We stayed a week and were supplied with a free bottle of bubbly on arrival. The apartment was very clean and supplied with everything we needed. The pool was nearby and parking was available. Walter and Therese obviously take pride in looking after things and were very helpful with arranging a tour and our kids loved telling with them about things they saw around Cairns.

Traveling with a family of 5, we needed somewhere spacious and cost effective. Citysider is that! The grounds and pool are gorgeous, the apartment was spacious and immaculate and NEVER have I met more gracious and welcoming hosts!
The kids loved the Kuranda Scenic Rail train pass by us in the afternoons, and the Citysider is no more than 2 minutes drive from anywhere in central Cairns.
We loved it there and on our next trip we definitely will be staying at Citysider!

We stayed 3 nights at the apartments, and were impressed by the size of the apartment and the facilities provided. The hosts made us welcome, and were very helpful. The rooms were clean, and comfortable, with all modern appliances. Having a washing machine and dryer in the bathroom was much appreciated. The bbq area was also great, clean bbqs, and convenient for those who want to prepare their own meals. The pool area was good, with shade sails over some of the pool. The grounds were immaculate and well presented. It's close to the city without being too close, and only a short 10 minute walk to the main shopping plaza. We would recommend this as a great place to stay, exceptional value compared with other accommodation in Cairns

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.
