Apartment was very clean, with awesome views from our front door. A short walk down a steep hill and your in the midst of hustle and bustle. Lots of pubs and eateries. Woolworths... More

My friend and I recently stayed a week at Sunlit Waters. It is by far the best place I have stayed in Airlie Beach and one of the cleanest appartments I have ever stayed in . Absolutely spotless !! The appartments are situated about a 5 minutes walk from town, but are far enough away that you do not hear... More

I highly recommend Sunlit Waters to anyone holidaying at Airlie Beach. The accommodation is impeccably clean and well maintained and the view from all apartment balconies is absolutely stunning. Stuart, the owner, has a wealth of local information, is cheerful, friendly and will even book your tours and advise on things to on and off the beaten track. I will... More

Sunlit waters proved to be an excellent choice for our accommodation. We were without a car and the uphill walk was not ideal but really becomes worth it to enjoy the view while having breakfast or a couple of drinks on the balcony. Rooms are clean, comfortable and have everything you need while still being a short walk to the... More

Sunlit Waters is a very good deal for the money. Up a hill the balcony provides a great view over the old harbor and seaside. The apartment itself clean and provides everything you ask for. Stuart was a very friendly and helpful host. You won't be disappointed.

We recently stayed 4 nights at Sunlit Waters and loved it. just a short walk up a hill from town gives you great views across the water to the sunset. The small studio room was very clean and had everything needed for a great base for our holiday. The pool was relaxing for a swim with a view. All other... More

Of the four places I stayed in Airlie, this was by far the best. It is an intimate 7 room motel run by the owner and that always makes a big difference to personalised service. Close enough to walk into town but far enough away to not get any of the music noise from the pubs. How's the serenity!! Such... More

We stayed at the Sunlit Waters Apartments for three nights and enjoyed it very much. The rooms are perfect equipped and the view over Airlie is beautiful. Quite located with short walking distance to town centre. Thanx Stuart for the great time!
