“What a beautiful apartment!!  It had everything we needed and so much more.  We were very comfortable.  Too comfortable in fact!  It was very hard to leave.  … service from my initial enquiry through to the end of our stay was very professional and helpful.  We will most definitely be back.  Thank you very much.”

“We had a wonderful time, the apartment is beautiful and we enjoyed it so much.  Many thanks.  “I do not think you can improve on anything because everything from the furnishings, utensils, bedding, lighting and sheer comfort and style of the apartment was extremely well thought out and offered us luxury way beyond our expectations. Your professional attitude when booking and upon our arrival is well worth mentioning also.
Must wine bar was beautiful and the voucher for $200 well and truly covered the cost of the meal. We visited two wineries, Leeuwin Estate and Voyager estate. We had fab lunches in both wineries and were unable to decide on which one was the best. We have the most fantastic time and enjoyed celebrating our 25th Wedding Anniversary in style.
We cannot wait to go back down again.”

“We absolutely loved our stay at Constellation Apartments. They are fitted out so well and there was nothing that we needed that wasn’t already there. The attention to detail is exceptional. We came down there for a relaxing weekend away and that is exactly what we got. Thank you so much for everything and we will definitely be back – we have told everyone about them.  Thanks.  PS the dinner at Must was lovely too.”

“(We) thoroughly enjoyed our time at Constellation Apartment Aquila and honestly wish we had booked longer. We couldn’t fault anything at all, the apartment itself was so luxurious and comfortable making our limited time away so special and relaxing. Every little detail really has been so well taken care of.
It was also really nice to be met by yourself at a time that suited us rather than the standard check in. You were very professional from the first time I spoke with you over the phone enquiring about booking and were very prompt with replies to our questions via email. We were very impressed by you being at the apartment prior to us arriving heating it up and ensuring there were breakfast supplies in the fridge. The fresh flowers certainly was a lovely touch and the gift voucher to Must was also a great idea and I would encourage Constellation Apartments to continue with those.
We also had wonderful experiences with all the local business especially Voyager Estate and Vasse Felix.
(We) will certainly be back in hopefully the near future to enjoy another wonderful weekend.
Thank you again for all your assistance.”

“The apartment was amazing! We were very happy with it & loved everything about it. The check in was so easy & the girl was very helpful. Great location, quiet, secure, decked out nicely. Worth the price. 🙂 No drama’s at all. Couldn’t be critical of it if you asked me to be!”

“We had a lovely time in Margaret River, the accommodation was amazing, really lovely. Very much liked the warm tiles in the bathroom and the large amount of space overall in the apartment. I have been talking to all my friends about it and will highly recommend Constellation to everyone. Not much to improve on really, just wish we were there for longer!”

“We really loved the apartment. We have been lucky enough to stay in some lovely places over the years and felt that Constellation stood up well to comparison with those. The decorations and equipment were exceptional….the cooking implements, entertainment equipment, candles, cushions, artworks and reading materials were all top quality and very well chosen. The flowers were stunning. We thought the kitchen provisions were generous and well thought out. The bathrooms were beautifully equipped with lovely towels and toiletries. We enjoyed the heated floors too. The attention to detail really ensures a very pleasant stay and makes Constellation much more than just “accommodation” but a very pleasant home away from home.
We very much enjoyed our night at Must and wished we had a chance to go a second time: the food and the wine list were both very good.
Sean’s “best of the best” wine tour was a very pleasant surprise. He is very friendly person with passion for, and knowledge about, the district. We felt that he went out of his way to ensure a range of experiences which meant the tour was better overall than the sum of the individual parts. Although some of the activities he offers can be done independently, he manages to cover quite a lot of ground without making the day arduous. And, he drives well off-road!
With respect to other local businesses, we found many high quality offerings and not just in the food and wine department!
We had a couple of lovely dinners at home, largely sourced from the Larder with wine from the Vintec fridge in the apartment.
We thought that Jahroc Gallery had a lot of interesting art.
We very much enjoyed a casual lunch at Lamont’s…it is possible to have a lighter meal and to try some of the wines before having a glass with lunch. The setting is very pretty and the adjacent Gunyulgap Gallery was stunning with work across a range of media.
Lunch at Voyager was very good. The dining room is beautiful and we enjoyed the stunning garden.
We enjoyed looking around Vasse Felix and seeing art from the Janet Holmes à Court’s collection. We were sorry that we visited at the wrong time of day for lunch.
We had a lovely lunch at Leuwin and enjoyed their tasting flight of food and wine. We also found the label collection of artworks in the cellar below interesting.
The local bookshops are both very good, but especially the larger one.
We enjoyed a number of other smaller galleries but didn’t see them all because some are only open on the weekend.
Even the Dome was very pleasant for coffee and a read of the papers one morning!
Thanks for your tips about the local area…they were all very helpful. We really enjoyed our stay at Constellation Apartments and would love to come again.”

