Allan was the perfect host. The apartment was perfect for our family, with 2 balconies, a generous sized living area. There was such attention to detail in making it feel so much like home, with ample everything to make our stay so comfortable. Location is excellent, one street back from the centre of the esplanade strip, we were a very short walk to everything in palm cove. We would be back to stay in a heartbeat. Thank you Allan!

Laura’s private feedback for you:

“Hi Allan, Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in this lovely apartment. It was exactly what our family needed, and made our getaway just perfect. I'm on the up, thank god, after my sudden and horrible bout of sickness, and thank you for allowing me to stay for a little longer while the cleaners were there, I really appreciate it. We would love to stay again sometime, everything was just perfect for a family. Thanks very much, Laura, Liam and family”

'Our 4-night stay in Palm Cove was (by far) our favorite - of a vacation throughout Australia & New Zealand over 16 nights (5 total Airbnb's)!! Allan was so nice & hospitable upon check-in....pointing out all of the apartment features & surrounding community amenities. We wouldn't think of staying anywhere else upon return to the region. Thank you Allan!!'

'We had a great stay at Allan’s apartment. Allan is lovely and friendly, and his communication was excellent. The apartment was exactly as described as it looks in the pictures, so clean and comfy. The kitchen is well equipped. Great place, close to beach and restaurants, definitely recommend it!'

“10/10 would stay again! Excellent value for money, great location and pool and spa were a winner. Apartment is nice and spacious and quiet as it is at the back of the block away from the pool and main road. Thank you to Allan and Liene for a wonderful stay”

“Great place to spend our vacation in Bali. The housekeeper ensured our villa was always spotless. The individual villa was secluded enough for a romantic getaway and still close enough to walk to all the hotspots of Sanur. I highly recommend staying here if you plan to visit Bali.”

“We had a great stay at Allan's unit. It was sparkling clean & had a recent total renovation. The rooms were very spacious & the location was perfect.”

Chris - Guest at The Zen Villa Bali in May 2019;

Extremely well priced, fantastic accommodation. Have been to Bali 6 times in the last 4 years and stayed in varying accommodation, this is my 3rd villa. Normally the online photos are many years old, and and the villas no longer look like the pictures. This is the exception. The pics, while wonderful, don't convey how great it actually is. It's so much better. I'm in my mid 40's, my traveling companion in her late 60's, so we expect, and are willing to pay for, a high standard in our accommodation. We were looking for quiet, secluded, safe accommodation, walking distance to the beach, that didn't break the bank. This villa ticked all the boxes, and offered even more than we were looking for. We've paid twice the price before and gotten a lot less for our $, less the 400m from Zen. I was a lil wary at first as I'd never used Airbnb before but Allan was wonderful. Both constantly keeping me updated and checking that our flight details hadn't changed. He even organised a driver to pick us up from the airport at a very small fee. Free wifi, an inhouse laptop computer, a library of books, dvds and music cds are supplied. Been here less than 48hrs and are already planning our next trip. I'll never stay anywhere else again!

Here’s what Elisabetta wrote

“The apartment is situated in a small upscale gated community with nice vegetation and a beautiful big pool. It has a great balcony which is perfect for breakfast and dinner. It is stylish and comfortable, very very spacious. We appreciated the fact that there were plenty of bath towels and beach towels for us to use. Also available washer and dryer, dishwasher, with all the soap we could need. Also in the kitchen there is plenty of dishes and cups, so you don’t need to wash every time you have a cup of coffee. Also some basic things like salt and pepper, sugar and coffee powder, milk and more. The Main Street with all the restaurants is just around the corner, as well as the beautiful Palm Cove beach. We couldn’t have asked for anything more!”

Here’s what Anh wrote - Stayed 8th Nov 2018 at Tranquility Chill Palm Cove.

“We enjoyed our stay at Allan’s place very much. Just a corner away from the main street and walking distance to everywhere. The apartment is great size with two big balconies and a decent kitchen size. Perfect for family with children or a group of friends. There is a bbq pitch but we did not have a chance to use it since there are many restaurants near by. Great place!”

