My room is beautiful. So quiet and peaceful. It is a one bedroom apartment, and I couldn't be happier in it. I would love to live here permanently. Access to the beach is only a two minute walk. Lovely restaurant right next door for breakfast and dinner - Echos. And the talking cockatoo is gorgeous! Highly recommend this place.

Quick update on my previous review. It got too much for me, the smell was overwhelming, so I made an executive decision, decided to hang the expense, I left! In other words, I have wasted money on two nights accommodation, they refused to refund for the second night when I didn't even stay one night. I am now at The... More

Pros: Our room was tidy and nicely furnished, clean bathroom and both balconies were neat. The pool and restaurant were lovely and we were only a short walk across sand form the beach. We had a five minute walk to busses that were always on time and effective in getting us to the city. Cons: The first thing we saw... More

Our second trip - first time was great but it's gone downhill. Wifi not available in our room (I had to buy an expensive data sim card in order to work), restaurant shut, other amenities advertised, such as bar/lounge/café/deli did not exist. Pool cleaned just once during our week's stay - I was not happy about using it. Some kitchen... More

This apartment building is a short stroll to the beach and in a quiet area, so it ticked those boxes for us. However, the apartment we were given was shabby. The window blind in one of the bedrooms had a big chunk cut away so there was a big square missing. The cane sofa in the lounge was bowed and... More

We stayed at yorkeys knob whilst visiting Cairns. We enjoyed our stay and found it to be a relaxing place to be, just outside of Cairns. The rooms were spacious and comfortable and we very much enjoyed the outdoor pool area which was beautiful. The beach was right there and was lovely to walk along

Had a great stay. Nice apartment and friendly service. The pool was really nice and the place was clean and tidy. We had a big green frog on the back wall outside keeping us company next to a private area where we had meals. Would recommend this place.
