Fantastic! we booked our holiday not knowing what to expect! Awesome accommodation, great location directly across from a very beautiful beach. The management and staff could not do enough to look after us! We had a great package including a car that made getting around easy as! and I would re book this place again! we absolutely had a great time and loved it!
The palm trees on the beach from my apartment are now on my phone as my home page!! That says a lot!!

Thanks Richard for your review, and we are so pleased that you had a great holiday at Sea Change & loved the Roof Deck apartment. They are very popular with all of our guests. They are so unique to the Cairns region. Only at Sea Change can you get an apartment with its own private deck area (120 sqm), that contains four sun lounges, two outdoor settings, a covered area, your own bbq, and lots of tropical pot plants. We are so priviliged to have SIX of these apartments at Sea Change, I am also glad that you thought having the FREE car whilst you stayed with us is GREAT. We look forward to welcoming you back to Sea Change again. Regards, Simon.

What a glorious 3 nights we had! As locals, we like to take advantage of the off season deals and after 4 years of staying in various resorts/apartments, Sea change by far is our pick of the bunch. Stunning location, stunning apartments. The most surprising part of our stay was how well fitted out the kitchen was...juicer, espresso machine, all great quality and made meal preparation a breeze. The en suite spa was glorious, the view from our bedroom, lounge room and courtyard were glorious....I can not wait to take our next mini break at Sea change.

Room Tip: We were ground level 105 with our own courtyard and gorgeous views over the Coral sea.

What a wonderful place to stay. Convenient to all of Cairn but just far enough away from the crowds of Cairn. A car is important but with it the drive is short and easily maneuvered. Small stores and restaurants nearby along with a wonderful beach. The staff was most helpful in assisting us with our plans and needs. I would definitely recommend this property. The unit we had was spacious and well equipped.

Just returned from our second visit to this wonderful jewel of a property and stayed another week. It takes a lot for us to return to the same place but not to this place, its like a second home. We booked the two bedroom apartment with the roof deck which is more like a villa with the grandest views. It is directly over the beach and the serene Bali style pool. Sitting out having a cool wine and a BBQ or lying and reading on the comfy sun beds was truly blissful, the lapping of the waves just music in our ears. At dusk we watched the spectacular migration of thousands of fruit bats flying over the ocean going out on their nightly raid and in the morning at 5am (not wanting to miss a minute) the same bats returning along with the amazing sunrise. Lying out on the deck at night and counting shooting stars everything feels so close like you have front row seats at the opera. We tried the local cuisine (just walk along the palm fringed esplanade) at the Bangkok Rose Thai and it is about as good as it gets, super fresh with high quality chef treats (including hand crafted purple coconut icecream!) There is a ample choice in restaurants including a modern Tavern with a wonderfully stocked bottle shop. The atmosphere is tranquility in motion. The swimming pool has shade and a spa and there are lifesavers watching over you in the stinger nets for a beach swim. Trinity Beach is centrally located (a stones throw north from Cairns) to the Daintree World Heritage, Mossman Gorge (a wonderful swim in the river), Cairns, Port Douglas, Palm Cove and of course the Great Barrier Reef. We always take a trip out onto the Reef for a day of snorkeling. The kids love it and Its addictive; they took 3000 underwater photos!. We saw a giant pacific manta ray, a white tip reef shark and a sea turtle at Hasting Reef amongst other highlights, just magnificent. The accommodation is superb with a fully stocked kitchen including many small appliances and a spa bath. The staff are friendly and helpful with bookings and there are DVDs for hire. This place has that special balance between tranquility and excitement, and we feel fully recharged after our visit!

Room Tip: Roof deck apartments offer ample space with BBQ facilities, sun beds, and dining options.

Dear Sonya, your review was just amazing. A HUGE thank you for your kind words. You should write a book !! One comment you wrote has stuck with me since I read your review. You stated that "The atmosphere is tranquility in motion." I think that is a great way of describing Sea Change. This is because all the apartments are sumptously appointed and magically complimented by the stunning views of the Coral Sea from your private balcony or roof deck. An aura of mystique is then created with thatched roofs and Balinese water features together with vast Mediterranean style roof decks, resort pool and spa. Look forward to seeing you again next time. Regards, Simon.

Great location! Spacious apartment, very clean and fantastic views!!! Secure parking too...couldn't ask for more...Will be back for sure!!!
It was so hassle free checking in...everything was ready and the rooms were very clean and we were given an apartment right at the top!!! wow!!!
We loved staying here...every morning we would wake up to the sounds of the ocean and the ocean breeze blowing in...it was so relaxing...then we would go next door to Fratelli's for a latte, we recommend it!
All in all, it was a very very pleasant holiday and staying here just help topped it off...Fantastic place to stay!
