A 3 story apartment hotel set around a nice pool and garden area across the road from the quiet Holloways Beach. The 4 blocks are tropically named - Orchid Avenue, Bougainvillea Parade, Frangipani Lane and Hibiscus Court. Arrival 4/5 - easy to find on the beachfront at Holloway Beach. Plenty of parking available. A friendly and efficient check in. Plenty...

I finally found the perfect place to stay. I come to Cairns regularly for business, I have stayed in many, many places and do not have the urge to stay in any of them again. Some of which were between 4 and 5 star! Prices are fantastic too. I loved this little resort. Have already booked it again for my...

We stayed a week at this resort, on the beach in Holloways Beach, Cairns. We enjoyed the very relaxed and comfortable resort and the staff were most helpful and very friendly. Our 1 bedroom apartment had all the home comforts we needed and the super king sized bed was difficult to leave every morning! The resort has a lovely pool...

This is an apartment complex surrounding a swimming pool and across the beach from the ocean. Very clean, large apartments with great kitchen facilities. Could have used an air conditioner in the living area as well as the one in the bedroom. There is a great beach with a swimming area complete with lifeguard. There is a bar/restaurant on the...

Arrive and relax is exactly what we did. We purposely booked Australis Cairns Beach Resort as it was out of town and close by to friends who lived in Machans Beach. We enjoyed the fact that we were not surrounded by shops and restaurants and far away from the crowds found in town. We checked the resorts website so we...

1. These are more "serviced" apartments with swimming pool and tour booking service, rather than a resort. There is a beach across the street, but when we were there in December, most of it was closed off due to jellyfish. The closest restaurant is across the street and is basically a convenience shop where you an order at the counter...

Thank you for taking the time to review the property. There are two kinds of tariffs that you can book when staying with us. We have a holiday service and a daily service. The daily service rate is higher than the holiday service. You booked the second unit on the cheaper of the two rates which gives you a towel...

We booked two side-by-side one-bedroom apartments on the 3rd floor, one with ocean views. Each apartment has a good kitchen with a complete set of items required to prepare good meals rather than eat out. We would have preferred to have one two-bedroom apartment, but the resort surprisingly doesn't seem to offer that option so the cost is higher than...

Thank you for taking the time to review the property. We do not have two bedroom units as our website clearly states we are one bedroom units.

Unfortunately a room wasn't available in a suite thay was suitable but I would like to say the staff were tremendously friendly and willing to assist with our concerns.

It was our first trip to Australia and we love warm weather and the beach. Our week long stay was great. The beach is right across the street and perfect for a long walk.
