There was a group of us that had 2 apartments (2&3brms) I was in the 2 bedroom apartment. The views were amazing & it was lovely to sit out on the balcony & just take it all in. However, carrying heavy luggage up 2 flights of stairs (1st Floor) is not fun. The apartment was nice, clean & pretty much... More

Lovely place to stay. The views were great, and it was a short walk down the hill to the shops. Hot tip: if you are flying in and have a crew, grab the maxi-taxi, they'll take you to the door so you don't have to walk all the way up top with your luggage! Everything was clean and lovely, only... More

Beautiful apartments and views. As some of the residents decided to extend their stay and the apartment we reserved was not available the manager gave us the nicest and largest apartment in the complex. We had great views, state of the art equipment and a beautiful apartment. The managers were very nice and responsive

even though it was 2 years since we last visited Jules made us very welcome. I cannot say enough about the apartment from the view to everything that is in there. They have thought about everything, you name it and they have it in the apartment. If there were 6 stars the Sea Star would get my vote every time.... More

We had a nice stay at Sea Star Apartments. The apartments are well equipped, very clean and you have a great view. Our kids also enjoyed the pool (spectacular view) even though it was a bit cold. Unfortunately, 2 of the 3 nights we were there, people close to the apartment were having loud parties, so sleeping with an open... More

Thank you for your review on TripAdvisor and apart from the noisy neighbours, we're glad you all had a good time. We have very little control over other complexes, but if we're told about any disruption at the time (i.e. any time night or day), we can certainly try to address it. The party noise came from the apartment block... More

Our apartment was very roomy, comfortable and had stunning views from balcony. Very clean, and had everything you could need in the kitchen. Two bedrooms, 2 sofas, and 3 air conditioners. Julie and Wendy were both very helpful, recommending tours and booking them for us. Close to shops and attractions. Only cons were that our boys said the wifi didn't... More

Our stay at this apartment was short but enjoyable. When staying in a place like Airlie Beach you want to make the most of the views and Sea Star offers exactly that. Julie greeted us with a warm welcome and was able to organise our tour in the Whitsundays the next day with great efficiency and at a better cost... More

Thanks for taking the time to write such an informative review. All valid points. Our pool isn't heated but still get used all year round. Please remember that it is only a 10 minute walk down into the centre of Airlie Beach and approx $8 back in the taxi. We'd love to have your back. Glad you all had such... More

This is my second stay at Sea Star and like the first, it was excellent. The apartment was spotless, drinks and snacks were inexpensive, the manager could not do enough for us and then there is the view. Wow, what an amazing view from the apartment. It is a bit of a hike to the restaurants and nightlife. About 15... More

The views from our accommodation were incredible; the apartments are located up on a hill overlooking Airlie Beach. A fair walk into town if you don't have a car, if you do have a car the apartments have their own garage which was great. The pool and surrounding areas were nice and clean. There were a couple of issues with... More

Thanks for taking the time to write your review. We would like to mention a couple of details. It takes 10 minutes to walk DOWN hill into Airlie Beach and it's approx $6 - 8 taxi fare back up. We now have FREE Wi-Fi in every apartment. This was only installed in April and is naturally a huge plus for... More

We loved this resort with our huge two bedroom apartment. Beautiful sea views and lovely furnishings. Our son loved the swimming pool and spa which had beautiful views. The only thing we could fault was the location was too far to walk in and out of town as it's hillside but with a hire car it was 2 mins from... More
