Shelly beach resort was a really great getaway from the hustle and bustle of city life, awesome relaxing pool area and comfortable apartment. Very close (walking distance) to amazing beach, snorkelling a must. Staff are always ready to help and very friendly, A really nice place to stay with my family

Shelly Beach was an incredible experience for us. Mark and Kerryanne made us feel as home as soon as we arrived, they were accommodating and informative whenever we needed then and most importantly.. just genuine lovely people! The townhouse itself was clean, spacious and felt extremely private. I can't fault our stay.. the accommodation was superb, the location was fantastic... More

We loved the location as it's close to the end of Shelly beach where one can swim comfortably due to the natural rock formation, and the fact that Sea Acres Rain Forest is right in front of the resort. It's good that the management team is on site. Mark and Kerryanne are helpful and friendly. They keep the resort in... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in November 2015. The accommodation are small townhouses which are very clean, comfortable and have plenty of room. You have your own parking space. We didn't manage to use the pool as it rained when we were there but it looked very nice. If we are ever in the area again we would definitely... More

Just spent the one night here with the family but must say it was a pleasant stay. The units are very clean, well furnished and freshly renovated by the looks of things. Wasn't expecting that it would be that good to be honest given it only has a 3 star rating - but it is definitely better than 3 star... More

The apartment was spacious and had everything we needed. The pool is slightly heated making it an excellent place to wallow when the weather was a bit cool. it is a beautiful, short stroll to the beach which, as with most beaches along the coast, is stunning.

Stayed at the Resort for 3 Nights. Lovely, clean quiet place. Beautiful location opposite the beach, Not far from city centre. Townhouse is very well appointed, air con, full kitchen, washer & Dryer, parking spot, pool & bbq area. Managers are lovely, there if you need them, not in your face if you don't. Would definitely stay again.

Spacious and tranquil townhouse between the rainforest and the sea, makes a great stopover point between Sydney and Queensland. We stayed 2 nights and wished it was longer. Kids loved the heated pool, spa, games room and tennis court. Somewhat dated but well designed with airy, light and roomy villas. Hosts were friendly and extremely helpful in returning an item...
