Please note, we post all reviews in full and welcome feedback from our valued guests.
Oh my goodness - this really is a very special place. The house is located out of town, high up and looking right out over the fabulous ocean. At night it's the Milky Way that fills the sky and seems so close and clear. The house itself is beautiful and comfortable and full of interesting things. The owner was very kind and understanding when we needed to change details of our booking and Raylene, the property manager, was just wonderful - very generous and thoughtful with her time, and extremely helpful. Note that the villa's second bedroom is upstairs and can only be entered from a reasonably steep staircase outside. There isn't a bathroom up there so, if you are a group of older people like us, this option is a bit daunting. If possible and the Cabana is not occupied, it is worth it to rent it as well, in lieu of the upstairs bedroom. Luckily we were able to do so. Definitely a 5 star experience for us..
Lejano has many interesting features, the external stairs to the loft is a nod to a traditional Moorish design that can make a late night trip to the loo a bit more challenging, but also a great opportunity to gaze in wonder at the magnificent Milky Way. Lejano can be rented in a number of configurations so we encourage guests to take a look at the layout diagrams at the bottom of our accommodation pages and choose the layout that suits you best. I'm glad we that we were able to provide a 5* experience!
Lovely house with amazing location and views. The house had all the amenities. Sorry to leave and would highly recommend a stay.
Jerry and Marie, Denmark
The view is pretty special with the house designed to compliment the wonderful natural environment! Thank you for your lovely feedback.
I had a phenomenal time staying at Lejano and I will be returning in the future - hopefully for the Orcas in January! Lejano is a truly beautiful accommodation and makes you feel like you’ve truly got away. The local honey arrival gift was a beautiful (and delicious) touch.
The orcas of the Bremer Canyon are a good reason to plan a return trip, a real bucket list adventure. The local Kwongan Honey made by busy bees taking full advantage of the unique local flora provides a unique taste of the Great Southern. Glad you enjoyed it!
Well, what a treat it was staying at Cabana Lejano for the past few days. First time (but definitely not the last) in Bremer Bay, we were treated to some great weather and wildlife, and the Cabana Lejano was a bit of a hidden treasure to be honest. The information pack made it very easy to find and the facilities made it possible to relax.
Delighted to be able to provide you with an enjoyable stay and hope that we can help again for a future visit to our hidden treasure.
An amazing property and location. Definitely a hard place to leave. See you next time Lejano.
Anthony and Sara, Perth
Glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us and we look forward to welcoming you back on a future trip.
A truly unique accommodation with an exceptional location, thank you Mark for a wonderful experience that will last in our memories for a long time. 5 stars +.
Always a pleasure to welcome interstate travellers who are exploring our very special piece of Western Australia.
We recently spent four glorious days at Lejano Bremer Bay and we loved our stay. Set high on a hill with uninterrupted views of the ocean, the home is spacious and comfortable, and filled with interesting pieces of furniture and artefacts that complement the overall design. It was the perfect setting for us to relax and unwind, and enjoy our stay. We will be sure to return.
Sue and Dean, Perth
We feel that Lejano is the perfect spot to relax and unwind so delighted to hear that this was your experience.
Thank you so much, we had a lovely couple of days at Lejano. Pity we couldn't have stayed a few more days. Loved it. We definitely will be back. Michael.
Michael, Mt Eliza
Glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us as part of your Great Southern journey and look forward to seeing you back at Lejano in the future.
Amazing stay as always!!!
Delighted to have you come and stay with us again for such a wonderful occasion.
We spent four fabulous nights in the Cabana at Lejano Bremer Bay. Such a special place! The views are absolutely stunning, the colour of the water is beautiful and the villa is spectacular. We loved having access to our own private beach to relax on and with rock pools to explore. That view though… missing it already. We will definitely be returning!
Trish and Colin, Canada
Glad to hear that Lejano provided a memorable holiday, the direct private access onto the foreshore is a real perk of our location so glad to hear this was a highlight. Love to have you back in the future.
This is the third time we have stayed at Villa Lejano and it just gets better each and every time! The view is absolutely breathtaking, the crystal clear water and white sandy beaches of Bremer Bay are unbeatable. Mark is an outstanding host, incredibly accommodating! We are already planning our next trip back to Lejano!
We are so grateful to our return visitors and delighted to hear that you had another wonderful stay.
We loved our stay in the cabana at Lejano Bremer Bay. Such a peaceful, private place with beautiful views. We loved walking down to the beach and exploring the rock pools. The cabana has a well equipped kitchen and the bed was very comfortable. If only we could have stayed longer....
Nicole and Roger, Melbourne
Far away, but difficult to leave is how we describe it and it looks like you had the same experience. I'm glad we could be part of your travels through the beautiful south coast of Western Australia.
We had a lovely stay at the Lejano Cabana - the property is gorgeous and well furnished. The views were spectacular! On our first day, we looked out, and saw dolphins playfully jumping about in the sea! Each evening, we'd drive through Wellstead Road (near the museum), and were treated by a field full of kangaroos just hanging out! We'd love to come back one day - highly recommend!
Clarissa and Marcus, Singapore
We are very happy to welcome international visitors to our sea-side retreat and delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay and experienced some of the local wildlife. I must confess we can become a little blasé to the local mobs of kangaroos, but they are such beautiful animals and an iconic part of Australia. Please come and stay again when your travels next bring you to Australia.
A fabulous and outstanding place. The position and location is breathtaking. Everything was perfect. Cannot recommend it enough. Bremer Bay is probably the most beautiful place in WA. Mark was a great host and very helpful and accommodating. 10/10!
