Dear Grant A, Thank you very much for taking your time to give us the feedback. We are pleased that you loved the apartment and the restaurant at our resort. Please allow us to introduce the surroundings. There are two restaurants, one shop and four swimming pools here. It takes about 5 mins to walk to IGA, pizza/fish & chips restaurant, seafood shops and Botanical Garden. A few options to the city like buses, Uber, taxi or walk. It is only 10 mins drive from the resort to Cairns Airport. We will be very happy to provide local, tour or other related information for our guests. We hope that you will consider us for your next trip!

Nice setting and lovely spacious units. Much nicer than a hotel in town. A little bit further out of the city (about 5 - 10 mins depending on time of day), but close to the airport. There is a daily departure from CNS at around 0600, so that is like a wake up call. Parking

No I don’t think so. But the airport is about 10 mins away so not too expensive for a taxi or uber
