We chose Shelly beach because it was dog friendly and for it's location, but we didn't expect such homely, friendly accommodation suitable for overnight or longer stays. We are a family with young kids and usually stay in a caravan park but our 3 night stay at Shelly Beach was both comfortable and memorable. The 2 sisters who run the place are so relaxed and friendly and make you feel part of the family. The rooms tick all the boxes for the essentials: cleanliness, comfortable beds, air conditioning, working appliances and the best showers I've had in a long time. The rooms also come with kitchenettes making self catering an option but they also offer a large outdoor "camp kitchen" with gas BBQ, fridge and power. We had our breakfasts out there every day and cooked pancakes on the electric frypans supplied, bacon and eggs on the Barbie and sat relaxing on the chaise lounge in the sunshine.Our dog was also very happy being permitted to sleep in our unit with us and run around the expansive grounds. I believe they only allow 2 dogs at a time, so it is not over run by dogs either and you would never even know they accept them as the place is all so immaculately clean. The quirky touches, flowers and personal knick knacks around the place only add to the appeal. This is not 5 star, but the best Motel I've Ever been to!
