I arrived at Kipara because there were no backpackers available and I was stranded in Airlie Beach due to a cyclone. Despite the circumstances, as soon as I arrived I was welcomed by Shirley, who was very friendly and even tried to give me a discount due to the weather - which was obviously not her fault! I wish I... More

I didn't want to stay in a backpackers, and this place seemed affordable and nice. Shirley at the desk was very helpful and sweet. The room was clean and comfy, the wifi is spotty in room because the layout is so spread out. But there is no charge and they have a computer you can use in the reception as... More

We stayed for two nights in one of the self contained cabins during our stay in Airlie beach. I found this to be great value for money in lovely surrounds. The accommodation was clean and had air conditioning. I would definately stay here again.

5 friends and I stayed for 8 nights in a Villa for under $110 per night under a weekly rate, excellent value with nothing compromised. The villa was spacious and very clean. The pool and BBQ areas were cleaned daily. It is 3 minute drive from Airlie and if you do not have a car there is a bus stop... More

We only stayed one night as that was all the time we had. This is a great place for all the basics, including air conditioning, access to cheap wifi. We were able to sleep 4 adults for $100 for the night. I know process may be seasonal but that was first week of January. Staff were very friendly. Great budget... More

We had 2 nights here to visit the Whitsundays. The manager was so helpful and friendly - nothing was too much trouble and she sorted out transport and other trips with enthusiasm. Our cabin was lovely with everything we needed and space outside to eat and park the car. Certainly recommend this accommodation if you want to self cater and... More

Kipara is a bungalow park situated nearby Airlie Beach. Although there is a supermarket on walking distance, you need wheels to get to Airlie Beach (approx. 2 km). The cabin was equipped up to the standards (kitchenette, (rather noisy) refrigerator, tv, airco and correct bathroom). Although everything was functioning correctly, we had the impression that the cleanliness could have been... More

The cabin we got was big enough for 2 persons and we could store our luggage on the bunk bed. Although the furniture was a bit dated, the cabin was clean. Moreover, It was pleasant to have a bathroom inside the cabine. There was enough distance between each cabin so there was no noise nuisance. The receptionist was very helpful... More

We were pleasantly surprised by the luxury we got for a budget price. We stayed two nights in a self contained cabin, which had everything we needed. A double bed, clean shower, fully equipped kitchen, cable tv, a private terrace and our own parking space right next to the cabin. The cabin is nicely decorated with bright colors. We really... More

Our host was lovely and helpful. Rooms were basic and it was a bit stuffy in the room, no doubt from the rain. But would definitely stay there again. Taxi drive to airlie beach costs less than $10. Supermarket about 500m away
