Just loved our stay, very peaceful and tranquil, lovely to have a beautiful beach just across the road, board walks and a local cafe, and only minutes away from other facilities.These apartments are well located that you are away from the hustle and bustle of the busy tourist spots but close enough to visit the tourist attractions if you want...

The location couldn't be better, only a minute walk to the beach or local Cafe. You are far more likely to hear the sound of the ocean than the noise of traffic. The 2 bedroom apartment was fully self contained and had a lovely open plan with a strong indoor/outdoor flow. A travel cot was available for our one year...

Stayed in a 2br 2bath apt and pleasantly surprised at the quality of these self contained apartments. Would suggest having a car would make life easier but not essential. Super close to beach (note that apartments on levels 1+2 don't have sea views due to vegetation), 10min walk to local Marcoola shops for great cafe coffee and dinner at the...

We stayed in a three bedroom apartment with my family and we all loved it. Nice and spacious which was great for 6 adults. Great if you don't want to be in the busy part of the Sunshine Coast. Would stay here again.

We stayed in a ground floor 3 bedroom apartment which had a private heated pool. Whiteshells is a luxurious place to stay. Short walk to beautiful beaches. A great area, walk to coffee shops and cafes. Marcoola has a country town feel about it, so if you want to stay away from the crowds this is the place. Short drive...

Stayed in a three bedroom apartment with private swimming pool. Great beach location. Apartment had terrific features. Resort enforces no party policy so it was a quiet and relaxing stay. Great Italian restaurant within walking distance and a short drive to Mt Coolum where there is a great walking track to the summit. Will be back!!!

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
