About the property

We specialize in holiday rentals that are perfect for large groups

Koolinda by the Bay, Broome, is a home big enough to accommodate all your extended family or a group of friends. The great thing about staying at Koolinda is you can share the fun and split the costs for a great value holiday. With plenty of room for family and friends, you can invite everyone from grandchildren to grandparents, with enough space to socialise and dine together.

This stylishly appointed, eminent abode sleeps up to 16 people and is the perfect choice for families and friends looking to reunite and rejuvenate. Fully air-conditioned, with four bedrooms, three bathrooms and an impressive upstairs kitchen that looks down upon the lap pool, a large family or group can enjoy spacious self sufficiency.

Set amongst tropical gardens, 'Koolinda' boasts four spacious indoor living areas ( the top north west facing living room can double as a meeting room or office if you are visiting Broome on business), a dining room and numerous outdoor living spaces including a barbeque/entertaining deck and an observation deck - perfect for Kimberley star gazing, or for enjoying early morning sunrises.

The use of vibrant and earthy colours throughout the residence creates visual pleasure, and reflects the meeting of two natural worlds - the outback and the ocean.

The Story of Koolinda

'Koolinda' is named after a famous motor vessel, SS Koolinda. Built for coastal trade with all the modern ship trimmings of the day, she led a charmed life and was recognised as the queen of motor vessels during the 1930s halcyon years of State Shipping. She was considered a vital lifeline between Fremantle and Darwin.

able Beach knows what families want. Tropical gardens, a waterfall and spa frame a dedicated lagoon-style Family Pool, set amid an area with water playground, activity centre and mini-golf. If that weren’t enough, there’s also a bright and cheerful playground, tennis courts, games and nonstop activities.

A wonderful extended family holiday!! Thank you.

  • 5 of 5

Everything was wonderful, from the cold drinks and food in the fridge on arrival - and the pool toys blown up and ready to us to all the amazing space and wonderful furnishing. There was 9 of us over 3 generations and we did not get close to using all the space available. From our first contact, Donna and her team were extremely helpful! We will definitely be back.

Out of this world!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay couldn't have been any better. We never felt on top of each other or crammed. Beds were comfortable, furniture was of a high standard. There was ample crockery & cutlery as well as bowls etc. if need be. The outdoor area near the swimming pool was an excellent area for all of us to spend time with each other, but having so many lounges it was easy to move away if you felt you needed time alone. Probably the only negative was the swimming pool was very fresh. The pool man fixed the heating whilst we were there but it appeared to only last one day & then it was cold again. This was a very small issue though as the standard of the place was so high. Was thrilled with the effort put in by Jules & the cleaners to allow us to get into the place as quickly as they did & the house was in a beautiful state when we arrived. Wonderful & well worth the money. Thank Koolinda, I hope to return one day :)

Glam location, fabulous house

  • 5 of 5

Really, really excellent. Koolinda just swallows people, it's so big and airy. We had 9 adults and a 6 year old and there was so much room we lost each other in it. Beautifully furnished, super clean, and close to everything in town, with terrific views over Roebuck Bay.

Our stay at Koolinda was fantastic, for us it was close, convenient and central to family and town, the view was beautiful. Most of all the personal touches were much appreciated such as the food platter, drink and floral arrangement on arrival.
