About Donna McColl

Both Cam and I own our own business (a children's fitness program) that runs across Australia, we appreciate the importance of quality service and good communication.

Cam and our son are mad keen surfers and love more than anything, to head to the Southwest on a surf trip, although they still both manage to find a few waves each day here in Perth when they have to. I own a little quarter horse and find my sanctuary when I spend time with him each week and our daughter is a cheerleader, say no more! So as you can imagine we lead very busy and active lives.

We have had a few family holidays in our Happy Feet Beach Retreat our home away from home (although certainly not as many as we would like).

Donna McColl purchased this house in 2015

Why Donna McColl chose Dunsborough

This is a lovely property in an AMAZING location!!!

No need to get in your car again once you are there, the beautiful Dunsborough beach is a minutes walk away, the town centre with boutique shopping, cafe's, restaurants and supermarkets is also only a minutes walk. There is a park at the end of the street for the children to play in and dogs to run around (we are a pet friendly home).

The Happy Feet Beach Retreat is an old style house with all the modern trimmings you need to make your stay a comfortable.

What makes this house unique

LOCATION - it would be hard to beat!

Great spot!

  • 5 of 5

Very happy we decided to stay here. We were a group of 3 couples and one Bernese Mountain Dog so we needed a bit of space and the set up was good with two main bedrooms downstair and another upstairs in the loft. What we liked most was the location... literally just a few steps to the town centre and the beach which was great for us with the dog. If you like the idea of an early morning walk to grab a coffee followed by a stroll along the beach then this is the place you need to stay. I would definitely stay here again.

We recently visited Happy Feet for a weekend get away. The house had everything you would need for a holiday home beautifully decorated. Very close to the town and the Beach. Local craft markets near by & beautiful shops. We will be back again soon.

Perfect location, Pet friendly

Dunsborough is surrounded by a stunning coastline, scenic walks, world class surfing spots, caves and some of Australia's best wineries and brewery's. They are ample of events throughout the year but if you don't fancy the bigger events then just head 10 minutes away to Meelup beach where the water is stunning and the beach is rarely crowded or you could head to the famous surf beach - Yallingyup. If the kids need some entertainment then try the Maze that is also located in Yallingyup 5 minutes drive away. The kids might like to try the trampoline park just 2 minutes up the road. There are plenty of boutique shops in town which is walking distance surrounded by gourmet cafe's, restaurants and bars.

Dunsborough certainly has something for everyone!
