The room was perfect, the location even better! Across the road from a kids foreshore water park, this location was the perfect place to stay for our family while I competed in the Cairns IM! We loved the proximity (walking distance) back to the foreshore pools and marina! The perfect holiday!

This was our first stop in Australia, and boy-did it set the bar high! Gorgeous apartment, very clean and beautifully decorated, with beautiful views of the Esplanade. Managers are on property and super friendly. Very close taxi ride to the airport. Kitchen was well supplied for making meals at home. If I were to ever go back to Cairns, I... More

3 bedroom apartment was perfect. We loved the view and all the features of the apartment. Waters edge is within walking distance of many restaurants and grocery stores. We loved sitting out on the deck at night drinking a glass of wine relaxing after a busy day. It was also great to have 2 full bathrooms for 5 adults.

Very comfortable, a spectacular view from our 6th floor apartment. Comfy lounge, kitchen large and well appointed. There is air con in each room, and a large balcony. Very convenient location, a walk to the marina for reef tours.

We choose this place for many reasons, but most significantly, it's large entertaining areas. We had guest/families and friends over for dinner and it was just the ideal spot. This apartment has 3 comfortable bedrooms, with TV in each bedroom -plus one in the lounge room - kitchen clean and well stocked with appliances, though it would be ideal if... More

A lot of the units in this complex are residential, so above our unit there were small children running up and down at 6am each morning and riding their little tricycles in the unit above us so it was annoying in that respect, because when you're on holiday you would sometimes like a little sleep in. Other than that the... More

My husband and I stayed here with our toddler and grandma and we all loved it. We enjoyed a 3 bedroom ocean view apartment which was nice and very spacious, even the balcony was big. It had everything we needed in the kitchen to cook with and nice appliances too. The beds and pillows are very comfortable and plenty of... More

The apartments are spacious, clean and well appointed and fully self contained. The rooms are a great size. Fits 6 adults no problem. If you get in early... More

We stayed here for a week in August as a family with our three twenty-year old children (yes, triplets). An apartment suits us better than a hotel as we can all relax together rather than spreading out between hotel rooms. We stayed in an apartment on the fifth floor. It had a lovely large balcony where we ate breakfast every... More
