Fantastic location, rooms were clean and tidy and comfortable. Beautiful view and above ground pool was alot of fun with kids (making whirl pools, which you simply cant do in a big pool). Staff were super friendly and made to feel like home.

This is the only time I have booked somwhere without seeing it first and I will never do it again! 10 cockroach baits in the wardrobe, dirty floors and kitchen, mould all over bathroom. Once I saw the state of the room I walked out, and checked into another hotel... Guy was understanding, but being last minute I still had... More

Stayed two nights in a 2 bedroom ocean view unit. Shame there was no supervisor or owner on property. Guests parked their cars in garden not carpark. This place just needs a little extra attention to make it top notch. I would stay again. Second bedroom just a long narrow room, two single beds end to end with no fittings,... More

We stayed here for a week. My husband, myself and 14 year old son. The beach is lovely relaxing entertainment. On the right tide you can see amazing beach side creatures. Walk to the local Chinese restaurant. Is on the local town bus service route. Fishing was also easy to do off the rocks near by and some great walking... More

I have recently stayed at this establishment. The only advise I can offer is that if you are looking for a bare minimum basic accommodation, then you can’t go wrong. Honestly I was surprised at how basic this room was, considering it being such a tourist location. It is functional, but do not expect any creature comforts. I would look... More

We spent a beautiful week last August 2012; the place is really peaceful, just in front of the beach; the swimminpool was closed but it was so lovely to watch so many different types of birds coming in the afternoon drinking water, they made an authentical "aussie" concert! George, the staff manager, was very kind and helpful and we really... More

My studio room was clean and reasonably comfortable and roomy and up to my expectations for the price paid. The view to the beach is mainly obstructed though by the tropical vegetation. I would rate the rooms as 3 and a half star. Comfortable bed, quiet location, but the beach itself was a big disappointment. The property too is quite... More

I chose to stay as I wanted to be close to the beach to relax after work while I had business in Bowen. Phil was very helpful and accommodating with anything I needed. I am booking in to stay there on my return trip next week.

While planning our family roadtrip I contacted Phil about his accomodation in Airlie Beach and Bowen. He was so helpful and gave us some really useful advice about our trip. We decided to book his beach front apartment for 4 nights in Bowen. The unit was lovely, very clean and comfortable, beautiful grounds and right on the beach front. It... More

Booked in for 2 nights, arrived after dark on first night. Next morning went to take kids for a swim in the pool, only to find it was unsafe. Above ground pool, timber missing from decks, frames holding pool were rusted, water in pool really dirty. Spoke to manager and checked out going to the Caravan park close by where... More
