Before booking I did some research in TripAvisor and found some mixed reviews, since they had a promotion were you pay 3 and stay for nights for $344 I decided to give it a try. I can confirm what many reviewers said: Pros: - The apartments are very new, a very good bathroom, small kitchen - free wifi (that does... More

Recently I have spent 4 days in Sunlitwaters apartments with my wife and children and I would say it´s a fantastic place to stay in Airlie Beach. I would recommend to all my friends and family if they will go to Airlie Beach. Pros: - Lisa and Stuart, the couple running the place, were always very kind, help us with... More

For inexpensive, clean, spectacular sunsets and a gorgeous view of the Marina Sunlit Waters provides it all. For my husbands first trip to Airlie it was the perfect place to stay. The owners were so friendly and helpful. The only shortfall to our stay was that the internet was unavailable but that was apparently due to the ISP doing work... More

Located just a short distance from the main stripso very convenient for going out although it is a bit of a hill climb. Hosts were very helpful with planning our tours and confirming airport shuttle pick ups. The pool has amazing views too. The bed was a little bit springy but overall still a great place to stay.

These studios are great: nice size, good bed, decent kitchen, super clean and well maintained, good linens & towels, A/C, wi-fi, TV. Easy walk to the main street & free parking. The property is located on top of the hill with amazing views of the bay/inlet, and perfectly staged for watching sunset. Small pool is a nice place to relax,... More

Therefore it can seem expensive but wot a view which made it amde worthwhile - swimming in the small pool was just amzing - an oasis of tranquality. Airlie Beach was just an amazing location and Sunlit waters was... More

We spent a week in Airlie Beach back in December 2011, at Sunlit Waters. The room was great, very clean, had everything you needed for a nice stay. We enjoyed the pool and the views from the balcony. Lisa and Stuart, the couple running the place, were always very helpful. Even though all the rooms on the property seemed to... More

Stuart and Lisa couldn't have been more helpful, picking up us and our large suitcases straight from Abel Point Marina. The photos on the website don't do the rooms justice, they are immaculately clean and more spacious than we expected. It was very quiet and it really is a convenient walk into town. We had lovely views over the marina... More

Run by a lovely couple who couldn't do more to help us (organise and book transfers, light the barbeque, lend books) in a lovely setting overlooking the harbour. Short walk down hill to the main street... close enough to wander down but far enough away to not be noisy. Lovely clean pool cleaned daily, plenty of outdoor seating and even... More
