From the second I walked into my room with the crisp white linen and view of the lower landing overlooking the ocean, I felt my mind and body relax and start to rejuvenate. Gail was a wonderful host offering local tips without being invasive. The simple but delicious breakfast left on a tray consisted of seasonal fresh fruits, with marmalade... More

Lovely hostess. Nice high accommodation with great views. Quiet. Great breakfast. Up a steep hill, not a lot of parking opportunities. You will need to walk down a steep hill or drive to go to the shops or beach below.

My wife and I loved this out of the way B and B. Incredible view of the Coral Sea, and the King room had plenty of room for us to relax. Gail was a fantastic and lovely host, providing us with multiple splendid ideas of things to do. You are 15 minutes from the airport and 25 from Cairns downtown.... More

The host is very nice and helpful, all my family members feel like at home! Sure, when I visit Cairns next time, I will stay in A Villa... More

Cannot escape the sea from this villa perched at the very top of the promontory. Have lost count of my foreign travels, but this B&B captivated me like no other. Fantastic price, though the king suite is a room & bath, not a 1 bed or studio. The azure vista from all corners drowns any woes you might encounter. Brava.... More

We stayed for 3 nights. The place is absolutely amazing and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The views were incredible and I didn't feel like visiting other areas. Gail is one of the best hosts I've met. She's extra caring. I will definitely be coming back and will definitely recommend it The only flip side is the number of stairs... More

Our family of four stayed in the two bedroom apartment with a never ending view of the ocean and it's beautiful sunset. Gail is a wonderful host and can't do enough to make you welcome. Thanks for making our holiday complete.

Great hospitality from Gail (and her dog) 😄 amazing views, perfect getaway location. Well worth the walk up the very steep hill! A little bit of paradise, probably our favourite stop on our month long trip round Australia. Lovely breakfast in the morning and great tips on the local area

Absolutely enjoyed my stay here! Gail was an excellent hostess going above my expectations! Had the king room! Plenty of space and Windows for my viewing enjoyment. Comfy bed! Could wake up to the beautiful ocean and a majestic sunrise and lovely music of the birds along with a breeze thru the open windows. Yes there are stairs all about,... More
