"High Tide" - Whitsundays Beachfront Accommodation
Our Whitsunday dream vacation came true at the High Tide House! The moment we stepped inside, we were speechless. The views are absolutely stunning and it felt like we'd stepped into a postcard!Every moment at High Tide House was pure enjoyment for our family. We spent countless hours lounging by the pool, and exploring the house, which was meticulously clean and stocked with everything we needed. The layout was perfect – spacious enough for everyone to relax and unwind, yet cozy with beautiful views from every room. This home truly caters to everyone, from families like us to friend groups or couples seeking a romantic getaway.The convenience of the location was fantastic. We could easily walk to Fat Frog Beach Cafe or Mrs. Bean for a coffee, and Airlie Beach was just a short drive away for further adventures.The true star of High Tide House was the outdoor area with breathtaking views of the Whitsundays. It was the perfect spot to unwind and reconnect with family, creating lasting memories. A huge thank you to Whitsunday Vacations for their amazing service! Everything from communication to check-in was smooth sailing, and they made sure the house was perfect for our arrival. They really went above and beyond to make this an unforgettable trip. Thank you for everything! 5 stars all the way ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Beautiful view, very large space, oversized patios, super close to the centre of town with all of the shops/tours and restaurants. Honestly it’s a perfect location to stay and relax. It’s a 10/10 and then some. Spend the money and book this place. Cheers from Vancouver Canada.

23 The Cove - Whitsunday Waterfront Living
From the moment we walked through the double doors we were in love. Fantastic house that has just about everything. The house is neat, tidy and very comfortable for a larger family or a group of friends. Close to the main street of Airlie means we didn’t have to drive anywhere and we could sip cocktails all day long, enjoying the wonderful view from the back deck.Worth spoiling yourself at least once with a getaway here.

Cove 18 Luxury Whitsunday Waterfront Beach House
This place was exceptional! The house was modern, beautifully furnished and in one of the best locations in the Whitsundays. It was safe and secure with views that you could look at all day. Everything was supplied that you could possibly need, and the place was in walking distance to the heart of Airlie Beach. Host was really helpful, responsive and friendly - definitely felt well looked after. Can't wait to go back!
