Palm Cove Tropic Apartments
Travel Blogs from Palm Cove
We walked out after sharing our first kiss, which had to be repeated many times for the photographers! Sally had arranged everyone in a line outside the chapel and there was a flower petal shower as we walked out. It was beautiful!
We had photos with everyone and then went down to the beach. The Angsana had provided us with blue mocktails and some nibbles to have while we had our photos done. The guests went down to the Far ...
... buying our own home etc. The thing is though, that through both the good and bad times, we've never faltered on our path and never been anything other than simply happy to be in each other's company.
This is the first night I've been without Jase in well over a year and I feel like I'm missing a limb!
The last couple of days have been crazy, and it's lovely to be sitting here in peaceful contemplation ...
... Ellis Beach
We got up at 5am and headed off to Cairns where Marcus, Col, Wendy & Joe were heading off on the long awaited fishing charter. We stopped to get Macmuffins for breaky on the way and fed the incredibly hungry parking metres near the Marina and boarded the the charter boat at 6.30am. 9 on board plus the Skipper and decky.
After the safety drill we headed out of the marina and headed north to the reefs. The smoker's were ...
... in. We decided this would be a great idea, to make the reef a better experience and really get deep down with the fish.
The 7:30am at the reef check in wasn't a very fun part of the day. I was feeling like a bit of a baby dinosaur that's been hatched too early. But the coffee helped a lot. Plus the beautiful weather. We were told the visibility under the water would be fantastic. Once on board the boat we were given a briefing about scuba diving rules ...
... and to exchange stories from when we left home until now.
As we started down the mountain from Kurandra it started to rain and rained right up until we got to Ellis Beach. Wendy came and found us and was soooo excited to see us. We are right on the beach and are booked in unti Monday. Mart & Jen are due to arrive later tonight.

Historical Traveler Reviews Palm Cove Tropic Apartments
Greate place to stay
our daughter organised the accommodation, it was excellant. Steve and Sandy were very helpful and lended us a hand when we needed help with transport. Steve provided glass ware from his own fridge when we needed a couple of extras.
On short notice, business colleague and I rented a two-bedroom apartment as a base for exploring the Great Barrier Reef. This spot turned out perfect!
Stayed for four nights, the apartment was lovely, clean and well furnished. Steve & Sandy were really helpfull, friendly, and happy to help, great time had by all, would reccomend this nice friendly place.
giving the units need an up date they were very clean the manegers were helpfull, nice and close to the beach and restaraunts, there was even a spade and bucket that we could borrow for the beach for the kids nice place will definately stay the again !!!!
My husband and I needed an escape for five days and Palm Cove Tropics was perfect for our needs. We visited the area during peak season which could have cost us a fortune but the affordable prices of Palm Cove mean't we could get away without breaking the bank.
We have reluctantly returned from PCTA. The Apartments are like a haven, most of the rooms surround a beautiful lagoon style pool. Our room was facing the pool, yet it was still very private and quiet. the gardens are beautifully kept and has a tropical feel.
Just returned from 10 days at Palm Cove Tropic Apts,which we booked on line through Travel Agent ,(big Mistake )and even before we arrived new managers Steve and Sandy made us
We stayed at the Palm Cove Tropic apartments for four nights in October, and loved it. We were looking for an affordable place to stay in Palm Cove that was near the beach, but quiet. It also needed to accomodate both our family of five and my parents. We had stayed in Palm Cove previously, and knew that places right on the Esplanade were quite expensive, and noisy at times. Steve and Sandy had the perfect solution for us. Their apartments are just steps from the beach, but one street off the main esplanade in a quiet, lush setting. They had an apartment that suited our family (and it's not always easy to find a place that sleeps five!) and another apartment that perfectly suited two people for my parents. I had originally booked for three nights, but Steve was cheerful about my request to change it to four nights a few days after my original booking. He was very pleasant to talk with on the phone, and followed up our conversations with confirmation emails.
We spent 11 nights at the Tropic apartments in August. We contacted the owners directly and, despite it being a late enquiry, Steve and Sandy did everything they could to fit us in and make our stay enjoyable. Prior to visiting Palm Cove we had lived out of a suitcase for 3 weeks, so were delighted when we arrived in QLD to find a very clean apartment of a high standard with all mod cons. The decked pool area is lovely; loungers are provided and it is quiet and peaceful surrounded by lush tropical plants. The BBQ area too is great (we want one in England?!) providing you with an additional kitchen, where we embraced the Aussie barbeque tradition. Steve and Sandy recommended different tours we could go on and their friendly, hospitable approach really enhanced our stay.
Basic but good
My husband, young son and I stayed here in late August '06. The ownership had just changed hands and new owners made every effort to ensure we had all we needed.
We had purposely booked a ground floor apartment for our toddler and it worked out well - although slightly dated, the full kitchen and laundry plus big balcony was a blessing.
The location is a little off the beaten track - at one end of Williams Esplanade - but that actually suited us (particularly with so much construction going on!).
I'd recommend this accommodation if you're after something cheal and cheerful and close to the beach.
