We have been staying at Seashells twice a year for the past 8 years. The accommodation is lovely. The fact that they change the bath towels daily is an improvement and make the bed up is a bonus. We usually book the apartment rooms but this time landed with a studio room (201). Clean, compact with balcony overlooking the beautiful gardens. Caves house next door is a thoughtfully and fabulously restored heritage building where you will find great food and drink, and a great atmosphere. The music goes off around 9pmish, weekends, which we thought was a little early when everyone is enjoying their selves. So, Seashells is a relaxing resort yes, but you can’t have everything. Caves house is a winner for us.
After deciding to go away for a girls weekend the destination of Yallingup was an easy choice. Only 2 1/2-3 hours from Perth it’s an easy drive down using The Bussell Highway. Seashells is located right next door to Caves House and shares a view of the beautiful gardens. Our apartment was one bedroom which had two single beds. The bathroom was a decent size and had a lovely big tub for those who like to soak. The living area is really spacious and included a table and chairs for indoor dining. There was a large balcony overlooking the lovely gardens with a great view of the hotel next door. The kitchen was small but was very functional and had four of everything. There is also a washer and dryer in the cupboard. We ended up eating dinner in our room both nights having stopped at Bunbury Farmers Market on The was down. We stocked up on cold meats and cheese among other things. We ate our meals on the balcony and enjoyed the mild weather. On satellite night there was a band performing st the hotel so we got to enjoy that too. The music finished by 9:30 so it didn’t keep any of the little kids staying awake to late. The apartment was very clean and had plenty of spare pillows and towels. It’s a lovely quiet place and won’t cost a fortune to stay there. It’s also a great place to use as a base if your going to explore some of the wineries and galleries. The beaches are 1st class and the surfing is world renowned if that’s your thing. There’s also a selection of some of the best crystal caves in the world which very in their level of difficulty. Well worth a look at.
A great location, central to the NW corner of the Cape Naturalist area. Room presentation very good. Beds are quite firm so if not to your likely ask for the mattress softener to be added to your bed prior.
My husband and I recently spent 2 nights at Seashells in Yallingup in a 1 bedroom apartment. We loved everything about our stay except for the beds...I would have to say they were the worst I have ever experienced! So hard it felt like we were sleeping on the floor...on the second night staff did provide a mattress topper which made a slight improvement. That being said, the rest of the stay was wonderful. Our apartment was lovely with views across the gardens and it was only a short walk across the lawn to Caves House for a meal or a drink and some live music. If it weren’t for the beds we would definitely return.
A part of our Australian holiday was in Yalling up, WA, when we stayed at the Seashells apartments. We found it 5 Star in all respects, clean, quiet, good local shops and stores, and very helpful staff. The whole setup is maintained to a high standard. It’s location is just a 10 minute walk through gardens to a brilliant sandy beach, and is surrounded by numerous art galleries and wineries. Even a brewery! Adjacent to the accommodation is the Caves Hotel in the Art Deco style where one can visit for a drink or meal with entertainment every evening in the summer, and a small craft market Wednesday evenings. The Caves are close by although we did not visit. The waves coming in are huge, making this part of the coast very popular for surfers, but there has been an increase in shark attacks recently!
The rooms are big, spacious and well equipped. The place is well appointed and in such a lovely place. I found 90% of everything to be faultless but the other 10% needs fixing. I didn’t really care and I’m almost happy if it kept prices down but the rooms are not serviced other than weekly. This means you’ve got to go ask at reception for more shampoo, soap, dishwasher powder etc, and you’re responsible for putting out your garbage. Just a note here. And there is no food on site. You have to go next door for this to the Caves Beach hotel (that is no affiliated so no room charge etc) Again, this was of small consequence to me but worth noting. They also don’t supply beach towels. Otherwise I find Seashells to be a 5/5 place!
I'm sitting on the top floor on the balcony of our room early morning, before anyone is up. It is fresh but so quiet, except for the galahs, 28's, magpies and crows. Everything is green, just beautiful. I can hear the waves rolling in just over the trees. Our room is great. Nice size lounge, very comfortable lounge suite, small table and chairs, big TV. The kitchen is well set up and easy to use, even has a small laundry in the cupboard. Bedroom has kingsize bed, comfortable, with second TV. Bathroom has separate bath and shower. There is a lift as well as stairs for higher floors. Ample parking. If you dont want to cook, go next door to Caves House, food is great with plenty of different places to sit comfortably. Had the best time, we will be back. Thanks Seashells.
We are fortunate to live in the south west (a couple of hours from Yallingup), we have also previously worked at several places near Yallingup and know the area very well. Seashells is a perfect location, a short lovely walk through the hotel gardens to the beach, handy shop next door does great salads. The accommodation is very comfortable and clean and the balcony wonderfully relaxing. Staff were accommodating with a specific room request. Have stayed before and already looking forward to our next stay.
As far as the accommodation was concerned, it was top quality, (kitchen area, lounge, bath room) & balcony - great. Good beds & mostly quiet (the music at the restaurant finished early enough not to be a problem). The on site bakery was very good plus a shop with with a reasonable selection of food & other things that you might need during your stay. Also a wine & beer shop. What we were not so keen on was the restaurant - it seemed to be chips with everything. Pizza shack on site, but mainly what we didn't appreciate was the music/ noise (although it was popular) in the early evening - but it did not go on too long. It was a pleasant walk to the beach, taking about 15 mins, but the cafe there closed early afternoon. Would we stay again - the answer is unlikely simply because we would be looking for somewhere with better options for dinner..
Western Aus itself is quieter than the East Coast and the father you go from Perth the quieter it gets. This hotel reflected that, the rooms themselves were good, without being over modern but not old fashioned. Perfectly fine in fact. You are very much left to get on with things, and all rooms have facilities if you want to cook in. Late check in (after 5.00pm) has to be arranged an don't expect much going on anywhere after 8.00pm, in fact most people eat around 6.00pm. Locally, not much, the attached bar and restaurant were actually pretty good. live music and a pretty varied menu. A pizza shack too. Also there is a bakers and general store attached. Both as if you've gone back to the 1950's. but quaint and the store does good sandwiches to take away. Staff a bit surely in the hotel, but all the catering staff (all virtually surfers earning cash) were nice and chilled as you'd expect. A car is a must in this area to explore the Margaret River region and vineyards or get into the local towns. There are no taxis available. There is a very good beach a 10 minute walk. This is a very quiet, relaxed part of the world, simple pleasures, although we did find a couple of good restaurants, most of which are attached to the vineyards.
