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. Apartment was very clean, everything provided and more, we felt totally at home as soon as we... 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. We had been allocated top (second) floor rooms but as... More

These apartments were the perfect fit for our family and the vacation we had planned. Our apartment was ocean view, 2 bedrooms. Rooms were a generous size and the kitchen was well outfitted.

We stayed in a one bedroom apartment, on the third level, for a month. The apartment was very clean and had everything we needed to live here comfortably. Plenty of pots, pans, crockery and cutlery.
