The location is superb, very convenient to the general store & eateries (walking distance), the beach, & the house has the best views over the stunning Coles Bay! The house is absolutely amazing, tastefully decorated with everything you would want from a home away from home.

Stunning property -both the house itself, and the location. Beds were comfy and it was well set up for a group get together. The only (very) minor complaint was there was no lock on the main bathroom door.

Hi There, Thank you for your review and feedback. We are so pleased to hear you had a wonderful time in this stunning property. We try not to have locks on the bedroom doors, as we have in the past had small children accidently lock them selves inside. We do hope you loved your time in this special region and look forward to seeing you return and spoil yourselves at this beautiful property. Kind Regards Verina & The Freycinet Holiday Houses Team

This is an excellent property with great facility, wonderful views and excellent location to the scenaries, beaches. The main bathroom water outlet fell off the wall due to loose screws, and the management company sent technicians to repair within a couple of hours notificaiton. That was great. THANK YOU.

The property has been recently renovated and a large extension was built, providing an oversized family room . The furniture quality, decoration and overall feel was fantastic. The location (3 min walk from the beach) & views of the bay are gorgeous. The proximity to the park made it the perfect spot for our stay (family of 5) we cannot recommand this place enough to friends and are planning to go back next year.
