We will be back
Opposite the ocean with all apartments having great views. Two swimming pools that were great as nearly always empty. 3 x airconditioners in the apartments which are huge inside. Very good location two doors away from where restaurants start on the esplanade and the rsl club which is airond and tasty food is next door. Very quiet in the complex as never woken up by noise our entire trip.

Location is so convenient that we simply walk to the Lagoon, the Pier, the Cruise terminal, restaurant, supermarket, and a lot more! Super easy check in, communication is so smooth that all my inquiries were answered without any delay. Love the apartment! Beautiful sea view, sparking clean, comfortable bed, and powerful aircon is a must-have in Cairns. All in all, my whole family enjoyed the stay, and will not hesitate to choose it again when visit Cairns in the future.
