Kate, Minh and Linda are all very friendly and helpful. They helped us to book different tours and also suggested a few fantastic spots for us to visit. I am impressed that they came up with a 6 days schedule for us to follow so I don't have to worry about what to do and where to go. Superb service!!... More

We stayed in a 3 bedroom apt for 9 nights as 2 adults, 3 children and really enjoyed our stay. The apartment was large and well-positioned, overlooking the Esplanade. It was very clean well equipped with a full kitchen and 2 bathrooms. The location is a couple of km's from the city centre, but this was a pleasant walk along... More

Lovely staff and really great rooms. Had everything we needed and a wonderful private courtyard. The pool was lovely and it really was right on the Esplanade. Unfortunately, the apartments are about 2.5km walk from the restaurant and shopping areas (though it's a beautiful walk along the waterfront), and right under the flight path of very loud planes! It's hard... More

Excellent location a 15 minute walk from downtown along. big bright apartment, very friendly reception who booked our itinerary for the week. The only downside was the frustratingly unreliable Internet.

We had an excellent time in Cairns and the North Cove Waterfront Suites were simply marvelous. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The Grounds were beautiful and the location perfect-- close for a drive to CBD but far enough away from the Ironman crowds (we were there for GBR and Kuranda and other sites- not the competition). WE enjoyed... More

Thank you for your kind words and we are glad you enjoyed your stay at North Cove and in Cairns. Ground floor apartments are very popular with families because of their large private courtyards; especially those with young children as they have direct gated access to the lawns. We're glad that we could assist during your stay and hope to... More

Had a very enjoyable and comfortable stay. Great facilities and lovely pool. The rooms were very clean and well equipped, lovely views. The managers would go out of their way to assist with any requests and were very helpful with organising tours. Amazing location being right on the doorstep of Cairns foreshore!

A real good apartment and staff were more than helpful with good advice on tours! Being situated at the north side if Cairns it's a bit of a walk to bars and resterants etc but saying that we enjoyed the walk! I would deff stay there again!

My daughter and her 2 daughters along with my sister stayed here over the new year in a 2 bedroom suite fully self contained. great location away to the north from the city centre opposite a great kids park. great price and location, considering it was over the new year break.

Having not been to North Queensland for 20 years and so soon after cyclone Ita, we did not know what to expect. We travelled to and from Brisbane on the Spirit of Queensland ( never again ) so the comfortable bed was the first big plus after a 25 hour trip. We were delighted to find somewhere that had both...

We stayed in the apartment with kitchenette. It had most the things you need to make basic meals for yourself. its a 30 minute walk to the main hub of Cairns but such a beautiful walk and being further out made it nice and peaceful. the airport is extremely close but the over head plane noise was not a problem....

We are glad you enjoyed your stay in the kitchenette. The Esplanade is certainly a beautiful walk into town, whether it is for just a peaceful stroll or for exercise. It was lovely to meet you both and we look forward to having you stay again in the future. More
