Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVED IT Thanks shells on the shore for a fantastic working retreat. I took my entire leadership team to stay at Shells on the Shore renting both Dolphins & Possums apartment and it was the perfect location for the team to get away and bond. Love the short walk to Fingal beach which is just a beautiful beach. The apartments are fantastic and amazing value for money we had 8 people sleeping in both apartments and there was plenty of space for us all with really beautifully done new bathrooms upstairs and down. Possums has a new kitchen also which was just lovely and the front gardens look lovely its been landscaped really well. The driveway housed 4 cars easily allowing us to unload both apartments without having to park on the road although as we went to shoal bay (3 min drive) and back we eneded up parking one car on the street which has a spot right at the front entry. Apartments were spotlessly clean we rented the linen as it was so convenient and had no issues with this also. Thanks Shells on the Shore we will be back!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A nice stay :) My husband and I stayed in the Dolphin apartment for 1 night. Overall the apartment was very spacious, clean and modern although the 'master bedroom' is quite small but that was ok for our 1 night. Also, when we arrived we were hit with a very strong disinfectant/bleach smell; obviously the apartment had just been cleaned but it was a little offputting!! If you plan on cooking up a storm while you are here I would suggest bringing your own chef's knife...and your own tea and sugar! Upstairs neighbours (in the possum apartment) may be a problem if they are noisy. We didn't have much issue but a family was staying above and you can hear the little ones' footsteps running about! Nevertheless, I would stay here again and would recommend this place to other visitors. Thank you Michelle for having us, particularly on short notice!
