Our view faced a toilet block

Pros: It was spacious and clean with a daily service which was excellent.
We booked a 3 bedroom swim out apartment 4 months prior to arrival. Despite the building being near empty when we arrived they stuck us in the apartment which faced the toilet block of Muddy Creek Cafe. This side was also next to a cheap and noisy motel. Added to that because it was on the ground level, there was also an issue with security, because the children’s bedrooms could easily have been reached from the Abbott street side through a patio entry. Obviously the managing agents did not want repeat business from us, nor will they get it.

Thank you for your feedback Emma. We are glad you found your apartment clean and spacious. Yes all of our swim out apartments which you booked are on ground level, next to the swimming pool. There is a children's playground across the road and buildings either side of ours. If you do change your mind and return to stay with us and seeking views above the ground level park, we would suggest you book a higher room instead of the swim out. We do hope you enjoyed the beautiful surrounds of Cairns and had a fabulous holiday..

Home away from home

Lovely place to stay! Convenient location close to everything. Recommend swim out if you have children, we enjoyed just being able to watch them whilst relaxing. Will stay again if visiting Cairns!

Amazing

It was our first time visiting Cairns and we absolutely loved it! A huge part of what made this trip so enjoyable were the staff at Waters Edge Apartments. They were extremely helpful when booking tours and really welcoming. The Apartments were amazing, very clean, well equipped with everything you need and the pool was beautiful. I highly recommend staying here if you come to Cairns, the Apartments are in the perfect location too! You won't be disappointed.

Great apartment, lovely and helpful management.

Pros: Everything!
Cons: Noisy kids riding scooters up and down the hall at 7 am, but management have signs everywhere about noise. This is more about the parents.
Location: Cairns Esplanade. Lagoon for swimming. Great kids park across the road.Walking paths and board walk. Restaraunts galore. Shopping. Marina to the reef.
Clean, beautifully equiped apartment. Modern, close to everything on the esplanade in Cairns. Management were great, really helpful. Pool was beautiful. Really spacious. Cairns was wonderful and this apartment made our holiday even better. Hard to leave it behind.
