“Clean and comfortable”
Reviewed June 11, 2014

First time staying here, very clean and comfortable apartments with everything we needed and great value. Great location by the beach and very close to restaurants. Car parking a bit tight but that is a very minor criticism.

We returned for our annual visit to Adelaide for June Log Weekend - and each year our party increases and we introduce new friends to this amazing venue. We had two apartments this year - The Beach House and The Boat House - and 3 and 4 bedroom apartment respectively which comes with a double deck where we BBQ'd in the winter sun and witnessed amazing sunsets over Glenelg Beach on our doorstep. These apartments are spacious, are beautifully appointed with all one needs to have a great visit. Walking distance to Jetty Road Shops, Holdfast Shores with all the restuarants, The Surf Club - terrific meals and again great view and picturesque walks along the beach whether you head to Glenelg North or South to Brighton. The staff are amazing and once again or thanks to Alan, Rachael, Jayne and Sophie...so looking forward to returning in 2015.

Always an absolute pleasure to have you here Katiegal! Did we decide this was the 7th year in a row?!!
The Beach House and Boat House were just perfect for your ever-expanding party - what a wonderful spot for a few fortifying glasses of Barossa red in the winter sun!
See you again next year if not before,
All the best,

We found Seawall Apartments to be accommodating in every way.

Rachael worked with me to find a good solution in terms of which apartment would suit our needs...both before and after I had to change our travel plans.

The Olive Mews, itself, provided more space for my daughter and I to spread out than we would have had in, say, a twin bed hotel room. This meant that I could watch tv in the sitting room while my daughter read in her bedroom.

The accommodation, moreover, was spotless. It provided everything we needed (scissors, a variety of knives, pots and pans, microwave, stove top, full size fridge, etc.) to prepare meals and make coffee, as well as a generous supply of pillows and towels.

On both nights that we stayed, during the Queen's Birthday Long Weekend, we were able to park right in front of our accommodation without any dramas.

All in all, I'd be more than happy to stay at the Seawall Apartments again.

Thanks Donna B for your lovely review.
I am so glad that we were able to be flexible and find the perfect room for you and your daughter. It is nice to have space to spread out and relax - it sounds like The Mews was ideal for you.
Thanks also for mentioning our easy parking - free parking is pretty rare these days and we are happy to be able to provide it for your guests.
I will pass on your kind words about the high standard of cleanliness to our House keeping - they will be thrilled with the positive feedback.
Hope to see you next time you are in Adelaide,
Kind regards,

Give Adelaide City apartments a miss. If you are looking at a self-contained apartment (with cooking and laundry facilities), beautiful sea view, easy walking distance to eating places and supermarkets (coles & woolsworth) that open till late, this shall be the choice.
I stayed in a 2 rooms apartment, huge enough for my 3 kids, with a spa in the apartment which the kids really love. Very clean rooms, there are even DVDs and a chess set to keep the kids occupied!
I nearly gave Glenelg a miss but am glad I didn't. I recommend this as a base for you to explore Adelaide, the hills and Victor Harbour is just about an hr's drive away. And really, when everything closes at 4pm, you will have more than enough time to drive back before it turns dark.

Room Tip: I stayed at Apartment 8 which did not have a view, do choose a room with a view, I believe it would...

Dear Anna_WPY, Thanks for your wonderful review, we really appreciate the feedback.
It always amazes me how different we all are - Apartment 8 is our smallest 2 bedroom, but you felt it was huge for your family of 4 - great news!
I do love the polished floor boards and light and airy feel of the room though and I am glad to hear that you did too.
We are so lucky to be in such a wonderful location and I have to agree with you - why stay in the City when you can be sea aide and just a quick 20 minute car or Tram ride away from the CBD?
We hope to see you again next time,
Kind regards,
Rachael

Great location, close to Glenelg. Nice enough but slightly old and shabby for the money we paid... we got the unit around the back in the carpark. Maybe some of the other units are a bit more impressive? From the photos, I was expecting to be wowed, so to be honest, was a bit disappointed.

Thanks also for the compliments on our location -we are so very lucky to be in such a wonderful spot right on Glenelg beach, so close to the shopping and dining precinct on Jetty Road and the Holdfast Marina.

We had a lovely stay at the Seawall Apartments. This was our first family holiday in 6 years and the spaciousness of the Boathouse suited us very much. Parking late at night was a bit tricky but not really a problem with a little spousal guidance! The apartments are beautifully appointed, well equipped and generally quiet although our neighbours on the first night were a bit noisy but thankfully quiet ended down eventually. All in all we had a great time and would return again!

We chose to stay out of the CBD for our 9 day break and we were not disappointed with our choice of accommodation. Seawall Apartments are relaxing units in a mix of older style buildings. Each unit is different and we chose the Chapel. We were warm, comfortable and only had to ask once for anything we needed. Morning walks along the seafront were lovely and the tram ride to the city is easy. We would happily chose Seawall again if we are ever lucky enough to return to Adelaide.

Room Tip: All units are different. The website is great for helping make the right choice.
