A secluded private swimming pool was the highlight of my stay at Broome’s The Pearle of Cable Beach.

My pool at Broome’s The Pearle of Cable Beach.

Given the Pearle is around a 15 minute walk to Broome’s famous Cable Beach, the pool was especially welcome when daytime temperatures peaked at around 30 degrees.  The blue lighting of the pool added to the night views from my one bedroom villa, which featured everything I needed for a very comfortable week long stay.

What: Room 56P, a one bedroom villa, The Pearle of Broome, Millington Road, Broome.

Who: JB

When: June 2019.

How Did It Rate

My lounge.

The size of the unit.  Together with a large kitchen, dining and lounge area my unit also included two outdoor areas and the pool. The area at the front of the unit included a standalone laundry, a barbecue, a six seater table and plenty of tropical foliage.  It was a most welcoming area. The rear of the unit also featured plenty of attractive vegetation together with a couch and a chair.  The pool area had two sun lounges and a large umbrella.

The unit’s facilities.  The kitchen contained all the equipment needed to cook a good meal and also included a Nespresso coffee machine and wine and bar fridge. The three couches in the lounge-room were very comfortable, as was the bedroom’s king size bed. A 50 inch television in the lounge area and smaller television in the bedroom featured 10 Foxtel channels, although sadly Fox Footy wasn’t one of them! The internet was free and generally quick and reliable. The bathroom featured two shower options, including a rain shower.

My kitchen and dining area.

The décor. The lush vegetation in the front and back gardens created a tropical feel. Inside, the décor ensured the unit had a light and bright feel.

The pool. My eight metre swimming pool was perfect for a cooling dip. Regular visits from the resort’s pool cleaner ensured the pool was always suitable for swimming.

The rear of my unit.

The unit was very private. A lockable gate lead from the resort’s main road into the unit’s front courtyard.

The resort is opposite a Broome Explorer Bus stop. The bus, which has twice hourly departures during the tourist season, includes stops at Cable Beach, the Boulevard Shopping Centre, Broome’s Chinatown district and Town Beach.

The lounge.

Apart from the bedroom there were no curtains or blinds.  With air-conditioning units in every room, together with ceiling fans, cooling rooms wasn’t a problem. However it was strange not having any window dressings. Similarly there was no carpet. 

The resort has the Pearle Café, which serves breakfast and coffee up to 10.30am, but after that no food is available at the resort. The closest restaurants are around a 10 minute walk away.

The view of my pool at night.

The back of my unit fronted onto Millington Road, and while a fence ensured privacy I could sometimes hear the cars, caravans and buses which use the two caravan parks along this stretch of road.

The resort is around 1.4 kilometres from Cable Beach and while walking to the beach wasn’t a problem for me, it might be for some. Of course, for those with cars there’s plenty of parking at Cable Beach.

The front outdoor entertaining area.

Daily housekeeping servicing isn’t included in the tariff, however guests staying for a week are offered a complimentary mid stay service.

Jenny Burns stayed at the Pearle of Cable Beach at her own expense.
