“Waters Edge Cairns Queensland”
Reviewed May 18, 2012

We stayed 6 days at the Waters Edge Apartments in Cairns.
What a wonderful place to stay if you like serviced apartments.
We had a 3 bedroom swimout apartment, straight out to the pool from our apartment.
Fantastic location just a short stroll north of the hussle and bussle of the main restaurant strip. we overlooked the bay.
The hosts were the most helpful people. They just made you feel welcome and want to come back to stay whith them.

Then it's Cairns. A must visit location. Gop via helecopter to the outer reef and return via Catamaran

Room Tip: You have to get a swim out apartment

Spacious apartment, well appointed. Good views, near a children's park. View of harbour. Nice balcony. Handy to restaurants and some shops. Two swimming pools - well cared for. 20 minute walk to central swimming lagoon. If we go back to Cairns I'd want to stay there again.

The Waters Edge Apartments are fantastic, close to shops and eateries. The apartments are well present, spacious and excellent for a family holiday. We have already booked our next stay.

Room Tip: Swim out apartments provide direct acess to the pool

We had a 2 bedroom apartment on level 2 for 3 adults and couldn't have been happier. What impressed us was the layout, the comfort, the ammenities and the space. I also loved the pools We were not far from the hub of Cairns but not in the thick of it either.We looked over the Esplanade though for better views of the bay you might need to go up a level or get an apartment to either side of ours which was right in the centre.
Craig on reception when we arrived was friendly and helpful and continued to be so throughout our stay, much appreciated.
On my next trip to Cairns I would most definitely stay here again. I see it as being particularly good for family groups, there were many staying there.For young families across the road on the foreshore is a fantastic playground.

A few minutes walk from the main area and grocery but that much away too from the noises and trafic. Since we were to arrive late, I had written a few hours before arrival to request coffee milk and sugar for at least our morning coffee and of course, offer to pay. They quickly answered that our first morning coffee would be available, at no charge. We really appreciated it. The appartment was great, large, impeccably clean, a very large balcony, well equiped, with a nice pool and a view on the ocean. Really nothing to say against it. If you arrive by car, an inside parking is available. Contrary to a lot of other rentals of the area, the clientele is mature adults , with or without kids. We did not see groups of young adults in any of the Waters Edge Apartments. There is no " fan" , so avoid grilled food. As for the rest, we really enjoy our stay and Cairns is a nice small place to drop by for a day or two. We visited the Draintree forest from there, we booked a tour for it. If it was to be done again, we would rent a car for a day and do it on our own.

Room Tip: Close your windows if you don't want to be awakened by the birds..tons of them right in front of...

Stayed in a 3 bedroom 'swimout' apartment for a week, really spacious for the 5 of us, clean well maintained excellent facilities. Short walk along the Esplanade to loads of eating places or into the main shopping area. Would highly recommend and would definitely stay again.

We stayed at Waters Edge for 10 days over the new year. The rooms were clean, spacious and the view was excellent. We stayed in unit 28 on the fifth floor, it was roomey and although there was six of us, we had plenty of space and although the weather outside got hot at times, the appartment was always airy and cool, verandah had an excellent view

Room Tip: Just book room 28, you won't be dissapointed
