We arrived late in Cairns, coming from New Zealand. The system for getting in after hours worked fine, but there was some angst as we were leaving the next morning for a 2-day sailing trip and then returning. The driver was picking us up before the desk opened to store our luggage. But, phew, it worked out. Donovan was there--we scooted our bags in--provided whatever I needed--and off we went. In our short first night I noticed that the apartment was perfect--washer and dryer which we would sorely need since we'd been traveling for 15 days with small suitcases. When we returned from our sailing trip and checked back in for 3 more nights, we took advantage of the accommodations and definitely the private laundry facilities. The location is perfect--in the center of things but still quiet. We could walk everywhere and especially appreciated that we were only a block off the Esplanade. We had some Internet difficulties and really appreciated how accommodating and helpful Donovan was. We highly recommend Il Palazzo to anyone visiting Cairns. It really did feel like a lovely home away from home.
