“Fabulous apartments with fabulous views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013 via mobile

We ended up staying here when our original accommodation fell through at short notice over Christmas/New year period. The management were great in providing a room for a couple of nights. The location was fabulous with great views and the apartments couldn't really be faulted. The only downside was that there is a strep hill climb to the rooms and no lifts to upper floors, so be prepared to carry your bags. If you have any mobility problems or want to be right in the middle of the action, then this isn't the place for you, but otherwise I would recommend whole heartedly.

Stayed December 2012

We stayed for 3 nights and wished we stayed longer. The room was huge and had everything we needed. the blaconey was a great place to eat breakfast in the morning. The pools were great for relaxing. The bed was comfortable and the kitchen was great. It is in a beautiful location by the water and it is a nice walk to the town. It is easy to get to the marina to go snorkelling. The hotel is great for families or couples. We would def go back and stay here again. The restaurant was closed every day that we were there so not sure if the food is good.

Very Comfortable, quiet and out of the way from Airlies Beach itself. However, it is conveniently close enough to walk to Airlies. Perfect location if you are doing Reef trips as it is only a 5 minute walk via the boardwalk to Abel Point Marina. Great views over the Marina itself. John was very helpful and we will definitely be back.

Stayed at Shingley Beach for a few days whilst travelling in Queensland. Quiet location and our studio apartment was spacious and had excellent views of the marina - one minor negative was the lack of a fan in the shower room. Walking into Airlie Beach along the boardwalk kept us fit though we used taxis at night as the boardwalk is poorly lit, the area around the complex isn't on a bus route and there is no footpath along the main road.
The restaurant wasn't open during our stay though there are plenty of options in Airlie Beach itself if you don't mind the walk or have transport available.
The staff at the complex were very pleasant and helpful and Shingley Beach is a pleasant place to spend a few days though would recommend having a car if you want to explore the area.

Stayed at Shingley about half a dozen times now: always like the rooms, big and spacious, and great views. Shingley is tucked away from the noise and bustle of Airlie, but still close with the great boardwalk. Food was very good this time. Always good value.

Room Tip: 2nd floor rooms have best views.

Celebrated daughters wedding here on 20th October 2012. Toni was very helpful with the reception. Nothing was too much trouble. The wedding meal was delicious. Well done chef!!. Everyone of the guests I spoke with said the same thing. Just awesome! A huge thank you to all staff at Shingley Beach. Accommodation was best value too. We had two 3 bed apartments next door to each other., and friends the room along . Ideal for family get togethers. The view was just stunning. The host John was friendly too. We will return.

Room Tip: Back room apartments for wonderful views.

Great apartment, tucked away from the main street of Airlie but great for a base if going on any reef tours. Great views of Abel Point marina, nice just watching the boats come and go. Easy boardwalk stroll into town or Cannonvale. Pools/BBQ area clean and user friendly. Quiet spot but not far from anything, nice park out front. Service was prompt and there if needed, but we were happily left alone. Apartments have everything you need, comfy beds, great for family of 4. Would stay here again, might try the 2 level 3 brm apartment for the best views ever!
