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

It was a great introduction to Australia and New Zealand. Karen and Angelo were so helpful in helping to make our plans for tours. While we were there we scheduled a day at the Great Barrier Reef and Daintree Forest. We they were such nice tours. The two bedroom apartment was just great for the two couples who were traveling...

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.

This apartment is in a brilliant position overlooking the beach. The apartment was spotless and very well equipped. 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'. Karen, the manager, is very knowledgeable about the area and... More
