“Ideal Location”
Reviewed 9 December 2016 for a stay in November 2016

This unit (19) is ideally located just a few blocks away from the seafront and promenade, whilst also a short walk to the shops, etc. Despite its close proximity to everything, it is surprisingly quiet although there is some building work being carried out nearby (but that didn't have any impact on us). The unit is one-bedroom, with a balcony, with all the necessary facilities for self-catering (although there is no oven), complete with air conditioning, but it was more than adequate for the 2 of us for our 10 night stay. We chose not to have the "service" option as we had the benefit of washing machine and a separate drier (which we didn't need to use). The furnishings were fine and the bed was extremely comfortable.
An added bonus was the small swimming pool which guests can use.
There was no internet facility at the unit but there are numerous wifi hotspots around Cairns so no problem.
There is a wide selection of cafes, restaurants and bars nearby so you definitely won't go hungry - not forgetting the supermarkets within walking distance.
This unit is within a building that has 18 other units, some of which are managed separately by the manager on site (Brett). Although he was not responsible for our unit, he was very helpful and friendly which made our stay even more enjoyable.

“Great Little Apartment”
Reviewed 4 December 2016 for a stay in December 2016

Great place only five minutes walk from the Esplande. Kurt was very helpful and allowed us to leave our bags in the room before and after Checkout.
There is a communal pool and BBQ which you can use. Plus free secure parking below if you hire a car.
Highly recommended.
Make sure you go for a swim in the Lagoon (an amazing free outdoor swimming pool/beach) only a ten minute walk away.

“Cairns Hoiliday”
Reviewed 13 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Centrally located unit with pool, BBQ area, balcony. Close to everything, short walk to waterfront park and council pool, eateries and pubs. All self contained and nicely presented. Manager on site to book tours etc. Internet on site but you have to purchase. No Foxtel which as a sports nut was a bit of a let down

“clean, pleasant, close to everything, needs some minor upgrading”
Reviewed 19 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

person found this review helpful

Microwave but no microwave dishes, no fry pan (we bought one), no plugs in bath, hand-basin,or trough. If you have guests or more than 2 persons bring their own wine glasses. Only 2 pillows on bed but 2 found later under the pull out sofa after we purchased another . Refrigerator badly needed defrosting - no ice cube tray. no room for ice cream. Would have been nice to have a DVD. Otherwise couldn't fault the unit for a 2 week stay. the owner only has some units in this block of 12 or so but the other manager is pleasant and will book tours, car hire and wifi rent if asked..

“Very convenient for walking to shops,the esplanade and restaurants.”
Reviewed 31 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Very convenient for walking to shops,the esplanade and restaurants. Our room overlooked pool and was very quiet. The unit had all amenities including a washing machine which was very convenient. The kitchen was well equipped and had extras such as diswashing liquid supplied in adequate quanitity for a long stay. Good value for money.
The only sugguestions would be to have another set of pillows, so that people could choose soft or firm. The pillows were very hard and flat, difficult if guests enjoy reading in bed. Add an extra hand towel as with regular use in a humid enviroment they get smelly quickly, even though we washed the towels during our stay.

“GREAT LOCATION BUT...”
Reviewed 7 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

This apartment is well located for shopping and tourist facilities in Cairns....it is comfortable but a little worn... with cooking elements that should be repaired ( a hotplate has been provided but it is awkward on the bench) We would recommend this apartment but lots of other things are dated so an upgrade would put it in the well recommended category. Can you believe they ask for guests to complete a rating but "do not provide a pen as they are normally dried out by the time you need them"? My pens last for several years!! They did provide complementary coffee and biscuits which had definitely dried out so perhaps they need to better service the small things.
