Last weekend my wife, daughtrer and I stayed at the WhiteCrest Luxury Apartments in Hervey Bay (HB). It's deservedly rated as 4.5 stars. Absolutely superb place to stay.
HB is on the Frazer Coast, about 30km east from Maryborough. HB is the gateway to Frazer Island which is the largest sand island in the world and supplies the beautiful sands to Hawaii's Waikiki beach. Frazer Island is a must to see, even if you've only one day. Just do a bus tour. It's also four wheel drive heaven so if you get the chance to take a 4WD to the island, you'll have a fantastic time.
The first thing we noticed on arrival was the spotlessy clean condition of the whole property. We hoped the rest of the resort was the same and we were not disappointed. The room and everywhere was spotless, clean, fresh and appealing.
We were greeted by the smiling Host/Manager, Rob Cheek. Rob is a real gentleman who was very welcoming, nothing was too much trouble and he made us feel important from the get go. Rob went out of his way to may our entire stay very enjoyable, relaxing and memorable.
WhiteCrest has one, two or three bedroom self-contained, luxurious apartments which are superbly comfortable. All apartments are beautifully appointed, have extremely comfortable and clean beds and have full modern kitchen and dining facilities. The Apartments are close to shops, restaurants and the sailing and kayaking hut. Just around the corner is a superb Thai Restaurant or the best Fish & Chips take-away in town.
WhiteCrest is right across the road from the beach if you like a walk along a beautiful beach. You can also go for a swim. The water temrparature in the bay was only 26 degrees Celcius. But we tolerated that nonetheless..ha ha.... Travellers should note that at this time of the year there are usually no stingers (jellyfishj, blue bottles etc) in the water but check with Rob before you swim in the Bay. Good news is that you can swim all year round in Whitecrest's own sparkling swimming pool. The resort also has a small snooker table and games in the games room.
WhiteCrest provides basement, undercover secured parking with a lift directly to your floor
On Sundays, there is a beachfront market just 200 metres easy flat walk.
Rob can also organise tours to Frazer Island at the same rate as a direct booking with a tour operator in Hervey Bay or Maryborough. He also has bicycles for hire or you can hire a small catamaran and go sailing.
All in all, Whitecrest is a fabulous place to stay, nice and central and lives up to its name of luxury apartments. Top marks.
