I recently stayed here for 3 nights in September 2014 primarily for going out on boat trips to the Barrier Reef, Whitsundays etc. The location is perfect just a short walk to the port and only a little further to the town with all it's shops and restuarants. We had a two bedroom apartment with a gorgeous view overlooking the... More

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us in September at the Boathouse Apartments By Outrigger. With the addition of the new Cruise Whitsundays terminal here at the Port Of Airlie, it does make day tripping out to the islands and the reef a breeze, being that the terminal is a 2 minute walk from the...

We booked this hotel for a one-night stay after a week sailing the Whitsunday Islands. The location is very convenient to shopping in Airlie Beach and had a lovely view overlooking the marina and the sea beyond. Our 2 bedroom apartment was neat and clean and had all the amenities we needed for a very comfortable stay. Highly recommend!

I recently stayed for a few nights and we did have a nice time. Perfect location as we did a lot of tours so getting to the port was so easy. Restaurants below were nice.

My partner and I stayed at The boathouse by Outrigger in Airlie Beach for our babymoon. The staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome. They assigned us a spectacular room which was comfortable and spotless. Closest accom to the Port or Airlie.

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

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...
