find a three night gap in November it is yours. You will need to book yourself in quickly so you don’t miss the dates you want but write in the notes section ‘November Special’ and we will sort it out for you.
I was thinking this morning about how people come to find Rainbow Trail Chalets. While many of our guests are referrals, the majority find us via our website, which is also connected to a bunch of tourism sites around the web. One of the things we know from our website statistics is that many people view our website on their mobile device – be it an iPad, iPod or other mobile phone. With that in mind, we’re currently working on a mobile version of our website… so keep checking back for that in the next few weeks!
Along those lines, it’s my guess that many people will ask “Siri” – your iPhone’s little helper – to “Find me a place to stay down south”. This is especially true for Sand-Groper locals (click here to find out why West Aussie’s are called Sand-Gropers!) where “Down South” offers the promise of a quick getaway filled with wineries, luscious fine food and equally as luscious scenery.
Hence this blog post. When you ask Siri to find you a place to stay down South – we want Siri to include us in her reply! Tucked away in the South-West corner of Western Australia, Pemberton is one of the best places to visit “Down South“. Our beautiful town offers everything you could want in a holiday and more. We have an amazing array of activities and things to do, including swimming, bush walking, hiking, cycling, tree-climbing, wineries, etc. There’s something for everyone, whether you’re super-active or super-relaxed.
The Place to Stay? With Us of Course!
Our guests are always pleasantly surprised by the location of Rainbow Trail Chalets. We are just a 2 minutes drive from down, but our stunning property is secluded and private… from your cottage, you wouldn’t even know there’s a town nearby. It’s the best of both worlds. What’s more, everything about the chalets is luxurious. Each building is separate and private, including private balconies and parking spaces. And each chalet is complete with only the best fittings, such as wooden floors, elegant spa baths and little extras like ipod docking stations and coffee machines.
Recommended Accommodation Down South
No matter how you’ve found this website today, whether it was recommended by Siri, by your mobile phone, by another site or by a friend, we’d love to welcome you to visit us here, down south! For room availability, simply check our book now button and book your stay with us today. We look forward to meeting you!
If you’re thinking of coming “down South” to Pemberton and booking a holiday to bring in the New Year of 2014, now is the time to do it! We still have a few vacancies over New Year’s and into January, but they’re sure to be snapped up quick.
News Year’s Eve in Pemberton – What’s On?
New Year’s Eve is always a fantastic celebration in Pemberton. Although we’re usually a quiet town, we certainly know how to put on a fireworks show… and not just one show, but two! Each year, the Pemberton Hotel (a.k.a. the local Pub!) puts on two fireworks displays. The first show starts at 9pm which is perfect for families with children who love fireworks but are too young to stay up until midnight. The second fireworks display is – of course – at 12pm midnight. The standard of the display is very high, each show lasting for quite some time and always with impressive fireworks that rival those in Perth City.
New Year’s Holiday Accommodation Options
When it comes to booking your New Year’s break in Pemberton, there are plenty of accommodation styles and choices of places to stay. Of course, we recommend our own Rainbow Trail Chalets and we’d love to welcome you. Our holiday cottages are perfect for people seeking an adult’s only getaway. We have a total of four luxury chalets and each one is secluded with its own private balcony, luxury spa bath, king sized bad and is fully self-contained.
Online Bookings – Availability for News Year’s
As always, you can book your stay with us online. Simply click the “Book Now” button to view chalet availability over the New Year period. At the time of writing we have a few nights available, but we’re sure to be booked out quickly, so don’t delay. We’d love to welcome the New Year with you!
Are you planning your honeymoon in Pemberton and looking for a quiet, luxurious, adult’s-only place to stay? If yes, you’ll love Rainbow Trail Chalets! Many of our guests are honeymooners or couples celebrating their anniversary or other romantic occasion. We’d love to you welcome you too!
Enjoy a little luxury
Imagine you and your partner enjoying a gorgeous spa bath overlooking stunning views of Karri forests and rolling green hills. Our wonderful spa baths are just one most loved features of our cottage-style chalet accommodation. What’s more, each chalet has its own private balcony and barbecue, fireplace, air-conditioning, king-size bed, polished wooden floorboards and more. We’ve even thought of the little extras like i-pod charging docks and Nespresso coffee machines. Everything you need is here.
Something for everyone – including you!
If there’s anything we’ve learned from our guests, it’s that everyone is different. While one couple might enjoy relaxing around the chalet not doing much at all, the next couple will be off adventuring, mountain bike riding, hiking and swimming. The wonderful thing about Pemberton is that no matter what you enjoy, there’s something for you. From leisurely bushwalks and wine-tasting, right through to climbing the Gloucester Tree!
