Perfect Extended Family Getaway
We spent 2 amazing nights at Collies Beach House, our second stay here as a large family group ranging from a 71 year old down to a 2 year old. The beautifully renovated property is a stones throw from the beach with a good number of bedrooms/bathrooms for a larger group. We loved the outdoor fireplace, the spacious kitchen, and SkySport kept us up to date with the AB’s game. We’d thoroughly recommend the property and look forward to our third stay soon!

5/5 Excellent

Cosy, stylish and practical
When travelling with a large group you want somewhere everyone can enjoy themselves without feeling you are stacked on top each other. This place gives you that. Even in winter you can make use of indoor and outdoor spaces!
