A great place, perfect for couples. Relaxing or an active break, it is all available on the doorstep. Awesome location with free bikes and kayaks available and the Lucky Bay Brewery 4 minutes away, simply couldn't ask for any more!

We spent 8 peaceful and relaxing nights over Christmas in a King Shack. On the morning of our arrival, we received a very informative welcome text message with our shack number & location, directions and other key information. The accommodation is ‘self-check-in / check-out’ which we loved. Complimentary bikes, fishing rods and kayaks are nearby the shed for anyone to use, there’s shared outdoor fire pits and we were also offered the use of sunshade/umbrella for at the beach. The King Shacks are the premium rooms and are not the A framed structures, our shack was decorated so beautifully and tastefully. The shack has a new bathroom fitted with a lovely big bath and the most amazing separate rain shower, that throws the water at you - we loved it. In the bathroom there is all natural shampoo, conditioner and body wash provided in 500ml pump bottles affixed to the wall, along with a couple of little bottles of hand lotion. These products are by ‘Appelles’, we loved them so much we have ordered some online for home. There is an upholstered long bench seat and seating area like a dining area next to the kitchen as you enter the shack and a little lounge like reading nook in the bedroom area that has an amazingly comfortable chair that honestly I could have slept in. There’s a TV that is mounted on the wall facing the bed with Netflix and Stan logged in and available. The power points on both side of the king bed (& in the kitchen) have USB ports built into them which was great. The king size bed was very comfortable and cosy with lovely linen sheets and plenty of blankets, as it gets cold at night. Our shack had reverse cycle aircon and a kitchenette with a full-size gas oven and a half size fridge. It was a nice surprise to open the fridge and find a lovely bottle of mimosa & sparkling water with a xmas card, Thank You. There was also a coffee machine & capsules, microwave and all the pots, pans and cooking utensils you need while on holiday, things like foil, cooking oil, salt & pepper etc were also provided. There’s a BBQ on the back veranda and a couple of chairs and a table. We didn’t mind being a short distance out of town on the Bandy creek, it was so quiet and peaceful. Fiona was great to deal with during the booking process and helped us out greatly and always kept an eye out for us during our stay, however we didn’t want for anything as it was all provided! The owners have grand plans for the village, they have a little function area for elopements, seeking council approval for a lap pool and they are also looking to provide meal options on site. We would not hesitate in recommending to others (we already have) and of course staying again ourselves. A few things to consider: - We found the weather can go from very hot to very cool and it was also very windy – so pack your bags ready for all conditions. - If you’re going to visit the national park many times during your stay, go online or visit the tourist office in town to buy a multi-day pass its cheaper and quicker. - Take fly and mosquito repellent. - Take a helicopter ride over Esperance in the summer time and see all the beautiful colours of the coast and pink lake and get your bearings. - A few things we enjoyed while in Esperance; Drive along Great Ocean road, drop into Coffee Cat down on the foreshore for a nice brew, visit the French hot bread shop in town for lovely fresh rolls and other bakery items, visit Bob & Jims general store, stop by for an ale or 2 at Lucky bay brewing and spend a few days at Lucky bay and Hellfire bay in the National Park, be warned though the water is absolutely freezing!

It took us a while to make our way to Esperance. Whether it was pure laziness to drive 7.5hrs from Perth or most likely, the lack of decent accommodation. Maybe that’s harsh. There is plenty of decent accommodation available in Esperance, but unfortunately the prices are not commensurate to the actual offer which is not unusual in Western Australia. Things are expensive here, no wonder camping is so popular. After some research we found ECV’s website and quickly booked a chalet for our family of four. I am writing this review as we pack our bags to return home after 5 great nights in this place. There are the different chalets (we stayed in a two bedroom), outdoor fire pits, hammocks, available bikes, kayaks and a creek - when returning from any of Esperance’s amazing beaches, that’s a pretty good place to be. The couple who own ECV have found a niche. The place is not intended to be posh nor fancy, it is unique though. It’s a mix of well crafted decor and architecture coupled with a well thought site masterplan which is clearly a work in process. The place is evolving, and surely for the better. If it is great now, imagine in the near future! It is common knowledge that when anything is made with love and care it exceeds expectations. ECV translates such theory in every detail and we look forward to coming back to check its next chapters.

Spent six beautiful nights at ECV and it was really beautiful. The attention to detail and the quality of the furnishings is outstanding and makes the stay so much more pleasant. Location is also great just out of town but an easy cycle on one of the ECV bikes. A real pleasure to stay there and would highly recommend to anyone wanting accommodation in Esperance. Thanks again Fiona

What a gem - just 10 mins on the outskirts of Esperance township, set in a rural setting, this lovely village sits beside the crystal clear waters of the Bandy river, and 5 min walk to the beach. The “shack” Was very clean and comfortable. Bicycles and canoes are free to use. The owner extremely friendly & helpful. If you want a quiet relaxing time this is the place.
