This is a great place to stay if you are in the Cairns area. Very nice rooms/apartments, great pool and friendly staff. Several good restaurants within walking distance. Even an espresso machine in our room. Who could ask for more? Did I mention a well equipped kitchen!

As a cairns local I don’t usually get to review cairns based places but was very impressed with this place when staying there with interstate family. Stayed in one of the ground floor rooms with pool access and was very impressed with the whole setup. The only negative is that there is no reception with Telstra due to the small hill right next to the area. Crossing the road to the beach helps get signal and the resort does have free wifi which worked flawlessly while we were there.

This was our fourth visit to Trinity Beach but our first time at Sea Change. Stayed on a top floor apartment for 7 nights. The apartments are well furnished, all the kitchen gadgets you could need, laundry facilities and lovely views of the Coral Sea. Use of the second bathroom /separate toilet at no extra cost was fantastic. Appreciate the window and door screens so you could leave the windows and doors open to capture the breezes without the bugs. Secure underground parking are provided for each apartment - bays are little tight if you have a large 4wd. Look forward to a return visit in 2018.

Accommodation that really makes you feel at home. We were late to check in, so a key and garage key fob were left in a secure safe to collect. Apartment was really spacious with every home facility that you might need. The kitchen was fully loaded, the two bedrooms were clean, comfortable and well apart. The bathrooms were big and showers powerful with hot water at all times. We stepped outside onto a groundfloor patio that led straight to the pool, its bigger than it looks online and water was nice and warm. The beach was quite literally across the road and was manned by a lifeguard. As we were out and about quite alot, the garage is open from 8am to 6pm but you get a key fob to open at other times. The staff were accommodating and friendly. Really couldn't fault it!

First time here and even though it was a short stay, it was a very comfortable and enjoyable one. The apartment was awesome, had great views,heaps of room and the spa was massive :) The service was fantastic and we'll definitely be back :) Thanks guys.

Stayed at Seachange Apartments - we keep coming back because it's just awesome. Great accom, great pool, great location down the quiet end of the Esplanade. Easy access to beach, couple of nice restaurants nearby, and a short drive to Cairns and all the attractions in region. Fantastic family getaway, couldn't recommend it more highly.

We have just had another wonderful holiday at Sea Change. From the moment you walk into reception, your mood changes to one of total relaxation. Rebecca and Simon are perfect hosts. They are very welcoming and helpful, and their advice, including tour options and weather conditions, is first class. We stay in a 2 bedroom with the sundeck and the room is immaculately presented. Always clean and fresh, and on extended stays the room is regularly serviced to the same high standard. And the pool area and gardens are always in pristine condition. Situated with the beach across the road, close to wonderful restaurants and easy access to the tourist attractions Cairns has to offer, Sea Change Beachfront Apartments is the perfect holiday destination.

We had a great stay in the Seachange Appartement on the 3rd floor with wonderfull view to the beach. The appartement has everything you need for short or long stay, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathes and 1 with whirlpool, open kitchen, eating table and sitting area. All has a very nice ambiente. Rebecca from the staff was very helpful and booked the Kuranda tour and transfer in advance. All over in the reception area and floors is quiet and relaxing atmosphere with water flowing and charismatic, silent music. The pool is great with chairs and a grill area and Whirlpool. Everything was very clean. It was a perfect stay!

Our first visit to the Seachange apartments was in 2001 and we are pleased to say that over time, management has maintained the very high standards of maintenance and cleanliness. This is a place to go and unwind and take it easy. Everything you need is in the extremely spacious apartment and quite a few good restaurants nearby on the beach esplanade. A nice clean beach as well as the in ground pool. The bird life in the trees around the facility and on the beach is pretty impressive. Handy to all the expected tourist activities in and around Cairns. An easy walk to the Trinity Beach shopping centre for supplies. The only thing we could think of to improve the experience would be for a recycling facility to be available, but this is probably outside the control of the management.

We stayed here for a 6 night holiday in one of the 2 bedroom apartments. The apartments are very well appointed, nicely decorated and extremely large and airy. We originally booked for 3 nights and very quickly extended to 6 nights. Our apartment on the top floor had fabulous views over Trinity Beach-fabulous sunrises from the balcony. Trinity beach is very peaceful and is well placed in the area. We did a number of trips from here to see as much as we could....we did have a car but nothing was more than 1-1.5 hours drive away. We would not hesitate to return here.
