Having stayed at Getaway on Grafton before I found it quite comfortable & not too far from the esplanade. The property is a walk up. They have a heated pool to 30c, so nice in their winter months! Aislinn on the front desk is very friendly and helpful. Thanks
Works for families
We stayed in one of the two bedroom apartments and we were happy with our stay. The rooms, furniture and fittings are all modern and the decore was nice. The beds were comfortable and you get a washer and dryer to use in your room. Dryer was a bit more noisy than we would have liked but it was only on for an hour. There is ample parking and there is a pool. After hours check in was easy and check out was equally easy. You can walk to the esplanade from here but wear comfy shoes. Taxi will be 10-15 each way.
Has everything that you need for a fair price
We found this place by chance since other places were booked. The services provided by the apartment and its location is perfect for the price tab which is really hard to beat. 10 mins walk from the boardwalk and downtown cairns. Kevin was very helpful on anything we asked at any point of the day. We were kind of in a limbo for a day and he set us up with Jill (wonderful local) who took us around to some cool places. The wifi is a little weak but that can be a blessing on a holiday. A hearty thanks to Kevin and staff.
Very Friendly Service
We had an excellent holiday for 7 nights in the apartment number 8. It was very spacious being on 2 storeys. The facilities were very good and you had everything you needed to cater for yourself if you wished, including good laundry facilities. The staff were extremely helpful and gave great advice on the best excursions to do and they even booked them for you! Just be aware that there are no lifts, so you do have to lug your suitcases up a flight or two of stairs! Not a problem if you have a teenage son on hand! If staying for a week, definitely hire a car and get out into the countryside, as there is so much more to around Cairns than the beach and the reef. However a trip to the reef is a must and the 'Down Under' tour was great! The location of the apartment was good, being a 15 min walk to the centre of town. Would definitely recommend and stay there again in the future!
The apartments are so well appointed, clean tidy and very central, we had a wonderful time! We booked all our tours at Getaway, Kevin & Linda was really helpful. Thank you very much
Fantastic accomodation just a short walk from the main city centre. We found the area quiet and were not disturbed by any noise from the nearby hostel.
Highly recommended for both couples and families.
The rooms are clean and spacious with all the amenities you need. Me and my partner stayed in the family apartment and were really impressed with everything.
The staff are friendly and extremely helpful. The manager Kevin, and Aislinn, have a wealth of knowledge about the area and tour operators and gave superb recommendations for day trips.
I thought it was great value for money and I'd happily stay here again.
Awesome, Awesome Awesome
Awesome, awesome awesome.
Our room was awesome, the location was awesome, the manager Kevin and the other young lady running the place are awesome.
My partner and I came to Cairns recently with not much of a plan. The staff there recommended heaps of great activities.
We had a great time.
Thanks so much for your help in booking our tours. We had a wonderful, memorable time!
We'll be recommending Getaway to all our friends!
Thanks so much, Sharon, Mike and Parker
