Dunsborough offers a surprisingly good holiday vacation - and the Regency resort apartments are regarded as one of the best places to stay at. You may get better value by renting out a local house but it would be difficult to beat the location of a beachside Regency apartment. Ours had 3 bedrooms, in theory accommodating up to 4 adults and 4 kids, and spacious with great views and grass in between the house and beach for the kids to play on. Good facilities; there is internet but not cheap and not reliable. The beach side footpath takes you to town in 10 minutes or to other beaches/bays close by (eg snorkelling/swimming in castle bay). There are limited fine dining options in Dunsborough (although the cafes and fish and chip shop are good) - so better to use the outside BBQ and buy from the local butchers - but there are great restaurants in the wineries, particularly Lamonts for casual lunch and Vasse Felix or Voyager for upmarket.
There is a wide variety of nearby family activities on offer from surfing or snorkelling at Yallingup reef/lagoon, touring the Cape Naturaliste lighthouse, Eagle bay brewery and Simmos ice creamery/kids playground. The north facing beaches of Meelup, Bunker Bay and Eagle Bay are protected from the surf; sunsets can be great from the western coast but no decent beaches. Further afield there are plenty of caves (with proper visitor centre and cafe at Lake Cave, the most attractive) and driving down Boranup drive through the Karri forest. Bunbury offers dolphin boat tours in the bay, apparently there are whale watching tours until early December. Or just have a long lunch at one of the wineries, relax by the beach before dinner in your apartment.
