With an ideal location close to shopping village & just across the road from the beach, Shelly Bay turned out to be very good. We had a 3rd floor 1 bed uit & the views to the coast were excellent, save for the trees. If the tree's weren't there the score would be excellent. However the trees are also a... More

We booked this Resort as it was close to the beach and handy for restaurants and shops. My wife and I were impressed when we stepped through the door. Our apartment was very comfortable and just what we wanted for a weeks break that included our 50th Wedding Anniversary. The hosts, Lisa and Brad were great, we had a small... More

We regularly stay in this resort when we go to Hervey Bay. It is a small resort, lovely pool and decent BBQ facilities. The apartments are nice and have everything you need. The Indian restaurant on the ground floor serves great food and the smells from the kitchen torture you (nicely) from early afternoon. The views over the ocean are... More

My husband and I recently stayed here for ten days. We chose a one bedroom unit which was located on the second floor with a lovely view straight across the road to the beach. The unit was complete with all mod cons and air conditioning and fans and the bed was extremely comfortable. We couldn't have asked for anything more... More

The lift was a bonus. The service was friendly and helpful, including the fellows in the restaurant below.......enjoy your breakfast there. Has everything you need for... More

We spent a week here in a third floor apartment with great views out to the bay. Location was fantastic we could walk to cafes, shops, restaurants and the beach was across the road. The apartment was clean and modern, there was underground parking and great pool. Great place to stay will definitely stay again.

We have stayed here a couple of times now and just love it! Great location, size and friendly staff. Our son loves the pool and the fact can cross the road to the water. Only minutes away from entertainment, eating venues, shopping..you name it! We will be back again soon !

We recently stayed here for 6 nights in a ground floor 1 B/R unit with the loveliest views straight across from us - it was very relaxing just sitting watching the water (if we didn't feel very energetic). Easy walking distance to cafes/restaurants and a little further to the shops makes this an ideal place for a holiday/short break -... More
