We stayed in Gavlin's Edge for three nights and loved it - we could happily have stayed longer. The accommodation is spacious, clean, tasteful and well equipped. It is also more private than many B&Bs as it is only offered to one family at a time and there is no requirement to be out during the day. You can also... More

If you're looking for a top quality B&B in Cairns, look no further. Not only is the accommodation spotlessly clean, well furnished and comfortable, but the whole is so much more than the parts. In particular it's the very special blend of warm welcome from Julie and Jesse, the attention to detail and the relaxed atmosphere that makes Galvin's Edge... More

I stayed here last year as well and wouldn't consider staying anywhere else. Beautiful, clean, very attractive and welcoming accommodation and hosts. Julie and Jesse make you feel like a returning friend rather than guest and the continental breakfasts are fresh and tasty. The 'private' pool is an added bonus. Overall, I had a lovely stay and would definitely stay... More
