“Spacious but tired”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 December 2012

The apartment was spacious and clean. The "For Sale" sign is a little off putting when arriving but the manager to be fair was courteous and helpful especially as we arrived in the evening with no food. Not only did he take us to a local fuel station to buy simple food, the next day he took us to the town centre allowing us to hire our car.
I must admit the wifi signal was very weak and we needed to go outside and down the steps to get a connection

Room Tip: Do not park under a tree in Cairns...removing bat excrement takes time

Stayed for 2 nights with our two kids. Very spacious rooms overlooking the pool with a large living area. The manager was very helpful and accommodating. Maybe a 5 - 10 minute drive into the CBD. Would definitely stay here again.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 October 2012

I am traveling with a friend and we were impressed with the size of the unit, very spacious, clean and a well stocked kitchen. The furnishings were a bit outdated which didn't bother us a bit. The beds were very comfortable. The manager there went out of his way to help us organise tours with a good discount in fact nothing was too much h trouble for him he offered us maps a d directions even offered to carry our bags up to our apartment!

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 September 2012

Stayed four nights with two adults and four children. Well equiped with kitchen, washer and dryer, this accommodation is truly self contained. Pool and BBQ facilities also great for holiday cooking with the kiddies. Great home base, central to all Cairns has to offer (DFO just around the corner) whilst being far enough off the main road to be nice and quiet. Can't be beaten for the price and comfort for a large family, we will definitely stay here again.
