In 2014 we returned twice to Palm Cove Beachfront Apartments, and when we checked out we booked again for our Christmas Holidays again in 2015, Rhonda and Chris are friendly and accommodating, the pool is fantastic and the view is the best view!!

Our apartment was a top floor, clean and comfortable tiled 1980's beach apartment with lovely views. In a great position, it is a great place to spend a relaxing beach holiday. All the best eatery's are within an easy stroll. The life savers club is right next door (surprisingly it wasn't noisy) and so you just walk across the road... More

The self contained units are situated at the quietest end of Palm Cove with the netted swimming area directly across the road. The unit we stayed in was ideal with everything possible you would need & the best balcony view ever. We dined there often enjoying the spectacular weather! Our unit was spotlessly clean & the small complex has a... More

Loved staying here, lovely apartments straight across from the beach where you can safely swim . Rhonda and Chris were fantastic and nothing was too much trouble . Chris even managed to find us a bottle of wine when we arrived on Good Friday when all shops were closed . We would definitely stay again .

Could not have asked for a better location, stayed over the Easter weekend. We had a bonus being on the 4th floor, with million dollar views from our balcony, directly opposite the swimming enclosure and in the heart of the restaurants. We intend to come back as it is just the perfect location. We cannot speak highly enough of this... More

I enjoyed my stay at Marlin Waters. The unit was spacious, the view was spectacular and the hosts were accommodating. We enjoyed the pool, the beach being steps away and the restaurants being so close by.

Superb location - across the street from the swim zone, right on the esplanade for walking or running, on the track for great food venues and wonderful hosts. We are traveling by motorbike around Australia for 10 weeks and fairly finicky about everything - cleanliness, personality, proximity to great food and this place checked all the boxes. It was recommended... More

Stayed at Marlin Waters beginning of Jan 2015. The apartment, on the third floor, was clean and comfortable with nice views. Rhonda and Chris were knowledgeable and helpful with tours and transport. Palm Cove is a small resort and Marlin Waters is conveniently situated to restaurants and bars, nothing being too much of a flat walk away. We didn't use... More

Just spent an amazing 8 nights at Marlin Waters. This is our second time to Palm Cove in three years. Chris & Rhonda are great hosts and nothing they wouldn't do for you to make your stay a breeze. We stayed on 3rd floor of a very lovely one bed apartment. Had everything we needed. Pool is very inviting especially... More
