I stayed in Observation Rise for 3 nights with colleagues while on a business trip to Perth. The standard of accommodataion is superb, with expensively furnished apartments of a very high standard. It was also a real pleasure to have a fully-equipped kitchen where everything seemed to be at one's finger tips, and our apartment was a much better choice than hotel style accommodation. Only negative on the room was the surprising lack of cable television.
As good as the apartment was, the real highlight was the view. 180 degrees of beachfront and ocean, with a spacious balcony to sit back with a glass of wine to take in the sunset. The main bedroom opened right up over the waves, with the only noise in the evening the sound of the surf.
Restaurants and cafes are within walking distance, and facilities seemed good, though it was too cold for swimming in the rather impressive looking pool. For the sports-inclined, the tennis courts looked in good condition and seemed to have good availability.
Rooms were not serviced and I saw no sign of staff throughout the entire stay.
On the whole, a really good option and a location that I would seriously consider for a family holiday in the future.
