The apartment is located roughly 15 minutes walk from Cairns city centre. You will need a car or other transport if you wish to do some decent supermarket shopping as the major chains are located in the heart of town. If you have young children, Muddy's is the perfect park for you and is located just across the road. The apartment was a nice size with good facilities.
Management are ok but this place does suffer from some problems- the stench which hit us from the sink as we entered was overpowering. The sink has an "insinkerator" installed and the fumes of rotting food often waft up if you don't run hot water into it very frequently. Perhaps most vexing was a certain dark haired- blue eyed cleaner who would not part with any soaps, tea or coffee- we had to make do with 5 sachets of coffee for 10 days. We were curtly told by her that we were not entitled to anymore as they were 'complimentary'!!!. Someone needs recourse to a dictionary methinks. To cap it all off we stepped on some broken glass dropped by a previous guest which had not been mopped up properly. Cleaning was rudimentary at best and not of a good standard. Only basic housekeeping was offered daily (toilet cleaning and emptying of bins) but hey, look at the good job done on our toilet in the photos. Don't think it was that dirty in the first place. Also, on one particularly memorable day there was a nice muddy footprint directly on our bed linen (which was changed twice in 10 days).
Stay here only if you don't mind crap housekeeping.