Gioia, Blue Bay NSW
Always delighted to show off our little piece of paradise, hidden away on the south coast of Western Australia. Particularly special to welcome back interstate travellers who once again are exploring the blue fringe of our beautiful wide brown land!
We have been to Lejano House three times and it is always difficult to leave. The views are wonderful, the dark sky is full of bright starts and the cosy and warm living room was perfect to watch the rain pouring down outside. Already planning our next trip to Bremer Bay!
We are grateful for the ongoing support and its wonderful see guests enjoy the many treasures of Lejano and the beautiful Pt Henry Peninsula. Whatever the weather delivers it just adds to the experience! Until next time....
We loved our break away. The leisurely drive to Bremer Bay stopping off at the towns along the way, yellow paddocks of canola and wildflowers all the way. Finally arriving to Lejano to a view that takes your breath away. Great house with everything you might need, peaceful, beautiful walks and the ever present ocean. Mark is a great host - we couldn't have wished for more.
They say that travel can be more about the journey than the destination, but we feel a trip to beautiful Bremer Bay delivers on both fronts! A great adventure providing experiences that are full of memories to cherish. Delighted to know that you had a great trip!
We had been wanting to visit for a couple of years and were so pleased when Mark was able to accommodate us Mid July, this location is second to none no matter the time of year. Completely private, relaxing and exhilarating, rainbows and whales out the window, you couldn't ask for more, and the local honey is supreme, Thanks again Mark
John and Louise, Perth
Thanks so much for the lovely feedback, looks like you encountered the full kaleidoscope of experiences that a trip to Bremer Bay offers the winter traveller. Glad you enjoyed the honey, a sweet local treat that reflects the unique and diverse flora that the bees forage on across the district and that indeed reigns supreme!
We had the most wonderful time at Bremer Bay - it is very, very beautiful, and Lejano just perfect with Moorish design features that make for gorgeous interiors, and an exterior very sympatico with the environment. The property has the best view we have ever experienced in our travels, especially as we could see Native Dog Beach where we surfed a couple of days. We feel very privileged you are sharing your beautiful home. Thank You
Jude, East Fremantle
The panoramic view makes it easy to check the surf conditions at Native Dog, the available parking spots on Blossoms Beach or to just soak it all in! Soon we will have Southern Right Whales frolicking in the bay with their new born calves as part of their seasonal winter migration, quite a spectacular sight. Very glad to hear that you had an enjoyable stay.
A truly incredible view from a stunning Villa! Amazing 180 degree vista of the bay and beautiful white sandy beaches and turquoise water - all to be seen from any room in the Villa. The Villa itself is unique and very comfortable. Sadly the inclement weather prevented us from seeing the Orcas but we did get a spectacular display of a large pod of dolphins surfing the waves at the bottom of the cliff. A truly magnificent site! We will be back next year.
Gaye and Nadene, Perth
As the W.C. Fields showbiz saying goes, Never work with Children or Animals, sometimes comes to us all but is always outweighed by the fun and beautiful memories such interactions bring, so bring on next year! It's a credit to the operators of the Bremer Canyon tours that trips are rarely cancelled and based on comfort considerations of paying customers as the vessels are designed for even more robust conditions. Dolphin pods are a pretty regular occurrence at Lejano and will soon be joined soon by magnificent Southern Right Whales to provide coastal whales watching with no boat required. Glad that the comfort and oceanfront position of Lejano helped outset the disappointment of the Orca postponement.
Lejano would have to have one of the best views we have ever experienced. The waves rolling in are mesmerising and we felt cosy as a couple in the one bedroom Cabana. Fabulous website with lots of local info and Mark was prompt with all communication. Thank you for sharing your house.
We are blessed with a remarkable view and it is always a delight to share this with travellers to beautiful Bremer Bay. For those drawn to the hypnotic spell of the ocean, whether it be whispering softly or screaming in a fit of malevolent rage, ...... the sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever, - Jacques Cousteau -
Over the past two years we have had most all of our domestic travel plans quashed due to Covid-19 which has been very frustrating. We have done our best venturing to destinations within Western Australia most of which were overrun with people wanting to get away just like; we've all had a very difficult journey. We had never been to Bremer Bay and read about the annual congregation of Killer Whales off the coast between February to April and signed up for a tour with Whale Watch Western Australia. In the search for accommodation which is limited in Bremer Bay during the whale watch season my wife came across Lejano where we accommodated for 5 nights. Regrettably; due to unseasonable weather our whale cruse was cancelled, however our journey from Perth was totally worth it. The relaxation in the solitude of Lejano a very unique Santa Fe - Moorish designed accommodation offering all of the comforts of home was very special. Nestled privately in the bush land a short journey from Bremer Bay, Lejano provides an amazing view of the Southern Ocean and nearby beaches. We missed the whales but loved the destination and will be back.
Steve and Gillian, Perth
Visits to Bremer Bay to venture forth to see Orca have become incredibly popular so I was disappointed to hear that Mother Nature got in the way. The amazing spectacle of the Bremer Canyon awaits your next visit and we hope Lejano can once again provide base camp for your Southern Ocean safari!
