We booked a 3 bedroom apartment for 6 guys celebrating 2 birthdays. We were very hesitant in booking the accommodation as we were worried we may have been pointed to stay elsewhere. We stayed for 3 nights and were very surprised we had no complaints as we were quite loud during the day with music. There is a "No Party...

Swim out apartment enjoys a quiet view of the Esplanade (pass the main restaurants area and facing the kid playground) and direct access to the pool Spacious balcony to enjoy sunset Drawback is that the pool is for sharing and when you sit in the lounge, you can hear noise from other guests in the pool

This place is a true gem. From start to finish our stay was certainly 5 star and couldn't be faulted. The staff were friendly and attentive - nothing was too much trouble. The facilities were clean and of exceptional quality. It was so good, we had to drag the kids out of the place to go sight seeing. We will...

We had a unit with a swim out pool which was pretty good. Easy walking distance to central Cairns and a great little coffee shop two doors down. Free parking space for a car...but you don't really need one...fully equipped kitchen and BBQ on the premises for guests to use. Very relaxing holiday..

We too stayed in apartment 2 for 10 nights, while the living area is quite roomy the overall status is not 'luxury 5 star'. None of the kitchen doors close correctly, sliding bedroom doors continually get stuck while trying to close or open, basic kitchen equipment, and toilet seat lose. When booking this property one of the main considerations was...

Can't praise these apartment highly enough. We had one on the fifth floor overlooking the sea front. Enormous balcony. Fantastic views. The apartment was fully equipped with modern quality appliances. Very quiet location at the end of the main part of the promenade. Just a few minutes from restaurants and only 10 minute walk to the harbour end of town....

This is Cairns so we weren't expecting a high class place. This place is definitely not a 5 star apartment. It was clean at first and in a good location just down the street from all the restaurants and shops (FYI just a tad bit far to walk when raining). There's definitely other comparable places that were closer and at...
