“Fantastic mini resort”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2011

Made our first visit to Broome a very memorable experience. Our 6 nights just flew by in this beautiful mini resort. Enjoyed the great breakfast and the perfectly cooked eggs every morning and the company of 2 other couples sharing our stories. The bungalow was very nicely decorated, and so the huge bathroom. Free WiFi connection is a pleasant bonus. Great location between town and Cable Beach, which is only a few minutes away by car. Last but not least Brad was a fantastic host. Highly recommended.

Thank you for your enthusiastic review. It is gratifying to read that our guests see our place as a "mini resort". We work hard, from the design of the property to the daily service to create an atmosphere that is as enjoyable as a resort. Of course anyone can stay at a resort, but few get the chance to stay at a mini resort. Why? Because we only have three rooms!

Thank you again for taking your valuable time to tell others about your find.

Regards,
Brad

It looked good on line but the reality was superb. A fantastic little oasis in the best place in Aus to escape the cold Adelaide winter. Just a short walk to some great places to eat and drink and not much further to the beautiful Cable Beach. Brad looked after us well, preparing an excellent breakfast each day which was more than enough to satisfy us until dinner. Great to meet and chat to new people at the breakfast table where we shared our stories of the previous day and plans for the next. Brad booked us a trip on the hovercraft which gave us the chance to literally stand in the footsteps of dinosaurs! All in all it was a superb holiday at a great place, definitely going back!!

Service was great, very personal, you couldn't ask for more. We were greeted by the owners and made to feel extremely welcome. The accomodation is perfect for couples. Very private fully airconditioned along with ceiling fans.Beautiful use of native timbers through out with a huge bathroom, we had our own deck and BBQ facilities. Private pool with deckchairs. Restaurants only few minutes walk towards Cable Beach. Airport only 10 minutes away by car. We suprised to find home cooked breakfasts were included in room costs. One of the stand outs to our stay was the personl service which you don't always get from larger resorts.

Room Tip: Either of the rooms beside the pool would be more private.

Great B&B, clean room and bathroom, lovely breakfast and great pool. Rooms are separate bungalow style with own bathroom facilities (a huge plus).
About 1km from Cable Beach...bit further to Broome town and Chinatown.

Room Tip: Liked the back rooms near the pool, front room is near the driveway and main house but still nice.

We love the relaxing atmosphere of Broome and have previously stayed at a large resort but staying at this small personalised B&B gave us the opportunity to meet fellow travelers from not only all states of Australia but from overseas as well. Brad's friendly nature made us feel welcome and he looked after us very well cooking a scrumptious breakfast every morning and maintaining our room and the resort perfectly. We had a wonderfully relaxing time and hope to be able to do it again before too long.

Room Tip: We had a room near the pool which was quiet, private and convenient.

Wow what a great review. I hope that this is a standard we can bare. Actually it is easy because we enjoy the visitors. Meeting new people is always good, but meeting new people who are on vacation is better! They are always happy. They should be, they are on vacation!

I have to note here that there have been a few tips for people to be situated on either side of the pool. We cannot guarantee any particular room as we need to run at full capacity (all three rooms) when we can. This said, I have had special requests for all three rooms. I believe all three rooms are equal with slight differences (like one room is two steps further from the pool than the other two).

Excellent facilities, quiet location, superb breakfasts.
Barefoot provided bikes gratis so we did not need to have a vehicle to see the whole of Broome during our stay. It was great to come back for a swim after riding each day.
The rooms are spacious, modern and beautifully appointed.
This was a Cable Beach stay at very economical rates. We recommend this B&B highly.

My partner and I stayed for 2 nights and found the accommodation at barefoot bungalows very clean, stylish, laid back and homely. The rooms were very spacious and the breakfast was delicious! The owner suggested and booked us some great activities whilst we were there which we really enjoyed. Highly recommend it!
