“Stunning view, Stunning modern apartment and comfy bed”
Reviewed 26 September 2017 for a stay in July 2017

“There isn't enough great things I can say about Kay and her hospitality! She is so warm and welcoming and truly enhanced our holiday experience! Kay went out of her way to provide suggestions, transportation from the airport, and advice to ensure we had the best time in Cairns. She truly is the best air bnb host I have ever had the pleasure to meet and probably treated me better than my own friends and family when I visit them. :) The location is top notch - right in the middle of where you want to be! The apartment was specious, comfortable, and clean - first class treatment to build our memories! I cannot wait to go back and stay at Kay's. Thank you so much for such a special trip!”

“Beautiful apartment in a fabulous location”

We stayed for 7 days and were sorry to leave! We loved the apartment, it had everything we needed and it was very comfortable. The hostess picked us up at the airport which was a great help. The place is so central that one can get to anything in the town on foot in maximum 15 minutes, including pick up areas for trips to the reef and to the rain-forest. On the days we didn't go on trips, we loved to get up early, walk along the promenade, go for an early swim in the lagoon just opposite the apartment block and back to the apartment for breakfast on the veranda.
The only problem we encountered was that the town free WiFi did not function inside the apartment, only outside on the veranda which was inconvenient for us. We suggest that free WiFi should be included in the price.

We had a superb time in this beautiful apartment overlooking the Esplanade, the sea and the lagoon. Facilities were excellent and the location is first class. No hesitation in recommending Kay & Ross's apartment.

“Great location and lovely, helpful hosts”
Reviewed 5 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Views are as pictured, ocean outlook yet private, despite being right on The Esplanade. Central location to Lagoon, restaurants and shops. Lovely hosts who went out of their way to assist, particularly as we were traveling with a baby.
Would highly recommend.

“If you love water views, this is the place to stay!”

There is so much to see from the balcony, it is fascinating to just sit and watch it all happen. We loved being able to walk to everything, including the theatre. So many choices for eating out and the little kitchen made it easy to have cosy dinners on the balcony. On-site pool with ocean views, gym and tour booking-office on your door-step. Kay and Ross collected us from the airport, so no stress getting there. The shower is very unique! Go and check it out! They don't even mention the lovey view of the mountains, which is spectacular. Ideal for a couple. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

“Perfect position”

The blurb for this place is accurate. It is a great spot overlooking the esplanade with a pool, not that you need one with the lagoon across the road. Kay and Ross are lovely hosts and picked us up from the airport. We are a couple with a 6 year old and the fold out couch is fine, kitchen is well equipped although there are eating out and takeaway places everywhere around here. The lagoon and playground in the Esplanade across the road are great for all especially kids. The apartment is too small for a large family though. The place is pretty quiet and private with the travel desk and reception being very nice and helpful. Would stay here again. When booking/enquiriing go to the Espanadevues website.
