Spent two nights in a two bedroom unit which was very spacious. Good sized kitchen and bathroom. Unit was clean and well kept. Short walk through the grounds to Blacks Beach. Two small pools and spa on site. Would stay here again

Overall good. Room need a few things done to it like laundry door did not work properly, bath was slippery for our kids to shower. Pool area was quiet nice apart from being dirty, just little things would have made it better

Mackay is where the tropics really start, there is lots to see in this sugarcane town for holidays. The best spot to stay is at the northern beaches area, Blacks Beach being the best by far for its 7 km of beach. The Shores is a tropical holiday complex right on the beach, you walk out from the gardens right... More

The Shores has a terrific location, Kerryn & Peter were very friendly and made every effort to make our stay comfortable. The apartment we stayed in was a little old and loved but was very clean and functional, what you'd expect for this level of holiday apartment.

It's not a new place but it does the job. Plenty of facilities with multiple pools, tennis, volleyball, outdoor bbq area an the beach at your backdoor. The beds were quite comfortable. The shower door needed some work an we had some ant visitors in the kitchen area but other than that its all good. The manger is a funny... More

Thanks for the feedback and review of your recent stay with us. We hope we get to see you again soon. I will let Peter know you thought he was a funny guy. I will also check to see if he's fixed the shower door yet. Probably got sidetracked chatting with guests. More

The Shores Holiday Apartments is a wonderful place to stay for a weekend getaway. We stayed in a townhouse - spacious living arrangement. The only problem was the parking space as the area is quite narrow. Other than that, it was superb. If you are into swimming, there's the swimming pool. Or if you are sporty, the tennis court awaits.... More

Thanks for taking the time to review our holiday apartments. Yes our carports are quire narrow. They were built back when cars were smaller. We do have a number of parking bays that are available for our guests who have larger vehicles but they are not undercover and are further away from the units. So not ideal for some guests.... More

Beautiful setting, loved the tropical gardens and the tennis courts which we made great use of. Rooms were lovely and the massive shower with double showers was bliss. My teenage boys also enjoyed the location, right on the beach and still close to everything.
