Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • The communication from Malcolm and Anna was great the whole way. When we arrived, Malcolm was there to meet us. The place was spotless, quiet and very comfortable. Both Malcolm and Anna (and Tahlia!) were fantastic hosts and made our stay very enjoyable! I wouldnt hesitate to stay with them again or recommend their place to anyone else. Absolutely incredible location and place to stay... Thank you very much Malcolm, Anna, Tahlia, Mike and Jahda; you guys made a great vacation an amazing one!

  • Malcolm & his family were very friendly hosts with good communication. We had a brief stay & found the apartment clean, spacious, & with a lovely balcony & ocean view. The location has a nice quiet beach with swimming area. Plan on driving or using public transport if you want a variety of restaurants or activities to do. Thank you for the hospitality & opening your place for us Malcolm!

  • The Beach Place really was a home away from home. Malcolm, Anna and Taleigha are a fantastic family and extremely welcoming. We enjoyed a few nights having a beer and a good chat, and Anna booked all the tours for us.
    The apartment was perfect, with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, combined living/kitchen/meals area and a balcony overlooking the water, and a lifeguard patrolled beach directly opposite (email hidden).
    Yorkeys Knob is a great location it is also easy to get too all the attractions that the area has to offer.
    We will be back to stay again, and can recommend the Beach Place to anyone who wants a great relaxing holiday!!

  • We loved our stay here and we would recommend it to anyone. Malcolm and his whole family were very friendly and always made sure we had everything we wanted. He got us coupons for several of the places we were visiting and let us use his kayaks for free. He even showed us how to use them. Thanks again, we really appreciated everything.

  • Staying at Malcolm's place by the beach was the best decision we could have made. The apartment itself was absolutely lovely and Malcolm, Anna, and Tahlia treated us like family. They had us over for a barbecue and Anna helped us book all of our events. If you are considering coming to Cairns and staying at a hotel, THINK AGAIN! Staying in the apartment you will get to experience all the wonderful wildlife sights and sounds of Australia AND be right across the street from a fantastic beach. Thank you, Malcolm, Anna and Tahlia for making our trip to Australia the best it could possibly have been.

  • A lovely spacious apartment just across the road from the beach. The apartment itself was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. In addition, we had the most friendly and attentive hosts in Anna, Malcolm and their lovely daughter Tahlia. I would have no hesitation in highly recommending The Beach Place. A fantastic place to stay.

  • We had a wonderful time during our week stay at the Beach Place. The apartment was perfect for my husband and me and our daughter and her partner. The apartment was spacious, clean and had lots of natural light. The location was great...right across from a lovely beach. Malcolm and Anna were wonderful hosts...very friendly and accessible. We would definitely recommend The Beach Place

  • Our family had a fantastic holiday in Cairns and our accommodations at the Beach Place were a perfect launchpad for our daily activities. The rooms were all very clean and comfortable and the hospitality of Malcolm and Anna was superb. When we arrived, we didn't really have an agenda or any events planned, but after speaking with Malcolm we had every activity planned and we didn't have to do a thing. Malcolm did all of the bookings on our behalf. It was like having a full service concierge as part of the apartment rental. Furthermore, on our last night in town Malcolm and Anna hosted a BBQ and had us down as their guests. I would absolutely recommend the Beach Place for any family looking for a great place to stay near Cairns. You will get the full flexibility and freedom of an apartment with the same service and hospitality as you might find at a hotel.

  • Wow, fantastic home from home accommodation with spectacular views and only few steps to the sea and a wonderful sandy beach. The Beach Place is set on quiet road ideal for relaxing yet has supermarket, bottle shop, restaurant and take away very close by. The hosts Malcolm, Anna and Tahlia are wonderful they went out of their way to make us welcome, sort out trips, loaned equipment and cooked us a fabulous BBQ they are really lovely. This was like a true taste of Australia living not a commercial holiday resort and if we get to visit again wouldn't stay anywhere else. We ate at the Yacht club, had takeaway from supermarket and had best meal at Krokadillos. Thanks very much we had a memorable holiday and hope to be back sometime.

  • Just truly awesome hosts that treat you like family. I have noticed that we have also left without paying potentially $several hundred ASDs in deposits for the various trips that Malcolm & Anna kindly organised for us - I will resolve this ASAP. You are such great hosts offering a truly memorable experience - we look forward to returning!!!
