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... More

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... More

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.... More

The location is fantastic, just off the main street but with no noise from it. The hill up to the accomodation isn't as bad as some of the views I read before I went had made out we found it no problem at all. The views are beautiful of the harbour breathtaking!.

Just stayed 2 nights at Sunlit Waters Studio Apartments. Great correspondence prior to our trip. We were given the end unit which was fantastic. Very clean with everything you need to self-cater.

We stayed at Sunlit for a few nights in mid August and were immediately very impressed with the stunning view and position of the location, walking distance from the main street in Airlie but conveniently placed in a quiet residential area.

We stayed here for 1 night before setting off on a 2-day cruise of the Whitsundays. The room was clean and comfortable and the balcony outside offered impressive views.

Sunlit waters had to be one of the best bargains of mine and my mothers trip down the qld coast. The room contained all that you needed including a well appointed kitchenette with hobs, fridge, microwave and sink. The views from the shared balcony were breathtaking. The hill up to the apartments was not as steep as I expected based... More
