Pros: Our room was tidy and nicely furnished, clean bathroom and both balconies were neat. The pool and restaurant were lovely and we were only a short walk across sand form the beach. We had a five minute walk to busses that were always on time and effective in getting us to the city. Cons: The first thing we saw...

Our second trip - first time was great but it's gone downhill. Wifi not available in our room (I had to buy an expensive data sim card in order to work), restaurant shut, other amenities advertised, such as bar/lounge/café/deli did not exist. Pool cleaned just once during our week's stay - I was not happy about using it. Some kitchen...

This apartment building is a short stroll to the beach and in a quiet area, so it ticked those boxes for us. However, the apartment we were given was shabby. The window blind in one of the bedrooms had a big chunk cut away so there was a big square missing. The cane sofa in the lounge was bowed and...

We stayed at yorkeys knob whilst visiting Cairns. We enjoyed our stay and found it to be a relaxing place to be, just outside of Cairns. The rooms were spacious and comfortable and we very much enjoyed the outdoor pool area which was beautiful. The beach was right there and was lovely to walk along

First room we stayed in had no air con and a broken tv. The room smelt like cigar smoke and the bathroom had broken fixtures. When we complained about this we were given another room and had to move our stuff but we first had to set up our own room. In the new room the air con worked but...

Had a great stay. Nice apartment and friendly service. The pool was really nice and the place was clean and tidy. We had a big green frog on the back wall outside keeping us company next to a private area where we had meals. Would recommend this place.

My wife and I stayed here for 6 weeks while looking for work in Cairns, The manager Michelle was very accommodating and friendly. The office was only open until early afternoon but given it was the wet season, and she was always available by picking up the phone, it was never a problem. Rooms were basic but had every thing...

The rooms are old and dirty and there is no beachfront whatsoever you can not see any of the beach at this place. The pool was ok but dirty, Wouldn't recommend staying unless you have to. The complex is quiet I guess because of location. Wasn't happy with it and certainly wasn't value for money
