Excellent bird, fish, crustacean and crab watching or check out the fascinating tropical plants, trees and insects right at your doorstep. Bring your binoculars. Stroll along the Esplanade or enjoy the weekend outdoor markets and occasional free entertainment. Supermarket is 100 meters from the back door. Unit has a full-size fridge, benchtop hotplates for cooking and a microwave. Also fully automatic washing machine, large screen TV and sound system. Full outdoor setting on the balcony. Unit is fully air-conditioned. Under-cover parking included plus free use of the gym. Spa bath is a feature. Draw the curtains back and watch the ships come and go from your bath if you dare :) Sleeping arrangements can be twin single or kingsize bed in the separate bedroom and the night-and-day lounge folds out to a comfortable double bed. Tariff is for 2 persons. Additional adults (16 and over) attract a $10 per night surcharge. Cleaning/linen fee of $140 covers all linen hire. Large regional public library at the back door. Local tours available from the tour desk downstairs and buses leave from the front door. As of the 31st of October: China Souther Airlines will be having direct flights from Shanghai-Cairns (3 times a week!) -this great apartment is only 10 minutes to airport -taxi from airport costs about $25. The perfect place to chill and enjoy everything the tropics have to offer....

We were able to walk to the supermarket, restaurants and the marina from our location. Initially the bedroom was configured for a couple rather than two singles but Darrell took care of that very quickly. Would highly recommend.
