Modern, comfortable 2 bed apartment located in resort with beautiful rainforest surrounds. Only a short stroll to the beach.

The Space

Please always first put an inquiry in (email me) before you put a booking through!!!This modern renovated Apartment is located in Palm Cove amongst 100 acres of lush tropical surroundings that we share with the Grand Chancellor resort (former Novotel). Palm Cove is an internationally acclaimed beachside village conveniently located between Cairns and Port Douglas.

You have access to a golfcourse, a sports centre(including lappool, squash courts, sauna)tennis courts,restaurant and 7 pools to choose from (including the magnificent crocodile slide pool for the kids). There are daily yoga and zumba classes at the sportscentre. So much to do. The classes and use of the sport facilities come with a small fee.
There are free Barbeques and nice area's to sit around the building.

All the facilities at the resort can be used.

The apartment is beautifully decorated and furnished. You will find every thing there that you will need. I do also supply beach towels besides the normal bath towels.
It is located on the top floor (3rd) and the views from the living area are rainforest with lots of birds, butterflies and nice rain forest noises. As it is top floor you will feel the nice cool breeze going through the apartment. It is a quiet and relaxing place.

I don't have wireless in the unit, but guests have been telling me that they go to the restaurant and use the wireless there. Of course I can't guarantee that :)

Here is a review from a guest that stayed in the apartment ((website hidden) website, reviewed on 07/01/2014) and a beautiful description.

Hi Annelies,
You've received a review from Gary for your accommodation ‘Best Value Apartment in Palm Cove’:

Annelies, what a lovely setting for your apartment. The apartment was lovely, clean tidy and everything there what you could need to make your stay a nice one, the view from the balcony was a stunning view and you could see the Parrots flying down from the rain forest on a morning and we even managed to catch a glimpse of the kangaroos making there way round the outskirts of the pool early morning. The location was second to none, the pool we had to ourselves everyday with the exception of 1 day. The apartment was set in lovely grounds and was a relay nice and quite location. The walk to Palm Cove was fantastic through the little rain forest. I would not hesitate to stay in your apartment if i was in the area in the future. Many thanks Annelies for the use of your lovely apartment. Hilary,Aimee,Louise and Garry.

The apartment is only a short walk to the beach and restaurants and shops. It is a great and quiet place to be. Great for families with kids, but also wonderful for couples.
There are buses leaving every half an hour for Cairns and to the other nearby beaches.
Also there is car hire available in the village.
All the tours to the reef and rain forest do pick ups at Palm Cove.

Palm Cove is the best place to be. Only 30 minutes from Cairns, away from all the hustle and bustle but still close enough to visit.
Also Port Douglas and the Tablelands are only a short drive away.

Just send me a email for more information. Price is $99 (minimum stay 7 nights) for off season, but will rise to $175 for holiday periods and peak season. That is still 50% cheaper as what the resort charges(up to $350 per night) for their renovated units in the same block. So please email and let's negotiate. Always put an inquiry in first (email me) and discuss with me before a booking as the prices vary through the year and I don't seem to change this on this website.

Price for June, July, August, September and October(the busy season) is $150 per night,but I do require a minimum 4 nights stay for this. The school holidays are $175 per night.
Then in November and start of December, price will drop to $99 (for stays of 7 nights or more) to $120 per night. Remember the apartment is located in a resort with all the extra benefits included. At this stage I have 25 till 29th of June, 13 till 17th of July, 26 till 30th of July, 11 till 21st of August, 24th of august till 3rd of September, 17 till 20th of September, 1 till 23rd of October available of the busy next 4 months.

Guest Access

Guests have access to all the facilities at the resort but some come with a fee.

The Neighborhood

Palm Cove is the best place to be while holidaying in Far North Queensland. It is only a 30 minutes drive from Cairns or from Port Douglas. Very easy to get to all the reef, to the Tablelands and to Cape Tribulation or the Daintree.
I has a beautiful beach with a jetty. Palm Cove is a picturesque and quiet village but still with the shops, café's and restaurants that you would expect here. Lots of wild life around the place like birds (cockatoes, lorikeets etc), butterflies, wallabies (kangaroos) and so on.

Getting around

Buses leave every 30 minutes to Cairns and return.
Bicycles can be rented at the resort (sport centre).
Car rental in the village. Village, beach and shopping centre are in walking distance (5 to 10 minutes)(shopping centre in Clifton Beach about 40 Min walk).
A medical centre has just opened in Palm Cove.

Other Things to Note

Also the Australia Zoo is down the road.

