This property is located on the hill side behind Cannonvale - So expect a steep driveway (although this is manageable and to be expected given the views and the nature of the terrain) - about 5 minutes drive to Airlie, and 30 minutes walk. It is well located with access to the marina and shops. We had a nice view... More

You are essentially paying for a room and a kitchen. No extras. Not even soap. So make sure you bring it all with you. The aircons and ceiling fans were dirty and the showerhead was broken. The space is generous and I think this would def suit a family on a budget, but nothing flash. Shops are very close and... More

Have just spent 2 nights at Reefside Villas. Nice and convenient to everything we wanted to do. We did find the parking situation most inconvenient though. We were in an average sized vehicle but it was too long to go into the garage. You had to back into the carport or garage and this was very difficult. Overall we enjoyed... More

Great accommodation beautiful views from our balcony we had a three bedroom villa which was well equipped except for maybe some soap for the kitchen and bathrooms. Interestingly steep pathways to get to the villa but well worth a trip and will definitely be back to stay again.

We only stayed here for 2 nights but when we arrived it met my expectations and more. We were room 6 right at the back. It had a garage to park our hire car in - slight issue as its on very steep hills but nothing to complain about. The front door opened into stairs which went upstairs into the... More

We stayed in one of the units last week and were pleased with the size of the units especially as we had kids who could do their own things. The path to the villas though is an absolute killer - narrow, steep and winding. The manager there was outstanding. Was at the door in no time and was one of... More

Reefside villas was fantastic! My fiance and I stayed over the New Years period with a couple of friends (2 other couples) and the first thing we noticed was the fantastic view. The apartments were clean, spacious, and had gorgeous views of the water. The complex is located about a 5 minute walk downhill to everything you need (Coles, fast... More

Paid $1800 for a 5 night stay for a 3 bedroom villa ($360p/n). Arrived to the villa with a weathered chipped door, deadlock did not engage, all floors covered in dirt from entry to both levels, main bathroom towel rack bent, blinds broken in one of the bedrooms. Very old interior. Toilets and bathrooms not clean, glass in bathrooms covered... More

We stayed in a two bedroom apartment. It was clean and tidy- spare blankets were provided, lots of utensils to use in the kitchen, and out door table with chairs, comfy lounge and large T.V. Pools were kept clean also. Cant really complain considering it is relatively cheap to stay there compared to many other places! Not far from Airlie... More
