Rated 5 out of 5 by from My two friends and I stayed at this holiday house during our two-week community health nursing placement. The house was very comfortable, had great sunset views just outside the house, and provided us with all our necessities as university students. The house is also within five-minute drives to the big shopping centres, and within walking distances to the beaches, cafes and convenience stores. Compared to other accommodations, we're glad to have chosen this place to stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Myself and 3 friends stayed at Mel Verde for 4 weeks whilst we were on clinical placement at Shellharbour Hospital. We found the house very suitable for our needs, the layout of the house ment we had our privacy from each other and the location itself was quiet considering it is on the main street of Shellharbour.Short walk to shops and cafe were very conveinent and the hospital was a 5 minute drive.We would definately recommend Mel Verde to other students wanting more comfortable quiet accomodation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My family & I attended a family wedding in Nov & stayed at this property. We found the house to be very neat & comfortable not to mention great value for money - cheaper than staying in a caravan. We are planning to return for a summer holiday .
