He took care of everyting for us and was really fun to talk with. We also booked our excursions through Stewart, Skydiving, Ocean Rafting and Great Barrier Reef. All in all...

Australians have to be some of the most welcoming and accommodating people on the face of the earth. Nowhere is this more apparent than at the Sunlit Waters hotel in Airlie Beach. The owners are extraordinary people, and the hotel is beyond what you might expect. The views of Abel Point Marina and beyond are simply beautiful. The rooms are...

The location is great. You will have a fantastic view of the marina. You can sit outside your room with your own table with the view behind. of course for every fantastic view you will have to pay the price. the steep hill! but it was worth it. each room has complimentary wifi, although we noticed the farther your room...

We stayed for 3 nights in September 2012 - the view over the marina and bay is spectacular. The room was good - spacious, very clean and had everything you wanted in the kitchenette and main room. As well as the 2 beds there was a settee, coffee table, dinner table and a table and chairs outside on the veranda....

I have just this morning checked out of Sunlit Waters in Airlie Beach after 3 wonderful nights at this property. I stayed 2 nights before a sailing trip out around the Whitsunday's and 1 night after and I can say without any hesitation that if I were to return to Airlie Beach, I would definitely stay here again.

I stayed here on a trip with my husband and brother in law. Considering the price we were very surprised how lovely the place was. The rooms were just what you need and very clean but the best part had to be the amazing views over the beautiful ocean which you can see from your bed through the sliding glass...

We stayed at Sunlit Waters for two nights March, 2012 and absolutely enjoyed the hospitality, the incredible views, the well furnished (including well stocked kitchenette) and immaculate room, navy blue pool, and the balcony overlooking the marina and the "sunlit waters". We had a rental car and parking was included and close to our room. The area was very quiet...

We highly recommend Sunlit to anyone who's going to stay at Airlie Beach. We stayed there during August 2012 and we enjoyed it quite a lot. Location is surely the strong point, given that Sunlit is located in a quiet and very pretty residential area on top of a hill, with fantastic views over the Marina and the open sea....
