Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Location was convenient—close to airport and attractions. Also, walking distance to cafes, restaurants, and convenience store. View was beautiful. Unit was immaculate, well-organized, and well-stocked. Very peaceful and quiet. I would highly recommend.

Property's Favourite Review
Beautiful and comfortable apartments, ideal beachside location and views and most importantly amazing hosts and great service. We were stranded in Cairns for a few extra days due to cyclone Jasper but could not have hoped for a better place to stay during this time. Clean and comfortable couches and beds, the kids had their own room and bathroom, wifi was very good even in the middle of the storms and bathrooms felt very luxurious. The kitchen felt like home and you could do any level of cooking or baking - very well appointed with everything you’d need. Thank you Di and family for a great stay and thanks also to Amanda for looking after us when we arrived. Wish it could have been with better weather. Maybe next time!

Just returned from a visit to Seachange apartments. Cant recommend them highly enough. They upgraded us to a roof deck apartment overlooking the ocean. It was idyllic. The apartment was very clean, very well equipped and the staff truly catered to our every needs. Cannot fault this place. Amanda and the staff are amazing! Our flight out of Cairns wasn't until 7.50 pm and they were happy to extend our car hire to give us flexibility on the last day! Would definitely go back here again. Thank you for an amazing stay!!

We had booked a 4 night stay at the worst possible time. Cyclone Jasper had made landfall a few days before we arrived but the after effects left Cairns with the worst torrential rain and flooding not seen for 50 years. Luckily, we were at this spacious apartment overlooking the beach with comfortable beds, plenty of amenities. We are so grateful for the staffs who gave a carton of milk when we couldn't get out in the rain and later loaned us their car so we could get supplies as Cairns was almost cut-off from the mainland. The staffs and the beautiful place made our holiday here a memorable one despite of all the challenges we faced. We definitely come back here when we plan our next trip to Cairns.

Our stay coincided with Cyclone Jasper and the floods. The staff at Seachange could not have been more helpful and reassuring. They went out of their way to assist us with the use of a car and accommodating us when our flight home was cancelled. The location and apartment were excellent, but the staff in reception, the cleaning staff and everyone we chatted with over our 2 weeks were exceptional. We wish you well and thank you for your beautiful hospitality.

Tbh Sea Change Beachfront Apartments was 100% perfect for what we needed. We are Kiwis and our communication prior to our travel was the key imo to our stay. I am a complete leg leg amputee with a severe mobility impairment, however my fitness is good. My wife was in constant communication with SCBFA from the beginning and an easy access shower was essential which was supplied. We were delighted on arrival to discover our apartment had been upgraded. We therefore stayed in one of SCBFA best apartments and were overjoyed with it. For a start it was huge. We did not need to use the second bedroom. It was immaculately clean. The view from the balcony was phenomenal. The apartment had a relaxed feel/atmosphere to it. The TV was perfect and all channels were accessed easily. Furniture and chattels were clean and in excellent condition. Kitchen appliances all clean and in excellent working condition. Our bed was clean, comfortable and easy to sleep in. The on-suite bathroom was clean and excellent functioning. I had zero issues entering and exiting the shower. Toileting was perfect for my higher needs. There was a few steps in our apartment and negotiating them wasn't a problem at all - however I am fit for my age and mobility impairment. The main feature to impress us at SCBFA is the atmosphere. Relaxed. This was key to our stay. We prefer quieter environments over faster paced stressful and chaotic nut bar factories e.g. Queenstown NZ. After all we were on holiday - to celebrate my 60th birthday. The second main important ingredient for our holiday was water. We prefer staying near it. Agan SCBFA delivered superbly. Not only was waking up in the morning almost a dream like surreal experience for us, it was quite frankly breathtakingly therapeutic. Every morning I went out to the apartment balcony to experience paradise at/in its most beautiful state. Peaceful & tranquil. We come from a location in New Zealand where southerly winds prevail, along with schizophrenic weather conditions. The only constant is its inconsistency. So naturally again the weather in Trinity Beach was idyllic. The pool facilities at SCBFA was perfect. We were fortunate to travel during quieter times of the year. Therefore the pool wasn't obviously crowded. I was able to move with caution around the outskirts and entering and exiting the pool was possible. The spa pool was great. There were painters working at SCBFA while we were there and this didn't disrupt us at all. The artwork is so refreshing to see and really accentuates the atmosphere and beauty of the architectural design of the building. Culture permeates SCBFA. Finally we were allocated a vehicle to transport us around the area. It too was perfect. Although we did find parking it a little difficult in the car park as I need more space than able-body people to enter and exit the vehicle. We would like to thank the owner/s and staff of SCBFA for our stay it was greatly appreciated and we would have no hesitancy in recommending and returning.

This is a fantastic place - right across from the beach. The place is immaculate, wonderfully furnished and equipped. We enjoyed the three days we spent here. The washer and dryer came in handy and the kitchen was great as well. We made several breakfasts and a dinner - just needed a cutting board! The staff were great and allowed us a late checkout. There are several restaurants and a convenience store within walking distance. We would love to stay there again if we were to visit in the future.

I cannot recommend Sea Change highly enough - on arrival our room had been upgraded, we were checked in early and a car was arranged for us before the allotted time with a complete absence of fuss. The room and terrace had everything we needed and the pool was lovely - I wish I had taken advantage of the free gym pass as well. A truly beautiful location and an extremely well presented hotel with incredible helpful, friendly staff.
