Host Info

Host Review Score 8.8

North Cove Waterfront Suites offer fully self-contained apartments, giving guests the freedom and independence of being able to cook for themselves. Our spacious apartments cater well for couples, families and groups alike. Located at the quieter end of the Esplanade, guests can enjoy the tranquility of tropical North Queensland, without being too far out of town.

Minh and I moved to Cairns from Western Australia in early 2014 to manage North Cove. We enjoy the warm weather and love to keep busy with all the outdoor activities that Cairns provides. We never get sick of the reef or rain forest and are incredibly grateful to be living in such a beautiful place.

Approximately 2km from the city centre, North Cove is ideally located and is within walking distance of a number of Cairns' icons including Muddy's Playground, The Lagoon, Cairns Botanical Gardens, Tobruk Swimming Pool, hockey and soccer fields, beach volley and tennis courts, Cairns Base Hospital as well as the Cairns Private Hospital. North Cove is a popular location for sporting teams due to its close vicinity of a number of sporting and recreation facilities, and is a cost effective and comfortable accommodation option for those looking for a little more independence.
