We stayed here for 4 nights last week, 4 adults and 1 child in a 3 bed apartment. We found the apartment to be clean and suitably equipped for our needs. The staff were great, they helped us find/book the best value excursion up to Karunda. The pool was a welcome retreat on our return from our days out, it... More

Nice to stay in a smaller complex (approx 40 self contained apartments), and away from the Cairns CBD. I had a week here over Christmas 2015 in Apartment 38 (one bedroom), on the top/ fifth floor, and it was lovely to have the view over the Esplanade out over the water to Green Island (not all apartments have water views,...

Spent a few days here over Christmas using it as a home base while on an overnight dive trip to the Great Barrier Reef. We had a difficult time with the wifi, but other than that, the suite was clean and well equipped.

Hi Leila, Sorry to hear the apartment did not live up to your expectations, however there are a few important points that you are missing. It is important to understand that the apartment that you booked is the exact apartment that is displayed on the website through which you booked.

The rooms where clean, quiet and the fact of security under cover car park was great. The apartment was a great size for a family of four, bathrooms were good size, the ocean view was lovely as well as the grounds area and the other side was mountain view I would say the best of both worlds would go there...

Stayed here in September in a 2 bedroom apartment and a had a great time. Nice views and comfortable beds a good place for a base in Cairns. It was enjoyable to sit on the balcony of an early evening and watch everyone go past on the Esplanade. Staff were very helpfiul.

We travel to Cairns for family holiday every year and this is where we choose to stay each time. It is much more relaxing and quieter than staying in city centre. It is a beautiful 20 min walk or 2 min drive to town. Every time we use the pool we have it to ourselves as this is not a... More

Good place to base yourself for a trip to Cairns and the surrounding areas. Not too far from Cairns city centre and most tour operators will collect from outside. Apartments were of a good size, good amenities provided and friendly staff.

Stayed here for a week with friends whilst we played golf & went fishing and couldn't be more comfortable. We had a 2 bedroom apt and could not want for anything. Beautiful view over the park & water. Highly recommend as close to the city centre but far enough away not to be disturbed.
