I will have to say the sea view was lovely and I loved the sound of the surf breaking on the shore! We arrived and somehow I misunderstood what 3br unit we were booked in. I thought it had 2 full bathrooms based on description of a spa bath, but only 1 full Bathroom with shower and toilet in same... More

Dear CLJ55, Thank you for your feedback on your recent stay. Thanks for being so gracious about moving from apartment to apartment - I think we got there in the end! As you have noted we have many (22 in fact) completely different apartments and each has their own personality and facilities. We highly recommend that guests with particular needs... More

I found Seawall Apartments using Tripadvisor. As we had never been to Adelaide before, I just picked the top seaside apartments near our relatives. Seawall has definitely earned its position! We stayed in the Quarterdeck, a spacious two bedroom apartment with great oceanfront views from oversized windows, private deck, huge living room, updated bathroom with deep, jetted tub, . Even...

It was our first stay at Seawall Apartments. It was a very good experience to stay there. The owners Allan and Rachel are nice people and helpful. The property located at beach front with nice and quiet surrounding. The apartment is well equipped and in good reasonable size for our family of three with two separate rooms. The wifi service...

We spent 5 nights in "The Boat House". It was perfect, what a great location. Staff were brilliant and so helpful. We were shocked at some comments left on trip advisor by people that should just learn to enjoy their holiday instead of picking the eyes out of every business that they come in contact with. Any where you stay... More

in the best position, no noisy traffic but so close to cafes, shops & transport not to mention 1 minute or less and you're on the esplanade ready for a refreshing walk or swim.

When we booked the apartment, had no idea it would be as well appointed as it was. Two bedrooms and baths, large sitting area and well equipped kitchen were more than what we needed. Friendly service, close to many great restaurants and the beach. Can't really ask for more, except wifi that actually worked in our room.