We really enjoyed our stay. The apartment is in a great location within an easy walk to the shops restaurants, wharf and the beach. The pool is very large with plenty of lounges. The apartment, although a little older is extremely well set up with everything you need for your stay. The bed was very comfortable.

Total privacy, very relaxing, everything we needed for our stay, private parking spot, abundance of towels instead of the usual one or two you would normally get elsewhere! Property Manager Allan was very professional, and helpful in going over and above to meet us to direct us to the property, excellent service thank you, we hope he enjoyed his fresh fish! Waterfront a short 5 min drive or 10 min walk away with excellent cafes and restaurants aplenty! Location great as only 25 min to Cairns or 35 min to Port Douglas and a bus is available from the waterfront if you don’t have a car! Overall a great holiday thank you!


“Excellent apartment near the beach”

The host was more than welcoming and helpful. The apartment is spacious, very well equipped and recently renovated. It is a stone’s throw away from the beach in a charming village, 25 km north of Cairns. Residents have the use of a nice swimming pool on the grounds of the apartment block, which only has three floors.

Stayed in August 2018

Absolutely awesome location, beautiful penthouse. Had everything we needed & the host, Allan was so welcoming and friendly. Will definitely be back. Do yourself a favour and don’t book elsewhere.


Here’s what Sara Jane wrote - Stay July 2018

“Extremely clean and wonderful location right in the middle of Palm Cove. The beach is less than a block away right between all the good restaurants. There was not a good view from the room but when you are so close to everything it wasn’t a problem. The garage was good for a small suv but nothing larger would fit and allow passengers to get in the vehicle while parked in the garage but the garage area is covered so there was plenty of covered room to load outside of the garage. We felt very safe in the area and there was plenty of room in the unit to do work and relax. Very nice and we would definitely stay here again.”

Hi Allan

We very much enjoyed our stay at Argosy 9 and wish to thank you for your efforts in organising our stay. The unit was great and the view from the balcony was fantastic. The bottle of red wine was most enjoyable and we appreciated the welcoming gift from you. Thanks for helping Donna with her booking for next year, we will also be looking to stay again next year in Clifton Beach.
Thanks again

“Great location, within walking distance to many restaurants, beach and the centre of palm cove. The lift is a slight bit noisy next to the third bedroom but otherwise the apartment has spacious bedrooms and good sized living area with lovely pool. Lock up garage is another plus. Had a lovely stay with a great host! Thank you

Great apartment in a wonderful location. The resort is fantastic and apt 205 is situated in a wonderful position overlooking the pool. The apt was clean and tidy and had everything we needed. There was free WIFI and also a portacot and high chair for us to use for our 6 month old. This apt and resort is a great place to stay for families.

Absolutely first class.

November 5, 2015

This is an exceptional property. We don't have a negative thing to say. It is maintained to a very high standard. Nothing was tired within the apartment, as is usually the case. It appeared to be freshly painted. Perfect position over looking the pool. It wasn't noisy at all. We are extremely fussy, but this exceeded our expectations. We highly recommend this property. We will definitely book it again. In addition the resort itself is much better than the Peppers Beach Club. We did have a look and felt that Sea Temple was much better. Many thanks to Alan for meeting us and showing us around. Alan is very professional and helpful.

Amazing Holiday

November 20, 2015

We had a fantastic first family holiday at Temple 230 in early Nov. We immediately relaxed in the comfort of the apartment. Allan was also great and easily contacted. The apartment suits a family with young children, it's very child friendly which was a huge relief. The resort in itself was fantastic too, great facilities and staff always willing to offer assistance. Location wise it was away from the hustle and bustle of the main street but only a 5-10 min walk. We will definitely be back in 2016, thanks for the wonderful memories.

Beautiful Apartment

May 23, 2017

This is a beautiful apartment in a lovely resort. There was plenty of room for our family of 5. We met the host checking in and he showed us around the apartment. We loved having a washer and dryer. There are lots of extras in the apartment like games, books, baby cot, dishes, sand toys. Loved sitting out on the balcony in the evenings with the torches lit throughout the resort grounds. We mostly self catered, but it is an easy walk into the Palm Cove Esplanade with lots of great restaurants. The kids really enjoyed the swimming pools. Thanks for a great stay!