Lejano .......where to start! We held our wedding at Lejano, it is the perfect setting overlooking Dillon Bay, absolutely priceless views. The themed structure is just amazing and designed elements are quite unique. We were very comfortable at Lejano and all of our guest and our local providers all mentioned how taken they are by the property. We were fortunate enough to find all of our wedding vendors locally and the end results were more than we could hope for. Mark's correspondence during our planning stage was outstanding and couldn't have asked for more. We can't say enough about the property it is really a must see, a breath-taking experience. We feel very fortunate to have held our wedding at such an amazing venue. My wife and I would like to thank everyone involved in our journey at Lejano
Chris and Chrissy, Bridgetown
We were delighted to be able to play a small part in your amazing day. Normally we can't help with Weddings due to restrictions imposed by the local Shire so it was tremendous that you were able to work with us to make Lejano part of your very special day.
Loved It, the view is amazing it reminded me of my Croatian holiday a few years back. If you want something a little different then this is the place, its quirky and comfortable inside and you can sit in bed with a coffee and see the beach down the hill.
I've not yet been to Croatia, but the design of Lejano, the dry climate and rugged coast evokes images of many spots along the Mediterranean coast both on European side as well as the North African side. Travel to such exotic places has been difficult in recent times so we are pleased to provide an alternative and so glad to hear that you enjoyed the beauty of Bremer Bay.
This is the perfect house and location to slow down live for a while. Just watching the ocean, listening to the waves and looking up at the stars relaxes the mind and body. Spent a fantastic week with two other couples, cooking for each other, fishing, playing board games and chilling out. Supported the local business by buying some local wine, visiting the museum, the brewery, the resort restaurant and the homestead café. Highly recommended.
Julie, Golden Bay
We all need to indulge in a slow down from time to time so I'm glad to hear that you all had a memorable stay. Fabulous to hear that you supported the Bremer Bay economy and took advantage of the local offerings during your stay. We await the opportunity to provide a future slow down when the need arises!
We had 4 magical nights at Cabana Lejano enjoying the the views of the beautiful ocean on waking each morning and when toasting the the day's end at sunset. We climbed down to both beaches...once! We hiked at Point Ann and played golf. It was easy to stay in to cook in the evening and relax in a bright comfy setting.
Delighted to hear that you enjoyed the magic of Lejano, with plenty of outdoor pursuits to keep you active. The sunsets are particularly special and watching the sun do down is a lovely way to end the day. Hope to have you back another time.
We stayed with friends for 2 nights at Lejano and absolutely loved it! The house is amazing and luxurious with everything you could want provided. And the view...wow! Took our breath away. And we were lucky enough to see a whale frolicking in the bay from the comfort of the living room! We can't wait to come back.
Whale watching from the comfort of the couch is a new experience for most so glad to hear that you were able to witness one of nature's great spectacles during your stay.
A great escape where we could truly relax and unwind - even with two young kids who were kept busy exploring and playing outdoors. Breathtaking views from a beautiful, unique house with a Spanish/Moroccan feel that really caters for all. The fire kept us warm and toasty in the middle of winter and the well kept bush track was an easy walk to the waters edge. Mark provided us with some extra tips that southern right whales were in the area and we were able to see them close to shore at nearby Short Beach. We love Bremer Bay and Lejano is the best accommodation we have found there. We’re looking forward to our next visit!
Whale sightings from the beach are a captivating experience, so glad to hear that the Bay delivered. We look forward to welcoming you back when travel brings you our way again. Thanks for choosing Lejano Bremer Bay!
A wonderful experience actually. The view is magnificent you find yourself looking at it for hours. Generously provisioned and beautifully furnished...you are certainly in someone's home. A fabulous retreat for a group or family. Many thanks. Michael.
A wonderful experience for our guests is exactly what we are shooting for with a holiday at Lejano so very pleased to know that we succeeded.
First impression as you drive up to Lejano is of a beautiful holiday home right on the edge of the world overlooking the Great Southern Ocean. Nothing disappoints, the location is marvellous and the house provides the perfect canvas for a short or long stay. The highlight of our 3 day trip to Bremer was cooking paella and enjoying it hearing the waves crashing on the rocks below whilst we sat around the fireplace., we felt we were faraway from anywhere. The track down to the private bay was another must for any visitor.
I'm kinda fond of a nice paella so delighted to hear that the opportunity to prepare such a culinary delight in our piece of Espana was one of the highlights of our trip! Lejano loosely translates in Spanish to Faraway so I'm glad that you felt the pleasure in escaping to the remote beauty of the Great Southern, come back anytime!
When you come down the driveway to Lejano, you just naturally exhale! The location on Point Henry Peninsula, high up above Dillon Bay affords you one of the most spectacularly breath-taking views in the world. The ocean crashing below is awe inspiring! Lejano's unique design makes it a wonderful place to be in any weather, simply perfect when its warmer and warm and cosy when its cold, is provides an amazing vantage point to admire mother nature at her best. Drifting off to sleep and waking up to the sounds of the ocean is so relaxing and meditative, the very comfy bed helps too! Bremer Bay has kept its small town charm and makes you feel like you are off the grid, with some of the most beautiful beaches in Australia and the world, there is also Fitzgerald National Park on Bremer's doorstep, and of course Whale and Orca Watching depending on the season so there is plenty to see. Lejano is the perfect get away to simply just relax and recharge., we will definitely be back.
Beth and Tony, East Fremantle
Bremer is a hidden treat and whilst we are not quite off the grid it's getting pretty close! Delighted to hear that you had a wonderful stay and look forward to welcoming you back when the call of unspoilt places next beckons!
Just the most amazing views of the beach and a great bush walk to a hidden ocean rock pool. Fantastic accommodation, just loved the beautiful clean holiday vibe, felt so relaxed. Thankyou so much for sharing your paradise.
