We got an apartment on the 4th floor, which is on the top of the building. To our surprise, it also has access to its own rooftop area, with a BBQ. We had a lovely dinner on the BBQ with great views of the mountains. Our friends had a 3rd floor apartment facing the beach and the view from their... More

Nice unit in lovely spot. Great bike riding down to pelican waters. The unit was very good. Excellent condition and everything worked. Nice larger TV. Nice views out to Caloundra bar. We were there on colder windy week but imagine in summer swimming would be good in river across road. Close to Caloundra central and coffee shops and takeaway food.... More

This property is not what is advertised. It is pretty run down and the office is always unattended. If you need something its hard to get in touch with management. The pool was empty and if there is a heated pool as on the website, billboard etc I didn't find it. The units are quite old however the layout is... More

Booked unit on top level and was quoted accordingly. Arrived and was told the unit we booked had some things needing to be repaired so they upgraded up to level 2, 2 levels below! We booked the top level unit for a reason we were never notified it was not available until we arrived and it was too late. The... More

What a fabulous place Sandy Shores is, from the friendly welcome at reception, to the clean, fresh apartments and stunning ocean views. We stayed a couple of nights while attending the Abbey Medieval Festival, and ended up having car issues which meant a day of racq coming and going from the carpark, and would have made for a late trip...

A great self contained unit on the passage with great views over the water. Friendly and helpful staff. All rooms have views. Good value. From here it was 15 minutes walk to the city centre and ten to great eat options including fresh seafood.

Don't be misled, this apartment is surely not 4 stars, and definitely not luxurious. I booked it primarily for the so called water views which were nothing but water glimpses from a small side balcony. The roof deck above was absolutely useless with no BBQ, old rusty furniture and no shade whatsoever which made our apartment below unbearably hot. No... More

Lovely place, spacious apartment. Good proximity to beach & town centre. Very secure car parking. Good value for money. The female manager went the extra mile (literally)& very kindly showed us the correct road to get on the right road north.
