We stayed for 8 nights in July 2014. Our two teenages loved staying next to the pool and bbq area. Service desk was very helpful in booking a tour. The secure parking was good and we all enjoyed some nightly short walks to the Esplanade for dinner. Shops and a shopping centre are also close by too. Would definately stay... More

We stayed here for four nights and it was perfectly located with everything within walking distance but just out of the busyness of the tourist strip. This suited us perfectly and the late check- in was no problems. Staff all very helpful and provided great information.

We stayed at Getaway apartments on Grafton St Cairns for 8 nights during July 2014. The rooms are all very comfortable and have modern appliances. Our room had 2 bathrooms which was a great help as we travelled with teenage kids. We had an apartment at the rear which overlooked the pool and BBQ area. There is plenty of secure... More

The place was nice and clean with modern decor and facilities. The beds were a bit hard but I suppose that is personal preference. Otherwise very helpful staff and nice good value accommodation. Good location too

We just had a week to spare and were looking for somewhere close to everything in the city. Getaway was a great choice. The apartment was spacious and the balcony meant we could sit in the sun and have our breakfast. The weather was great for the week, even though the locals said it was quite cool! We had a... More

Thank you for taking your time to review your stay with us. I am glad that you experienced some sunshine and warmer temperatures than in Melbourne. Cool weather is all relative, up here it means that the temperature drops to around 12 degrees Celsius over night and daytime highs are in the mid-twenties. Regards, Markus More

Spent 4 nights here in July 2014. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel most welcome by our hosts. Our flight from Adelaide was an early one, so we were in Cairns by 11am and far too early to check in. However, Markus at Getaway on Grafton was most helpful, storing our cases while we went for...

We stayed at Getaway on Grafton last week for a total of 6 nights. The manager (Kevin) was very friendly and helpful, with nothing too much to ask. There was a cancellation the previous day, so knowing we had children, he changed our room to the ground floor, with direct gate access to the pool. Kevin was a wealth of... More

Thank you, Ophet, for your very positive review. We are always happy to help with information and tips so our guests can make the best of their time in Cairns. Thanks also for mentioning Muddy's playground. Having this playground so close by makes Getaway's two bedroom apartments perfect for families. Regards, Markus More

We just completed another very successful event tour in Cairns, making great use of the excellent accommodation and facilities at Getaway for our 3rd time in countless visits to Cairns over the past 10+ years. So we tried quite a few. Getaway really is as it's described. The rooms are genuinely spacious (2 Br/2Br on double story apartment provides incredible... More
