“Closest high quality to Main Street ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2014 via mobile

Excellent accom for single or couple. Don't be tricked by those that may offer higher view or bigger advertisements. The walk to most other accom is a killer. This is an easy walk. In a pub for dinner and drinks. In motel room in 3 minutes. Great hospitality. Faultless room. Worked on laptop on patio unobstructed and enjoyed that view. Easy access to walking tracks waterfront in morning. Well done to owner. I feel lucky to have found.

We spent a couple of nights in the 1 bedroom apartment which was perfect for our needs. The apartment was clean and equipped with everything we needed. Nice bathroom with a strong, hot shower and best wifi connection we have experienced so far in Australia.

The apartments are located just a short walk from the Esplanade but far enough to barely hear the noise at night. Bill is fantastic - really friendly and always willing to help with any questions. He gave us a map and recommended plenty of local places as soon as we arrived plus he provides help in booking all activities and excursions. He also let us leave our car with him for our sailing adventure which we really appreciate as we had complete peace of mind it would be fine.

The view from the apartment was beautiful, it was just a shame that the sun did not come out in the 2 nights we stayed as that would have made it even better. Nonetheless, it was wonderful having dinner with a glass of wine on the balcony.

A brilliant stay and highly recommended :)

This apartment hotel is great. The location, the facilities, the service and so on. You can see the views for yourself in the pictures (perfect views of beautiful Airlie). Close to everything. We had a one bedroom apartment which we found was perfect for us. Clean and with new furniture. Lovely terrace. A fully equipped kitchen. No dishwasher, but that didn't bother us. There is a laundry room at the premises. Since we had an apartment there was no extra cleaning the week we were there, but we were offered new bed linen and towels, and we appreciated the feeling of taking care of ourselves, feeling like it was "our" apartment. Everything was just the way we wanted it. Bill, the manager, is great. He is one of the most dedicated managers I've met. He's very hospitable and concerned about every guest's stay and helps you with everything you need, such as booking excursions and so on.

Room Tip: Apartment 1, 2 and rooms 3 and 4 have the best views!

We stayed in self contained apartment. We found the apartment a little small and wished we had booked one of the larger ones. It is clean enough, although we did have a cockroach. The wifi connection was very poor in our room. Large balcony with a good view of Airlie Beach.

It is also quite close to a few bars in the main strip of Airlie Beach that played loud music. It was not too bad but something to be wary of.

The owner, Bill, is a very nice guy and very hospitable.

Overall this is decent value but prefer an actual apartment with the space that brings as opposed to what is essentially a hotel room with a sink and hob. We felt a little confined as we neither had the space of an apartment nor the complex of a hotel. Our recommendations would be to stay on one of the Whitsunday Islands themselves (Daydream or Hamiltion)

The appartment has all you need for a stay and a beautifull view. I is self contained (which in the Australian lingo appears to mean only ocasional servicing). The owner is very friendly and helpfull. The place is close to the esplanade - where everything happens and everything you may need is. It is also close to several sources of major noise (loud music) but that handled by closing the terrase windows and using the good airconditioner.
The appartment is inexpensive by the local standards and excellent for short stay (for a longer stay the dishwasher and the wash machine would be missed).

Good size one bedroom appartment with large balcony and tremendous view overlooking Airlie Beach. Kitchen facilities for self-catering, also near to shops, pubs and restaurants. Manager Bill couldn't be more helpful, makes the stay relaxing.
