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.

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
