Darrell's place was fantastic. Superb location with everything within walking distance. While we didn't get to meet Darrell, he was great in terms of communication and getting right back to us about anything. Darrell sent a bunch of suggestions for our time there which was greatly appreciated. He's clearly an experienced host. Check-in and check-out was very easy. The view from the balcony is awesome. Would definitely highly recommend and would stay there again on a return visit.
Darrell's place had everything we needed to feel comfortable, plus, above all, a great location right by the beach. Thanks! We had a great time.
Though we did not get to meet Darrell, he was still an extremely helpful host! Very easy to reach if there were any issues (if any) or questions and full of wonderful suggestions for Cairns. The apartment itself was very spacious, comfortable, clean, and in an extremely convenient location--overlooking the esplanade pool, lagoon, and a few steps away from several coffee shops, restaurants, and information centers! Highly recommended!
Fantastic apartment in an amazing location. Could not be happier. Darrell accommodated us last minute and had everything arranged for us even though we were unable to communicate during our travel... much appreciated and highly recommend.
A truly fantastic apartment! Had everything as described - great view, air conditioning, close to transport, shops and pick-up locations for tours to name a few of the perks. It was clean and had a lovely big shower (though we didn't dare take a spa without the curtains drawn!), so it was great for relaxing in on our holiday. Would definitely recommend this apartment, as we had a wonderful time and Darrell's helpfulness made the whole experience better.
Darrell's apartment was perfect for our stay! it's a lovely place smack dab in the center of town. easy access to everything in Cairns and the surrounding areas. easy to communicate with - overall great experience. highly recommend.
Even though we never officially meet Darrell, he was a wonderful host, and his apartment was amazing! It had all the great views he said that the would be, and it was super close to everything that we wanted! We definitely recommend Darrell's apartment, it was comfy and quiet, and we would definitely stay there again!
Darrell's apartment is exactly as pictured. It was a very comfortable location, easy access to shops, the lagoon and car parking was no problem. It was a real advantage to have my own kitchen, and the kitchen had enough pots, pans, plates etc for everyone. To my delight there was even a jaffle (toastie toastie) machine.
The balcony was nice to gaze from, I did not have any problems with noise. I would say there is far less noise than being in a standard hotel.
Darrell was a very good host, punctual in his responses and went out of his way to help me. The apartment staff were very friendly and checking in and out was a trouble free. I would highly recommend Darrell's apartment.
Hi, we had a great holiday in Cairns and one the reason was Darrell's place, where we spend one week. The location of the flat could not have been better, in the middle of everything in Cairns; near all shoppings, restaurants and the harbour. Apartment was good and clean, outdoor area in 2 th floor was nice; swimming pool and bbq places. One useful thing was, that you could see outdoor camera in TV screen (channel 1). We left our rent car so, that we could check is there any left in the morning :-) It was a good information of "what to do in Cairns", which Darrell sent us before our trip and all other information of the flat.
We visit in the Great Barrier Reef, drove almost 1600 km along the coast and inland, visited many beaches and falls. So in all, a good holiday :-)
One bad thing there was... Cairns is too far from our home from Finland, (we travel total 40 hours back to home). We want to go back, mayby some day :-)
with kind greetings, Jouko
I had a great time at Darrell's apartment! It was clean and tidy and so close to everything in Cairns! Darrell provided a great list of things to do whilst I was in Cairns, it was unfortunate that I couldn't do them all because I was studying at the time. The apartment was a great base for the 2 weeks I spent in Cairns and I will definitely consider coming back next time I am up north.
