“A good choice!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2012

We have just returned from an 8 night stay at On the Beach. We booked it through Booking.com as it seemed to be the only available accommodation in the whole of the northern beaches! However - what a lucky choice! Trinity Beach was by far the nicest of the northern beaches. Just enough eating places for variety, not too busy, very handy for everything (we did hire a car) and a lovely feeling of being a local, not a tourist. Melissa and Kevin were very friendly and helpful hosts. We had a 2 bed apartment in the Blue Marlin complex which was comfortable and cosy. The beach was 5 steps across the quiet road. We could hear the surf day and night. Local shop in the village supplied us with basic essentials for the first day. Another larger store is a 10 minute walk away and Coles & Woolworths are just a 10 minute drive. Our favourite eating place was the amazing Blue Moon Grill, which served fabulous food and had very friendly service. The owner even wrapped you in a blanket when the evening was chilly! On the Beach is recommended for families. Enjoy a great holiday!

Room Tip: We chose a 2 bed beachfront room which had a great view. It was on the top floor so there were lots...

We traveled here for 2 weeks in the middle of June and the weather was fantastic. The staff at on the beach are great,friendly and helpful. The apartments are spacious with good views of the ocean. Would go back and want to go back. Resturants are little pricey but the price reflects the food as it was great. Our favorite place to eat was the Blue Moon Grill which is just a 5min beautiful walk away. Renting a car is easy as not only can the reception help you out there's also a place right around the corner. If you don't wish to rent a car the bus is also easily accessible and very reasonably priced to get into Cairns. Thanks again to the wonderful staff would definately recommend to anyone!

Very helpful staff, clean and comfortable room facing the ocean. Kitchen in the room and a grill near the pool area allow for a range of opportunities to cook your own meal. The beach is right across the street. Well worth the money!

My partner and I recently stayed at these apartments whilst holidaying in Cairns from Perth, WA. We had never been to Cairns before and didn't really know what to expect. The apartment we had was a 1 bedroom, overlooking the pool and the beach swimming area where the nets are. The staff were extremely helpful, they even booked our tours and advised us on things to do. Trinity Beach is a beautiful quiet beach with plenty of restaurants along the beachfront. We enjoyed the stunning views from the look out and the weather was perfect (not too hot). Trinity Beach was a great base for us to do the activities we chose. It's very close to the Kuranda skyrail and it's a beautiful drive to Port Douglas from here. We were very happy with our stay and would have to say it exceeded our expectations. Thanks to 'On the Beach'

Me and my parents stayed at these apartments for three nights in may, we didn't arrive in cairns until 11.40pm and got a taxi to trinity beach. On the way we were all thinking how far out of cairns we were but once we got to the apartments we were very satisfied. We stayed in a large 2 bedroom apartment. It was clean, well set out and in a great location right on the beach. After going into cairns the next day we were actually relieved at where we were staying, it has a much nicer, relaxing atmosphere than the centre of cairns and the staff on reception were so friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay here again.

Thank you for sharing your feedback with us and others.
Many people are concerned on their way from the airport to Trinity Beach and I guess a part of that is the fact that the airport is 3-5km in from the Highway, adding to the length of time it takes to get to our property. With Trinity Beach only 15-20 minutes from central Cairns it is a perfect place to relax and unwind - as you found out.
We are thrilled you enjoyed your stay and would love to stay again. We would love to have you return. Our return guest rate is 55% of our occupancy, so you are not alone.
Thank you again for taking the time to write this review. See you soon :) Melissa and the team at On The Beach.

Thank you for your feedback. I hope not everyone expects being upgraded to the Penthouse when we make an error, however everyone can expect great service and know that we will attend to any problem as it arises :)
We are glad you had a great stay and we hope to see you again one day.
