We booked Boathouse after much research for our stay in Airlie Beach as last leg of our holidays in Queensland. The whole experience, from reservation to check out, was just perfect. We have a lot of experience in this type of high end apartment accommodation as part of our regular family holidays in many different countries. I would rate Boathouse... More

I have mixed feelings about this place. The position over the water is stunning and the apartments are clean and modern. The check-in at reception was rather odd and the gentleman ran through everything parrot fashion and seemed disinterested. I kind of felt like I had entered interview room not a reception. The apartments look lovely but lack practicalities like... More

Thank you for your review regarding your recent stay with us at the Boathouse Apartments. The shower in the second bathroom has a walk in shower without any obstacles or steps, which less agile guests may find a bit more user friendly. Luggage racks are currently being discussed as an option. Reception hours are 08:00 - 21:00 seven days a... More

We booked four rooms here, the apartments are spacious, modern and very clean, the penthouse was stunning! All housekeeping staff are uber friendly and Megan at reception is very helpful and courteous. Unfortunately we had the bad experience of having a gentleman at reception who clearly doesn't like his job and portrays this in his dealings with guests. He greatly... More

We spend five nights in two bedrooms apartment in boathouse and enjoyed it a lot. All apartments have a view of Marina. The apartments have all necessary appliances for a comfy stay. It is a close walk to Airlea Beach and town centre - 5 to 10 min. They also have a swimming pool and spa. They provide beach towel... More

Our family loved our week at the Boathouse apartments We stayed on the second floor and the views were fantastic. Our apartment was very clean and fitted out luxuriously. The beds were so comfortable and despite being above Denman cellars we didn't notice the noise. The pool is fantastic but too cold to swim in at this time of year.... More
