Koala Court Holiday Apartments

Reviewed August 3, 2008

We stayed here for four days on during our trip to Australia at the end of October 2007. The apartments themselves are nothing to go wild over, though the are clean and spacious, but the managers and owners are VERY helpful. All you have to go if you have a question is go down to the office and they can help you out with anything..they have lots of suggestions if you are not sure of the best place to eat, what to do, etc. The location is a little ways away from the esplanade, but if you have a car, it only takes about five minutes, plus the airport is about ten minutes away. We drove up to Port Douglas and Kuranda and it was an easy drive from there.
They have a saltwater pool, which is kind of small but nice, wasn't usually a lot of people using it, either.
For friends or families on a budget, I would recommend this place, but definitely get a car, which is pretty cheap to rent in Cairns.

We booked Koala Court apartments over the wotif site to stay for a couple of nights in cairns on our way to dunk island. The booking went through without a hitch (full credit to wotif for this to) I wanted to make sure that the 'comment' I had made on the booking regarding late arrival had been received by Koala Court so I contacted them directly via email after my booking had been confirmed.
They were so lovely to deal with and made arrangements for me to get our keys and instructions late at night upon arrival. They also made sure I had milk for my cup of tea when I got there. They had cooled the room and everything was tidy and roomy.
This is the first apartment we have stayed in and I highly recommend this to other families particularly those with young children. We had booked a standard 2 bdrm apartment which had storage galore, a roomy kitchen so we were'nt tripping over each other, and ample instructions on how to get to local food and shopping outlets.
It is about a 15 min flat walk to the local shopping centre. there were local bus services but we were quite happy with the little bit of exercise.
The owners were really friendly and helpful, so were the other guests staying there.
We will definately be going back to Cairns at some stage and will be staying at the Koala Court apartments for sure.
Just remember that it isn't a 5 star accommodation, and that as it is an apartment, it isn't serviced daily, nor are you supplied with shampoos etc. after the first day. ( I didn't realise )
Only complaint if any would be the noise of the planes going into the airport but this is no fault of Koala Court as apparently (after speaking to locals) the flight plan had recently been changed to almost directly over the main CBD. A\nywhere in the area will hear the planes. Do be honest, after the first day, we didn't hear them anymore, and they didn't fly at night from what I could tell.

It's worth for the price. A good apartment for budget travellers. With great thanks to the resident manager there. He is a really nice guy, gave us a lot of advices on tour and travelling information. He even gave us a free ride to the harbour on the day we went to the Great Barrier Reef.
