As Oprah stated while visiting the Whitsundays “Oh God it is so beautiful here”.     

Couldn’t Believe how good this Accommodation was!

“Booked penthouse apartment but didn’t expect it to be that good as it was extremely reasonable. However – true penthouse style it was and exceeds the expectations from the pictures. Everything you could want and more. Staff extremely helpful and gave excellent advice on boat trips. 10-15 minute walk to Airlie itself via boardwalk – but very pleasant walk along waterfront, and weighing it up on arrival, other apartments in Airlie itself seemed in the main to be located at top of very high hills…….. Shingley overlooks Abel Harbour and is absolutely idylic in outlook and location. We were visited on the balcony by local cockatoos. We booked it for a weekend stay while visiting Oz, and it was an excellent base for getting a feel of the Whitsundays. Probably the best apartment accommodation we have ever stayed in.”
