What a lovely stay and rooms are so nice and safe. Great view from rooms too. Nice walk along the water front into town not that far away from great restaurants. The managers are always so help full and very kind. I stay here regularly for business and have never ever had a problem nice quite place to stay.

After diving on the Great Barrier Reef, some friends and I spent one night in one of the three-bedroom apartments at North Cove Waterfront Suites. Walking into the apartment, we were blown away by how great the space was--clean, well-appointed, and great views. We also really appreciated the in-unit laundry--after being on a boat for a couple of days, we...

Hi James, Thank you for taking the time to review. We are disappointed that you had issues with the air-conditioner during your stay. The air-conditioners are only 2 years old and are a high quality brand. You were the first guests in the apartment since they were serviced, and every guest since you in that apartment has not had an...

A lovely quiet place to stay. Apartment clean on arrival and basic necessities ready for a coffee lol. Public transport is non existent past the hospital though which leaves a fair sized walk or taxi fare but this is not the owners problem.

I was with my family in this apartment for 4 days between 17-Jan-17 and 20-Jan-17 while exploring Great Barrier Reef. We were 6 adults staying there. The apartment was brilliant and had all modern facilities as promised. We thoroughly enjoyed the stay and would definitely recommend this to others. Finally, the view from the balcony was breathtaking. Total value for...

We return to North Cove yearly as the service is brilliant, the units are roomy with an excellent location. We love the leisurely stroll to restaurants and night markets not to mention the beaches. Nothing is better than sitting on your balcony of an afternoon overlooking the well maintained gardens and sipping on a glass of wine! Ness and Max.

Good location overlooking the ocean, easy walk to the beach free covered parking. Big well appointed apartment. We enjoyed the stay. It's about 3 minute walk to CBD. Nice amenities in room. The front desk was helpful with travel advice.

Recently stayed at North Cove Apartments with two adults and two children. Young lady at reception was very friendly and helpful. Alloted car space for each apartment was great. Apartment was clean, tidy and kitchen fully equiped. Down side was wifi is slow. Otherwise all good. I would stay here again.

Our adult family is travelling for six weeks so we're trying to find accommodation that is reasonably priced and still gives good value. I booked this via trip advisors partner booking.com where the apartment was shown as 'their pick' and under $200/night total cost during holidays. It is just as described, well even better. The space is large, very clean,...

We, family of 4, stayed at North Cove for a week in November. It was clean, secure, convenient and excellent value for money. A $10--5 taxi fare from Cairns CBD and 15 to 20 min walk down the esplanade
