Our group of 13 recently stayed in house # 7. Location was great - close to beach and shops. The house was clean and tidy but have to say the mattresses and pillows could do with replacing as they were rather uncomfortable.

Thanks for your review Lisa. House 7 is a great house to fit large groups with 2 or 3 families like yours in. As such, the single beds and bunks are more suitable for children. Replacement and renewal of household items is an ongoing process. We thank you for your input and advice and will look at improvements to make... More

I visited my sister and her family who were staying here and was very impressed with the layout and facilities. Great place for the kids to mix with other kids, ride bikes, go to the beach or just hang out. All the advantages of an old fashioned caravan park or suburban street while staying in a spacious house! Would definitely... More

We stayed in House 15 which was perfect for several generations of family to stay in. The house is clean,comfortable and well furnished. The spa bath with Turkish influence was a real crowd pleaser (we didn't use it- just admired it!) The coffee machine DID get a workout, so nice to be able to have a real coffee in the... More

excellently presented property with great facilities. Every storage and baking item stocked in the kitchen cupboards to make staying very homely. beds could do with an upgrade as some didn't zip together and had a little lean to them! fabulous location.. pool was awesome!

12 of us from 3 families stayed for 3 nights in House 15. It is nice and clean and well equipped. We cooked for 2 nights and used the bbq on the last night. The management office is efficient, we called about a bathroom light blown one night and someone came within 10 min. Only regret was that it was... More

We are so glad that you all enjoyed your stay in House 15. Although the Dunsborough beaches are beautiful through summer, it is just as nice to visit during the cooler months. And there are always plenty of activities close by. Congratulations to your son for catching the fish - I hope it was delicious! More

Recently stayed at Halycon Bay in Dunsborough. The house was stunning, spacious but cosy at the same time. the caretakers were fantastic. Lots of wood for the fire, a lovely pot of home made marmalade which was such a lovely touch. We had no electricity at one stage due to the storms and the caretaker came to check and see... More

Our favourite place to stay in Dunsborough! The accommodation is always spotless and very comfortable. Love the fact that it is so close to the ocean and short walk to shops, cafes etc. The only thing I could say against it would be that some of the houses don't have a fence between them so not a lot of privacy...

What a beautiful property! Halcyon Bay does the little things brilliantly, with not just the insides of the house, but surroundings immaculately presented. We have been regular guests at Dunsborough Beach Cottages over the past few years, but (while that is great), Halcyon Bay is a definite step up in quality and well worth the price difference. 7 Adults and...

We stayed at #19 over Easter with our family. While Halcyon Bay is great for families with small children, near the beach, very safe etc it is noisy for adults wanting a quiet getaway. Our house was next to the park where children played and dogs ran around barking and there was an Easter Egg hunt in the bushes right... More

We are sorry that you didn't enjoy your stay at Halcyon Bay over the Easter long weekend. After you reported the possum we inspected the insulated ceiling where there was no sign of possums within the roof space. Unfortunately possums on the roof are common in this area.
