We were lucky enough to stay at the Argosy in Clifton Beach in September 07. What a fantastic find!! The complex has 16 two bedroom units each with two bathrooms, full kitchen, balconies off the bedrooms and a very large balcony running the length of the room from the lounge looking out to the beach. It also has a fantastic pool and BBQ area which made it feel like home!

The apartments are very quiet, and very spacious. The full kitchens and space really meant we could feel at home while here and truly relax. The apartments were also exceptionally clean (which is a bonus when you are there for a week).

Situated 25 minutes from Cairns and 10 minutes from Palm Cove it is close enough to the malls (if you need them, and far enough away to wind down). A short walk across the road takes you to a beautiful beach.

There is not enough I can say about the property - it was quiet, exceptionally clean, and truly relaxing.

If you are heading to Cairnes, don't stay in the city, but head to the Northern Beaches, where Argosy on the Beach is among the best accommodations at a great value. Situated in quiet Clifton Beach, it is directly across the Arlington Esplanade from the Coral Sea. They offer 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom apartments, all of which are beach facing, with balconies that overlook the sea. We enjoyed getting up early to watch the sunrise each morning. The entire complex was remodeled a few years ago, and is clean and modern. The rooms have a washer and dryer and a full-kitchen. As for dishes and pots and pans, it was the best-stocked holiday apartment I have ever stayed in. The owner-managers, Karen and Angelo Cappellazzo, are pleasant and are very helpful with tour recommendations. If you want a little more excitement, Palm Cove is about a 20-minute walk north along the beach. You can also wave down the sunbus in front of the Argosy for a 10-minute ride to Palm Cove, or a 30-minute ride to Cairnes. There is also a Coles supermarket on the bus line or 20 minutes away by foot. Perhaps the only drawback in the area is that there are few restaurants within walking distance for dinner (though we did walk to Palm Cove once for lunch). Two evenings we bought dinner at the super market, cooked it on the barbie next to the pool, and ate dinner on the balcony, which was very enjoyable. Our teenage son and nephew enjoyed walking to Palm Cove on their own to swim at the beach, which they rated much better than Trinity Beach. You can also swim at Clifton Beach right in front of the Argosy, though there was no life guard on duty. We would certainly stay at Argosy on the Beach again.
