We were in search of a cheap motel in Melbourne for one night whilst stopping over on our travel down the coast - we wanted somewhere on or near the beach so that we didnt have much of a detour.
After searching a while i stumbled across Sea Scape.. with brilliant reviews and SO cheap we decided to gamble and book - viewing it as just a stopover night.
How wrong we were! we checked in after a long day on the beach, sandy and tired and hungry. At the desk we were greeted by two very friendly ladies who informed us it was our lucky day and we had been upgraded to the ocean suite room!
We were shown round to the back by the ocean, the double doors opened and the suite was HUGE! So lovely and comfy, huge bed in which you could hear and see the sea! a big full kitchen, living area, table and chairs, another sofa with tv, seperate bathroom. Fresh towels, hairdryer etc were also supplied.
Loved our stay, we wish we had been staying for longer but unfortunately had other accomodation and a long drive ahead of us the next evening. We made our most of our stay and left the room at midnight for a stroll along the beach as was told it was turtle nesting season. Our luck must have been in because a short stroll along and just as our eyes were adjusting we spotted a turtle.. laying her eggs! :) such a magical thing to see!
We finally made our way back to the room, slept with the doors open, the sound of the waves and in the morning were able to use the shower and kitchen facilities, both great. Sat on the table and chairs provided outside right next to the beach and had breakfast.
A perfect stay and next time we will book in for a lot longer!
tip: take along some bits for breakfast and store them in the kitchen, enjoy the view in the morning with a coffee and some food - beats any restaurant!
