We were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary and wanted a lovely room with a view (which we had specifically asked for). Unfortunately we were allocated room number one which had very little view as the garden obscures any view at all and a huge electrical pole is directly In front of this room. The pool was right next to this room which did not make it very private either. The room was comfortable and fairly spacious with a kitchen which we didn’t use. The bathroom was adequate but lacked some little things like a soap holder in the shower and extra towel rails. Little extra touches would make it easier to use. The toilet had a tendency to block easily and on occasion we had to use the outdoor pool toilet as the room’s one was blocked. The location of this property is good as it is walking distance to the shops, restaurants and the marina, but keep in mind the busy road is directly in front. Despite our initial disappointment we still had a wonderful time in Airlie beach and hope to return one day but probably staying elsewhere. If we were on a higher level the rating for this review would be much higher.

Stayed in a great two-bedroom apartment, very clean, comfy bed, great views, close to everything. Would highly recommend. Love Airlie Beach, hope it doesn’t become another Gold Coast too quickly - enjoy it while you can!!

We visited Daydream & Hamilton Island before Airlie Beach on our honeymoon and Portside was by far our favourite place we stayed! Colleen and John were so helpful and informative, the rooms were incredibly clean and tidy and it had awesome air conditioning, which was perfect in 95% humidity. The location is amazing- close to Port of Airlie, close to the Main Street and all of the best restaurants. We had Room 16, which had our own little staircase opening out onto the street, which was perfect! No big hills to climb!! We had the one bedroom apartment with a spa, which we enjoyed in the afternoons as the day cooled down. Earlier in the day, during the heat we cooled down in the pool, which has the most beautiful view. Our only regret is not staying longer!

Great stay after we got changed from lower room # 16 located at front of hotel close to the road it didn't feel private at all and staying with our 15month old the room had internal stairs not safe for our walking toddler we soon got changed to a higher level room #12 which was amazing the stairs to rooftop where just out our front door all very private. The views where amazing! Beds very very comfortable and apartment was lovely. Air con works great also. Only down fall where there where a few stairs up to 3rd floor no lift which could be tiring but great if you like a work. The noise from main street was a little loud in our room and no blockout curtains made it hard if you like a day sleep. I didn't get pics of room but is lovely with 2 bedroom private roof top Jacuzzi with bbq, all utensils and cooking needs avalible.

Faboulos hosts who made you feel at home on arrival. Booking made directly with hosts made for better transfer from airport and arrival at apartments. Apartments are well located centrally in town with a 5 minute walk to all shops, restaurants and bars. One bedroom apartment is spacious and well furnished with a superb ocean views and outlook from balcony to marina and township. We are coming back.
