We are located on the northern end of the fabulous Cairns Esplanade. We are a short stroll from the restaurants and shops but far enough away to avoid the crowds and noise. We are a small family owned business that prides itself on a more relaxed, personnel approach to our guests. Testament to that approach is the high number of repeat guests we enjoy welcoming back to stay with us.

Managers, Craig and Tania are happy to share their local knowledge and experience to make certain your stay at Watersedge is enjoyable. Craig and Tania provide a personalised service catering to your individual requirements and will do everything to ensure your holiday is relaxing and memorable.
