“A luxurious retreat”
Reviewed July 22, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This property was an absolute find for a very relaxing night away.
Travelling with friends for a family function we used both studios. The decor was very modern and beautifully finished. The crockery and glassware all a very good quality. The breakfast hamper was quite substantial with very fresh ingredients . Our only disappointment was we couldn't stay longer.

Our two night stay was intended simply to provide comfortable and convenient accommodation for a nearby business meeting on the Peninsula. We really wished we could have stayed longer.
The studio was comfortable, spacious, spotlessly clean, beautifully appointed throughout and very thoughtfully provisioned. The studios sit in a pleasantly shaded, wooded area.
Although the immediate surroundings of the property are a little dull, the peaceful Balnarring and Merricks beaches and amenities are nearby and if you feel like eating out, Le Bouchon in Balnarring is well worth a visit for dinner.

“Perfection”

My husband and I stayed in studio 1 for four nights. We are so glad we chose to stay here! The owners have thoughtfully included everything needed for a comfortable, luxurious stay. We immediately felt at home. There is a deck with chairs which was great for reading a book on a mild day. The bed was so incredibly comfortable and it overlooks a lovely garden.

The bathroom was gorgeous, clean and I love the use of full size hand wash, shampoos etc rather than little one use sachets/ bottles. It made me feel like I was staying at a very thoughtful and hospitable friend's guest room. There's no door to the bathroom which might be a deal breaker for some couples/ families, though you can angle the wardrobe doors to help screen the entrance, if you needed to. Otherwise you could see the toilet from the bed. However everything else was so good The shower is awesome!!

The studio is very private, adjacent to another larger studio apartment. I guess you could probably hear each other in the kitchen area, but we didn't find noise an issue. I loved the kitchen - clean, easy to find everything and so well stocked. It included a capsule type coffee machine with plenty of choice in strengths. There was also plenty of tea and other beverages. No little tubs of UHT milk here- rather a good sized glass bottle was waiting in the fridge. A loaf of bread was another thoughtful provision.The dishwasher was great.

In an attached room there is a laundry with washing machine and dryer which was handy after a day out swimming. I think it is shared with the other studio, but i didn't bump into anyone there.

We met Marianne a couple of times as we left for outings, she was lovely and recommended a market down the road which turned out to be awesome.

I was desperately in need of down time and to be away from people, so the privacy and quiet Coolart studios offered was much appreciated. I really wished I'd booked for longer. This is on the list of places I hope to stay at again in the future. Highly recommended! Thanks Marianne and Mike!

The Coolart Studios provided a luxurious haven for our easter escape. Both studios were beautifully decorated and equipped with everything we needed for our family easter lunch. It was easy to relax with plenty of space to spread out. We made the most of the comfy couches, chaise lounge, day bed and giant bath in studio two. We were impressed by all the little details that the owners, Marianne and Mike, have thought of. We will definitely be back.
