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 :)
Yorkeys Knob is a very quiet area outside of Cairns, but a perfect location to see the sights in the region. The apartment was just what our family of four needed, allowing us plenty of space, a beautiful view of the beach, and a place that felt more like a home than a vacation rental. We had our own car, and were able to park easily on property, but transport to and from the apartment was offered and readily available.
Malcolm, Anna, and Tahlia were gracious hosts. Had I not already made our sightseeing arrangements, they would have happily booked for us. Malcolm was kind enough to arrange a dinner location for us our first evening before we had a chance to visit the local grocery store. We only had a brief stay with them, but would have enjoyed spending more time getting to know them.
I don't know that we'll ever have a chance to visit again, but I would certainly recommend this location to anyone visiting the Cairns area.
This place is to be highly recommended for a stay in Cairns. Right in front of the very spacious and well equipped apartment there is a beautiful sandy beach (with a life guard). From the apartment's balcony, you have a fantastic view on the beach and the ocean, so that we were actually tempted not to leave this place at all. However, there is a lot to see in this area, and Anna booked us on several great trips (Kuranda, Hartley's creek crocodile park, Great Barrier reef). She organized that we were picked up from and brought back to the apartment, so this was all very convenient. I can only say that Malcolm, Anna and Thalia did everything to make our stay as beautiful and relaxing as possible. Malcolm runs a shop in the basement, where we had breakfast every morning and burgers at the rest of the day. Finally, Malcolm picked us from the airport and brought us there when unfortunately the time of our departure arrived. There is nothing more you can ask from a host. We would book this place any time again, and I hope that I will be able to someday return to this very lovely place.
Anna & Malcolm made us all very welcome and nothing was too much trouble for them, we loved that Anna was able to make trip bookings for us and that the use of the sports equipment and deck chairs were complementry.
The accomodation was a great size for our family and had everything you needed the beds & pillows were comfy, showers were hot and powerful.
Most morning I was up to see the sun rise, some mornings I sat on the large balcony with a cuppa or I would pop over to the sandy beach.
Our stay in The Beach Place was relaxing and peaceful.
Thank you Anna and Malcolm hope to see you again in the future.
Our hosts Anna, Malcolm and Tahlia made us all feel really welcome and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The apartment was beautiful and we particularly enjoyed eating on the balcony and watching the sea. Bedrooms were very comfortable and the kitchen was very well equipped. Yorkeys knob is a great area with good transport links into Cairns, lots of activities to do locally including scuba diving on the Great Barrier Reef and visiting the Skyrail, plus lots of useful local shops.
Thanks to Anna Malcolm Thalia and Mike we had a great start to our Aussie adventure.The place was just perfect in location and facilities especially with the beautiful beach and cafe so close. We were treated like family and looked after so well. We had some unforgettable experiences and really appreciate the trips organised by Anna. The Beach Place is the best place and it offers everything you could possibly need for a perfect Queensland holiday.
