me and my wife stayed here for 5 nights. The apartment was basic looking at first glance but it's actually very homely and very clean. It has all the necessary amenites to get by (microwave, washer, dryer etc). we paid under $100aud per night which was outstanding value for money considering most motels charge around 120 so you won't find better for the price.
it was under new ownership when we arrived and they were very accomodating.
there's a small saltwater pool at the front of the apartments which is quite nice and plenty of sunchairs.
The golf club is practically next door also.
the area itself (yorkeys knob) is very quiet so a car is a necessity.
there's a couple of takeaways and restaurants in the area along with a shop, off licence and a car rental place.
we travelled into cairns city by bus on our first few days and this took around 35mins or 15 by car.
if it's a quiet break you're looking for then it doesn't get any quieter than this little resort.
if you want to go drinking then it's not the spot to be in and taxis from cairns to this resort will cost around 40 australian dollars.
its also very close to some of the local attractions such as kuranda skyrail, hartleys crocodile adventure and the night zoo.
there is a little aircraft noise around 5am but it doesnt last long and it never woke me up although it woke my wife up a couple of nights. Its not constant though.
overall id recommend it highly for those on a budget or those who want a nice peaceful break in a quiet location. we are in our mid thirties.
