Beautiful apartment. Very spacious - including the kitchen, lounge, dining, bedroom and bathroom as well as the decks outside. Truly puts you in relaxation mode. Lovely outlook, private and peaceful. Our top apartment was just perfect.

Everything about Argosy was excellent. It has lifts. Clean & comfortable with lovely spots on the deck where we ate our meals. The office lady is lovely making us very welcome providing us with wifi. The beach is glorious & it is quiet.

Really nice roomy unit with views to the beach, friendly staff, undercover parking, clean and comfortable. 5 min drive to shopping facilities and eateries, 25 - 30 metres to ocean. A quiet location, central to most activities.

We very much enjoyed our stay at Argosy. It is about a 15- 20 minute drive into central Cairns. The location is lovely and quiet across the road from the beach. Apartments are older and privately owned but quite well maintained. We had lovely views from our spacious apartment and balcony. The gardens and pool area are superb. The manager... More

We were travelling as 2 families and got two apartments on the ground floor. Location was good but the two apartments were totally different in style. One apartment had been updated (204) and the other looked like it was unchanged since built (203). The pool was convenient and the kids loved it and the sauna. The pool spa was not... More

We were very impressed with the accommodation and facilities and location. We give it 10 out of 10. To be able to see the beach from the verandah, and walk across the road to the beach was fabulous. We enjoyed the quieter nature of Clifton Beach also.

We can't speak highly enough of our stay at Argosy on the Beach. Karen and Angelo were lovely friendly people who provided us with everything we needed. Also got to know Fletcher their feisty but affectionate Fox Terrier who loves you to play 'ball' with him. Karen is the 'go to person' if you are booking tours, looking for great... More

We decided to stay away from main city of Cairns and chose the beautiful setting of Clifton Beach. Argosy on the Beach has everything you could need, peace, quiet, well appointed rooms, lots of space, amazing views, incredibly friendly and helpful owners and walking distance to a little shopping centre that has everything you might need for self catering. also...

We were blessed to find these apartments and to get to stay for 3 whole weeks. we loved every minute of it! As a family of 4 originally from Scotland who now live in California, this was a dream trip. Only a few steps to the beautiful Clifton Beach was simply breathtaking. The apartments were spacious, clean, all around wonderful... More

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.
