I booked Bella Retreat for a weekend family get-together. It was a wonderful place, perfect for young kids and with everything you would need for a self-catering break. It was close to town, beaches and wineries. Highly recommended.

Famous for international surfing competitions, Margaret River mouth is 10 mins drive away where spectacular scenery and awe inspiring waves may be viewed along this stretch of coastline.
