Having arrived from Sydney as part of our 3 week holiday we were hoping to be able to chill during our 10 day stay. I'm so glad we opted for these appartments, as from our arrival to our check out we had no complaints whatsoever. Melissa checked us in and provided us with a comprehensive account of both the appartment... More

We arrived at the same time a cyclone Nathan, which was a shame! However, we found the apartment to be fantastic. We arrived after hours and it was easy the locate the key and our apartment, despite the rain! The apartment has everything you need - and it was a great opportunity to do some laundry during a long holiday.... More

What a shame you arrived the same time as Cyclone Nathan. In saying that, it appears this didn't dampen your spirits and you were still able to have a lovely break. I am so glad your enjoyed your stay and we welcome you back - just try to avoid Cyclones next time :) Kind regards Melissa - Manager More

We have just returned home after 4 weeks at On the Beach 1 bed. The apartments are fantastically situated out of Cairns to the North, and definitely on the beach!! We had a car for the full 4 weeks and travelled every day to various locations. And then returned to a great pool, so warm that you only wanted to... More

We loved our apartment. It was like being at home with all the amenities. Washing machine, dryer, iron, microwave etc. Couldn't fault it at all. We stayed there for 4 very happy weeks. I would recommend if staying any longer than a week to hire a car as there is so much to see and do

One couldn't ask for a better Review than being compared to home. Thank you for taking the time to write this and for sharing your great tip to people staying for a length of time - hire a car and see the many sites around Cairns Region. Kind regards Melissa - Manager More

Apartment at Sea Shells was perfect for our last two nights in the Cairns area. Had we known that the area and accommodation was that good we would have booked there longer instead of staying at other locations for the five day visit.

Thank you for your review. It is great knowing which apartment you stayed in as I can thank the owner for allowing us to present something which people love. I am not sure what was the issue with the internet whilst you are here as this is not usual. I will see if it is still a problem and have... More

This is my second visit to on the beach apartments, the last time being 10 years ago. I am sorry I left it so long, the apartments were as spotlessly clean as when I last visited. They are beautifully placed right on the front where you can sit and watch the beautiful coral sea. The apartments are well located and... More

Thank you for taking the time to Review our property. Unfortunately we did have a power failure after hours last week and the UPS which serves our computers failed. We were without computers for 2 days as a direct result which meant we didn't have a housing list (or anything else). We did knock on doors to offer torches and... More

This is a self catering aparthotel situated right on the beachfront at Trinity Beach, immediately opposite the safe sea bathing area. Trinity Beach is a relatively undeveloped resort on the tropical North Queensland coast. The rooms are laid out like studio flats with separate bedrooms. They are clean and attractive.
