Sensational Place!

5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here at Shore Place. The house itself is so modern, incredibly clean and spacious with all the things we needed for a relaxing beach holiday with the children, even beach towels, tennis rackets and sand toys provided! The beds were very comfortable in a quiet location. The Sands Resort is an ideal get away from the hussle and bussle of Melbourne. Lovely to wake up to the little fairy wrens on the balcony with tranquil views overlooking sunrise on the golf course. Didn't want to leave. We'll definitely be back.
