We booked 2 rooms here - one was a 3 bedroom (ground floor) and the other was a 2 bedroom on the 4th floor overlooking the ocean. Apartments were nicely spaced out for both 2 and 3 bedroom. There was a dryer, washer, oven, kettle - everything was catered for. I had asked for a replacement kettle as the one in the apartment was black and looked like fungus had dried up on the inside - a new one appeared outside my door the next day!
Both apartments had showers and jacuzzi as well which was great fun for my kids when they weren't in the pool.The pool was quite nice with a sandy base and sunbeds scattered around. There was also an indoor pool with heated water (I believe).The place is quite well equipped all round - indoor gym looking out into the ocean. Equipment in the gym might need a little TLC but does the job.
The place is safe as you need a fob to get through the doors inside the building all round. You'll also need a fob to get in and out of the parking lot. I was glad that I chose this place as it not only is very conveniently by the beach but also a short walk to the mall which has a supermarket, cafe and chemist. What I wasn't aware was how expensive everything was compared to London!
In general, I was quite happy with all and Perth is very child friendly (I have a 2 and 5 year old). My only gripe would be that cleanliness could be upped a notch. Otherwise, would recommend this place.
