AMAZING TOURIST & LIFESTYLE OPPORTUNITY
Set in the heart of the iconic tourist destination the Porongurup National Park, where 30,000 visitors a year head for the walk trails and natural beauty of Karri, granite, and spectacular lookouts.
The property is also ideally suited for tourists to the Stirling Range National Park with WA’s highest peak Bluff Knoll. The area attracting plenty of wine and wildflower visitors.
The present Owners chose lifestyle over profit and limited promotion to a minimum, yet still achieved modest profits. With the massive resurgence of Domestic tourism in the new Covid world, domestic tour operators are seeing record occupancy and enquiries. The time has never been better.
The replacement cost of the buildings would alone be in excess of double the asking price. Opened in the 1970s and finally trading as the Porongurup Chalets, it closed due to sad personal circumstances in 2016.
Set among tall eucalypts and natural bushland on 10,774 sqm, the 7 self contained chalets include a lounge, dining area, fully equipped kitchen, bathroom and 2 bedrooms upstairs [NB:1 chalet has only 1 bedroom]. There is also a double garage, laundry with undercover drying area .
Presently another singled bedded chalet serves as a guest reception, office, and storage space. The current Owners converted 2 chalets next door into a home.
With little renovation since the 1970s the current Owners sympathetically have updated the property. Designed as a welcoming retreat after a day’s activity, the accommodation is well furnished and has heating, and entertainment equipment. Most linen was commercial hired, saving time and effort.
Chances like this do not come along very often, the property has only had 3 owners (including the present from 2004) since construction in the mid 1970s. An inspection of this unique property, and the excellent value it represents, is recommended for those considering a tree change and potentially tourism enterprise in an exceptional part of the world.
