Well first of all there is nothing wrong with the property itself it is the location of the property that is the problem .Directly across the road is a large council playground and a Cafe called Muddy’s , well from about 7am to 7pm everyday all you hear if you have the windows or sliding door open is screaming kids , delivery trucks , and cars coming and going. The only way we could get any peace and quite was to shut all the doors and windows. Would not recommend to anyone who wants some peace and quiet.

Hi Alan, Thank you for your review. We're glad that you enjoyed the property. It is unfortunate that the location can be noisy at times due to the children playing across the road at the playground, especially during school holidays when you visited. It is unfortunately out of our control and within Council bounds. Thank you Waters Edge

The swim out apartment was amazing. Close to Muddys playground and a lovely walk to the shops. The only thing we didn’t like was that the bbq area was not near the pool instead it was out the back where it was hard to get to.

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.
