Stuart and Lisa looked after us the whole time, advising us on great trips around the Whitsundays. The location is superb at about 100 meters from the end of the main street in Airlie Beach. Rooms were clean, spacious and very reasonably priced for our stay of 7 nights. Can't wait to go back!

The apartment itself was clean, nicely decorated and well equipped. It only had a microwave (I thought it was going to be a combi oven), but the kettle toaster and hob along with the Barbecue outside were perfectly adequate. The view from our studio apartment was lovely, we looked out over the pool to the marina below. It was a... More

We stayed at the Sunlit Waters for a few nights at the beginning of April. The rooms are clean-fairly basic but have everything you need with good facilities. Stuart, the owner, is so helpful-he picked us up from/dropped us back to the marina, sorted a boat trip for us and has great local knowledge. Would stay here again.

This was our third stay at Sunlit Waters and we would not consider staying anywhere else. It has a briiliant location, gorgeous views, is spotlessly clean and the studios have everything you could want. And to top it off, Stuart is a fabulous host. We'll be back......

The views from Sunlit waters are incredible, sitting on your own balcony or swimming in the pool overlooking Abel Point Marina and the turquoise waters beyond. The rooms are brilliant with en suite bathroom and kitchenette, TV etc. Stuart the owner was extremely helpful, picking us up from our bus stop and also letting us store our luggage when we... More

What can we say: we loved these appartments! After extending our stay upon arrival, we were upgraded to a huge deluxe appartment with a lovely bed and great cooking facilities. I believe all rooms have a balcony offering a breathtaking view over the Bay out to sea, a real suntrap as well. Pool lovely, infinity style again with beautiful bay... More

My family and I, consisting of 3 adults and 2 children stayed in 2 small studios at Sunlit Waters from 2 - 8 March 2014. Lisa, one of the owners was very helpful with information prior to our visit and responded to all my emails quickly. We were warmly welcomed by Stewart, the other owner when we arrived. Our rooms...

Considering this was one of the cheapest options in Airlie Beach, we weren't sure what to expect. However, we needn't have worried. The apartment was lovely, really clean and in great condition. The beds were nice and comfy and the kitchen had everything we needed. The location was great, really central (although it's up quite a steep hill which may... More

I stayed for one night in a small studio and enjoyed much about the environment and stay in Airlie beach. The studio was well equipped and very clean. Outside there is a nice view. 5 minutes to supermarket and Airlie beach lagoon is just nearby. We regret we didn't have much time to spend there but we will surely come... More
