You have full access to the upstairs entertainment kitchen and rooftop balcony. We use our own kitchen, decks and living areas downstairs.

Interaction with guests

With the Great Barrier Reef, one of the greatest natural wonders of the world, on our door step, we are happy to give you local insight when it comes to booking tours. However we do recommend that you do try and plan ahead and pre book most of your itinerary. We are also happy to recommend and be of assistance in any way possible. As we travel extensively ourselves we understand what a difference your experience can be, especially when we can provide you with up to date information and local knowledge. We will provide you with a compendium brimming with information of what our incredible destination has on offer.

We can custom style your stay to make it to be as private or as inclusive as you wish. We offer an oasis of tranquillity and relaxation after your hectic day out on the magnificent azure seas, a quick shower and then off to discover the cosmopolitan delights the night life in Airlie Beach has to offer.

Your bedroom is at the rear of the apartment so you won't hear us in the morning when we sneak out to the beach to take Rico for a stroll. You will be blissfully dreaming of your next exciting day ahead. However it is always incredible to watch the sunrise upstairs while you are anticipating your next amazing day and wondering what delights and adventures it will bring.

Other things to note

As we live in an apartment complex please call us on arrival or as arranged, and we will meet you. Please do not go to reception as you are our private guest and not a resort guest. Walk around past Reception, towards the POOL & LIFT. We are on the top floor. Welcome.

We could not recommend this property more! The only thing we would change to this trip would be to stay longer with Diana and Paul! From the minute we were booked to stay with them they were more than helpful organising lifts to and from the Greyhound bus, recommending restaurants and trips to visit and making us feel very welcome. The room they have to offer is beautiful, and the roof terrace was hugely spacious, including a fully equipped fridge and kitchen, and we were given full private access to this. We felt more like family than guests to this wonderful couple, and wouldn't hesitate to return if back in Airlie Beach! Ps - we love Rico their dog! He's a sweetheart!

Diana and Paul's place made a perfect base for exploring the Whitsundays and making a trip out to The Great Barrier Reef during our 5 night stay. Despite some pretty terrible weather our stay was comfortable, luxurious and we had everything we could have asked for. Initially when making the booking we were apprehensive as we would normally try and book a whole apartment rather than a private room. We needn't have worried though. Diana and Paul were excellent hosts that allowed us our own space whilst always being on hand to help with advice, local information and a cold beer. They helped us book day trips and even gave us a lift out to the port early one morning, greatly appreciated. Both lovely people that made it feel more like staying with family than at an Airbnb. The room was clean and the bed was extremely comfortable. The air con and ceiling fan were greatly appreciated on the hot nights and the Wifi was fast. We didn't need to use the kitchen during our stay as there were so many great cafes and restaurants nearby but it was spacious and well stocked, if we had needed it. The roof terrace was fantastic, such a pity we didn't get to use it more often due to the weather. Sun loungers, a BBQ and a breath taking view out to the ocean. More often than not we had the apartment complex swimming pool to ourselves. Nothing like going for an after dinner swim after a day out on the ocean. The apartment is a short walk along the boardwalk to a nice selection of bars and restaurants and about a 10 minute walk to the main town centre of Airlie Beach. Local taxis are cheap and easily bookable if you need them and lots of the day trips also provide transfers, they all know where the apartment complex is located. We would highly recommend both the apartment and Diana and Paul as hosts. A great Airbnb experience that reminds you why you stopped staying in hotels.

This is described as a luxury penthouse and it really is !! The apartment is beautiful, the views over the marina from the huge balcony are stunning. Diana collected us, helped us put laundry in her machine and sent us off to have a swim in the pool! What more could a weary traveller ask for ? On our return we had drinks on the balcony while watching the boats. After breakfast the next day, Diana drove us to catch the ferry. What a great experience of air bnb, we were treated like family. Can't recommend highly enough.

After staying at their place i am able to share my experience with you. What a lovely, clean place with great scenic views. Diana met me on arrival and i was greeted by her with a lovely smile on her face! I enjoyed my experience and everything was perfect! For me as i am travelling i found this expense but for what it was it was definitley worth the price.

What awesome hosts Diana and Paul are! Was a busy stay balancing pressing work with trying to fit in various events around a family wedding - so they hardly saw me as I came and went. But when I was around, they were sooooo accommodating and helpful - and the accommodation is stunning and perfectly placed for easy access to stunning boardwalk walks / runs, the Abel Point Marina is literally across the road and you're only a quick and easy walk away into Airlie Beach main drag - but far enough away not to be in the thick of it. As I say, all made better by an awesome couple too - thanks again Diana and Paul (and all the best for your big day!) AJ

Thank you so much for making our stay as amazing as it was! 100% the most relaxing holiday we have ever had, and your place made it so. From pre-trip tips and recommendations on where to go for dinner, to check-in where you greeted us and showed us everything we needed to know, to being there when we needed you, everything was perfect. Queen Bed was one of the most comfortable we have stayed in with the best pillows. The pool area is quiet and great deck chairs. Location is spot on, not right in the middle of Airlie which is sadly not what it used to be. Marina Shores is well manicured and has a gorgeous outlook and boardwalk left and right straight outside the penthouse. Heaps of parking and easy access. Great food recommendations (Sorrentos for Pizza/Pasta is a must!) Coral Sea Resort for a day trip to sun bake by their ocean side pool. Zig Zag Tours the newest safest fast boat on the water and great inclusions for the best price. Thank you, Paul and Diana, for a thoroughly enjoyable holiday. We will be back!
