“Holiday in paradise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

We recently spent 11 nights at Sea Star as a "2nd Honeymoon" for our 30th anniversary. It was beyond anything we could have hoped for. The apartment was extremely clean and comfortable, and the view out over the sea and marina was simply stunning. The management team were very friendly and helpful. We have never had a holiday where we felt so relaxed and "at home". We had previously been disappointed by accomodation we had booked online as often the web page is very different to the reality, however in this instance, the Reailty was even better than the website! We have already been telling our friends that this is the place to stay when visiting Airlie Beach and we hope to be returning there many times in the future.

We stayed here in the October school holidays for 4 nights and found the apartment spacious, clean with a very good layour for our family. The hosts were incredibly helpful right from the time we made our booking - which we changed before arriving - and offered as much information as we needed. We had already booked our activities, but they had useful tips about restaurants, walks, local shopping etc. I's stay here again as would everyone in our family - the children loved the pool and we loved the view. Thank you

What a week! We arrived at Sea Star and were welcomed in with smiling faces. Our room was ready and we were able to walk straight in. It was already opened up and ready for us to sit down on the balcony and admire the view! And what a view!!
A short stroll into Airlie where there is heaps of fun things to do (I recommend Denmans Cellars) and a healthy stroll uphill when you're ready to come home. The pool was glorious after a hot day in the sun and the spa was a nice way to see in the evening.
Julie and Alan were phenomenal! Giving fabulous advice and being super helpful with our millions of questions.
Will certainly be going back again and again! Perfect holiday destination :) :)

We have just returned from a wonderful relaxing 7 night holiday at Sea Star Apartments in Airlie Beach. The apartment was spacious, spotlessly clean and offers the most amazing views.

Julie and Alan the hosts were most helpful during our stay but best of all gave us the privacy we needed to relax. Julie also arranged for us a wonderful trip to the Great Barrier reef which was a definite tick for the 'bucket list'

We will be recommending Sea Star to family and friends and would love to return again if we can.
Don't worry about the walk up the hill - it is great for fitness or if you don't have a hire car there is a good taxi service available!

I will never stay in this hotel again, nor will i ever recommend it to anyone! The Managers are incredibly rude and if you are young, look out you will be targeted right from the second you drive in the driveway. I travelled with my partner and my sister and her partner and 2 friends (all 21 and under) from the minute we got their we were hassled as to "what our intentions were while staying in airlie" I simply replied that we were there to relax, none of us were there to cause any problems, nor were we ever loud or rude to anyone, we never broke the rules once, but were treated with the worst customer service and made to feel like we werent welcome. After checking in at 2pm we were phoned 4 times by the managers with requests and demands. This became beyond annoying as we just wanted to relax. I can now understand why the accomodation was so cheap, simply because of the treatment you recieve. I will never stay here again and I will never recommend this hotel to anyone, it was simply the worst holiday ever!

Hi Leanda,
It is our standard procedure when checking all guests in to ask if they have anything planned during their stay, as after living here for over 7 years, we can offer advice based on our personal experiences and offer a booking service for all the popular local tours, to the Reef, Islands, sight seeing etc…

We take pleasure in doing the utmost possible to accommodate all our guests needs and comforts for an enjoyable experience. I only recall ringing you 3 times. Once in regards to a car parked outside overnight and the other two regarding the trip I was organising for you all on Ocean Rafting.

It is a pity that you appear to have misinterpreted or misunderstood our intentions towards you during your stay. We therefore offer our apologies if we contributed to this in any way.

We stayed for 3 nights in a wonderful 2 bed room apartment. Before we arrived Julie, the owner, organized us transfer from the airport as well as some snorkeling tours. She was really nice and helped us to plan our trip. The apartment was perfectly clean and provided everything we needed. The view from the balcony was just amazing!!! After one day at the Sea Star Apartment we decided to come back to enjoy this lovely place more than only 3 nights. We have already booked our next trip for January and we are really looking forward to come back. Thanks to Julie & Alan for this great place! Andrea & Sascha

We stayed here for 5 nights in September. Yes these apartments are up a steep hill but so are most places in Airlie Beach. The views were magnificent and the apartment was well set out. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The infinity pool was amazing. Would definitely visit again.
