Perfectly comfortable and clean, situated on the main drag with parking at the rear. Accommodation could do with an upgrade and Foxtel. Walking distance to beach, bars and local restaurants. Visit was for golfing weekend and accommodation is twenty minutes drive from most courses.

We are already planning a return trip in the near future and plan on staying here again! Only suggestion I would make is if you are not from the area...

The location is good, the entrance is weird and the flight of steps a bit inconvenient when you have luggage. The apartments have been build on the cheap side but are functional with everything you need. However, you can hear your neighbors movements and voices. The rules & regulations are over the top especially asking you to carry your garbage...

From the apartment it is a short walk to the IGA supermarket, bottleshops and many restaurants. The apartment was large and clean. Negative - To get to the...

The ocassion was a trip to swim with the dolphins - my oldest sons 21st present. Shells, located in central Sorrento, was an ideal location, and equally important, was available for rental, for periods of less than 7 days over the peak summer period. The appartment (no 2) was clean and tidy. The kitchen was well appointed and had all...

These apartments are located right in town. Access to all shops,restaurants and 20 min drive from the peninsular hot springs. They are large apartments with all the amenities you need. Suite family,couples or groups. Very clean and tidy. However saying that the over powering smell of bleach was a disappointment as it was difficult to handle and breath. We had...

Booked it online through Wotif which was fine, we paid too much for it but it was a last minute weekend away.
