Nice place that offers ocean view and peace on mind.Definitely worth the money we paid,i would recommend it to others.The only thing that i would consider as a "down side" (if i can call it a down side) is the transportation.It's a bit far away from the CBD where all the cafes,restaurants and the lagoon are.It would be a lot...

Close to everything, Beautiful apartment. A good cleaning is definitely due. Change of furniture in the lounge area would be great! Minh is amazing, helped us book our tours and organised everything seamlessly. Great pricing as well.

North Cove Waterfront Suites provided the perfect location for our recent 4 night stay. At the northern end of the Esplanade it is quiet but allows access to the waterfront walk which takes you right along as far as the Marina and restaurant/bar area. We walked this a few times and really enjoyed the outlook. The unit we chose was... More

Apartment is spacious, great patio to play cards on in the evening and comfortable beds but we would still not recommend this hotel to other because of the cleanliness. Upon arrival, we found black hair in the bathroom, a pubic hair in the shower, a layer of dust on the bedside table so thick you could write your name in... More

Booked 6 months in advance. Kate was brilliant in arranging everything and making sure we received a really good deal for our 21 day stay. Apartment was excellent, very well maintained and with a breathtaking balcony view over the Coral Sea. All our tours were booked by Minh at a great price and he chose well ensuring we saw all...

ezcellent rooms, friendly neighbourhood, and most importantly, the receptionists were very kind and helpful. You will definitely get what you paid for. The only downside was that the hotel is a bit far from the CBD.

Finally got home from a 3-week vacation in Australia and NZ and have a chance to share our appreciation to Kate and Minh. We rented a 3-bedroom for five nights. The apartment was everything as advertised. We were most impressed by the helpful and friendly services by Kate and Minh. They booked our tours (and passed on the discounts to... More

Amazing amazing amazing. Booking a tour for almost 30 people (2 teams of guys and wags) was no easy task but Minh and Kate were so helpful from the time we landed to when we left. They did everything possible to make out stay as enjoyable as possible and to make my job easier. The actuall apartments were fanastic, we... More

We stayed 3 nights in 2 bedroom 2 bathroom apartment on 2nd floor. The apartment was very spacious with all the amenities you could wish for and so close to the esplanade. Allocated secure undercover parking and the lift access made it very easy to come and go especially as we had our elderly mother sharing who finds stairs difficult.... More
