So glad we found this place! Was trying to find a reasonably-priced place to spend two nights in the Cairns area and came across this here on Trip Advisor. I am from Minnesota. I had never been to the tropics before. What a great introduction! This place is so cute. We arrived later in the evening but the proprietor, Kerryn, saw us and came to welcome. She even helped us reschedule our snorkel trip to a different day for nicer weather. It truly was like an apartment. We parked right in front of our unit. There is a little living room, kitchen and bedroom and bathroom. All is clean. White and shiny comes to mind. We used the laundry facilities which were average. The kitchen had everything we needed to make ourselves nice breakfasts. Again, coming from Minnesota, it is strange not to have carpet and sleep with the windows open, but it was great, waking up to the sounds of exotic birds. There are a few units, and some were occupied, but we felt like we were the only ones there. Just down and across the street is beach access. We walked to the Palm Cove area which has nice shops and cafes. And there is a little mall just a few blocks from the apartments along the highway. It felt like home away from home, like staying with a favorite aunt. I highly recommend this quaint, relaxing place during your stay in Cairns.

I was delighted to read that you enjoyed your stay
and were able to share 'our piece of paradise"!
The Northern Beaches of Cairns are such a great location to access all
the tours available in Cairns and Far North and yet our property allows our guests a little peace and quiet also.
I very much hope to be able to welcome you back to Clifton Palms at some point in time.

Stayed here for 5 nights in April 2012. Very clean, quiet and comfortable. Excellent base for day trips to Karunda, Port Douglas, Daintree and the tablelands. Extensive tour and attractions information and advice provided by the owner.

We stayed here for 7 nights for our honney month, and we rejoiced our choice -- Clifton Palms. Good location, so nere the beach, market and the bus stop. Reasonable price for us also.
Kerryn was so nice to gave us most of suggestions to arrange our diving and Kurranda trip. We missed our plane the day when we flied to Cairns and delayed arrival, so she ready the room for us and left the key on the table with a gift in the refrigerator, is's so warm! When we asked about the direction to the zoo nearby, she was so kindly drived us there. Thank you so much Kerryn to gave us a wonderful and unforgetful memories in Cairns. If we are back to Carins one day, we will back to Clifton Palms!
Only one thing, the air-condition was too noisy ^_^

My mother and I stayed at Clifton Palms for 5 nights and we had a wonderful time. We only requested a 1 bedroom condo but the owner upgraded us to a 2 bedroom for virtually nothing (only a small laundry fee each night). The apartment was comfortable, clean and well stocked. Air conditioner that worked great and fans in the bedrooms for hot nights. The entire complex was always peaceful and quiet and the owner was friendly incredibly helpful with any activities we were trying to plan. The best thing about this accommodation is that it is literally across the road from one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen. There were hardly anyone on the beach at the same time as us, and if they were, they were locals because it is located in a residential area. My mother and I both had an amazing time and would definitely stay here again.

This place is so clean- it's cleaner than my house! It is well maintained and beautiful. Hosts are friendly and helpful. Kitchen is well stocked. It's a great choice if you want to self cater and it's good deal for the money. Onsite laundry and pool. Grocery store very close. Kangaroos right on the other side of the fence. The time we were there was rainy, but it was OK because it was such a nice indoor space. Close walk to Clifton Beach.
