Hi Meg, Brenda and Vanessa,

We recently stayed at Piermonde for the Amateurs.  We rented a 3 bedroom apartment and had great time!  

The apartment was clean and modern and the view over the Wharf to the mountains was amazing!

Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Kind regards,

Hi Brenda

We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay in Cairns.  I think this was our

8th or 9th visit.  The apartment was spot on.  It was large enough for our family plus also to have meals with our extended family from Cooktown so plenty of room.  Close enough to run to the supermarket, or walk to Muddy's for water play and coffee.  The staff were extremely helpful and I can't think of any improvements needed.

Your booking staff have also been very helpful and prompt and I wouldn't hesitate to use this booking agent again.

In regards to what we did while in Cairns, very little from a tourist point of view, as we have done most before.  We hired a car from Sugar Land Rentals and headed to Babinda Boulders for lunch (no swimming as it was rather cool), then an afternoon/evening visit to Paronella Park which we had been to before.

We also did a sunset cruise with Spirit of Cairns, great music for entertainment and I would recommend it to others as it was only $25 each.  One thing disappointing was that they didn't accept Companion card, as my husband is blind and other 'boating' companies did.    

We also did a trip out to Green Island so our girls could experience the reef.  That was great although the trip was very rough and we all got sick, however we snorkelled with two turtles, nemo and plenty of other creatures.  

The girls also enjoyed an afternoon at the Dome.  This works out very expensive and we should've got there earlier so they could've had more time to try different experiences.   Even with a 4 day pass it would've still cost $30 to get into the harness each time then the cost of each activity.

So our holiday was just what we needed. Plenty of R and R, happy kids and very pleasant surrounds.

thanks  Kathy

Hi Lisa and Brenda

Happy New Year to you both. I apologise that it has taken me so long to respond to your email. We had a great time in Cairns, but we are not fans of the humid weather. It rained heavily on the second day of our trip, around 3pm while returning from Port Douglas. We were going to visit Mossman Gorge that day but the rain prevented us from doing so. The rain continued for most of the following day, but after that it cleared up for the rest of our stay. The places we visited were Port Douglas, Barron Gorge, Lake Placid, Crystal Cascades, Kuranda and Palm Cove. On New Year's Day we took a two hour lunch cruise through swampland, but unfortunately the crocodiles did not make an appearance that day. We left it too late to book a cruise to Green Island and The Great Barrier Reef. We were very pleased with our apartment, and it was perfectly located within easy walking distance to the large shopping centre, the lagoon and esplanade, restaurants, etc. We had a lot of trouble obtaining a hire car, having rung every car hire company before we left Adelaide, and enquiring about availability at the 6 car hire counters at the Cairns airport the night we arrived. The day after we arrived we managed to get a small car for $145 a day, which we had for 5 days. It is entirely our fault for leaving it until the last minute, so we have learnt a lesson for our future holidays. Thank you for all your help.

Kind regards,

Hi Meg,

a) our impression of our holiday: beautifully furnished apartment and great ocean views at the Vision Apartments Cairns. Great location in Cairns. b) standards and satisfaction with service: fantastic service from FNQ apartments. I had a few questions regarding the accommodation before and after booking and the staff were only too happy to assist, not to mention very prompt in replying to queries and even followed up on weekends - great service.

Thanks again Regards,

Hi Meg,

Thank you for organising our accommodation in Cairns. The views from the unit were superb and the location was very central and worked well with the various locations we needed to attend for our conference itinerary. We had a fantastic time and when not at the conference we had a great time taking in the sites. We visited the Daintree for a crocodile cruise, dropped in for a swim at Mossman Gorge, went to Karanda on the train and back on the Skyrail and also visited Fitzroy Island for some wonderful snorkelling and of course spent some time at the Esplanade lagoon.

Hi to all,

The very helpful staff at FNQ Apartments, Would just like to give you a "totally awesome" feed back report. We were directed to you when the large house we had booked for our daughters wedding became unavailable. You went to work and within hours had secured us the perfect alternative at Waters Edge Apartments , right on the esplanade. We found everything easily accessible and very comfortable. The staff there were extremely helpful, efficient while still being unobtrusive. The wedding was wonderful and you all deserve some of the credit for our happiness! THANKYOU !! We will certainly use your services if we need to in the future.

Our warmest regards,

Laurel and Russell Jackman.

Hi Vanessa,

Thank you for the welcome home email. Sorry for the delay as I just got back to work today. We had a lovely holiday in Cairns, beautiful weather and everyone very helpful. Our apartment was amazing, we would definitely go back there. We did a few day trips to the Great Barrier Reef, Train and Sky rail, Table Lands, Port Douglas and Palm Cove, all were excellent. Our next visit we will stay longer as I feel there is so much more to do up there. The hardest thing was leaving and arriving back in Victoria to cold and wet conditions. Thank you for sending the voucher, hopefully I can use it later in the year. Please pass on our regards to everyone who assisted us with our stay. Thanks again we had an excellent time.

Kind Regards,

Hello and thank you for your help in securing our apartment for a week in May 2015.

Our visit to Cairns was to catch up with family whilst also visiting our son, his wife and our first grandchild in Townsville. We have family in Milla Milla and Earleville so staying in an apartment ourselves took any pressure off family. While we were in Cairns we did some touristy things like the sky rail cableway. Amazing!! We had driven, trained, bused and now the sky rail this visit. We are not strangers to Cairns, with family up here we visit maybe every 5 or so years. We have seen Cairns grow from a little fishing village to the tourism hub it is now. Thank you for arranging our stay at Park Regis Apartments, our only complaint was an air conditioner that continued to drip. The maintenance man after two attempts finally stopped the leak. The apartment was roomy with everything you need. Cutlery, pots and pans and crockery were plentiful. The staff were wonderful even down to the room attendants, everything was great.

Many thanks again,

Evelyn Wall
