For the second week of our trip to Oz, we booked the Portside self catering apartments in Airlie Beach. Having booked our entire trip on the internet, I searched for reviews of Portside but could not find any. However we shouldn’t have worried as Sheryn, the manageress, did everything she could to ensure we had a great stay.
We decided to book an apartment with a Spa and this turned out to be a good decision. At night it was something very special to walk down to the "drive-through" off licence and pick up a couple of bottles of chilled Australian sparkling and lie in the spa and watch the amazing galxy of stars overhead.
The quality of e apartment was exceptionally high, with excellent fittings and furnishings.
The atmosphere at Portside was very relaxed and was within easy walking distance of Airlie beach "high street".
While there we booked two trips with Cruise Whitsunday, one to Whitehaven beach (absolutely truly stunning) and the other to the outer Great Barrier Reef. Sheryn booked both of these and she certainly made a fantastic recommendation. The Whitehaven beach trip aboard Camira, a carbon-fibre catamaran, will last in my memory forever.
If you want a great holiday in a stunning part of the world, book Portside.
