We needed a two-bedroom apartment while visiting relatives who live in Hillarys in Perth. We found this place on the internet based on its proximity to our family, not that we were looking for resort accommodation. As things turned out, it was an ideal place to stay. The accommodation is well appointed, clean and comfortable. The staff are helpful and attentive - when a light fitting exploded after hours, the duty manager personally vacuumed glass fragments from the carpet and settee! There is a pool and plenty of underground parking. Perhaps the most attractive feature is the nearby marina with its range of upmarket shops and restaurants. They are literally a five-minute walk away, past lots of interesting (and expensive!) boats. For those with kids, there's a safe swimming beach between the marina and the shore that is cleaned each day and patrolled. There are also picnic facilities and an amusement park right there to keep the teenagers occupied and close by. The surf beach is close by too on the other side of the resort, just beyond the Aquarium of WA, also worth a visit. The one drawback is that there is no supermarket or even a convenience store at the marina itself. Still, a ten-minute drive delivers you to one of three nearby shopping centres, including a massive Westfield pile at Karingyup, where each of the major supermarket chains is represented. We were delighted by the local IGA at Padbury which had all we needed, was open at convenient times and well stocked. Given that the resort backs onto a large car park for the marina, you'd be advised to choose the bedroom facing the marina rather than the other direction. The car park can get noisy, especially late on Saturday night as people return to their cars. All up, it's a very comfortable, convenient and pleasant place to spend the night after days exploring Perth and its surrounds. For those keen on Rottnest, there's a fast ferry that leaves from the marina at regular times.
