We picked these apartments because they have very spacious apartments. As a couple we opted for a one bedroom apartment and we were very pleased overall - well equipped kitchen with all facilities, large dining and living area, good sized bedroom with walk-in robe and good-sized bathroom. There were air conditioners in both areas. Parking for one car and good... More

Beautiful view, roomy suite with a nice balcony. Nice updated kitchen with dishwasher and washer & dryer. If you are not on a tour, you will need a car if you want to check out the town and nearby attractions (casino, diving, wildlife...etc). The hotel managers, Minh & Katie were super nice and helpful with providing tips and sight-seeing info... More

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!
