Men can have trouble when it comes to romantic thinking but with a little prompting & helpful advise you can be very romantic. A suggestion for great ideas please follow this link to help you on your way to winning back & keeping the love of your life.
(Please ignore & close any pop-up's that you may encounter)

Everywoman loves some special intimate time together with their partner away from the everyday distractions. Considering the prices of relationship counselors these days your retreat is a very good investment.

When was the last “exculsive time out together in a romantic setting?”

Let’s explore some proven ideas for you to plan that special weekend away…

The element of surprise

Everyone loves a surprise and your partner will relish the effort you made for her. So keep it a secret until the last minute when you can ask her to pack for the weekend. If you are both busy people, make sure your partner has nothing planned.

Make all of the arrangements

The secret to the best romantic experience is to do all of the thinking and make all arrangements. This starts at the planning and for the most part, continues throughout the weekend. Make baby-sitting arrangements if necessary as well.

Selecting a place to stay - try a different experience

Yelverton Brook can offer varied experiences with a touch of luxury to a full blown “everything escape".

Travel to Yelverton Brook by car from Perth is about 2 1/2 – 3 hrs.

You can fly in 30mins from Jandekot and pick up a hire car in either Busselton or Margaret River as Yelverton Brook is midway.

Another mind blowing idea is private limo service from Perth to Yelverton Brook by a Holden Statesman $300 each way or Ford Ltd Stretch is $440 each way.

Go for luxury

Ask about views when selecting and booking the place to stay – central location is vital to explore the local area. A large spa is very preferable. Yelverton Brook offers you large private 6 person sized "spas under the stars".

Book as far in advance as possible. Usually, in quieter periods of the year (off-peak), you might only need to book a few days in advance.
Order either a small or large bunch of local proteas from Yelverton Brook and they will be delivered to your door, local Florists from Busselton, Dunsborough or Margaret River. Couriers will deliver but not usually on Saturdays.

Planning things to do

Use the retreat as a base to explore the area but don’t try and cram too much in. And don’t go off fishing or to the TAB. Find out about things to do together – something different such as a horse-riding, diving, silk painting workshop, day spa treatments in the privacy of your chalet or sailing lesson. Tag-a-long 4x4 tours, abseiling the Willy cliffs, adventure caving or lazing around together at your private chalet and make friends with the local wildlife.....
Go on a picnic together, order one from Yelverton Brook and visit Ellensbrook Historic Homestead is very nice, close to the beach and a great lawned area & run by the National Trust a small entry fee is payable, take the walktrail up to the source of the spring.


Dining in & out

An essential and enjoyable activity, and one that requires thought. A good choice here can make the weekend a truly memorable one.

Request an Arrival Platter for your first evening with champagne, flowers & chocolates, maybe consider adding satin sheets, continental breakfasts and now you have the “ Romantic Package ” for 2 for 2 nights.

A private In house chef service is offered with all the washing up done you only need to supply the wine. Another unquie idea is to add the glamour of antique china, crystalware & Italian silverware, if she falls in love with it it can even be purchased…….

When you arrive at your private spa chalet in the compendiums there is a section on “Menus” from around the region to help choose a venue you will both enjoy together. Quality food and a great atmosphere are suitable for couples. Ask the owners if they recommend one or two, ask why they like these particular places to see if they fit.

If you are confident in the recommendations received, then make a reservation for your first night. Ask the person who answers the phone where the best tables are located. Book one of the best tables and ask for the table number to make sure they write your name beside it. Outside is preferred depending on the weather. Outside heating is usually offered in winter. Inside is OK if you are near a window and there is a view.

Remember - this is for her so think subtle, low lighting and atmosphere.
Although you run the risk of not getting a table, sometimes it’s best to walk through the café and restaurant strips in the early evening and pick something that looks nice and fits what you want. No later than 6.30pm in summer, and 6.00 pm in winter.
Alot of local wineries only cater for lunch and some for Saturday evenings, ring and check ahead. Telephone numbers in the chalet compendiums under the "Menu" section.

If you see a place to dine and can’t get a table, book for your second night. If you arrive early at the town, take the opportunity to look around while out browsing the shops with your partner.

Another thing you can do is check the resort’s guest information folder for ideas. And as a final tip – don’t eat too much.

Special treats and atmosphere

Buy and/or pack the following before you leave for your destination:

  • Quality chocolates
  • Champagne glasses
  • Massage oil
  • Candles (and lighter)
  • Chocolate Fondue Set, you could go and buy the chocolate from the Margaret River Chocolate Factory!

Also, and most importantly, buy some perfume and have it gift wrapped at the counter. 50 mls will do. Some of the picks are:

Michael Kors – Michael

Armani - Georgio

Givency – Amarige

Chanel – No. 5

Dior – Addict

Bvlgari – Pour Femme

Givency - Shalimar

Always ask for free samples. These are great add-ins for your gift.

When you are at your destination, in the afternoon, buy two bottles of champagne (spend at least $20 to $25 per bottle.) Ask if they gift wrap or ask Yelverton Brook to stock some in the refridgerator ready for when you arrive....from $12 per bottle or on special request a locally produced Margaret River Sparkling Wine around $30 per bottle.

I’ll leave the rest to your imagination.


  Overall, it’s the thought that you have given everything that tells your partner you love her. And whatever you do, she’ll appreciate it for sure.
