A wonderful place to stay. Very clean and modern apartments. Excellent location. Why stay at Palm Cove when this treasure is at the other end of the beach! Just brilliant and loved the wildlife in the back yard. Will be back!

The 2 of us stayed for 8 nights. Clifton beach is great location for quieter holiday, not as touristy as Palm Cove. Argosy was a great place to stay, a little older but modernised. Fully equiped self contained apartments right across from the beach. Everything you could need. Angelo and Karen very friendly, helpful and full of knowledge. Will definitely... More

It's been nine years since our wonderful stay here, and this time we bought back two school aged children. All I can say is PERFECT! Angelo and Karen are fantastic hosts who also helped us book all our excursions, and nothing was a problem. We were in a downstairs two bedroom apartment, fully self contained and everything we could ever... More

We didn't realise when we booked that the Argosy apartments were about 25min to the north of Cairns along the northern beaches. So it was a great surprise to find we had a great view of the beach from our apartment. Karen and Angelo were fantastic to deal with and super helpful with advice and making bookings for local attractions.... More

A big thank you to Karen for such a warm welcome. She was a real wealth of knowledge when it came to organising trips to the local and surrounding areas. The apartment was very spacious and featured air conditioning and ceiling fans. There is also a huge balcony with outdoor furniture which was perfect for alfresco dining. This location is... More

We stayed in Unit 16 - top floor. It is a very specious and lovely unit with wrap around balcony. Lift to door so no stairs to navigate. Managers are very helpful. The front view offers beach and ocean views whilst the back balcony (from the bedroom) faces a rainforest. At times there were wallabies grazing out the back. So... More

Thank you for your positive comments and feed back. We will follow up the internet availability as this should be available any time of the day. Our local wallabies are sure a delight. So good to see the wild lift so close to the apartments. Kind regards, Pam (on behalf of Karen) More

Our third visit to Argosy. We are retired and not looking for a busy resort. Away from the crowds, but close enough to all facilities, cafes restaurants, shops etc. if needed. Across the road from the beach the apartments are well appointed, and well run by Karen & Angelo.

We had a short holiday in Cairns and stayed at Argosy for 4 nights. The apartment was beautiful, well furnished and in prime position right across from Clifton Beach.

Close to Palm Cove but not in Palm Cove. That's what makes this place so great. A quiet beach, a great pool with well kept facilities. Very clean. Managers on site who can help you with any issues and a tour desk. The best!