Jacquetta and Ian, Perth
The view is pretty special and so glad we were able to provide the perfect 'holiday vibe' in our own little piece of paradise!
We had the most wonderful stay at Lejano for our honeymoon in Dec 2020. We booked the two bedroom villa for just us because it was so well priced, we had this piece of paradise all to ourselves and spent the time at blossoms beach and wandering the town. We used the bbq each night watching the sunset and cooked up some local abalone from the hardware store. Thank you so much Lejano for making our honeymoon in our own state so amazing.
A honeymoon is such a special time, the start of a journey together, two beautiful souls intertwined by love ... to play our part in making your stay perfect is such a privilege and we are so glad to have contributed in a small way!
People would travel all over the world to find such a unique, special space. My partner and I were overwhelmed with the beauty of Lejano and the dreamy location it was set in. The architecture and decor is quite beautiful - its unique in the fact that it is so spacious yet feels so warm and cosy. The views at Lejano are truly spectacular, we marvelled at the changing landscape and turquoise water every day we were there. It was such a pleasure to have found Lejano and there is no doubt we will be back with plenty of family and friends to enjoy this remarkable place again. Thank you for having us 🙂
Uniqueness is something Lejano has in abundance, Moorish architecture of Morocco hidden away in the beautiful Great Southern of Western Australia. We are delighted to hear that your stay was an enjoyable one and look forward to providing a similar experience next time your journey brings you to Lejano!
You find a constant smile on your face. Fantastic turquoise waves crashing below, stylish decor, multiple entertaining and lounging sun traps and the always sort after comfy bed.
Yep I reckon you captured it pretty well! Delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay, the solar passive design of the house offers lots of comfy spots to lounge. Love to have you back in the future.
Truly incredible, Casa Lejano holds its own among some of the best places to stay in the world. I have been lucky enough to have travelled far and wide, and rarely have I felt this astonished by the sheer beauty of this villa's incredible position. Bremer Bay has a unique, wild and spectacular coastline; an ocean of stark contrast and extraordinary endless blue. Casa Lejano unabashedly flaunts this view like a slap in the face - every morning you wake; every space you linger; every wine sip you take! The interior is sublime, the host is generous and the network can't find you. It's the perfect stay.
It is a pretty special spot and you're not alone in your reaction, I feel blessed every time we come down. Extracting yourself from the rigours and demands of ordinary life is essential from time to time, food for the soul!
We had a wonderful stay albeit too short. The views were spectacular and there was plenty of room for our two families. The villa was spacious whilst still being cosy. We all enjoyed exploring the path down to the beach and loved the relative isolation. Would love to stay again.
Mark, delighted to have you stay and glad to hear you enjoyed your time at Villa Lejano. The walk down to the foreshore is very rewarding. Perhaps we can entice you back down for the summer experience? Thanks very much for coming to stay.
Thanks for a wonderful stay at your villa Lejano on the weekend. Everything about it was unbelievable !! The uniqueness of the villa and the amazing position & view made me feel like I.was holidaying in some remote location somewhere on the other side of the world. We holiday regularly at a place past Esperance. We go purely for the environment, not the accommodation... but what I’m getting to is that I’m so used to having to take everything as NOTHING is provided, save a few completely dilapidated , bordering on dangerous pots & pans, so to arrive at the villa and discover glad wrap, Alfoil, paper towel, Oil, tea bags , coffee pods, BREAD MACHINE & BREAD MIX !!!! Oh my gosh & the list goes on ... It was amazing. We were also blessed to have the company of a whale and calf one evening and then watched a large pod further out to sea the following day. I would have to say it was one of the most enjoyable and relaxing mini holidays I’ve had for a long long time. We were so blessed to have amazing weather too and we enjoyed venturing down to the water via the VERY well manicured path. I couldn’t stop looking at the view. It was mesmerising. We really didn’t bother venturing out much at all as it was just so enjoyable to stay put there. WONDERFUL !! we’ll be back, for sure!
Jo, we are delighted that we were able to provide the setting for a great holiday. Under the current situation with limited travel the house really does offer the opportunity to travel across the globe, without leaving the state. Good to hear of more whale sightings and sounds like the weather was spot on, even in the depths of winter. We look forward to welcoming you back.
Wow! We stayed 3 nights at the totally beautiful and unique Villa Lejano with another couple. Villa Lejano was a completely joyous experience. The location and setting is quite simply spectacular with the best uninterrupted views we have seen anywhere on the south coast. We were blessed with stunning mild winter weather. Clear warm windless days with blue skies and amazing sun sets. The wood and traditional clay chiminea provided a lovely warm outside fire while enjoying the evening with a few wines. Great to also have a slow combustion wood heater inside! The villa itself is a stunning display of eclectic Moorish design and decore. Rich detail and natural textures abound in surfaces and objet d'art. Couple of interesting quirks (outdoor stairway to upstairs room and no shower rose above bath in main suite), but these simply added to the overall uniqueness of the experience. All agreed that we would definitely stay again however with two couples, and if dollars allow, just book the whole Casa Lejano and enjoy. Owners were very helpful. Thank you.
Steve and Jennifer, Albany
Steve and Jennifer, Thanks very much for sharing your Villa Lejano experience. We are delighted that you had a memorable stay in our beautiful part of the Great Southern and look forward to welcoming you back in the future. The house is a unique development and we owe a debt of thanks to the previous owners who built the house with great thought and utilising both local materials and unique elements foraged on overseas journeys. It really is a one-off and a true credit to their vision.
