As everyone else mentions its the service from the front desk and position which is the stand out from these apartments, very helpful from booking, advising which room and helpful when you are there and happy to have a chat. Position is great with a short easy walk to everything especially the marina for day trips and a quiet location with great natural views.
The 2 bed are really well laid out with the bed rooms+ensuite either side of the living area for privacy, the balcony is also very private so no need to hear or see the apartment next door. Furnishings are good standard, some stains on the carpets but expected otherwise great condition.
Only bad marks are the really tiny ants which were always on the dining table and kitchen bench (unexpected on 11th floor), we used the supplied bug spray but they kept coming back. Also had some mixups with a booked tour from the front desk: 10% discount was actually 5%, we noticed this immediately but didn't argue as it was still a discount and the return times didn't match what the operator wanted (2pm & 3pm return was actually 3:45pm only), can put this down to casual nature of the tour operator.
Haven't stayed anywhere else in Cairns but I doubt we would find better, be happy to stay there again.
