Five 3 Five - The Beachside Barracks
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 August 2014

Perfect location, awesome apartment... a home away from home there is nothing that was not thought of. The host Rayesh was amazing...nothing was too much trouble, loved the tour in the vintage car as soon as we arrived and then the next day Rayesh even dropped my mum at the wedding in his other vintage car.

Perfect for wedding parties or families attending weddings. Could not fault it a holiday we will always remember .. hope to be back one day soon!

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms, great views and lovely deck!

We travelled to Hervey Bay for a wedding. The Barracks was the perfect place to stay, opposite the beach and walking distance to cafes and restaurants. The owner is so charming and accommodating. Everything you need.. our apartment was immaculate. Lovely Balinese style decor and full use of communal bikes, canoes, free wifi, huge tv. A home away from home.

We stayed at the Beachside cottage which is run by the same crowd - and just down the rd from the Barracks. Its a great spot, owner lives behind the cottage and is very hospitable and welcoming. Even gave us freshly laid egss! Place was beautifully decorated with everything you need for a great stay. Spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Lovely to have the spa to use, and also to be able to get bikes/kayaks etc from just up the road. All that plus free wifi and cable tv made it a real hit for the kids. Great location too - just over the road from the beach and a short wal to the shops and to the marina as well. Would definitely return.

Room Tip: Cottage is great, however barrack apartments also looked nice

We recently returned to '535' (our second year) and brought along our friends this time for another fabulous stay. We especially love Apartment 1 - it's unique décor, layout and privacy is definitely our pick! The upstairs deck is also great to entertain and chill out with friends. The kids had heaps of fun using the bikes, kayaks and fishing gear which kept them busy outdoors - and it's all free! The 'mums' had a ride in the vintage car which was lots of fun - thanks to our wonderful host Jayesh! I thoroughly recommend this place to families or for groups - it's our pick for accommodation in Hervey Bay.

We thoroughly enjoyed our all-too-brief holiday in Hervey Bay, and this can be attributed to our accommodation at 535 The Esplanade -The Beachside Barracks - and host (Jayesh)!
We were in a top floor apartment and enjoyed views across to the water, a sunny deck and very spacious layout.
The deck, while being an open-plan space, provides the option of privacy or social exchange with other guests. We loved sitting out there in the warmth of the afternoon sun.
The apartments are a modern blend of Balinese style décor with quality appliances - my favourite was the monsoon shower - and everything was beautifully clean.
The range of complimentary bikes/go-carts and kayaks meant that we were able to go riding along the Esplanade for as long or far as we liked, and we all went kayaking on the bay, which was good fun.
A shared laundry (and lines) enabled some holiday clothes washing, and a BBQ + pizza oven were a bonus.
Our children met other kids also holidaying at 535 and had the best time playing together in the large, leafy and secure grounds - happy kids, happy parents!
Jayesh was a very friendly and accommodating host, showing us around Hervey Bay, providing great recommendations for meals and delighting us with his vintage 'charabang'!
It really is holiday accommodation with a difference and we hope to return for another stay sometime!

The location was great, close to the pier and across the road from the beach. The owners were great and offer a tour of Hervey Bay when you check in and able to give loads of information. The kids loved the use of bikes and toy cars in the back yard. The furniture in the apartment was really unique and gave a nice feel to the place. Well equipped kitchen. Can't wait to go back for a longer visit!

Room Tip: Room 1-3 are in ground floor and 4-6 are in the upper level with a view of the ocean.

All the reviews are correct, especially if you have family and want to use the available kayaks and bikes. The owner is a great host and helpful. The units are so spacious and have so many good quality fittings. The large monsoon shower was divine. The front garden area with table and chairs was perfect for breakfast. There is plenty of parking at the back of the property and entry is via a secure gate. Our only problem was we were downstairs and the noise from upstairs guests, every foot step and moving of chairs, of which there was plenty going on until late, was a problem. We might just have been unlucky, other than that, it was excellent.

Dear RNP2008,

Thank you for the lovely review and for pointing out that folks who may not feel comfortable with some sounds from the guests above should book a top deck apartment. Having grown up in Vancouver, Canada I am used to old wooden 3-storey homes and feel a sense of comfort when I know there are others around - however - I can certainly appreciate that not everyone may feel the same way! Anyone who may be sensitive to this should consider the top floor apartments if available. They are not too much more expensive at about $20 extra per night. The top floor apartments are a bit more luxurious with the bedding, lounge rooms and space as well as offering a partial view of the water, birds and foreshore greenery.

Apartment #4 is great for couples, Apartment #5 is the largest in the building and Apartment #6 is a favourite of mine as it has water views along the internal corridor as well. Many of our reviews are from guests who have stayed in the garden apartments who also appreciated the lovely shaded seating area.

I am happy that you enjoyed your stay and appreciated all the little "extras" that we incorporated like the monsoon shower and ice making fridge with filtered water that makes that extra bit of difference in your stay. The reverse cycle air conditioners in every room have been a big hit in the hotter and cooler weather as well! I hope you will come and stay again one day on the top deck and you may be able to award a 5 on 5! This would be a feather from a senior reviewer!

Thanks ever so much for taking the time to submit your feedback, Lisa
