This property provided everything 3 ladies getting together to meet up needed. 3 bed and 2 bath with balcony, swimming pool and easy parking. Walking distance to shops etc. Clean and kitchen fitted out really well. We are looking forward to booking our next get together and staying there.

very nicely appointed

  • 5 of 5

Made for a very comfortable stay in our favourite holiday place. Our only complaint is that the pictures of the bay on the actual "Seashells" website should be removed, or specified as "general views of the bay" as they are not from the property as we expected them to be. The ONLY reason we book a property is to get these magic views and ALAS they were not to be !!

Excellent family accommodation

  • 5 of 5

My family and i stayed at seashells over the Labour Day long weekend and i really couldn't fault the apartment. We had 3 spacious rooms with and ensuite in the main bedroom, fully equipped kitchen, laundry and a spacious lounge area. Each room also had a balcony.

The apartment also had a swimming pool and a clean and tidy BBQ area the family can utilize. We were on the first floor a d chose to park on the street so it was very easy for us to unload.

The apartment complex is also very close tk the town centre, beaches, restaurants and the communion hospital is also very close.

Janet was wonderful very accommodating and informative leading up to the stay.

We purchaed a linen package which i highly recommend as it was just easier.

I will definately stay here again and recommend anyone wishing to stay at Nelson Bay to stay here

Excellent stay & facilities :)

  • 5 of 5

My sister Emilia and I had our very own room each! I loved the pool, the bathtub, my own balcony outside my room; adjoining my baby sis's room, the BBQ area, and we were a walk across the road from the beach. We'll definately be coming back!
