Argosy On The Beach

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We stayed between 23rd to 30th Aug (7 nights) with 5 pp - 3 adults, 2 kids in unit 9 (2 bedroom unit) Great experience. - The place has huge balcony with ocean views (through tress), you can hear the waves all the time. - The street is very quiet (very few cars passing) - The building (and rooms) is aged but well maintained, with everything provided, dish washer/air con, all bowls/plates/ all types of cups, clothes hanger etc. - The room is very clean when we moved in, absolutely spotless. - Karen is very friendly and helpful, the check out time is 10, but she allowed us to stay till 11:15 since we have a late flight. - The beach, Clifton beach is beautiful, it is the same beach that links to Palm Cove beach, but not as commercialized. You can see and walk for 20min to the Palm Cove Jetty. It feels like a regular living area as fewer people and you see people walking dogs and running in the morning. - The price is good value for money. - Nearby, 2-3 min walking there is a ocean side kid's playground. Check Google map, it is good.

We stayed 5 nights. Had a ground floor suite - good because you get a patio from which you can walk out onto the grass. Facillites and furnishings were high quality. The site is handy to Palm Cove if you want walk (30 minutes) or drive but has the advantage that it is quiet and less busy than Palm Cove. Close to shops for food and supplies. Surroundings are pleasant and the units are just across the road from the beach. We thought it was very good value. Internet access is free and reasonably fast. If you want fully self contained accommodation with easy parking then Argosy is very good.

We had a two bedroom apartment on the top floor, although one of the bedrooms was locked because we didn't need the second bedroom. Excellent privately owned apartment with all the facilities of a luxury apartment. Location was just what we wanted: quiet, close to the beach and very well managed by Karen and Angelo, who were extremely helpful with anything we needed. Shops are within a kilometre or so and there is an excellent restaurant just around the corner. Easy access to Palm Cove (a walk) or Cairns central. We will be back.

It was our 2nd time staying at these lovely apartments and another blissful holiday. What a piece of paradise! Quieter than Palm Cove, only 30 minute walk away though, Coco Mojo nearby for dining or cocktails, lovely large wrap around balcony in unit 9 on the 3rd floor, 2 massive bedrooms with king zip apart beds, 2 good bathrooms, great for couples or families, directly opposite the amazing Clifton Beach (great for swimming or laying on the beach), large comfortable lounge and dine, lots of fans and air cons, sliding doors to the front ent balcony, also a rear balcony off both bedrooms, kitchen is well equipped, peaceful and quiet, totally relaxing, surrounded with lush tropical gardens, fantastic inground sparkling pool, everything very well maintained! Very tidy group. Kangaroos always hanging out in the back gardens - very Aussie! Abs no complaints. Made our holiday amazing. Preferred staying here over Palm Cove as it's quieter and away from the hustle and bustle. Also close to the local shopping centre with Coles, Brumby's, alcohol - all you need. Can not wait to come back. Highly recommend these beautiful apartments - especially unit 9! Just stunning. Thank you!

Great boutique style apartments, very spacious but showing their age with the need for updating. This is more than made up for with being positioned directly opposite Clifton Beach. Full length balcony was great place to relax.

Across the road from the beach, beautifully appointed unit with everything you could need. We had young adult children with us - the apartment was spacious and we did not feel at all cramped. It was quiet, beautiful and within easy reach of everything! The staff are absolutely amazing. Karen and Angelo are knowledgeable, helpful and most welcoming. I highly recommend Argosy.

Lovely beach front apartment building in quiet Clifton Beach. 4 levels with 4 apartments on each level. Cleverly built, i.e. you don't see your neighbours when on the spacious balconies, covered parking at the back, separate staircases, noiseless elevators, roomy apartments, open plan kitchen-living-dining... Although the apartments are a little dated, the furnishings were modern and bright, the beds and the linen were very good and everything was spotlessly clean. You have everything you need from all the kitchen equipment including dish washer, laundry with washer and dryer, air dryer for the balcony, iron, hair dryer, towels and beach/pool towels, nice outdoor furniture for balcony included even a lounge chair. The outside is beautifully maintained with nice gardens and pool area with outdoor furniture and bbq (spotless) with lights for evening meals. Nice big pool but the Spa pool was not heated. Managers Karen and Angelo are very helpful, knowledgable, professional and look after you as much or as little as you want. Great recommendation and booking was arranged for our reef trip which was a highlight. Weather was great in July, 27-28C, mostly sunny, one day of rain during our 10 day stay. Hopefully we can come back one day!

We wanted a peaceful holiday, somewhere warm where we could see the beach and hear the beach. Argosy promised to deliver, and they did. The apartment was on the top floor, spacious, with a large covered balcony looking at Clifton Beach. Although a little dated, the apartment was immaculate, had a well-equipped kitchen and was very comfortable. Fantastic management who assisted us throughout our 2 week stay with advice on where to shop, where to sight-see, restaurant recommendations at every price point. We were a 2 kilometer walk from the bustle of Palm Cove, however, Clifton Beach is peaceful, pristine and felt very safe. Beautiful walking paths wind around the beach and there is virtually no through traffic. Argosy has beautiful gardens and a sparkling pool, we would happily stay there again.

Had a 2 week stay in May. Could not fault the Argosy Apartments. Best equipped apartment we have stayed in.Spacious, clean apartment, beautiful gardens, pool and view of the Coral Sea. Beautiful sea breeze every day. Love Clifton Beach. Easy walk to Palm Cove. You can catch the bus to local shopping centre, Palm Cove or into Cairns. Karen and Angelo wonderful mangers.

Stayed here in a two bedroom apartment which was reduced to one bedroom for our stay as there was only the two of us. The apartment was clean and roomy with full kitchen and a separate toilet. Straight across the road from the beach. Bus going past the door, shops close and Cairns cbd a 15 minute drive. Would efinitely stay again. No issues at all
