Read through some of the reviews by previous White Shells Luxury Apartments guests.

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.

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.

Underwood, Queensland


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!


Thank you



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.

Kathy & Wayne Diverall
Mango Hill, Queensland

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.

Daniel O'Connor
North Lakes, Queensland

The room and decor was fantastic. Managers friendly and accommodating. The apartment only needed a television in the main bedroom.

Rachel Jack
Southport, Queensland

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.

Hilton Ayrey
Christchurch, New Zealand

Really helpful host. Gave us all info we required at check in shops, bars, restaurants etc…. He was really helpful

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.

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

Tracey Andrews

Wonderful stay – rooftop pool definitely a plus
