I booked Shades apartments for its location and the five star reviews. It turned out to be well worth it. It started with the lovely Jacqui (the best bit of Shades) answering all my silly emails and enquiries. When we first arrived it was a bit worrying as we turned off the main road and up into to a very...

Location of this place could not be better, it is off in the middle of a neighborhood within minutes of walking distance to some of the best restaurants and incredible calm beaches. We stayed in Apartment 6 and it was extremely clean and included everything needed. Awesome bathroom, kitchen and bedroom. The bed was extremely comfortable and the whole apartment...

She helped us arrange pick up from the airport and drove us to the grocery store the first day. She gave us great advice on things to...

I visited Shades on a friends recommendation and boy what a recommendation. I travelled there with my parents and from the moment we arrived nothing was too much trouble. Shades is a real jewell in the Paynes Bay crown, it is in a very unique position and while it doesn't sit 'on the beach' it doesn't need to, it literally...

Everything was taken care of, from the moment we landed and being collected from the airport, to having a bed waiting for us at the beach every day. All of this and half the cost of all the hotels in and around the area. We stayed in the penthouse and it was much better than pictures show. Jacqui took care...
