Great apartments for a very relaxing stay. Beautiful views of Mt Coolum and only a short stroll to the beach. Stunning rooftop pool with beautiful views of the beach and Mt Coolum. Apartments are well equipped and management was very helpful at all times. Great to enjoy a peaceful dog friendly beach. We would definitely stay here again

Rooms were spacious and clean with all amenities provided. Pretty much a home away from home with a dream view in a dream like town. So peaceful, no traffic, no buses or trucks or trains.

Stayed here for week. Spacious, modern, well equipped, clean with a great view of Mt Coolum from the balcony. Very near the coastal boardwalk path and the beach. Not too far from Coolum Beach by car. Doug, the manager, is very friendly and always ready to help. Would recommend this place.

Literally a home away from home. Spacious, modern, private & clean. We didn't want to leave. Would definitely recommend the two bedroom apartment with the private rooftop & jacuzzi. Beds were so comfortable & kitchens equipped with everything you'd need.

We stayed with a few friends and rented two apartments for nights over a weekend. It was fully booked as holiday season had started but we still loved the place. It's located in the most beautiful part of Marcoola and gives the direct access to beach, park, barbecues and all with absolute peace and quiet. Don't stay anywhere in Marcoola... More

New management since my last visit, makes a real difference. No issues with check in/out and the rooms very clean and tidy. The pool on the roof is great, excellent views out onto the sea. Would come again

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
White Shells Luxury Apartments are located on Queensland's Sunshine Coast commanding an enviable beachfront position in the idyllic Town Of Seaside at Marcoola Beach. A prestigious address of only 48 luxury apartments over four levels offering a complete guest experience. Our apartments have 2 or 3 bedrooms all in similar styling, colour schemes and interior design. Our Podium apartments have private pools and our Penthouse apartments have private rooftop terraces and spas with stunning views across the Pacific Ocean that will delight your senses during the day and at sunrise and sunset. Each of the two buildings has its own spectacular roof top terrace with a large heated pool, two spas and ocean and Mount Coolum views for all guests to enjoy. Located directly beachside offering uncrowded white sandy beaches, blue skies and crystal clear waters for as far as the eye can see. Also on the doorstep is Mount Coolum, an indigenous rock second only in size to Uluru (Ayers Rock) offering spectacular views from our rooftop terraces and most apartments. Boardwalks and bicycle trails weave in and out of the dunes, while virtually untouched beauty stretches out just metres from you. A haven of tranquillity, which whilst you will feel you're hundreds of kilometres from anywhere, you are always within easy reach of a bustling urban lifestyle and the Sunshine Coast Airport is only 5kms away, for easy access from a number of Australian cities. ... more   less
