Sea Point would be the pick of the holiday apartment complexes at Trinity Beach we have stayed in over the years. More modern than others, more spacious and better appointed.
The position is perfect - right next to the palm-fringed beach and only a level 100 metre walk from restaurants, but not right next door to these, so quiet at night. In the Northern Queensland climate it can get quite sticky, and you do not want to be staying at a place up a lot of steps from the beach or you lose the benefit of a swim. In contrast Sea Point is at beach level so nice and easy to walk anywhere. The lifesaver patrol and stinger net is about 50 m down the beach so very close. We are getting on a bit in age and if you were elderly it would be perfect - a level walk from the covered carpark with your luggage and then a lift to the unit - it was sprinkling a little with rain when we arrived and we didn't get wet at all.
I much prefer the Northern Beaches at Cairns rather than the city - more easy going, and you have a lovely beach to walk along either north or south. It helps to have a car - the most convenient shopping centre has a Coles and is up at Clifton Beach about 5 minutes away, but there is also a small IGA (not sure) on Trinity Beach Road and also a milk bar 100 m away which is quite expensive so avoid it for your main grocery shop.
We stayed in a beachfront apartment. The one we had was enormous - two generous bedrooms, all mod-cons and 4 or 5 air-con units. There was also a large balcony with comfortable chairs for relaxing. The owners or managers have thought of everything - there were two DVD players and two flat-screen TVs. There is wireless internet too - I think it cost around $50 for the week we stayed but it is much more convenient than the $6-8 per hour that the milkbar charges.
There is a great barbeque set-up next to the swimming pool. About half the time we ate in - the kitchen is fully equipped. Other nights we ate out - the best, and closest, is L'Unico which does Italian style food. Another night we ate out at Palm Cove.
The managers are lovely people - Ian and Karen from memory, and they could not have been more helpful or welcoming.
We didn't want to leave.
