Excellent location; very friendly staff!

A great surprise!
Honestly, we booked our room here because another option fell through, and a lot of things were full for the school holidays. I expected that it would be a decent beach motel of some sort. When we arrived, we couldn't believe our luck: the people were wonderful, the room was a lovely self-catering apartment, and the location was right next to a beautiful, quiet beach in easy reach of other, more touristy beaches that are lifeguarded during the week. We may never return to Queensland, but if we do, I'll try to make this hotel our headquarters. My family stayed at a number of hotels in Australia on this trip. All of the others were more expensive--some of them over twice as expensive--but this one was easily our favorite.

Peace at the beach.
We were very happy in our Apartment it was very spacious and homely with a separate bedroom and living quarters! The bed was very comfy with beautiful white cotton sheets and white towels. Linda was very pleasant and friendly and even helped with booking our trip to Michaelmas Cay.

Apartment block is found about 30 mins north of Cairns.Spent 7 days here. Would stay again. The 1 bedroom apartment was very comfortable and well equiped. Full size fridge and stove, washing machine and dryer were positives.Perfectly placed for venturing by car to Kuranda, Daintree, Mossman Gorge and Port Douglas. Palm Cove is 5min drive away. Many varied restaurants available.
