Kids just loved it, well so did us adults !!. It was so nice to be able to sit on the balcony and watch... More

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.

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!
