It is now available for holiday rental providing the most spacious and stylish accommodation in central Airlie Beach at very affordable rates, especially for families and groups.

2.5 star house with 5 star location and views

  • 3 of 5

We were very excited about our stay at the "boat house" and we enjoyed our time there immensely. There were a few highlights and a few low lights regarding our stay and I will begin with the low lights.

Air con in captains cabin not working. Kitchen air con not cooling but worked on fan function. Kitchen ceiling not working. No wifi. Beds on wheels moved around and bed next to lounge room is extremely uncomfortable. I would suggest the kitchen could do with a bit of re organisation as things are a bit hard to find.... inside dining and outside dining furniture is not entirely suitable for the spaces they are in, nor is there enough seating for everyone out on the deck should the house be full.

Onto the highlights.

The location is spectacular! It's so close to all the popular amenities in Airlie that you can easily leave the car and walk in and out of town numerous times to do the things you want or need to do.

The house boasts numerous bathrooms which is always a positive. The lounge is very comfortable and there is plenty of comfortable seating for all. The refrigerator and freezer function well and are generous in size.

The house is in a residential area so very quiet and peaceful both day and night. The neighbours are friendly.

The views are 5 star!!! The deck is the perfect place to enjoy both the views and the breeze.

Great location and views

  • 4 of 5

The Boathouse is a 5 mins walk from main street which means right in the middle of Airlie Beach but without the noise. House is very comfortable with 2 showers and an extra shower if you hire the captain's cabin as well. We had an awesome stay and enjoyed time spent on the deck and daily visits from all the birds. Restaurant tip is Sorrento, 2 mins walk to Abel Point Marina.

Points to improve: for a property with this price tag we had expected wifi. Also plates, glasses etc were not clean upon arrival (but could because dishwasher is not cleaning that well)

Lovely stay

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed the Boat house. Very appropriately named. If your looking for shiny, modern luxury go somewhere else. If you are after a true beach house feel, where large families can be comfortable then tis is your place.The mattresses on the bed are uncomfortable though, this would be the only thing I would want changed. The position is fantastic! The nearby Coral sea resort is a great place to swim but is expensive and not necessarily worth the prices for food. The Airlie Beach restaurants and lagoon are all within walking distance though. Nothing felt fake, it is a genuine old beach house full of beautiful artefacts. We enjoyed our stay.
