Villa Gail is a unique place, which is very tranquil & refreshing. We loved the wonderful views. Gail was such a lovely hostess who made me feel I'd known her for years. Breakfast was delicious. Waking up to see the sun rising was an incredible experience. Am feeling fitter from all the steps. I highly recommend Villa Gail.

A gorgeous location with breathtaking views of Yorkeys Knob and Cairns Northern beaches. We were well taken care of by owner and operator, the lovely Gail, who made us feel sooo welcome and so much at home. She loves her job and it shows : ) Our room which was clean & comfortable, also came with its own stunning view...

This place is lovely and Gail is a thoughtful hostess. We stayed at A Villa Gail for three nights. Gail made us feel so welcome. We felt like part of the family! Situated on top of a hill, all rooms and terraces have spectacular views of the ocean. Our rooms were very clean and comfortable. Gail even left us cold...

I spent a week at A Villa Gail and used it as my base to explore the area. Gail, the owner, does everything! From picking you up at the airport, dropping you off at the train station, taking you into town for supplies, to preparing your fresh fruit breakfast every morning. She also arranged any trips that I wanted to...

Enjoyed the fruit breakfast, magnificent views, a warm welcome, a great host, and the relaxed feel to a clean premises. We enjoyed our stay in the room overlooking the ocean directly. There is off street parking too. Quiet suburb of North Cairns with just a few shops for your essentials. Airport about 15 min drive away.

I stayed at Gail's B&B in November 2013. I had been exploring the Cairns region, with trips to the rain forest and the deserted beaches of Cape Trib. Then I stayed on the MV Kangaroo Explorer for two nights, snorkelling the great barrier reef. The food on the boat was plentiful, and the corals and the marine life were fantastic!...

I just enjoyed my second stay at Villa Gail and it was just as wonderful as my first. I highly recommend Villa Gail for James Cook Uni (JCU) external students and visiting academics needing accommodation. JCU is a short bus ride away. Gail picks you up and drops you off at the airport which is a terrific service. The rooms...

If you only ever get to stay in one b&b in your lifetime you should make sure it is A Villa Gail! The towels are fluffy, the bed huge and luxurious, the room ( the king room) absolutely stunning and the tropical fruit and toast breakfast fit for royalty. Gail is possibly one of the kindest people you'll ever meet,...

This place is absolutely gorgeous, with views that are second to none! Gail was incredibly welcoming and just a lovely person all round. The room was quaint and very homely. No complaints at all- was such a lovely stay and I would definitely recommend it to any friends travelling to this area!

Great hospitality from Gail. The villa shows its age a bit but that adds to its charm. Fantastic sea views from all angles. The villa rambles down the cliff towards the sea. Simply unique, relaxing and peaceful
