Half moon bay resort is in Yorkys knob , best described as a outer suburb of Cairns I would suggest best to have a car with the airport 10 minutes drive away and the CBD 15, the resort is not the newest or the swankiest by far but it's clean well set out and quiet the kitchen is small but... More

The descriptions online of this place are misleading. This is not at all a resort. There is a golf course across the street, but they are not connected. The rooms are tiny, and the furniture is uncomfortable. If you use more than your allotted 2 rolls of toilet paper in a week, you have to buy more. The air conditioning... More

This is a great little place and we were very comfortable in this northern beaches accommodation. The term "resort" to my mind doesn't quite fit - and we were glad about that. It was very comfortable, self contained accommodation, much like a motel with a pool. It was great to have our own washing machine and dryer and they even... More

Visited last year while visiting friends and relatives. Great location, across the road from the Golf Course, the Boat Club is also within walking distance, however they also offer a courtesy bus. Accommodation itself was spotless and included everything you would expect. Very friendly manager. Highly recommended.

We were limited in our choices for an exchange for our RCI vacation points, and this seemed like a good location for exploring the Cairns area for a week, and it worked for that. The room was comfortable and clean, and having laundry facilities in the room was very convenient. It turned out not to be much of a "resort",... More

It was clean n compact and modernly decorated.The location was quiet and peaceful but still close enough to nearby attractions. The manager was genuinely friendly and very helpful. We would definately recommend this property for any length... More

Spent 7 days here & Ellen was a saviour. Nothing was too much trouble for her & she had a great knowledge of the area. All her suggestions were excellent. The apartment was spotless, had everything we needed including a washer drier. As we had been travelling in Oz for a few weeks we had built up a fair bit... More

We went 18 days in Australia. We went to Sydney, we camped in Alice Spring and Darwin and finished in Cairns in Half Moon Bay resort. We were so well welcomed by Helen, our room was perfect, we had a small kitchen, but so clean with everything we needed. What I really liked was the service and the cleanliness. What... More
