Have just visited the North Cove Apartments and spent a week in the ground floor one bedroom Apt. Well I have to say had a lovely time, apt was clean and tidy and had everything we needed for our stay. Loved the fact we were not slap bang in the middle of Cairns, the trip to the centre of town...

Hi Pdsan, Thank you for taking the time to review North Cove and we are so glad that you enjoyed your time here. Being that little bit further out of the center has its benefits and we certainly enjoy our location. While the weather was a bit out of the ordinary for this time of year, I'm glad we managed...

This 2 bedroom unit was just perfect for me and my family to connect with our 96 year old Italian mother. (we took her out of her NURSING HOME for rejuvenation and an eating, laughing and living experience. The view from the 5th floor was magical and the esplanade, gardens and pool panorama was picture perfect. This scenery was certainly... More

Hi Jenny, Thank you for taking the time to review and we are glad that you enjoyed your time in Cairns catching up with your mother. The ability to be able to cook for yourself while on holidays is certainly a feature that is becoming increasingly popular and we are glad that we could deliver this for you. Our 2... More

We booked this place 8 months ahead, and had requested a quiet unit and seaward facing and as high up as possible. On arrival we got the ground floor unit with foliage about 2 meters from our deck which blocked the view. The noise from the road which was only a couple of metres away, so no peace. And not...

Hi Sue, Considering our conversation during your stay, I understand that you were disappointed by the private courtyard. You booked a 1 bedroom kitchenette apartment, which is advertised to have a private courtyard and gardens (I'm sorry that you don't enjoy tropical gardens while in Cairns) - images online on all of the websites are of this exact apartment as...

North Cove is a wonderful place to stay. The location is only minutes away from the heart of the city. The units have everything you need and are well maintained. The staff are lovely and always happy to help with anything from tours, restaurants and the accommodation itself. The price is very affordable and great value. Would highly recommend staying...

We stay there for 4 days and enjoyed. Location is very good, just in front of Lake. Customer Service was good, Get good tips from trip advisers at the reception. Also get discounted coupon and arrangement for the cruise to Great Barrier Reef.

Our 3 room suite was perfect for us all. Great views, very comfortable for our 10 day stay. Would definitely stay again on our next trip to Cairns. Exactly 3 kilometre run along the Esplanade to the Marina and 3 beautiful klm back. Planes taking off made it noisy at 6am but as we are early risers it did not... More

Had a great week in Cairns. Accommodation was excellent although at the top end of The Esplanade, taking approximately 25 minutes to walk to restaurants and shops. Office staff were really helpful and I was able to book all tours from there.

The waterfront here is very attractive but of course you can't swim there, because of crocodiles! There is nice walk along the foreshore into the city complemented by exercise equipment and picnic facilities along the way. The North Cove has a nice pool you can swim in though, and a garden and BBQ to enjoy outdoors. Our apartment had lovely... More

North Cove Waterfront Suite is less than a 30 minute walk alongside the Esplanade located away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre overlooking the ocean. The paved walkway, the cool breeze, the beautiful landscape gardens and the tall mango trees provide plenty of shade for walking. After a hectic journey by car driving all the way from... More

Stayed for 10 nights with the family. The room was comfortable enough. Features were good. Cleaning was adequate and facilities decent. The reception staff were fantastic. Very helpful. Assigned parking was useful as well. Negatives for us: 1. Second bedroom was a bit small for two beds and our two teen boys were a bit close. 2. Smokers on balconies... More
