Considering this was one of the cheapest options in Airlie Beach, we weren't sure what to expect. However, we needn't have worried. The apartment was lovely, really clean and in great condition. The beds were nice and comfy and the kitchen had everything we needed. The location was great, really central (although it's up quite a steep hill which may cause problems for some). We had a great view of the harbour from our room and from the pool.
Unfortunately we managed to time our stay with a cyclone, however Stuart looked after us really well. He drove us to the supermarket so we wouldn't have to go out in the rain, lent us rain coats, and when the power went in the evening (it went in the whole area due to the cyclone), lent us a lamp and a gas burner so we could cook our food.
The only thing I would improve would be the cancellation policy. We were pre-warned about the cyclone and were considering cancelling our trip to Airlie Beach, however as it was within 7 days we wouldn't get any money back, so we decided to go anyway. I guess this is understandable though as it's a small operation.
Overall I think you would struggle to find a nicer place to stay in Airlie Beach, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone going there.
