Ivan is a wonderful host nothing was too much trouble.it wasn't too far away from anywhere but made you feel you were in your own little paradise. I would highly recommend for anyone of any age to go there... More

Ivan and Lorena have a beautiful B&B in the rainforest right next to a mountain stream. It's quiet and secluded (except for exotic wild bird calls), and the rooms are comfortable and well designed. The breakfast is exceptional, the best we had in Australia. They are also helpful with excursion arrangements, and in the evening there is a lovely salt... More

My parents in law stay at the B&B for a couple of days in April 2010. They have very poor english but that wasn't a problem thanks to Ivan and Lorina's kindness. They took really care of them, making sure that they were enjoying their stay and sending us emails almost everyday to keep us up-to-date. My parents in law... More

This is simply the best B&B! Fabulous location, the best breakfasts, hot tub & pool, what more could you ask for? It is a perfect place to stay - I cannot recommend Cairns Reef 'n Rainforest highly enough. Ivan goes out of his way to ensure that your stay is the best - his advice on trips is second to... More

We loved it here. The quiet, rain forest atmosphere, the lovely, clean saltwater pool, the charming family pets, the excellent food and most especially, the extraordinary hosts with their genuine, warm hospitality and painstaking attention to detail... my husband and I enjoyed every minute of our stay. No need went unmet. Ivan and Lorina, along with their 2 delightful children,... More

From the moment I arrived I was looked after. Ivan and Lorna arranged a hired car for me, arranged collection from the airport, it was all done. When I arrived at the B&B I was amazed, not another house or building to be seen just lovely trees, birds and a beautiiful room! However to get in to town was easy,... More

I was looking for something close enough to the CBD of Cairns but far enough away to relax after a days work. This place was just great. A perfect retreat into another little world amongst the rainforest. The room was very clean and the breakfast was great. The owners warm and accomodating. Highly recomend, I would stay again.

My wife and vacationed throughout Queensland in June 2010. By the time we left we had stayed in just about every type of accommodation available in Queensland from B&B to Island Resort, backpacker hotel/motels, hostels and luxury US style hotels. We started our trip at Ivan and Lorina's B&B and enjoyed it so much we extended out stay in Cairns... More

What marvellous hosts Ivan and family were- they made our stay so enjoyable. The room was superb with an extremely comfortable bed and the view from the veranda amazing! Ivan's breakfasts were gourmet standard. Day trips were speedily arranged for us, and we were even driven to the airport. Excellent all round!

We stayed in Cairns to kick off a dive trip and found this B&B through Trip Advisor. What a beautiful place to stay. Ivan helped us set up our dive trip and we corresponded months before we got there. He was above and beyond in every respect, so helpful, we could not have had the amazing trip we did without...
