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 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.

There is a balcony on the back and front of the apartment and from these we watched kangaroos feeding, this was the only place in Australia we saw them in the 'wild'.
