Good value vacation apartment

Posted Jul 31, 2014
I thought we got what we paid for. It was a suitable accomodation for three adults who were not planning on spending much time at the accomodation.

Nice large unit next to quiet neighbourhood beach

Posted Jul 30, 2014
Pros: Location
Cons: Update INTERIOR of rooms - especially bathroom, kitchen and all furnishings
Location: nice long beach.
Very uneventful stay. Large one bedroom unit, nice mature well kept grounds, in a predominately residential area. Highly suggest having a automobile whilst there to get around, as really no restaurants or shopping nearby. Only issue was interior was a bit dated, but was clean and well maintained. But considering the price, excellent value, particularly for small family.

Well worth the stay!

Posted Jul 25, 2014
Pros: The Australis Resort is in a nice quiet location away from the noise of the city. However it is only 10 minutes or so by car from the centre of town.
Location: The hotel is right on the beach with a cafe across the road. It is also only 5 minutes away from the Skyrail and easy access to the main highway north
It was our first time at this hotel and we enjoyed the 5 nights there. We got a friendly welcome when we checked in. Our room was clean and comfortable. We used the bar-B-que area and everything we needed was there, including all the cooking utensils. The king size bed was nice. When we checked out, the staff stored our luggage so we could go on a whale watching cruise. We returned that afternoon and were able to collect our luggage and make our flight with plenty of time.

Great escape

Posted Jun 30, 2014
Pros: Location
Next to the beach, cafe and away from the bustle, this is a great place to unwind and appreciate the environment. As a solo traveller, i found this a perfect spot to immerse with locals and get a taste of real beachside community living. Shame the beach has so many dogs being walked, but if you can get over this, then enjoy your stay!

Very convenient apartment just across from beach

Posted Jun 25, 2014
We booked the apartment at a fantastic price. When we arrived we were amazed at the cleanliness and all the necessities you need on a holiday. The washing machine and dryer was fantastic with two young kids. The position is great, close to all the attractions north of the cbd. There is a great shopping centre north of the accommodation called Smithfield which is really handy. The managers were very helpful and friendly. The pool area is well maintained and clean. Plenty of parking and I would recommend this place as we will definitely come back.

Great Apartment-style rooms, right on the beach!

Posted Apr 4, 2014
We had an excellent time; the rooms were great and the staff helped us to book any adventure we'd liked. The hot plate stove was a bit tricky, but we figured it out. We were so glad to have a kitchen in the rooms, as it helped us save some money (we cooked all our breakfasts there).

Great beach position

Posted Oct 27, 2013 on Hotels.com
We loved it. I have marked the condition down a bit as there was, from time to time, a water hammer noise which no doubt will be fixed.

Great accommodation

Really nice self contained rooms, clean & tidy. Facilities were great & everything is well maintained. Small issue with pigeons right outside my window. Staff were very friendly, knowledgeable & helpful.

Best choice for a beach at Cairns!

Posted Aug 8, 2013
It might not have a fitness room- or a jacuzzi...but it is a great stay! out of the downtown- but the bus is quick-cheap and close. The staff there is the best in the world!!- so friendly and helpful...they made it feel like I was staying with friends or family!!! The room was fabulous- so comfortable with everything you could possibly want....the beach was fantastic- rare for these parts! I would defintely recommend this to everyone!!!
