Great location and energy

  • 5 of 5

A great way to break up the trip from Sydney to Noosa. Perfectly located close to beach and village. Lovely energy and relaxing vibe. The dogs also enjoyed stretching their legs on the beach after long day in the car.

Very disappointing. Does not match write up. Small, tired old motel suite tarted up with a Hollywood theme. Street noise from 6,00am, Door adjoining next rooms leaked sound - disconcerting! Shared kitchen with cockroaches. Floor coverings (shag pile rugs) tired. Courtyard a feature but adjacent to busy road. Great location near eateries, pub and club. Spoiled our anniversary weekend.Stayz - please verify descriptions and quality before advertising.

comfortable stay

  • 4 of 5

First time at Shellies but will definitely return. It is very comfortable. There is everything you need (except a small lamp in the sitting room, as I hate sitting with the overhead light glaring down), plus the location is great with all the restaurants in Sawtell just a short block away.
