Thank you for your review. Yes the houses with plunge pools are very popular even throughout winter as they are gas heated to 30 degrees. We hope to see you again soon.
If you travel about 7km along the Bussel Highway from Queens Street which is like the main street of Busselton, you will arrive at Aqua Resort. It's after the Broadwater Shopping Centre, Sebel Resort and the Abbey Beach Resort. So along that stretch of hotels, it's the farthest away but the newest and most up-market. The compound is tight but well designed and landscaped such that each of the garden grove units were adequately private. The tennis court is right by the reception and the gym and swimming pool at the opposite end near the sea. These were unfortunately closed when we were there for renovations but we were informed in advanced which was really good of Aqua. Units A to G each had 2 floors with either the top floor or bottom floor separately rentable or can be rented together. The lower unit has 2 bedrooms and a heated plunge pool. The upper unit 3 bedrooms and more spacious. We had the upper floor in Apartment F. Everything was new, clean and tidy. Kitchen had good facilities and equipment. There was even a wine fridge. There was also a fireplace. We read somewhere on TA that it was difficult to start but we got the hang of it after a while. Everything is set-up luxuriously. We did have a couple of hiccups. Upon check-in, 2 of the bedrooms were locked and we were told we booked for only one bedroom. That was rectified quite quickly. We checked in at about 4.30pm and fortunately had enough time to bring this up to the receptionist before they closed at 5. We also had our card keys deactivated at 12 noon on check out day even though we paid the late check out fee of A$55 in advance. Internet was charged at A$20 per stay but the speed and coverage (can't get it in the bedroom) remains to be desired. Tennis courts were charged at A$20 per hour and that excludes rental of equipment so not surprised we didn't see anyone playing tennis during out stay. (How about lowering the fees?) Overall still had a good and relaxing holiday and would recommend this to people who just want to relax.
Thank you Shrek-loves-Fiona for your very detailed review. You could be a travel blogger. I am pleased you enjoyed your stay and that we were able to promptly rectify any minor issues you had. Just to clarify the tennis court is free to hire. There is a fee only for the hire of tennis court equipment if you did not remember to bring your own. Thank you for the photos. The views from the Upstairs apartment overlooking Geographe Bay are always memorable.
We spent three nights in a one bedroom, beach facing apartment. The quality of the apartment was outstanding, spotlessly clean, great fireplace, balcony with BBQ, kitchen is fully equipped, comfortable beds. Great place to stay and drive down to Margaret River wineries. Couldn't recommend more highly.
HI Tanya 67. Thank you for a very lovely review. So pleased you enjoyed your stay. We receive a lot of wonderful compliments about the beachfront apartments. Something about having an ocean view makes it very special. Kind Regards. Liz West - Administration
We stayed at the resort for a few days for the Busselton 1/2 Iron man. The house was large, clean with everything we could have wanted or needed. The location and grounds were perfect. Could not fault,would highly recommend the resort,
Thank you for your favorable review and high recommendation. We look forward to having you stay for next years Ironman Event.
Best Regards Team Aqua
We rented a house for a weekend wedding and were amazed. Not only we were allowed to check in at midday, but the house itself was nothing short of spectacular. It is was way better in person than in photos. Even though there are many houses in a row, you really feel like you're in your own private retreat (lots of surrounding peppermint groves help). From what I could tell, the houses are quite similar in size and design. Our house design was very modern and utilised space and light magnificently. The ceilings are also huge! Having stayed here, I would never again stay and The Broadwater or Abbey Beach Resort—it really is no comparison. We actually visited some family at Broadwater that same weekend and could not believe the difference in space and quality (and Aqua was cheaper!).
Very pleased you enjoyed your stay. We do try to look after wedding guests by offering special rates and early check-in where possible. We agree our beach houses are a cut above the average. The peppermint trees definitely adds to the atmosphere and charm of the property. We look forward to your return visit.
Aqua Resort is, simply put just beautiful; the pictures on the website do not do justice to how awesome the property really is. The second you walk in the door, the WOW factor hits you; seeing the natural greenery through the large expanses of glass, the quality and beauty of the house, the outdoor area and garden. I honestly don't know where to stop; this is by far the most enjoyable property we've stayed in, it feels like home, a place where you can relax, enjoy and feel as if you belong there. Everything is of the highest standard and there's nothing you could want for; it's all there. The location is perfect and private and the beach is quiet with gentle waves lapping the white sand. The only complaint is that our stay was too short but next time we come over this way we'll make sure we stay much longer; it was hard to pack up and leave. Thank you so much Aqua Resort, your property is leagues above the competition in every way 10/10.
Hi Michelle A
