“Perfect, peaceful luxury.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2014

We returned for 5 nights in a 3 bedroom penthouse at "the point" during April 2014 having stayed for the first time in April 2013. This place is simply stunning. The massive living/kitchen area and bathrooms were spotlessly clean and the beds very comfortable. The staff were exceptional and always had time for a chat about what to do at Airlie. The best part of the stay was watching the sunset from the huge balcony overlooking the marina with my family. We will definitely be back next year.

Our stay at the peninsula was absolutely amazing. It has spectacular views, large, clean spacious rooms and a great swimming pool.

The location is just out of town but just far enough to be peaceful and quiet with just a short taxi trip to the Main Street.

The staff were great. It was the first time we have been taken personally to our room and given a guided tour of the room. They also helped organise all of our day trips and recommended locations to eat in the evening.

I would definitely recommend this accommodation to anyone looking for a quiet getaway

Hi Fatkinson 93,

We are so thankful of the time you've spent letting everyone know thru your review on Trip Advisor about our beautiful and unique accommodation at The Peninsula in Airlie Beach.

Our quiet and peaceful location had always been our pride and joy. Our guests enjoy the tranquillity and luxurious surroundings that is always associated with the stay at The Peninsula. The shops and town centre being between $8 to $10 one way by taxis justify itself for our breathtaking location.

Its standard procedure at The Peninsula for all front office staff to provide you a tour of the complex and show you most of the areas you need to know during your stay like the secured car park and our security gate and lifts.

As I have mentioned previously in one of the other reviews with Trip Advisor, we provide advice to our houseguests on where to go and when. We usually access the weather sites first, where we can accordingly help our guests make the right decisions whether to go ahead on a boat trip or whether it's best to stay on the mainland during bad weather and see the beautiful sites within the Whitsunday region. We will always try our best to ensure everyone going on any trips or tours have the best times they've ever had in our beautiful Whitsundays. After all, we want them all to come back with their family and friends. And we do receive quite a lot of return guests at The Peninsula Airlie Beach.

Lastly, we hope we will see you again at The Peninsula in the not so distant future.
May you have a wonderful year!!!

Best regards from
Dorothy & The Peninsula Team

We stayed for 2 nights at Peninsula in January and we had a great time. The apartment was very comfortable and well equipped and the view/location was lovely. We would definitely stay again but make it a longer visit this time.

We made full use of the pool (which was usually quiet) and used the cafes and restaurants in the marina for meals and drinks.

My only criticism would be that with 2 children under the age of 8, it was a pretty long walk to town and sometime stretching even to get to the restaurant in the marina when it was 30+ degrees. Having said that, the receptionist at peninsula was great at arranging taxis!

Room Tip: Go for a penthouse - it's worth it!

Hi Matt P,

Thank you very much for taking the time to put in a Trip Advisor Review. We greatly appreciate it.

We are so glad to hear that you and your family had a great time at The Peninsula and we are happy to know that you'll be staying longer next time around.

As for our comfortable apartments and lovely water frontage location, yes we have one of the mainlands best kept secret. Everyone who just wanted to chill out and not be disturbed by the main street traffics and noise from nightclubs seek out our well appointed apartments. They truly enjoy the tranquillity of our surroundings at the Peninsula.

The summer weather was pretty extreme whilst you were here due to all the lows in the atmosphere which created a lot of the humidity and most likely was the reason why the kids felt it and it would have been uncomfortable at 30+ degrees to walk any distance without an umbrella.

Many thanks for allowing us to make it more bearable for the kids by getting taxis for you whenever necessary. Perhaps if you were to avoid the summer months next time around, the kids would be happier walking the boardwalk to town and the restaurants.

We hope to see you again soon in the not so distant future. May you all have a wonderful 2014.

Best regards from
The Peninsula Team

We stayed in the 3-bedroom penhouse for 5 days during Dec 2013. The apartment is beautiful and the view is amazing. We really enjoyed our stay especially with the service we received from Dorothy. Dorothy was exceptionally helpful and friendly, she recommended places to go and even booked the tours for us which saved us so much time. Eventhough it is not right in town, it only costs $7-8 for taxi trip to town and it was easy for us to get a taxi each time.
We would definitely come back to Peninsula but next time we would stay in just a 3-bedroom and not the penhouse - the bedrooms did not have curtains on the top windows so it was really bright at 5.30am.

