Relax, unwind and rejuvenate at this Palm Cove resort-style stay. Situated footsteps from the sandy shores of Palm Beach, this two bedroom apartment is the hideaway for families or couples looking for a relaxing stay on the coast. Surrounded by lush sub-tropical greenery, this apartment offers two queen bedrooms, two bathrooms, two spacious balconies, a lagoon pool, shared gym and open plan living.

The space
Ideally located on Williams Esplanade, you’ll be surrounded by cafes, restaurants and a short walk to the Palm Cove Retreat Day Spa. Spend your days lazing on the loungers by the resort pool, pumping iron in the gym or soaking up the sun at Palm Beach, just across the road from your apartment.

A bright and airy open floor plan offers a cosy lounge area situated in front of a flat screen TV. Flowing onto the furnished, covered balcony overlooking the pool and tropical gardens. Sip on cocktails at happy hour or your morning cuppa at sunrise.

Make use of the equipped kitchen with everything you’ll need to whip up a quick meal, including a stove, microwave, kettle, toaster, fridge, sink and coffee machine. Gather at the four-seater dining table or make your way to one of the dozens of restaurants nearby for dinner.

Both bedrooms have a queen sized bed, blackout blinds, and direct access to a second balcony. A windowed wall connects the two bedrooms. Leave it open so you can keep an eye on the kiddos or close it off for privacy when staying with other couples.

The ensuite bathroom in the master offers a wall-to-wall mirrored vanity and bathtub/shower combo. The main bathroom has a step free shower and both a washing machine and dryer for added convenience.

Full resort facilities are yours to use, including a beautiful lagoon swimming pool, 12-seater spa, gym and BBQ area. Other amenities include air conditioning, lift access and free parking.

Where you’ll be

Palm Cove, Queensland, Australia

Just a 30 minute drive from Cairns Esplanade and City Centre one way, or Port Douglas in the other direction, Palm Cove is one of Cairns most beautiful and popular beaches. Palm Cove offers shops, a great variety of restaurants, cafes, takeaways and bars, plus the gorgeous beach and jetty. You can also swim at any of Cairns beaches as long as you stay within the swimming nets during stinger jellyfish season. Explore The Palm Cove Market on the first Sunday of the month (except in October when it coincides with the Reef Feast Event). Here you can purchase quality handmade products and enjoy family entertainment, food, and activities.

If you’re up for a drive, check out some other beautiful beaches in the area which aren’t far away – Ellis Beach, Clifton Beach, Kewarra Beach, Trinity Beach, Yorkeys Knob and then closer to the city – Holloways beach and Machan’s beach.

A 45 minute drive will take you to Kuranda Village – the village in the rain forest and definitely worth a visit. A quick 15 minute drive to Smithfield shopping centre, the major shopping centre for the beaches area, otherwise there’s another smaller shopping centre with a major supermarket in Clifton beach which is only 5 minutes away.
