We stayed here for 7 nights in late June/early July this year. Clifton Beach is a fantastic location when you are staying in Cairns, but want to be away from 'the City' (though it is easily reached by the many buses which pass along the Esplanade, or by car). Karen and Angelo were so very welcoming when we arrived, super lovely with our two children and very helpful. (The children were delighted with being able to borrow boogie boards that previous guests had left behind!)
The location is quiet, but not far from any amenities that you want or need. The quick jump across the very quiet Esplanade to the beach is perfect for those travelling with young children. The beaches on either side of Clifton Beach (Kewarra and Palm) are just a stroll along the sand. Clifton Beach is an excellent location for heading up to Port Douglas and the Mossman Gorge. Also nearby is the Cairns Tropical Zoo which (in our opinion) is a far better day out than Australia Zoo (which is only 20 minutes drive from where WE live!) as it's the perfect size for small children to see everything without tiring.
Our apartment (12) was modern, clean and VERY spacious, with a wraparound balcony at the front, and a balcony at the back (great for looking at the wallabies who come throughout the day!)
Everything about Argosy was perfect for our holiday and we would (and do!) highly recommend it to anyone planning a visit to Cairns.
