The space
The resort is a beautiful taste of tropical living, and Vicki's non-smoking apartment is one of the very best, and very clean in the resort. It's fully modernised with so many extra details taken care of so that you can just check in and relax. Our apartment facilities are very clean and well maintained for your comfort and convenience, and everything is set up to make your stay hassle-free and enjoyable.

This large-sized apartment also provides more space, more facilities, a fully-equipped kitchen, plus free high-speed wifi, super-comfortable lounges, large-screen TV, work desk if you need it, and your own large private balcony when you just want to enjoy the view.

We also offer free undercover car parking, with a reserved parking space for you guaranteed.

The apartment is suitable for short or longer-terms stays, and is popular for vacations, business visitors, or even just as a convenient end-of-holiday departure point for travellers.

"Immaculate and extremely well equipped"
"Sparkling clean, very modern and has all the amenities that you need"

Only a small handful of apartments in the entire Lakes Resort surround the resort's finest pool. Vicki's place is one of them. So the view from this apartment is exceptional and exclusive. Great for couples, singles or friends travelling together. Also good for families with older children aged five and up (sorry, not suitable for small children or infants as we don't have cots, high chairs, change tables etc). We also have quality white leather furniture, glass tables and vases that may not be suitable for small children.

Business professionals also find it both convenient as a base to stay when in Cairns, and a place to relax at the end of the working day. Wifi charging ports and a work desk help you stay productive when you need to be. The city business district is only a few minutes away.

The bedrooms:

"Very comfortable beds - very clean throughout"

The bedrooms have a configuration of one Queen bed and two single beds. Maximum occupancy is four people.

Both bedrooms have large built-in wardrobes with plenty of space and clothes hangers for longer-term stays, plus drawers for storage of your smaller items. A portable luggage stand is in each room for your suitcase if needed.

You also have air conditioning and ceiling fans in both bedrooms.

The apartment beds are new and chosen for comfort, the linen is new, clean and crisp.

The bathroom:

Features dual his-and-hers basins, and a dual shower with twin shower heads. The toilet is in a separate room.

The living space:

"It's modern, beautifully styled, and sparkling clean"
"It is a beautiful apartment with a superb view. One of the nicest places I have stayed in. It is so much bigger than a hotel room"

Features and facilities here include 60-inch flatscreen TV, premium Netflix, super comfortable leather couches, and a serene fish aquarium, so peaceful and relaxing,

The kitchen includes a very quiet Miele dishwasher, double sinks, microwave, toaster, electric jug and coffee-making facilities, water jug in fridge with filter, pots, pans, dining ware, cups, glassware, cutlery and a range of other utensils are all provided for your use during your stay.

The large refrigerator is great for longer-term stays, or just for the convenience of not having your food wedged into a tiny bar fridge.

Washing and laundry:

We don't charge for a laundry service, instead there's a fully-equipped laundry in the apartment so you have the convenience of washing clothes whenever you need to. Includes washing machine and dryer.

Dining:

The glass-topped dining table has seating for four people with high back comfortable white leather chairs.

Parking:

This apartment also offers secure garage parking at no extra charge. You get one of the best spaces in the garage, so convenient to your apartment. You will be provided with a vehicle pass for the resort's electronic front security gates, and a remote control for the apartment building's garage door.

Some more of our recent guests say:
* "We loved Vicki's place and felt very comfortable. It was beautiful, perfectly clean and gorgeously decorated. We wish we were back there in the sunshine, at their beautiful pool, right now."
* "The photos are spot on and the couple were lovely hosts. The apartment was immaculate but still felt very homey. It had everything we needed/wanted and we wouldn’t hesitate to stay there again."
* "We stayed at Vicki’s apartment for the last part of our Queensland adventure and couldn’t fault it! Everything from the personal touches, to amazing facilities in and outside of the apartment. Would recommend to ANYONE!"

Getting around and things to do:

The apartment is situated next to the beautiful botanic gardens precinct, so there's loads of walking trails and natural beauty with the Centenary Lakes, mangrove boardwalks and rainforest canopy, only a few minutes' walk away.

