Stayed in a 2br 2bath apt and pleasantly surprised at the quality of these self contained apartments. Would suggest having a car would make life easier but not essential. Super close to beach (note that apartments on levels 1+2 don't have sea views due to vegetation), 10min walk to local Marcoola shops for great cafe coffee and dinner at the... More

It was fully equipped and had everything needed if you wanted to cook meals. Two bathrooms with showers and baths in each, the master had a spa bath. The roof top pool was heated and... More

We stayed in a three bedroom apartment with my family and we all loved it. Nice and spacious which was great for 6 adults. Great if you don't want to be in the busy part of the Sunshine Coast. Would stay here again.

We stayed in a ground floor 3 bedroom apartment which had a private heated pool. Whiteshells is a luxurious place to stay. Short walk to beautiful beaches. A great area, walk to coffee shops and cafes. Marcoola has a country town feel about it, so if you want to stay away from the crowds this is the place. Short drive... More

Lovely place to stay. Away from the crowds, very quite over Easter. Big 2 bedroom apartment, clean and well appointed. Short walk to beach and walking track. Easy check in helpful staff, gave great information on the area. Good size car parks. Would definitely stay again.

Stayed in a three bedroom apartment with private swimming pool. Great beach location. Apartment had terrific features. Resort enforces no party policy so it was a quiet and relaxing stay. Great Italian restaurant within walking distance and a short drive to Mt Coolum where there is a great walking track to the summit. Will be back!!!

Prefect location for exploring the sunshine coast, 20 minutes from everything. Short walk to beach and surrounded by little eateries. The apartments are a little worn but decor and fit out was terrific. The only thing that let it down was the apartment manager. Our air-conditioning stopped working and when we brought this up we were dismissed and told to... More

Thank you for your review, When you reported that you felt that your air conditioning had not been working the previous night and that none of you could sleep all night, I did suggest that you could have opened up the bifold doors and windows as due to the storm we had experienced, it was raining, windy and beautifully cool....
