The rooms were tidy and clean and great value for a private room in the area. The only negative is that it's about a 30 minutes walk to the main Airlie Beach area. You can take a bus but they are not too frequent. If you don't mind this then it's a great place to stay. The staff were extremely...

We stayed in a cabin for two nights here and had a great time. The receptionist was super welcoming and friendly, check in was smooth. The cabin was plenty big enough for the two of us and was clean with good air conditioning which was very welcome in the heat! The park had multiple BBQ facilities which was great, the...

With our apartment hunt not going as smoothly as hoped for, we saw ourselves forced to look for a temporary home in Airlie Beach and got recommended to stay at Kipara. My partner and I stayed at one of the cabins with a large single bed for about 3 weeks. 25min walk to Port of Airlie but there is also...

Kipara has the best super cute self contained cabins. The staff were well informed, friendly & exceptionally helpful. They offer all guests a ride into the main street if needed & are willing to bend over backwards to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The rooms were clean & tidy, well looked after & serviced. Any problems (we didnt...

This place is a little gem! A bit on the outskirts of Airlie just 30 minute walk from city center or 5 minutes by car. The self contained cabins extremely clean and appointed with A/C (total bonus), small tv and nice coffee tea making amenities including milk in the mini fridge. I didn't use the communal BBQ or laundry facilities...

The person at the reception was absolutely fantastic and very helpful : I lost my debit card she found it, my phone was off and I needed an alarm to wake up when I checked out, she offered me to come to knock my door. She did lavish attention what I did appreciate. The place is very relaxing, in the...

Our little unit consisted of a double bed, a nice little bathroom, a bar fridge, kettle with tea and coffee options, a small tv and lots of cupboard space. For $60 , I'm not complaining. Its about 2km out of the esplanade of Airlie, yet it is beautifully quiet. The staff here were quite helpful when we asked questions, and...

Stayed here for 5 nights with my partner whilst visiting Airlie Beach. We stayed in a private cabin which was fantastic value for money and had an en suite, a bed which is larger than a single but smaller than a double (perfect size for us as we're small people :) ), a fridge, a television, free tea/coffee and a...
