We stayed here twice in May. Gail is a wonderful person and looks after her guests superbly. The site of her house is memorable, one could just sit and look out all day and night. Our room was spacious and had everything we needed.

Yes Mason, I MISS YOU TOO! I could hear you in the background when I was speaking with Gail. I left withou even saying "Goodbye", but then they say, you should never say "Goodbye". You are such a Lucky Dog, living in this beautiful piece of paradise. I will come back before the Summer. I hope you are keeping an... More

Spent 2 lovely nights here.The views are panoramic ocean views from this villa. Even the standard twin room has an ocean view. Gail, the host, is so friendly and helpful. Fruit breakfast was included. We drove a short distance to the beautiful beach but it would be a very steep walk up the winding hill. Free WiFi is available. The... More

I stayed at Villa Gail over Easter break with my sister. the room is clean when we arrive. Gail is such a wonderful host as she knows we had to wake up early the next day for our tours and she still prepared breakfast for us, and the views are absolutely to die for. Every morning I wake up catching... More

Loved my stay at Villa Gail! She is the most wonderful host and the views are to die for! If your looking for something that is close to everything, but don't want to be in the midst of traffic and tourists, this is definitely the place to be! Will be back for sure!

I recently had a week at A Villa Gail in Yorkey's Knob in Far North Queensland. Tropical fruit breakfast and the most amazing view was the start to my days, with the chirping of birds being the only outside noise. Cairns, Port Douglas and the Atherton Tablelands were within easy reach, and a swim in the pool rounded off a... More

We had a great time at A Villa Gail. The property is amazing and has spectacular views. The location was very convenient for getting into the main area of Cairns, as well as up to the Daintree and Port Douglas. Gail is lovely and she was a wonderful host, I only wish we could have stayed longer!

What a character-oozing gem! Located on Millionaires Row, Yorkeys Knob, this sprawling, tiered 70's Mediteranean-style mansion must have the most fabulous views and se breeze on the Cairns coastline. Look out over the Coral Sea to Fitzroy Island while being looked after by your fabulous, friendly and caring hostess, Gail. My Mother and I shared the King room and we... More

As a solo female traveller, sometimes it can be hard to find safe and affordable lodging. A Villa Gail had both of these and more. A Villa Gail was recommended to me by a friend for its views and host. And I was not disappointed! Gail picked me up from the airport, was willing to drop me off and pick... More
