The couple who run this place are awesome, from the first friendly greeting to help & advice on all things local, excellent customer service. Our 2 bedroom apartment was great nicely decorated with a HUGE comfortable master bed. This is located right across from the beach. We will come back for sure

We found the hosts friendly and approachable, they arranged holiday activities including whale watching trip and provided us with dining recommendations. Resort was very clean and kept tidy with a well maintained pool. Excellent value for money with good views of the ocean. I taught my sons how...

Renata on Reception could not have been more helpful when we turned up looking for an apartment for 2 nights. The 3rd floor apartment was spotlessly clean and very well equipped, with a comfortable bed and laundry facilities. The balcony affords good views across to the Esplanade and the beach. Renata also went out of her way to suggest and...

Shelly Bay Resort provided every comfort we needed to enjoy our 7 night stay. We complimented the Cleaners on the spotless, well equipped unit. The resort grounds were also well maintained.

Lovely staff welcomed us. Views to the beach and very clean rooms at a reasonable price. The units are self contained and everything is there. The beach is just across the road and there is plenty one can walk to. The resort has plenty of information on what one can do

Right on the beachfront on the Esplanade, this resort has stunning views, beautiful beach across the road and is within walking distance of restaurants and shops. The units are well equipped to cook and the pool is lovely. Andrew and Donna go to great trouble to make sure their guests are happy. I will definately stay there again.
