The Edge Apartments in north Cairns is not your typical hotel. There's no 24-hour desk attendant and no room service. But the rooms are spectacularly large and well-equipped. Passing through the entryway my wife and I found ourselves in a large living room adjacent to a full kitchen with refrigerator, stove, and microwave. Nearby is a large screen HDTV and a comfy sofa to lounge on. Further on is a bathroom and beyond is a large bedroom with king size bed. In the bedroom there's plenty of space to hang your clothes and a shelf to stash other belongings. Each room has an air-conditioning unit, essential in the tropical climate. Another big plus is the manager, Greg, who is on premises from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and is there to help out with directions, suggesting things to do, etc. If you arrive after 4 p.m. you'll get directions on your mobile phone telling you how to access your keys. We found the Edge Apartments by chance and have spent a delightful 10 days here in our home away from home.
