Jayesh, the owner, is extremely helpful even giving a ride up and down the Esplanade in one of his vintage cars. We stayed for two nights in July and found the place to be of a high quality. Very comfortable and warm and loved the hot tub on the patio. Only a slight negative,it is fairly dark and the lighting... More

We loved staying here! Beautifully decorated apartments right across from the beach. Owner, Jayesh, makes you very welcome on arrival and is happy to help with advice on things to do and places to go. Fully equipped kitchen means you can relax with an easy meal and have it on the balcony enjoying the view. Also, there is full use... More

Stayed 5 nights at the Beachside Cottage which is owned and managed by Five3Five, and just a few blocks down the road from Five3Five. A really fabulous beach house to stay in. The furnishings are beautiful, and the house is extremely well equipped with everything one could wish for. There is even a jacuzzi which is a lot of fun.... More

A true gem, such a lovely place and the owner is a really nice chap and extremely helpful. Ideally located to explore Hervey Bay and Fraser Island. I would stay here again without any hesitation. Do take a bike out and cycle the length of the esplanade, it is a lovely bike ride and very easy. The apartments is right... More

Top floor. Beautifully decorated. Free access to bikes, kayaks & fishing gear. Lovely sunset drive in owners 1928 Chevy. Perfect location - walk to shops, cafes, restaurants (out the gate...turn left or right!!). Across the road for safe swimming. Bike paths/walking paths left & right (again!) for 15kms. Everything about 535 was either filled with "ahhhhs" or "wows"! Hubby &... More

Stayed 2 nights at Five 3 Five. Was blown away by the rooms in this old Queenslander! There are individual apartments some with private balconies and you cant get closer to the beach! Beautiful wooden floors and huge walk in showers and the kitchen was amazing. Wether its for family or a romantic getaway it will suit everyone! As a... More

Fantastic cottage & location. The cottage is well equipped with all the amenities you could ask for. We had the stretch of beach opposite the cottage almost to ourselves. The owner was very friendly & took us for a ride in his fabulous old car to show us round Hervey Bay.

I took my mum, two teenage sons and one of their friends to stay for the night at Beachside Barracks. It looked great on the web so booked it and hoped it would stack up OK when we got there. Well it really exceeded my expectations, lovely airy tastefully decorated apartments and all bedrooms and living room were fully air... More

Four girlfriends and I stayed in Unit 4 (upstairs apartment) for 3 nights. It was such a pleasant change from a hotel or resort - the apartment was clean, tidy and beautifully furnished. Our entire stay was a little quirky, which added to our holiday. Jayesh was a wonderful host - he showed us the sights of Hervey Bay in... More

If you are looking for a quirky fantastic accommodation then the Five3Five is the place to stay, however if you would like to go for a nice meal, bottle of wine after 8pm - Hervey Bay is not the place for you! This sleepy town shuts it's doors at 8pm and heads off home to watch Home & Away before... More