“We had a great time in the apartment – it truly is luxurious and we wouldn’t hesitate to stay there again when we are next in town. The apartment is well maintained, comfortable and in a great location. Everyone of the local businesses we interacted with provided a great experience whether it was a shoe shop, the Kodak place, the MR Hotel or Must. Thanks again for your assistance onsite and with our booking – we hope to be back!”

“Luck sometimes plays a large role in our lives. Despite our best efforts in planning this trip to the Margaret River which commenced in May of last year, our luck was to have you at the end of the phone and email when we reserved the dates at Constellation Apartments. Your suggestions and recommendations have been wonderful and have ensured that our stay at the apartment and in the region has been a great success.
By choosing the Serendipity Package we enjoyed a dinner at Must restaurant, which we probably would have found by ourselves given the location of the restaurant and its style and elegance. We are not at all sure that our research efforts on line and at the local Information office would definitively have led us to take a day tour with Sean Blocksidge. This is where our luck started. Thanks to your recommendation, we learnt many interesting aspects about the local history, flora, fauna, viticulture and as well gleaned some great tips from Sean inclusive of where best to sample the local marron delicacy ….downstairs at Waves! Sean’s tour is an excellent scene setter for appreciating the area’s unique and diverse offerings. Sean urged us to visit Voyager Estate given his many years of previous experience there as Operations Manager. We did better and reserved places on a 1.5 hour tour of the Winery itself which was conducted by the enthusiastic and experienced Brita.
The Constellation Apartments are advertised as “Five stars and more” with which we concur. You welcomed us by saying “welcome to your home away from home” and indeed this is how we feel about Aquila. It will be rather sad to leave this gorgeous apartment on Friday morning.
The owners of the apartment have indeed created a “home”. The layout, space and attention to detail are impressive. We appreciate the dark blinds in the bedroom which do not permit the light to enter at dawn and the lighter blinds in the living area which block out the sun. The original artwork and prints by aboriginal painters featured throughout the apartment are stunning. And finally, the two extra external spaces create that added dimension of space which lends itself to a very relaxing environment.
The fully equipped kitchen is the best that we have experienced in our many and varied national and international travels. So much so, that I have taken a photograph of the cutlery draw for our vacation album! In our view, this presentation of cutlery takes first prize. There is also plentiful crockery and glass ware of the highest quality and enough pots, pans and cooking equipment to thrill a cordon bleu chef. We appreciated the vacuum and corker combination to expel the air and seal overnight those special bottles of Margaret River wine. Dimmer switches and candles complete the picture. Every small and large detail has been thought of.
The bathroom and second bathroom laundry are of high quality. We appreciated your touch of turning on the floor tiling to a warm ambience.
We very much appreciated your warm welcome, the detailed explanations of how the apartment works, the beautiful flowers which grace the dining table and bathroom, your speedy attention to the malfunctioning microwave, your suggestions for touring the area including recommending the beautiful Boranup Drive and putting us in touch with The Larder.
Thank you very much for making our stay so memorable and enjoyable.”

“We loved the apartment and it felt like home for the 5 days we were there. The design and fit out of the apartment are of a very high standard, the owner clearly has good taste. In terms of Sean and the Margaret River Discovery Co, he was really good. Great tour and
Sean is a good guy to spend the day with, all in all very positive. We enjoyed Must, good wines, atmosphere and in general the food was good, we visited a couple of times.”

“Most regrettably, we are now back in Canada. We absolutely loved our stay in MR and especially the apartment. Your warm welcome and all the special little touches were noticed and appreciated. Thanks so much. Can’t wait to return (despite the 22 hrs in the airplane plus the Sydney-Perth flight). Thanks again.”

“We loved the apartment and really didn’t want to leave. It was even better than it looked in the photos! Thanks again for all your help. We will definitely come back and stay again!”

“Firstly let me thank you for you help, without your attention to detail and planning there is no way we would have got so much out of the days spent in the River. On the apartment, it was fantastic and very well located, central to everyting. Everything that you could possibly want was there and it was stunningly appointed. Taken away many smart ideas and brand names from the fit out. On the local food & wine experience: The wine tour with Sean was fantastic and very personal. The Cape Mentelle wine brief and degutation tour was very informative and true value. On restaurants: MUST food is superb. The winery restaurants were great, Xanadu, Vasse, Voyager and Leeuwin. We also bought a swag of marron one day from a winery nearby and grilled them at home – stunning. We will be back…….. Many thanks again.”

“We found the accom/facilities second to none, I doubt we could suggest any further improvements to the outstanding situation which you are providing, we will be telling all our friends there is only one place to stay in town, look forward to using the apartments again, not too long a wait before we can do it again hopefully.”

“We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The apartments are truly 5 star and we only wished we had longer. “

“Time and life are usually sort of rushed – at least in our world! Two days here changed all that: the beautiful apartment, the attention to every smallest detail, the generosity of spirit that has been fed into the building to make it the most welcoming and comforting home… Thanks for a calm, enveloping peaceful stay at Cygnus.”
