This was a lovely relaxing place to stay. It was clean, well furnished and situated close to everything. The balcony was a great place to relax in the afternoon overlooking the ocean. There were nice sea breezes which made it very comfortable.

Waters Edge was the perfect place for our holiday to Cairns. It was spacious, modern and had a large balcony with ocean views. There was even a spa bath in the ensuite! The location also suited us as it was on the esplanade which made it really easy to walk to the main area of town. There was also 2... More

I stayed at the Waters Edge Apartments in Cairns with my family for a week. The accommodation was very nice and pool was great! The receptionist was friendly and gave us good ideas for things to do whilst we were there. The short walk to restaurants and shops made this holiday enjoyable for everyone in my family.

We stayed 11 days with our 2 teenage boys in an apartment on the 6th floor. Apartment was lovely - home away from home. Modern and functional kitchen. Bright and comfortable living room and bedroom. All appliances worked perfectly. Swimming pool lovely. Honestly I would have a hard time finding a negative comment and my standards are high!

We booked a 3 bedroom apartment for 6 guys celebrating 2 birthdays. We were very hesitant in booking the accommodation as we were worried we may have been pointed to stay elsewhere. We stayed for 3 nights and were very surprised we had no complaints as we were quite loud during the day with music. There is a "No Party... More

Swim out apartment enjoys a quiet view of the Esplanade (pass the main restaurants area and facing the kid playground) and direct access to the pool Spacious balcony to enjoy sunset Drawback is that the pool is for sharing and when you sit in the lounge, you can hear noise from other guests in the pool
