Shaw on Shore is located on Pacific Parade right opposite the swimming nets of Horseshoe Bay. Below the complex is a small supermarket Foodworks and a restaurant. We had been advised to stay at Horseshoe Bay due to its North facing location plus its well maintained beach with a lifeguard. The accommodation is rated as luxury, and this may be the case for Magnetic Island but it is really a 3 star Holiday Unit. The apartments (we stayed in a two bedroom unit with access only to the main bedroom) are large with a separate bathroom and laundry. All modern conveniences with flat screen TV's in the lounge and main bedroom. Decor is very dated with White Cane Furniture and sad paintings. They are obviously trying to update the floors, but it is a slow process with different tiles in each room and stacked outside in the breezeway - not an attractive greeting. Stairwells were dirty and dusty and not well maintained. Our apartment appeared clean with crisp sheets, but on closer inspection it was obvious that a good clean was needed. Infact the whole complex needed a good spring clean and declutter. Loved the concept of supporting the McGrath Foundation with their Pink Towels. Overall we had an enjoyable stay, mainly due to its great location to all the Pacific Parade cafe's/restaurants. If you dont expect too much I would recommend this block based on its location and size of apartments.
