Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is the best accommodation my wife and I have ever stayed at surpassing all expectations and superior to the 5 star hotel that we stayed at in Cairns. The view from the apartments are second to none and the location of the apartment is close to the water and isolated so the only noise was the sound of waves hitting the shore and birds cheeping. There are only three apartments in the complex so the noise from other guests was extremely minimal to the point that it was non existent. The self contained apartment suited our needs and we were able to cook our own fresh meals when we wanted to and the coffee machine was easy to operate with the owners supplying fresh quality coffee beans when needed (we are big coffee drinkers). The owners were very helpful in advising us on what tours were available and booked a tour for us. We will be advising family and friends to stay at Bay-bliss Apartments and will definitely be coming back again.

I spent 2 nights at Baybliss and my every need was catered for. The owners couldn't have been more helpful, the spot was quiet and secluded and my room very clean with excellent views and a view of the pool / sea. Would highly recommend for a lone traveler and is easy to get to and from places such as Airlee beach for excursions via taxi or bus.

We spent 2 weeks at Baybliss Apartments and it was simply a dream!
There are only three self contained apartments with balconies, which are spacious, clean, fresh and displayed a breathtaking view over the harbour and infinity pool!
There was also a coffee machine with supplied coffee and free Wi-Fi in the room.
The owners Tess and Bernd were extremly friendly and very helpful.
We recommend Baybliss Apartments, cause we simply loved it and we will definitely come back again.
Thanks to Tess and Bernd for their hospitality.

We stayed here for our 30th Anniversary and it was so awesome we decided to return for our 35th - last May....of course Covid-19 hit the world and NZ closed the borders and our flights were cancelled. We notified the owners that we couldn't get there, they immediately charged our credit card for the full amount! Despite numerous emails and effectively begging for some compassion, they refused to refund us, stating that we were preventing anyone else booking so had to pay! (the whole world was in lockdown so I dont know who they were expecting!), eventually they reluctantly agreed to allow us a 12 month credit. That expired last month and we still cant leave the country, so we wrote again asking for at least a partial refund. They didnt even give us the courtesy of a reply despite 3 emails being sent over 2 weeks. I guess they've taken our money and anyone elses who booked last year, and run! Don't touch them with a barge pole people.

Firstly the positives - the location is secluded, quiet, peaceful, and the view lovely. The hobs and coffee maker (once you have found out how they work) were excellent, and plenty of room in the fridge freezer. There are excellent free communal washing and ironing facilities, and a lovely pool.

As for the not-so-goods, depending on your priorities...
There is no Reception, and instructions were sent only just before check in, so bear this in mind if you are travelling and have no access to WiFi.
The WiFi at the apartment was virtually non-existent the day we arrived. We queried it with the owners but received no reply. For our second two days it improved to just about usable, but still dropped out. Given that you are in such an isolated spot, again this is not ideal.
If you like very soft beds, you will love it. (definitely not if you like firm).
The floor was not clean (evidenced by the state of the soles of our feet after a shower), which was very disappointing in a place and climate you just want to walk around in in bare feet.
The location as mentioned is secluded, and there is absolutely nothing at Shute Harbour - not even a beach. Unfortunately due to the orientation, the pool and your balcony will only get sun in the morning, although this does lend to beautiful evening light over the bay. Although the bus service appeared to be regular, I would not want to stay here without a car. We may have been unlucky given previous reviews, but did not meet the owners, who we understand own a holiday letting company, nor were they very thorough with our queries.
Nb. We only understood on arrival, despite asking, that the basic studios are on the lower level (but still above the pool) and the bigger ones on top.

Pros - nice views, big shower and near new fan with remote and Netflix

Cons - isolated, noisy air-conditioner, noisy fridge, loud foot steps from the residents in the above unit, mattress very uncomfortable and cockroaches (5 exactly), 2 of which were found crawling across us in the middle of the night.

If you want to be close to cafes or restaurants or for that matter even a corner store, you probably should not stay at this location, as you a quite isolated and you definitely need a car. There is no off street parking and it is quite dark when you return back to the unit at night time. There was no ability to leave the balcony screen door open for bay breezes, as you could not lock it, so lucky the fan worked, as the air-conditioner was so noisy we were not able to sleep with it going.

Overall a very disappointing experience.

I don't like giving bad reviews, but I have owned holiday rental properties and if you want people to come back you have to make sure that the rental property is up to the standard expected. This unit needs an update and the appliances need to be modernised.

The place was a short drive to Airlie Beach, we loved the room that had a great view of the water and the pool. If your looking for a quiet stay and not into nightclubs, this was a place to go. Unfortunately had to leave earlier than intended cause of Cyclone warning. Luckily flights were easily changed. All in all it was a beautiful home away from home.

We stayed at the Baybliss Apartments for 3 nights in December. The owners could not have been more helpful, and the view from the room was spectacular. It was only a very short walk to the harbour where you can catch the ferries, and also the bus runs into Airlie Beach every half hour or so. We had an amazing seaplane trip to the Great Barrier Reef from Whitsunday Air, and the airport they run from is only about 5 minutes away on the bus. The bus dropped us right outside and it's about half way between Shute Harbour and Airlie.
It's worth noting that there aren't any shops or restaurants (apart from the cafe at the ferry terminal) in Shute Harbour, and the last bus to Airlie Beach leaves at 6:40pm, but a taxi was only about $25 if you want to stay in town for the evening.
We can highly recommend staying here for a wonderful and tranquil experience. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay and for all your help. Hopefully we will return one day. Chris and Beks
