Really enjoyed our 1 night stay and wish we could have stayed longer. The apartment was very spacious, had everything you could possibly need - and I mean everything! Sea views right on the beach, however it was also very quiet and comfortable. Off street free parking is a bonus. Excellent value, would definitely recommend. We will be back for...

This property is in a great location, right in the middle of the lovely Horsheshoe Bay. On the ground floor of the property there is a small supermarket and a restaurant and on the main road there are more bars, restaurants and cafés. There are some beautiful walking trails nearby, a safe net enclosure right opposite the property and a...

Very handy location, right opposite Horseshoe Bay and within a stroll of many restuarants and outsdoor pursuits. VERY roomy apartment, friendly, obliging service. Restaurant onsite, Sandies, was lovely, had a great, well priced meal.

Right on Horseshoe Bay. Best position - beach across the road, kids park, BBQs and picnic shelters all out the front. Supermarket underneath, cafe 30 metres and pub 50 metres. Large apartments with everything you need for holiday. Clean and spacious. Steps to apartments.

Yes, my husband and I are pretty fussy - but, yes, we really do our research about accomodation, dining etc. Shaw's present appearance and the area surrounding is not like the photos we viewed on the Internet. Our hearts sank before we even entered reception, the exteriors and the surrounds were scruffy and not inviting.The room itself, though indeed spacious...

We were sorry that you decided not to stay with us. Our Resort has recently undergone a huge refurbishment, with all new furniture and bedding. It has also been freshly painted both inside and out, and the photos on our website were updated to reflect this. We are located directly opposite the best swimming beach on the island, facing the...

Have stayed here several times in the last few years. Excellent location overlooking the bay. Really spacious apartments, with large living area and big bedrooms. Fully self contained including laundry - would be ideal for families. Great place to stay when visiting Maggie.

We stayed for 3 nights a couple of weeks ago, the place is very well maintained, clean, all the services and more you would expect from a self contained unit, the view of Horseshoe bay was fantastic. Under cover parking & if your room is close enough to the Telstra wifi booth across the road - its free!

We arrived on Magnetic Island looking for a bit of paradise but took one look at our accommodation and ran as fast as we could down to Horseshoe Bay and Magnetic Sunsets Resort ( formerly Shaws on the Shore). What a joy! and we soon settled into a lovely apartment overlooking the bay with a sunny balcony for five nights.The...
