A combination of ancient Asian furnishings, latest generation appliances and stylish fittings have produced a modern and eclectic style. Adults and children alike are charmed by this grand old building.
Five3Five is a beautifully restored vintage Queenslander with a seafront position at desirable Shelly Beach close to the hub of the Urangan Pier district. The blend of ancient Asian decor with modern appliances and fittings combined with the outdoor element within each apartment provides a wonderful ambience for a unique holiday experience.

As an alternative there is a lovely covered picnic area on the beach across the road with public facilities that guests may enjoy.
If you would like to bring additional guests please advise us 24 hours prior to arrival so that we are able to place extra towels in the apartments. The charge for extra occupants is $15 per person per night. This helps to offset our extra linen, towel and cleaning costs. We have adopted this practice to be able to pass on savings to our guests when fewer occupants are in the apartments. Thank you for your understanding.
Exceeding the number of guests stated on your Booking Confirmation without consent will result in a fee of $25 per person per night. The maximum occupancy number for Apartment #4 @ five3five is 5 guests including infants and children within that total as per local laws.
Exceeding the maximum number of 5 guests will result in the termination of your booking and guests will be required to vacate the apartment immediately without refund.
Any behaviour that compromises the safety or quiet enjoyment of neighbouring apartments will result in the termination of your booking without refund. We would ask that noise levels in the evening after 9 pm are reasonable in respect of your neighbours and they in turn are expected to ensure you also have peaceful enjoyment of the property. Please notify us in the event that you are being disturbed.
The apartment must be left in a neat and tidy state in order to avoid excess cleaning charges. This includes wiping up big spills inside the appliances and on the outdoor BBQ. Excess cleaning of appliances requiring an additional 30 minutes or more will incur an additional fee.
All dishes are to be run through the dishwasher. We provide ample dishwashing tablets for this. In consideration of all guests we request that the dishes and cooking implements be left sanitised by the machine. Please ensure all dishes and cookware are put away prior to departure.
If you have a very early departure, please let us know. We would request that the dishwasher be put on prior to vacating. We will notify the housekeepers of your early departure and arrange for them to allow time to put away the dishes.
All rubbish must be placed in the bins prior to departure. We expect that any garbage or food on the floor, furnishings and on any surfaces will be collected and disposed of appropriately. This includes your private outdoor area.
Please be aware that many of today's sunscreen products can leave indelible marks on the linens and towels. Please exercise care when using these products as linens and towels marked by these solutions must be discarded. Replacement cost for linens lost due to carelessness with sun products will be collected from the security deposit.
We request that you report any damage, breakage or maintenance issues immediately so that we can promptly rectify the situation. For items that require replacing we would appreciate being able to discuss this prior to your departure.
There is an outdoor cold water shower directly across the road at the beach, one outdoor cold water shower in the front garden and a garden hose at the back of the apartments . We would appreciate your cooperation in rinsing off excess sand prior to entering the apartments on return from the beach. This keeps the sand build up inside the apartment to a minimum during your stay.
Moving furniture inside the apartments is not permitted. If you would like the single beds pushed together or other furniture moved to accommodate mobility difficulties, please let us know and we will happily organise this for you.
To access the top floor apartment, you must climb 2 small flights of steps. Because of the age of the building and narrow corridors, the space not conducive to easy access for a wheelchair. We have no measures in place to cater for special needs. We recommend apartments #1, #2, #3 on the ground floor for guests with mobility difficulties.

We are very mindful of our guests who may have animal or dust allergies and wish to keep our promise of a dander free accommodation.
Strictly no smoking inside the apartments. A $250 penalty applies. We do provide an ashtray and there is covered seating outside in the front garden where you are welcome to smoke if other guests are not in the vicinity. As an alternative, there are picnic tables across the road with lovely views to Fraser Island.
Check-out is at 10 am. Please feel welcome to leave at your leisure any time before 10 am. Place the key on the dining table and pull the door closed. If you are leaving one hour or more prior to 10am please send a quick sms and we will notify housekeeping.
