“Fantastic Apartments”
Reviewed 26 February 2013

We stayed here with another couple for a 3 night holiday in a 2 bedroom apartment. I couldn't fault the location as it was 200m walk to town (on the flat) and had lots of dining options downstairs too. All apartments have water views and are extremely cool even when it isn't outside. Nice big bathrooms, comfy beds and even the kitchen is well stocked with Miele appliances. Spotlessly clean. Great pool area. We will definitely visit again.

It is big complex area, located bit far from town centre. I guess it is the biggest hotel @ Airlie beach. Not like Water Edge Resort, Boathouse is more like big modern area with a range of accommodations.
We were staying at 3 bedrooms apt, the main bedroom is ensuite with the bathroom. The bathtub is quite impressive with a shape of rectangle and the size is quite large!
The only disadvantage of the main bedroom is the poor sound proof. Because it is connected with the living room, the only divider between bedroom and living room is a thin slicing door. Whenever my friend walked into the living room, I can hear it clearly!

Moreover, this hotel has a windbell at some where, sound like a ghost whispering at night, it is very disturbing to my boyfriend!!!!

Other than that, apt is quite cozy and comfy.
The living room are separated with the dinning room!
I love the ocean view from the balcony. So relaxing to see the cruise went out in the morning and came back in the afternoon.

It has a cleaning lady came and collected our trash.

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay at the Boathouse Apartments By Outrigger. We are pleased that you found almost everything to your liking.
The ghostly noise you are refering to, was possibly the wind gusting through the yachts in the marina.
Thank you again, and we look forward to welcoming you back to the Boathouse Apartments By Outrigger in the near future.

we have stayed at airlie many times over the last 30 years. theres been a lot of developments, but this is definitly the pick at the moment. very modern, top quality complete appartments. you could easily live here, and many people do, so rental accom is limited. of note there is secure undercover parking, and foxtel with several channels. our 2 bed unit had 2 bathrooms, the master has a shower over bath, and marina views from the ensuite as well as the bedroom etc. there was a decent size verandah with dining table, as well as a full size dining room inside. we did not book, but rather had stopped for coffee on the marina boardwalk, and then enquired about a room. one was available at a fair price, and we are glad we stayed. positive is that its close to the main street, and not on the side of a cliff, negative is that views are limited somewhat to the marina, but to get far reaching views you would need to be up on the cliff. the photos already here are exactly correct, which is a refreshing change !

Room Tip: all apartments face the marina, just a matter of choosing how many bedrooms you need.

We were actually staying at another place but after having a look at one of these luxurious rooms with a view to die for...we forfeited our money at the other place and spent 1 glorious day and night seeing how the other half live. It was just lovely sitting outside on the balcony overlooking the Marina drinking champagne and watching the yachts come and go. There is a Coffee Club, Beer Bar and Moroccan Restaurant downstairs, and only a short walk into town. The rooms are beautiful and although quite expensive, it sleeps 4 and is still the same price, so if you share with another couple it makes the price quite reasonable. We were lucky and got the room at low season price. Highly recommend, we didn't want to leave.

Our two bedroom apartment was beautifully furnished, clean and extremely comfortable with balcony overlooking beautiful views over the point. Cafe and shops on the complex and a short walk to the hub of Airlie beach - perfect. The pool and ground/ gardens kept beautifully.

Room Tip: All perfect

This was our second stay here - and once again we enjoyed the whole experience. The apartments are modern, clean and have everything you could possibly need during a holiday. I love the setting - pool, views from every apartment, cafes and restaurants on the lower levels - and all within a couple of minutes LEVEL walk to Airlie Beach itself. The pool area is fantastic, our two small children couldn't get enough of it. There is also a lovely play area as well as a tennis court.
Everything is well designed and there is enough space for you not to feel crowded. I especially enjoyed the peace and quiet! This is a great place to relax and enjoy the luxurious setting, as well as having enough to do close by for children as well as for adults. We'll be back in a few weeks to stay a whole week. Can't wait!

Room Tip: All rooms have ocean views!

Our two bedroom/two bathroom "condo" was simply perfection. Beautifully decorated, amazing views, totally stocked, and wonderfully maintained. The complex has a beautiful pool and jacuzzi, as well as some terrific restaurants and a fantastic coffee bar. The staff was also so kind and courteous (especially Liz and Katie). Don't miss the little used, but pristine beach just behind the hill past the boatyard! The best part is the location -- just a short walk into town, but with no noise from the partying crowds (and the resort ensures a "no party" policy, so it's nice and quiet after 10PM!)

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the wing opposite from the restaurant side of the resort - quiet and a shorter wal...
