Convenient stopover
My family and I spent a night at this property on our way through to Hamilton Island. Although it was an older property we enjoyed our stay. It was conveniently located behind Woolworths and the main street of Airlie. My favourite aspect was the pools there are 3 and my sister and I got one to ourselves in the afternoon which was lovely. I would stay here again next time I am in town.

Okay if you just need a place to sleep
Positives are, great view of the beach. Location is good, walking distance to woolies and the beach. Negatives are, the price that we paid ($700/night weekend) it is not worth it. It is okay if you only need a place to sleep in, but the overall condition and age of the apartment is not up to the standard of the price you will pay. Room service towels/coffee/toiletries etc replenishments will only be provided if you are staying for over a month. Otherwise you will need to pay extra for these. Couch and mattress were dusty and itchy. Aircon leaking water (children accidentally slipped) utensils and drawers were unclean (with sauce spilled and dried inside). Cleanliness and sanitation can definitely be improved. Building alarm went off at around 2am, other guests said it is a false alarm and that it also happened the night before.

6/10 Good

The showers had mould around grouting and generally everything was very worn including the washing machine (which was not balanced properly), the drier had holes in the filter, the dishwasher was extremely old and looked like handle had previously been broken off. It was advertised to have foxtel but it didn't. Also didn't have Netflix or Stan. The TV had a permanent green line across the screen. Really needed to be thrown out and replaced. It was also a very small screen. The spa didn't work properly and was cold. The maintenance man said that someone would have to come in two weeks to fix it as he couldn't do anymore although he did manage to increase the temp slightly but it was still too cold.

Better than the island
Very comfortable and in a great location close to everything. The options of which pool you wanted to use was great. Following an over night stay we went to one of the islands and we were very sorry that we didn't just stay at waters edge resort. This place was more comfortable and a much better price. Highly recommend this place.