A most romantic place to stay
Rainbow Trail Chalets in Pemberton is a wonderfully romantic place to stay on your honeymoon. Our accommodation is adults-only and we have only four chalets which are quite far apart, so you’ll feel like the only people on the property. You’ll enjoy the sounds of birds and wildlife as well as stunning karri forest views. The town of Pemberton is quaint, quiet and only a two minute drive from our secluded property. We recommend you pop into town to enjoy dinner or lunch and browse the stores and cafes.
Make your honeymoon booking today
With only four chalets available, be sure to book your honeymoon holiday early. If you’re looking for places to stay in Pemberton, we’d love to welcome you here, so please contact us today via our website.
Pemberton’s Hidden Little Treasure ‘Goblin Swamp’ is now perfect for visiting and honing those photography skills. A beautiful stand of Tea-Trees in a ‘Lord of the Rings’ style swamp (just missing Gollum); the reflection of the gnarly trees on the still water is just amazing. It can be a little tricky to find, but you don’t need a 4WD to get there.
Beedalup Falls also a must see right now; with more than our share of rain lately the waterfall is perfect. The short walk to and around the Falls is worth the effort, particularly as there is so many different types of fungus to be spotted and photographed at the moment (OK so the fungus may not of reeled you in, I understand).
If you want to visit either of these beautiful places just speak to Steve or myself and we can point you in the right direction. We usually give plenty of advice for things to do, see and eat for while you are staying at Rainbow Trail Chalets.
So remember Pemberton is at its best from now until October and Rainbow Trail Chalets does get a bit busy during those months, so book your accommodation in Pemberton soon so you don’t miss out on your preferred dates. We do have two ongoing specials, stay for 4 nights, pay for 3 or stay for 7 nights and only pay for 6.
Stay warm and cosy
If your planning a trip down in June I recommend going to the Manjimup Truffle Kerfuffle (TK13). It is being held on 22nd and will include wineries, food stalls, master classes, cooking demonstrations, free kids food classes, food discussion/truffle seminars. Also Truffle Dog competitions, Truffle orchard tours/hunts, local produce by way of the local farmers markets and a heap more. The night will be finished off with a 5 Course Gala Dinner prepared by some of the state’s finest Chefs – Hadleigh Troy, Russell Blaikie and Shane Watson. I had the chicken and truffle Paella last year for lunch at the TK13 and am now a new Truffle convert…Yum…I can recommend putting some truffle oil in your pantry.
Well, actually, they arrived a long time ago, we just couldn’t get a plumber to install them into each chalet. However, the dishwashers are in now and look great and I believe being used regularly.
Steve and I are always looking for ways to improve our chalets standards and since the recently installed Nespresso Coffee Machines and the dishwashers we believe that in conjunction with our chalet decor and furnishings, location and view we have almost nailed it. But, nothing is ever perfect, so onto the next project. This winter Steve and I (and anyone else we can wrangle in) will be on the shovels creating more gardens and parkland landscaping around our chalets. This is no easy task when we live on clay, but bring it on, it will be worth it in the long run. It is actually amazing how well native plants grow in our clay, already the shrubs and trees that we planted three years ago are looking great and have created the exact look we were hoping for.
So our luxury spa chalets are becoming more luxurious all the time.
21st January 2013
Question: Does Rainbow Trail Chalets have coffee machines.
Answer: Yes, Steve and I are trying really hard to keep our chalets not only totally clean and well maintained but modern as well. We have just put a brand new Nespresso Coffee Machine into each of our spa chalets. They are little beauties (yes, they were well trialled first by Steve, our resident coffee addict) and should be easy to use and clean. A few Nespresso capsules will be provided upon arrival and more will be available for purchase at reception if you need but BYO is certainly another option (Nespresso or Nespresso compatible pods only).
Rainbow Trail Chalets is now a ‘bike friendly’ accommodation provider. We are situated right on the Rainbow Trail and only a 1 and a 1/2km trail ride to Pemberton’s new mountain bike trail and skills track. So, Bring Your Bikes
Along. We have double bike racks at each chalet, an emergency bike repair kit at reception should you be unfortunate enough to have to borrow it and we have also put a bucket and large washing sponge in your chalet to wash your bikes down (that is, for ‘you’ to wash them down and not me). Wildflower season is coming up and a bike will be a great way to see them from our property.
