We stayed at Waters Edge for our last night of our holiday. We were pleasantly surprised at the space in our 1 bedroom unit and enjoyed the great view of Airlie Beach and the wonderful sunset from the balcony. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful as we had to depart early in the morning to catch our plane. The... More

Very clean tidy rooms. Very spacious. Kitchen is equipped well. Great views. Great service. Nicely themed entrance into reception; gardens and pool areas. Best of the best location!!! I will be staying there again. Paid the extra $25 for a late checkout, well worth it for a nice sleepin.

My husband and I went for a 5 night stay at the resort. We were amazed by the views from our superior view suite (higher up, well worth the extra money). Every night we would watch the sunset from our balcony or while BBQ in the area on the 3rd floor. Staying here was perfect with a few steps from... More

Great location, short walk from main street. Apartment was clean and spacious. Only downside was the noise, coming from pubs, went on all hours into the night. Beautiful pools, & spa.

This place is the best. An easy walk to main street Airlie but still high enough for fantastic views over the town and harbour. I have stayed three times and have found the rooms to be great value, spacious and well presented. Will definitely stay again.