We loved the fabulous setting and the stylish decor. Everything we needed was available. The ocean view with its changing moods was company enough in the isolated bush setting. The booking process and communications with Mark were professional and seamless. We have booked for another stay we liked it so much.
Hi Roy, I'm glad we could provide a relaxing trip away. The location is secluded and remote, we feel its perfect to recharge the soul and are delighted that you are planning a return.
What a view! We have stayed in a few places in Bremer Bay (with lovely views), but this one has the best! The decor and style of the property was very interesting. We have not stayed in a place like it. Loved the deep bath and private courtyard. The waves crashing onto the rocks was actually very serene. On our final morning, as if we had ordered them, a pod of dolphins played in the waves right in front of the property! There is a path that goes down to the beach, which is a lovely walk down, but hard work coming back up, except for my partner, who ran up (several times!). The place is 'open plan', so privacy was a bit of a problem (only because the guests with us preferred to sleep in and we wake early), but it didn't spoil our enjoyment of the place. We had a lovely time! Read, drank wine, ate lovely meals and explored the local beaches and National Park. We will be back!
Hi Ruth, those dolphins are pretty regular visitors and we currently have Southern Right Whales arriving as well through winter! Glad to hear that you had a great time during your visit to beautiful Bremer Bay! The view never gets old, each time I arrive I'm in awe. When dolphins or whales drop in it is even better. The Villa is quite open plan but another option when travelling as a group is a full house rental, perfect for two couples travelling together or extended family and the Cabana bedroom has a good set of blinds, perfect for those who prefer a sleep-in! We also offer a ground-floor only option where the third bedroom is not required. We look forward to welcoming you for a future visit and thanks for supporting Lejano during difficult times, we are very grateful.
Hi David, glad to hear that those dolphins I organised turned up at the right time! Thanks very much for the wonderful feedback, I'm one part of a dedicated team that works hard to make the Lejano experience memorable so it's great to get confirmation that our efforts are delivering. Hopefully we can once again offer a great place to stay once COVID-19 is behind us and the world returns to normal, fingers crossed soon!
We stayed at Casa Lejano for 6 nights in January and had a wonderful time. The views as you drive into Lejano are simply breathtaking and the Casa is constructed with those breathtaking views in mind. The sounds of the southern ocean stay with you for your whole stay and they add to the wildness of this spectacular coastline. Waking up in the morning you have superb views from the main bedroom and then from the living area. Bremer Bay has kilometres of coastline to walk and direct access to the 10km Dillon beach is provided from Lejano. The accommodation itself is rustic and excellently furnished. Some days the wind howled. Lejano is built for these conditions and the wind added to our adventure. On other days the wind was a refreshing breeze that kept the temperature to a very pleasant 26 degrees. We will be back to enjoy this most beautiful part of WA.
Hi Jane, sounds like you experienced all of the things that make Lejano special. The wildness of the location is what drew us in and the ability to enjoy it with an unobstructed view now and into the future as such places become harder to find. We are delighted that you enjoyed sharing this feeling and you are very welcome to return for a future holiday. Thanks very much for supporting local tourism down here in the bay.
We stayed at Villa Lejano for two nights in early November. Because of its location, directly facing the ocean, views from the living areas and bedroom were nothing short of spectacular. The accommodation is Moroccan style, open plan, stylishly and strikingly decorated. Everything we needed to make us comfortable was provided. It's the kind of place that's perfect for a retreat from the world, totally secluded, private and serene. It's quite exposed however and during our stay very windy outside with frequent rain storms which discouraged much exploring of the surrounds unfortunately. However inside it was cosy and warm and looking out on that untrammelled vista of roaring sea was an amazing experience. Mark is a pleasure to deal with, friendly, accommodating and instantly responsive. Would love to go back for another visit.
Anne, South Australia
Hi Anne, thanks for sharing your experience. Real shame about the weather, alas we can control many things but the weather rests in the lap of the gods. I do agree that the view of the storms can be captivating from the comfort of the house and typically they pass pretty quickly. With luck we can deliver a better weather outcome if you are able to make a return visit. You would be very welcome.
Wow wow & wow! Who would have thought this existed in our own backyard. Amazing location, pristine waters and whales frolicking in your front yard daily, truly magical! The accommodation has a bohemian style which lends itself to a relaxed & comfortable ambience, with all needs met. We will be returning to “Casa Lejano” on a regular basis, a truly amazing destination.
Hi Suzanne, thanks for the lovely review, memorable experiences are what we strive to provide all of our guests. The whale season has been epic this year and provides a great opportunity to see these magnificent creatures, wild and free as nature intended. We look forward to have you return in the future.
After planning a trip to see the whales at Point Ann with friends, we decided, rather than our original plan to camp, to book something more ‘weather friendly’. Lejano did not disappoint. Nor did the whales. What an amazing experience. Having been to Bremer Bay twice before to experience the Orcas of the Bremer Canyon, the Southern Right Whales in the Bay was a truly magical experience.
The house is really interesting, well appointed and comfortable with amazing views. I’d definitely stay again if in Bremer Bay again.
Tracey, Lower Chittering
Hi Tracey, I'm delighted that your trip to Bremer was a success. Camping is a great holiday option and Point Ann is a fabulous spot, but enjoying Southern Right Whales from the comfort of Casa Lejano we think is a pretty good option too! We would be thrilled to have you come and stay the next time your travels bring you to beautiful Bremer Bay.
