My wife and I, who live in BC, Canada, have stayed at the Seawall Apartments at least 4 times over the last 12 years. We've watched the apartments change from charming and comfortable to charming and luxurious. What hasn't changed is the friendliness and professionalism of Rachel and the rest of the staff. This year, we spent a week in February in the School House, which is now our favourite, although each apartment we have stayed in is unique and has its own special appeal. The whole area of Glenelg, which was once my home, is a wonderful place to visit. The beach is close and safe and almost unoccupied, even on the weekends. We've been to beaches all over the world and none of them are a match for the clean sand, calm waters and privacy of Glenelg. When you add to this the beautiful promenade and proximity to Glenelg centre, you have a winner. Jump on the tram and 20 minutes later you're in Adelaide. We'll be back. Thank you to all of the staff for a wonderful stay.

Room Tip: Phone ahead. The staff will match the room to your needs.

Stayed in the School House, great place for a BBQ evening meal with a beautiful view. Across the grass and esplanade to the beach. Very short stroll to Glenelg with amenities. Good place if you want to walk the beach in either direction, maybe a short jog in the morning too

Room Tip: Anything on the front will give an great view however you can easily walk around and sit on the gras...

Stayed 05 Oct and after departing to Alice Springs and Uluru, returned for 2 nights on 09 Oct. First room quirky but for pensioners, a bathroom on a different floor to the bedroom is not the best idea. No views. Luggage minded whilst we were away and although we returned "unexpectedly" the mix up was soon sorted out. Second 'room' was a 3 bedroomed accommodation normally, so enormous for just us 2. Large, totally equiped kitchen and extremely comfortable surroundings overlooking the prom. The owners were very friendly and we felt as if we were leaving friends when we checked out. They earn their accolades but do it effortlessley. Wish we could stay there more often but the UK is a bit of a trot

Room Tip: We enjoy a sea view and this is the place for it

My husband and I live in Adelaide and were fortunate enough to have a night away from the kids! We have always wanted to stay at Seawall Apartments in Glenelg and it was even better than we expected!

We were greeted with such friendly service - genuine and made us feel 'at home' - the kind of service that is hardly received these days! We stayed in 3 Olive Court which is just stunning with a private balcony overlooking the ocean. The view is uninterrupted with nothing but a walking/cycling track and grassed area between us and the beach. It felt like we were a million miles from home! The apartment had two bedrooms with a beautiful spa. The beds were so comfortable and the furnishings (throw rugs and cushions) created such a relaxing and cosy atmosphere.

When the time came to eat/drink/shop - having Jetty Road just a short stroll away was fantastic! The range of restaurants, cafes and pubs was endless!

When it was time to leave it felt as though we had stayed there for a week! We have since recommended Seawall Apartments to all of our friends and family and will definitely return. It is a home away from home with the luxury of the beach at your front door. Thank you Seawall Apartments for a great break away!

Room Tip: The Olive Court Apartments are just beautiful with private balconies overlooking the beach. Stunnin...

Just returned from fabulous week-long stay at the Seawall Apartments. We were originally booked into a hotel in Glenelg but on our first evening stroll came across Seawall and fell in love with the place on sight. We booked ourselves in as soon as an apartment became available. I fully endorse what other reviewers have said here about the great atmosphere, friendly and helpful staff and well appointed apartments with everything you need for a relaxing home from home holiday experience. We are already planning our return trip!

This was my third time at Seawall, this time I stayed in the Courtyard. Everything in this place is perfect, quiet location, excellent facilities and easy to park/ drive off to all directions. Read my previous reviews here, totally recommend! I travel for most of the year for business, and Seawall remains, by far the best serviced apartment I stay. Those sunsets are breathtaking!!!!Cannot wait to go back next year, do not look anywhere else while in Adelaide.

Room Tip: I stayed in Olive Mews and Courtyard - both perfect....Nothing bad to say really...

We spent our last two nights here after touring Australia for 6 weeks, it 'topped' off what has been a great holiday. It was perfect, fab accomodation, fab views, welcome drinks to settle us in, great staff - I can' t say enough. Apartment had seaview it was just great. Would highly recommend staying here hopefully once weve saved the pennies and we visit Aus once again we shall stay here.

Room Tip: Ask for seaview !
