Sunlit Waters Studio Apartments

Reviewed 9 February 2014

Considering this was one of the cheapest options in Airlie Beach, we weren't sure what to expect. However, we needn't have worried. The apartment was lovely, really clean and in great condition. The beds were nice and comfy and the kitchen had everything we needed. The location was great, really central (although it's up quite a steep hill which may cause problems for some). We had a great view of the harbour from our room and from the pool.

Unfortunately we managed to time our stay with a cyclone, however Stuart looked after us really well. He drove us to the supermarket so we wouldn't have to go out in the rain, lent us rain coats, and when the power went in the evening (it went in the whole area due to the cyclone), lent us a lamp and a gas burner so we could cook our food.

The only thing I would improve would be the cancellation policy. We were pre-warned about the cyclone and were considering cancelling our trip to Airlie Beach, however as it was within 7 days we wouldn't get any money back, so we decided to go anyway. I guess this is understandable though as it's a small operation.

Overall I think you would struggle to find a nicer place to stay in Airlie Beach, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone going there.

I stayed for one night in a small studio and enjoyed much about the environment and stay in Airlie beach. The studio was well equipped and very clean. Outside there is a nice view. 5 minutes to supermarket and Airlie beach lagoon is just nearby. We regret we didn't have much time to spend there but we will surely come back.

We had a great stay in one of the tidy studio's. Owners are very nice and are willing to advice, book and if needed provide help with any of the possible trips airly beach has to offer. We could recommend sunlit waters very much.

We had a wonderful stay at Sunlit waters, our hosts Stuart and Lisa went above and beyond to ensure we had a great stay. They even offered to store our luggage while we were out sailing the Whitsundays and then gave us a ride to the bus station when we were leaving Airlie Beach. Thanks so much for making our stay so enjoyable! Cheers! - Melanie and Kathy

Beautifully set above the harbour, our studio apartment was clean and big enough, with a small kitchen and a bathroom with a roomy shower. There is a small pooI, just enough for a dip, and some sun loungers around it. The rooms are all accessed from the long gallery balcony, so your balcony is not private. The view from the balcony's is beautiful and we ate on ours most evenings.
The owner was usually around for information and so on. There is a small car park which did get full most nights. The WiFi was OK and free. Town is a 3 minute walk away, down a steep hill so a little longer coming home.
