The staff (Colleen & John) at Portside Apartments are absolutely the best. They went above and beyond what could reasonably be expected and were totally efficient, pleasant and helpful. Colleen saved us from a disaster when the shuttle bus to the airport failed to arrive. On the other hand John was wonderful as well taking care of anything that required... More

We stayed for five nights and we enjoyed the apartment (no 3) and it could not have been in a better location very close to the shops ands restaurants. It was great to sit out in the evening on the balcony with a drink and watch the yachts come into Airlie Harbour after a day's racing.

We stayed 5 nights in a 1 bedroom apartment with a jacuzzi. The location was fantastic, right near the centre of town and easy walking distance to the Marina where the cruise whitsunday/ transit terminal is to take you to the islands. The staff were absolutely lovely and extremely helpful in every way. Wonderful to have a kitchen so we... More

The view from our apartment was breath taking with a beautiful outdoor pool. The apartments are clean and well maintained, excellent private roof top sauna with a large entertaining area.