Hi mmj2014,

Firstly, thank you for doing a Trip Advisor review for us. Every feedback we receive just makes us better ourselves every step of the way and improve our services and facilities therefore we welcome every single one of them wholeheartedly. We haven't won Travellers Choice 3 years in a row without all the hard work we've put in to ensure everyone is happy with their stay at

Secondly, we are so happy to hear that you've found our apartment beautiful and yes the water view from all of our apartments will take your breath away! Its an amazing place to stay on the mainland and our luxurious surrounding is very private and definitely quiet, away from the madding crowds of the nightclubs and busy main street.

Thirdly, our close proximity to the shops, cafes and restaurants in and around Airlie Beach allow our guests to just catch the occasional taxis to get to places without costing them a fortune.

We are always glad to be able to assist you with your tour bookings during your stay as you can rely on us that we won't recommend you anything that we haven't tried ourselves. We genuinely only select the best tours with very experienced staff to service your needs during these tours.

In view of your comment about the curtains to darken the room. Unfortunately the design of that particular apartment did not allow for the narrow triangular shaped upper part of the master bedroom's window to be completely covered with the slider/blinds and curtains that we usually have available in most of our apartments especially in the bedrooms.

Lastly, thank you for considering us again on your next visit to Airlie Beach and we look forward to your next stay.

Best regards from
Dorothy

We booked a two bedroom apartment overlooking the Marina for 7 nights which included the Xmas period. We were very impressed with the quality of the furnishings and cooking utensils and crockery / glassware. John, the Manager, had organised an electric BBQ for us before our arrival so that we could roast our Xmas Turkey. All staff we spoke to or met were extremely friendly and went out of their way to be helpful. We were visiting family at Airlie Beach and they were welcome to use the Resort's pool which, given the temperatures, they thoroughly enjoyed. We had originally booked a 2 bedroom loft apartment. When staff realised we were 4 adult travelers they rang to advise that the loft bedroom was open to the lower level and that maybe we would like an apartment that was more private. We accepted their advice and finished up with a great spot overlooking the marina and the distant islands. We have stayed in several resorts in Airlie Beach over the past 7 years and this is the first time at the Peninsular but will not be the last.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the marina are great with huge balconies to entertain or chill out.

Hi Daryl S,

Thank you very much for your lovely review on Trip Advisor.

We are so happy that you had a really pleasurable stay with us. We were glad to be able to assist you with the BBQ and thank you once again for letting us know in advance of your requirements during your stay.

As for the beautiful apartment you stayed in during your recent visit with us, we believe that the more information we receive about our guests expectations before their stay, the better off we are in servicing these needs. We obviously would like to make sure everyone is happy with their stay all the time and as you will notice from some of our regular guests' comments on Trip Advisor, we exceed their expectations at all times.

We look forward to your return at The Peninsula and wish you the very best for 2014!

Best regards from
Dorothy and the team at Peninsula Airlie Beach

As return visitors, this time accompanied by a relative from the UK, my husband and I were received very warmly by John, Sandy and Dorothy upon our arrival in early December 2013.
We stayed in a Penthouse apartment which was very well appointed and accompanied by fabulous views of the marina and islands, which was a perfect backdrop whilst sitting on the balcony and made for a nice, relaxing visit. Staff and management at the complex were very helpful and made our stay even more enjoyable with recommendations for local restaurants and excursions, which we thoroughly enjoyed.
We will definitely be back - just hope it's sooner rather than later.

Hi JojoSunshineCoast,

Everything about the Peninsula i.e. its perfect waterfront location, the beautifully appointed apartments, our quiet surroundings and the proximity to town, cafes and shops will always make us the best location on the mainland to chill out.

We've been honoured over the years to have so many loyal return guests like yourself who can always trust us with our recommendations on tours and other activities including restaurants.

There are so many things that can keep everyone occupied in Airlie Beach. Its just a matter of giving us an idea what they want to achieve during their holidays or breaks and we're more than happy to assist and help them tailor made their perfect tropical holiday.

May we see you again soon.
