“Great view and value”
Reviewed October 1, 2013 via mobile

Nice, clean rooms, great view. Close to everything but far enough away to relax. Owners were friendly and helpful, saying hi and asking about day when they saw us, without being overly intrusive. Small studio was on the small side for 3, a couple and a single if you wanted to relax there but ideal for couples or for a base for daily activities. Small kitchenette had bar fridge, two hot plates, microwave, and all the utensils needed. Will stay again, when in town with g/f or need a base for daily activities.

Stayed September 2013, traveled with friends

Sunlit waters is a fantastic place to stay when visiting Airlie Beach.
Great view, great pool, lovely rooms and lovely owners who are more than accommodating. Their positioning on the top of the hill makes for a great view of the marina and an even better view of the sunset. Highly recommend!

Very good experience at Sunlit waters apartments, thanks Lisa !
Nothing to complain about except maybe the location at the top of the hill! quite difficult at first with a stroller, but good for health.
With 2 young kids, we spent many hours at Airlie Beach lagoon so we did not try the swimming pool at the hotel.
4+3 dollars for use of the laundry machine and dryer 5 meters away from the bedroom, that's correct.
Rooms well equipped and clean, reasonable price.
In conclusion, wonderful place for a holiday!!

Room Tip: Considering the small price difference between all bedrooms, take the largest one

Everything you need & nothing you don't. Good price, good location & the hill is not that bad if you have reasonable fitness. Nice & casual with a good view & a nice pool. They are doing ground work at the bottom of the hill but its nothing to worry about.

Stuart and Lisa were great hosts. They were more than helpful and very welcoming for our first visit to Australia. We didn't have a reservation and were welcomed with open arms. The apartment was great, we cooked on the BBQ every night and took pleasure in just relaxing on the balcony with the beautiful view. The walk to the Main Street is less than 5 mins, we did it every day. The hill is steep but good for a workout to wear off the extra calories taken on while on holidays! We had a fantastic experience for a great price. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely return. Bill and Elaine

Room Tip: All the rooms are good, have a great view.

Very accommodating staff who held onto our luggage while we spent a day and night on a boat. Rooms are spacious and clean. There is a fantastic view of the harbour. If you (and your vehicle) can handle the steep climb to the top of the hill then this place is for you.
