Great accommodation

by KTR0105 on 19 Sep 2016 (Family Traveller)

Our second visit to this accommodation. We stayed here for 3 weeks in a two bedroom this time with our son. Very comfortable. Free Wifi and Foxtel. Great pool and lovely views. Undercover parking. Quiet position about 1.5klms from centre of Cairns, an easy walk along the esplanade into Cairns.

Comfortable but not quiet

We stayed here for 10 days. The unit is self-contained, including laundry facilities. It is comfortable and clean, if a little dated. All units look over the Esplanade. The staff (mostly Andrew) are friendly and assisted when required. It is opposite the waterfront towards the north end of the Esplanade and is about a 20 minute walk to the wharf area. If you cannot negotiate stairs ask for a ground floor unit. Also, if you are a light sleeper you will be woken by departing aircraft, as this pro...

If you're staying in Cairns, stay here!

by Emily H on 31 Jan 2016 (Friends Traveller)

I'm from Los Angeles, visiting friends in Brisbane, and couldn't resist hopping the 2 hour flight to Cairns to dive the Great Barrier Reef. I found the Waterfront Terraces on Airbnb (I'm an Airbnb host in Studio City, California). I originally booked a 5 night stay but extended my trip for another 4 nights. I stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment and couldn't be more pleased - it's spacious, clean, and the kitchen is stocked with everything I needed to prepare my own meals. The location fits me well t...

Not a Four Star Accomodation

by travelpenguin2013 on 16 Jan 2016 (Couple Traveller)

My husband and I stayed here for 7 nights as part of our honeymoon around Australia. Overall was disappointed with the accommodations. We payed 150 USD a night to stay here under the idea that this were luxury four star apartments. After a look inside, it was clear that these apartments were more 2 star worthy. First, the apartment was dirty. There were crumbs on the floor underneath the couch and the top of the refridgerator looked like it had not been dusted in months. The door to the apartm...
