We stayed for just one night and the apartment was everything that we needed. A very good size, very clean, well equipped and tea and coffee too. The views over Abel Point Marina are lovely, nice table and chairs outside the apartment to enjoy the views from. Yes the apartment is up a hill from Airlie Beach but you don't... More

We were in a great studio with 3 beds (one double and one single). The shower room is quite big and very clean and there is a little kitchen with everything provided to cook. The staff was very friendly ! We were traveling on the east coast during one month and this accommodation had the best ratio quality/price !

Rooms and the whole place was very clean. Just a short walk to the main city and it was nice and peaceful at night. Being on top of a hill the views where excellent at anytime of the day. Stuart was an excellent host and we really enjoyed our stay. We will be back if we go back to airlie... More

We highly recommend Sunlit Waters. Exceptional accommodation very clean and well maintained. Close to central Airlie Beach Stuart (owner) will book all your tour requirements making for an enjoyable and relaxed holiday. Sunset on the deck after a refreshing swim in the lovely pool a must. Definitely staying again.

Loved our 2 night stay at Sunlit Waters earlier this week. There were 3 couples and we were made feel very welcome from the time we arrived. 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.