A lovely stay at the very comfortable Villa Lejano, in a fantastic location to explore the beaches and wild headlands of Bremer Bay. Look forward to returning when the whales are in the bay.
Hi Dave, very pleased to hear that the trip to Bremer Bay was good. Southern Right Whales begin to appear from June and stick around through until late September, normally they can be seen directly from the house, a most spectacular sight. We'd love to have you back for another stay!
Awe inspiring views in an awe inspiring location. Loved our stay at Casa Lejano and can’t wait to get back !! Thoroughly recommend xxx.
Hi Jo, happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay and grateful for your recommendation. Please come back and see us soon.
My wife and I have just returned to Perth after three wonderful days in Bremer Bay. We loved your 'Cabana Lejano'. Woww! Such a fabulous place - and the setting and view is just truly amazing!!! The vistas over the ocean are ones that you normally would just dream about seeing. I walked right down to the rock pool and took a lot of photos. Thank you for allowing us to stay at your special place. We will visit Bremer Bay again, and will definitely want to stay at Lejano again.
Hi Derek, really pleased to hear your visit to the bay was a good one! The view is pretty special and definitely has the wow factor. We would love to have you back next time holidays beckon and thanks for such kind words!
This was our second stay at Villa Lejano and would love to return again. The views are amazing as is the house. It certainly has the wow factor. Love the walk down to the beach each morning and going to sleep with the soothing sound of the ocean. Thanks for letting us stay.
Hi Narelle, always a pleasure to welcome back guests and good to hear that you had another great stay. We look forward to providing a great holiday experience for a future stay!
We had the most amazing stay at Cabana Lejano! Cosy, well-equipped house with the most insane views over the ocean. We loved it and are already planning our next trip back!
Sally, Margaret River
Hi Sally, yes the view is pretty epic. We plan to further trim back the wattle to provide some additional bush fire protection so the view will be even better. We would love to have you back in the future!
We loved our stay in Lejano House, it is so relaxing and the views are amazing. The walk to Rock Pool every morning was great! Looking forward to visit it during winter time!
Hi Marlise, thanks for staying with us, we are delighted that you had a good time. The ocean pool is well worth the walk and a great way to enjoy the views across Dillon Bay not to mention a chance for a refreshing swim. A future winter trip provides a great opportunity to see Southern Right Whales directly in front of the house as mother and calve prepare for a return to Antarctic waters.
Fantastic Spanish/Morrocan Villa perched on the cliff above the turquoise Southern Ocean, stunning place to spend a few days. Villa is fitted out with everything you require, feels just like you are in your own home. We will back to stay and have no hesitation in recommending to our friends to do put it on the “must do” list. Only small improvement would be an outside shower in the private courtyard!
Hi Nick, glad that you enjoyed the house and agree that the coastal views are hard to beat. Agree that an outdoor shower would be a good addition to help wash off the salt and sand after a relaxing day at the beach. Thanks very much for your help in promoting the house and we look forward to welcoming you again in the future.
This was our second trip to Bremer Bay and to Lejano and no doubt not the last! We loved it every minute of it. The house is fantastic, the location inspiring, the surrounding incredible. A truly amazing place to stay. The house has everything you need to make you feel at home, including quirky books, and coffee machine! Thank you guys for letting us stay in your piece of paradise.
Hi Claudia, it's always great to welcome back previous guests and I'm delighted that you all had a good time! This is a special piece of the world and we love sharing it with our guests. See you next time!!
This is a truly wonderful place to stay, so private and the views are spectacular I cannot rave about them enough, it is truly mesmerising, we were lucky enough to see the whales from the warmth of the house. The house itself is gorgeous, very comfortable with everything catered for, truly luxurious! A wonderful stay and thank you the privilege to stay in such a wonderful place.
Hi Louise, I'm so glad we could contribute to a memorable stay. The whales are truly captivating and I'm delighted they paid you a visit, to see them close to the shore is always special!
WOW! ….. And that was pretty much the word we were calling out to each other intermittently as we arrived and quietly unpacked for our 7 day holiday. Your webpage is good but there is nothing like the real thing. We knew this was going to be special….and, it was! The power and views of the Southern Ocean coming directly into our sojourn was more than just breathtaking. Facing out with the two headlands on either side, the expanse of the water, the waves crashing below, the sunset to the right and the quietness and location of privacy - we were, and still are simply lost for words!!! Paradise….bloody close! Thank you again for providing a little piece of stunning paradise in this very fast pace world…..we so needed it!.
Phil and Deb, Perth
Hi Phil and Deb, we love your reaction to the house, exactly the response we aim for with all of our guests! We agree that the location is very special and really love when guests enjoy the stay as much as we do. I'm glad you found the beds to be comfy. We look forward to welcoming you for a future visit.
Rarely does a host impress to this degree, it is difficult to find words to express the exceptional level of service delivered by Mark right from enquiry stage, during our stay and through to checking out. The quality of the property is exceptional - every possible need is met and the view is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! We loved our time at Lejano so much that we extended our stay and wished we had never had to leave - we look forward to future stays. It was our first stay in Bremer and ohhh was the weather wild and SUPER cold, but what better place to watch the storm over the ocean and settle in with fine wine and a few board games by the fire. The highlight of the view was the 20+ pod of dolphins that passed right in front of the property. If Lejano is booked when you plan to go to Bremer, do yourself a favour, change your dates and make your holiday work around this place - it truly is a fabulous, relaxing experience. Thank you Mark for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home, The 3 Kirby's.
