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.

We've stayed at Paul & Jennifer Heatley's Reefside Villas three times while visiting family and exploring this beautiful part of Queensland. They have spacious 2 and 3 bedroom villas with all the facilities you need to make it a "home from home." Many have wonderful views across to the Whitsunday Islands and it's a good base for a holiday if... More

The apartments are set on a steep hill, which was hard going, especially for my mother-in-law who has bad legs, but it would keep you fit and you had a fantastic view from your balcony! The apartments were fully fitted out with dishwasher, washing machine and drier, which was a great bonus, especially with a family. The only downside was,... More

As others have noted, these apartments are set into the side of a hill, but this wasn't a problem for us, and meant that we had great views out over the ocean from our balcony. We shared a 3bedroom apartment (2 queen rooms and one twin) that was extremely well set up, with a washing machine, dishwasher and a large... More
