“Home away from Home”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 weeks ago

Wayne at Island View described these apartments as home away from home. Truly they were. Fully self contained very clean with a bbq out the back and a brand new washing machine we were able to enjoy the small things that you miss about home while on the road. It is very comfortable but not luxury, needs a little love in the bathrooms, see through window into toilet and shower needs updating but VERY clean! Wayne is a fantastic host.
I checked out the other accommodation in Esperance and Wayne has it all.

Room Tip: Ask for ocean front

This is a good base for small and large groups with a number of comfortable accommodation options available. The apartments are located across the road from the Esperance bay foreshore with good views and ocean and town access.
The facilities within the apartments are well maintained and very comfortable with all self catering needs catered for.
I had good memories of the apartments after staying there about 12 years ago with my family. Upon returning with just my wife earlier this year, I was again impressed and would happily stay there again. The owners are also sincere, efficient and pleasant to deal with.

The homes are right on the Esplanade, although the sea views are limited. Great location, and Wayne who manages them is great really helpful and very thoughtful when he allocated us the home. They offer free DVD rental and wifi that actually works well. The homes are stylish and comfortable, with all the facilities, including a washer and dryer. I didn't find a hairdryer. Within walking distance of a couple or restaurants. I would definitely stay here again.

We booked this accommodation with the expectation of a luxury apartment only to find a nice two storey unit! It had everything you could want, but it just needed some TLC. On the upside the beds were very comfortable and the kitchen had everything you could want. But everything just needed some love. The bathrooms were clean but also needed some money spent on them. The stairs and upstairs floors were very noisy. Another upside the owners are very very friendly and very accommodating, we needed to get in early and they cleaned our room and allowed us in a couple of hours early.

We booked a two-storey apartment (9) for 5 nights with ocean view. This apartment is located at the back and there is a partial view of the sea which you can see looking through and past the front units. I would not describe these apartments as stunning as they do not quite live up to the photos used for marketing purposes. The one bedroom units at the front of the property are fairly new and have sea front views right on the Esplanade and look very nice. Unfortunately the view from our balcony was less glamourous overlooking a vacant lot and building works at the back. Our apartment was extremely clean, well presented and comfortable. All our dealings with the manager, Wayne Halliday, were friendly, welcoming and very informative. Our linen and towels were changed after three days which showed a high attention to detail. Esperance is a hidden treasure in terms of its beautiful beaches and Cape Le Grand. The recently upgraded foreshore, historical points of interest and walking paths were very impressive.

Room Tip: If you don't mind a smaller space, the single bedroom units have sea-front views and a little mo...

We were only able to get a couple of nights here on our three night stay in Esperance, but we are so glad we did. It suited us down to the ground, somewhere lovely to sit during the evening and a lovely comfy bed to sleep in at night. Everything was tastefully done and the reception we received was very welcoming and lovely. Its a lovely walk to the jetty from there at night, the whole foreshore is just so picturesque and beautiful. We don't have young children anymore, but can really appreciate the fantastic job that has been done along the foreshore to make it a great place for kids as well. Our unit was only for two people but I'm sure families can stay there as well and would have a great time. If we are ever back in Esperance we will make sure we can stay here for the whole time. Thank you for the hospitality.

A few months ago I booked one of apartments for family members. Already at that time I was deeply impressed by the owner of Esperance Island View Apartments. There are few privately managed placed that have displayed this level of professionalism and I was looking forward to hear feedback from my relatives. Well, the reviews I received today were outstanding - it must be a most amazing place to stay, apparently very clean and modern, beautifully appointed and Wayne Halliday's caring and positive personality certainly must have added to the experience. I regret not being able to stay myself and will have to make sure that I add it to my list of favourite places to stay and visit. Thank you Wayne!
