About Ian & Lauris Grose
We built this lovely house for our retirement but for family reasons that was not possible. The family and our friends used the house for holidays for years, but In 2004 we decided to rent the house for holiday accommodation and have many return visitors who just can't wait to come back.
Ian & Lauris Grose purchased this Cottage in 1984
Why Ian & Lauris Grose chose Ocean Beach
We discovered the Great Southern district many years ago and our family always thought of Denmark as the gem of the district. The charming little town set on the gentle, scenic Denmark river, the combination of karri forest, the wildness of the Southern ocean and the craggy cliffs along the shoreline just captured our hearts, We can't stay away.
What makes this Cottage unique
We built The Coombe on an acre of land, heavily treed with karri and redgums on the edge of Wilson Inlet. The combination of all these elements made it ideal to create a home that sits so well into its environment. Turning into the winding driveway you immediately see the water through the trees, and walking through the front door into the house is a revelation with stunning views all around through the walls of glass. How could you not love it

Nice out of the way with bush surrounds and bird life and homely feel. If in the area again would stay there again or let my friend know about it . Thanks for a nice stay.

Amazing retreat in nature
The house was wonderful. It overlooks the inlet and is just a short walk down through the trees to get to the water's edge (no beach or anything, but a short jetty you can walk out on and sit and watch the water birds).
We were 2 couples, and the layout of the house is good in this respect as the rooms are on either side of the main living area, so a bit of privacy - although note that one of the bedrooms doesn't have any doors! This isn't too much of a problem as it is quite removed from the other bedroom and set out so that you can't see into it from the living area - but still worth noting!
We really enjoyed sitting on the verandah in the mornings and evenings and looking at all the wildlife passing by. There are amazing beaches close by (especially Greens Pools and Ocean Beach), as well as being only a few hundred m walk to a section of the Bibbulmun Track. Overall a wonderful, peaceful place to stay, whether you want to hang around at the house or get out and explore.
I want to thank you for taking the time and trouble to review "The Coombe" in Denmark, and tell you how pleased we are that you enjoyed your stay. I hope you had such a relaxing time that you are better able to cope with the realities of life after the holiday is over.
You will be very welcome to return if that is ever possible, and will have besides a wonderful bottle of wine a box of yummy chocolates.
Every best wish for the rest of the year,
Great place for peace and quiet.

Best wishes, Lauris Grose
Nestled amongst the trees, this place has a wonderful setting and views of the inlet. We only had a weekend but Lauris gave us the perfect itinerary recommendations.
We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay at "The Coombe" even though it was so brief and thank you for your lovely review. I hope there will be a time when you can return for a longer holiday and there will be a bottle of excellent local wine waiting for you on arrival, Harewood Estate, plus a box of chocolates.
Every best wish,
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Coombe. It is a very comfortable and well appointed home. We appreciated the electric blankets being July! We were in Denmark only 2 days to spend time with family and only used the house overnight so we can't comment on the kitchen, TV and BBQ etc which we didn't use. The beds were very comfortable and the bathrooms had good a supply of hot water. The bed linen and towels were excellent quality.
One bedroom does not have a door and we would recommend that best sleepers use that room to avoid being disturbed.
Overall we were very happy with the home and would happily stay again, especially in summer!
I do hope you will be able to holiday at "The Coombe" in the summer, it is just lovely at that time of the year. It is never as hot as in Perth, and while the sun floods through the house in winter it does not in summer, so it is kept cool. Sitting on the covered verandah watching the birds with the lovely view all round is really something in summertime, and Ocean Beach is only a few minutes drive away. You are very welcome to return and there will be a bottle of excellent local wine, Harewood Estate, and yummy chocolates waiting for you on arrival
Every best wish, Lauris Grose.
Wonderful view over the inlet with colourful birdlife. Very comfortable and well appointed. Great deck to have brekky on and take in surrounds. Well placed between Ocean Beach and the town. We always love coming to Denmark!
