“Beautiful Bush Village”
Reviewed June 18, 2013 via mobile

My partner and I stayed at Bush Village for 6 nights in total whilst we visited the whitsundays. We really felt at home here, it has a chilled out vibe which was perfect for us and was so quiet... A contrast to the busy and noisy main strip of Airlie. This isn't a party hostel but that's not intended and its perfect for anyone wanting a more relaxed accommodation.

Bush village is a 20 minute walk from Airlie central and the lagoon but its along a really pretty boardwalk and we saw lots of sunsets walking home. It's ideally located minutes from a Coles/butcher/bottle shop.

Bryan and Jude were perfect hosts. Bryan kindly sorted our boat trip (with isail... Was perfect) for us as well as recommending other great activities for us. Jude also leant us some BBQ tools for our outdoor BBQ along the boardwalk. They really couldn't have been more accommodating.

Bush village really is one of the loveliest places we've stayed!

Thanks Bryan and Jude for creating such a homely atmosphere.

Katherine and Jason

Hey thanks guys,your too kind.It is a great spot we have here and I think being away from the centre of town is a good thing and yes the boardwalk into Airlie is fantastic.Both Jude and myself appreciate you enjoying your stay and we do like to make you feel welcomed and homely as opposed to just another number.
Thanks again and happy travelling
Cheers

My fiancé and I stayed here a couple of nights while visiting the Whitsundays. I loved this hostel! The rooms were clean and had everything we needed! The surrounding outdoor areas were lovely and the place was quiet and comfortable. The owners were very friendly and were kind enough to keep some of our groceries while we went camping. I loved staying here and would pick it over one of the expensive resorts any day. It is a bit of a walk into the "town" if you are looking for a night out, but it is along the water and is lovely, I enjoyed the walks. There is a also a grocery store right next to the hostel for all of your food needs. We saved lots of money by not going out and making out meals at the hostel!

Wow, thank you. You are right, it is a fantastic walk to town, not too far especially if you over -indulged in some way. The sunset walking back along the boardwalk from town in the afternoon, is just awesome. We are handy to the important shops in Airlie, like Coles, bottle shops, banks & Post Office.
We really love our place for the same reason, the peace & quiet, the birds & everything is close enough to town for a night out. The parks across the road with the ocean & the boardwalk are beautiful, a credit to Whitsunday Council.

Travelling up the East coast this was definitely our favourite place. The atmosphere was chilled out and peaceful and the cabins nestled between the palm trees were lovely. Our room (kingsize) was spacious, clean and welcoming. We had one or two tiny problems (eg door lock sticking) but the haste and humorous manner in which Bryan helped us was fantastic. He could not have been more helpful. The location is a bit further away from the main part of Airlie Beach but we had a car so this wasn't a problem. We wished we could have stayed longer than our two nights there, I got quite attached to our cabin! Already recommended to friends.

Bryan is such a gem. Thank you for your review, we love the place too because it is quiet but close to everything. The birdlife is absolutely amazing and sometimes things happen like doors that stick and the army of ants that come out to clean up after us humans but we still love it here. Thank you again & happy traveling.

Uniquely located in the Australian busghs away from the very busy Airlie Beach. The cabins are not new but newly renovated and you will find there everything you need. The owners are very friendly, you get a homy atmosphere. Its quite far off from the center but the walk to the town is very pitoresque and you will for sure hear some exotic birds when you wake up in the middle of the palm trees, which makes the experience very unique! good value for money.

Location was slightly out of the main airlie beach area but this was perfect for us. Greg and Sandy who were looking after the bush village cabins could not have been more helpful and friendly would recommend bush village. They definitely made it a more enjoyable stay.

It was fluke we picked up this brochure and booked the day we checked in but were blown away, the staff are very friendly, always offering tips and advice on what to do and are more than happy to help you out and give the company a call on your behalf. The room had everything we needed: air-conditioned, big bathroom (although the shower did take a moment or two to get warm), small fridge and kettle. There was also a tv which we didn't even switch on and it was very clean.

There's a really lovely board-walk along the water down to the main bit of Airlie and super close to Able Point Marina which was perfect for us as we went out to the islands on a fair few days. It's only a ten dollar cab fair down to the main part of Airlie as well. There's also a tv room, with wifi access and a lot of the guests hang out up there/watch a movie in the evenings, met some really nice people!

It's a very chilled out place, very comfortable, I could rate it more highly. Bryan thanks for all your help, our stay was like a home-away-from-home, I will without a doubt be staying here again.

Thank you for your wonderful review. We have much to do around the Village but as they say Rome wasn't built in a day. We have so much to learn so the more phone calls we make the more we learn. Thank you for staying at the Bush Village, the perfect place for chilling out. PS Bryan is a gem. Loves a chat

Very friendly staff. Bush Village has nice and clean cabins; a swimming pool, BBQ and fully furnished kitchen available. We've had good tips for Airlie Beach itself and the Whitsunday islands. Good value for money! We booked a trip for the Whitsunday Islands through the office. We stayed for two nights in a twin room cabin. Mind the birds, dogs at the premises. Good location in Airlie, nice walk along the coast line to the centre and Lagoon. Close to city centre.
