Long term rental while working in Cairns. Extremely limited phone or 4G service. Challenging to sleep during day with holiday makers in the pool having a riot! Unable to access car space. No help from resort managers at all. No attempt to contact us. Couldn't swim for all the sand flies. Don't waste your time cleaning the apartment, they will... More

Lovely spacious two bedroom self catered holiday apartment. Really pleasant and helpful staff. Pleasant environment. Right next to centenary lakes and botanical gardens which are great for walking/jogging. Great location, close to both town and airport.

i visited this resort recently (august) with my husband and 2 children. We booked a 2 bedroom apt just for 2 nights as we were moving on to Townsville. From the front of Resort and reception area it gave the impression of a friendly family run B&B, but its actually a very large well kept electric gated great place to... More

Nice apartment, glad we hired a car though as it wasn't as central as I thought. Our apartment was on the third floor and there's no lift, so that was a drag, and we didn't have a pool view which I assumed was a given based on the website. A few of the pools and surrounding areas where under repair,... More

A good place to stay for its proximity to the Botanic Gardens with its excellent Wild Bean cafe. Very well kept Resort Gardens and Pools with BBQ facilities provide a restful enjoyable environment. Like most of Cairns it is under the flight path of the nearby Airport but I only hear flights a few times a day. It can have... More

We had an enjoyable ten days here, having rented a car after coming up on the Spirit of Queensland. We arrived on a Sunday after 2:pm and found the reception unattended. However, there was an intercom and we found our keys in the lock box. They should probably tell people about it before hand, because there were others just as... More

Apartment was spacious, but in need of a modern refurbishment, and a thorough clean. Outdoor pool and BBQ in similar state. Some on site amenities closed (bar & gym) with reception closing after 6. Wifi limited to reception area. Comfortable for a weeks stay - AC, all kitchen and bathroom facilities in check, and a convenient location with car.

Fully equipped with everything we needed to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable . A very central location and an easy drive to everywhere we wanted to explore. The pools and grounds were beautifully maintained .... More
