I had a great and awesome stay in Elysium in December last year! My family and i spent six days in the apartment. It did nOt disappoint us, not even for a day. The host, Roger and Jocelyn, were really welcoming and friendly, always on the go to offer us with advices on where to go and how to go. And the places and tours they recommended were really excellent, enjoyable and to our liking. The environment around the apartment is always perfect. The restaurants are all walking distances away, and of course the beach too. I will definitely give two thumbs up to this apartment!

The apartments are well appointed and very clean. The attention to detail and the quaility control is first class. Everything was in perfect working order. With welcome lights and air-conditioners on upon arrival, it was wonderful. Loved the toileties!
The little extras that were offered for hire were most welcome, like beach chairs to take down to the beach and much needed beach towels.
The Managers, Roger & Jocelyn seem to go above and beyond their call of duty to ensure their guests have the best time ever. They know the area well and give frantastic advise in respect to local eating facilities and tours around the Far North. The property is a credit to you both. This was our second stay at Elysium and loved it so much that we're planning on coming back again soon.

VERY helpful and friendly service on call - left us 3 large umbrellas at reception one rainy morning. Warm and welcoming hosts. Spacious, well equipped and super luxurious apartments. Leafy tranquil surroundings just a short walk from restaurants and beach. Even has DVD rental.

Knowledgable and personalized tour recommendations and booking. Great value for money. A definite must stay!!

We stayed at the Elysium Apartments for 4 nights last week and it lived well up to the expectations following tripadvisor reviews and website photographs. Roger and Joycelyn were more than helpful and the apartment itself was very nicely appointed and spotlessly clean. Would strongly recommend it as a base from which to explore the region. Good choice of eateries right on the doorstep. Tip: Tony's Chill Cafe for breakfast!

We arrived at the Elysium Apartments in Palm Cove very late on a Sunday night for four nights. Jocelyn had posted concise instructions for accessing our apartment key and we were able to park our car in covered and secure parking overnight. Our two bedroom two bath apartment was very well appointed with a great kitchen, a large living room and dining area, the balcony was wonderful with a side view of the pool,. The bedrooms were of a decent size with nice-sized bathrooms and showers. We also had a full laundry room with a washer/dryer in the unit, which was a big bonus as we had been sailing for 10 days! This is an excellent location with a few additional important amenities: Great pool with a bbq grill, attached Tavern and Bottle Shop, the beach is only about 2 long blocks away, and it's close to many coffee shops, restaurants, tourist shops, and other fun shopping, e.g. resort wear, home decor, jewelry, cute and unique gift shops, and the standard souvenir shops abound. Roger and Jocelyn-- a husband and wife team-- manage the property and know that service is key to earning the Trip Advisor Award of Excellence for 2010. Jocelyn went above and beyond to help us with our computer needs-- when we could not get our computer to work in the apartment (a technical problem on our end) she "rented" us her Apple computer each day which was awesome! We were also able to make arrangements with Roger for a one-way ride to the airport. Great place and great people! You can't go wrong!

Just got back from a very relaxing stay at the Elysium Apartments. We checked in after hours on a Sunday and had some very clear easy to read instructions left for us to access our room key from the safe box to access our room. The apartments had secure undercover parking which gets locked overnight which is a great thing especially when you have a hire car!!! The apartment was very well laid out and clean and tidy and had all the things you needed for a comfortable stay away from home.
The pool would have to have been one of my favorite things as it was salt water and during the day is nicely shaded by lovely palm trees and was so relaxing to lounge by the pool on a first day in Palm Cove.
From my initial inquiry Jocelyn was extremely helpful and very prompt at returning emails regarding the apartments. It was also great to get first hand advise on where to go in the local area and how to get there. All of the staff at Elysium were very honest and helpful and we were most pleased with the level of service for the duration of our stay at the apartments.
Also the ability to book tours through reception was great and then being able to charge them to our final room charge rather then dealing with different tour companies.
The location of the apartments is very easy to find and is straight off the James Cook Highway and very accessible to all the major attractions in the area. The beach is a short stroll down the road and some excellent shops and restaurants are right round the corner aswell. The local Coles is just a quick 5 minutes down the road and the little shopping complex also has a fruit shop, butchers , bread shop , chemist etc for all the necessities that you would need.
The apartments would be a great selection if you are a family or even in the older age bracket. There is a lift to gain access to the different room floors and I think that Palm Cove is one of the most beautiful beaches that I have seen of the northern beaches. Palm Cove has everything that you could ask for in a hotel destination.
I would highly recommend Elysium Apartments to everybody I know and I cant wait to return back one day in the near future.

We were expecting to be able to cook in a studio accommodation, but studios are like a bare Auz hotel room, except this had a microwave, a bar fridge and a sink. No dining area or sofa or drawers. Since we were here for a week, we elected (and were able to) upgrade to a one bedroom apartment. It was perfect for us. The excellent beach was a few minutes walk from our room., as were many good restaurants and good quality tourist shops. The staff were friendly and were able to rent vehicles and book tours (no extra charge for this service). The pool was clean and BBQ was a bonus for us.
