Stayed 5 days, enjoyed every minute. Good size rooms, fantastic views, very comfortable beds. Good facilities. Well located for cafe's/restaurants and leisurely beach walks, bit of a walk to the main shops, if shopping's your thing. Friendly staff, always helpful, (Thanks, Christine.) Will be very happy to have a return visit.

We stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment. We had booked a month before but were allocated an apartment on the south side of the building. It had a good view facing southeast but in winter it was too cold to sit on the balcony. The people at the resort were very friendly and helpful. The block is across the road... More

Hello, Thank you for your feedback regarding your stay, we are glad you generally enjoyed Shearwater Resort. The rooms on the southern side of the resort don't get the same winter sun as the opposite side as the resort was oriented towards the Ocean for the views.

Stayed 13 very relaxing nights at Shearwater in June. When booking 3 weeks prior, Carlene was very helpful with assisting in securing a top floor 1 bedroom apartment at a very reasonable rate.

We stayed here for 3 nights. The room we had was very clean. The resort was across the road from Kings Beach. The restaurants down stairs were really good to eat from. The managers of the resort were all friendly people & nothing a was too much of a problem for them. Would definitely stay there agaon
