Cascade Gardens is in a terrific location - you can walk to everything such as The Esplanade, restaurants, the city swimming "lagoon" and a couple of different grocery stores. Our room had a functional kitchen (no stove, so plan accordingly to heat up food via the stovetop or microwave oven) so we were able to purchase and prepare breakfast and... More

I was so happy that I booked Cascade Gardens in Cairns. The management so very helpful, informative and very friendly. I felt very welcome. Their knowledge of the Cairns tourist attractions, restaurants also very helpful. The pool was beautiful and my room was excellent. Large living area with a view of the pool. I hope to return again in 2017.

We found all the staff extremely helpful and obliging. Most importantly the accommodation was VERY CLEAN and we love being able to prepare our own food. The location of these apartments is so close to town centre without the hub bub!! THANKS GLENDA AND SHENOA

Staff were very friendly and the place was great. Was there for a couple of months and really looked after me. Definitely recommend staying there. Also close to most things in cairns. Very secure for you and vehicle. Close to airport and restaurants on esplanade. Walking distance.

Absolutely beautiful friendly people, could not ask for more wonderful help. The complex is fresh, clean and very central to Cairns. Would recommend to family and friends. Glenda and Chris are very friendly helpful managers, no request is too much trouble.

The location is good, about a 15 minute stroll down to the Esplanade for restaurants and nightlife. We always felt very safe walking back at night.

Friendly and helpful staff, well catered for apartment style room. Located within easy walk to CBD, lagoon, marina etc. Being on the ground floor (room 306) we could easily access our car through the back patio area. Couldn't have the water pressure too high in the shower as the shower curtain was sucked into the shower cubicle.
