Just got home from an amazing, yet too short, 4 day stay at Portside apartments unit 11. Views were amazing from the balcony and main bedroom. Everything we needed for a comfortable stay was at hand in the apartment, beds are super comfy, plus having access to our very own rooftop terrace with spa was just fantastic... The location couldn't... More

We stayed for one week in a two bedroom apartment (no 5). We had the most amazing stay ever! I visit Airlie beach frequently from south Australia as my brother lives in Airlie & I've stayed at numerous resorts in Airlie beach and this is by far the best there is! We were up for my brothers wedding and had... More

I stayed in a 2 bed/2 bath apartment (#5) over new years with friends. We were lucky to get in last minute with a cancellation. The apartment was really nice & had everything you need for a longer stay. Nice view from the balcony & the queen bed was really comfy too. The pool area is well maintained & great... More

We stayed here 2 nights and we had 2 apartments as there were 8 of us. 1 apartment had a private roof terrace with our own jacuzzi. It was really good to have this as all 8 of us could chill out and relax together and we had some fun

Spent a whole week here in one of the 2 Bedroom Ocean View Apartments. Very comfortable accommodation for the family while we enjoyed what Airlie Beach had to Offer. Decent kitchen. Nice balcony views. We were joined by some friendly cockatoos (about 5) each day in the afternoon. This place is sheltered from the western sun, so its very restful... More

Thank you for taking the time to review Portside. We are thrilled you enjoyed your stay! Yes, Portside is in a great location... too close to restaurants at times - as I avoid cooking often :-). We hope you are able to return and enjoy the tours you didn't have time to take. Best wishes to a Merry Christmas! More

Over the September school holidays we spent a great week at Portside Whitsunday Apartments in a 2 Bedroom Apartment with Rooftop Spa. The owner couldn't be more helpful. She knew everything you need to know about dining, festivals & day trips which she happily booked for us.The view was great and room clean and roomy. Can't wait to return.
