big room, but feels old and got itchy from the sofa

Had the family stay here. The price was reasonable for a two bedroom two bath apartment. The interior looked and felt old. Nice touch with cable tv, but we got itchy from sitting on the sofa. Looks like it was cleaned for many many years. Would look at booking another place. Also was quite a fair distance from city centre, fortunately had the car

well equipped space

181 is about 20 mins foreshore walk to Cairns centre. Close enough but not too close. Big rooms. Well equipped and pleasant to be in, with balconies. In our case, ground floor, the balconies were sitting areas in the tropical garden. Pleasant enough and could see the sea through the trees, but would have preferred to be higher up with an uninterrupted in-your-face view. Helpful at reception but this is very much self-catering, which we prefer. Secure free car park also a bonus. Good pub and two restaurants nearby but having a car helped for groceries and other eating out as well as for exploring.

Great weekender

Great 2 bedroom apt for the family or extended family. Nice walk into the busy area and great to be far enough away from the noice.
