Spacious, modern apartments beautifully fitted with every facility. Welcoming email explaining check-in procedure prior to arrival and a delightfully warm welcome on arrival. Local facilities and location instructions were provided. Personal attention to guests was exemplary. Wide balconies overlook the twin pools in the apartments and the beautiful Esplanade and bay opposite. Right opposite also is Muddies restaurant and amazing...

We booked a three room apartment and got appt 28, a corner apartment on the 5th floor. It was airy, spacious, beautifully decorated and equipped with a huge balcony offering 270 degree views across the bay, Trinity Inlet and the mountains behind Cairns. Kitchen was state of the art and everything spotless. Would not hesitate to come back here. Tania...

We stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment with swim out pool. So much space in these apartments! We loved the swim out pool. Great location across the road from esplanade, and the best Thai restaurant is just down the street from here. If we return to Cairns we will stay here again :)

If you are traveling with family this is a great choice. Located with an ocean view on the Esplanade the units provide ample room for a group to spread out. There is a full kitchen with literally everything. Oven, full size fridge/freezer with ice machine and filtered water, microwave, dishwasher even a waffle maker/griddle. If you need groceries head to...

My family of 5 stayed in a three bed apartment over Christmas and could not have been happier with our choice. We stayed in Cairns 2 years ago and had been disappointed with the standard of the accommodation, but this time we got what we wanted. The location is spot on, a stones through from the esplanade, with great views...

My family of four stayed for one week in a two bedroom apartment. The apartment was very spacious and had all the amenities required for our holiday. Quite a good location with a 7 minute leisurely stroll down to the main restaurant precinct. We hired a car for the week and the convenient underground car park was a bonus. Cairns...

Overall, our apartment was nice, though you could tell what had been done for flash and what corners had been cut. My main complaint is that while there were indeed two bedrooms and two bathrooms, as booked, one bedroom was twice the size and comfort of the other. Unless you are traveling with your servant, I don't see any equitable...

Booked out of ramada early and luckily managed to book a 3 bedroom apartment here. Fantastic. Quiet. Beth and Wayne were very friendly and helpful. Rooms lovely. Clean. Pool private and quite. Right in the heart of town but still very private. Beds comfy. We went for the penthouse not that much more expensive but worth it for us. Great...
