We arrived in Airlie Beach with no booking for accommodation and thought we would wing it. There are many accommodation options in Airlie with a majority of them up on the hill overlooking the beautiful Whitsundays. We did not want to be walking up the hill after a beautiful dinner or even a shopping trip. Portside is located in a...

Location is fantastic, rooms are fine, cooking facilities are great, pool is generally empty as so few apartments, we had a spa on the roof for fantastic privacy. From what we could see either Portside or boathouse were perfect. Far enough away from the hustle but an easy flat walk. Good quality with great views, stairs could be a problem...

Thank you for taking the time to review Portside. Yes, Portside is in an excellent location, sometimes a little too close to restaurants ... but saves cooking!

From the moment I emailed to enquire about booking a room, to the moment we checked out, the service here was impeccable. I had booked another apartment but realised it was a 20min up hill walk from town so enquired with Portside. Colleen placed a tentative booking for me and held that until I knew I could cancel the other...

For Airlie Beach it is great to get one of the resorts where you don't have to walk up the hill, but still have great ocean views. Portside is convenient for many places including restaurants, hotel, supermarket and the many day trips leaving from Port of Airlie. The Portside rooms have got everything you need, serviced every few days and...
