this was the best Hotel we´d ever stayed, from the beginning on, such friendly hosts, the did everything for us, took their time and and and, then the appartment itself, our mouth was open a few seconds, what a view.......over the ocean, in front of us a tree with kakadus, the bedroom with view to the ocean and bight of airlie beach, the living room a drean, we just can recommend this appartment fr everybody, the pool was refreshing too after a long day on the ocean or in the air - laugh - skydive, try it! we had honestly tears in our eyes when we had to leave and hope to be there very soon again!!! thanks fr everything!!! Frank and Marietta, from the 20 th to the 27 th of march 2013

My family and I have just come back from a wonderful holiday at sea star apartments, which I would highly recommend. The view is amazing, and worth the short walk up the hill. Taxi fares are quite cheap and are about $8 if you don't want to walk. Julie is such a lovely person and very helpful with tours etc., nothing is too much trouble. The apartments have everything you need and are very clean and spacious. We stayed for 2 weeks and loved every minute of it. We would definately come back. Thanks Julie and Alan for a wonderful holiday!

Is really close to all the shops and big mall, the Prosperine airport is just in an half an hour drive, i will recommend he Great Barrier Reef, Whitsunday Island and don`t forget Airlie Beach SkyDive, just awesome!!

I will highly recommend this amazing place. Unbelievable view, spacious apartments. easy access, you have to walk up the hill to get there and see this view, but I wouldn't see it as a disadvantage but see it as an experience. 7 minutes walk and you are there. We stayed there for for nights and we loved it so much that we decided to extend our stay one more night. Pool is great, with spa, BBQ area. The apartments are fully furnished, with washing machine, and even washing powder. Spotless.! It is not necessary to organize the pick up by Sea star apartments.Because it costs $15 pp and you can actually catch a taxi from Airlie Beach marina and get there for $7.

Thank you for taking the time out to write a review on TripAdvisor. We are glad you had such a great experience. We offer a door to door coach service from the Proserpine Airport to Sea Star for $15 per person each way. When travelling from Hamilton Island to Airlie Beach, the ferry arrives at either Shute Harbour or Abel Point Marina and you are correct, the taxi should only be between $7 - $10 from Abel Point Marina to us here.

Stayed here in November 2011 as we made our way up the coast. The room was quite nice if a little dated, doesn't matter much as you're in a beautiful location and shouldn't be spending all day inside. The pool was, like the rooms, nice but very dated. The property seemed as though it hadn't had a good going over since the early nineties. The biggest issue with the place was the bugs. Stayed in plenty of places with comparable pricing up and down the coast without having to combat cockroaches (and geckos come to think of it) in the showers and swarms of ants in the kitchens. When I brought it up at the front desk I received a scowl and a 'Welcome to the tropics'... I understand there's a lot of creepy-crawlies in Australia but as I mentioned before, there were a lot of other places around without this issue. If you need a base camp in Airlie beach, this is a great way to sleep a lot of people in a comfortable atmosphere. If you're looking to stay a while and actually get some use of the apartment you may want to look elsewhere.

Thank you for your review on TripAdvisor. It was unfortunate that you had an encounter with the natural wildlife. Gheckos are very common and impossible to control, they can get in through the smallest of spaces and Cockroaches can in fact fly. Hence all our apartments have insect screens fitted to all windows and sliding doors. Ants are abundant in dry tropical areas and are also hunting out moisture. We outline the ant problem in your arrival letter and try to encourage guests to get rid of their rubbish and not leave food on the benches. We undertake regular inspections of all our apartments for uninvited guests and carry out an extensive eradication by professional pest controllers annually at the start of each summer.
As Resident Managers we work hard at maintaining clean, quiet and comfortable conditions for all our guests and appreciate any feedback.

We booked a 3 bedroom apartment with beautiful views. The apartment was clean and well equiped and we really enjoyed our stay during December 2012. We were welcomed by Julie amd Alan and they were very helpful. I would definately stay there again and would recommend for sure.
