Malcolm and Anna were wonderful hosts in Yorkeys Knob. The apartment was incredibly clean and worked well for our needs. They were kind enough to arrange for transportation for us when needed. It was great being right across the street from the beach. They also provided great food recommendations.
We had just gorgeous days with Malcolm and Anna. We arrived there, put our luggage in the wonderful apartment and we went out with them for dinner at the boats club. It was really home away from home.
Whenever we needed something they could help us. Anna was booking us a great trip to great barrier reef, she was organizing the kite surfing for our daughter, booking us tables for dinner - everything, just great and so nice and friendly. The apartment is sooooooo beautiful, the view to the beach, every evening we had kookaburra birds sitting on the balcony, the sunrise is just stunning.
the apartment is perfect clean, big, 2 nice bedrooms plus 2 bathrooms, a living room with that wonderful view - just great. We´re already missing it.
Every morning we had really great coffee just downstairs at Malcolm´s shop (it´s really, really good coffee - you must enjoy this) and the last evening we had a absolutely awesome lebanese dinner with other guests and friends of Malcolm and Anna.
If you wanna visit Cairns go to Yorkey´s knob and than try the best and get an apartment from Malcolm and Anna - you´ll love it!
we had such a great great time there. thank you so much, Malcolm, Anna & Thalia are such great hosts

Même si on est un peu loin de Cairns et donc des départs pour les îles ou autre, il y a un arrêt de bus en face et le spot est vraiment super : nous avions la plage pour nous seuls (ou presque), l'appartement est très agréable et nos hôtes très sympas ! Nous le recommandons chaleureusement !
Its a very beautiful and clean beachfront apartment.Rooms are spacious. Anna and Malcome gave us some good ideas about Cairns and they are very friendly . We all enjoyed the stay there.Thanks Anna and Malcome.
This felt like our home away from home. Malcolm and his family could not be more welcoming. With a full view of the beach right off the balcony you could not ask for a better place. Rooms are a good size and the whole feel of the place is very relaxing. Wish we had planned to stay longer here!
Malcolm was also extremely helpful in getting us bookings on an overfilled Great Barrier Reef tour. I'm sure we would not have been able to do it without his help.
With the beach literally across the street (with lifeguard!) and bus stop at the corner, this place made a perfect spot for us to get into the city when we wanted. We did not rent a car so the bus availability was crucial to us.
We would book this place again in a heart beat. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a relaxing stay with beach views!
I booked through Anna, who couldn't have been more help, asking how we would like the beds made up (as we needed three singles) arranged wonderful reef and forest trips as I asked her to do so. The appartment was clean, cool and comfortable, overlooking a safe bathing area protected from stingers to swim. They have breakfast on site if you don't want make your own and the boat club is perfect for a relaxed dinner. Malcom was a real star helping out with the airport travel. Thank you both and their lovely daughter Tahlia
What great hosts! Very welcoming and great help with bookings. Although the weather wasn't on our side, we had a great time. Beautiful large space with nice balcony right across from the ocean! Very quiet area, nice and relaxing :)
