“Fantastic Stay!”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

Thank you to Rhonda and Chris for making our stay a great one! Our self contained unit was fantastic, clean and comfortable with no outside noises! Our room was by the pool with the ocean views directly over the road! What more could you ask for? Great hosts and nothing was too much for them. Marlin Waters was just a leisurely walk from the restaurants,cafes and pubs!

Room Tip: Loved the room by the pool!

Rhonda and Chris - thank you for making my holiday such an enjoyable time. Nothing was ever too hard, even my VERY last minute request for a transfer from the airport was done without a care in the world. As I knew a few others staying in the block; I got to see a number if the self-contained unit. All of them are exceptionally appointed and maintained. I would have no hesitation in recommending people to stay here. Will definitely be back. LOVED Palm Cove.

Wow, We had such a wonderful week. The best location in far north queensland, next door to the surf club, directly opposite the safe swimming beach area, surrounded by wonderful restaurants, bars and shops. The accommodation is very clean, and stylish with absolute beach front views. We had our own balcony in the 1 bedroom self contained appartment, which also had an extra pull out sofa bed. Hosts Rhonda and Chris Henderson were just wonderful, helping us with tours and helpful hints for our week long stay in Palm Cove. We will deffinately be back.

I've just arrived back from a week at Marlin Waters and still can’t stop talking about the trip. The accommodation hosted by Chris & Rhonda is above expectation – Clean, Fresh, Modern and perfect for Friends, Family’s or Couples looking to escape the hustle and bustle of the city. Rhonda at reception is your first stop for everything – Knows the area extremely well from good food to car rental! The location is perfect, very close to great food and boutique shopping and directly opposite the beach – (swimming enclosure directly opposite). Rooms are spacious and all beach front facing will large balconies to enjoy the view from your room. Resort surroundings are perfect, very well maintained and kept to the highest standards. I would recommend Marlin Waters to anyone looking to visit Palm Cove!

Unfortunately our dream beach wedding at Palm Cove was not to be as the rain gods decided to bless us on the day. This would not defeat us due to the perfect location we chose to stay at with a majority of our guests also residing at Marlin Waters for the occasion and commenting very favourably with our choice of accommodation. With the reception (and now ceremony) to be held at the Palm Cove Surf Club, Marlin Waters was ideally situated with magnificent ocean views and proximity to everything. The warm hospitality and assistance provided by Rhonda and Chris exceeded all expectations, including carrying junior Bridesmaids across puddles and escorting the Bride and Bridesmaids under umbrella to the ceremony. A huge thank you to you both for a thoroughly enjoyable and memorable stay. We will be back. Paul and Lucia Connor

We spent a week at Marlin Waters. Rhonda & Chris are great hosts and very knowledgeable in the area so can book tours. The apartment is in a fantastic location steps from the designated swimming beach and was clean and very well stocked. It is among the restaurants and little shops so you can walk to any of them in minutes. All apartments are ocean front with balconies/decks facing the ocean. If we had to mention anything negative, it would have been nice to have 1 hour of free internet a day to check emails, etc.

I'll start off by mentioning the worst part of our stay....leaving! Our stay here was perfect in every way. We couldn't have asked for a better location, friendlier hosts, affordable accommodation and of course a holiday to remember. We loved sitting on our balcony directly overlooking the beach watching the world go by. The apartments are spacious and modern with everything you would need on a holiday. The air conditioning is a huge bonus. We are planning our return trip as I write this review!
