The studios have a small kitchenette, spacious separate bathroom with a spa bath, very comfortable beds & a balcony with the most amazing views! Shearwater is within walking distance of surf & calm beaches.... More

We arrived on Saturday 4th October and stayed for two nights with our 2 kids for the Caloundra Music Festival, as this resort is located right in the middle of the entire area. This resort is perfect for families staying that want everything within walking distance. All the rooms are facing the ocean, so our room had amazing views. You've... More

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment which really was a 1 bedroom and a studio joined together. We were on the 3rd floor and the view was fantastic. The hotel/apartments are just across from the beach and the play area for kids at Kings Beach. We loved the rock pools across the road too! Having the restaurants downstairs was... More
