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 (Wimdu website, reviewed on 07/01/2014) and a beautiful description.
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.

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.

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.
