Sea Temple Palm Cove Queensland Beach Front Resort
Description from the owner
Sea Temple Resort & Spa is arguably the finest resort on the Palm Cove beachfront. Our three bedroom apartment sleeps 6 guests and is modern, stylish and fully equipped for your holiday needs, with a full kitchen and laundry. Enquire and I will reply promptly confirming price and availability. Check availability and enter your desired nights, the price shown is all you pay for a min night booking. I typically offer discounts for longer stays, and if you're nights fill gaps between existing bookings and for last minute bookings less than 4 weeks out. We are experienced owners who offer you our beautiful apartment for your holiday. Please enquire.
THE BOOKING PROCESS
Your enquiry will always get to me via the FlipKey App on my phone, by SMS and email, I will reply promptly and or call you personally if you provide your number. After a decade of answering accommodation enquiries I know well that nothing beats the old fashioned call and or email/text conversation with me or my agent, which lets us find out your requirements, answer any questions and be sure that our apartment will suit and accommodate your group in comfort, and importantly if the nights I have available meet your travel plans. Plus there are many times when I can offer guests a better price especially their travel dates are flexible and or can fill gaps in my bookings. That is the real value of making contact. Plus other things like requests for early or late check if needed can be arranged if possible, organising a cot.
Frequently guests are ready to confirm their accommodation with us, however they first need to confirm leave, sort out flights or make other arrangements. When this happens I will hold the nights for our guests for a couple days while they sort out things out.
Finally if you are happy to proceed and want to confirm your booking we will require a deposit payment of 50% of the total booking price. Plus once your deposit has been received a 'Fair Cancelation Policy', please see this below.
HOW TO PAY
We have a paid subscription listing for this property and it can be found on multiple FlipKey group sites globally. We chose a FlipKey subscription listing because it allows owners to communicate directly with enquiries and to make payment arrangements outside of their website.
We ask for a 50% deposit to secure and confirm the booking. The remaining 50% still owing is paid to my agent typically a month before your arrival date. That completes and finalises all payments due. Note for bookings taken less than four weeks out from your arrival date, we will normally ask for full payment upfront.
Most Australian guests pay by BSB direct bank transfer directly to me or to my agent, or by credit card to my agent. For our international guests we prefer and recommend credit card payment, my agent will liaise directly with you to arrange payment. We don't charge a surcharge for Visa or MasterCard transactions.
As of this time we have not signed up to the FlipKey on line payment system or similar on any of the other sites that we advertise on. Because we don't use the online booking system, I won't be sending quotes back and forth either that expire within a time limit
OUR SEA TEMPLE APARTMENT
We love to stay in our holiday apartment ourselves when we can get away and we have made sure that the things that we like and would expect in a luxury apartment are also there for all our guests. As well as being freshly cleaned and made up for each arrival, it is the obvious things like comfortable lounges enough to seat all the guests, a 50-inch plasma TV, free Wi-Fi, Xbox, plus it's also the little things like quality cookware, a Nespresso coffee machine, nice cutlery and glassware, drying racks on the balcony to hang out your bathers and towels after the pool, that's what makes the difference for our guests.
The prices are for the whole apartment, which sleeps 6 and is a spacious 172 square meters three bedroom apartment, with living spaces typically larger than comparable two bedroom apartments.
This is the tenth year we have been using accommodation sites like FlipKey and others to advertise our property and we consistently take around 40 bookings each year; Most of our guests still come from Australia and New Zealand, however in recent years more and more are coming from further away. These days I am also pleased to say that around 25% of our bookings are return guests and or their recommendations to friends and family. And almost all of them originally found our place via accommodation sites like FlipKey.
Our apartment is cleaned and serviced with fresh linen and towels ready for each new arrival. Then it serviced on a weekly basis thereafter. For bookings over 8 nights, our guests will have an extra mid stay clean and linen change on a day that suits them. We can arrange additional serving and even daily servicing if required.
On arrival, our guests will find a beautiful clean apartment and the beds are all made up, and the bathrooms will have those white hotel type towels and those cute little soaps & shampoos. "What else would you expect".
172 square meters or 1850 square feet of living spaces & balconies, it is spacious.
Open-plan kitchen lounge and dining room that opens to the main balcony.
The main balcony has a day lounge, chairs and coffee table.
Master suite with king bed with luxury ensuite shower & huge spa bath

SUPPORT, AN ONGOING POINT OF CONTACT, AND KEY PICK UP.
I engage a very professional agent, they are Raine & Horne Real-estate located at Veivers Road Palm Cove, near Sea Temple and they specialise in managing holiday let apartments and homes for owners like me. After our initial communication and your deposit payment is received, my agent takes over and manages all aspects of your booking and stay. Raine & Horne will send you your booking confirmation and invoice, and can even arrange special things like cots and high chairs. If you need assistance or something is not right or not up to standard then please contact Raine & Horne. Plus you can always call, text or email me at any stage.
Key pick up is via their office on Veivers Street Palm Cove just at the corner of James Cook Highway. They have a secure key facility for late or early arrivals and departures.
AS OUR GUEST YOU MAY USE ALL THE GREAT FACILITIES AT SEA TEMPLE RESORT
You are can use all the fabulous features around the apartment i.e. the pools, the grounds, the deck chairs, the gymnasium, the undercover parking, the lifts and the resorts reception and lobby area etc.
You are of course also welcome to use the facilities run by the onsite management Pullman Resorts, such as their wonderful day spa and boutique, the Sea Temple restaurant, the bar and the poolside bistro. These are all open to the public and all quests staying at the resort are welcome.
You are staying as my guest (the apartment owner) rather than as a guest of the Sea Temple Palm Cove's onsite management, which currently operates Sea Temple as a Pullman Resort for other owners who have selected to use the pooled letting service. Because of this please be aware the Pullman staff and reception are not at your beck and call, so if you need anything call Raine & Horne.
