The spa on balcony. Rest needs up dating and the picture on website needs to be upgraded as they have pics of the penthouse for the spa room. Spa room had no view like the picture on the web site. 4/10

A Nice property
This has been a very nice property, and still is quite nice. It's spacious, king size bed, great air con, lounge seating, an ergonomic type chair, a spa on the balcony nice kitchenette with full size frig and nice bathroom. Whilst it is fitted out with quality inclusions, it does show its age. However, one could comfortably live here! There is undercover parking. Note, there is no lift , stairs only.

Wonderful holiday - Great Place to stay
The staff were superb in ensuring our needs were met even down to details like fancy folded towels! Nice touch! We loved the position and convenience. Airlie is an awesome place for a holiday. with some much to see and do from snoozing on the beach, swimming, snorkeling, Great Barrier Reef excursions, taking in the beautiful views from the deck, great bush walks and more.

The minute we walked in the unit there was a sense of calm and quiet luxury. Although the property is starting to show its age, it was clean and comfortable.