    Response from Annelies:

    Hi Lesley,

    I am sorry that you experienced this. The micro wave works very well but kept in the cupboard to keep the bench tidy as not every one wants to use a micro wave.
    I did notice that the metal tray in the oven has disappeared and I will replace this. Thanks for pointing this out.

  • Cet appartement est très agréable et est situé à 10 minutes à pieds de la plage de Palm Cove. Il permet d'accéder aux piscines du resort, dont une est particulièrement adaptée aux enfants. Il faut par contre prévoir 40 minutes en bus pour rejoindre Cairns, mieux vaut donc prévoir une voiture pour visiter la région. Il faut aller dans les cafés de Palm Cove pour vous connecter à internet.

  • We really enjoyed our time in this nice apartment in Palm Cove. It was clean and spacious and nicely furnished. We were four people and the apartment was perfect for a family. The whole complex is taken care of very well, and the swimming pool was well kept and nice to swim in. The view from the balcony is fabulous. It is only a ten minutes walk to the beach and the restaurants and shops in Palm Cove. We didn´t get to know Annelies during our 10 days in this apartment, but we didn´t have any questions, so that was no problem. The only thing we missed was wifi. It isn´t available in the apartment, which would have been nice in order to communicate with family back home in Europe and also to find out about things around Palm Cove. So we went to a restaurant in Palm Cove in order to have wifi (which wasn´t easy because most of them didn´t offer wifi). This is no problem for people who have free wifi on their mobile phone, which we didn´t because we were visiting from Europe. Palm Cove is a good place to take walks at the beach and to do excursions to the rainforest , to the tablelands and to the Great Barrier Reef (which we did and enjoyed!). We definitely recommend this nice apartment and this location!

  • Great location and accommodation- would happily use again. We are a family of 5 and this was ideal for our needs. All equipment required to self cater and do laundry available. Swimming pool great and the kids loved it. Lots of birds around and a Kangaroo sighting in the grounds made our evening. We arrived just before Cyclone Ita and had to spend a day indoors but were very comfortable and felt safe- Annelise gave clear advise and had ensured that emergency candles and water were provided if power and water were lost! Because of the cyclone we were unable to travel to Daintree Forest as planned and Annelies kindly allowed us to extend our stay. Palm Cove is lovely even after a cyclone.

  • I had a wonderful short break at Annelies' lovely apartment. It is a great place and I'd love to come back sometime. The highlights were the peace and quiet, the fantastic swimming pool (large enough to swim my daily laps and I had it to myself every day) and going to sleep and waking to the sound of birdsong. Also the lovely walk from the apartment to the beach and the village. I was in wind-down mode so took my time to walk to Clifton Beach for some groceries (the 'supermarkets' in Palm Cove don't have much and are ridiculously overpriced) and as it was raining I caught the bus back. Lovely restaurants in the village too of course, but I was working and enjoying the apartment so much I didn't have much urge to leave! I met Annelies just briefly as I was leaving and she seems like a really lovely person. Might bheck out her other place next time I'm up that way! Thanks Annelies!

    Hopefully, you can make it to Yorkeys Knob next time.

  • We had a wonderful stay at Palm Cove using this accommodation. It was extremely clean with all the amenities you would require such as bath towels, beach towels, ample linen and blankets and airconditioners in each room. The stove and oven worked great with fully stocked plates, bowls, utensils etc. The crocodile and local pool was clean and warm. A nice stroll to the beach and main street of Palm cove. We also used the gym/sports centre in the complex.
    We had a toddler staying too so it was wonderful to have a high chair, port a cot and stroller supplied so we didn't need to transport any of those interstate. Also a bonus to find children's books, balls, pool equipment, tennis rackets and paper and pencils in the cupboards. I would not hesitate recommending this unit as we had an amazing time and we were 100% happy with this accommodation. We hope to stay here again. With all the little extras it was very affordable and very family friendly.

  • Fantastic place in a great location, Annelies was a great host that also provided lots of great infomation about the local area. I would recommend this place to anyone.

  • We stayed with a 17month old and this flat was very baby friendly, quiet and the block of units pool was perfect for us with a very shallow shelf and good shade. There was also a cot and high chair.

    Airconditioning was also good at keeping place comfortable

    The complex is a little out of town (maybe a ten/ fifteen minute walk) which didn't phase us but some people may want to take into consideration

    September 2013
  • Great location for a family holiday. Beautiful shaded pool in the complex plus great resort pool also available. Annaliese helped us by proving a cot and high chair. We had a really lovely time.
