Helen, (August 2016)
Six of us stayed at Koolinda Bay from 11th to 18th Aug. What a fantastic home to stay in. As my husband said “The only thing missing is a Butler:. This house is ideal for four couples or a couple of families. The house has everything you only need to take in your own personal items and food and drink. There is plenty of space for lounging around outdoors as there are many separate outdoor areas. The same goes for family areas. I would have no hesitation in going back to Koolinda again.

We had the most wonderful holiday in Broome and the house was the cream on top! Somehow it was even bigger than it appears in the photos, but we were still able to have a relaxed and enjoyable time together. Our five (adult) children had the space to do their own thing while my husband, mum and I relaxed and unwound and then we all came together in the kitchen, or by the pool or on the top deck to share lovely family times! Donna and Karl had put many special touches into the house, from special soaps in the bathrooms to great board games in the family room and they even left a bottle of champagne as a gift for my mum, whose 80th birthday was the reason we were there. It was an absolute delight to stay in this house and it helped make it the best family holiday we have ever had! I would highly recommend it to everyone.

Our extended family spent a glorious week luxuriating at Koolinda by the Bay in Broome. It offers superb privacy, but with the advantage of being close to all amenities. With spacious dining and living areas this accommodation is ideal for a family group or friends. The bedrooms are conveniently planned so one does not feel ‘crowded’. There is plenty of room for entertaining but also gives a choice of nooks and cosy corners where one can curl up with a book and enjoy quiet time.
The lap pool is sublime and sizeable which allows adults and children to comfortably share and have fun, with the bonus of having the spectacular view of Roebuck Bay at the doorstep.
Can’t wait to return!

We very much enjoyed our stay at Koolinda by the Bay in September. We have been Broome locals for 6 years and when friends from Melbourne made plans to come over for our wedding, we couldn’t resist booking Koolinda by the Bay and staying there with them.
Both Donna and Georgia made the booking process easy and made us feel very welcome on arrival.
The house was perfect for both our families, with plenty of room and privacy for each of us, but also with great living/dinning spaces where we could all come together for meals and entertaining.
As we had told Donna that there were small children in the house, when we arrived the child gates were put up at the top of the stairs and there were plenty of highchairs and playpens and toys for us to use.
We used the house to get ready for our wedding, which was beautiful. With plenty of space and the amazing views it made our morning pleasant and relaxing.
I would have no hesitation in recommending anyone to stay at Koolinda by the Bay. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, as did our guests from Melbourne.

An invitation to attend a friend’s destination wedding in Broome was the perfect excuse for an extended stay in what we all believe to be paradise. Our group included three couples and a family and choosing to stay at Koolinda by the Bay in Broome was an easy decision for all of us. After each couple had originally explored individual hotel options we found that the most affordable way to have a five star stay in Broome was to book Koolinda as a larger group.
Booking the accommodation was a simple process and Donna was fantastic to deal with. When checking in we were greeted by Georgia who was just as lovely and made herself available to us throughout our stay should we have any queries, questions or concerns about the house.
The house itself boasts enough space and privacy that during our 9 night stay we never felt like we were living on top of each other, the modern furnishings throughout, obvious high standards of cleanliness and neat presentation contributed positively to the 5 star experience we all shared.
The views were breath-taking from each of the three outdoor levels and all bar one bedroom had lovely water front views. Upon visiting the house and seeing the views the bride seriously considered getting ready at the property as it was the perfect environment, both inside and outside for outstanding photos (the 13 extra people she would have to bring as part of her morning preparation was the only reason she decided to opt out as she didn’t want those of us who were staying there to be stressed out – but with that said, it could have easily worked)!!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this as an accommodation option for any group, of any ages, looking for a self contained, 5 star experience in beautiful Broome town!
