We had a 3-bedroom apartment, and although hadn't paid for sea-view, the receptionist very kindly gave us a corner apartment that featured a view from the balcony. The views are stunning, and I would highly recommend staying at Marina Shores. The apartment itself is very nice and very spacious. All of the washing, cleaning and cooking facilities were present and... More

We relocated here from another hotel where we found the room size too oppressive for us. Ocean view penthouse apartment which allowed us to watch the turtles direct from the deck - we loved that!! Huge apartment with great size outdoor spaces. A little tired, but clean and the convenience of location and space was more than enough to make... More

Booked last minute for the Airlie Beach Music Festival, Booked a garden view, but got a great partial view of the marina. 2 couples, but had so much space to move. Bus pick up just outside your door. Taxi $11 to town, or a 15 minute walk along the boardwalk with great views. Top Spot

The apartments are nice and modern. Reasonably clean and well decorated but only provided with basic kitchen equipment. Location is ok but still a few kilometres from Airlie Beach so need a car. Paid for an early check in but got a text telling me not to arrive before 2pm. Paid a 50% deposit but got slugged a credit card... More

2 bedroom unit with sea views was to die for! Fantastic location with food and activities close and Airlie beach only 3 minutes down the road! The huge balcony is the perfect place to watch the sunset or just enjoy the view! Fully equipped kitchen means meals with a view all holiday!!

From the start, the willingness of the staff to exchange our apartment for one with an "amazing sea view" was so appreciated. To us, the view was an important aspect of a relaxing break & we weren't disappointed - fabulous! The location of the apartment was spot on - within walking distance along sea-front paths of Airlie's main shopping area... More

We stayed in unit 348. The view from the deck is just beautiful. To sit out on the balcony with a cold drink was so relaxing it was unreal. The unit itself is very comfortable and has everything you need for a great stay. The main bedroom has a spa bath, which is nice. Beds are very comfortable and air... More
