“A keeper”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

This was actually our second trip at Forte Cape View apartments in Busselton. The first time was a larger accommodation which was brilliant and this time it was just a weekend adventure with a mate. Even staying in a smaller unit, there was still -plenty- of space. With the unit being self-contained, you can make your own food which, for us, more than makes up for any perceived lack of restaurant. Given that there are a number of restaurants a short drive from the accommodation, we didn't find this to be a problem in the least. There are also spots to shop for food supplies. About the only shortcoming I can see is that unlike the larger apartment we had the first time, this smaller one didn't have tupperware to store leftovers in. But it had boardgames for any rainy days :)

The beach is quite close to the apartments and the walkway which, if you are so inclined, can take you all the way to Busselton. Even if you make it only part of the way, it's a nice place to walk and explore with friendly people to say hello to you.

I suspect this place will become a favorite of mine for short vacations, given how quiet it is and the location :)

Suggestion: Check out their website for their specials. They've been good value for us so far!

We recently just stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment, at the Forte Cape in Busselton. Wow this apartment was absolutely clean and refreshing. There is a great kitchen with a microwave and dishwasher. The lounge room is very spacious with a great TV. The queensize bedroom has the most fantstic large clean shower, loo and basin. The rooms all have new inverter Air conditioners/heating.
There is a washing machine and an iron. Most of all we travelled in Nov when it is nice and quiet, before the little darlings from schools, go on holidays. Thank you to the nice guy managing the apartments that greeted us with a friendly smile and he was very organised as he had all of our forms ready for us to sign. The beach is a short walk from your room. There is a little IGA store, and fish and chip and lovely Asian food just down the road. If you want a good breakfast the Dome in Dunsborough serve a big breakfast. The thai, and the Vasse, in Busselton serve up a great dinner at a resonable price. Thanks to the owners of Apartment 70 for letting us stay. Thanks to the nice guy for his effienct service booking us in.

Room Tip: Have a lovely holiday when the kids are still at school. Some of the apartments have spas.

Quiet location a short stroll from beautiful Geographe bay. The apartment was clean and spacious with a well equipped kitchen. Although there is no restaurant on site, Busselton town centre is only a few minutes drive away where there are plenty of places to eat. We were very happy with Forte Cape View Apartments and have already booked a return trip.

We stayed here for 3 nights it was the perfect set up and location. All self contained so you can either relax at home and have dinner or travel to busselton which is close by for a restaurant meal. We will stay again and next time prehaps bring the family.

Lovely setting, only concern is there is no security on the sliding doors. The screen doors do not lock, so anyone can wander in if you are trying to let in fresh air. Can't have a window open at night for fresh air. So some security doors might be a suggestion. The ensuite is a laugh with all the glass and no privacy but some may like it that way.

We stayed here last weekend and had a lovely time. The accommodation was very comfortable and met our needs perfectly. We had 4 aduts, a toddler and an infant staying for 3 nights and the 3 bedroom townhouse was ideal. Clean, spacious and we were lucky enough to have the playground right out the back...our toddler was very impressed! The ice creams and chocolate were a great addition too! We didn't want a hotel with room service or a concierge - we wanted a 'home away from home' and that's exactly what we got.

We will definitely stay again.
