Spent 3 nights at portside airlie beach could not have been more impressed. Rooms lovely and clean, perfect location as you dont have to climb hill. I was particularly impressed with property manager Colleen, nothing was too much trouble and kindly offered late check out. Will definitely be back

Portside Whitsunday is a wonderful place to stay. Perfect location close to shops, restaurants, bars, marinas and the lagoon. The view from our apartment was breath taking with a beautiful outdoor pool. The apartments are clean and well maintained, excellent private roof top sauna with a large entertaining area. The managers (John and Coleen) really go out of their way...

“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.”
