Beautiful apartment with ocean views, especially from the roof top! Lovely and quiet, 5min walk to the beach, not too mention the local coffee shop! Check in, check out nice and simple too! We’ll definitely be back!!
We had an absolutely amazing time! We stayed in room 1 for 5 nights and there is only one thing we could fault about our stay (The couches) While we were there we decided to follow along with the Covid restrictions at the time (mask up when leaving the property, only going to the shops for essentials) but the stay was still perfect!!! We were so happy spending our entire days there. Private pool meant we could swim any time we wanted without coming into contact with others!!!! The apartment was clean on arrival. Beds comfortable. Would love to become regulars here. Apartment 1 was perfect.
I can sum it up in one word ‘Perfection’
We have stayed at White Shells several times before.
The area of Seaside village has its own charm with its buildings and public areas.
It is a quite area and the views of Mt Coolum and the closeness to the beach are great attractions.
Both apartment and the pool were excellent.
Our stay was awesome, uncomplicated and extremely relaxing. Situated on some of the most gorgeous coast line sunshine has on offer.
I absolutely loved my stay at White Shells. Every convenience was thought of, from kitchen appliances to beach towels – even your own private car space!! It was so quite and peaceful – just the break I needed. The rooftop pool was beautiful and our private spa magnificent. I would recommend this place to all.
First time staying at Marcoola & what a gem White Shell Luxury Apartments is. So glad we found it. Doug the manager was most accommodating with any question or request we had. The apartment that we were given (20) was huge, we spent most days just sitting out on the big patio & many hours in our very own heated pool. The furnishings were modern & beautiful. Loved the double door fridge which gave us endless cold water & ice. The cool boardwalk just across the road took you to the beautiful Marcoola Beach or a short stroll south to the Marcoola Surf Club. It was a perfect, relaxing long weekend. We all kept saying to each other that we didn’t want to go home & wished we could stay forever. Many thanks Doug for an amazing stay at White Shells. We will be back!
I was looking for accomodation that had a private pool and White Shells turned out to be everything I wanted. The private pool, large apartment, full amenities, location to the beach and quite neighbourhood meant that this stay was perfect. We will definitely be returning and making White Shells a regular getaway trip.
It was a dream thank you so much i forgot my house keys and Doug sent it to me it was very nice of him have a great week guys u will see us again with friends
Lovely accommodation in a quiet location with beautiful views and an easy stroll to the beach. The roof top spa was a bonus and thoroughly enjoyed.
The apartment was immaculate 10 out of 10 and the gentleman in reception was amazing. We had the best weekend… definitely will be back and highly recommend the hotel and the pool and spa on the roof
Easy check in. Very helpful Management. Everything we needed to make our stay relaxing and comfortable. So close to the beach. Spacious apartments. Beautiful communal pool/spa areas plus fantastic having access to our own private courtyard with spa.
Duane & Dale Bergman
Beautiful … we will be re-booking again this week for a longer stay. Have recommended White Shells to a number of people. This will be our holiday destination from now on.

We stayed in October 2019 after falling over with an initial booking at another location. Shout out to Doug who bent over backwards to help us and make it as comfortable and relaxed as possible. The private rooftop spa was superb and quite often we were the only ones up there. The rooms were large and roomy but as a point of note, all rooms are individually owned and so some rooms may be better appointed than others. Ours was on level 2 and a little dated but we had previously seen one on level 1 which was in far better condition. We were told the owners were the next occupants so likely the dated items will likely be changed. We thoroughly recommend White Shells apartments for your next holiday as we had an awesome 4 days there.
The accommodation, facilities and location were fantastic. The unit was spacious, clean and the plunge pool was a bonus!
Great location with easy access to all facilities including underground parking plus a wide selection of rooms including own pool or spa and all with BBQ’S. Very clean and tidy and the resident manager Doug can assist you with any questions. We have stayed at White Shells on multiple occasions and always had a great time and enjoyable stay.
Great staff, rooms were clean and presented well. Second time we have stayed and we will be back in the not to distant future.
Doug is extremely helpful and attentive. Nothings seems too much trouble for him and he does everything with a smile.
Excellent location, very spacious and well equiped. Easy to book and great to find, parking good too. A super stay.
