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.

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!
