After searching on line about 15 apartments, we settled on Reef Gateway, and were SO glad we did. First, the amenities: we rented an air-conditioned two-bedroom apartment, which had a spacious balcony (with a table and four chairs) looking through the trees to the swimming pool. Everything in the apartment was clean and all the cutlery and chinaware couldn't be faulted, likewise the beds. The location was superb: a very short stroll on the level Esplanade (note the warnings about crocodiles along the beach!) to the Cairns central business district, a great pub (the "Cock'n'Bull") diagonally opposite and serving unbelievably generous meal portions (we shared one meal between two), a mini-supermarket on the main street also diagonally opposite, and the huge, new Cairns Hospital directly opposite. Pam and Russ Elliott, the resident managers, could not have been more helpful and generous with their time, and were anxious to please. They succeeded! We'll be back again next year and wouldn't think of staying anywhere else.
