This place apparently used to be some kind of backpacker's place. It has since been given a re-furb but the 4-star rating it has been given may be a little misleading.
We booked last-minute thru wotif.com. Fully self-contained, 2 bedrooms, full kitchen, bathroom, own laundry and balcony. Pull-out sofa bed in the lounge room makes this OK for up to 6 people. Pretty good value for A$135 per night.
Location was great - very quiet but very close to the main drag. Across the road and down a little from the Airlie Beach Hotel.
Do be aware however, this property is opposite the new Port of Airlie project. It may become much more noisey over the next year - will report back after the Airlie meet in Sept'09
I'd give it a 2-star rating. It was clean and all that we needed.
Unique Quality: None really. The management were very friendly and attentive, though.
Directions: Drive past the Airlie Beach main shopping strip, on the right hand side of the road on the bend just as you pass the shops. Drive up the driveway to reception and parking.
