We had 13 people staying in several apartments over various dates this last 10 days and can recommend these immaculate apartments to anyone staying in Airlie Beach. Located on the main road, so close to restaurants, lagoon and seafront, you don't need a car. Apartments are well equipped and the pool is lovely in the warm Whitsunday weather. But the...

We have stayed at Portside a couple of times and love it. The service is super friendly and the apartments are lovely. The king size beds we have had each time are so comfortable - slept like a log. Everything you need is provided if you want to self cater. Car parks are under cover. The views are fabulous. The...

We stayed at Portside for 5 nights for a sailing competition. I was blown away by the helpfulness & friendliness of the owners and found the position of the units perfect for us. They are located at the end of the shopping strip and just up the road from the sailing club. The apartment itself was clean, modern & spacious....

We stayed at Portside for 2 nights, unexpectedly! Our original booking was for another hotel but after they messed up our rooms, we didn't feel too comfortable leaving our valuables in the insecure room so ended up walking along Airlie Beach and found this gem!

We arrived in Airlie Beach with no booking for accommodation and thought we would wing it. There are many accommodation options in Airlie with a majority of them up on the hill overlooking the beautiful Whitsundays. We did not want to be walking up the hill after a beautiful dinner or even a shopping trip. Portside is located in a...

“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.”
