We stayed 4 nights at Bush village and had a thoroughly good time. We had one of the renovated semi-detached cabins which have very good through ventilation so in fact there is no need for the AC. The cabin is spotlessly clean and well equipped, the bed is firm but good. The bathroom is fine, too, only the lack of a dividing wall to the shower is a little impractical. You can have breakfast or dinner outside on the terrace which is shared with your direct neighbours. Again, there is no privacy, so you are at the mercy of your neighbours - we were very lucky in this respect. The WiFi does not extend to the cabins, so you have to walk up to reception to go online. The owner Bryan was very helpful and gave us good, honest tips.
The cabins are arranged along a driveway where private cars are not allowed (taxis drive up, though) so the overall ambience is very quiet and the vegetation lush. Very colourful birdlife, too.
Bush Village is out of town, which is actually a good thing because Airlie Beach town centre is certainly not everybody's cup of tea. It is a very quiet and relaxing place to return to after a day's "excitement" in Airlie Beach. The beautiful walk into town along the boardwalk is a sightseeing tip in itself, however it takes a good half hour and, because the scenery is so wonderful, it will normally take you much longer. There is a Coles supermarket and an excellent Noodle & Rice Asian take-away only 5 mins on foot in the other direction. There is also a pub at the end of the mall which is best avoided however - expensive, disappointing food, terrible beer.
