We were a little nervous about coming to Airlie Beach as we'd heard it was a bit of a backpacker haven but we wanted to see the Whitsunday's and this seemed to be the best place to stay, and what a place it is!
As it was my partner's 30th we went for the 2 bedroom penthouse which is absolutely enormous! Stunningly decorated with flat screen TV's, two huge bedrooms, wet rooms, and a 180 degree view of the entire coastline. I rarely use the word breathtaking but this place absolutely blew us all away.
My partner couldn't have been happier and the reviews from Tripadvisor are well justified.
The owners were exceptionally helpful as well, booking a sea plane tour of the Great Barrier Reef (something I highly recommend if your budget stretches to it). We had a 3 day cruise booked on the last day but the boat didn't leave until 4PM. Jo, without prompting or asking said we could stay as long as we liked until our boat left for which we were really grateful.
Our stay at Seastar couldn't have been better, the entire apartment is thoroughly modern, has every piece of kitchen equipment you could ask for. It has air conditioning in every part of the apartment and, as I said, the views are just perfect.
There's also a stunning infinity pool and Jacuzzi. All in all it was a magical place, if you're want to come to Airlie Beach and want something a little away from the backpacker scene, that is quiet and ultra-modern this place couldn't be more perfect.
