We stayed here for two nights but wished we had been able to stay much longer. Very comfortable, spacious apartment with high quality furnishings throughout. The views from the balcony were stunning. Very highly recommended.

Thats right no matter how long you stay here .. you will wish you booked it for longer ...i guarantee it. we was originally staying for 3 nights i changed my plans and ended up staying 7 nights and very glad we did... the place is so relaxing i could of stayed longer.

We have established in other reports that all rooms are excellent with everything you will need to be home from home but heres a good tip for you ask Jo if the penthouse is available on booking.... not worth the extra money i hear you say... think again its worth every penny and will add 10 fold to your experience.

Its obviously dearer but if your budget can accommodate it you truly wont be disappointed.

If i had to find fault on a personal level i would say that the only downside for me is that there is no internet access in the rooms .
Now there is 1 computer in reception you can use but in todays world business or leisure needs internet its a necessity most apartment hotels have this in every room now and it would of been nice to do this in the privacy of the penthouse or any room for that matter .

The upbeat reviews were right. We spent 3 happy nights in a great Sea Star apartment with expansive views to the water. An after hours check-in went without a hitch, we got good advice about a sailing trip and where to eat in town, a broken DVD remote was replaced same day without fuss. How relaxing to stay in such a place. (But we can't help but agree with a previous reviewer about the town itself which is pretty ordinary. Its highlight for us was the fresh produce at the Saturday morning market).

We stayed 2 nights at Sea Star Apartments but after arriving wished we had booked for longer! This is a great find. The apartments are large and spacious and are equipped with all amenities one could ask for including dishwasher, washer and dryer, microwave etc. It is really a home away from home. There is a beautiful infinity pool and a barbecue for guest use which was really great. Our apartment had a magnificent view over the Airlie Beach harbour and it was lovely to wake up each morning to such a gorgeous sight. As an added bonus, the cockatoos came to our balcony each morning and we could feed them peanuts from our hands. Really cool! The only downside for some could be that the apartments are located on the top of a steep hill. Although we didn't mind this as it separated us from the backpacking mobs below in town. And without the hill the view would be impossible! We would recommend getting a cab if you are taking luggage up. It's about 6 AUD from the high street below.

We spent 5 nights at Sea Star Apartments mid July and were very pleased with the accommodation. Very clean, wonderful views and great kitchen and bathrooms. We used taxi's to avoid walking up the hill. We would definitely stay at Sea Star again.

Yes we knew about the hill, taxi between 6-8 dollars and a free taxi phone adjacent to reception.
I have NO idea what Sallysmith1970 is on about. The apartment was spotless, cutlery/crockery clean, all furnishings in excellent order, clean crisp linen and towels.
Views are unbeatable, staff are friendly, late check out was no problem and no charge!

If you are visiting Airlie do yourself a favour, don't even bother looking at other accomodation, I guarantee you will enjoy Sea Star.

Great views, plenty of space, adequately stocked with equipment and a great way to enjoy a few days or more in the Whitsundays. Proximity to town is good...going down is a nice walk, coming back up the steep hill with groceries might be a bit tough for older visitors but a cab ride is about $5 and there's an automatic connection to the cab company from the phone at reception. If hanging out with the backpackers downtown Airlie Beach in the evening is not your cup of tea, this is definitely for you. We were happy to drink our wine and watch the sun go down over this beautiful place.

Special note about Julie in reception who, through some very helpful advice on snorkelling trips and other queries, enahnced our visit tremendously. Thank you for a memorable visit.
