We had a wonderful stay in Wendy's apartment, it was spotless with good utensils for cooking etc. the pool was great and the location was perfect. It was air conditioned throughout which was a relief as it was very humid during our stay! Would definitely stay again. Thanks . Conor
Wendy's flat in Palm Cove is really lovely.
When we first arrived we were struck by how clean it was. The flat is furnished well and there were quite a few essential provisions available for us to use. There are also several DVDs which we found useful for quiet nights in although a lot of these are aimed at children.
My partner and I found the flat to be well located as it is an easy walk to the main area in Palm Cove. His parents, however, felt that the walk was a bit further than they would have liked.
The pool in the complex is very nice and we found that we didn't need to use the facilities at the nearby hotel even though they were available for us.
Wendy communicated with us well and was always quick to respond to any queries that we had.
If I had to suggest one improvement it would be to install wi-fi in the flat and this is only because the wi-fi in the restaurants and cafés in Palm Cove wasn't very good.
We really enjoyed our week at Palm Cove. Although the accommodation was set back from the beach, it was a nice walk to the esplanade each day. We also enjoyed using the hotel (Grand Chancellor) pool each day.
The accommodation was as described and we were pleased to find some beach toys for our 3 yr old, plus beach towels and DVDs. The apartment was roomy, well stocked, and had a nice aspect being on the corner of the block. The balcony had a few cobwebs, but the interior was in nice condition. We did not use the accommodation pool, preferring the hotel facilities instead.
The only issue we had during our stay, but it wasn't major for us, was the digital t.v dropped out from time to time, requiring a reset each time. We were also a little nervous by a sign informing us of a $1,000 fine if the fire alarm went off!
If staying in this location, be prepared to stock up with groceries, as it is a 2km walk in to the esplanade, which only has a few mini marts. We did a big shop at the Village shopping centre, which requires a short bus trip each way, but served us well for the week.
We also hired a car one day, which was easy to do on-line and pick up at the esplanade. When you need a break from the beach, head into the Atherton Tablelands - nice drive and interesting places to drop by.
Wendy was polite, attentive and helpful from the beginning and I'd recommend this apartment, particularly for a small family, who are happy to be off the main strip and prepared to walk to Palm Cove (which we enjoyed).
This was a great place just slightly north of Cairns. Easy access to a lovely beach and a great pool. Super clean apt was exactly as described and check in and check out were as easy as could be. Loved our time in Cairns, and loved this place.
Lovely place, clean and it has got everything you will need. The appartment is on the side of the apartment building, so you don't have the feeling of being locked in. Nice views of the trees and pool downstairs so you can keep an eye on the kids if needed. We did not get to met Wendy, but she was there for us nonetheless. Thankfully she is very quick in communicating through AirBnB and suggests things to do as well. We were very satisfied with both the communication and the appartment!
We did not meet our host. Just exchanged a few messages prior to arrival. Arrival worked smoothly. Overall the apartment was OK and Palm Cove is a really nice place to stay. The pool was great and there is a nice balcony. The apartment didn't quite meet our expectations from the pictures on the site. It was very clean but furniture and fittings were a bit dilapidated. There were no cleaning products for the kitchen. The dishwasher is in fact a dish drawer and the plates are too big to fit in, and anyway we found it didn't work very well. We were also put off by a few notices threatening AUD 1000 charges if we set off the smoke alarms, which can apparently happen if you switch the aircon on below 21 degrees or indeed if you cook without opening all doors!
Thank you Wendy. We all had a very enjoyable stay (but too short). Your apartment was perfect for what we needed and we loved the area. Also your directions and instructions were very clear. Thanks again.
