Seashells Mandurah

Seashells Mandurah is a stunning 4.5 star beachside apartment retreat. It was our luxury base for our “Anytime Adventures” in the Peel region. Perfectly placed by the ocean, Seashells is seconds from the markets and cafes of Dolphin Quay and within walking distance of many of Mandurah’s main attractions.

Other than passing through Mandurah on the way to Margs (in the days before the Forrest Highway), I’d never stopped in Mandurah long enough to really explore what it offers. So we were very excited to spend a long weekend enjoying a staycation at Seashells Mandurah.

Staycations are becoming more and more popular with our busier lifestyles, tighter budgets and the realisation that WA has so much to offer locals. With a travel time of just over one hour from our home near Joondalup, we were barely in the car long enough for Little Chef to ask “Are we there yet?”, before we arrived in sunny Mandurah.

The friendly Seashells receptionist quickly checked us in and handed us our room keys. As we headed up to the third floor, Little Chef practically ran down the hallway with his luggage he was so excited – and I wasn’t too far behind him!

As we stepped into room 307 – a two bedroom Ocean View Apartment, we were greeted by the spacious, modern kitchen and beyond that a magnificent view over the ocean.

The spacious living area has a comfy lounge which overlooks the wrap around balcony.

When you’re not gazing over the sea, the TV has some Foxtel channels as well as free to air. Chef wasted no time to kick off his shoes, relax on the sofa and check out the footy score.

There’s also dining table for four and a desk. I really love the décor, it’s very beach chic and all the rooms have very vibrant artworks too.

The kitchen has everything you’d need to cook up a feast, with an oven, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, huge island bench, appliences, utencits, crockery, glassware and more. We were definitely having the weekend off cooking, but it was handy to have the kitchen for putting together our breakfasts. It would be perfect for longer stays.

There’s even a laundry hiding away behind some of the kitchen cupboards, with a washer, trough and dryer.

Our ocean view bedroom was dominated by a king size bed and had plenty of storage space and a safe to keep valuables in the wardrobes. The bed we really comfy, much more so than some we’ve slept in. If you like to sleep in a dark room, I’d sugget that you pack a sleeping mask, as the blinds don’t block out much light.

The spacious ensuite was well appointed with a deep spa bath and rainforest shower, as well as good quality toiletries.

Little Chef was in his own bedroom which he was stoked about, a twin room, which also had its own bathroom with shower.

There’s a floodlit tennis court to have a hit about on.

The stunning infinity pool overlooks the beach. The heated pool has a shallow (40cm) paddling area at one end for kids, with some fountains. There’s also a covered spa.

If our itinerary hadn’t been so full, I’d have happily lazed on a sun lounger with a girly novel while the boys swam in the pool. You really don’t need to travel far to get that relaxed holiday feeling.

We thouroughly enjoyed our stay at Seashells!
