“Absolutely fantastic!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2011

The staff were all friendly and helpful. Recommendations were very good on what to do and see around Airlie. The location was great- an easy 5 minute walk into the heart of Airlie. Had a wonderful stay and would stay here again!

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2011

My partner, two friends and I stayed with Portside in March 2011 and I couldn't have been more impressed. The location was perfect in my opinion, a 2 minute walk to the main strip of Airlie, but without any huge uphill hikes, and just far enough away from all of the noise. the rooms were lovely, and we made good use of the pool and bbq facilities.
The most impressive thing about Portside though was the staff, nothing seemed to be too difficult to help us organise, including booking a couple of daytrips and helping us book some last-minute flights to send one of our group back for a family emergency. I will definately stay at Portside again when I am next in town, and recommend it for all my family and friends.

this was a great base for us with a family. the staff sorted out cots and high chairs which were very clean. I recommend room 14b as it is next to the lift (extra bonus).
Rooms were very well appointed and the kitchen was very workable and you are able to entertain in there.

Portside is conveniently located within walking distance to town, no hill to climb. If you drive, the underground garage is ample and secure. The hosts, Colleen and John are welcoming and helpful at all times. The accomodations are extremely clean and well equiped, for short or long term stays. Our apartment had a patio overlooking the Coral Sea and Whitsunday Islands, beautiful view. It is well stocked with all the amenities you need. The pool has shaded or sunny areas with many seating configurations. The barbeque area is covered, with table and chairs, and utensils available for the cooking. Not a detail overlooked.
As a special treat, we were very close to the best restaurant in the area, Alain's, in Cannonvale, a couple of miles from Airlie Beach. The chef/owner treats food as an art form, and each plate delivered to the table exudes freshness and artistry. A restaurant you do not want to miss.
Will definitely be back next year.

Myself and 6 of my girlfriends stayed at Portside for my bday in July 2010 and had an amazing/crazy girls weekend! The apartment was absolutely beautiful, location perfect, walking distance to everything and the staff soooooo friendly and helpful. I can't say enough good things about it and Airlie is just amazing and can't wait to go back!
I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Airlie - Portside all the way!!!
