“great view, great hosts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2011

After a very bad motel experience in Airlie Beach, we were lucky enough to find Island View B&B and what a find it was. Steve and Karen were very relaxed, welcoming hosts to their very modern, very clean home with a stunning view over the bay. Very comfortable king size bed and large room added to the experience. Certainly we would highly recommend this property to anyone travelling to Airlie Beach. It's situated high above the main street amongst lush gardens. Loved it! Sue & Rodger, Adelaide

Room Tip: take the slightly more expensive room, $5 extra, it's worth it.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2011

My partner and I spent 5 nights at the b&b last November, the room was spacious and clean, we had a great relaxing stay. The owners were welcoming and friendly and booked our activities for us. The view from the b&b is fantastic, especially from the terrace where breakfast was served. There were DVDs in the lobby area we could borrow, beach towels were provided and we always had the swimming pool to ourselves. Shops & bars/restaurants are about 10 minutes away by foot (you may need a torch if coming home late though) but the centre of Airlie Beach can be quite noisy with music and partying in the main street's bars so it was nice to be in a quiet area. We very much recommend this b&b.

As a party of 4 adults, we got placed in the amazing villa at the Island View B & B, complete with high spec kitchen, huge living and dining room and a balcony to soak in the views of Airlie Beach. Whilst breakfast is not included in this room, the owners very kindly left us a few snacks for breakfast in advance of our tour to the Whitsundays (which they organised for us, and was brilliant)! We had an absolutely amazing stay and didn't want to leave!

I stayed one night in the king bedroom with my boyfriend in February. Steve and Karen were incredibly friendly and helpful.
The room was very clean and modern, and the owners were especially kind when allowing us to leave our bags there once we had checked out, and even use the pool while we waited for the bus to the airport!
Would definitely recommend.

A family run B&B with 5 star service. Easily booked via the internet with good directions to the accomodation. Friendly welcome by the owners who went out of their way to help accommodate our daughter and partner at very short notice. Rooms were spacious, spotless and extremely comfortable with a/c and fan. Breakfast was served on the terrace with a fantastic view. The pool area was a good size with plenty of loungers/chairs and although a family home your space was your own with plenty of privacy. A great place to unwind for a few days, we loved it so much we stayed an extra day!

Island View B&B was really beautiful and the hosts so friendly and helpful in giving information or advices about what I could have done. I wonder if everybody is the same in Australia.
BTW...breakfast was very rich and various.
Thank You!

four of us stayed for two nights in the two bedroom apartment, it was large, modern and had a great large balcony looking out over the islands. it Takes about ten minutes to walk to the nearby restaurants and bars on the sea front.
Steve greeted us as we arrived, gave us good advice on where to eat, we found him very helpful.
An ideal base for the whitsundays.
An adequate continental breakfast.
The pool is in the guest house opposite but only about 30 seconds to walk to.
Our parking was directly outside the apartment.
