About The Owner

I am a relationship manager with a large financial organisation and I am the lucky Nana of 4 gorgeous grand children and my favorite place on Earth is Palm Cove and its surrounds.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2009

Why The Owner chose Cairns

We holidayed in Tropical North Qld and absolutely loved it . I love the warm weather and the laid back relaxing attitude of the Northern Queenslanders and when I saw that my apartment was for sale I jumped at the chance of purchasing it. The absolutely gorgeous scenery stole my heart. I get a real kick out of the enjoyment that my guests and family get from staying at my apartment. Although they'll have to get in quick because when I retire I plan on spending much more time up there.

What makes this apartment unique

I love the peace and quiet of the resort, with its 4 pools you sometimes feel that you are the only one there. The beautiful mountain backdrop truly takes your breath away. it is only a short walk to the bustle of the foreshore and one of my favorite things to do is rise early and stoll down to the Palm Cove jetty and see the sun rise, then enjoy a latte,reading the local paper at one of the many places lining the foreshore.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much Janice for providing your wonderful apartment which was the highlight of a holiday filled with highlights! Palm Cove and the surrounds is gob smacking beautiful, you can have a holiday as relaxed as you like or one that is filled with activity every day. The Cairns Night Zoo was a great hit with us all, the Minjin Swing is not for the faint hearted and the trip to the Outer Reef a wonderful experience. Our family adored this apartment and did not want to leave. The resort was wonderful although the pools were a bit cold for me, not that it deterred the kids. Perhaps I'm just a bit of a wuss! We had friends that stayed in one of the resorts closer to the Esplanade and when they visited for an evening BBQ they were so envious of our accommodation and the beautiful quiet resort. We have stayed in many resorts and hotels over the years and this would have to be one of the best - our second time here. Once again, it was just the little touches, the DVD library, the TV/DVD for the kids in their own bedroom, the wonderful coffee machine, it was a great experience and the 13 nights were not long enough - we will be back.

Home away from Home!!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was I a great location with lovely tropical surroundings. The furnishings and little personal touches like DVDs, iPod speaker, washing powder etc made all the difference! The bed in the master bedroom was extremely comfortable and usually this is never the case when you stay somewhere, you always miss your bed at home...well not here and that was a first for me!! It is a very spacious apartment and very well ventilated which didn't require the constant use of an air conditioner and allowed you to enjoy the climate while still staying cool...I have already highly reccomended this rental property to several people and we will be back for sure.

My wife and I were looking for a short break from a working trip to Sydney from the USA. This apartment was fantastic - in a super quiet location in Palm Cove, and within easy reach of all the local sights! The apartment itself was immaculately clean and organized for our arrival, we simply picked up the key at the front desk of Mango Lagoon. The photos on the website show the property well. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you might need and we were pleasantly surprised by the size of the apartment. There is a very efficient, quiet AC unit in both the bedroom and the living room, but with the breeze wafting through we didn't need to use it that much. A washer/dryer in the master bathroom was essential since we were on a 3 week trip. Palm Cove is well located for exploring Port Douglas, the Great Barrier Reef and Kuranda. We took the chance to visit all three. Internet reception was a little patchy in the apartment itself, but if its absolutely essential there is a good strong signal available in the entrance area to Mango Lagoon, just about 50 yards away. We would absolutely stay here again - it exceeded our expectations in almost every way!

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This is a very lovely ground floor apartment, spacious, extremely clean and well equipped. It is in a great setting, with colourfull well stocked gardens amongst clean inviting swimming pools. It was a joy to stay here.

Staff on reception arranged our barrier reef trip. They have a whole library of information for potential trips and tours. Booking the accomodation was a breeze, arranged with Janet the owner, who was amazing in helping us resolve a personal issue.

This is a real gem of a place, and comes highly recommended.

This is a beautiful apartment in a lovely resort. There’s excellent pool facilities at the resort. Janice, the host, does a wonderful job with little extras (e.g. swimming toys for kids, bucket and spade, plenty of holiday essentials that you usually have to buy and then throw away – washing liquid, powder etc). There’s a huge DVD library to choose from…not that we had much time for TV. If you’ve never been to this part of the world before (as I hadn’t until my stay) it’s absolutely stunning. Amazing beaches right next to beautiful mountains and rainforests.

My son (almost 3) had a brilliant time. The only downside was that he was terribly upset that we had to leave.

I couldn’t recommend this enough. We all had a terrific holiday and we will be back!

We love the privacy while enjoying close proximity to the beach, resort pools, and local shops. Part of it was that it was end of travel season and most people have flown back home. Anyway, we loved it!
