We had a great three days at the top floor apartment, (downstairs is just storage) with great views and perfect deck for chilling and birdwatching. Jim and Joan were the perfect hosts and gave us lots of local info for our walks and insight to the local community events and wineries. Everything provided for multiple breakfasts, as well as local produce from their farm - olives, avocados, eggs, lemons plus biscuits on arrival. We appreciated the aircon for a couple of days, just as the previous visitors, only a week before, appreciated the electric blankets and heater! Jilba is suitable for all weathers and a wonderful place to stay.

Jilba is a lovely relatively new cottage in a quite peaceful setting with the Porongorups on its doorstep and good walking tracks through the neighbouring bush. The cottage was spotless and very well amenitied for a family of four and the views from the enormous deck were spectacular. Joan and Jim were friendly and helpful hosts and the breakfast goods provided were substantial. It is within easy driving distance of Albany (40kms) where there are also many attractions. The property is not suitable for disabled persons as there are stairs required to reach the accomodation, and be aware that there is a few kilometres of well maintained gravel road to reach the cottage.

Thank you Joan & Jim for being such weloming thoughtful hosts. Your lovely cottage is the perfect place to stay to explore the Porongorup & Stirling Ranges National Parks.

The cottage is in a beautiful location. It is spotlessly clean. Our hosts were very welcoming. Food provided for breakfast was excellent.

Beautiful and peaceful location. Joan and Jim live in a house about 70 metres away - friendly and welcoming. The house is spotless. Kitchen is well equipped. The best thing about this place is the location, halfway between Albany and the Stirling Ranges (if you want to visit both) as well as being close (10 min) to walks and many wineries in the Perongarups. We spend a morning walking up Bluff Knoll in the Stirling Ranges (start early in the day to avoid the heat) and the other day in Albany. Both spectacular.
