We stayed here for a week during the first week of Jan 15, and I must say was the most relaxing stay, right in front of the beach, good sized apartment beach views. Fully equipped kitchen and great host, Karen and Angelo kudos.

We stayed at Argosi in october and it was perfect. As a family of four adults we found the apartments to be spacious and comfortable with two bathrooms and bedrooms. The views are incredible with the ocean just across the road. It was a lovely quiet spot which was close to Cairns and the northern beaches. I can't speak highly... More

Argosy is situated approx 20 mins north of Cairns half way between Trinity Beach and Palm Cove which are both holiday resorts. Clifton Beach is a nice quiet and laid back location with Argosy Apartments set in mature immaculate gardens (inc a small pool). Car... More

We stayed at Argosy on the Beach for seven nights in May 2014. The apartment was gigantic, with a full kitchen, full dining room area, and big living room in addition to the bathroom, bedroom, and laundry room (which was a pleasant surprise, and proved quite useful for washing and drying our towels--more on that below). The apartment was clean,... More

Argosy on the Beach was the perfect "home" base for us to explore Cairns! The proprietors, Karen and Angelo, could not be more gracious and helpful. They gave wonderful advice on the best activities for our family and as a result we were able to achieve a perfect balance of active and "down" time, very important if you have kids!... More

We stayed for 9 nights and had a great time. We had a second floor apartment with a beautiful view of the beach right across the road from the front, and of the back lawn & bush with wallaby families feeding from the back. The apartment is very spacious, light, airy and well furnished. The fully equipped kitchen is the... More

We stayed 6 nights and enjoyed our stay. It is close to the city of Cairns and very quite area with full amenities of shopping, eating places and for the supply of daily needs. The resident manager is always helpful. Delightful morning and evening walks on the clean beach. Very relaxing. A. & N. Palit from Melbourne.
