Family of four, stayed in 2 bedroom unit. It was a small, narrow shaped unit and the 2nd bedroom very small for two people. The location is great- close to the beach, park and restaurants. There's a small balcony with a view of the ocean. It's all very clean and well kept. We'd stay again for the convenience and quiet... More

Thank you for your review. The location is definately popular especially with the views out to the shipping channel. Most of our 2 bedroom apartments are wider than the one you occupied. Please request a different style and we will do our best to accommodate for your next visit. More

We stayed two weeks over Christmas in a two-bedroom one-bath apartment. Positives: Location in Caloundra can't be beat, and the view from the small balcony is impressive. We left an item in our apartment, and the managers very helpfully returned it by mail to us. Negatives: wi-fi only worked intermittently and then slowly. It's "free" - I guess you get... More

Fabulous with primary-school aged children & younger. Near park to play, across road from beach & surf flags, excellent pool. Clean, good kitchen facilities - very expensive local milk bar (must get groceries from town). Quiet at night. Wonderful family holiday.

We stayed here for 12 days Oct/Nov 2013 and would happily go back. We chose Shearwater primarily for it's location and we were not disappointed. The beach with lifeguard area, the outdoor seaside pool complex and multiple shaded playgrounds are all very close by - it is the ideal location for a family with young children. Easy drive from Brisbane... More

We stayed here for a pre Christmas weekend away with our toddler in a two bedroom apartment. The apartment is nice and clean, well equipped and spacious in the living area. The beds are comfortable, I like that it has a security safe in each apartment, and they provide a set of non-breakable dinnerware for the kid. It is just... More

Returned to Shearwater in November for a great stay. The location is the best in Kings Beach Caloundra and the resort is just across the road from the beach. The units are very clean and well equipped with a fully functioning kitchen. The beds have recently been replaced and very comfortable. If you are looking for a relaxing stay close... More

We arrived without a booking on a Sunday afternoon and the service was terrific. This is a very pleasant resort style hotel. The attractive rooms have a well equipped kitchen and lounge as well as terrific ocean views from the balcony, just across from the beach. The balcony is big enough for four. The manager was very helpful and accommodating,... More
