If your after easy walking distance to Airlie and no hills than this place would be for you. We parked the car and didn't have to use it till we left. Restaurants below as well as some clothes shops and only a 2 min walk to the main street. Apartments were spacious and the balcony overlooking the harbour was beautiful. Spa was heated and the pool was refreshing. 5 star!

Thank you for your kind review regarding your stay with us at the Boathouse Apartments.
We also believe that almost everything you need is either here or a very short walk away.
The balconies are a great spot to relax and enjoy the view, but at night guests need to be aware that noise (even people talking and laughing loudly) seems to be amplified around the marina and the other balconies. I am not suggesting don't use them, I am just asking that all our guests be mindful of each other.
My last point was not directed at anyone, just reminding everyone about our No Party Policy, and to be courteous to each other.
Thank you again and hopefully we can welcome you back to the boathouse Apartments in the near future.

We went for our annual holiday again to airlie beach staying at the boathouse as we stayed last year. Once again it is the perfect place to stay as the apartments are lovely and have everything you need. The view is amazing and the pool excellent. All the staff are very good. There is only one thing I would reccommend is the ceiling fans and air conditioning vents need a good clean as very dusty. I know there is work going on but this is not from that it is a build up. I know this is a bit picky but that was my only negative. Other than that well done boathouse you do impress.

Room Tip: Stay on airlie side as very quiet

Thank you for taking the time to review your return visit to the Boathouse Apartments By Outrigger.
I agree with everything you have mentioned in your review apart from the comment that "you were being a bit picky". you, like eveyone that stays at the Boathouse, should expect a clean room in every aspect, so I apologise that you did not, but thankful that it did not detract from your holiday experience.
Thank you again for reviewing your second experience at the boathouse Appartments and we look forward to welcoming you back next year.

On our return visit to the Apartments prior to picking up our sailing charter catamaran we still found the Boathouse provides what we want where we want it. I would confirm what other reviews say about location, set up etc. Nice pool by the way, hard to find in Airlie. This time we were on the first floor, not quite as good views but still pretty nice. The management however appear to be economising on amenities. For example, one (microchipped!) shower towel for two days no problem, but one thin sad hand towel for 2 adults, 2 days and one tiny round soap is a bit mean at these prices. Also any saving is wiped out by all lights, fans and TV left on pending our arrival late afternoon - same in the unoccupied apartment next door 24/7 for the whole time we were there plus the debris from what looked like quite a session on its' verandah. Not that it impinged on us, but not a good look. There is development work going on either side of the Boathouse, and Airlie itself is benefitting from a facelift. Again we didn't find it particularly intrusive. So all that said would we go again? I think so, the location is a big bonus - just take your own soap!

Room Tip: Top floor or any towards the middle

Thank you for taking the time to review your return trip to the Boathouse Apartmernts By Outrigger.
i am pleased that you found most aspects to your liking again.
The linen company that provides us with linen have installed the micro chips so they can monitor our usage and so forth, not so we can monitor guests.
An average stay at the apartments is 2.5 days, so we provide amenities around this.
Extra provisions are given on request at no charge.
The earthworks at the port of Airlie are building a new car park at one end, and the other works are an extension of the boardwalk around the marina.
Thank you again and hopefully we will welcome you back soon to the Boathouse Apartments By Outrigger.

The Boathouse Apartments are only two years old situated at the end of the main strip of Airlie on the new Port of Airlie Marina. Great location with a wonderful outlook over the new Marina. We were on the top floor of 3 and had great views to the Whitsundays. Within the complex is The Coffee Club, Denmans Cafe/Bar and various retail stores. The rooms are modern and airy with lovely fixtures. The apartments face easterly and are air-conditioned with a sizeable balcony outside for entertaining. We stayed in a two bedroom apartment which consists of a King size bed and a Queen size bed, with their own roomy bathrooms. Foxtel, large screen and TV in main bedroom. The kitchen is suitable for a long stay with plenty of storage and Miele appliances.
On site is a large swimming pool which would cater for children and adults alike plus a full size tennis court with a play area. Overall a great facility with easy access to all the Airlie has to offer.

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us at the Boathouse Apartments By Outrigger.
The fact that you expressed your review with such a detailed and positive description, I can only come to the conclusion that you really enjoyed your stay, which pleases us greatly.

We are of the opinion that we do have the best location in Airlie Beach, far enough away to avoid being disturbed by the noise from town, yet still only about 300 meters away.

Thank you again for pointing out all of the benefits of staying with us at the Boathouse Apartments By Outrigger, and we look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.

This place was just what the doctor ordered. Great location, spectacular views day and night. Centrally located to main street, weekend markets and nice resturants.
Staff were friendly and helpful, retail precent was very handy for a bite to eat, or to grab a quick 6 pack.. Highly recommend this place...

Craig and Elisha

Room Tip: We Stayed on level 3, but I would suggest that all apartments would have a spetacular view of the marina.

Thank you for your kind review of your recent stay with us at the Boathouse Apartments By Outrigger. We think we have the perfect location in Airlie Beach, far enough from town not to be disturbed by the late night party goers, yet only a couple of minutes walk to go and explore town and the lagoon. And as you mentioned we are fortunate to still have wonderful views of the marina and out to the Coral Sea.
Thank you again, and hopefully we get to welcome you back to the Boathouse Apartments in the near future.
