Very satisfied with Oceanside. As per the other comments, the decor is a little dated ('pipeline' bunks, metal couch etc), but was clean and had self contained kitchen. Good value for our family of 5 as we could cook our own meals. We had the villa at the back on the hill with a balcony and uninterrupted views of Shark Bay. Regarding someone elses comment about lugging your gear up the stairs - you can drive around the back and park right outside your front door. The pool is small, but fun enough for the kids, plus a ping pong table. As much as the Monkey Mia Dolphins are the draw card for this region, staying in Denham has many benefits. It is only a 15 min drive to the dolphins, which we did every morning except the one day we went south to Shell Beach & Nanga. To save $100/night over 4 nights was well worth a 15min drive every day, plus Denham is more 'central' to the other Shark Bay Attractions. We did the Stromatolites as we left on the last day as they are closer to the main highway. Monkey Mia Tip: If you have the time, spend a whole day relaxing at the beach, dolphins do often come back and the crowds get less as the day goes on. Rangers only feed Max of 3 times though before 12 noon & you have to be one of 'the chosen few' to be picked to feed the dolphins. We saw them 12 times and didn't get picked once, but still an awesome experience and lots of close up photos and video.