Always sensational, the welcoming and the view!!!!!
What a beautiful location! We had everything we needed right on our doorstep but without the crowds! Would definitely go back. Middle of winter and we were still able to use all the facilities such as the heated plunge pool and the walks on the beach just finished our days off perfectly. Didn’t want to leave!
We stayed in the 2 bedroom pool apartment and it was fantastic. Definitely recommend and will definitely be back.
we usually stay at Caloundra but family were staying at Marcoola – the apartment and facilities were perfect – the Manager was friendly and very helpful which made our stay stress free.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Facilities great, pool great.
Fantastic view, great location and manages were awesome
Nice & Clean. We enjoyed the stay
Beautiful apartments. Clean and immaculately maintained. Friendly staff. We loved the outdoor private spa. Thanks for a peaceful tranquil stay
Amazing unit in great condition
Would have been nice to have milk in the fridge. Even long life!
Managers Comments: We have noted your comments and we will have milk in apartments in future.
Nice place to stay with family
Had a great time and lovely location…only thing ill give thumbs down to was the state of the bbq..i was really looking forward to cooking up a storm but the bbq was filthy. Other than that the whole experience was perfect ðŸ˜
Managers Comments: I am sorry that the BBQ was not cleaned. We have given it a thorough clean now and made the cleaners aware.
Apartment 47 – Fabulous! Such a quiet location and so near the beach – we have loved our stay here and would love to return. Thank you for your friendly welcome, Doug!
Had the most amazing stay thanks so much to the manager, Doug. Thanks so much
Thank you we had a fantastic stay. The apartment is absolutely wonderful and we really enjoyed our time at Marcoola. We will be back.
Very spacious and quiet apartments. Great location and facilities. Beautifully furnished.
We had a lovely, relaxed time. Thank you for a comfortable stay. The spa was such a nice extra to make our stay even more special.
Justin & Claire Peters
Lovely stay – thank you.
Loved it! Apartment 43 was beautiful, well stocked, well presented and White Shells is a great location in Marcoola. Will be back for a third time round.
Location is fantastic, loved the plunge pool. Apartment & surrounds are well kept. Plenty of storage in apartments.
Apartment was amazing. Will be back
Chris & Liz
An excellent second stay at White Shells. A welcome break from the U.K. winter in well appointed apartments with secure parking and a first class rooftop swimming pool. Doug & Vicky not only make you feel welcome but their attention to detail and any small requests are dealt with immediately.
Had a great experience from start to finish. Everything was clean. Apartment is very spacious. Spa was wonderful. A close walk to the beach where I got engaged!. A wonderful place to spend the weekend holed up.
Loved the location, so peaceful and quiet, perfect for our little getaway. Nice clean luxury rooms.
Great apartments and very friendly staff. Thanks Doug
Wonderful apartments and location. Restaurant and coffee shops 2 mins walk away and a 3 min walk to the beach along the boardwalk where we came across a long nosed bandicoot. Doug, the manager was great to deal with. Fantastic holiday and looking forward to coming back.
Lovely well thought out, plenty of storage and space.
Enjoyed everything especially the hospitality
Awesome as always 🙂
Wifi is quite slow. Location & Surrounds is awesome. Nice & quiet for our family. Hope to see you next year.
Manager Comments: We have NBN so it shouldn’t have been slow. It is normally very quick so not sure what the problem was.
Love it – will be back again!!
The view from the veranda of this apartment was amazing! Pool view is amazing too! It was a lovely place to stay – great, quiet, convenient location. Thank you
Very comfortable and well designed unit (No 32) with nice sea breezes. A pleasant change from the hustle and bustle of Noosa.
Fantastic resort. Beautiful pool. Lovely rooms
Larry & Linda Shyu
Lovely room, beautifully furnished. Very quiet location. Private spa had stunning views. Was great for a large family to stay in separate rooms in the one location. Very helpful friendly manager.
Great location (nice & quiet) with a nice walk along the boardwalk to the beach. Facilities were great. Apartment 31 was well maintained & well equipped. It really felt homely but also a great holiday home.
Good location. Great space.
