5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed in a two-bedroom apartment on the eighth floor which gave us great views of the Strand and of Magnetic Island - having two balconies enhanced these views! The apartment was really spacious and very well equipped. The location of the apartment is excellent with easy access to the Ferry to Magnetic Island and to the city centre.

Lovely three bedroom apartment with views over Townsville Esplanade, beach and Magnetic Island. Well positioned for walking along the Esplanade, restaurants in Flinders Street and the ferry to Magnetic Island. Nice pool too.

This lovely clean and roomy 2 bedroom apartment was everything and more with the most stunning view direct over the beach and out to your right to Magnetic Island. Because it was an incredibly hot weekend we couldn't spend all our time out on the balcony but we could still enjoy from inside the apartment from each bedroom as well... More

We keep coming back to Mariner's for good reason.... It's simply the best place on the mainland! We love the 3-bed apartments that have balconies facing both north-east AND south-east.. Perfect for your morning coffee or evening sundowners as the views over The Strand, of magnificent Maggie Island, and the boats at the Marina, are quite mesmerising. Evening and morning... More

This is a very spacious two bedroom apartment with a great view over the water. It was reasonably well kept however could do with a bit of a freshen up. Location is a little out of the way if you have no car but still is walkable to the city centre. Air conditioning worked well but when one left the... More

Perfectly placed complex to make the most of water views and sun. All apartments face the water/beach and most balconies receive almost day long sun. Large complex of various sized well equipped apartments to suit most family needs. Extremely well run in and efficient but very friendly manner. Very clean both inside and the grounds ie. pool and garden. Moments... More
