Family of 4 for a week in Cairns. The apartments were our base for the week as we toured Cairns and Great Barrier Reef etc. Having 2 rooms, big bathroom and living area was ideal. With early tours starts to be able to have our own breakfast and late finishes to be able to do takeaway and sit and relax was ideal. The bonus of a laundry in the apartment allowed us to wash and dry towels and swimmers each night. The balcony overlooking the water, we enjoyed lots of sunrises over breakfast. About a 20min walk to city and nice to be in the quiet end of town.

The Apartments have the right mix of permanent and visiting residents' to make the Waterfront Terraces a good destination for a short stay. The off street parking is easy to access, once you've found it once and we had no issues with security during our stay. Less than 15 minutes drive to the airport, in your hire car, it couldn't be more convenient, especially for those folks flying in or out on the red eye flights. The Apartment, my American Visitor and I shared, was on the third floor. The stairs are steep, but its only three floors, so its worth the effort, even with a bad knee as I have. There are no elevators here, so if you can't do steep stairs, please ask for a ground floor apartment. The Office Staff were great and provided us with a warm welcome. They also engage a

Located on the "Waterfront" of the Cairns Esplanade. Just far enough along the boardwalk to get away from the noise of the City. A well appointed kitchen and laundry. Very clean and a lovely pool and BBQ area to admire the views. Great value for couples and families.

Only a 10-minute drive from the airport. The staff were super friendly on arrival and our room did not disappoint. The room was sparkling clean and had everything we needed for our stay and more. A great view out onto the water, comfortable beds, air-con (to escape the topical heat) and great Wi-Fi. The manager had many recommendations for things to do and see whilst in Cairns. Everything she recommended we absolutely loved, we couldn't fit it all in! We will be back, and for longer next time! Highly recommend!!
