Great Stay in Cairns!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Darrell’s apartment! It was exactly what we needed for our stay in Cairns. The size was perfect for the two of us. The location was great. It had everything we needed. We didn’t have any problems with check in or with anything in the apartment. We arrived earlier than check in and Darrell was kind enough to let us get in when we arrived. The only two things that we thought there would be was a dryer and a tub, there was neither. The description of the property lead us to believe that there was a washer AND a dryer. There was a washer but no dryer. We had to hang our clothes on the line on the balcony which worked out just fine. It would be good to make that clear in the description of the unit. There was also a picture of a tub that we were expecting. There wasn’t one and that was fine. Again, just make that clear. The view from the balcony was beautiful! We would definitely recommend the property to others!
Accuracy of statements regarding the property
This is a nice place with a great location. However, the statement that there is a Washer AND Dryer is not correct. There is NO Dryer, only a small drying rack on the balcony. If one wanted to dry clothes with a machine there is one available for a charge in the basement, which means that you have to haul wet clothes downstairs, pay for the drying and stay with the drying . That is not acceptable when it is stated that there is a DRYER in the unit. Also, there is no discussion that one could set off the fire alarm by taking a shower! The scare factor that the fire alarm could go off at any time if there was a bit of fog or heat in the unit is very upsetting. There is no ventilation at all except when the balcony doors are open. No vent in the bathroom no vent in the kitchen. The sofa is extremely uncomfortable to sit on and watch TV. The view is terribly marred by the huge Ferris Wheel on the beach which has extremely bright lights till late at night, which shine directly into the unit even through the shutter drapes. Overall a good place to stay but with some issues, especially the NO dryer and the fire alarm.
Thanks for your input. I have amended the information about the pay dryer on Level 1. The information about fire alarm safety is drawn to guests' attention in the House Rules book as well as signage on the bathroom door. There is ventilation in the bathroom, and ceiling fans and an airconditioner in the main room and bedroom. The Ferris Wheel is a community attraction, but I believe that it is temporarily housed on the Esplanade opposite our building. Thank you for your input and I will pay attention to the points you have raised with future guests.
Perfect, quiet, tropical get-away
Staying here was truly wonderful! The place was very clean and tidy. Very secure building- needing your key for the elevator and any night-time entry into the building. Central location for marina, large grocery store, restaurants.
We enjoyed the location and the VRBO very much. You could walk out of the VRBO and everything was right there to enjoy. The VRBO was clean, quite and set up very nicely. We enjoyed sitting on the deck and having wine in the evening. We were right across from Promenade and the Ferris Wheel.
Awesome view and perfect location!
Loved Darrell’s apartment! It had the best views and is a great location! We had lots of questions since this was our first stop in Australia and we appreciate that Darrell was happy to answer them! The apartment was very clean and was well equipped...coffee, spices, oils, linens, etc. The apartment was very secure! It was great having a long walk path along the ocean just steps away. We are loving Australia...The Great Barrier Reef is amazing! Thank you for everything!
Glad you had a great time, Terrie, and glad you are enjoying Australia. All the best for your onward journey and welcome back to the Tropical North next time you are tempted:))
Lovely apartment, very clean and well equipped. This was our third stay here and hope to visit again in future. Thank you!
