Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shells on the Shore What a great find. We wanted a very nice place at a reasonable price close to a child friendly beach. The recently renovated apartment more than met our expectations with the bonus of two very helpful owners Michelle and Shane.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional Was absolutely delighted with Shells on the Shore, had an amazing time and will definitely be back. Conveniently located, with beautiful beaches and bush walking tracks just around the corner. Also very relaxing to just chill out in the living room and watch the tv, and admiring beach views from the kitchen and dining rooms.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Modern clean convenient Have stayed before in downstairs apartment. Although upstairs obviously remodelled and very new, layout not practical. No TV in lounge area but in dining area...not relaxing! This definitely needs to change. Main bedroom very small.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good house We enjoyed our stay. The tv didn't work at all & there is no bath the pictures are of both properties so it gets confusing what is in your unit. Not a very child friendly unit tho
