A perfect location for a family get-away. The building is right on the Strand with views of Magnetic Island as well as the mariner. The 2 bedroom apartment that we stayed in was massive with 2 individual balconies on either side to change the view. The building is located on a no through road meaning that the overall noise from... More

We were totally happy with accomodation at Mariners North while attending Townsville's Running Festival. The spacious unit had a practical kitchen, lounge area and deck which took full advantage of the sea view and breeze. Ammenities of BBQ, pool and tennis court were well used, but not at invasive of our privacy as the house rules were clearly respected. Management... More

These apartments are situated at the southern end of The Strand and are within easy walking distance to many lovely restaurants and shops. From the big balcony we had a lovely view of Magnetic Island and gorgeous sunsets in the evenings. Our apartment was well equipped and very comfortable although a little dated in some areas.
