In the morning you will probably hear the cheerfull sound of the Kookaburra. When we were there, we saw an almost tame one. :). The beds...

My wife and I stayed at Kookas B&B when we visited Cairns, Australia and the Great Barrier Reef and it was a great place to stay. The owner, Marlies, and her "Crew" could not do enough for us. The accommodations were private with a porch, access to their in-ground swimming pool and a great view of the ocean. Marlies picked...

Lovely spot away from the hustle and bustle of the city. We enjoyed every morning a delicious breakfast with magnificent views over the surroundings. Our room was comfy, super clean and very spacious, the Lindt chocolate bonbons in the fridge a sweet welcoming attention. Marlies and Bruno did everything to offer us a pleasant and relaxing stay.

We arrived at this lovely house, which is in a great location, to a less than warm welcome by the owner Marlies. Although the house could not be faulted, we felt that we were intruding. We never worked out what it was, but we thought it may have been because we were English rather German. On the day we were...
