Interaction with Guests
We will provide as much interaction as you like. From our years crewing on superyachts, we have traveled extensively and enjoy meeting new people and making new friends. If you would like a more private experience, that is perfectly fine, but please note that the house is open plan design, so the only true private place is the guest room or bathroom!
Our house is on a very quiet dead end street. It is conveniently located near the shops, transportation, Cannonvale beach and the beautiful walk to the marina, lagoon and town.
There is a bus stop located at the end of the street only a minute or two walk. Cannonvale beach is a few minutes walk away, which starts the path/boardwalk to Abell Point Marina and then onto the lagoon and Airlie's town centre. The Cannonvale shopping center is about a 5-10 minute walk and has a Coles, various takaway places, Country Target, Chemist, bottle shop, etc. If you have a car, there is off street parking available in front of the house. If you are coming via the airport, share taxis are available for $15 to the door and take approximately half an hour.

Even though our days were packed with trips and we actually didn't end up spending that much time at Amy's and Jack's place besides sleeping, I have to say that our stay was absolutely great. We enjoyed not being in the middle of all the 'downtown' Airlie Beach hustle and bustle, but still close enough to comfortably walk to a restaurant for dinner (check out Sorrento at Abel Point!).
Amy made us feel absolutely welcome and definitely went beyond what you'd expect from an airbnb host. She even did our laundry while we were gone for a day tour to the Great Barrier Reef. In the morning all our clothes were in a plastic bag and when we came back everything was clean and folded waiting in front of our room. Thank you so much for that once more!
Amy's dog Bosun was also a very vivid element of our stay. I think I've rarely seen a dog that was happier to be around strangers than Bosun.
I had a great time! Its an amazing place and amy was so uncomplicated and just lovely! I could do an overnight trip and let my stuff there! And her dog bosun is just adorable! The house and room are very clean and so nice! Its the perfect stay for the whitsundays!
Wonderful stay with Amy. Her home was super comfortable. The location was great and we loved the pool, our air conditioned bedroom (it was very warm), and the private bathroom. Who could ask for anything more?
Amy was very helpful and provided great information about where to eat and tour recommendation. We were very happy and comfortable during our stay.
Great location which was easy to find, a lovely room with adjacent bathroom.
We had a wonferdul stay at Amy's place. She was very helpful. The housse was fiting our needs perfectly, we had a full access to the kitchen, the room was clean and fresh. The location was perfect (close of the bus stop). Don't hesitate to go there if you are on vacation in the whitsunday.
About the Host, Jack & Amy
I am an American who met my husband Jack in Airlie Beach whilst backpacking around Australia many moons ago! We recently returned home to Australia after 15 years working overseas on Super Yachts.
We are both outgoing, friendly and love meeting new people and sharing our travel experiences. We both grew up on the water and love to sail, dive, snorkel, snowboard and are trying to learn to kite surf. Jack is a marine engineer and is often away, but if you do catch him at home, you are in for some great stories! I am into keeping fit, yoga, like to cook and definitely enjoy a nice bottle of wine.
We both love the Whitsundays and are happy to give you as much local knowledge as possible to make your stay spectacular!
