We have just had a long stay at Clifton Sands in Clifton Beach. We were sorry to leave, but one must go home at some stage.😂 We loved our unit, it had everything we needed on a holiday. Our bed was very comfortable and I loved the hot showers after a swim. I loved sitting out on the balcony in the evening listening to the waves and watching the birds. The beach is just a block away. We swam in the beach and also in the lovely pool at our units. Linda the Manager was very friendly and helpful and was a font of knowledge about the area. Clifton Sands had everything we needed and more. I would definitely stay there again.

If you love relaxation, comfort, simplicity, tropical beauty and cleanliness then you will love Clifton Sands Holiday Apartments. We have just had a wonderful holiday there; we had booked our holiday for four weeks but enjoyed it so much, we extended for an extra two weeks. The apartments have all you could want, very comfortable bed, full kitchen and bathroom along with a very short walk to the beach. One of my favourite times of the day was relaxing on the balcony glimpsing the sea and the colourful birds. The pool and tropical plants are great and Linda, the manager makes you feel at home and is a font of knowledge about the local area and tours. We are looking forward to returning.

We have stayed with Linda and her dogs for several weeks most winters, and find it just ideal. Although this is an older complex Linda keeps it just so. We always feel very welcome, and find the complex very well situated for us with the beach close by and the tennis club right behind. We will continue to use Clifton Sands as our winter home away from home as long as Linda is there. D & J. New Zealand.

My wife and I spent 10 days at Clifton Sands in February 2019. We keep coming back whenever we can afford the fares to visit from the UK. The apartments are comfortable and if there is anything we need Lynda is always on hand to help. With the beach only a couple of minutes walk away and with easy access by road to Cairns, Skyrail up to Kuranda, or up onto the Tablelands we find this an ideal base for the Queensland part of our holidays. Our time at Clifton Sands is one of the highlights of our trips to Australia.

I had the pleasure of staying here at Clifton sands for 3 months, I was there from May till July and I couldn’t of found a better spot of my stay! The units are great, very clean when arrival and they offer cleaning services throughout your stay if wanted. Fully furnished with everything you need but if you were missing something or needed it you could just ask the owner Linda and she would happily get it for you. It’s such a great community around the apartments, the beach is just a minute walk which is amazing and there’s always something to do! Can’t thank Linda (owner) enough she makes everyone’s stay great, she’s so helpful always asking how you are and if you need anything! She helped me so much while I was here didn’t just have to be about the apartment. Keep up the great work! I would totally recommend to stay here, you won’t regret it! Luken

We stayed here for approx 10 days in july and had a fantastic time! Location was perfect for us as we spent alot of time on the beach with our 2 year old. The beach is only a 1 minute walk, practically on your doorstep! Great restaurant/ bar directly accross the road which was very handy or 2 mins drive to the local shops which has a Coles and some nice cafes/ restaurants. Only 5 mins drive to palm cove, 25 mins north to port douglas or back into cairns itself. Great spot to be in for a family holiday! The apartment was what we needed, fully self contained, ground floor which opened out onto the garden which was great for our daughter to play in. Linda who owns the property was always lovely to deal with and very helpful with anything we needed. Will definitely be back next year to enjoy this little piece of paradise!

We have just had a great three week holiday in Clifton Beach. We stayed at Clifton Sands and it was the perfect place to stay and have a relaxing holiday. The units have everything you could need; a fully equipped kitchen, a really comfy bed and a great hot water service- our after-swim showers were always hot! We swam in the beach and pool everyday and enjoyed relaxing on our deck as the sun went down. Linda the Manager, is very knowledgeable and friendly and can assist the guests with advice and book tours to the reef and Daintree etc. I’m looking forward to being back next year and wouldn’t stay anywhere else.

Absolutely fantastic units with all the facilities you need. Especially true when you are travelling with children. We stayed for five days and loved it. The units had a good kitchen with all utensils and cutlery. The laundry had a washer and dryer which is extremely handy during the wet season. If you need public transport the bus stop is a 1 minute walk from the front gate. There is a good restaurant across the street. The beach is a 2 minute walk from the gate. Linda is extremely helpful and accommodating. She is very good with children too. She went out of the way to help us to get to the airport in time as there were road closures due to heavy rain.( This level of rain was very unusual , just our luck) Highly recommend and will stay there again in the next visit.
