Sunlit apartments had been recommended to us by a friend of mine who stayed there a few years ago. Clean and spacious room, amazing view from the pool. Stuart was a great host, he came to pick us up when we arrived on the night coach from Cairns. Very friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend Sunlit apartments!

Great apartments for a variety of people. We stayed here for three days, comfy bed and friendly owner, awesome pool with great views. Kitchenette is super handy!Such a great pad to stay if you don't want to break the bank! Only downside is a short hill to walk up to but that's a great workout for the legs!
