We realized in retrospect that we should have rented a car out of Cairns airport as public transport around Trinity Beach is very limited. A trip to Port Douglas was prolonged by numerous detours to pick up and drop people off and a great waste of time. Apart from this nuisance we found the location delightful and quite convenient to...

Great service from Stephanie. The apartments were clean and modern and had more than enough supplies of kitchen, laundry, bedroom and bathroom needs. Love the lagoon pool and close vicinity to the beach, cafés, restaurants. A short 20minute drive to Cairns airport and Kuranda market village in the hills. Looking forward to going back.

We stayed at the Marlin Cove Holiday Resort for four nights. Our accommodation was a modern, well-furnished apartment overlooking the swimming pool. The apartment was comfortable with a modern kitchen, full fridge and electric stove. There was a small laundry in a cupboard. The bed was king-sized and very comfortable. One niggle was the difficulty of connecting to their Wi-fi... More
