Stayed for three nights in February. No way near long enough. Booked into a one bedroom hot tub room. It was amazing. The views were breathtaking. There was everything in the apartment you could ever need. The management were so welcoming and so helpful

Portside is situated close to town & right across from the famous rum bar. It's not up the horribly steep hill so perfect if you don't have a car. The owner Coleen was nothing but helpful, such a hardworking nice lady. Would recommend😊

Best stay in Airlie Beach yet! Book me a room with a balcony fan for the 2017 music festival! You're lucky I didnt take the bed, it was the most comfortable one we've slept on while we've been away! The room was clean & the air con quiet. Thank you for not treating smokers like leppers!! Can't spruke you enough!...

We have just finished a long weekend celebrating my mum's 70th and the penthouse was just what we needed. The lap pool was a huge hit and the location meant that friends could come and go as they pleased over the weekend.

“I stayed in an apartment with a rooftop jacuzzi and would DEFINITELY recommend this option! I loved my stay and will be back again and again. The town is only a 50 metre walk from Portside (with no hills!). John and Colleen are amazing hosts and have a lot of local knowledge. Everything from check-in to check-out was absolutely perfect and could not fault this accommodation for any reason. Thank you so much Collen and John for a wonderful place to stay during my much deserved holiday. Absolutely fantastic! See you again soon.”
