Awesome staff and nice apartment
Great unit and wonderful, friendly staff. They let us borrow umbrellas, assisted with faxing internationally, and were more than accommodating with luggage storage. Highly recommend.

Very Good8.0
The staff — Aislinn and Kevin were SUPER friendly, helpful and nice. The room itself was great but the problem is it was up 2 flights of stairs — no elevator and that was a huge problem with my bad knee - i really hurt myself and still in pain from it. It a bit out of the main area so you spend money on uber every time you go and come back and a building next door is a bit sketchy The experience was good because of the staff

Very nice place to stay, the whole family enjoyed it. The only complaint is that the internet service there was useless, it kept dropping and was very slow if it worked.

Spacious but you take your chances on cleanliness!
We returned to Cairns after a week of diving and stayed in townhouse #22 for 1 night. Spacious 2 bedroom, 2 bath. Area is a little dicey at night. There were 2 homeless couples living in the shrubbery across the street. The apartments are individually owned and were decorated in the same plain manner. We stayed in unit #10 and had bedbugs! I checked the beds before we slept in #22 and removed the stained bed pads! Housekeeping needs to wash these between guests. Thankfully No bedbugs in this unit! There were ants on the kitchen counter as there were in unit #10, which I forgot to mention in that review. The best attribute was the secured parking garage! Internet was intermittent. I own a condo in Cozumel, MX and never have a problem with bugs. Routine extermination is the answer in tropical climates. Management will call a taxi for you.

Apartment #10 complete with bedbugs!
We stayed in a 2 bedroom, 2 bath townhouse on 2 separate occasions. Each unit is independently owned so furnishings basically the same and plain. My son had the king bedroom at the top of the stairs. My husband and I had the back bedroom with twin beds. We stayed 4 nights and could not determine the reason for blood spots on the sheets in the mornings! We were required to "tidy the apartment" before checking out. I found 4 live bedbugs crawling around under the bottom sheets on our twin beds! The pads on top of the twin beds and king bed were stained and looked like they are never washed! Management was surprised and stated they will need to "steam the beds before the next arrivals"! I pity the poor souls! We were not offered compensation either. Internet was slow and intermittent. Upon our return to Cairns we stayed one night in townhouse #22 as prearranged. Other hotels were full so we had no other option. The area is close to CBD but is a bit dicey at night walking alone. There were 2 homeless couples living in the shrubbery across the street. The only good attribute was the secured parking garage! Can't recommend this place.
