We stayed in their The Blue Marlin property which is a small complex of 6 units, two doors down from On The Beach and reception. We were not overly impressed with the first apartment we were offered as it was quite dated with well worn appliances and not particularly clean (the glass surfaces and kitchen benchtops were sticky, glass marks...

Thank you for your Review and your honest feedback. We are glad you love the location. Trinity Beach is beautiful. We are just sorry your stay with us didn't make as good an impression.

Stayed for 5 nights, great location, well appointed, good amenities, the photos of the apartment though don't match up to the reality and must be of a newly renovated and modernized . Our Apartment, although perfect, was furnished 10+ years ago. Service from management team is great.

Thank you for your feedback. We are really pleased you enjoyed your stay. Each of our apartments are individually owned and all 2 and 3 Bedroom ones are furnished to the owner's specifications.

My family stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment facing the beach. Rooms were quiet,clean, spacious with great views and roomy balcony. Having a patrolled beach just over the road was a bonus, and places to eat were lovely. My only problem was we didn't stay there long enough! Much better location and value than Port Douglas. Close to everything with... More

Very disappointed when we arrived. Found it hard to find our room because it was not in their building. They had put us up in a room in the building a few doors down the road that they managed.

We booked a 3 bedroom self catering apartment for 5 adults using an Expedia hotel and flight combined package. We thought it was very reasonably priced. The bed configuration was flexible. The apartment was huge and very clean. There was a secure under cover garage. It was only metres from the life guard patrolled section of the beach. Trinity beach... More

Thank you for taking the time to review On The Beach. Voted 'Cairns Best Beach' by the locals, we think Trinity Beach is the nicest of all Cairns Beaches - as you mention, close to everything. We appreciate your recommendation and hope you bring your family/friends back again in the future. Kind regards, Melissa - Manager. More

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment at On the Beach Apartments and it was great. Great big sliding doors in every room and a balcony big enough for breakfast for 5.

We have been travelling to Trinity Beach for many years now and wouldn't stay anywhere else than "On the Beach". The service is professional and friendly. The apartments look over the most beautiful beach & hotel, cafe's & restaurant's are within walking distance. Who could ask for more?

I am pleased to hear we were able to meet your requests and expectations. Not many people comment on the outdoor spa (hot tub) being cold, but as you mention the ocean temperature is a mild 24 degrees in winter, so great to take advantage of that all year round (up to 28-30 in the Summer months).
