This is our second visit to the Boathouse Apartments. There are other great places to stay in Airlie, but this is our new preferred destination. Well equipped, two bedroom, two bathroom apartments are ideal when traveling with our teenage daughter. Nice large balcony to sit out on and enjoy the magnificent views over the new marina and out to sea.... More

We arrived about 8:00 and checked in to our apartment, hoping to grab a bite to eat at one of the two new restaurants located near the back of the property. Unfortunately one stopped serving at 8:30 and wasn't able to accommodate us and the other would have involved sitting outside, a fair distance from a heater... It's a ten... More

Thank you for making the effort to review your stay with us in July at the Boathouse Apartments By Outrigger. All the retail stores and restaurants on the ground floor of the complex are independently owned and operated, so unfortunately we cannot determine their operating hours.

The boathouse apartments are ideally located in Airlie Beach. Short walk to the beach and shops - just far enough from the main street to be quiet. The views from the balconies over Port of Airlie Cove are also beautiful. The apartments are well appointed, but television reception is woeful. Could only get Ch 2, 7 and SBS, so if... More

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us at the Boathouse Apartments. Apologies for the interuption to our digital tv reception as it took a lot longer to remedy then we were told.

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us at the Boathouse Apartments.

We had a family stay here in a 2bedroom apartment and LOVED it! Location is superb, views are incredible and we can't wait to go back. Staff could have been slightly more helpful, but the pool and balcony totally made up for it!

We have been staying there at least once a year for the last few years since the apartments were new (2011?) and finding it all as good in 2014 as it was on day one.

Our apartment was on the top floor with awesome views over the marina, and lovely sunrises. The furnishings were all modern with nice art pieces in all rooms.

Booked a short stay at the Boathouse Apartments in Airlie Beach and was blown away by the fantastic accommodation provided. We stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment which was beautifully set up and decorated, extremely comfortable and spotless. Couldn't have asked for more. Had a great time.
