Very nice place in Cairn
We stayed for 5 nights on the 2 bedroom 3rd floor. We have a family of 4 and the room is spacious and clean. Wifi works well. The location is a little far from center which required about 20min walk. We have a car so it's not a problem for us. The only thing that could be improved is the lack of a recycle bin so all the plastic bottles etc... are thrown to the trash. I am not sure if they are going to sort them out.

We loved the location and rooms.
We could easily walk to the ward or downtown. It was peaceful on the ocean.

Cleaned and equipped
Pleasant check in. A tad noisy from the airplanes... but anything on the main strip in on the flight path in Cairns. Generally a nice, well equipped unit. 10 minute walk to the action. On the water which is nice.
