Excellent accommodations, great view especially while eating breakfast on the deck. Marlies and Bruno are excellent hosts and very knowledgeable about the area. It is a good walk from town so Marlie dropped us off at the bus. Great impression of Cairns and the people that live there!

Wonderful location, it was handy to everything. The drive is a bit of a surprise being very steep but the parking is very well organised so it isn't a problem and of course you wouldn't have the wonderful view without it. Received a very warm welcome upon arrival, like arriving at a friend's, with a drink & a chat on...
