Amazing location and generous hospitality!

  • 4 of 5

This property is in such a magical location. The property itself isn't brand new and there are a few insignificant tid bits that come with that. But they had zero negative impact on my time there and I will definitely be booking in at Shellie's again!

2nd to none location but needs work

  • 3 of 5

Perfect location! Walk out the back door and 20 steps along the bush path and you're standing on Sawtell Beach. Out the front door and a 5 minute walk to the wonderful range of cafes and restaurants.

Unfortunately, Shellies Little house is looking worse for wear. The rain showers and humidity didn't help but it certainly needs work. The house was very stuffy and mouldy and the lack of flyscreens meant that even when the sun was shining, you couldn't open the windows due to mozzies. The back sliding door was difficult to open and close and the aircon remote didn't display mode. Kitchen cupboards had out of date food and smelled musty. Mould on bedroom curtains, spider webs in corners and the ants, even though not into food or biting, meant you had to sweep up twice or three times a day.

Shellie, we loved your artistic taste, your rustic concept and your location BUT rustic is meant to be simple and rural, not musty, worn and needing a renovation. For the high $ price which was nearly the same as brand new apartment up the road, you expect

Owner's Response: Thanks for the feedback Lee. All taken care of, except for the tiny dune ants about which nothing can be done because they are part of the beach landscape, and come with living so close to the beautiful Sawtell beach. We offer a simple, non poisoned, BEACH house backing on to the beautiful Aussie beach dunes, and simply say we are not 50 shades of grey marble, or like a brand new apartment. But thanks.

Great dog-friendly location

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Shellies. The cabin was very comfortable, and had everything we needed. Great location, right on the beach, dog-friendly, and an easy walking distance to all the shops and restaurants. I'm sure we'll be back :)

Great location but property not as advertised

  • 2 of 5

The property photos are not all current. The bathroom and kitchen are showing their age, but that would not be a huge problem except for the level of cleanliness which was lacking. Mould on shower ceiling. Soap scum in shower on floor tiles. Surfaces with dust and spider webs in corners at low levels easily accessible by a vacuum cleaner. The timber floor in kitchen,lounge area has been removed and floor painted. Floor showing marks, stains and spots where the paint has lifted. Food stuffs in pantry and fridge have been left by previous occupants. The majority of this has been used,opened and left there.A lot of out of date items. I would not be willing to use these items from a food standard perspective. 3 x 20 year olds stayed with me who are fit and expressed their concern over the ladder access to second bedroom. For the money you pay, I expected a better kept and maintained property.

Owner's Response: Dear Tanya. Thank you for your detailed review. We have deleted 3 of the 18 photos that were slightly different from today's decor, and the photos are real, not photo-shopped, of our beach-side Beach House. We do not claim to be 50shades of grey marble. We are addressing the tiny ant damage on the bathroom ceiling..not mould, just one of the "joys" of beachside living, and have asked our cleaners to be more vigilant throughout. ALL condiments etc in the pantry have been removed as we do not wish to offend and guests will need to bring their own from now on. I'm sure I rang you to discuss your 3x 20 year olds about the mezzanine floor and you assured me they'd be fine. We try hard to give our guests a relaxing and tranquil stay and we sincerely hope you find somewhere else more suitable next time you visit Sawtell.