A very relaxing weekend. Thank you
Such a serene & tranquil environment, beautiful to relax in. Thank you so much for everything.
Great value for 3 bed with plunge pool. Great size for group or family. Beautiful, relaxing, quiet location
Great stay – plan to return
TV could have more channels & a bit hard to navigate. Bedroom 2 needs a bedside lamp & pillows uncomfortable but would stay again. It’s a beautiful apartment. Thank you.
We were in room 13 and had a great time even though the weather was not very good. We would stay here again – no problem.
Thank you Doug for your superior customer service both on & off the phone. Default Restaurant (next door) has the best scotch fillet steak we’ve eaten. Highly recommend.
Was a fantastic family holiday – great beach, great pool and some nice cafes in walking distance.
Great location near to the beach. Loved the rooftop pool – amazing panoramic views
Everything was truly amazing and made our 10 year anniversary so special. Will definitely be back and highly recommend it to everyone.
A blackout curtain in the main bed would have been the icing on the cake. White Shells is beautiful. Thank you
We were initially concerned that the location was a bit “out of the way” but found that wasn’t the case with the great coastal pathway.
We absolutely love staying at White Shells. It is so quiet yet there is so much to do. People extremely friendly and kind.
Great location & Doug was extremely friendly & helpful. The unit was fantastic
Lovely, friendly staff
Lovely modern apartments, great view of Coolum mountain. Lots of places to eat in the surrounds. Will definitely recommend to friends.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Perfect room. We will definitely come back again.
Beautiful spot to relax and enjoy the sunshine, or enjoy the walking tracks and beaches. Whale watching from the roof – amazing!!
Had a great time. Thank you!
Great venue which offers variety for the whole family. Highly recommended. We will be back.
Perfect for a quiet relaxing family getaway. Rooms & kitchen are well equipped, clean & tidy. Instructions & details for a late check in were excellent. N0 improvements needed.
Kathy & Wayne Diverall
Great find – a hidden gem!! Was a wonderful place to stay, will definitely be back again.
I just wanted to pass on our appreciation of the great apartments you have there.
My wife, kids and I stayed there over the labor day long weekend. This was our 3rd stay at White Shells over the last 3 or 4 years and each time we are so happy with the quality of the location, quality of the apartment and the overall cleanliness. We don’t get away that often since we have had kids and it is nice that when we do get a chance, that we have found a place we know will be great upon arrival.
So, credit where credit is due! great place to stay.
The room and decor was fantastic. Managers friendly and accommodating. The apartment only needed a television in the main bedroom.
The only thing I would suggest is maybe a mat on the inside of foyer – especially when wet to wipe feet down. Other than that – paradise.
Really helpful host. Gave us all info we required at check in shops, bars, restaurants etcâ€¦. He was really helpful
Love this place. Have been coming here yearly for last 5 years and intend on continuity to do so! Such an amazing quiet hidden retreat.
We loved our short stay at White Shells. We remained cool over a very hot weekend and found the apartment very comfortable and very clean. We would highly recommend White
Fantastic apartment. Would consider getting an umbrella for the rooftop.
Kids bedroom was very bright in the morning. We had a great stay. Loved the plunge pool.
Possibly just provide some milk with the tea, coffee, sugar supplies. Overall it was absolutely perfect! We will definitely be back, Thank you. (Managers Comments: Sorry we missed putting milk in your apartment).
Location was perfect for us with 2 young children, everything was nearby. Rooms are very nice, clean and modern. Service fantastic and rooftop pool / spa has amazing views
We give Doug a 10 out 10! Great service & wonderful apartments. White Shells is a lovely hidden gem. Looking forward to our next visit.
Everything was great. Thanks
Only thing we could improve would be the length of our stay – much, much longer!
This is our second stay in this apartment. We love the quiet location that has easy access to all parts of the Sunshine Coast. The apartments and complex are maintained in an exceptional standard. Our family is aready looking forward to our next visit.
The apartments are lovely and very close to the beach. The manager was incredibly helpful and friendly. We will definitely be returning.
Love staying at White Shells. Broken sun bed was a bit average. (Manager: Thanks for your comments – we have since replaced the sun loungers)
Fantastic. Thank you. Loved our stay!
