Therese and Walter made us feel as though we were staying with caring relatives who were ready to do anything they could to make our holiday a most pleasant and memorable experience.
Our apartment was spotless, the gardens and surrounds were immaculately presented and the convenience of being able to have our tours booked for us as, well as being given helpful suggestions, all contributed to a stress free and relaxing holiday.
Throughout our stay, Therese and Walter were the perfect hosts.

My favourite place to stay in Cairns. I been to Cairns several times for a winter escape and have usually stayed at CitySider. I was there with the family for two weeks in August 2012 and was again well looked after by Therese and Walter. The amenities were all in good oder and clean and Therese was always happy to accomodate some our increased requirements due to having small children (extra sheet changes etc).
We'll be back! The location is great, pleasantly quite and only a short walk to the esplanade. It's our choice for a winter getaway. Therese and Walter are very kind and work very hard to ensure their guests have whatever holiday they are looking for.
PS - Just love Ellis Beach - a piece of heaven, even if the cafe has been yuppified.

Room Tip: The train goes past on the East side of the complex. Train times are 8.30 am and 9.30 am and returns 3.30 pm and 4.30 pm - its not so early as to disturb, so you can choose if you want to be able to see it or not. We always stay in a room facing the North so get all the afternoon sun - its bright and lovely and not too hot in August.

We stayed here for 5-6 days and were welcomed after hours by Therese who checked us in and gave us a bottle of champagne. Our 2 bedroom apartment was upstairs - normally not a problem, but I had a knee injury so it was great exercise for hubby and kids carrying their own stuff and then mine up the stairs! Walter arranged various tours and offered his expert advice on which ones to choose. We were very glad to have listened to him - we had a one of a kind eco tour into the rain forest with only 1 other family (Wilderness Eco Safaris), a snorkeling/diving tour for the family (Reef Magic Cruises) where our eldest was able to fit in 3 dives while we did an outer reef snorkeling tour and various other activities. This and a visit to Paronella park which we were not sure about were arranged - with significant discounts - by Walter. All were absolutely amazing - and were some of the highlights of our Australian trip this summer (their winter). Although the rooms were "dated" as some comments suggest, the furniture was still in good shape, comfortable and especially - CLEAN. Walter and Therese provided some of the best customer service we have seen in many years and throughout our 6 week trip to Australia - Way to go!
We did not use the fitness centre or room service, hence cannot rate them.

Room Tip: I had a knee injury and it never occured to me to let Therese know. Hence, going up and down the stairs was sometimes difficult after long days of walking, however, it was probably good for it as stairs were part of my physiothereapy! Ask for the type of room you want!

We stayed for 9 nights and had a thoroughly enjoyable time. Our unit was one of the rear ones which overlooked the park. The Kuranda tourist train goes past at 8.30 am and 9.30 am and returns 3.30 pm and 4.30 pm. For us this was a positive feature as we enjoy heritage trains, The apartment was clean, and well serviced. Therese and Walter were excellent and couldn't have been more helpful. They always had time to share information and local knowledge without any pressure. The location was close to town, but still quiet, within walking distance to the shops and on a bus route. We would have no hesitation in staying there again and would strongly recommend it to family and friends.
