Great apartment to enjoy our holiday and the area. We travelled to the Great Barrier Reef which was one of my life time aims. Fabulous treat and a wonderful way of getting over jet lag from England to Australia travel.

Greeted on arrival by Andrew, he couldn't have been more helpful. The apartments however were really disappointing. Only one bathroom, no dishwasher and the biggest disappointment was the views. No matter what apartment all you're going to see is tarmac and trees with glimpses of water through the trees. Had an issue with housekeeping which was quickly attended to, without...

We stayed here in November to visit Fraser Island and surround area. It was a great place to stay overlooking the beach front. Very comfortable bed, plenty of hot water and all the facilities needed for a comfortable stay. The staff were helpful and there are plenty of restaurants within walking distance.

Good location with a few restaurants within walking distance or a short drive to many more shops and the pier. The resort has a nice pool and the beach is directly across the road. Our room was large, two air conditioners, a nice balcony and washing machine / dryer facilities. Would definitely stay here again.

Shelly Bay Resort isn't a high rise but don't think that's a down fall. We spent 3 days here and loved it !! The room is so clean, fresh and has everything you need for a short or long stay. We were on the third floor ( highest ) & we still had a great view of the beach/ocean. The...

Every aspect of the stay was awesome. All the small details were great, on top of the large parts which were also great. We loved our entire stay, from the fantastic unit itself, to the quality food we consumed in record amounts, to the fantastic beach and surrounds, to the facitlies (tennis court and awesome pool) of this resort, and...

We stayed for 3 nights from 24 December. Renata and Andrew were warm and welcoming upon our arrival. Gave us an early check in...thank you. The room was very comfortable with beautiful water views from the balcony...heavenly. Just a small suggestion..perhaps the ceiling fans, bathroom taps and tv could be updated, otherwise, fabulous. Great stay.

Booked family members here for Christmas. Even though it was booked through Booking.com, Renata made immediate contact to confirm details of our booking. We had some special needs and her assistance ensured that our stay was hassle free. We loved the rooms, clean and with a great view and the tropical feel of the resort in general. Would definitely recommend...

Stayed here for business recently and I was so impressed. I was met with the most important thing when constantly travelling for work - a warm and genuine welcome! Nothing was too much trouble, Renata clearly explained everything to me and had my tax receipt ready and waiting for me as requested on my booking. She gave me a card...
