Lovely stay in Cairns!
Great location and beautiful views from this nice apartment.
It had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Loved the lagoon pool and the park across the street. Darrell was extremely helpful. Can't wait to come back and stay there again.
Perfect location and size of apartment right in the centre of the esplanade but still quiet. Lovely views and most helpful owners.
Great View and steps to restaurants.
Great clean condo, stocked with the all amenities that you would expect, with a great balcony - we greatly enjoyed sitting on the balcony at night. There is elevator access from the condo to the waterfront and lots of restaurants! We did a snorkeling reef tour and the boat pick up is less than a 10-minute walk. There is an excursion booking agent in the street access to the condo building if needed. A Woolworths and BWS less than a 10-minute walk. Love our stay!
Great apartment in a wonderful neighborhood because you can walk to many restaurants and shopping. Buses for excursions pick you up right at Royal Harbor! For snorkeling and dive trips it’s a short walk to the pier to board your boat. The Esplanade is beautiful for walking and relaxing. Several museums and the aquarium is within walking distance. Enjoy!
Great Stay in Cairns!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Darrell’s apartment! It was exactly what we needed for our stay in Cairns. The size was perfect for the two of us. The location was great. It had everything we needed. We didn’t have any problems with check in or with anything in the apartment. We arrived earlier than check in and Darrell was kind enough to let us get in when we arrived. The only two things that we thought there would be was a dryer and a tub, there was neither. The description of the property lead us to believe that there was a washer AND a dryer. There was a washer but no dryer. We had to hang our clothes on the line on the balcony which worked out just fine. It would be good to make that clear in the description of the unit. There was also a picture of a tub that we were expecting. There wasn’t one and that was fine. Again, just make that clear. The view from the balcony was beautiful! We would definitely recommend the property to others!
Accuracy of statements regarding the property
This is a nice place with a great location. However, the statement that there is a Washer AND Dryer is not correct. There is NO Dryer, only a small drying rack on the balcony. If one wanted to dry clothes with a machine there is one available for a charge in the basement, which means that you have to haul wet clothes downstairs, pay for the drying and stay with the drying . That is not acceptable when it is stated that there is a DRYER in the unit. Also, there is no discussion that one could set off the fire alarm by taking a shower! The scare factor that the fire alarm could go off at any time if there was a bit of fog or heat in the unit is very upsetting. There is no ventilation at all except when the balcony doors are open. No vent in the bathroom no vent in the kitchen. The sofa is extremely uncomfortable to sit on and watch TV. The view is terribly marred by the huge Ferris Wheel on the beach which has extremely bright lights till late at night, which shine directly into the unit even through the shutter drapes. Overall a good place to stay but with some issues, especially the NO dryer and the fire alarm.
Thanks for your input. I have amended the information about the pay dryer on Level 1. The information about fire alarm safety is drawn to guests' attention in the House Rules book as well as signage on the bathroom door. There is ventilation in the bathroom, and ceiling fans and an airconditioner in the main room and bedroom. The Ferris Wheel is a community attraction, but I believe that it is temporarily housed on the Esplanade opposite our building. Thank you for your input and I will pay attention to the points you have raised with future guests.
