This villa is amazing. The views over the ocean are stunning. The host - Gail - is a lovely person, and went out of her way to make us feel welcome. She even provided a great tropical breakfast :) We hired both the king room and the 2 bedroom apartment, so we virtually had the place to ourselves. The pool...

This accommodation was like nothing we'd ever experienced before, due to the ocean views that stretched on forever. Beautiful swimming pool, and shaded enough so it was a brilliant way to cool down in the midday heat. Wonderful tropical-style breakfast, privacy, wifi, huge ensuite with huge shower and huge bath (which we didn't need as the beach is a quick...

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...

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....

We are Chinese from Hong Kong, staying for 7 nights. The seaview is so fantastic that I have never experienced before. I couldn't imagine even in the bathroom, you can enjoy seaview! 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...

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....

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...

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.

What a fantastic break! A Vila Gail has an outstanding situation, on a hill overlooking Yorkeys Knob beach. We stayed in the apartment which has awe inspiring views of the Coral Sea - words just aren't enough! Gail is also a wonderful host, serving super fresh summer fruits, toast, jam and juice everyday.She was absolutely attentive to our needs, really...
