This is my second stay at Boathouse Apartments. Once again I found it was worth every penny. Another beautifully decorated apartment, this time on the third floor with a lovely view over the Marina and Hills. I loved sitting on my balcony and watching the weather roll in. Immaculately clean, there were some really minor signs of wear and tear (I had to look pretty hard) since I was here a year ago. The staff (Reception and Housekeeping) were most welcoming and the lovely lady on reception (sorry your name escapes me) gave us a fantastic recommendation for dinner at the Denman Cellars Tapas Bar below which was so good we ate there both nights so I still haven't had the chance to cook in the apartments fantastic kitchen which is stocked with all the pots/pans, cutlery/crockery and cooking implements one would need.
The location is perfect- after walking the length and breath of town exploring the shops etc for a good half day the last thing one wants is to have to climb a massive hill.
Both evenings of our stay I enjoyed relaxing on our balcony with a quiet drink and found other people to be doing the same. There were a couple of larger groups and yes sound travels but the sound of people laughing and enjoying themselves was not a problem for me- they were not partying merely relaxing with friends and on our return from dinner the whole complex was quiet.
I didn't make use of the pool, tennis court etc this time as I was kid free but did enjoy a lovely deep, relaxing bath.
I have looked extensively at the accommodation available in Airlie Beach and often find myself dissapointed once I get past the professional pics and into peoples personal photos. For me The Boathouse is the only choice.
