Our family stayed at Esprit Villas in Palm Cove. The house was spacious, well equipped and exceptionally clean. Loved the outdoor area and pool. Very relaxing family holiday. The team at Cairns Coast Holidays booked all our tours – Kuranda/Skyrail and Outer Reef Cruise – had a fabulous time. Was great to receive local feedback on great tour options available during our stay. Thank you, we’ll be back!

Esprit Luxury Villas

Beautiful home with stunning outlook!

Loved the style of the home and the wonderful outlook from the middle level/main living areas. Plenty of space, there were only four of us but would have been fun to share with extended family or friends – plenty of room for all with different lounge and living areas on each level if you wanted space. The location was good – in a quiet suburb south of Palm Cove. Would have been nice to have been walking distance to Palm Cove restaurants, but you sacrifice that proximity for the lovely peace and quiet of Clifton Beach. It's really only a 5 min car ride (and I believe they have Uber as well  –  we didn't use this), the nights we didn't cook ourselves we got takeaway anyway as you just can't beat the outlook on the deck over the water. Better than most restaurants in the area! Wonderful facilities  –  especially in the kitchen. Every utensil and appliance was available, we even loved the board games and yoga mats. Thanks for a great stay!

Decked Out Holiday Home

Paradise in Palm Cove. Pool area is excellent and the kid pool was perfect for our kids (aged under 5). Our room was beautiful. Great size and layout. Will definitely be back.

Sea Temple Private Apartments

Lovely homey and spacious apartment right on the amazing lagoon pool. We will book again.

This apartment right on the stunning lagoon pool was just what we wanted – many little details made it feel like home, from the range of beautiful teas supplied, to candles on outdoor tables and kids beach toys left on the veranda. It was great having a useful kitchen – everyday utensils and supplies made a real difference to the ease of our stay. Perfect location, easy access, undercover carpark and friendly booking and early check-in/late check-out.
