Located in Palm Cove, this apartment building is 0.1 mi (0.1 km) from Palm Cove Beach, and within 9 mi (15 km) of Skyrail Rainforest Cableway and James Cook University. Great Barrier Reef is 8.4 mi (13.4 km) away.
Excellent value for money. And I loved the way the property is nestled into the environment, like staying in a treehouse.

I have already commented on the resort and I wasn’t happy. We took the managements offer of a refund and cancellation and we moved to another hotel 100 metres away with a lower star rating but whose rooms and staff were significantly higher quality.
The rooms were clean and comfortable and the outdoor kitchen ideal. Loved living on the terrace and cooking at night. Also loved that the pool is surrounded by trees so that you can swim for hours if you want to without being scorched by the tropical sun. The bed was also particularly comfortable. Would have loved to use the spa but the pool beckoned too much.
