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

We enjoyed the views and the pool and we didnt mind getting a maxi cab into town. The villas were clean but we felt that we could have done better if we knew the area better. The villas are in Cannonvale and as are many of the buildings in the area on a steep hill. Newer building technologies deal with... More

We stayed with our 2 daughters in a 2 bedroom apartment (number 30). The view from the top balcony was fantastic and the location was quiet. It was a shame the outdoor setting only had 2 chairs. The apartment looked nothing like that on the brochure or website and was a little tired. While the beds were comfortable the pillows... More

I stayed with friends here in a 3 bedroom apartment. The apartment had a great view as it is set on the hillside, downside you have to get up there. Very steep driveway and narrow driveway was fine for my little Corolla but I'm glad I only have a small car. Step hills to walk up, but the complex is... More

We stayed here for 3 days, with 2 other couples for the Airlie Beach Music Festival. So for us it was perfect. Good value for money, and the bus stop,Banjos steak house and bar and shops were just a short walk from your accommodation. I would stay there again.

These apartments are ok! Nothing fancy and in need of an upgrade. Little things like new outdoor table for the balcony (the timber is rotten), new shower heads (or clean the current ones with CLR). The photos on the website are obviously of one that has been refurbished as ours was looking rather tired. But for $130/nt it does the... More

We stayed in the 3 bedroom and it was a hike to get to. I had trouble parking my dual cab Navara and couldn't close the garage door. The villas itself were roomy and lovely to stay in. Walking distance to shops and bus stop. Two pools kept my kids happy.
