“The absolute best place ever! We had the most incredible stay! The staff were fabulous – so kind and accommodating. The views are insane, and the boat bungalow stays are so cute. THANK YOU for making my birthday and our trip the most incredible experience!” - Emma & Luke
“Little piece of paradise. I loved the style of accommodation – it’s something different. Being a small resort, made it feel very private. The staff were absolutely lovely. The restaurant was only a short, enjoyable stroll away and was in a beautiful setting. I will definitely be back for a longer stay.” – Rebecca
“A resort with a difference. Our own private boat on land (no sea legs here). Friendly staff, Northerlies just a short walk for a great meal and some cocktails, then a fabulous sunrise and breakfast on the deck. Will be coming back.” – Paul
'We stayed at Freedom Shores for 3 nights at the end of our time in Airlie Beach and it was perfect. We felt like we had the time and permission to just stop and relax due to its location. The staff were so lovely and made you feel part of the family. You could tell they were relaxed and loved what they did.' – Duane
