“Great Service, Awesome views loved it”
Reviewed 20 December 2011

Well what can I say, we arrived to a friendly smile and a genuine welcome from a nice young man, he was great with our little boy and very engaging. We got to our room and the views were breathtaking looking straight out over the sea! the apartment was new, spacious and very clean and had all modern appliances you could wish for. We loved the pool and enjoyed breakfast at the coffee club downstairs. Airlie Beach was great and we went on a day trip to Whitehaven beach which was incredible with its soft white sand and incredible blue water! Amazing! This was our first trip to Airlie and we will definitely be back! Boathouse will be our first choice on our return. Thanks for a great stay!

We loved our stay at the Boathouse Outrigger. We stayed on level 1 and had perfect views. The apartment was super clean, very comfortable and tastefully decorated. The appliances were new and top of the range. We ate out every day/night so didn't use them but it appeared like a great self-contained apartment, if you wanted to cook, etc. The pool area is also beautiful. The location is soooo convenient and close to the little town of Airlie. We walked in there every day. The Coffee Club is also very convenient and they have great food. There are some really great shops in the complex downstairs there too - including a lovely little boutique where I bought a lovely little dress! Overall, we had the BEST time. The staff were very good (Melissa on reception was really helpful, friendly and very nice). No complaints - we will definitely come back. Note: It was schoolies week when we arrived (19th Nov 2011) and they were everywhere. They were really well behaved (from what we saw and heard) and we had no problems. We did Day trips and they were fab too and we would also highly recommend them. Melissa helped us organise them and the tour people have a service that comes to collect you from the Boathouse. Awesome stay - thanks so much.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 8 on level 1. No complaints, it was lovely.

This place was amazing as it's still very new so cleanliness wasn't an issue. The apartments all have balconies with tables and chairs and overlooks the marina and it's a gorgeous view. The apartments are very modern and had nothing but the best appliances on hand for the times you wished to stay in. The pool area was great with heaps of chairs and toilets nearby .Close to main street where you can take many a stroll for coffees and dinner if you don't wish to cook inhouse. Reception were also very helpful and friendly with any questions we had.

My fiancé stayed here two weeks ago having got a deal on cudo. It was great! Right on the water with a great view. They are building up the area around these new apartments which I only realized once we arrived thee but it did not affect our stay, couldn't hear the building or anything. It was nice and quiet when we were there, we often had the pool to ourselves. Beach towels were available to hire which was great as we forgot ours.

Overall the apartment itself was well presented, perhaps not as luxurious as I thought it would be but really pleased, especially as we got a great deal on cudo. The apartments seem really secure, "secure" railing gates surrounded the properties. But we did notice that although you need to swipe your room key to gain access into the surrounding gates to the grounds there was a exit button on the otherside which meant that it wasn't so secure after all as you simply need to put your hand through the railings and you can press the button and get in- design fault we presume.

Anyway we had a great stay. Staff are very friendly also. Beds are very comfortable and great kitchen with all utensils that you would need.

I am glad to hear the staff were accommodating and the apartments furnishings and kitchen were sufficent as these are obviously major points to contributing to a great holiday.

In regards to the swipe access it is something I am looking at amending soon.

Very unique location facing the marina close to downtown. We stayed for a weekend and got upgraded to a 2-bedroom apartment with everything we could dream of: beautiful decor inside, large balcony, very comfortable sofas in the living room, fully-equipped kitchen, washer/driver closet, and Internet access. Everything was perfectly clean and very-modern. The staff was very helpful in guiding us to make the most of our short stay. Just two quick things to be aware of: There didn't seem to be a housekeeping service; and the design of the showers made it difficult to not splash around.
We fell in love with this place and came back full of very unique memories. We hope to be able to go back soon!

Thank you very much for your positive feedback and appreciate your taking the time to share your experience here recently at The Boathouse Apartments by Outrigger.
In response to your comments about servicing of the apartments, as the apartments are fully self catered as opposed to serviced apartments we do not provide daily servicing although do provide a mid stay service for any bookings longer than 5 days (non promotional).
The modern showers as you noticed do tend to have some water go outside of the shower area.

I am glad the decor and comfort of the apartments was to your liking and also that the staff were friendly and accomodating.

Take care and look forward to welcoming you and your partner back to the Boathouse by Outrigger soon.
