Spent 3 nights here, before and after Whitsunday sailing trip. Lisa was extremely helpful with our telephone booking, offering to help with booking transit arrangements. Studio very clean, and extremely functional. Pool an excellent bonus with wonderful views overlooking Airlie Beach. Short uphill climb to apartments from main street... but worth it.

I stayed here with my boyfriend after 3 weeks travelling across Australia, and what a haven it was. The views are stunning, there are wild parrots visiting the balcony and the rooms were clean and comfy. We organised 2 day-trips through the owner who was really helpful, to the Barrier Reef and around the Whitsundays. Would definitely stay again, and...

We had been avoiding the floods near Brisbane and needed a great place to stay to recharge. This was the place. We came tired and left relaxed. Great room with a full kitchen. The pool has a great view and we spent several hours watching the harbour from pool. The owners were very helpful and pleasant. Just what we needed.

Lisa and Stuart honestly made our stay at Sunlit Waters easily one of the most memorable, not only because of the amazing hill-top views and sunlit vistas (as the name says), but also because their hospitality completely blew us away. We had forgotten our umbrella, and a towel for our sailing trip and they lent theirs to us without any...

My friend and I stayed in a small studio apartment for a few nights. From Abel Point Marina you can catch a shuttle bus for $3. It is only a few minute walk into town where you can buy groceries. Lisa was really helpful in re-arranging our day tours after one had been cancelled. Her husband drove us back to...

We absolutely loved our stay here! It was just wonderful! This was by far the best value accommodation we had in Australia. We did not know what to expect and enetered our room with trepidation. We need not have worried. It was perfect. Far away from the action to get a good nights sleep. Close enough to be in the...

Very clean and compact self contained apartment. The units each have a balcony (but it is in the shared walkway) that overlooks the marina. The view is superb! Lisa and her husband are nice and helpful people and made the stay even nicer with their humor and golden advice what to do on a rainy day. The apartments are only...

This is a great place to stay just a few minutes walk from town (up a steep hill!). Hosts were very welcoming and more than willing to go the extra mile. Only the basics provided for self catering but there are a few cheap eateries in town. Nice views from the shared balcony area and a small pool in which...
