We stayed here for a few nights as a base for exploring the Whitsundays and enjoyed our stay. The location of the apartments is excellent, only a short walk to the beach, lagoon, and main streets. Colleen provided fantastic assistance and information regarding tours and local amenities. The apartment was very well equipped (we did notice a few ants in... More

Our family stayed here for our holiday. The service was fantastic, very friendly and helpful. Colleen and John were only to happy to assist us with anything we needed. The room was modern, clean and very roomy. Close to Main Street for shopping and tours.

Stayed here late August, it was perfect. Private sun deck with spa/jacuzzi. Weather was awesome, apartment was just the right size for us, with everything we could possibly need. Even though there were quite a few steps, it meant that we had earned our beers on the balcony at sunset. This was booked via bookings.com - never again, they took... More

Such a great position, particularly if you don't have a car while staying here. Great kitchen, Bosch cooktop, oven, dishwasher. Best of all though was the amazing king size bed. So comfortable, we slept really well the whole time. Also had a lovely afternoon by the pool and in the spa. We would not consider staying anywhere else if we... More

Great views, clean, and comfortable. The Managers very helpful and accommodating. Very handy to local shops and restaurants. The only negative was the traffic - couldn't leave the windows open at night due to the noise.

So pleased you enjoyed your stay Anita. Yes, we do have a great location which does unfortunately mean the road can be busy during the evenings. This is why we have ceiling fans and air-cons in each bedroom, as it would be too noisy for light sleepers to have windows open. I hope we are able to welcome you back... More

Lots of resorts are located up a hill, but not the portside. Only negative was the lap pool not heated and a problem with the spa. Hosts colleen n John... More

We moved to Portside as we had such a bad experience on our first night in Airlie staying at Boathaven Spa next door. Colleen rescued us and made us so so welcoming restoring our faith in Airlie Beach & customer service. The Apartment was huge, beautifully decorated, spacious and spotlessly clean. Brilliant and i can highly recommend Portside both for... More

These apartments are outstanding. We had a 2 bedroom with roof terrace spa and you could not have asked for a nicer or well equipped base in Airlie Beach. The mgmt team are brilliant, so nice helping us out with restaurant recommendations and organising whitsunday tours. Location is spot on, straight 3 mins walk into centre of town and the... More

If you want to be a hop skip and a jump away from the main street of airlie beach (with no hills to climb but still great views) then I would highly recommend this terrific resort. You are literally just a few steps away from all the main restaurants and shops. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment with its... More

My husband and I spent three nights here for our honeymoon and had a fantastic time! The apartment was cosy and comfortable and we splashed out and went for the rooftop spa and BBQ which was perfect.
