We spent three evening at these studios. They are nice and clean with a great view of the harbor, and in a quiet park of town. It is only two block from one end of town. It is on top of a steep hill. The climb is only about one block, but something to consider if this is a problem...

Really great location with views over the marina and just a short walk to the main street. A very clean and tidy room with good facilities. An Ideal place to stay when visiting the Whitsunday Islands.

I was impressed from the start! Situated on top of a hill, every apartment has a beautiful view of the harbour. Very quiet position, in walking distance of the main street and beach. Extremely clean and tidy apartments. Free wifi and kitchenette made my stay very comfortable and could have easily stayed more than the 3-nights that I was there....

Every so often, there's a hotel so majestic, words can't really describe the pure aura of the experience. When my family and I arrived at Sunlit Waters, the pure essence of the hotel blew us away. If God was staying in Airlie Beach, he almost assuredly would stay here. From the delightful owner to the beautiful view to the tantalizingly...

Our stay at Sunlit Waters was brilliant . Not far from the main street, but a very quiet position. Every room has a breathtaking view and all rooms are very clean, tidy and well appointed. The pool is beautiful and lovely to lounge around . The motel only has 7 rooms which makes it very personalised. The owner, Stuart couldn't...

Awesome spot just at the end of Main Street of Airlie, all rooms are very clean, tidy and well appointed, with aircon, great pool, off street parking, and the view is to die for, as budget accommodation we rated this 5 star. Stuart owner/operator couldn't do enough for us, do yourself a favour stay here...

Really close to town, spotlessly clean, Stuart (owner) helped with decisions on activities to do and organised everything, the pool was a great place to cool off and the view from the balcony was magnificent.

We had a great experience during our 5 day visit. We loved our apartment's view (Abel Point Marina and Pioneer Bay), it's close proximity to Sunlit Water's beautiful swimming pool and the wonderful chairs, sun umbrellas and tables on the balconies, which face the bay. Our unit and bathroom were clean and sparkling and well furnished. It was a pleasure...

Spent 2 nights here in a one bedroom apartment. The rooms are clean and completely self contained. The pool and views were stunning. Our stay was very peaceful and relaxing. We paid $145 a night for 3 adults and 1 child. Very well priced. We will definitely stay here again and recommend to others. Its only a 2 to 3...
