Interaction with Guests
I live onsite at the accommodation and tour booking businesses that I operate, and I am here to assist you during your stay. I can assist with booking your tours and give you information on where to drive for sightseeing options.
Living in the Airlie Beach 'Heart of the Reef' and the Whitsundays, allows us to get out on the water, in the water and fly over the water to visit Whitehaven Beach, the Great Barrier Reef, Daydream Island, Hamilton Island, snorkel, diving, kayak, sky diving, go on overnight sailing tours, jet ski, crocodile safari, sailing, and chill out in the relaxed town of Airlie Beach. Our lifestyle is relaxed and casual so shorts, t-shirts, sun dresses is the attire.
You definitely have to go on a tour to Whitehaven Beach, the islands and Great Barrier Reef. A flight over all of these icons is a great way to top off your holiday in Airlie Beach. Go to my tours website using the www's airliebeachonline (website hidden) dot au to look for day tours,overnight sailing and Fraser Island.
A walk into Airlie Beach is only 5 minutes away, where you can explore our town on foot! Woolworths supermarket is now open in Airlie Beach to get your groceries. Public transport is easy if you need to get to the shopping centres at Cannonvale.
Airport transfers are $18.00 per person one way from the Whitsunday Airport. If flying into Hamilton Island, the ferry is $48.00 per person one way to Abel Point Marina. As of April 2014, you can fly Sydney to Whitsunday Airport with Tiger Airways on selected days. Virgin Australia and Jetstar fly to Whitsunday Coast Proserpine, Hamilton Island and Mackay from Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. There is a transfer service from $60.00 per person one way that may connect with your morning flights. Check out the Greyhound Bus or Premier Motor Service as well.
Best to contact me for an update on this information before you book so I can give you the best advice.
Other Things to Note
Previous guests have stayed in my house using the double bedroom. As of June 2014, I now offer a private flat, instead of the room and the flat is locked off from my house. The flat does not have sea views from the deck, but it does from the bedroom. The view over the pool is where you have access to swim in the pool area and use the bbq's, along with other onsite guests.
Please note that there is no option to change to other apartments on the complex as this is the only flat offered via Airbnb.
I would prefer bookings of at least 3+ nights and happy to offer a 1 night stay, if the flat is not occupied. If I can offer a package and book the overnight sailing and a 1 night stay either side then I am happy to book this as well.

Please be courteous to other holiday guests onsite.
Cathy is a great host - very welcoming, friendly and incredibly helpful with all sorts of bookings and recommendations. The 1-bedroom flat comes with with a fully equipped kitchen, a barbie on the deck, lovely views from the bed room and is very conveniently located to Airlie Beach main street. I would easily stay at Cathy's again if I come back to Airlie.
Had a wonderful time at the Airlie Apartment. Cathy was so very helpful with all my plans. The place was nice and clean and very comfortable! I would recommend this place.
Cathy ist eine tolle Gastgeberin. Ihre "Airlie Apartments" (in diesem Fall Nr. 4) sind 5 Minuten zu Fuß von der Shopping- und Partymeile entfernt. Nah genug zum besuchen und weit genug, um von feiernden Jugendlichen nicht gestört zu werden. Dieses Apartment beinhaltet alles, was man für den Aufenthalt benötigt. Und falls einem etwas fehlt, hilft Cathy einem sehr gerne weiter. Bei Ihr scheinen viele Fäden des Airlie-Lebens zusammenzulaufen. Zumindest ist sie enorm gut informiert. Sie vermittelt auch alle möglichen Aktivitäten in der Gegend. Selbst unsere Koffer durften wir bei ihr deponieren, während es auf Segeltour ging.
Fazit: Da ich die mehrtägigen Segeltörns von Airlie aus sehr liebe und jetzt schon weiß, dass ich auch noch einen dritten irgendwann machen werde, werde ich hoffen, dass Sie Platz in einem ihrer Apartments findet. Und dann werde ich die Buchungen wohl auch über Ihren Tisch laufen lassen.
