Stayed here with a friend. Absolutely loved it. The owners friendly and keen to help when needed. Our two bedroom apartment clean, tidy and spacious with a nice view of the pool. Excellent Coffee shop nearby. Close to main shops approximately 15 mins walk.

Units are roomy and clean and well equipped. Under cover car parking, grounds pleasant and well maintained. This time there are relieving managers (Amanda and Peter) they could not have... More

I was really impressed with the apartment. 2 big bedrooms, fully equipped kitchen, laundry facilities in the big bathroom, big lounge area & a big balcony overlooking lovely gardens. The location is about 10 minutes from the town centre. We didn't have a car but buses are frequent right outside the apartments & taxis are good, both quite reasonable prices.... More

Our accommodation was just about perfect. Great location - close enough to city so we could walk to main shopping centre (10 mins), beach etc. but far enough to be quiet and peaceful. (Nice coffee shop and cafe 1 mins walk away.) Lovely apartment, clean, light, comfy beds, balcony, well equipped kitchen, lovely shower! The whole complex was surrounded with... More

We had a wonderful time at the Citysider...Well what can we say. What a challenge these two Managers have set themselves for. Coming out to Australia, leaving their beloved South Africa for a different start in life and taking on this task to manage a fairly large establishment. All they wanted is for us to have a nice quiet stay... More

This was a wonderful complex to stay for our 5 days in Cairns, helpful staff and only a short walk to town or a $5 taxi fare. Very clean and tidy and a great barbeque area that we used. The rooms were very comfortable and clean and spacious, a good kitchen with all the facilities that you need when you... More

Found 2BR unit roomy, clean and comfortable on arrival and it had everything we needed for a reasonable price. Attractive gardens and pool area. Close to central Cairns and quiet at night but If you need to sleep during the day the noise from the few tourist trains that run during the day could be a nuisance. We received a... More
