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

We stayed on 3rd floor of a very lovely one bed apartment. Had everything we needed. Pool is very inviting especially... More

No need to worry about monsoonal weather. Summer time is hot but that's what's sensational about Palm Cove. Swim in the pool or the ocean in the nets directly opposite Marlin Waters. We have now stayed with Rhonda and Chris quite a few times and love our stays there with everything on your doorstep. So much to do and so... More
