“Haven of peace and, yes, Tranquility”

We have just returned from 3 weeks visiting family. Our daughter lives in Kewarra Beach but has her Dental practice in Palm Cove, so through TripAdvisor we began a search for a suitable place to stay. We wanted to rent a spacious, comfortable apartment that was near the beach; close to shops; in a quiet area at a reasonable cost. A lot to ask for! BUT no - Tranquility is a small block of some 12 apartments, set behind the most beautiful palm trees and exotic foliage, and in a very quiet road literally 2 minutes from the glory of Palm Cove beach.
Our apartment (number 7, but more romantically called Relax) was fantastic. Spacious, airy and very well equipped, and also spotless! Comfortable beds, large showers in en-suite and main bathroom; large balcony with table/chairs where we had breakfast (there is a large gas BBQ that can be used as well); washing machine and tumble drier which we used a lot. For those of you with small children, there is a push chair, booster seats and a travel cot, all in a handy store cupboard off the balcony. Other family members flew up from Canberra and stayed nearby, and they were very impressed with our apartment. The only minor difficulty was in seating them in comfy chairs. There is only a 3 seater settee for relaxing, although 6-8 dining chairs, so we all sat round the enormous glass dining table to talk...and talk......For the cost of Relax, we thought we got a lot. We do a lot of self-catering in the UK so we know a bargain when we see one! Palm Cove IS expensive, but this little gem is almost perfect - AND you get a lockable garage thrown in, AND free telephone calls - a facility we used, but did not abuse. If we are able to visit our family again, this is the place we will DEFINITELY want to stay.

“It's No 7”
Reviewed 1 March 2013 for a stay in February 2013

The most important thing to know about this property is that it's unit 7. This is not clear from the address and we spent some time trying to break into Flat 5 before trying keys into locks at random.
The property is extremely well equipped with everything you could need, including lots of beach towels, umbrellas, and a huge gas barbeque on the balcony. There is a secure garage with storage room and a lift up so it is suitable for people with limited mobility.
The flat is one block back from the beach about 50m, which is probably a good thing in season but there are no sea views and if that matters to you you could probably turn up in the off season and get a unit on the front.
Palm Cove was an attractive resort mostly closed until April.
Coming from the UK and suffering a nervous breakdown as to the cost of things in Australia I can't really comment on value for money as I have no comparator, but for 3 adults it was cheaper than I could get 2 hotel rooms and much more space and comfortable.
The only slight criticsm is that it sleeps 4 but the only comfy seating is a 3seater sofa so another small sofa would be good. (There are ding chairs and outdoor chairs on the balcony.)

Thank you for your review. Happy to hear you could just disable the air freshener for your convenience. The entry door of the unit will be marked so it's easier to locate. Always good to hear how we can improve it further. Kindest Regards,Peter - owner

“Superb Location, Wonderful Apartment, Great Value.”
Reviewed 16 December 2012 for a stay in December 2012

My Partner and I stayed at Tranquility Relax for 2 weeks and found it to be wonderful. The surrounding area is so lovely, with quick access to Cairns, Port Douglas, Mossman, Kuranda and not to mention the beach which is just 50-100m down the road! It was pretty well-equipped, had just about everything we needed. The pool was nice and when we went down it was usually just the two of us down there. Air con in every room was beautiful as well! Plenty of restaurants around too. Intend to come back and stay again next year!

“brilliant - once we found it!”
Reviewed 21 November 2012 for a stay in November 2012

I concur with all the positive comments made in the other reviews - though I do wonder why so many of them are from single reviewers? The first impressions were not good as we arrived in the dark and could not find the property as the name board is not visible at night - all we could see was a for sale sign. The map and address sent by the management company were very misleading and there was no name on the apartment door to distinguish it as the properrty we were looking for - so eventually I had to phone the agent to get specific directions. This was extremely annoying and I hope the agent has improved communications. However once inside we were delighted. It is spacious, comfortable and well designed. You certainly do need air con. But it is limited to a min of 25c. It is very we'll equipped. Location is superb - 50 metres from the beach front and restaurants. Despite the initial problems I would recommend this place.

Thank you for your review.
The feedback regarding my rental agent will be passed on.
I will ensure that the door of the unit will have the name Tranquility Relax on it asap to make it easier to locate and ask the body corporate to install lights on the tranquility sign outside to locate the complex easier at night.
Once again thank you for your constructive feedback as it allows me to keep improving tranquility relax.

“Aptly named: Tranquility Relax”
Reviewed 5 August 2012 for a stay in July 2012

We rented the apartment one beautiful July weekend to chill out at Palm Cove whilst my wife and mother-in-law enjoyed the local spa delights. The location of the apartment is perfect. One small block away from the beach it is quiet and tranquil and away from the bustle of the front yet just a hop away from the restaurants, spas and the beach. Located on the second floor, the lift came in handy with the luggage, kids stroller and my mother-in-law's mobility issues. The apartment itself is spacious, with a nice open layout and is tastefully decorated. The kitchen was reasonably equipped but what we used most was the BBQ on the balcony. There was easy internet access via WiFi allowing me to keep in touch with my e-mail...which my wife was less happy about :) There are two bathrooms and two bedrooms which made it an ideal arrangement for our group.
Any downsides? Difficult to find fault with this holiday accomodation. For the price, when compared to other similar properties in the area that we checked out, it represented good value for money, and with easy access to all amenities, we had a lovely time and I would definitely recommend this property to anyone visiting.
