A spotless modern 2 bedroom apartment, fully equipped, airconditioned, modern comfortable furniture and finishings. A comfy beds, beaut ensuite, laundry facilities, modern kitchen with oven, and verandah overlooking the natural free form pool. Wallabies wandering throughout the gardens, and only a short walk to the beachfront and boardwalk.

A nice resort, with great nature and interesting wild life. Wallabies, frogs and exotic birds everywhere, felt almost like walking in the wilderness. The pool area is very nice, with a sand beach. The wifi however was a disappointment and was rarely functioning, but that's also not one of the reasons to come here. Staff was friendly and helpful with...

Booked the Premier 3-Bedroom Apartment on booking.com. Although it says the max occupancy was 4 persons, there was more than enough bed space for 6 people. There were 2 single beds in one of the bed rooms, and 1 double bed each in 2 of the remaining rooms. The apartment itself was spacious, with a big living room and dining...

Wanted a nice place to stay away from cairns city but close enough so didn't have to drive too far. Found this great two bedroom two bathroom apartment at a very reasonable price. Lovely grounds and lagoon pool but didn't get to use all the other amenities as stay was short. Found cutlery and dishes dirty from previous guests. Blinds...

Got a great deal and was pleasantly surprised by our accommodation. Very quiet, clean and the kitchen was well appointed. Lots of local wildlife came visiting (which the kids loved). Was a great place to recharge after being on a cruise ship for 12 days! We had apartment 422, it was tucked away at the back therefore nice and quiet....

The apartment was nice and clean and looked great all you need for a short break. Only problem was the beds... mattresses in both rooms were hard and uncomfortable so were the pillows (like concrete? none of us really had a decent sleep. We like firm mattresses but not like these. The other problem we had was if we opened...

We stayed five days in this resort for a quick break. I didn't look at the site, just booked it and hoped for the best. I took a deal and was so happy with the accommodation. We had a one bedroom apartment overlooking the sand pool which was perfect. The unit was self contained with a starter pack of toiletries,...

We stayed 3 weeks here while I worked in Cairns. The front desk staff were moderately friendly and minimally helpful. We had to ask about the conditions of the lease agreement as the accomodation went over a week without being cleaned by staff. While we maintained the cleaning ourselves, It turned out the agreement was that they changed the towels...