A mini-market, Subway takeaway, GP medical centre, pharmacy, post office and other shops and cafes are all within a comfortable five-minute walk from your apartment.

Those looking for some fitness or hiking opportunities can check out the Red Arrow and Blue Arrow trails, which head up the nearby hills for some spectacular views over the city and coastline. Super-popular with the locals and for a rainforest experience. It's mainly for the fit and the adventurous, but so worth it with views and photo opportunities most people will never experience.

** If you have a look at the map listed with our photos, you'll see the apartment is also only 7-10 blocks from the city centre. It's an enjoyable walk on a cool day, and it's only five to six minutes by car.

Public buses heading to the city also depart from outside the Lakes Resort front gates and also on nearby Sheridan Street. Of course, taxi and Uber are also readily available.

Cairns is also gateway to the world renown Great Barrier Reef, a tropical coral paradise so large and so spectacular that it is visible from space, The Daintree rainforest also surrounds you, for one of the most remote yet naturally beautiful experiences on earth.

At the end of your day you get to come back to your apartment at Vicki's place and just relax on the balcony.

Secure your preferred dates for this apartment. Why not do it now, while it's fresh on your mind. Book now.

Guest access
You will have exclusive use of the entire apartment with free use of 4 pools, resort facilities, resort cafe on-site, free reserved undercover carpark, free wi-fi and premium Netflix with big-screen TV.

Other things to note
Right from beginning when we decided to rent our apartment though airbnb, we have held our cleaning standards high. We steam mop the floors rather than use a daily mop, we wash all towels and linen in very hot water at 95 degrees. Basically we pride ourselves on the cleanliness of this apartment.

* Great location in a stylish tropical resort
* Modern and spacious
* Overlooks beautiful beach pool and gardens
* Free car park, wifi + Netflix!

ONE OF THE BEST LOCATIONS IN CAIRNS

"Close to town and has great amenities on site with great pools. Also close to public transport"
"One of the nicest places I have stayed in. It is very convenient to the city and airport as well"
"It's next to the Botanical Gardens, and is a quick and easy drive to the CBD. Really nice play to stay! Highly recommended."

The apartment is convenient for people on business, and also longer-term stays. This apartment is not only beautiful, well-appointed and user-friendly, it is located surprisingly close to the city.

Five minutes' drive to the airport, five minutes to downtown means that you can get the most enjoyment and value out of your time here.

The Lakes Resort is in a tranquil, beautiful neighbourhood, nestled near the foothills of North Cairns.

You have the authentic tropical vibe on your doorstep, with lots of palm trees, gardens and nearby walking trails. And yet, if you do want to head into the city it's just 7-10 blocks to downtown (which is only about 3km). That's an easy five-minute drive or taxi ride.

Unless you're planning to drive around the wider Cairns region, or you're here on business, you probably won't need a car to get around. However, if you do bring a car, we guarantee you a super-convenient undercover carpark for your exclusive use, free of charge.

Getting food and supplies:

If you're only here for a couple of days, you'll probably be eating out or getting take-away. The apartment is near a fast-food outlets such as Subway, pizza, fish and chips etc nearby. Cafe takeaways are also available at nearby Edge Hill. Cairns also has Uber Eats, and they will deliver right to the resort.

If you're staying here for a few days or longer, the large supermarkets and shopping centres are only a few minutes' away in a taxi, so it's easy to load up with supplies and bring them back to the apartment (we deliberately provide a family-sized fridge in the kitchen so you have plenty of room for your food, snacks and drinks).

Laid-back, fun and family friendly:

From the resort it's easy walking distance to the Flecker botanical gardens. Explore the mangrove board walks. Pleasant walking paths and a taste of tropical jungle, while still only being minutes from anywhere else you might want to go and transport to get you there.

Whatever your reason for visiting Cairns, once you stay at Vicki's apartment you will find it difficult to go back to a standard hotel room ever again.

Waiting for you here is a full-sized suite, modern and spacious, way bigger than a standard hotel room, and at a lower price.

Book now and secure your preferred dates. Why not do it now while it's fresh on your mind.
