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

We often travel back to Townsville to see my extended family (I have my own family with teenage children and won't impose on sleeping on my relatives' lounge room floor) I have stayed in quite a few different apartment accommodations in Townsville over the years and have decided that Mariner's North is the best and only place we will stay...

Stayed here recentlly in a 3 bedroom apartment for 4 months. Extremely well maintained property, located on the Strand. The staff are always friendly and helpful and any minor maintenance issues were fixed rapidly. The BBQ and pool are immaculate. Would definitely stay here again.

We had a great holiday - our second visit to Mariners. The apartment is clean, modern and in a great location. The pool is beautiful and kept the kids entertained, and we had a perfect view of the fireworks for NYE. We stayed 5 nights, will definitely stay again!

This is the second time we have stayed here. The location is very central with great views. The apartments are spacious, well appointed and the beds are comforatble too. There is also secure undercover carparking on site. Except for some initial battery issues with the remote control for the garage, which was very quickly fixed, everything was in good working...

We have stayed here 3 times now, and love it. The location is brilliant for access to the strand, waterpark, playgrounds, coffee, meals...a great place for children to stay. The apartments are clean and well appointed. Some are showing their age in some areas, could do with 'renovating' but this doesn't bother us. We had a spacious 3 bed apartment... More

Very large apartment with stunning views. Stayed for 5 nights and would like to have stayed more. The whole area and grounds are beautifully kept. We were on the second floor overlooking the pool and could watch the turtles swimming off the beach from our balcony. Would definitely stay there again if we are ever back in Australia.

Hi Rosieha, Thank you for your review & pointing out the wild life you can see from our apartment balconies. Turtles are a common sight in the waters of Cleveland Bay & certainly our apartments offer a great vantage point to see them. We do take pride in our gardens & glad that you had the opportunity to enjoy them... More

Reviews were all true to their word. Apartments were clean, spacious and well appointed. We followed review suggestions to request an apartment on the higher floors in the tower block and had awesome views. Great location with easy access to the Strand, restaurants and children's playgrounds. A fantastic family holiday!

Hi Alidee, What can I say? Thank you for such a wonderful review on Mariners North. There's no doubt that the weather in Townsville would be a little more balmy than in Scotland. I hope to see you back in Townsville if you get the opportunity to visit Australia again. Kind Regards, Brett Thompson Owner Operator More
