“Great place for families”
Reviewed 16 March 2012

We stayed here in November 2011, 3 adults and 2 kids. The rooms are spacious and clean and have a full kitchen if u want to cook. The air conditioning works well and the pool is very enjoyable. Location is good, a quick 2 min walk to a small supermarket or 5 mins to a great pub. The area is quiet and the beds are comfy. The owners, Wayne and his young family are fantastic hosts and were very helpful with choosing tours, getting hire cars etc. and any other queries we had. Look forward to staying here again!

I found the holiday apartments to be great value for our family. The staff were helpful and it was great being able to relax around the swimming pool. The apartment is two bedrooms with everything needed to prepare food. This allowed us to prepare our own meals and make further savings. It is also in walking distance to take away food outlets and a restaurant. The room was clean and secure and there is some undercover parking that we took advantage of.

We booked 2 units and shared it amongst the 6 of us for a few nights. It was decent and neat. A self-sufficient apartment so there was no problem with cooking and laundry. There were also broom and mop. They come in handy for those who stay long enough.

The apartment is also within easy access to the city and the airport. With the location, it is quiet most of the time. There are sufficient parking bays within the compound. So parking is not an issue and the gate is closed at night. A little sense of security. :)

A little down side was the bed we had. The few of us thought they were a little bit soft.

Room Tip: It's a walk-up apartment. So, if you have a lot of things to carry or if you have walking diffic...

My family and I were very impressed with our 2 bedroom apartment at Tradewinds McLeod. This apartment was the best accommodation that we had stayed in on our family road trip around Australia. The apartment was very clean, modern and comfortable, it really felt like we were at home. I slept like a baby for the first time in a week, the beds were perfect. The shower is the first thing that I normally whinge about on holidays but it was extremely clean as was the rest of the modern bathroom The shower was also hot with plenty of water pressure and I didn't have to chase a few droplets around, I've never felt so relaxed. I was also amazed at the price, this is the best value for money that anyone could ask for. I will be recommending this place to all my family and friends and on my return to Cairns I will definately be back to stay at Tradewinds McLeod and that is a promise !!!

Room Tip: Ask for refurbished room as they are refurbishing at the moment one by one.

Stayed in a two bedroom apartment for three nights with husband and three children aged 5, 8 and 9. We were told that we had the worst (yes worst) apartment and there were apologies from management, but when we opened the apartment door - it was fine, comfortable, roomy with everything we needed. OK it was a bit outdated (we did get a great $ deal though) - it was really roomy with a good modern tv, great recliner couch (loved the couch) and plenty of room for us all. It had a washing machine and dryer, microwave, oven and new dishwasher. It was quiet, close to the esplande and we walked into town to do the lagoon pool, muddie's playground and night market (which were great). Really enjoyed this place. The pool was good. Reception were great in helping us book our Karunda scenic railway and skyrail adventure. Would I stay here again - you bet I would - a really great place ;-)
