Great staff a view negatives

Kirsteen R | 7th July 2024

Extremely attentive staff Very clean room , quiet, nice view , well equipped kitchen. Negatives - pillows very poor but resolved quickly A/ C and fan issues - AC fixed swiftly The pool is freezing which impacts the enjoyment of your stay . The company is very good to deal with by phone and email would definitely book another apartment with them .

Perfect Comfort and Exceptional Service:

Ryan | 13th November 2023

Antje’s AirBnB is super comfortable and matches the description exactly, the bed was super soft! I locked my keys in my room at a ridiculous hour of the night and Antje was super helpful and quick to respond on how to troubleshoot that. Thanks for an awesome stay Antje if I come back I won’t look any further than your property ❤️

Incredible location.

Adelle | 21st August 2023

Great location and room

Henry C | 17th April 2023

The room was very nicely presented, love the room fragrance (very nice smell) and appreciated with all the small touches (the choice of bathroom toiletries etc.) We’ve stayed at the Drift previously, we come here once a year for the last 4 years. Always love the pool and so close to cafe/restaurants.

About the area.

Far North Queensland is a destination within itself, and Palm Cove is the perfect outpost to base yourself to explore all that it has to offer. An easy 25-minute drive from Cairns City, Palm Cove is one of the most loved resort beach towns, it’s bounded by the lush tropics of Macalister Range National Park, and its palm-fringed esplanade and patrolled swimming beach graces many a postcard. Combine this with boutique shopping and world-class dining, and you have one destination you will be in no rush to leave.
