Perth, Turquoise Coast and Albany

We have booked a few more accommodations. For Perth, we will be staying 4 nights at the Sebel Perth East apartments. We went for a 1 bedroom river view apartment. I wanted a full kitchen even though we may not cook. A river view should be nice. Here is what Frommer's says about the apartment.

On the way to Kalbarri, we have decided to stay in Jurien Bay instead of Cervantes. It just seemed as if there would be more facilities in Jurien Bay. Plus, the Best Western was booked. I've found a new B&B, The Heights in Jurien Bay. The Jurien Bay Hotel doesn't seem to have any web presence so I decided not to call. I tried an email in the Lonely Planet and got no response. The Heights have been very responsive which is great. I think it will be good for the Turquoise Coast.

For Albany, we were trying a B&B between Albany and Porongurup. They have a botany focus and would have been great. But I haven't gotten a response from email. So instead we have gone with what was our original first choice, Balneaire Seaside Resort. The owner has been great to work with and very responsive. It is a little bigger than we need since it is a two bedroom but it is near Middleton Beach which will be nice. I also considered the Foreshore Apartments. A Fodor's member stayed there and had good things to say about the apartment. But the beach won out.

So we have almost all our accommodations. We only have to do the 'Wheatland' area between Kalbarri and Albany. That is a little bit harder because these are small hotel/motels with no email.

But I am starting to finally get excited. Just under two months!