The 3 Kirbys, Denmark
Hi Jacqueline, I'm delighted that the 3 Kirbys enjoyed their trip to Bremer Bay and very glad that we were able to contribute to that experience. Winter storms are something to behold, but perhaps you can plan a return during summer to take in a bit more sunshine, we look forward to welcoming you back!
Mark, Lejano Bremer Bay
Lejano...amazing. Incredible views and a beautiful home equipped with everything you could need. Highly recommend for a relaxing break. Will be returning!
Hi Jan, It is a special spot and the view never grows old! We look forward to having you stay with us again, thanks for choosing to stay with us on your trip to Bremer Bay.
Mark, Lejano Bremer Bay
We planned an exceptional weekend in Bremer with friends from Brookton and Albany. We never expected Lejano to be as luxurious and inviting. The only thing we did not want to do was leave. The home grown roast of lamb we cooked matched the cool night, a lovely local red and wonderful cosy fire. Beds and linen were oh so comfortable with plenty of space to share with five people. There was everything we needed in kitchen and bathrooms. The easy walk to the rock pools and beaches was remarkable and that view...worth a mint. Thank you for letting us share it. We loved it all. We had one small hitch but after calling Wendy, she attended to that on Sunday with no hesitation. Thank you for ensuring this house was even better than the advertisement. We will be back soon!
Hi Amanda, thanks so much for the lovely feedback. I'm very glad we could contribute to your exceptional weekend and that your stay at Lejano Bremer Bay exceeded your expectations. We feel that the flexible layout options of our property lends itself well to both families and groups. A delicious lamb roast sourced from the great southern, some local red wine and a roaring fire brings it all together! I'm pleased we were able to play our part and we would love to have you back the next time a memorable weekend with friends is required.

Lejano Bremer Bay is a unique, stunning place of accommodation with awe-inspiring views of the ocean and coastline. The homemade welcome cookies were delicious! The gorgeous beach and rock pools below were only a short walk down. I am pretty sure we chose the best place to stay at in Bremer Bay. Coupled with the incredible Orcas and wildlife in this area, Bremer Bay touched my heart and we will definitely be back for more!
Hi Venissa, I'm very glad you enjoyed your stay in Bremer Bay and thank you for such kinds words about our house. Most visitors are surprised by the many unique things to experience in the region and begin planning a return even before they leave. We like to think of Bremer Bay as a hidden treasure, far away but difficult to leave, a sentiment I think you share after your visit. Once again thank you and hope to see you back again soon.

A piece of paradise is how I would describe Lejano Bremer Bay. I could not have asked for a more perfect place to stay to have 'get away' from life responsibilities. The ease with which Mark handled my first enquiry to our arrival at night (easy instructions to follow) which lead us to our home for the next four nights made our whole experience a hassle free and delightful one. If you want a place that has everything ..... spectacular views, plush furniture, comfortable bath tub, fireplace to name a few ... look no further! Thank you
Hi Liesl, we could not agree more! We much appreciate the wonderful feedback and stand ready to welcome you back whenever a return to Bremer Bay is next on your horizon. The fireplace and the bath make a winter visit lovely and with whale watching from the house a relaxing break is always available.

Arriving at dusk, unlocking the gate chain and slowly driving along a short winding track to what looked like a Spanish mansion that had been thoughtfully left with the lights on so we could find our way. What a most spectacular, comfortable, homely, 'home away from home' stay on Black Rocks Road. Lejano comes fully equipped with everything you could imagine. Great Linen, really comfortable beds. Pizza oven which we used, bbq which we used. Even our own rock pool at the bottom of the hill. Loved our stay... did not want to leave! Thank you.
Hi Lindy, we think the house and location are pretty special to, but its always a delight to receive such lovely feedback. We love sharing this special place so thanks so much for visiting the beautiful Great Southern. We hope we can have you return again in the future!
Mark, Lejano Bremer Bay
What a perfect two-night stay we had at Villa Lejano! I couldn’t believe what an amazing view we had from all vantage points, the sight, sound and smell of the ocean and the night sky! The villa was gorgeous with absolutely everything we needed and more, nothing was a disappointment! We could easily have stayed on...and on...such a relaxing and peaceful place to be. Even the booking process was great with Mark offering all kinds of helpful information on things to see and do in the area. Thank you! I know I would definitely like to make a return visit, it was just so different and unique and along with seeing Orcas in Bremer Bay Canyon, Lejano was definitely a highlight of our trip!
Hi Joanne, when you're up against the star power of the Bremer Canyon orcas I'm glad we were able to shine. I'm delighted that Lejano was considered the highlight of your trip and we would love to have you back. Perhaps you could check out the second coming of the whales during winter when Southern Right Whales arrive in the Bremer Bay maternity ward to calve?
Mark, Lejano Bremer Bay
Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay at the Cabana last week. Stunning location and most comfortable. Although the weather was somewhat inclement, it didn't stop us doing most of the things we wanted to do. Great rock pools down at the beach also, with a friendly octopus in one! We are hoping to come back again in a few weeks time. Thank you for the opportunity to stay in such a lovely place!
Hi Julie, thanks for the great feedback, I'm delighted that all went well. The ocean pools are great for swimming in summer time but at other times they offer a great opportunity to spy all manner of interesting sea creatures! As we move closer to summer the weather will be more settled so a return trip should offer a bit more sunshine!
