Booked Getaway on Grafton after researching on TripAdvisor and reading previous reviews. Absolutely loved it! From the initial booking to getting in the cab to go home (*sad face*) i couldnt fault this accomodation! Kevin, Linda and Dot were all so helpful. The apartment was spacious, clean and equipped with everything to make our stay comfortable. The pool was wonderful to swim in and we were only a 5-10minute walk from the main streets of Cairns. Dont be fooled by the location (near the backpackers), they do not cause any disruptions!
Definitley due to return same time next year! :-)

wonderful apartments with fantastic facilities, ideal for families,couples or a group of friends. We spent 13 great nights here and there was never an issue about the backpackers next door in fact we found them lovely people to talk to (and we are not a young couple). You will find it is an easy walk to the esplanade and a short stroll into the town. Getaway is safe and secure and we know where we will stay next time in cairns.

Room Tip: Choose a lower floor if you have difficulty with a lot of stairs.

With all the good reviews we read about this apartment, we stayed for 4 nights recently in Getaway on Grafton. The owners are said to be on holidays, but the on duty personnel has been very friendly and considerate. My daughter loved the pool and her spacious room where she can play with her favorite toys....
It's true that this part of Grafton street is little bit far from the city center, but Cairns is a so small city that you're never far from anywhere. And the Muddy playground is just 2 blocks aways on the esplanade, where we always go after our days of tours. To give you more concrete example of the distance, to walk from our apartment to Central shopping mall is just about 15 minutes.
Kitchenware and the whole apartment have been well maintained. It's quite a cool season when we visited Cairns, so we didn't use air conditioner. One concern of the window air conditioners in bedrooms: it could be noisy I suppose compared to separate ones.
The youth hostel next to getaway is not a problem though. We heard sometimes laughs and singing in the evenings, but stopped always before we went to bed.
In general we enjoyed very much our stay at Getaway on Grafton, and we could recommend this to all friends visiting Cairns.

Room Tip: We stayed in a townhouse, good for kids.

Great apartment spacious layout the kids had there own bathroom. Pool, BBQ and garden was well maintained. Our balcony over looked the pool. Kevin and Linda were really helpful booking activities and cars. Great price close to the esplanade with shopping, restaurants and Marina for excursions to the reef. We travelled as far south as Mission beach and all the way up to Cape Tribulation. Kitchen and laundry facilities were great and wifi available. Loved it!

Room Tip: Ours was perfect with teenagers 2nd floor over looking pool. Younger families or family with Grandparents should choose lower ground to avoid stairs.

Ideally placed with very roomy bedrooms and facilities. Handy to all shops and within walking distance of most things. would definately stay there again on our next Cairns trip. Secure parking and access only to holders of the security code, nice touch. I agree with the comment about the location of the bacpackers down the road, however, we were not disturbed by them and did not have any issues other than it was dirty.
