Imagine a place equipped with everything you need....a complete kitchen, wifi access, cozy living space, a soft, comfortable bed, and even access to laundry facilities. Now imagine that place to be right across a quiet road from a beautiful sandy beach with amazing sunrise views. Then imagine your hosts to be warm, welcoming and wonderful, and you have a small part of what makes this spot magical. Away from the hustle and bustle of the city, you still have access to transportation, either to the city or whatever excursion you'd like to plan, as well as hosts to help you choose what's just right for you. We have stayed at many airbnb spots, both at home and internationally, but I have to rank this most highly. Thank you, Malcolm, Anna and Talia, for making our visit very special.
Oh, and you can listen to the kookaburra and other Australian birds too. A definite plus!
Malcolm and Anna were incredible hosts. They were very accommodating with our late arrival and our last minute planning to take a day trip to the Outter Reef (everything was taken care of before we arrived). They room exceeded our expectations and having a kitchen was wonderful. They were both very knowledgable about the area and had so many great recommendations. We enjoyed getting to spend sometime with Malcom, Anna, and Tahlia during our short stay and hope to visit them again!
Malcolm, his daughter, and his wife were very welcoming. They seem to very much enjoy being hosts and will most likely invite you to join them for conversations and/or meals. They were also kind enough to upgrade us to a beachfront apartment on the same street and to give us recommendations of places to visit. They also offered to book us tours and activities to do during our stay. I would absolutely recommend staying at any of their establishments.
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.
We enjoyed our stay at the Beach Place a lot. Malcolm, Anna and their daughter Tahlia are wonderful hosts and we felt very welcome during our entire stay. They went to great lengths to make our stay as comfortable as possible and even organised a cot for our baby.
The hosts are also very knowledgeable about the area and can book activities for you if required. Their recommendations were always spot on.
The apartment is nice, spacious and impeccably clean. The location is superb too, right at the beach and conveniently situated next to the guarded swimming area. Further, the location is quiet and relaxing and lends itself well as a base to explore the Cairns area.
We would definitely book again and can recommend this listing without hesitation.
Malcolm, Anna, and their daughter made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. I'd like to say we're great planners but when we arrived we had nothing booked. Anna & Malcolm took care of it - booking everything for us - sometimes even after-hours. Thanks to them we got to snorkel/dive the reef twice, see the reef from a small sightseeing plane, swim in a beautiful fresh water river with waterfall, and learn to paddle board!
Quiet when we wanted it but lively when we didn't - there's always something to do at The Beach Place. Whether it's lounging on the deck listening to birds, sunning on the beach, swimming, or talking to locals as they stop by the store to say hello or get some supplies, it's a wonderful place to vacation. The beach is literally across the street and thanks to the time difference I saw the sunrise over the beach almost everyday. We swam every day, at odd hours, because it was so convenient. While we traveled during jelly season, there was a very large net installed at the beach in front of the Beach Place so jellies didn't stop us from taking advantage of the water.
The apartment was as pictured, with washer and dryer in the unit (though we air dried our clothes). The living space was wonderfully breezy and we left the windows open the entire time. It was nice to have a full kitchen table, especially when we had to squeeze in a bit of work during our time there. Wireless was fast, free, and reliable - not to be taken for granted in Australia. For you coffee (espresso) lovers, they have a "real" espresso machine downstairs and Malcolm will be happy to make you a long-black or whatever you're keen to drink that day.
In summary, the apartment was spacious and made our stay feel as comfortable as a luxury hotel. Anna, Malcolm and their daughter made our stay feel like a family visit. We hope to visit them again someday.
We had a great time here in your very comfortable apartment. (Shower is fab!) It's a great base from which to explore all the things which the area has to offer. Thanks to Malcolm and Anna for their helpful tips and advice. We were truly reef struck!
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.
Thanks to Malcolm, Anna, and Tahlia, our first trip to Australia was AMAZING! They made us feel very welcome and were there to help us book our snorkeling, scuba diving, and rainforest trips. Very knowledgeable and professional - there were a lot of options to choose from and Anna helped us find the best one for our budget. Super happy and scuba diving on the great barrier reef was a dream come true for us.
The room (Unit 3) was spacious and really clean. Large kitchen with a dishwasher. You can hear the ocean at night from the patio and the first night we were there, we slept on the couch so that we could hear the ocean all night.
It was springtime during our stay, and I would definitely recommend this time of year to visit. There's a lot of beautiful birds and wildlife that you will see everyday (gecko, cockatail parrots, molluscs washing up on shore) and the temperature was perfect.
Anna cooked dinner for us one night during our stay, delicious!!! My first time having Pavlova (an Australian dessert) - it was incredible. Such sweet, kind people. Definintely recommend this one.
Mit Hilfe des Navigationsgeräts in unserem Mietwagen erreichten wir The Beach Place vom Airport in Cairns aus schnell und problemlos. Wir wurden herzlich empfangen und bekamen viele Informationen und nützliche Tipps. Unser Appartment im dritten Stock mit Balkon und Meerblick war sehr geräumig, gut eingerichtet und sauber. Anna buchte für uns eine Tour zum Great Barrierer Reef, die ein tolles Erlebnis war. Während unseres Aufenthalts kamen Stammgäste zu Besuch und wir wurden zu einem gemeinsamen Abendessen eingeladen. Malcom, Anna und Tahlia sind eine sehr nette und herzliche Gastgeberfamilie. Im Vergleich zum Trubel in Cairns ist Yorkeys Knob ein ruhiger, idyllischer Ort mit Traumstrand. Die Lage von The Beach Place war für uns perfekt. Hier kann man die Seele baumeln lassen und auftanken.
