Turner’s new chalet open to all
Ensuring everyone is given the opportunity to escape for some rest and relaxation was the inspiration for Turner Caravan Park’s new chalet.
Three chalets were built at the popular waterfront caravan park in 2017, with positive feedback and strong bookings leading to two more, including a new fully accessible chalet, being erected in December.
Park manager Hettie Enderes said she was proud her park, owned by the Shire of Augusta-Margaret River, could provide a place for people living with a disability or mobility issues to stay.
“The Shire really wants to make sure they do the right thing and create accommodation for everyone,” she said.
“We have got a newly renovated all-access unit in one of the amenities, too. We get people in wheelchairs or with different abilities come and stay with us because they can do that here, but it is not something they can do everywhere.”
Mrs Enderes said trialling the new chalets meant she was confident the new all-access site would be a success.
“When we went about building chalets, the first three were a bit of a trial for the market and it was awesome, so when we did two more, one of them we wanted to be an all-access one,” she said.
“It is all about creating reasonable, affordable accommodation for all people to use ... I have been here 18 years with my husband, so to have that now and to see they are so successful is great.”