Mark, Lejano Bremer Bay
We had a wonderful four day stay at Lejano in the wildflower season. The residence has a sublime location (overlooking the Southern Ocean from an adjacent cliff top), an interestingly different house (Moroccan style) and all facilities needed for good holiday living in any season. We were well looked after by helpful owners and the local area manager. A memorable holiday!
Hi Kevin, glad you had a great time and enjoyed the wildflower displays. The view is pretty special even if the weather is not always kind. Perhaps we can have you visit us again in summer and see a different side to Lejano Bremer Bay
Mark, Lejano Bremer Bay
My hubby and I had a 3 night stay at Villa Lejano ( 3-6 Sept 2017)....what a spectacular setting with views forever. The house is located atop a cliff with beautiful beach vegetation surrounding it, so lots of wildflowers and birds. The décor is wonderfully eclectic, and the fireplace was most welcome when the winds set in. Lejano was a great place to stay and suited our plans to rest awhile and to set off into the Fitzgerald NP. Loved it!!
Hi Sandra, we very much appreciate your kind words. The good winter rain has produced a wildflower extravaganza across the district making a visit to the Great Southern region highly rewarding. Thanks for choosing to stay with us and hopefully we can attract you back from sunny Queensland sometime in the future.
Mark, Lejano Bremer Bay
Once again we had a wonderful time at Villa Lejano, with the magnificent ocean view, whatever the weather. The cosy wood fire which quickly warms the house, a plentiful supply of wood, and electric heaters if the need arises. I also love the big window which allows the winter sun in, an makes another ideal place to sit an relax and read. The luxurious bath with a great hot water system to allow a long soak in the chilly weather. The bed is very comfortable with a great view to wake up to. We were lucky to see a whale and her calf in the water below the house, which made it extra special. Thank you Mark for sharing Villa Lejano, and attending to any requests we have made. Also the nightly rates are very reasonable.
Thanks for your feedback Cathy. Winter is a lovely time to visit Bremer with the whales being an added bonus! The weather can be unpredictable but the recent rains will provide the perfect fuel for a wonderful wildflower season as spring approaches. It's great to see our guests deriving as much pleasure as we do when we come to stay. Look forward to seeing you again sometime soon.
Mark, Lejano Bremer Bay
Thanks for having us to stay. We had a fantastic time in your beautiful house. The kids were very upset we had to go home. We will definitely be back if possible. Thanks again, Andrew and Julie.
Always hard to go home from a great holiday! Glad you all enjoyed your time and we hope to see you again soon.
Mark, Lejano Bremer Bay
We love love LOVED staying at your place! The highlight of our two weeks in WA! A truly special piece of the world, complete with an awesome property to stay in! Our group is unanimous that next time we'd head straight to Bremer & just have the wine sent there!
Thanks for the lovely feedback! Obviously we agree whole heartedly and fortunately the Great Southern region has some wonderful wineries, most that offer delivery.
Mark, Lejano Bremer Bay
Enjoyed absolutely every minute of our stay at Cabana Lejano! Such a beautiful little 'home' with a gorgeous view that made our weekend all the more special! Will definitely be going back soon!
Glad you enjoyed your stay Jessica, it would be lovely to have you come back to soak in a bit more of the view!
Mark, Lejano Bremer Bay
We stayed at Lejano for 6 days over the Xmas break what an absolute great house had everything we needed plus more. There were 6 of us staying with plenty of room for all to have our own space if needed. Loved all the decor very arty, great access to beaches and loved walking down to ocean via track. Great experience had by all, would definitely stay there again, a definite must stay in Bremer Bay!
Linda, Lake Grace
Thanks Linda, I'm really glad you loved the house and we hope to see you back with us again!
Mark, Lejano Bremer Bay
We stayed at Lejano for three nights in July and absolutely loved it! What a great space....amazing location and views and the building itself an absolute pleasure to be in. I cannot recommend more highly. Mark was great as the host and very responsive. We only wish it was closer to Hobart so we could go there often!
Thanks Siobhan, your comments are very much appreciated. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay as part of your epic journey from the Apple Isle!
Mark, Lejano Bremer Bay
Lovely relaxing stay after a difficult start. The house is fabulous, with unique creative decor, everything you need supplied and a big comfortable bed. The setting is sensational with stunning views out to sea, perfect for whale watching. We arrived in the afternoon of a cold, wet windy day and had trouble getting in as the key was jamming, but eventually got in to find there was hardly any wood and the house very cold. Luckily, a phone call mobilised Rosemary who arrived with lots of wood and was extremely helpful with anything we needed. Once the house warned up, we really enjoyed the wood fire, which we needed as it was quite windy and chilly the whole time we were there. But there were also some lovely sunny spells and we enjoyed walks to the beach, drives around in to town and out and about, bird watching, wildflower exploring and also just sitting around chilling out and reading books and watching DVD's. It was so quiet and peaceful, we really felt refreshed and rejuvenated after our stay. It's an unusual house and probably not for everyone (open bathroom, upstairs 2nd bedroom with outside stairs) so check if it's for you, but if you think it will suit, you'll enjoy it immensely.
Hi Catlyne, thanks for your helpful feedback. We appreciated your patience whilst we sorted out a few teething problems. As you experienced first hand the winter weather can be wild, invigorating, but the salt air is hell on locks and latches. Our apologies for the firewood shortage, our regular delivery had been delayed, apparently the fish had been biting! Thankfully Rosemarie is always on hand to efficiently deal with such eventualities so I'm pleased we were able to respond quickly. Bremer Bay is such a perfect weekender from Albany so we hope to have you come visit again sometime soon. Thanks again!
