Relaxing family break
Our family thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night break in this amazing house. The house was very modern, clean, warm and very comfortable. The location is wonderful, with views across to the Hazards and only a short walk down to Richardsons beach and to the local shops. All communication was very prompt and clear. We are looking forward to staying again when we next visit Coles Bay.
