Beautiful property with great service. The boat cabins are clean and fairly new. The hotel is further away from Airlie Beach so you’re a little bit isolated and will need the shuttle service or bus to head into town. The hotel is great if you want a place to unwind and relax.

Wow! What a fab place to stay. Great for a couple of nights relaxation. On-site bar and restaurants both good and live music was a plus. Plenty to choose from at breakfast. Little touches like insect repellent and sun cream were appreciated.

Stayed in beach shack. Over priced motel. Loud music at night, loud garbage truck in morning. Great views. Staff unwilling to help when needed. Transportation stinks. Restaurant serves mediocre food at expensive prices. Felt like I was in a pretty prison. Never again.

Paradise in Airlie ☀️
Freedom Shores was incredible and we can’t recommend it enough! The resort is located north of Airlie Beach, but don’t let the location put you off - easy access to main areas, but also secluded in your own peaceful Haven. The location was to die for - away from the hustle and bustle of Airlie, and bar and grill a short 2 minute walk away at Northerlies. The room was awesome, old boat converted into hotel film with air con, ensuite and all necessities you need. Super comfortable bed, and plenty of towels and beach towels to keep you going at the pool and many beaches nearby. The facilities were great: relaxing pool area overlooking the sea and nearby whitsunday islands; bar and lounge at reception; phenomenal breakfast included with everything you could ever need; and meals a short walk away. We loved the meals so much we ate primarily at Northerlies. The staff were incredible and made our stay amazing, and gave us tips of where to go. Thank you to everyone at Freedom Shores - you’ve got a fantastic setup and we look forward to returning soon!
Sunrise at the resort - stunning views!
