Great overall experience at Shelly Beach Resort

Posted Nov 20, 2015
Mark was an amazing host, very friendly, going out of his way to give us advice and tips. The booking included two bedrooms, a kitchen, a bathroom as well as a living room. Amenities included everything we needed (free wi-fi). Heated pool and jacuzzi was a bonus. They even have a game room with ping-pong, billiards, etc. A short walk to the beach and a cheap cab/uber ride away from all the attractions.

Close to beautiful Shelly Beach

Posted Oct 31, 2015
Pros: Location, comfort, side of rooms, washer and dryer in the unit, covered parking.
Cons: This unit clearly had a cleaning and maintenance problem but nothing that couldn't be easily fixed. We worked around it.
Location: Shelly Beach, rain forest tour, cafe at the rain forest, natural wildlife, grocery stores and convenient shopping, beautiful ocean front drive, hiking
We really enjoyed our stay. The layout of the place is interesting, built on an angle, spiral staircase kind of like living in a piece of art. Very comfortable. There's a pool, jacuzzi and tennis court on site with the promise of a glimpse of koala's (we did not see them). Within walking distance of beautiful Shelly Beach and a Rainforest tour/cafe. We were quite comfortable. There were a few things that needed improvement. Dishwasher and washer leaked a bit and the floor really needed moping (we wore socks to keep our feet clean), but most else appeared clean and neat, fresh sheets and linens. Kitchen was very well equipped, though the broiler pan was dirty with fresh foil stretched over the grease(can't explain that one). We cooked most nights. Cups needed replacing (tea stains). However, the tradeoff was quite good. There's actually individual covered parking. Very handy as hail was predicted. We would stay again. Management was extremely nice and helpful. Port Macquarie is a lovely city with good shopping and wonderful restaurants.

Great spot in Port Macquarie

Posted Oct 11, 2015 on Wotif
Pros: Very well proportioned two bed self contained unit with everything you could need. Heated pool and spa, games room and parking. Excellent facilities
Cons: My only thought is a larger TV.
Location: You are still only 8 minutes out of the center of Port, but right next to some of the best beaches around. It is a peaceful and relaxing location.
Great spot in Port, just south of the main town and right next to a few of the best beaches. This is a lovely place to stay for a stopover or longer stay.

Fantastic, family friendly place to stay

Posted Oct 11, 2015 on Lastminute
Pros: Family-friendly, spacious, great facilities, friendly staff
Location: Handy location to the beach and all of Port Macquarie's other attractions
We booked about half an hour before we arrived, as it was all that was available for our sized family (2 adults, 3 kids) so we just took what we could get. As soon as we arrived (straight after booking online), they had already processed our booking and had our unit ready for us. The staff were very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. The apartment was fantastic for our family and had everything we needed. We didn't have time to spend using the other facilities at the resort (visiting a dying family member in town), but they all looked fantastic and we will definitely recommend it to other families and if we need accommodation in the future, it will be our first option!

Good hotel close to the beach

Posted Oct 9, 2015 on Wotif
Very neat duplex, we were very close to the pool and entertainment room. Very close to the beach. Had a minor disappointment of fish odour in the kitchen, admin not on grounds for availability very odd hours, in saying this well arranged for late arrivals.
