Can't praise these apartment highly enough. We had one on the fifth floor overlooking the sea front. Enormous balcony. Fantastic views. The apartment was fully equipped with modern quality appliances. Very quiet location at the end of the main part of the promenade. Just a few minutes from restaurants and only 10 minute walk to the harbour end of town.... More

This is Cairns so we weren't expecting a high class place. This place is definitely not a 5 star apartment. It was clean at first and in a good location just down the street from all the restaurants and shops (FYI just a tad bit far to walk when raining). There's definitely other comparable places that were closer and at... More

We had booked two, side by side 3 bed apartments. The ones on the ground floor with large entertainment area. 10 boys all up, staying in Cairns for 4 days. The apartments were both excellent and far out weighed my expectations. Everything that was needed was there, we didn't have to make any calls to have things fixed or replaced.... More

We stayed here in Nov 2013, 5 adults, the apartment was large & comfortable (we had a 3 bdrm apartment). It was lovely & quite, & not too far to walk to many places in Cairns. Plenty of room, would recommend a stay here to everyone.

We stayed in Unit 2 (swim out apartment). We were terribly disappointed with the service we received. We felt the manager was rather insensitive to our complains. All the so called modern appliances were either not functioning well or not provided with any instruction manual. It was a challenge to cut even a tomato with the kitchen knives provided. Air...

There were 5 of us going on this trip so we decided to go with a 3-bedroom apartment at Waters Edge rather than getting 2 or 3 regular hotel rooms and I have to say it was a great decision. The owners were fantastic and very welcoming, providing us with free covered garage access right when we arrived to use... More

The quality of the rooms and furnishings ect were very good. Excellent location especially if you have small kids who want to swim or go to the great kids playground and water park directly across the road. The Hosts were very helpful and friendly.
