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!

We had so so much fun. I highly recommend that you must be... More

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

Would have liked to stay there, but did not get an answer from the owner for several weeks, until it was too late. She misread my mail, thinking we tried to book a month later than I wrote. Pity because other reviews were very good.

We spent two nights at Villa Gail and are already looking forward to going back to this amazing B&B as soon as we can! The views are magnificent (during the day but also at night, breathtaking moonlight!) the villa is beautiful and full of charm but perhaps the best aspect of our stay was our hostess Gail! She made us... More

You just cannot go past this spot. Although in need of its upcoming refurbishment, this B&B still delivers everything you need for a relaxing stay. From Gail the hostess who treats you like family to the unforgettable ocean and sunrise views from both levels of the 2 bed villa. Make this a must stay while in the Cairns area. Reminiscent...

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.
