About the property


This new 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom house is purpose built for holidays and is ideal for families. It is in a peaceful location, around corner from large park with children's play equipment. There are frequently ibis from the nearby wetlands and groups of pink & grey galahs foraging in the park. The beach is 300m away.

With a separate loungeroom, family room, games room, dining area, as well as a fully equipped kitchen and laundry, there is room to spare. There are two bathrooms. The house has ducted evaporative airconditioning, a natural gas heater. We want this to be a home away from home, so there are also FOXTEL, books, boardgames, CDs, DVDs, Records and Record Player. There are many small items supplied which make holiday life easier - detergent, coffee, tea, clingwrap, aluminium foil, tissues.......and more. The double lockup garage has crab nets and a small cricket set for the children. There is a gas BBQ and a Metters Stove to cook the crabs!

Comfortable, clean and well stocked

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our 6 children for a few nights recently. The house clean and well stocked with everything we would need. Michele was great with communication and making sure we were happy. We did need to move the artwork ornaments out of the way of little fingers :P ... loved the board games, movies, set up, beds, outdoor equipment, crab nets...

Comfortable and properly furnished house

  • 5 of 5

Michele was quick to respond to emails and questions.

Check in and out were simple/free-and-easy.

It is also situated near Busselton jetty, and various supermarkets.

House had everything that I needed, including rice cooker!! It could do with a bit more children entertainment though (Monopoly set needed battery but I couldn't get it going after replacing the battery... Wasn't going to read the manual... so the kids played hide-and-seek). There are plenty of old vynil records for older folks, but limited children DVDs. I would also suggest to provide suggestion to provide some clean rags and a bucket so that those that traveled "far" can get rid of dead bugs from their windscreen. These are just some suggestions to make an excellent place even better.

Overall, I would recommend this place and indeed have spread the word to a few families.

Thank you for the lovely place.

Such an enjoyable stay!!

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely long week at Sea Shells Bayside. The communication with Michele was excellent and the house is even better than the photos.

Everyone made an extra comment on how comfortable the mattresses were as well!

Location was excellent, unfortunately for us we had bad weather and couldn't make use of the beach so close but will be back again!
