We stayed here for a week on the final leg of our 4 week stay in Australia. Angelo was on his way out to their son's wedding when we arived, but the apartment was ready and waiting for us. It is exactly as it says on the website. Balcony overlooking the ocean at the front and forest at the back. My brother-in-law and his family were in the apartment next door and we spent a few nights together eating and playing games in one or the other's place. Highlight of the week was most definitely the day we spent on the GBR!! I can highly recommend booking your trip there with a company called 'reef daytripper'. They are a smaller company (max 20 people) than those that steam out to Green Island and therefore for a nervous 1st timer like me anj ideal way to see the GBR as you really felt as if you were getting personal service, but at a very reasonable price. We paid AUS$ 106 per person and this included tea, coffee, lovely lunch, glass of wine on way back to Cairns as well as cheese and biscuits and fruit. There was 2 hours of snorkelling/diving before lunch then another 2 hours after. Diving was an extra AUS$ 70, but my husband and children tell me it was worth it. Palm Cove is a pleasant walk along the beach for lunch, afternoon tea or dinner (although I recommend a torch for evenings)!!