Amazing stay

April 30, 2017

We have just returned from an 8 day stay at SeaTemple and had an amazing time. The apartments were perfect...clean, spacious and well equipped with extra towels and toiletries...I enjoyed many peaceful snoozes on the day bed! It was great to be greeted by Alan and the mid stay clean was a treat. The resort itself is very pleasant and our teenage boys enjoyed swimming everyday (and night!). The bar is great for afternoon drinks and a light dinner and the staff very accomodating. We are so glad we chose Palm Cove as it is much quieter and more relaxed than Port Douglas but with plenty of cafes, restaurants and still close to all the activities. Di was great to deal with...Many thanks and we are already dreaming about returning!

We've just come back from a 9 day stay at Di and Doug's apartment and we found we could not fault one thing. The apartment was clean, spacious and provided just about everything we needed.

Thank you Di and Doug!

Fantastic Resort & Apartment

December 13, 2015

We had fantastic holiday based at Di West's apartments. The apartment was beautiful and had everything you require. The Sea Temple Resort is a Five star resort right on the beach with multiple pools which we used for hours every day. On arrival we were met by Allan who takes you up to the apartment and reassures that should you need anything he is readily available. Sea Temple is just a short stroll to Palm Cove restaurants etc and there is life guard supervised swimming. Clifton Beach shopping centre is a short drive away with a Coles Supermarket where you can stock up. Our two teenage boys had a fabulous time out on the reef, swimming at Mossman Gorge, cable wake & knee board skiing and Go Karting. There are activities for all ages and interests available. Finally and most importantly dealing with Di & Doug West is seamless and enjoyable. We look forward to our return visit soon.

Amazing Property

December 6, 2016

This property is outstanding with everything a family needs. The location within the resort is perfect. Tennis/Gym nearby (racquets/balls provided in apartment), Serenity Pool for a quiet time located directly below but given the property is on 3rd level there is still privacy, access to the lagoon pool but far enough away to block out excess noise. Highly recommend this property! See you again soon.

Just writing to let you know we had a great time at the apartment. It was perfect for the family and had everything we needed - even a stroller and plenty of beach toys for the kids and a beer/wine fridge for the adults up by the spa!! The resort was fantastic with 3 pools - 2 for the kids and one for the adults The grandparents loved it and are even thinking of flying straight to cairns from the UK next time they come over to spend more time here All in all a great place with prefect weather, the only downer was we should have booked a couple more days - well be back though!!!

We stayed for 7 nights in this beautiful apartment and had a fantastic time. It was well appointed with everything you could need, lovely and clean and we got to use the wonderful facilities of Peppers. A highlight of the apartment was the rooftop hot tub, our kids loved this novelty to warm up after swimming in the Lagoon pool. It was also handy having a BBQ on the rooftop terrace, allowing us to enjoy some pleasant evening dinners in. We highly recommend this apartment, it is extremely family friendly. We will be booking a return stay next year.

excellent stay and service

May 27, 2014

We stayed at the Beach Club 6233 apartment in Palm Cove just recently and have to say that this was the perfect family getaway. The resort is just fabulous with a lovely Serenity Rainforest pool for the grown ups as well as catering for our little one with the kids friendly sand pool. The apartment was magnificent. Starting from the beautiful location and interior of the apartment, roof top jacuzzi & BBQ which made for nice evening relaxing looking out to the leafy surrounds, comfortable beds and all the quality kitchen accessories & utensils one could ask for including a new pod coffee machine! Everything we needed was literally there or was supplied when we requested it at time of booking eg a portable cot, high chair and safety gate for our little one. Even pool toys and DVDs for a rainy day. You couldn't ask for more. Booking was really easy and Bernadette was very helpful with all the questions we had. Once we arrived the local property manager met us and showed us where to park the car and how to enter the apartment and a general run down on things and surroundings. He was our point of contact during our stay and always easy to get in touch with and helpful as well when we requested a late check out. We will definitely stay here again when visiting Palm Cove next time. Thank you again for a wonderful time.
