“Lovely spacious apartments with beautiful balcony and view”
Reviewed 3 June 2013

Tania and Craig were very helpful, friendly and welcoming. It was no problem for us to arrange a check-in time outside of the normal hours. We were 2 couples so this 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment suited us well. I don't think I've ever stayed in a more spacious unit! The kitchen was gorgeous with full facilities and the balcony was large and overlooks the 2 massive swimming pools and the sea. The apartments are an easy stroll along the Esplanade to many restaurants etc. We would definitely recommend these apartments.
One slightly annoying thing common to many nice hotels is the price of internet. It would be great if some wifi was complimentary with these apartments (as it often is in crappy backpackers!)

What a fantastic place! Great position close to all you need in Cairns, we walked everywhere. Lovely clean apartments, spacious, well equipped. We stayed in swim out pool, worth paying extra as amazing ! Craig and Tania in reception booked all our tours without fuss and even organised pick up from the apartment. What more can I say but wowza...

Stayed there last year for a family holiday, booked a 3 bedroom apartment for 6. Rooms are very modern and clean, fully equipped with all the facilities required. Made breakfast ourselves and enjoy on the big balcony. Would be great value if travelling in a big group.

5 of us who had been acting on a cruise ship from Tahiti to Cairns stayed here two nights to put the final touch to an excellent 3 weeks. We hired a 2 bedroom and a three bedroom apartment. Absolute luxury with every amenity. Great views from large balcony over the waterfront and the two wonderful pools. Central for everything. You really couldn't fault a thing. Luxury, sheer luxury.

This was the perfect place for our family of 4. We stayed in room 24, which was on the 5th floor with a spectacular corner balcony and view of the ocean. The apartment was very spacious, clean, and well kept. 2 bedrooms (master bedroom has king bed, and 2nd bedroom had two twin beds), plus 2 bathrooms (master bath is attached, while 2nd bathroom is directly across kids room). Large living room with TV and DVD player. Bedrooms also had TV's. Came with small washer and dryer and a full kitchen. Made our stay so easy and relaxed, and we loved having the washer/dryer so we didn't go home with a ton of dirty clothes. Walking distance to restaurants, and there is a playground with water features right across the street. Next door at ground level is a mom & pop breakfast and lunch place with authentic Indonesian food - tasty, affordable and such nice owners (son taking orders and mom doing the cooking). Craig was working the front desk and was friendly and helped set up some attractions for us. One of the best stays we've had on a vacation, with lots of room and conveniences of home.

Room Tip: Room 24 was great. 5th floor with large corner balcony.

Stayed in a fully self-contained apartment overlooking the Cairns water line. The hotel is perfectly located & in walking distance to just about everything. It has two very good sized pools & a lovely area to just relax & enjoy the wonderful Cairns sunshine. We stayed for 4 nights & in all reality did not want to leave. Will be going to this place again for sure...

Room Tip: There are 2 types of apartments, one with direct private access to pools or something on higher leve...

My family of 6 stayed in the 3 bedroom swimout apt. It was really nice and big. Nice balcony to the pool. Right across the street was a playground and splash park. The beach is there too although it is not a swimming Beach. You can walk to plenty of restaurants and shopping. There is a grocery store near also. We did not rent a car just took a taxi to the aboriginal night show and the other tours we did the came to pick us up.
