Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • My wife and I had a great experience with Darrell during our recent stay! Even though we weren't able to meet in person, Darrell had everything planned for our arrival and was flexible with our times to arrive and depart. The location is great as you will never need to pay for a taxi or public transportation during your time in Cairns as everything is within walking distance (restaurants, coffee, pubs and most importantly, the Coral Sea!). Would definitely stay here again should we make our way back across the Pacific!

  • Really great location- right in the middle of everything. Darrell's guide of what to do in & around Cairns was excellent. The apartment is also well furnished. Be aware though that if you do not have your air conditioning on whilst someone below you has there's on quite high, you will get condensation on the floor!
    The staff were very helpful even though this was a private let with Darrell & I would be glad to stay here again.

  • 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.

    February 2014
  • 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.

    January 2014
  • 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.
