This place is priced only a few bucks over backpackers private room rates but is probably the best self contained apartment I've ever stayed in. Your a fool not to stay here. 5 min walk to the main street in Airlie too.

Compact self contained apartment, only a double bed however. Everything clean and modern. The units each have a balcony (but it is in the shared walkway) that overlooks the marina. There is a pool and a larger balcony common area. The host was very pleasant and helpful. We only stayed one night but this would be a good base for...

We stayed here for be night but wished it could've been longer. The rooms are really well equipped and have great views over Abel Point Marina. A lot of effort clearly goes in to maintaining everything at a high standard and the owners go out of their way to be helpful. A couple of tips from them turned an awkward...

We have stayed at Sunlit Waters from 18th till 20th december and regret we didn't have more time. We were amazed when we entered our room. The view, swimming pool overlooking the marina and fully equipped kitchen. Rooms were very nice and good shower. Great value for your money. The hill up is not that bad, takes only 2 min...

This place was very nice and so clean! The staff was very friendly and helpful. They picked us up at the Greyhound stop. The day we left they stored our luggage and brought it to our place of choice. It's located very close to the centre and the harbour, but it's very uphill. If you prefer to walk it takes...

We come out to Airlie Beach, from Brisbane. We stayed 5 nights. The apartments were pretty nice and the pool area was great. We really liked the owner, Stewart. He took care of everyting for us and was really fun to talk with. We also booked our excursions through Stewart, Skydiving, Ocean Rafting and Great Barrier Reef. All in all...

Australians have to be some of the most welcoming and accommodating people on the face of the earth. Nowhere is this more apparent than at the Sunlit Waters hotel in Airlie Beach. The owners are extraordinary people, and the hotel is beyond what you might expect. The views of Abel Point Marina and beyond are simply beautiful. The rooms are...
