I stayed here in Feb17! Stewart was an amazing host, the apartment was huge and very clean! The views from the terrace and pool are amazing overlooking the harbour! It's just a 5min walk down to Airlie town and a bit of a hike back up but really worth it! The only bad thing was that I didn't find this...

We stayed at Sunlit Waters initially for one night but due to unforeseen circumstances (yacht ran aground) decided to go back there. Stuart, the owner / operator was very welcoming, polite, friendly and overall awesome even supplying us with his own shorts and T-shirts when we had only the clothes on our back after our ordeal. The apartments themselves are...

We have stayed in several units over the last 2 years and found them to be well appointed, very comfortable and clean. Stuart Mills is very friendly and helpful and has a great sense of humour. His pool is a great way to start the day, then to have breakfast looking out over the 'sunlit waters' - what a view!...

We stayed in a 1 bedroom corner unit in October, and the view of the islands was spectacular! The room was spotless and tidy, and Stewart was super friendly and helpful. It was also incredibly quiet and convenient, even though it was close to the town area. We enjoyed the sunsets, and the cockatoos and lorikeets as well. Thanks Stewart!...

I am so glad we ended up staying here and meeting our host Stewart. He went out of his way to make sure our stay was great and he is fun to talk to. He made our experience so much better and memorable.

We just spent time before sailing Withsundays . The location is magic, facing the Marina, beautiful view of the whole bay and only 2' from the city restaurant and bars. Nice accommodation and swimming pool with all services available, and great hospitality. Memorable stay in a beautiful city.

The room is tidy and big, with sea view in front and very convenient location, near to the main street. The only consideration is the hotel is located at the hill, some exercise is required everyday to go in and out.
