We were able to check in early and the room was nice and clean. The staff were excellent, as are the facilities. My only criticism is they knew we were arriving and yet the fridge was turned off. Would've appreciated it on with a jug of cold water in there, particularly given the climate.

Great place to stay with families bigger than 3 people. We had a bit of trouble finding it at first, but using GPS made finding the location a breeze. Not too far off from everything! The pool was lovely, even tho it is rather small, and we were quite happy with our 3 night long stay 🌴

The manager Greame is friendly and helpful and quick to resolve any issues. Appartments are a bit old but still great for the price. Location is great being close to a large shopping centre. Book your reef/sky rail and other tours here for a discount. You get voucher and then pay at the attraction. We had the unit with the... More

I went on a month's vacation in Australia last December, and this was the most disappointing of all the places we stayed. On the good side, the manager was very helpful, nice and friendly, the place was quiet, and the apartment was spacious. There were also a small pool with really hot water, and separate, under-roof parking. But the location... More

We arrived later in the day by car and the property manager Graham got us checked in really fast. He was a world of knowledge and provided us with many things for us to do in the area. Cairns is quite large and as much of Australia closes at 5pm so does the area here. The apartment was nice and... More

The apartment was spacious and clean. The "For Sale" sign is a little off putting when arriving but the manager to be fair was courteous and helpful especially as we arrived in the evening with no food. Not only did he take us to a local fuel station to buy simple food, the next day he took us to the... More

Stayed for 2 nights with our two kids. Very spacious rooms overlooking the pool with a large living area. The manager was very helpful and accommodating. Maybe a 5 - 10 minute drive into the CBD. Would definitely stay here again.

I am traveling with a friend and we were impressed with the size of the unit, very spacious, clean and a well stocked kitchen. The furnishings were a bit outdated which didn't bother us a bit. The beds were very comfortable. The manager there went out of his way to help us organise tours with a good discount in fact... More

Stayed four nights with two adults and four children. Well equiped with kitchen, washer and dryer, this accommodation is truly self contained. Pool and BBQ facilities also great for holiday cooking with the kiddies. Great home base, central to all Cairns has to offer (DFO just around the corner) whilst being far enough off the main road to be nice... More