Sofort wieder. :)
Great, centrally located and met our needs perfectly. Cathy was super helpful in obtaining tours that met our needs. Highly recommend!
Thanks Jason and we have all the tour brochures in the office for you to choose from. I also have my own tour website if you wish to book in advance or add a overnight sailing tour onto the accommodation leg. I can book all those tours for you & try to offer a discount.
The place is ideal for Airlie beach and Cathy made every effort to make us feel welcome. The room was spacious, private and had lovely floors. So close to town and the Pool was great for us and the kids. The set up she has at the apartments is very organised and she can even book trips and transfers which makes everything a doddle. It doesnt feel like someones home and as such might not be for everyone on Airbnb.
Thanks for the review and you are right with what you say. I offer the home away from home but you have your own flat and space. You are staying at holiday apartments, and the flat is a an attachment to my residence with a locked door between the two areas.
With the WiFi, we are on a business plan and there is a difference to receiving the signal direct to your phone or via WiFi, as mobile phones are the weakest signal to connect to Wi Fi. Telstra controls our signal and you would find it should work well in the bedroom as opposed to the kitchen or back deck. Thanks for letting me know and I will keep an eye on it.
Merry Christmas and safe travels!!
We stay 2 nights at Cathy's apartment. The apartment is very clean with comfortable bad, modern rest room with hot and strong shower water, and completed facility included a dining area and kitchen. It locates at a quiet hill but only takes 3 minutes walking to downtown street which suits people who want to take a good rest. The best part is that we have a lovely host. Cathy gives us many useful tips to our sailing tour, also she is very thoughtful to keep the room cool down before we arrived in the hot summer day. This is the best choice to stay in Airlie Beach. I truly recommend it.
Thanks for the feedback Belinda and I am happy that you and your husband enjoyed the flat. It is in a quiet area with a nice balcony to look to the mountains. Sea views are from the bedroom only or sit by the pool area with other guests and enjoy a swim. I like my little flat and think it is comfortable for those on a budget just wanting a nice place with peace and quiet. Cathy
From our end everything was perfect. The location is absolutely amazing - being a convenient 3 minute walk to the main street as well as retaining the tranquility and privacy being located on a hill. The complex all round is great with good amenities such as the pool and laundry room. The room is an ideal size with everything you would require. Cathy was also tremendous in organising our tours and activities, liaising with the tour companies to ensure we got the best value and price. Would not think twice about staying here next time I visit Airlie!
Thanks Dean. I like my little flat as well and proud of my property Airlie Apartments. The outdoor deck is now finished with a roof added to provide shade from the morning sun and more enjoyable to sit outside and enjoy your own private BBQ, if it is raining. We book all the tours from our reception and I have built or own tour website so you can browse before booking. Have a wonderful Christmas and hope to see you again in Airlie Beach.
I have been involved in the hospitality industry for many years and have lived in Airlie Beach since December 2007 operating holiday apartments. I also have my own tour booking service for overnight sailing, day tours in the Whitsundays and Fraser Island day tours. I can book the tours for you and try to offer a discount.
I enjoy meeting the many guests that I meet through my business and travel to Airlie Beach, the Whitsundays.
I travelled for 6 weeks in Sept 2013 going to Paris, Copenhagen, Tallinn, St Petersburg, Helsinki, Stockholm, London, Birmingham, York, Edinburgh, Fort William, Cairnryan, Belfast, Wexford, Cardiff, Newquay, Port Isaac and Tokyo.
I also enjoy camping and have that on the agenda for 2014.
I like to exercise when I close the office and try to walk most days and play netball once a week. I would like to learn photography, paint and read a little more.
Many people have an interesting story about themselves, their travels and work, so I enjoy hearing their stories.
I look forward to meeting you if you get to travel to our beautiful part of the world, Airlie Beach in the Whitsundays.
*Until recently the flat beside my residence was permanently occupied and now that it is vacant, I would like to offer it to Airbnb guests, to make their travels a little easier and enjoyable*
