About Seawall Apartments


In 2017 Seawall celebrated 40 years of business and had a fabulous party to mark the occasion.

Founded in 1977 by the late Alan Osborne, his daughter Rachael has continued the business for the last 19 years offering unique boutique beachside accommodation.

Our team, dressed to the 1977 party theme - left to right: Alana, Sophie, Peter, Rachael, David, Jacob and Mardi.

Seawall's 1, 2, 3 and 4 bedroom apartments are located on the beachfront in 7 quite distinct heritage buildings with fresh, modern interiors. Spanning four blocks on Glenelg's Esplanade, south of the Glenelg Jetty, you can't get any closer to the beach for your seaside escape!


The School House apartment is part of a grand 1889 terrace which forms part of the Seawall Apartments complex. From 1912-1937 it was operated as a prestigious boys school, Holdfast Bay Preparatory. The students used Glenelg Beach as their playground!

The unusual 2-storey Spanish Deco Building called 'Olive Court' dates from 1920 and stands like a stately old dame overlooking Glenelg Beach.

The Beach House and Boat House apartments are housed in a beautiful house which dates from 1910.  It still has its original detailed high plaster ceilings, beautiful stained-glass windows and polished floorboards.

Our wonderful guests over the past 40 years continue to call Seawall their special home away from home.

Memories are made at The Bay! We look forward to welcoming you soon.
