This small apartment complex (just 7 rooms) has everything you need for a short or long stay. Rooms are immaculate and fully equipped. The pool area is relaxing with plenty of sun beds to catch some rays on. The friendly host, Stuart, is happy with anything you need. A beautiful and peaceful place to stay in Airlie.

I don't often write reviews on places but this place deserves to be recognised. The room was very comfortable, it was a studio apartment layout with a small kitchen included, full A/C and good wifi. If I come back...

A short uphill walk from the fun of Airlie, this place has a relaxed feel and great views over the water. A small studio apartment was more than adequate, smart and clean, fully air conditioned with kitchen facilities. The proprietor, Stuart, was helpful and informative - a real nice guy. I could not have picked a better place.

This accommodation is located up a small but steep hill only five minutes from the main street in Airlie Beach. The views are fantastic - overlooking the sunset and harbour. You can watch the sun go down from their outdoor swimming pool, while cooling off from the heat of the day. The rooms are clean and comfortable - with air...

We spent four nights at Sunlit Waters and had a perfect stay! The apartment was clean and has a great view over the Marina. The bathroom was spacious and clean as well. Stuart, the owner, was super friendly and helpful. First, I booked 5 instead of 4 nights by mistake and Stuart was super easy going and didn't charge it,...

Incredible views, clean, excellent value for money, fully appointed and just a short stroll down the hill to beach/lagoon, shops and bars. Everything was catered to by our friendly owner operator Stuart, from local knowledge and hints/suggestions to make our day adventures a more fruitful experience to taking time to sit and chat and ensure our stay was just right!...
