“Hidden gem, just an hour from Perth.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

What a find! These spotlessly-clean, well-located chalets are an absolute delight. We didn't move the car for our entire stay, as they are within walking distance of restaurants, bars, shops, the water front, canal cruises and a lovely little beach.

The service as we checked in was amazingly friendly, with the owners welcoming us and pointing us in the direction of local facilities. They really have thought of everything to make your stay that extra bit nicer, from including a welcome pack of tea, coffee and milk, to a laundry basket in the chalet and a generous amount of toiletries in the bathroom.

The facilities in the chalets are excellent, with large fridge, microwave and hot plate. The bathroom is a decent size, and the air conditioning and fans were very welcome in the heat. There is a little verandah which is the perfect size to sit and watch the world go by. The spa was fantastic, a real find in accommodation in this price bracket.

There are barbeque facilities and a sink (with Department of FIsheries size guide included!) to clean your ocean haul, which would be great if you were a fisher, but did remind me rather sadly that I have never been able to catch a fish in my life. The gardens are beautifully maintained. All traffic is one-way through the park and speed-limited, so it feels very relaxed and safe. The compendium of information makes it quite clear that the park is a family-oriented destination, and although we stayed as a couple and found it very suitable for our needs, I can see that families would be very well catered for. There is a laundry which is open during reception opening hours, which would be good for longer stays.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in this lovely property.

We being a family of 4 with 2 young children enjoyed our 2 night stay over a great mid week getaway. Having not stayed in Mandurah for many years we were given our stay as a gift, on arrival wewere impressed with the location, a 5min walk to the boardwalk, a great public park at the end of the accommodation, a protected swimming beach and nestled among the beautiful canals and luxurious apartments and boats. 10min walk to town centre, the beautiful town back beach and more. We fished, dolphin watched, swam, walked the many signposted walkways, indulged in gormet icecream, ate fish and chips on the boardwalk and so much more.
I'm not sure of the age of the villas but they present as new and have everything you need, we had a 2 bed and everything was perfect, I can't think of anything that was not so. The lush garden setting only further added to the over all appeal. Would we stay again, definitely.

Stayed at these chalets for two nights while on our WA holiday. We were greeted by warm and friendly staff. The chalets were neat and well stocked and the spa was the perfect size for both of us to lazy back and relax. It's so central to restaurants, the beach and the CBD is only a short stroll away. We will be back again to stay here as its the most delightful spot, extremely doable.

I would have no regrets booking again.
Quiet....relaxing....clean ...easy access to everything.....not too expensive....nice surroundings.....lovely staff.........what more can you ask for.

We had a lovely relaxing break in this small complex. We took the train from Perth and the connecting bus from the station. This dropped us pretty close to the chalets and it was great not to have to worry about driving for a few days. The grounds are well maintained, the chalet itself was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The kitchen is excellent if you wish to cook and the microwave handy if you need to reheat a takeaway. Dolphin Quay is vey close and has shops and eateries. The main centre of Mandurah is no distance either and there are so many options there for food - supermarket - cafes - restaurants. There are lots of possible activities around town, and many places to take drives to if you do bring a car but your chalet, with spa bath, is a delight to come "home" to.

Stayed here for a good 3 nights last July. Clean (its really clean), green, complete facilities with kitchenette area, outdoor BBQ pit, picnic tables and even car parking nearby the compound. I would see this place as an ideal family spot for holiday since there are LOTS of to-do activities from dolphin watching, swimming, community arts centre, restaurants and many more within walking distance. Good location, good price, good facilities...just great :) Wish the wifi is at affordable price though.
