Sea Change Beachfront Apartments
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 August 2014

The final location on our tour of Aus was designed to be the city of Cairns. In the event we were seduced by the promise of these apartments which are in truth a few miles North on Trinity Beach but it was a great choice. From the outset the team could not have been more helpful, arranging transfers from the airport and allowing late book in. The apartment itself was very spacious and well equipped and had a huge balcony section including its own bbq. The beach was so close that we went to sleep with the sound of the water lapping on the sand. The pool was fairly cool in August, but large enough for our requirements and the free WiFi in the apartment was something of a bonus.

This was a last minute booking - a getaway from cold Sydney. And what an unexpected find it was!

These apartments are really lovely. They are large and spacious (we were in a 4 bedroom but only using 2) and the kitchen has every appliance you could need including a coffee machine.
The location is great, directly opposite the beach. Weather wasn't wonderful for us but kids managed to swim and play footy on the beach everyday.

Trinity Beach is a quiet and sleepy nook without the hustle and bustle of the endless tourists you find further north at Palm Cove or Port Douglas. That is why you would book here, and why we hope to stay again. It is peaceful and very relaxing. There are only a few restaurants that you can walk to, a small set of shops & a small general market but you do need a car to get larger grocery item. Or you can take the car and head for lunch at Palm Cover. However Seachange offer that too - we booked the offer that included a car which made it all quite seamless and fantastic. The suggested reef cruise we took was terrific - especially as I was travelling alone with 2 teenagers! They particularly enjoyed the cruise and snorkeling.

The only negative is the lack wi-fi which I believe is about to be connected. I have suggested to the extended family we book a vacation together at Seachange next year. It would appear most guests are repeat visitors - usually the best indicator about a place. If you want somewhere to recharge your batteries - then I think this is a good choice.

Room Tip: If you want to sit and look at the coral sea view - book the 2nd or 3rd levels. If you have childre...

Our third time staying at Sea Change and you could not ask for a better location. Directly across from the Coral Sea, our apartment had spectacular views we could not have asked for anything better, The apartment was to a high standard and our patio had direct access into the swimming pool, which is especially nice, if it was heated I would rate these apartments a 10/10. Trinity beach resort has a great selection of restaurants with a supermarket close by. All in all another memorable holiday.

This was our second stay at Sea Change. If only we could book the weather, but North Queensland decided to have winter while we were there. Despite the chilly winds we had another relaxing stay in a great spot. Sea Change apartments are spacious and have a really well equipped kitchen and laundry. They are right on the beach and just a short stroll from some very nice restaurants/ bars. There is also a nearby beach side cafe for breakfast & morning coffee if you don't feel like cooking.
Our apartment (13) had three bedrooms & 2 bathrooms, one ensuite to the master, so would be great for a family stay or for sharing with friends. It was neat and tidy, but we felt it was almost time for some decor refreshing in parts.
The pool area is lovely but it was way too cold for swimming this trip.
The managers are very friendly and only too happy to be helpful. We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: All rooms appear to have sea views with a good balcony area. There are some apartments on the 1st fl...

Reluctantly we left Sea Change Apartments 7 August 2014 after almost a 3 week stay. Everything about it is perfect from the spacious luxurious apartment ( equipped with everything you could ever want or need) to incredible views of the gorgeous Trinity Beach with the sounds of waves (so close) which help to lull one to sleep at night ( and sometimes the daytime ;-) )

The gardens and water features throughout the complex are very well looked after and give such an ambience of tranquility and beauty. The management team are friendly, attentive and thoughtful. They do a wonderful job in taking care of us and advising when asked. Everything is kept pristinely clean and tidy by a long serving staff without any sense of invasiveness which just completes the cycle of the serene environment.

There are nice restaurants in a short walking distance along well laid out lit paths and gardens close to the sea edge from the Apartments. Car and bike hire is easily acquired and buses run into the city for a range of activities there including the night market, other beaches and Smithfield Mall. They run approximately half hourly all day till late.

There is a huge variety of tourist trips available in the area from the Reef to Train visits to Kuranga and far more. Lots to see and do as well as relax on beach, at pool or personal outdoor courts or balconies. We like to read the variety of brochures available in the cool relaxing foyer at Sea Change and they help to make your bookings and pick-ups for trips or Airport . Wonderful !

We are a senior couple who have not yet retired from our own farm. Twice our family have visited and stayed a few days with us at our Apartment and loved the experience too and promised to visit with us there again :-)

We have stayed in many Hotels, Motels and Apartments in numbers of countries ( as well as many across Australia )in our lifetime to date but none have we returned to as often. We discovered Sea Change Apartments in 2010 online and it had everything we loved. My husband and myself have enjoyed being there annually ever since ~ we definitely kept the best till last.
We are booked in for next year and hope we will be returning every year till sunset :-)

Room Tip: Can choose ground floor for pool easy access- first floor for generous sunny courtyards, second and...

We have just enjoyed a holiday break at at Trinity Beach. Our stay at Sea Change Beachfront Apartments was really great and is highly recommended for travelers seeking a quiet comfortable venue with excellent beach and water views. Management Staff are excellent and always friendly and helpful. We have booked again for next year.

Room Tip: While the lower floor level is good, the 2nd and 3rd floors would be a better option if available

Luxurious apartment. Absolute beach frontage. Staff were very friendly and helpful. I took my elderly parents and lift from car park to apartment level was excellent for them. Short walk to local shops and restaurants.
