We recently had our annual 'flying' visit Cairns to escape the Victorian weather and once again Tradewinds McLeod Holiday Apartments provided us with a perfect break. The apartments are always very clean. It was wonderful to sit around by the pool and simply enjoy the surrounds and have a BBQ. Excellent location for walking along the Cairns Esplanade at sunrise...

Spacious apartments with everything you need for an independent and comfortable stay. Location a great base - close enough to town, but none of the noise hassles. Convenience store and other handy shops around the corner - Cairns Central Mall just up the road, and town no much further. Wayne and Linda very helpful managers.

Our family enjoyed a wonderful stay, the comfortable apartment was perfect for our family of four. Staff were fabulous and the kids loved the pool. Situated a 5 minute drive to the centre of Cairns it represented great value. Will stay again!

Thanks for your review, it was great having you here.

We stayed here for over a week, and really enjoyed it. The staff here were extremely helpful, and always keen for a chat.

We had a great time on our week's holiday. First up: we loved the location - less than 10 mins from the airport and only 5 mins from The Esplanade. Super easy to locate and quiet surroundings. There's good easy-to-operate gate security overnight. We were 4 adults in a 2 bedroom unit and managed well. There was good space to...

Thanks for your review, good having you here, we are glad you found the accommodation OK. Common misconception people make are the difference between Self Contained Apartments and Serviced Apartments, the latter being much more expensive, a lot of people, especially families, choose self contained apartments because they are cheaper and dont require the extra daily room service or topups...

Thanks for your great review, it was great having you stay with us. Once maintenance issues are reported they are fixed as soon as possible so they don't pile up in a long list and so they don't prevent guests any discomfort or makes things harder for them. Hop to see you again one day.
