About Mindy & Angus Mc Douall

Our family found Sandy Beach in 2004 and soon there after decided to build a beach house that we could access from our home in Armidale.

We have enjoyed the peace and quite of Sandy for the past 14 years and hope to encourage others to come and see what this little haven is all about.

Why Mindy & Angus Mc Douall chose Sandy Beach

Shells on Sandy is set up so you have a home away from home.

We have made every attempt to equip the house fully so that you dont get any surprises when you travel.

We make ever attempt to keep the house in tip top shape and I think that after reading our reviews you will see that most people would agree.

Fantastic Stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 6 nights over Easter 2016. This house was set out really well for our family. which included 4 adults and 3 children. Everything you would need was there to be used, from baby items to spare towels, etc. Beautifully clean and presented so well. A few min walk to beach and park. Lovely and quiet area.

Fabulous Property!

  • 5 of 5

We recently visited Shells on Sandy Beach for a week and had the most amazing time. The house was absolutely beautiful and very well appointed. The owners have thought of everything!

The property is perfectly placed a very short walk to the beach which although not patrolled, was quite safe and well protected. We thoroughly enjoyed both morning and afternoon swimming. Many an afternoon was spent on the deck enjoying the sun and the view.

My favourite thing about this property was going to sleep listening to the ocean every night!

I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking to stay in the area. It is really quite large and comfortably fit our 2 families. The booking, payment and checking in and out process was simple and smooth.

Thanks for allowing us to stay. We will most definitely be back.

Classy, Comfortable, Luxury

  • 5 of 5

Shells on Sandy was a clean, comfortable, spacious, well appointed holiday retreat that was also very much needed and appreciated by us. The owners have gone to considerable lengths to think of everything one might need - or 6 or 7 might need.

Sandy Beach
Car: necessary
Other Activities:


The Woolgoolga area has numerous attactions whilst also allowing families to relax and get away from the hustle and bustle of larger centres.

The local shop in Sand Beach "The Sunkin Chip" is a jem of a place and is only three doors aay from the house.

It makes excellent coffee and has a range of take away food.

Everyone will enjoy the easy access to the beach and the miles of sand that allows you to take strols in eaither direction.

Sandy Beach is a jewel that sneaks under the radar and is never busy like some of the other north coast locations.
