A beach weekend aware from Brisbane requires a number of things. Proximity to the beach, comfortable accommodation, easy access to cafe's and restaurants, and friendly hosts. All of which couldn't be faulted. Even forgetting our beach umbrella, we were kindly loaned one from the Tranquil Shores staff, which was very pleasent. I would highly reccomend this place to friends and... More

While this is not fabulous it could be so much better than it is. It is in a perfect position,just a stones throw from the beach, fishing, boardwalk, coffee shops, restaurants and a very short stroll to the supermarket, chemist, Main Street shopping. A car is not needed here as you can walk everywhere. Our unit was very tired and... More

We apologise if there was a blanket in your unit that required cleaning. We appreciate your feedback as we rely upon guests to bring some of these issues to our attention. When tucked away in cupboards they are not always detected after every departure. Unfortunately as no other issues were brought to our attention during your stay we were unable... More

This place should not be booked if you have children!! The managers advised or rather "warned" upon check on that the children shouldn't make noise as there apartment is below. They also advised on checkout that we have no respect as our children were 'screaming' at inappropriate times (this being 6am when the baby woke up and wanted a bottle).... More

It is a pity that after being spoken to about damage to the carpet & a sheet in your unit that you felt compelled to totally misrepresent conversations that were held. Your comments are inaccurate and lack integrity. Your total lack of regard for other guests was disappointing and your vexatious comments highlight why we would warn accommodation providers against... More

What a lovely surprise to walk into Unit 19 at Tranquil Shores - not only was there a great view over the tropical pool and spa, but also a nice view of the ocean. The Unit itself was beautifully appointed with a stunning 3 seater and 2 seater lounge suite (perfect for relaxing on a lazy sunny afternoon), a lovely... More

I initially gave this hotel a glowing review. We had a great time... great location and very spacious apartment. I left my phone charger cord there & asked for it to be posted to me. The manager posted it and I had it quickly. However, he failed to mention any costs above & beyond Australia post charges, and charged me... More

Your comments are inaccurate and misleading as you conveniently omit half of the relevant factors around this expense. This format is designed for honest feedback. You were advised that postage expenses were likely to cost more than the charger but insisted it be sent to you in Cairns. I am still amazed that you fail to accept responsibility for an... More

Myself and my Family stayed at Tranquil Shores for 5 wonderful nights in October 2015. The room was incredibly clean and very well presented. It was lovely having a self contained unit with a very decent sized kitchenette allowing us to cook for ourselves. The managers were most helpful in every way. No problem was too small for them...

Our usual go-to resort was fully booked and tried Tranquil Shores as it is ideally located along Bulcock Beach. We were glad we stayed there! The unit was big, clean and really has that beachy vibe!
