We stayed here for two nights. We found our apartment very clean with a great view. It is very good value for money and not to far from the shops and restuarants. We loved Airlie Beach.

My gf and I simply couldnt say how much we love this place and we definitely think this place is the best out of the budget we could get. We reached this place late at night and the owner waited for us just before he went off for his dinner (around 8pm). When we reach there, we were shocked as... More

I'll start with the good. The apartments are only a short stroll (approx 500m / 5 min) from the main street of Airlie Beach, up a reasonably steep hill (not so far as to be a nuisance). Apartments have ocean/mountain views, room was clean and tidy, and nice seating area on balcony for relaxing with a drink or good book.... More

The owners were very friendly and helpful, the apartments are impeccable, spacious and furnished with resort style furniture and amazingly the rates were the best in Airlie Beach. the location is perfect just a 5 minute walk up a slight hill but the view is spectactular, we...

Stuart and his wife should be congratulated on the superb accommodation and services they offer. I have never seen such excellent standards of cleanliness both inside the apartment and outside in the grounds. The beds were very comfortable and the linen immaculate. It is the best value for money in Airlie Beach, and I am glad a friend recommended them... More

Great self-catering appartments, clean and well maintained, run by Stuart and Lisa who not only do an excellent job in providing facilities and services for their guests but who also became part of our stay in Airle Beach. I couldn't recommend Sunlit Waters highly enough, if you're looking for quality accommodation 5 minutes walk from the amenities of Airle Beach,... More

Good size, clean, tidy and comfortable rooms. Pool size not massive but certainly adequate for the apartments. Pleasant and helpful owners. Free wireless internet. At the top of a hill but it is still only a 5 - 10 minutes walk from the centre of town. A busy road below but it wasn't really noticeable at night.

Stayed for 3 nights split around a sailing trip around the Whitsundays. Sunlit Waters provided excellent value, it was clean, well equipped and comfortable. The steep hill up to the accomodation from Airlie Beach would not be suitable for those who struggle whic such things but we found it a good way to walk off the food and drink we'd... More

What a great place to stay! Perfect as a base for exploring the Withsundays! Good location with a great view of the harbour, just a 3 minute walk to the main strip with all the bars, restaurants and shops. The owner drove us from and too the busstation and helped us booking the trips. The rooms are perfect for what... More

This place is probably the best value for money you could find in Airlie. The rooms are nice with a nice kitchen and bathroom. We used the communal bbq as well, the manager was helpful with getting it started for us. The pool was nice too, it was a quiet stay so had most of the pool use to ourselves.... More
