We stayed at the Boathouse from March 17 to 21st, 2012 with our teenage son as the last stop on our 2 week Australian trip and we couldn't have been happier with our choice. We stayed in a 2 bedroom two bathroom condo which we booked directly on th hotel's website. First of all, the accommodations are brand new, luxurious, modern, well equipped, spacious with a beautiful view over the water, all the necessary comforts including a washer, dryer, diswasher, a
beautiful terrace with outdoor furniture, even internet was available for a nominal fee unlike everywhere else in Australia. The pool and BBQ area were beautiful as well. There is a cafe, restaurants, a few stores as well as a bottle shop with the biggest selection of beer from around the world we have ever seen right on the main level of the property. Keep in mind the bottle shops on the main street in Airlie beach offer better deals but the convenience of having one practically inside the hotel was great.
The location was excellent, walking distance to the lagoon, shops and restaurants. For higher end dining you should try the restaurant in Peppers up on the hill. I believe it is called 'Tides'.
They offer a free shuttle service. They will come and pick you up from The Boathouse and bring you back after dinner. We had dinner there twice and absolutely loved it.
The apartments are not cleaned daily as this is not a typical hotel but the kitchen garbage was removed daily and that was fine with us.
People say you go to Airlie beach to use it as a base for exploring the Whitsundays and it doesn't matter where you stay. But we were so glad we stayed at the Boathouse with all its comforts considering for the five days we were there it didn't stop raining, pouring actually, we never saw the sun and what we saw of the Whitsundays didn't do them justice in the rain and wind. It was so bad they had to close the airport on the mainland due to flooding and we had to fly to Sydney from Hamilton Island.
We wholeheartedly recommend this property and we'll gladly stay there again even in good weather.

Room Tip: Top floor (3rd) with a view over the water.

I am so pleased that we impressed you with our very new, modern and spacious 2 bedroom Self Contained Apartments and our Resort Facilities. Our location, as you mentioned, is also perfect as everything that Airlie Beach has to offer is within walking distance; yet without the hustle and bustle of being in the centre of town. We look forward to welcoming you and your family back to the Boathouse Apartments by Outrigger soon.

This was our third stay in Airlie Beach and definitely our best. We had a 4 night stay in a 2 bedder through Cudo. Apartments are spacious with a well appointed kitchen containing everything required for self catering, but there are eat out options below including a Coffee Club. There is also the option to eat out on the balcony or at the dining table. Comfortable furnishings and shutters in the master bedroom sufficient to block out early morning sun. Each apartment has a view of the marina and depending on the level, a view to the ocean. It is an easy flat walk to Airlie town centre and if no car about a 15 minute walk to the IGA supermarket, but there is also bus transport quite nearby. There is only one negative and that would be if there were noisy neighbours on the balcony and we only experienced that one evening and it wasn't late.

Thank you for your positive feedback regarding our 2 Bedroom Apartments. Thglad to hear your thoughts on them felt like "a home away from home" with everything you need for a comfortable and pleasant stay here in the Whitsundays.
At this Outrigger property we do have a ‘No Party Policy’ in place to avoid loud noise interrupting other guests choosing to relax on their balconies and in their rooms, so I do apologise for any inconvenience that the noise may have caused.
We hope that this did not hinder your stay or experience as we would love to welcome you back to the Boathouse Apartments by Outrigger.

Book a 2 bedroom apartment on wotif for its location. My grandma is 80 year old so I just considered not to let her climb the hill. No warm welcome at the reception only see two girls are gossiping. Quick check in processing, laugh at us, no greeting.The room is stylish but the space and view is not amazing as the harbour lights we have lived in cairns. The room service will apply additional charge,sounds ridiculous.when I tried to book a taxi ,the staff at the reception told me the taxi is more expensive and would not be on time so she forced me to book airport transfer but did anyone else share their taxi experience to me? Now I know why this big and luxury hotel always has discounts online to attract the guests.the accommodation on the hills have more alluring price and comfortable accommodation than it.

Thank you for your feedback and review although I am disappointed that your guest service you received and general "feel" about the view and the property was less than expected.
I have reminded the resort staff about greeting everyone accordingly as the feedback to date has been nothing but glowing on the staff's guest service and I apologise if you did not receive a similar greeting.
The other accommodation houses on the hill may have cheaper prices although travellers book this property for the quality apartments and facilities and close proximity to the main street which the other resorts cannot offer.
I am disappointed you did not thouroughly enjoy your stay but thank you for your feedback.

We have just returned from four nights staying at the Boathouse Apartments in Airlie Beach.

The apartment was nothing short of amazing. The complex is very new, rooms are well appointed and all have beautiful views out to the Marina (and sea further in the distance).

The apartments are a short walk to the main street of Airlie Beach but far enough away to escape from the hustle bustle.

We highly recommend these apartments to those wanting a luxury getaway at a very reasonable price!

Gorgeous first class apartments. We rented a 3 bedroom apartment with the main bedroom and living area overlooking the marina. Fantastic views and fully equipped with everything you needed. Very short walk to the main area of town, however the on site Morroccan themed restaurant was perfect for dinner. The on site shops had the friendliest staff and were very reasonably priced. Only minor fault would be the two other bedrooms and their lack of views, but I guess something has to give. For the price for 5 people and the luxury it provided, hard to beat.

Thank you very much for taking the time to post your review and so pleased to hear your positive comments on the apartment & restaurants within the building.
I wish all the bedrooms could face the ocean and happy that even without this view on each bedroom your holiday was still an enjoyable one.
I look forward to welcoming you and your family back to the Boathouse by Outrigger during your next trip to Airlie Beach.
