Check-in at Ray White was easy and included some nice discount coupons, strip map, and wireless internet passwords. The drive to the apartments was only a short 3-4 kms away, closer to Trinity Beach.
The apartment had received new carpet, table and chairs and a toaster. The linoleum in the main is also newer. The flat screen TV is newer and had a USB port so we could watch movies off of our portable hard drive we brought with us. The little kitchen has a stove and all pots, pans, and dishes you would need for a holiday away. Your stay comes with a ONE NIGHT allocation of soaps for showering and dishwashing. So stop by Coles at Smithfield, get some groceries and soap for your stay. It'll be cheaper than the Night Owl in Trinity Beach.
The apartment has a washer and dryer, so get some washer soap as well! It was nice to be able to wash and dry our clothes during a vacation. There was a small leak in the washroom across the floor to the drain. We informed them about it and they claimed to have known about it prior. Unfortunately, there were no attempts for it to be fixed. Really made my wife nervous that the children would slip and fall. We are so thankful that we didn't have any accidents.
The bedrooms were nicely sized, and each had a pullout bed for additional guests (if needed). The pillows are a very flat. If you like extra fluff in your pillow, then better bring your own. Furniture is a bit rough (missing drawer pulls), hopefully it will be the next thing on their list to be updated.
The apartment is a block away from the beach and esplanade. The kids enjoyed walking up to get ice cream. There were people walking the esplanade both in the morning to exercise and the evening for dinner. A nice location.
The pool is nice, well maintained and the toys available for the kids is a nice touch. The outdoor kitchen is a good, clean area to prepare and enjoy an outside meal. If you are looking to do Cairns Holiday Tour Packages, the bus stop across the street is where the tour companies will pick you up. So enjoy a great location in a very good accommodation!