Excellent stay. Relaxing atmosphere. Close to beach. What else can you ask for. Only issue, hot tub was not working properly as water was not hot. (Managers note: thanks for your comments. We have since fixed the hot tub)
Thank you so much for an amazing stay xxoo
Thank you to Michelle for her lovely hospitality. We really enjoyed our short stay and will definitely be returning in 2017.
Location is perfect. Feels private but not isolated. Am definitely coming back
Excellent facilities, great location. Had an amazing holiday. Would highly recommend to anyone. Thanks to Doug who booked us at very short notice.
The pool & spa just stunning
Excellent stay, would be back again when we visit the Sunshine Coast 🙂
We had a great stay, very relaxing, enjoyed the spa, great view. Doug was very helpful when checking in. We will return.
Thank you!!! We enjoyed our stay here very much. The reception staff member was exceptionally friendly & helpful. Only thing – pillows weren’t the best!
Positives. Privacy is superb. The spa on the roof fantastic after a round of golf. Has everything one needs to have a home away from home. Lots of space. Just one thing if we stay over 2 nights towels & toiletries should be topped up. A box of tissues a must.
My kids had an awesome time in their own pool. My 8 year old asked if we could stay an extra week.
Great rooms & view. Foxtel unfortunately not working. No hand soap in bathrooms
Found a little slice of paradise that became our home away from home. Thanks Nancy (wife).
Outstanding accommodation. Only stayed 3 days, wish we were here for a week. Will be back. Good value, best accommodation we’ve ever had.
White Shells provided us with everything we needed – we enjoyed the peace and tranquility compared to the chaos of Noosa over the school holidays. Doug was very polite, helpful and couldn’t do enough to make our stay a very pleasant one.
Excellent location. Thanks
Great Location to relax for a few days. A great mixture of peace & quiet yet still so close to everything.
The manager is really nice. Thank you
Apartment had everything that you needed. Like a home away from home. Very relaxing.
Dallas & Cezanne Bayly
Loved the rooftop
John & Dianne Martin
Great peaceful location with excellent beach and walking paths access. Modern well maintained complex with friendly and helpful management. Would definitely come again.
Excellent stay, will definitely be back!! This was a perfect birthday weekend getaway.
Excellent stay, great location. Will be back
Had a great time in a beautiful apartment with amazing views. Thank you very much.
We had a wonderful relaxing time. Thank you for allowing us extra time. Didn’t have to rush out. Much appreciated
Had an amazing experience. Will certainly be back soon
A beautiful stay in a beautiful apartment.
We absolutely loved our stay at White Shells. We appreciated all the great information in the guest info books as it really helped us plan activities. The standard of the room was impeccable! Can’t wait to return.
Fantastic stay, exceeded my expectations. Wanted a quiet place and this delivered. So close to the beach, and the rooftop spa was fabulous.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Would recommend it to anyone. Doug is a great manager, great sense of humor. Keep up the good work Doug.
Doug is incredibly accommodating. Units are perfect. 2nd time here, many more to come.
Excellent value for our family and a great stay. What would make it better? More WiFi without having to log in everyday. Better Choice on TV, as an international traveler keeping abreast of news is important – very limited choice. That said this break was about family and talking rather than watching.
Beautiful views of Mount Coolum
Wonderful stay – rooftop pool definitely a plus
We had an absolutely wonderful stay, the rooms were excellent & beautifully clean and spacious. The only comment we really had was that it would be really great if there were available for the colder nights a couple of extra blankets.
Doug has been an exceptional host / manager. Nothing was to small of a query and he always contacted / followed up to ensure you / we were satisfied. Very helpful and as a front person his mannerism was professional, knowledgeable, second to none with a cheerful genuine disposition. Thank you Doug.
So lovely & modern, clean & fresh! Couldn’t fault anything! Will be writing a great review online, and will definitely be back!. Thank you so much!
Fantastic. Nothing missing
Massive thanks to Doug. White Shells Apartments were perfect for our stay. Doug went out of his way to ensure our stay was perfect. Very accommodating. All the best! Thanks.
Amazing apartments, excellent location, very friendly and helpful staff and great facilities. We loved staying here. Highly recommend to all. Thank you Doug & all.
