We stayed in a beautifully decorated 2 bedroom apartment which was spacious and clean with lovely views over the Port of Airlie from the balcony. The kitchen had a large fridge, oven, hop plate and full size dishwasher and there were 2 bathrooms plus laundry facilities. We really couldn't find fault in the apartment at all and would definitely stay... More

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

I've stayed in Airlie a lot over the years and watched this being built and finally stayed this week. So the positives are a nice feeling apartment with timber floors and nice open plan, good sized rooms, well equipped, nice view out over the marina. Unfortunately also some challenges, the back bedroom open out to the open walkway and the... More

Modern, fresh apartments as per photos. Nice beds and bathrooms. Kitchens had the basics, but would benefit from a few more plates/bowls and tupperware. Pool facilities and kids play area always clean and not overly busy. The short walk into town wasn't too bad, but the lack of any pedestrian options at the first road crossing was annoying (we had...

Fabulous place, so glad we stayed. It's the closest hotel/apartments to the Port of Airlie and getting the ferry to Hamo was easy. The Boathouse was also close walking distance to the Main Street of Airlie. And it has cafés, restaurant and shops practically next to the lobby/reception area. Megan on reception was lovely and helpful with directions and suggestions... More

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

Although we had booked a 2-bedroom apartment for the two of us, we were delighted to be upgraded to a 3-bedroom which was situated on the top (3rd) floor. And while we didn't use the extra bedrooms or bathroom, the apartment living area was spacious with stunning Queenslander / colonial decor. There was a separate balcony off the the 2... More

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.

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.

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
