Fabulous apartment. Really big and clean with all the mod cons. Staff lovely and very helpful. Apartments are but a short walk (2 mins) from all the main bars and restaurants of Airlie Beach, and only 5 mins walk to the Port of Arlie for boat trips etc. Pool was nice, very clean, with views over the sea, and bubbling...

Hubby and I had the most wonderful few days. Thanks so much to Colleen and John, they are the perfect hosts. They are so friendly, and nothing is too much trouble. They feel like long lost friends. They even posted hubby's jacket (which he forgot) back to us in Melbourne. We had a one bedroom apartment with rooftop jaccuzzi, and... More

Have stayed here twice now. Once in a studio and then again in a 2 bed apartment both times loved my stay! The apartments are beautifully decorated and the views are amazing. I like that you still get a view without having to hike up the hill. Would highly recommend staying in this little bit of luxury!

We spent a week here in a one bedroom apartment. Hosts are very friendly, so check in was easy. The room was very large and had everything you want in it. The bed was great, I usually get back ache when away but had no problems this time. Location great no big climb and just so handy to everything. Good... More

Wow what a wonderful 2 week holiday we had while staying at Portside the room, staff and service were absolutely fantastic. The only negative would have been the steep driveway, stairs to the room and to the rooftop jacuzzi and traffic noise but the beauty of portside out weighed the negatives. Great views, pool, jacuzzi and privacy beyond ones imagination.... More

We had 13 people staying in several apartments over various dates this last 10 days and can recommend these immaculate apartments to anyone staying in Airlie Beach. Located on the main road, so close to restaurants, lagoon and seafront, you don't need a car. Apartments are well equipped and the pool is lovely in the warm Whitsunday weather. But the... More
