My wife Tracey and I stayed here back in 2011 and this April 2014 we were lucky enough to take another vacation in the beautiful city of Cairns. Back in 20011 we were delighted with the accomodation and the warm and friendly hosts which is Keryn & Paul which led us back to this great place to stay. Another great... More

I didn't get to stay at this apartment but was booked in for the weekend which happened to be the same as Cyclone Ita was due. When I booked the unit I asked if they could send a confirmation email and was told that they could if I really wanted but the booking was ok and there really wasn't any... More

Hello Marion Thankyou for your concerns regarding our cancellation policy. I think you would find that all accommodation complexes have the same policy. Sorry you felt that the amount was to harsh. We only took 1 night of your stay. We wish you good luck and apoligize for any misunderstandings. More

We stayed in a modern, roomy, well appointed 2 bedroom unit with everything we could have possibly wanted. Secure parking and very friendly staff. Close enough to shopping centres. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Cairns Reef apartments and Motel is very good value if you are looking for a extended holiday as they have some great deals. The accommodation is 3.5 star and our motel unit was clean and comfortable. The only negative was that the unit was not serviced. This may have been because we were there over Christmas.

I stayed here during the week of the Total solar eclipse (Nov 2012) and it was a great spot to base myself. Getting to town was easy, a bus stop right outside the gate and the drivers known the stop on the way back from town ($A3.50 each way). The owners were always friendly and helpful and offer great advice... More

Our family of 4 stayed here for 12 nights and used it as our base to explore cairns and the surrounding areas. We found our apartment to be very spacious and contained everything we needed. Having a kitchen and laundry inside the apartment was very useful. It was situated a little out of town but we had a car so... More

We found the owners of Cairns Reef Apartments to be very friendly, knowledgable and accommodating. The room was older fashioned but clean, and had everything we needed. We knew when we booked it was an older style, so we were happy with what we found. The pool is lovely, the air con & fan were well used! Highly recommended if... More

The apartments are a good size with seperate bedrooms and lounge, clean comfortable and free movie channel on Tv,nice secluded pool. City centre is about 15 minutes drive away and thats where you will need to go to eat as there are no restaurants in the area. Beaches are a similar distance but check the season (Stingers and crocs !).Keryn... More

We spent the final night of our holiday here. For our small budget it was a great surprise to arrive and find we were were staying in a nice room. It may not be the fanciest, but it was well presented, clean, comfortable and completely quiet regardless of a nearby highway. We had undercover parking beneath the tennis courts, and... More
