Four of us shared a 2 bedroom apartment recently. It faced the ocean. Trouble is you can't see the ocean directly in front because of the trees, but you can if you look south towards the pier. Having said this there was totally nothing wrong with the views we had. We were on the 3rd floor and we overlooked the... More

Great position on the Esplanade, wonderful views across the sea. 30 minute walk into Cairns proper. We had a 3 bedroom apartment as there were 5 friends, plenty of space, great kitchen and bathrooms. Would recommend it.

Great spot, looking out over the bay from the 5th floor, and far enough away from the centre of Cairns that there was no "city" noise. The apartment was clean and spacious, with a nice balcony to relax, dine or watch the boats come and go in the distance. It was also nice to have a dedicated car park that... More

After a bad experience with a Yorkeys Knob resort, my friend and I found we needed last minute accommodation in the Cairns region for two nights, and chose these apartments. The staff were every helpful and friendly, the apartment was lovely and had a nice view. We were sorry we could not stay longer.

Hi Pdsan, Thank you for taking the time to review North Cove and we are so glad that you enjoyed your time here.

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

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...
