Thanks for the great review, we are glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Not being in the middle of the city is definitely quieter and safer for everyone, yet not too far away and can still be walked to easily by most. Hope you had a great trip back home to the USA, hope to see you back again... More

I am simply can't get over the other reviews on this place, i must be the exception i guess. The room was a bit on the "tired" side of things.

We recently had a 'flying' visit Cairns and Tradewinds McLeod Holiday Apartments provided us with every need. The apartments are functional, comfortable and very clean. It was wonderful to kick back by the pool and simply enjoy the surrounds. Excellent location for walking along the famous Cairns Esplanade and great base to explore the beautiful Northern Beaches.

Having not been to Far North Queensland before, I needed a good "base camp" to explore the region. Tradewinds McLeod is on the edge of Cairns and North Cairns which was either a short bus trip or a walk down the Esplanade to the CBD.
