“Fantastic Place and Hosts”

“These apartments are just the job, they are clean, spacious and positioned just right for a few minutes walk into the esplanade and the lagoon.The new managers are friendly and helpful and are a credit to the these apartments.

The rooms have everything you need including air con and free wi-fi which nobody can seem to do without these days. Well done Heinrich and Liying.”

“Family Holiday”

“We stayed at the City Sider for one week as a family of 2 adults 2 kids and we absolutely would recommend it to everyone!

Clean, easy walk to town centre and so so friendly and helpful with booking tours, answering questions and helping to book a car.

The apartments are well stocked and is the perfect home away from home. We love this place and look forward to another visit! Thank you Heinrich and Liying!”


“We stayed in a 2br apartment with 2 adults and 2 kids (7,11). We were impressed with how clean the room was. Our balcony overlooked well maintained gardens away from noisy busy roads. The resort is not on a busy road but is just 15 min walk to the supermarket in a large shopping complex.

A nice cafe is just 2 minute walk away. Our room had a well appointed kitchen to cook any meal which helps keep costs down on holidays. The washing machine and dryer were handy as well. Refrigerated air conditioners were in all bedrooms and the living area making it very comfortable on hot humid days and easy to sleep at nights.

The managers were very friendly and helpful with lots of info on local tours and activities.
Would stay here again if up that way again.”

“Very friendly. Will visit again”

“Stayed here for 3 nights.

The receptionist was very helpful and friendly. Our stay was amazing because of his help. He called a taxi for us. Helped to book tours for us…

Me and my friends will definitely come back to this place. It was a wonderful holiday because of their hospitality. Apartment was very clean.”

“Very nice place”

“Excellent place with very friendly, helpful management. Spacious apartment, well equipped kitchen (with dishwasher), good A/C, nice pool, good BBQ area.

Very clean and well managed. It is not in the immediate centre of town, so food shopping requires 15 mins of walking one way. Also, the Kuranda train provides the morning alarm clock, which I thought was just fine.

I thought it was well worth the price and we will definitely stay again if we return to Cairns.”
