Pinnacles Resort

If breathtaking views of Airlie Beach catch your fancy, you must simply check out Pinnacles Resort. Perched atop Golden Orchid Drive, this resort offers stunning panoramic views of the Coral Sea that you can enjoy from your very own apartment balcony or the incredible rooftop infinity pool. The only downside? The resort sits at the top of a rather sizeable hill, so you must either be up for the walk back or consider renting a car (or calling a taxi). But once you're there, you can choose from a range of one, two, or three-bedroom apartments, an internal balcony jacuzzi or internal spa tub, laundry facilities, and a fully equipped kitchen.

Whitehaven Beachfront Holiday Units 

The Whitehaven Beachfront Holiday Units offer comfortable and well-equipped accommodations just steps away from the beach in Airlie Beach. Each unit can accommodate up to four guests and features air conditioning, a kitchenette, and free Wi-Fi, with most units also offering a small balcony area with beach views.

The location is ideal for families with easy access to nearby restaurants and supermarkets. Guests can also enjoy free parking and laundry facilities on-site. With its self-contained nature and close proximity to the beach and lagoon, the Whitehaven Beachfront Holiday Units are an excellent option for families seeking convenient and comfortable accommodation in Airlie Beach.

Island Gateway Holiday Park

Island Gateway is a fantastic choice for families looking for a conveniently located holiday park on the outskirts of Airlie Beach. The park is just a 20-minute walk from town, so you can easily access all the local attractions while enjoying a peaceful stay away from the hustle and is one of many things isn't the only thing that sets Island Gateway apart from other holiday parks in the area.

Island Gateway boasts a standout feature: its amicable staff. They consistently make it their mission to ensure guests have a comfortable and enjoyable stay. Guests also love the convenience of having a coffee van on site in the morning and food at night, as well as the resort amenities such as the resort pool, barbecue areas, laundry facilities, children's playground, and kiosk/shop. Take advantage of the daily bird feeding session in the afternoon, where you can get up close and personal with the local rainbow lorikeets and whistling ducks. With a range of lodgings available, from villas and cabins to motel rooms and even permanent canvas tents, there's something to suit every family's needs at Island Gateway. Plus, they offer pet-friendly and pet-free areas, so your furry friends are welcome too.

Coral Sea Marina Resort

Check out Coral Sea Marina Resort for a luxurious stay with stunning sea views. Their 25-meter outdoor pool, surrounded by palm trees, sun loungers, and parasols, is definitely the resort's highlight. There's even an adult swing where you can relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery.

The hotel underwent renovations in 2019 and 2020 to give it a fresh and modern look. The rooms are bright and breezy, with a whitewashed interior and pops of color. Some rooms even offer ocean views. For a truly boutique experience, book a king room with a balcony, the most recently renovated room category. The location is also great as it's right in the heart of the town, with easy access to bars and restaurants.

Colonial Court Beach Front Motel

Colonial Court is ideal for families seeking affordable accommodation without compromising location. These studio apartments offer an excellent choice for four families, with two single beds and one double bed. Larger families can opt for the two-bedroom apartment with two double and bunk beds. All rooms have a kitchenette complete with an entire oven, large fridge/freezer, and balcony, making them perfect for families who love to cook. You'll also enjoy air conditioning, free wifi, and free onsite parking throughout your stay.

While the kitchens in these studios are great, there are also excellent dining options just a few minutes' walk away. Additionally, Abel Point, where many excursions leave from, is just a 12-minute walk or 1km away. If you plan sailing or diving, this hotel's location couldn't be more convenient. With all these features and affordable prices, Colonial Court offers excellent value for families on a budget.
