Owner's Response: Hi Liz - Thanks for choosing Sea Horse Diamond Beach to stay at and to show your Welsh friends how lovely the mid north coast of NSW is. It was great to meet you all when you arrived - I know it had been a very long plane trip out from the UK for your Welsh friends and it was good to see that they made good use of our new pool to unwind during your stay :) . The girls were our first Welsh guests too! See you next time.
