Clean with good facilities, however its under the flight path of incoming planes. Only 15min drive to airport so planes are quite low. Good value for money. Great to have a kitchen & laundry facilities and balcony is good size. Hire car essential.

What a wonderful place to call home while visiting Cairns. Helen is absolutely the best and was so accommodating & helpful. Resort is well maintained, clean & has everything you could need for a really wonderful stay. Pool area was a really great retreat after a long fun day into Cairns. Local amenities close by and close to bus routes... More

The descriptions online of this place are misleading. This is not at all a resort. There is a golf course across the street, but they are not connected. The rooms are tiny, and the furniture is uncomfortable. If you use more than your allotted 2 rolls of toilet paper in a week, you have to buy more. The air conditioning... More

This is a great little place and we were very comfortable in this northern beaches accommodation. The term "resort" to my mind doesn't quite fit - and we were glad about that. It was very comfortable, self contained accommodation, much like a motel with a pool. It was great to have our own washing machine and dryer and they even... More

Visited last year while visiting friends and relatives. Great location, across the road from the Golf Course, the Boat Club is also within walking distance, however they also offer a courtesy bus. Accommodation itself was spotless and included everything you would expect. Very friendly manager. Highly recommended.

We were limited in our choices for an exchange for our RCI vacation points, and this seemed like a good location for exploring the Cairns area for a week, and it worked for that. The room was comfortable and clean, and having laundry facilities in the room was very convenient. It turned out not to be much of a "resort",... More

We only spent 1 night but wished it was more. The unit was lovely with everything including cooking facilities, washing machine n dryer. It was clean n compact and modernly decorated.The location was quiet and peaceful but still close enough to nearby attractions. The manager was genuinely friendly and very helpful. We would definately recommend this property for any length... More
