2/10 Poor

This is a shared property, misleading advertising and there is no use of pool or spa. I did not see any helicopter or any of the amenities listed. Apart from the view there is nothing exciting about this property!

2/10 Poor

Disgraceful. Not a hotel. Travelling and indicated our gps timing said we would arrive 10.24pm. Hotel staff said they will not book us in after 10pm and will not refund our accommodation fee. They clearly don’t want to be in HOTEL business of dealing with travellers itinerary. What are we meant to do...speed up above limit on one of Australia’s most dangerous single lane undivided highways. Now I need to go through the process of cancelling credit card payments. Nasty people. AVOID.

6/10 Good

It has the most beautiful view. The property is a bit far from the city center and take about half hour to walk along the beach or catch taxi which costs $18 each way. Pete is a great guy, very friendly and helpful but the property needs some upgrade. One thing was that we were not expecting and not told when we booked that we have to share the property with another person. My heart sank when we were told that there’s someone else is living in the same house. The villa has 4 separate bedrooms and one kitchen and lounge area, we didn’t go out of our bedroom the first day because of knowing someone else was there too. Lucky it was only one night but I think that we should have been told. If we knew of a shared property we wouldn’t have booked. Someone owes us an apology, we love Expedia but was very disappointed that they let this happen. We would still recommend the property to friends if anyone want to go as a big group. The property is very basic but Pete had made it very pleasant. Thank you Pete for helping us hiring the car.

4/10 Fair

The view was very nice and there was a large deck. We had to ring to get directions to the property which was in a residential estate. Never saw a reception area or other amenities listed, they must have been further up the road. However, we had no idea when booking that it was share accommodation. When they refer to Unit/Room there are several studio/houses which each contain a number of bedrooms and a common area with TV kitchen etc. The Unit we stayed in had 4 bedrooms, only 2 booked due to Covid. The door to the street must remain unlocked at all times and there is individual key locks on internal bedroom doors. Bedrooms have a shower, toilet and vanity. We went to dinner at local pub - good food - a bit rough. When we returned the other person (who we were told was a lady travelling alone) had arrived and she was in her bedroom with the door open and 2 male friends. They were drinking and had loud music. She did not speak to us and left shortly afterwards slamming the door behind her. I didn't feel safe staying in this type of accommodation, not knowing if they would come back in the middle of the night intoxicated and causing problems. So didn't get much sleep. We left early in the morning.

Our stay was the highlight of our stay in Airlie Beach. Spa under the stars! Great panoramic water views and rain forest right on opposite side. Perfect balance. Peter we really appreciated your help with our luggage, bringing it down to the street for us. You have planted a seed in my mind and I will be back. Your are right, we could have check-out any time we liked, but we can never leave :-)! Maybe see you soon!
