Our family recently stayed a few nights and enjoyed the spacious fully self catering unit we had with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms plus washing machine and dryer. We were on the side next to the backpackers who were a bit noisy the first night, but Kevin sorted that out straight away and we didn't have any more problems. The pool area is nice although can be a bit shady and it would be nicer if the spa was a hot one, but hot spas don't seem to be common in Australia I've noticed. The BBQ area is very well equipped, even had oil for us to use.
I found in general that the lighting in our unit was very dim especially over the kitchen sink where there are no lights at all. But we found everything very nice and clean. The managers were very helpful, units well equipped and cars are parked in a secure car park. As others have said, it is a little walk into town but it's all flat and very easy passing by shops etc.
We had lunch at Fusion Organic Cafe just up the road and can definitely recommend it especially for people who have allergies such as dairy or gluten. Food delicious and not too expensive. The lagoon on the Cairns waterfront is also a fantastic facility.
