About the property

2 bedroom apartment on hill overlooking Cairns.

PLEASE NOTE BEFORE YOU BOOK: [1]-NO SAME DAY REQUESTS. Due to planning and cleaning requirements we do not accept bookings within 24 hours; [2]-MINIMUM STAY IS 2 NIGHTS and maximum is 14 nights; [3]-THERE IS NO SMOKING ALLOWED ANYWHERE ON OUR PROPERTY.

You will have the entire first floor, a fully self-contained 2 bedroom apartment, all to yourself. Our home is 18 minutes from the airport, and 15 minutes from the city centre and Great Barrier Reef ferry terminal. You’ll love it because of the gorgeous views of Cairns and the ultra quiet location (apart from the bird life, particularly the sulphur crested galahs and the kookaburras). The apartment is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travellers, and families (with kids).

Mooroobool is a quiet, friendly and central suburb of Cairns. We are 7.9kms (15mins by car) from the main post office in the CBD, so it is recommended you have your own transport when you stay at The Apartment. The Stocklands shopping centre is only 5 minutes away. The Botanic Gardens are only 10 minutes away. There are many restaurants and take-away outlets just down the road, or use the excellent kitchen in the apartment to make your own meals.

We live on the top floor and you probably won't know we are here unless you come looking, so private is The Apartment. We are situated in the hills with sweeping views of Cairns and Trinity Inlet. The mountains and bushlands make for a spectacular backdrop. You have 2 bedrooms with a queen bed in each room, access to the pool and your own private courtyard. The kitchen includes a two plate induction cooktop, a dual microwave/convection oven, a set of pots, pans and utensils, plus enough crockery, cutlery and glassware for a group of four. It's not a gourmet kitchen, but most people who use it have found it meets their holiday/business travel needs.

We are perched on a hill which means the driveway is steepish (but fun!) There is a garage space for your vehicle. The pool is available for guest use from 8am to 6pm.

Access is via keypad into front door and then the same code into the apartment keypad.

Relaxing Apartment with Great Views.

  • 5 of 5

The Apartment was very clean with easy access to many amenities. Many beautiful birds in the area with interesting songs.

Cairns is amazing and so is the surrounding area.

We had a great stay and it was nice to have a pool to use. There are 2 nice bedrooms.

The owners offered us good information and were very helpful with suggestions. There were many pamphlets available. They also made us and amazing meal for Nick’s Birthday which we much appreciated. The owners are very interesting people and we were happy to get to know them.

The Apartment was very clean with amazing tile floors and a relaxing tub and Shower.

We would highly recommend this property.

We enjoyed hiking, snorkeling on the Great Barrier Reef, and seeing a Cassowary in the Daintree Forest. We saw the Cathedral and the Curtain Fig Trees that are also amazing!
